Is Now the Right Time to Buy a Wii U?

GotGame: As the old saying goes, “there’s no time like the present”, and that may certainly be the case for the struggling Nintendo Wii U, as Nintendo has quite a few AAA titles on the way for the system, as well as an impending price cut. (Wii U)

Not yet for me, I'm still waiting for SSMB and a new Zelda. I probably would have bought it for it's old price if these games were released already ...but I don't mind paying less now ;D

Nintendo will never get a sale from me as long as I live. After what mess they did with the Wii I'm done with Nintendo.

i bought one for the potential of playing the games you listed but in the mean time i do enjoy some really good wii games on it.

It really does make a difference visually on the regular wii games. Tatsunoko vs capcom....sooooo much better when played through a wii-u.

theres a lot of games worth playing on it now. super luigi DLC is one of the best side scrollers in years.

Yes I'm sure it is. But I've bought a Vita recently and got a huge backlog on my PS3 already so I have everything but time to enjoy all those games :/
But I'm definately getting a WiiU sooner or later, Nintendo games are still something special.

When it's $250 I'm down
But not before

Personally, I'd be hard-pressed to find a right time to buy a WiiU

wiiU is much fun without games . . with an internet connection that is
LOL_WUT  +   317d ago
Really? Without hardly any apps I find that hard to believe. ;)

Edit: Of course I own one why I be so vocal about it. I'll give you TVii but you must be grasping at straws if you mention Google street view. Other than that it has like what 5 other apps? Which btw could be done on a smartphone, tablet or on another console. ;)

What are you talking about? Tvii alone is a great app...Google street is freaking amazing and at first I thought it was going to be stupid. Youtube is better on U than PC. There is more then enough to do without even popping a game in. You are always on Wii U threads...You do own one don't you?

smart phone, tablet, diff experience rather a wiiU gamepad duh no equal value horrible comparison.

even though the youtube app sucks for wiiU, is still awesome using youtube browser on the gaming pad oh yea . and things will only get better ha haa

It's the right time to get the Wind Waker bundle, since it is for a limited time.
thomasmiller  +   317d ago
I agree with this article I think the holiday season will be a great time to get a wii u, all of the updates for the system, have been added, more apps like the artist maker, and more great indie games and virtual console is finally into full swing, and the great games like mario 3d coming out this fall? yes I agree, at 299.99 you get the system and a game, so zelda will probably be the system of choice, over nintendo land bundle, but I see this as a big turning point for nintendo, and a great year for great games, for us nintendo fans!!

I think I will wait.
All of the bundles that Nintendo keeps releasing make me paranoid.

Will I buy a WiiU only to see Nintendo release a Limited Ed. Gold WiiU with the next Zelda bundle?

When "X" or "SMT X FE" release will they give them a special Edition?

Anyway, I am mostly joking- but I would be somewhat disappointed if true.

I want the system but I'm going to wait until the next Smash Bros comes out.

Dude, get the windwaker bundle now, for the free game! Free good game!

Go for it, the rest of this year's lineup looks awesome.
leahcim  +   317d ago
I am expecting for X project, I will buy the wiiU just for this game.
rapidturtle  +   317d ago
Not with two much more powerful consoles releasing in a couple of months. I don't anticipate buying a Wii U at all.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   317d ago
I think now is the right time,the price is $300 and 2014 there will be alot of great games coming.
brianace  +   317d ago
Budget's tapped with the PS4 on pre-order for Nov 15. Their window to sell me on Wii U has passed.
vividi  +   317d ago
I think it is
exfatal  +   317d ago
I believe it is tons of great games coming out for it and even more of a game library to choose for people who didnt own a wii before. With the recent price cut and Zelda bundle out now. Would be a great purchase u wouldn't regret unlike most of the earlier adopters.
madjedi  +   317d ago
For the non hardcore nintendo guys upgrading to a new xbox or playstation in 3 months maybe next year sometime at the earliest.

I still think nintendo is at a $100-150 dollars above what the general gaming public is willing to pay for the wii u, which compared to the ps4 or one isn't next gen.

But i guess that makes me a shallow graphics whore according to many of the "true or real gamer/elite" bullshit posters/nintendo faithful.

The only positive thing is the wii u is finally building a appealing lineup for a secondary system, still has several braindead design choices like no usb 3.0 ports.

There will never be a "right" tune to but the wiiu. Just let it stay dead.
