Wii U has the strongest lineup ironically.

@kingthrash...honest question here...is there such a person as a "trusted leaker"?

I agree the wiiu has the best line up for me. I have an Xbox one on pre order as I want Forza 5 and ki more than any other game for the pa4 at the moment but I have had pikmin 3 wonderful101, windwaker HD, sonic lost worlds already for my wiiu and I have Mario world 3d, dk, Mario kart and super smash bros on pre order still and also got Pokemon x for the 3ds so the next few months is going to be a busy gaming time when I get chance.

KThrash, there was never any doubt that you would say nothing good about X1. PS4 and X1 will put up good numbers for launch, then expect a drought. You may think if shortages, people would go WiiU, but I think PS3 and 360 will benefit the most from PS4, X1 shortages. WiiU has missed the boat entirely I think, too little too late.

KT, Unless I am dyslexic, you have bashed on X1 every time I have seen a comment from you. Based on pre order numbers, I expect PS4 and X1 to crush WiiU anyway. I am not putting you in anyones war, I care less, always speak my opinion, as a gamer of all (almost) systems, no WiiU for me. I like your first sentence in response too, Facts about the rumours... Priceless....

what did i say bad? all i said were facts about the rumors...i never said they were true but they are indeed there. please READ my last sentence ...."i hope it isnt true for thos gamers who buy a x1 day1." smh how can u say i never say something good. i've never ever said xbone or m$ or other sh!t. i could care less about the war but i stand by my opinion. ms is killin x1 with their silence and just the way they've handled the console's reveal and the things they done... just stop with trying to put me in your "war".

Take in to consideration we are referring to people buying a new console. I am 1000000% right.

Well, with all these new Wii U bundles, despite people thinking it's stupid or it'll 'fail because Nintendo', I think Wii U will take the cake. They have the best deal and I'm pretty sure that's what parent's are looking for.

A Wii U bundle with 2 games, NSMBU and Luigi U for $300, vs Ps4 or the One which are both $400+ either way...
I think we can see the better deal here.

I honestly don't really care though, I'll be sticking with my Wii U + 3DS and just want my games coming this holiday.

Just got back from GAME UK Retailer PS4 event and knack was awesome, played it on normal and it was hard, no one could finish the demo on hard setting, contrast was excellent played a theatre musical section and a horse carousal fun fair section with horse shadows bobbing up and down, very cool. No freezes, no slow downs just great gameplay and graphics. If knack looks that good can't wait for gadget show this friday to play kz4, driveclub and bf4 ( plus other titles)

How can i get a disagree giving my own personal experience lol
Reeze  +   255d ago
I've never owned a Sony console, but Knack actually does look pretty interesting. I've seen trailers and I'm still not quite sure how it all works, but I think it looks neat.

not long left to see i all unfold! :D

Wii U could have killed this Holiday with SSB, and Mario Kart. Now Sony may take more gaming dollars I think. It also does not help DK Freeze was pushed back. Those are all hard hitters.

If I buy a new console this holiday season, it will probably be the PS Vita. If I get a new home console later on, it will probably be the PS4, but I'm not too excited about paying to play online.
