Is Now the Right Time to Buy a Wii U?

GotGame: As the old saying goes, “there’s no time like the present”, and that may certainly be the case for the struggling Nintendo Wii U, as Nintendo has quite a few AAA titles on the way for the system, as well as an impending price cut.

Not yet for me, I'm still waiting for SSMB and a new Zelda. I probably would have bought it for it's old price if these games were released already ...but I don't mind paying less now ;D

Nintendo will never get a sale from me as long as I live. After what mess they did with the Wii I'm done with Nintendo.

i bought one for the potential of playing the games you listed but in the mean time i do enjoy some really good wii games on it.

It really does make a difference visually on the regular wii games. Tatsunoko vs capcom....sooooo much better when played through a wii-u.

theres a lot of games worth playing on it now. super luigi DLC is one of the best side scrollers in years.

Yes I'm sure it is. But I've bought a Vita recently and got a huge backlog on my PS3 already so I have everything but time to enjoy all those games :/
But I'm definately getting a WiiU sooner or later, Nintendo games are still something special.

Personally, I'd be hard-pressed to find a right time to buy a WiiU

wiiU is much fun without games . . with an internet connection that is

Really? Without hardly any apps I find that hard to believe. ;)

Edit: Of course I own one why I be so vocal about it. I'll give you TVii but you must be grasping at straws if you mention Google street view. Other than that it has like what 5 other apps? Which btw could be done on a smartphone, tablet or on another console. ;)

What are you talking about? Tvii alone is a great app...Google street is freaking amazing and at first I thought it was going to be stupid. Youtube is better on U than PC. There is more then enough to do without even popping a game in. You are always on Wii U threads...You do own one don't you?

BullyMangler1901d ago

smart phone, tablet, diff experience rather a wiiU gamepad duh no equal value horrible comparison.

even though the youtube app sucks for wiiU, is still awesome using youtube browser on the gaming pad oh yea . and things will only get better ha haa

It's the right time to get the Wind Waker bundle, since it is for a limited time.

I agree with this article I think the holiday season will be a great time to get a wii u, all of the updates for the system, have been added, more apps like the artist maker, and more great indie games and virtual console is finally into full swing, and the great games like mario 3d coming out this fall? yes I agree, at 299.99 you get the system and a game, so zelda will probably be the system of choice, over nintendo land bundle, but I see this as a big turning point for nintendo, and a great year for great games, for us nintendo fans!!
