Hmmm i wonder what the 249 model is missing from the 349 model. All seem like decent price points. At these prices im sure Wii u will sell really well irregardless of the specs (regardless of wether they are an advancement over the ps3 and xbox or not).

No hate here or trolling but i am very skeptical of the wiiu and wether i should get one based off what Ive seen and info coming out on its hardware capacity and power. However at a 250 price point i might have to dive in and shell out the money so i can play some of the most beloved franchises in HD like Mario and Zelda.

Its a day one purchase for me, its the first new hardware in six long years, its Nintendo's first HD consoles, of course I'm going to buy it right away.

Games have and will always be about the actual gameplay, the graphics being HD is a nice bonus, but having quality games and a decent online service is all I'm asking for, and Achievements.

Its going to be the hot holiday item this year, just like any new console at launch.

Yeah those price points if true have me tempted lol hahahaha im not going to lie. And there is nothing better than opening a new console box and opening your eyes with awe as you play with your console for the first time lol I feel the same way all the time since my sega master system days, to my turbografx days, SNES, Ps3, Vita and now maybe Wii u lol (just maybe)
