10 Reasons To Buy A Nintendo Wii U Today

Nintendo launches the first new game console in six years with the Wii U on November 18, just before Black Friday and the Christmas shopping season. The new console is guaranteed to be in short supply this year with analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities expecting about 1.5 million hardware units for the U.S.

But at the end of the day, it’s not the $300 or $350 (for the Deluxe set) price point that will dictate Nintendo’s success. It’s the games. Nintendo has 29 games available for its launch, which officially kicks off at the Nintendo World store in New York’s Rockefeller Center with Nintendo President and COO Reggie Fils-Aimes. Below are 10 reasons, or games, to pick up a Wii U, and a video to show you each title in action. (Nintendo, NintendoLand, Rayman Legends, Reggie Fils-Aime, Wii U, ZombiU)

The main reason for me to buy a Wii U would be the fact that Monster Hunter will be on it. That would and more than likely will be the main draw for me; but of course I'm looking at some more games as well.

The main reason that I bought a Wii U is that I am a gamer.

Nah

Monster Hunter in 1080p/60fps is a given! I'm also getting it for the the Gamepad, great first and third-party support, and the fact that it's a Nintendo HD console...

"10 Reasons To Buy A Nintendo Wii U Today"

I'll give you one good reason why I won't buy a Nintendo Wii U today: It comes out tomorrow. :)

All joking aside, I already have my Deluxe Edition on the way. ;)

1 reason not to ps4 and xbox 3 come out in a year or 2
hduce  +   896d ago
And I will buy them too.
Deku-Johnny  +   896d ago
So why not play the Wii U for a year or two until then?
2pacalypsenow  +   896d ago
cuz i have a ps3 and xbox 360 and a pc
Deku-Johnny  +   895d ago
But all those suck.
jbgamer  +   896d ago
How is that a reason? Next year the wii u will be on it's second generation of games while sony, and microsoft will bring out systems that will be launching? And sorry launch games can be good, well ps3, and 360 where not good, but to just assume they will be better without proof shows you are just another fan who cannot give an honest or fair opinion.

I am not buying into it so quickly. ZombiU is looking more mediocre the more I see of it and I am sorry but NSMBU and Tekken tag 2 is not enough to justify buying that system, there are barely any games for it at release and most the ones that will be there are all ports.. fairly old ones at that besides AC3..

About all interesting after that is what Ninja Gaiden and Warrior Orochi 3 which probably won't be that amazing as they never have been before. Warrior Orochi looks horrible, how it looks worse than Dynasty Warriors I have no idea, I guess they didn't give a crap.

MH is great sure but there are plenty of games coming out that could easily compete or possible even surpass MH. I am not buying a system again just to play mainly one game, like i did with the 3DS which was MH..

I am tired of MH being the main reason I hear from anyone to buy Nintendo systems, it's quite pathetic. Or the opposite oh it doesn't have MH screw it.

Also I would never listen to damn word Forbes says about gaming, they don't know shit about gaming period.

Plus the whole patch thing enabling the features of the Wii U is disturbing. Why is that patch being released at launch?

Nintendo has been hiding the processor information forever now and now they are making sure Reviewers can't bash the online before hand so they make sure it sells by keeping that patch at bay until release..

How can you fairly judge a system from a journalistic stance when you can't even use nearly all it's features except play the games.

Also the way Nintendo has been designing things lately as far a functionality goes is completely retarded.. The pro controller has no headset jack? I have to plug it into the tablet even when I am using the pro controller.. How impractical is that..? beyond ridiculous.

Screw that, now that I think about all that screw that indeed..

I know the holidays may seem like a tough time for you since you're lonely and nobody cares enough to give you gifts. I feel your pain and frustration.
jbgamer  +   896d ago
Old ports like King kong, ridge racer 6? This was the 360 launch list, if this was the 720 would you say, oh wow there are some new features, and i have not played this yet? So nice job trolling nothing more just 1 big troll post.
djslimzz  +   896d ago
Omg....I want this now...and I want Zombie U.
Griffin4871  +   896d ago
I am excited for it, but I won't buy it until the library increases with some JRPGs, Zelda, and Smash. Then again, third-party developers can always surprise me in a couple of months. I am not stoked by the launch lineup, but that concept of the U is stellar and all I need is games of my preference.
BigTonytheDon  +   896d ago
Didn't need this to make my decision about buying the Wii U. Still, pretty cool article.

1 Reason to Buy the Wii U:
1. It's awesome.
AJBACK2FRAG  +   896d ago
I'm dying to see BO2 running on the WiiU. I played it on a 360 yesterday and wow really. I despise Microsoft but BO2 and unbelieveably Halo 4 look incredible!
aquamala  +   896d ago
how can anyone call himself a "gamer" and not be excited about a new console launch?
Abdou23  +   896d ago
I'm on the fence here, on one hand i don't like most of the nintendo 1st party games ( mario,zelda,smash,metroid), on the other i'm very interested in that gamepad. And games like ZombiU & Pikmin looks interesting.
