    It's totally worth getting, I love my WiiU.
    Totally beats my other consoles.

    In all seriousness, check the game list. Is it really that freakin' hard to form an opinion? People can't be THIS lazy.

    Do you mind if I necrobump this thread in two or three months to let you know if it has any staying power?


    If not, I can do a really cute nintendo fanboi impression. :P

    Spend the money on a real console. Spend it on a Neo Geo Pocket Colour.

    Bonuses? Wii u probably have deals in some places.

    Knowing Nintendo track record, Wii u will at least be stable / long lasting.

    :P

    Cod got u for multiplayer and it had duel screen play.

    No. You can play without the TV. I didn't think there are any games that is a exception to that feature either.

    If you can do this with all games, I may get one and not even hook it up to my TV. That would be amazing.

    The game-pad will be able to presumably be able to let you connect with the Wii U up to a certain distance (Hopefully within the bounds of a home, unless you live in a mansion). I'm hoping it can work up to 30-50 feet from the console. Then I can sit in my bed if my console is in another room. Hopefully the controller will be able to turn off the console without me having it check to make sure it does. I'm always too cautious with that and will probably check each time anyway..

    I think it is 25 feet at best,but it can go farther.
    I'm sure very few games at least would be TV only,but I may be wrong.
    Even though I couldn't get it, I think black would be worth it, if you can get it.

    You might want to do bit more info on the games on the controller thing.

    Welcome. ^_^

    I would think there would be some games that would require the second screen if the second screen plays some essential role that wouldn't leave space for what you'd see on the main screen. It would be NICE if developer's would even then add a 1-screen mode where you could toggle between the two needed screens much the way traditional games had to do when there was only one screen available but some developers will be lazy.

    Another point is games like ZombiU where you use the gamepad to bludgeon your enemies. It's really hard to see the screen when you're swinging it, like closing your eyes every time you swing an axe at a zombie. Even that, though, could just add to the suspense kinda like hitting something with a flashlight in Doom 3 where you can't see anything while you swing.

    Is there anywhere still taking preorders? I wanted to preorder the black wii u and all the places I checked were out of preorder stock.
