Wii-U Release: Anybody Buying?

In fact, I am not sure I am going to buy anymore consoles, to be honest. My gaming has tapered off big time in recent years. My Xbox 360 ended up getting very little use and I bought only 7 actual xbox 360 games (others being original xbox games), so I ended up just giving it to my brother. I figure at that rate, I would be better off just getting a PC version of a game, if I really want it, rather than dropping coin on another console.

But I'm not in love with motion controls as they often feel forced into games and aren't really at a level that's fun in many games (see: Zelda games), the gimmick of the pad will lose it's appeal quickly as few games make good use of it.
I really want to be in, and if I had a ton of money I would probably buy one, but there are more important things for me to spend my money on.

A new GOOD Metroid game wouldn´t hurt either. But with 3rd party support this time around I´m pretty excited about just about everything except the control itself. That will probably get old very soon.

I just love the cellshade! Sure, it´s cartoony but when playing the exact same fairytale for the eleventh time... what´s better than making it look like a kid´s acrtoon as well?
It just didn't do anything for me. The gameplay was great.
Because of that though, my second favorite is a link to the past.

New Zelda game announced för Wii U but no details yet. And a remake for Wii U of "The Wind Waker", IMO the second best Zelda game ever. (After "Ocarina of time" of course.) Bring em on!
If they announced that Wind Waker had the lost levels, I might actually consider getting a Wii U. I'm not that excited about buying the system though. The graphics are on-par with the PS3 and 360, and I see the pad as nothing more than a distraction from gaming on the big screen.
The last Nintendo console I'd bought was a Gamecube, and I would probably pick up a used Wii, before I plunged into paying full price for a Wii U.

So compared to that, Wii U will probably be a failure. But meanwhile, I can play Zombi U and wait for Bayonetta 2 and at least pretend that this time around there will be more good hardcore games. Like at least one.

so i bit the bullet and bought a wii u (black 32gb) the other night. i'm pretty critical of nintendo, but if they do one thing right, it's their first party games. the first party games that are out now is worth the purchase of the wii u for me. got it used for $269 at my local vintage stock. for now, just have mario kart 8 along with assassins creed 3 that i picked up for $8.
this thing is a blast. me and my son have had some quality time with it, and i'm really surprised at how great this system is. it's a real shame that the 3rd party support sucks so terribly, bad i'm at that point in my life where i'm pretty happy and content with playing games with my son, and if it entails mario, link and kirby, so be it.

Almost two years later and I still have no interest whatsoever in it. What's already available on the system is just rehashed versions of Nintendo franchises I've already re-bought on each system. At this point the only thing that's going to get me to buy is a new Zelda game that completely re-invents its own wheel.
