    Yeah that's right, someone said that only 10 to 15 people on this forum owns a Wii U console.
    I'd like to know if he's right, so I created a poll.

    I bought one a few weeks after launch. I bought the new 2d super mario u, new sonic and zelda ww hd. i was very sad that sonic was such a bad and cluttered game.
    I'll get new Donkey Kong and Super Mario 3D World once I have money. Looking forwards to X.

    I gave my old wii to my big brother cuz it's dvd drive stopped working and i've still got the gamecube. also the wii u plays wii games, so my old wii games can still be played if and when I'd like to.

    I do own one, but only because to simplify my home theater wiring. I use to to play Wii game 99% of the time. While there are few Wii U titles out there I'd like to play, I already have tons of game on my backlog for Wii and PS3. I may start to pick up some Wii U games when their price starts to go down.

    I bought one when they first came out. Not that I would (normally) recommend doing that for any console, but I collect them, so (even if there are very few games on a console) it's never useless to me.

    Yes.
    Yes i do.

    And while i don´t play that much on it, the games i bought i´ve played like crazy.

    Zelda: Wind Waker HD
    Super Mario 3D
    Lego Universe
    New Super Mario Bros WiiU

    Well, i didn´t play Assassin´s Creed 3 that much... Mostly because the game is horrible.

    And i will buy Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8(?) Super Smash Bros U this year, and ofcourse Watch Dogs.

    I bought a Wii U last year. First I didn't play with it that often. LEGO City Undercover, NSMBU, NSLU and SM3DW all only lasted a few days.

    But about two weeks ago I decided to softmod the vWii, get a few emulators and Devolution on it and buy a MaxPlay to put the console into my car when going on longer trips. Since then I play with it more often than with every other console or handheld I own. :D

    Maybe because I can now play most of my favourite NES, SNES, N64 and Gamecube titles on it. But hey. It's quite a nice emulator machine. That might kill the time until more great Wii U games will be released.

    Nope, but a few friends have a WiiU. Enough for me, since the console lacks an interesting library for me. I would consider getting one to rid myself of my Wii and switching to HDMI for the Wii games too. Otherwise, I'll just do like I did with the Wii: get one for a small amount of money new on a sale after there are enough games for me to consider getting one myself.

    Otherwise I'll keep on the PS3/PS4/PSVita because of PS+ and potential for games I'm interested in. Also only one of my friends has a PS4 at the moment.

    Voted no.
    Unless they release a GOOD Metroid game or a GOOD Zelda game I'm not even touching that console.

    Yup, got a slightly used Deluxe model complete with Nintendoland and a bonus wiimote with motion control built in, Gamepad had no scratches or marks, all for $200 at a local pawn shop. Was far too good a deal to pass up.

    In addition to Nintendo Land, I have: Wind Waker HD, ZombiU, Super Mario 3D World, Sonic Lost World, and NES Remix.

    For what I've paid for the console, I am very very happy with the console. This year looks very promising in terms of games coming out too. So if you're wondering if I regret my purchase, Hell no. This console doesn't get the love and attention it deserves, but hey, I'll let those that haven't put in more than 10 minutes or more into the thing live in their ignorant world if thats what they wish to do.
