I'm gonna wait and see on this one. I bought a Wii day one and it really only gets used as a Netflix machine, or when we have a lot of family or friends over.

I bought a Wii for my mother for Xmas because she wanted to play Wii-Fit. Now she only turns it on to watch Netflix. smh

Yeh Ive always been the kind of hardcore gamer that buys every console available right when they come out but after having the wii and it collecting more dust than a 90yr old prostitute, Im taking a wait and see approach.

Many won't jump on the Wii-U at launch until Nintendo proves themselves....

My Wii has been on the shelf for at least a year, now. Nintendo is gonna have to do some serious work on getting a new console into my house day one.

Hard to predict the market's purchasing habits when product specific details are still unknown to the public. This poll should be re-administered after E3 2012; the data comparison would at least give us an idea of the market's reaction to Nintendo revealing the finalized pricing, release date and first and third party software.

For now, all the poll does is gauge the reaction to a subjective belief (in the respondents) about a non-released product(since few finalized details are known to the public)

Unless Nintendo show me a wealth of hardcore exclusives like they had in the olden days then I'm not interested.
