Why The Wii U is The Best Console This Holiday Season

The argument that the Wii U has no games is no longer valid. There was a time when the Wii U just wasn’t compelling enough for gamers due to their lack of must have titles. This holiday season however, the big N has turned things around in a major way and the Wii U’s library is steadily growing with a number of must have titles for the system. With these newly released games along with a promising 2014, the Nintendo Wii U may be your best bet for this holiday season.

Yes keep telling yourself that and you might believe it.

Reeze1599d ago

Maybe you should read the article before commenting.

It says "this holiday season" even in the title. Yes, the PS4 and Xbox One are great systems, but this year, because they just launched, they do not have many games. That's the real selling point on a console, and the Wii U's got the games.

You buy a console for its lifespan, not just its first year or couple of weeks.

rextraordinaire1599d ago

Even then, a 3DS or 2DS would be a much better idea than a Wii U...

Pogmathoin1599d ago

I want one, but do not want it ending up like the Wii.... A dust collector...

Name some of these games please i would love to know.

If you are gonna make that argument then PS3 is the best system. Just get a PS4. It's tha cheapest investment. Stop being concerned about now. Because you might spend $300 on a PS3 or WiiU but those won't be supported in 2 years from now.

@All above

Yes, you buy the console for its lifespan, but most people will wait until a console gets games to buy along with the console- especially if they're bundled at a lower price.

The Wii U is a fantastic console. If you don't want to believe that, fine. But it has a ton of fun games. I've really enjoyed playing games with it and can't wait to play the new Mario on it.

If you haven't tried the Wii U yet, give it a shot before you bash it. You might be shocked at how good the console is.

husomc1599d ago

i don't know about the general populace but i don't buy a substitute game console to compensate for lack of games on my console of choice. imo buying a game console is an investment for the future !

Ilovetheps41599d ago

husomc, it isn't just a substitute game console. I've had so much fun with the console. I can't wait for a new Zelda game and Super Smash on it. I have put about 150 hours into Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Few games have gotten me to put that many hours into them. Lego City is a great game and Wonderful 101 is a fun game. It is, in my opinion, underrated. Like I said, don't judge the console without trying it out for yourself. You'll be surprised at what you find.

husomc1599d ago

@ilovetheps4: it becomes a substitute if what i really want is the ps4 but have to get a wiiU just because it's got more games. (butter and margarine analogy comes to mind )

Ilovetheps41599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

husomc, I'm not saying buy it in place of the PS4. Honestly, I bought both because I like what they both offer. I didn't buy the Wii U to replace the PS4 in any way. They both serve their purpose, and they both are pretty fun for me.

Freak, if they drop the gamepad, I don't see the appeal of the system anymore. The gamepad is awesome. There just wouldn't be anything setting it apart from the pack. And also, you are abandoning your initial customers. Most people (myself included) bought the console because of the gamepad. Are they really willing to give their hardcore fans, the only people really supporting them right now the middle finger?

Th4Freak1599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

I kinda agree but when you look at the price it stop being fantastic and definitely stop being appealing.

If Nintendo drop the gamepad and cut the price it would sell like hot cakes.

I have a Wii U and I currently would not recommend it over another system. It has been out a year and barely has anything on it. You buy consoles for the games that is true but you also buy them for their future prospects. Maybe if they announce Zelda or Metroid will release in 2014. But then I would probably still say wait until x game comes out. Mario 3d world is great and all, but I really don't care for it as much as Galaxy or Galaxy 2.

dumb comment.. wii u is the best console this holiday by far.. what games on both xbone and ps4 match the games on wii u like.. mario u, luigi u, monster hunter, pikmin 3, zombie u, wind waker hd, mario 3d world, wonderful 101. Im not even going into the virtual console which has tons of games for wii and wii u. earthbound says hello. And its also 200$ less then the bone and 100 less then the POS4. did i mention the free online, or full backwards campatible thing? or being able to choose the controler you use? wii mote and chuk, pro controler, classic controler, or gamepad. what about the internet browser on wii u? did you know it wipes the floor with these super consoles? or how about it loads up quicker... not to bad for a weak underpowered console eh? I start my wii u up in 11 seconds... can a ps4 do it or an xboxone? nope sorry guys. if you dont believe me check my youtube @ HardcoreDaBoss the video is wii u vs xbox360 and shows facts and proof of startups and speed.. not fanboy junk that N4G shows everyday

edit::: wii u also includes games in the bundles at 299 USD.. Im not a fanboy Im just stating the facts.. wii u has been slaughtered by BS for a year.. andnow ps4 is super hyped and so is xbone.. get real and stop believing the hype crap..

QuebecSuperstar1599d ago

How about that: to each their own.

Its the best system because it has been out longer and has some games - in the long run, its not a good investment at the moment :( it makes me sad to say this because i do want to get a wiiu its just im strapped for cash and i cant see myself buying one for a little while.

Majin-vegeta1599d ago

No thanks the F2P games are more than enough for me to get my gaiming on plus i still got PS+ games along with retail so i'm set.

Baka-akaB1599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

Doubt that . It's not even about the obviously just in infancy ps4/xb1 ... i just dont see it even beating the goods and juice the ps3/360 still got . But then again , i'm not the target for pure mario games nor a big zelda fan . I've mostly only enjoyed the spin offs such as Kart , tennis , smash bros etc . And there is no jrpg yet for me ... still waiting on X

Allowen1599d ago

Where are the rpg games for the wiiu? ?

The Xbone and the PS4 will be getting early in 2014 The Witcher 3 and Dragon Age 3.
And maybe more games might inc from Japan.

But what about the wiiu on that matter?
There still no words about when we will see games such Fire Emblem, New Zelda or that beautiful FF clone will arive.

The 10th Rider1599d ago (Edited 1599d ago )

Actually, Dragon Age: Inquisition doesn't hit until Q3 2014 and The Witcher 3 is TBD 2014. Monster Hunter is out on Wii U, another Monster Hunter will is coming soon, the best version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is on the Wii U, X should be dropping sometime next year, and Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem should hit sometime over the next year and a half.

Honestly,all the consoles are offering some great games for RPG fans.

R00bot1599d ago

X. It looks incredible.
