    Nintendo's biggest shareholders are banking interests.
    It's time to satisfy the parasites.

    If I were there, there'd be an unsolicited question about whether or not the Wii U will get a long-overdue price cut. At this point I'd probably be escorted out of the building. It's probably a good thing I am not invited.

    Just wait for the Wii U Mini. I don't think they will remove WiFi this time…

    Or just grab one used after Switch releases. People will be letting them go for next to nothing.

    That I don't know. Many people may switch to the Switch, but the Switch is not backwards compatible. I plan to keep my Wii U because I have thousands of dollars in eShop titles, and I suspect many others will want to or have to hold onto their collections.

    One can hope. Access to the Wii U and everything downward (via hack/emulation) I can see the Wii U being a staple for nintendo emulation. At least, that's going to be my situation.

    Well I have a place nearby called Entertainmart that sells used consoles very cheap, especially after the next gen releases. Got a Wii for $30 a long time ago, after previously selling my own Wii for $120. If there are no local businesses around like that, pawn shops are usually a good bet. Can even haggle 'em down on the price a bit.
