couldn't agree more with this, and there is more coming next year lol. 2014 is gonna be great for wii u owners ;)

Yup, Nintendo is really getting it done. They will own 2014 for sure.

Honestly, the Wii U is the best console to buy in 2014 if you already have a PS3 or 360. Personally I've bought a PS4 as well but it's just collecting dust until Infamous Second Son comes out.

The Wii U maybe struggling with third parties for a variety of reasons, but it's fits first party lineup is second to none, and 2014 is going to be a great year for content you can only find on the Wii U.

As for the PS4 and Xbox One, I highly doubt there will be too many people that will buy both consoles since they are very similar and require subscription service to play online. I see the Xbox One losing out this generation because of it's price point and shared exclusives among the 360 and PC.

Absolutely, it's THE console to get while the other consoles go through their first year dry spells. It's got a good library. It's still more powerful than last gen. Still let's you play all your wii stuff.

All that and less than the competitors.

Of you like Nintendo-styled games in general, then yes, it's very worth it. It already has a lot of good games in that style available now.

Otherwise, you're better off with your 360 or PS3, and waiting a bit until the PS4 and One build up on their game libraries.

Wiiu and PS4 for me this Generation. Wiiu already has more JRPG's that I want to play than xbox 360 has.

Read's like an advertisement. I wonder how much Nintendo put in the Daily Star's stocking?

There is nothing in the article to back up the title. I thought Wii U saw some significant sales spike in the UK. UK is Wii U's weakest market and the author is trying to convince us that it is bouncing back. Looks like a desperate attempt at positive PR. Instead of doom and gloom like everyone else they decided to do a puppies and sunshine article.

The Daily Star is the UK's edition of The National Enquirer. With boobs.

ha it's like if Nuts decided to get a foreign correspondent just for the lulz. That is the Daily Star.

I'm not sure how anyone can disagree! They have stories about people turning into fish fingers & alien abductions.
