Now's a nice time to buy a Wii U: Here's everything you should know

Console break down and the best games, present and upcoming. (3DS, Nintendo DS, Wii U)

The Wii U is currently the best system on the market and it has the best library of games. BC is also a huge plus.
Magicite  +   492d ago
Currently and always best system is PC.
From consoles best is PS3, most variable library and support for at least 2 more years, and most importantly - huge amount of JRPGs (not as much as previous Playstation consoles though).
WiiU with lack of 3rd parties and RPG/strategy genres is a moderate choice now. And You can emulate Wii games on PC with HD-like visuals.

Everyone on N4G knows you're all about the RPGs, dude. Not everyone is in the same boat.

I'm glad Nintendo is taking online gaming more seriously with titles like Splatoon.
Multiplatguy  +   492d ago
Didn't they say it doesn't allow voice chat though? Not taking it seriously enough if that is true.
Concertoine  +   492d ago
One of the designers on the show floor said it would include it, Nintendo rep said it wouldnt.

I'm pretty sure it will, it's a competitive shooter so it needs communication.
ZoidsRaven  +   492d ago
What Concertoine said.
Even if they don't have voice chat, they are still taking it more seriously then they have for god knows how many years.
Chrono  +   492d ago
Lol at no voice chat. Now that's a serious take on online from nintendo.

After watching E3 this year, I purchased a Wii U :)

Very good decision!!

from what Nintendo has shown at E3..and with the price, theres no reason why you dont want to own one.

I'm getting a WiiU late this year. Nintendo has come a long way from the regular Wii which was such a shitty console with weird controller.
Geekman  +   492d ago
Eh, it had it's moments. Some of Nintendos best first party titles were on there. But I'd have preferred an traditional controller.

I think Nintendo has the right idea when it comes to their hardware. And they obviously know how to make great games. Once they've built up a larger library of games to choose from, the Wii U will gathet more attention. But the biggest hurdle for Nintendo right now has to do with going after the people who want to play games as a source fun and entertainment versus playing through simulations. I'm sure VR will catch on soon as well, but when it does, Nintendo will be prepared for it if they haven't already. Who knows... Maybe they have a project thats been in the works that uses the streaming tech of the gamepad along with 3D capabilties and motion tracking all packed into an affordable VR headset.

I love the WiiU just bought me one I sold back my ps4 because sony forgot to make games for it Nintendo is the most trusted name when it comes to Gaming any ways

It is the only new gen console I own right now.. Thanks to backward compatibility, I can play metroid prime trilogy without owning another console.

Now is the time to buy games for a Wii U, with sales and promotions going on all summer long for Wii U and 3DS.

If you do buy one a refurbished one for $200 is a good deal, or you're better off waiting for the holiday and a possible price cut or bundle.
