Doesn't matter to me I have a gaming pc. You know it'll probably be hard to find those since everyones going to be buying them for their ps4. ps4 games take at least 40GBs of free space to install.

Don't get me wrong I'll be buying one eventually but right now I just think it's a good call to get a wiiu.

i stayed away from wii because of the games and controllers, i think i might get one now though as the old xbox struggles on some streaming videos.

and because they are so cheap now they are about the same price or a tiny bit more as an xbox original here. from $2-$80 might get one for the lounge for xmas. but not a wii-u.

There's like tons of games for wii now, I never really got into most of them. But you can grab a console around $50, great for emulation. I think it can support 4tb also

Ok Ken heres an unbiased guy, you KNOW I HATE SONY, and I think XBOX-One is GAY. So onto the nuts and bolts. The Wii-U is just a 360 with a fancy (or crappy depending on view) controller. Its last gen hardware, and unless they have the "exclusive" I use quotes since exclusive is a load of crap, it remains exclusive like a month or two in most cases (based on PC/PS3/360) its not worth it. Only advantage I see to the Wii-u is Nintendos security is worse than WIndows security. Damn I feel dirty now I just stood up for M$ and Sony.

LMFAO HARD TO FIND? Man they will be EVERYWHERE. PS4 isnt gonna magicaly drain the laptop and desktop SATA market. Seriously such an idea is beyond delusional. If such a thing were ever to happen, dont you think PCs and laptops would have drained the market by now? Go to any Best Buy, PC shop etc, they have hundreds if not thousands of 3.5+ HDDs on the shelves and in the back. I have a better chance of winning the lottery and nailing two porn stars in the same day, then PS4 has of draining the HDD market/

I have a gaming pc, wii u already has all the titles I want on it. Nuff said. You don't need high end hard ware. Have you been paying attention to comparison videos between xbox one/ps4/360/ps3? They really don't look all that better.
Most games I'm interested in will be ported to pc. You said it yourself why buy a gaming console when you got a bad ass pc?
Why should I bust out an extra $100-200 bucks on a console if I already have a gaming pc. I think right now the Wii u is at a fair price since you can get bundles around 300.

Another reason I'm leaning towards Wii u because it will be the first console hacked, well it's already has been but wont read wii u discs yet. And sue me for liking those Nintendo games it's what I grew up with. Laughing

Wii u's has sold a bit more units if the units so bad why was it pushing 1080p @ 60fps at e3?



I don't know why, maybe it's just because I grew up with Nintendo but I don't see it as a bad console at all, people are just complaining it's low on gaming titles - you of all people should know you don't need high end gaming specs to be able to game on something. Other advantages free online play with wiiu and really the server connections isn't that bad a bit slow but not that bad.

But right now think I'll wait on owning one and pick up a handheld. By mid june next ear next gens should have a price drop anyway.
All I'm trying to point out is if you have a gaming pc and a 360 but still want to play some new launch titles on a console the wii u should fit you good.

I was joking about the harddrive thing btw

NOPE. NO ATTENTION, since I plan on getting a PS4 or XBOX-One like I plan on getting a STD LMAO

As for FPS its pushing that cause any old qulaity PC or 360 can push it. Like I said unless its for the games dont do it. Its a suicide buy from a hardware view. If you like the exclusives/Ninty games then man fuck what me or anybody else has to say JUST DO IT

Im not gonna fanboy excuse you, My post is solely based on hardware spec, and my personal hate for Ninty exclusives. Very biased and not admissable in a court of Ken lol

Just for the record Ken, 1080 meaqns jackshit. I was pushing 1080 back in 04 with my ATI 3650, and 360/PS3(?) were from day one. Also remember in many cases its just like XBOX1 and 720P/1080i its just 480P crap upsized. Maybe Ninty isnt such a whore as MS I dont know, but 1080P as news is like saying Ive got a nuke, guess what we had that like 65 years ago lol
