What is it that convinced you to get a Wii U over a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360?

I thought the PS4 would have PS3 backwards compatibility, so I sold my PS3 to pay for a Wii U, figuring I should sell it then before it dropped in value. I didn't want an Xbox 360 because...well...I already had a PS3, and there weren't any 360-exclusive games I wanted, and I don't like the idea of having to pay to play games online.

Yeah...things didn't really work out.

Already had both a 360 ( which I traded as that is the worst purchase anyone can make) and a PS3 ( still have it).

Plus the fact that I've always "mained" Nintendo with Sony supporting ( sans the Wii).

To play the first party games they'll eventually release.

Seriously, that's the number one reason anyone buys a Nintendo console...could you imagine someone owning a Nintendo console and never playing one of the first party games?

Good exclusives.
Mega Man Powered Up is the best PSP exclusive and you know it.

Well I own a Blu-ray/Netflix station 3
And I traded my X-box 360 for my Wii U. I got the Wii U to play good games.
If I go to work, who's going to play all my games?

Because I'm a Nintendo fanboy, I buy all Nintendo systems at launch, and I only buy Nintendo systems.

I haven't yet, but will in hoping for a One Piece game due to One Piece being on several systems already.
