Ign re-reviews the Wii U

IGN has taken to re-reviewing consoles to see how they stand up years after their launch. The publication has now decided to give the Wii U an 8/10 due to its excellent lineup of first party exclusives and lack of third-party support and under utilisation of the GamePad.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm glad IGN agrees that it's innovative and significant. The Wii U is a great console and totally underrated. An 8.0 is a little on the low side in my opinion, but it's within reason of where I'd rate it. I think, if you only own an XBOX One or PlayStation 4, you totally owe it to yourself to buy a Wii U to complement one of the other platforms.

the exclusives are worth the purchase alone. But there is a lot more to the Wii U than that.

I recently found out about the homebrew channel. While I don't like to play SNES/N64 emulators on my PC, playing them on the Wii U with a classic controller really feels like you are playing on the original system.

Of course I'm not supporting piracy. Most of the time I buy the games I already own a second time for the virtual console or from the PSN Store (PS1&PS2). There are just a lot of games that are not purchable, like Chrono Trigger or Terranigma.

Call me weird but I bought a 2DS to complement my PS4 and Vita. I'll get a Wii U once Zelda comes out though.

3ds has more games and is cheaper. Theres like 25 must play 3ds games, i'd say 15 at most for wii u.

8.5-9 imo.. Only a short while in & so many fantastic games for it.. Yes Nintendo sticks behind hardware wise but its perfectly fine if the games are great! I just hope theres more greatness to come from 3rd party & it doesnt end with bayo 2

It's the strongest console of the 3 software-wise imo at the moment. That could change but not until February at the very least.

Hmm I we gonna be doing this every year ign? Cuz if that's the case then all 3 consoles better get higher and higher scores every year.

It shouldn't annoy me the title of this isn't capitalized IGN but it really does.
