30 Days Until Wii U: Did You Pre-Order?

IGN - Why some of us can't wait for Wii U - and why some of us can.

In exactly 30 days, the next generation of video game consoles will officially kick off. Half of you are rolling your eyes at that statement and half of you are probably nodding in agreement, so I reached out to my fellow IGN editors to see if things were just as divisive around here.

Nope, probably going to wait a year or two before I get a WiiU, have been burned by early adoption way too many times.

The WiiU can wait. In the meantime, I'm getting Halo 4 and Assassins Creed 3.

Till then, I still have plenty of upcoming PS3 games coming out soon and next year:-)

Pre-ordered Deluxe Edition with Mario U, Zombie U and a Pro Controller. Can't wait for the midnight launch and a couple days of calling in sick. Got BlOps 2 on the 13th, Wii U on the 18th and PSASBR on the 20th. I paid it all off already so my wallet won't hurt so much. I'm still trying to decide on one more game for the Wii U launch though. I've narrowed it down to Scribblenauts, Tekken Tag 2 or Assassin's Creed 3. Obviously I would automatically pick AC3, but I don't know if it will have trophies/achievements of the Wii U. If not, I'll get it for PS3 since it has bonus content. Ahhh... first world problems... how do I manage?

I've no problem getting the Wii U. They have a great launch window. It's not like the PS3 were all you were getting was a Blu-ray player and Resistance:Fom and have to wait 2-3 years to get some good games to play.

I agree. I've always been an early adopter but this gen I was just burned too badly. Numerous 360 hardware issues and with the Wii, I had no idea just how much I'd hate the Wii-mote, and how it's motion control would just be tacked on to everything replacing the most basic button presses with waggles. I wanted to like it as I've always been a huge Nintendo fan, but I couldn't force myself to play the damn thing.

With the Wii-U, right out of the gate it has the pro-controller which gives me hope for playing the types of games I like the way I want, but I'll still wait a year or two. This gen's got some decent legs to it and I'm in no hurry. It's not like I've got a shortage of games to play. The backlog of excellent games alone that I haven't had time to play yet would probably last me the next couple of years even if not another single game came out this gen.

I went ahead and preordered the deluxe but I was thinking about selling it for a little extra cash more then anything although there is a possibility I'll keep it.

I don't pre-order. I reserve.

GuruStarr782008d ago

Yup.... got me a black one... can't wait!

Indeed. Pre-ordered a Premium Pack along with (reluctantly), New Super Mario Bros. U. I'm sure the game will be good but after rinsing New Super Mario Bros 2 only a month or 2 ago, kind of wanted a break from Mario for a while. But seeing as Rayman was delayed, was the next best thing. Not long now.

What i'm really looking forward to is Wii U's Q1 2013 line up. Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3 and Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate is easily 150 Hours + of AAA quality entertainment. My wallet isn't ready.
