16 Age-Specific Reasons You Need A Wii U

Success is a slippery word. For us gamers this has become ruled by meta-critic scores and retail sales. While games are admittedly designed to make money, for many success is measured differently. This is why we easily miss-judge the early years of platforms like the Wii U.

Some of our favorite games in my family have been on platforms that would not have existed without weathering periods of by-the-numbers failure. Games like Go Vacation may not be commercial power-houses but have offered us many happy hours of four-player open world exploration. Titles like Wii-Sports Resort (that pales next to the original release in terms of unit sales and review scores) have been a huge success for our family play time. It sounds like hyperbole I know, but between us we have played over 1000 hours on Wii Sports Table Tennis alone, a craze that re-emerged again this summer.

Setting aside those business concerns for a moment, and focusing on the games, let’s look at what the Wii U has to of...

Why not now?, At this time there are good discounts / offers and there are good games coming out at the end of the year (Pikmin 3, the wonderfull 101, etc.)

"and there are good games coming out at the end of the year (Pikmin 3, the wonderfull 101, etc.)"

You just answered your own question. The great games are coming out at the end of the year, not now. And by the end of the year, the WiiU will probably get a price drop to compete with the PS4/Xbone.

U mostly need a Wii U if your age is between 6 to 12 years old :P

Why everyone says wii u is the default console for kids?, There are very good games "E" in sony and microsoft (for example the franchise of little big planet)

CLOUD19831023d ago (Edited 1023d ago )

Don't tell me that this is the first time hearing this line? I see it all the time from parents gamers who say I have this (PS3/360) console for me & this (Wii) console for my kids, Wii = kids console by default no matter how hard Ninty try to change that image it's pointless, their console have mostly platforms games I mean do u know a lot of guys 20-30+ who still play Mario? :P

will buy wii u when some of those games

Monolith Software New Game,
Donkey Kong Country - Tropical Freeze,
Mario 3D World,
Wii Party U,
Mario Kart 8,
Pikmin 3,

are out.

And I can understand why third parties dont find the Wii U attractive, I would prefer playing 3rd party games on my ps3 or ps4 when I got one. Only buying Wii U because of exclusives (and mostly nintendo owned IPs)
