Wii U: Buy Now, Play Later – Reader’s Feature

GameCentral Reader: ''The news coming out of Nintendo HQ this week is that the Wii U isn’t looking to make any significant price cuts any time soon despite having failed to meet the company’s initial sales targets. Whilst the news won’t come as too much of a shock given the short period of time that the Wii U has been available, is it really a move that Nintendo should even be thinking of making this early on?'' (Wii U)

Yeah.. Haven't looked at the article yet but based on the sensationalistic headline, I'd like to say "buy now, play now!!!"

With the best version of COD BLOPS 2, an HD Mario, an AC3 with off-tv play, miiverse, an eshop lpaded with games, and the best Internet browser on the console market, there is no way that the wii u will be a purchase that yields 0 entertainment value.

I commend earlier articles that read "stop wii u doom and gloom." They should also read, "stop opportunistic pri**s" who seek nothing more than hits on their cruddy website, which offers nothing more than armchair commentary and uninformed, unsolicited explication of out-of-context statements."

Pardon my brashness, but the fanboy console wars (FBWs) are driving me a little bit crazy. The maker doesn't matter, folks. Where are the real gamers???The experience does. And in my opinion, there has been too much opinion portrayed as fact about the wii u from people who have neither played it nor given it a real chance.

Thanks, and goodnight.

OK, I read the article. It is very fair and balanced. I made the previous statement prematurely. Great, thoughtful writer of this particular. The headline is still definitely a bit of a hit-generator, but nonetheless.. I recommend the content therein.
