    First i would like to say that i dont care about the money difference. And that i would pay without trouble for the consoles.

    I want to know which one has the most fun games, good graphics and features.
    I know there is a lot of hate for wii u but please mention all of it's features i want to know, because i know all the hate is just false hate.

    I am not really into shooters, so if there is something else i can play. I like mario style games though.
    Which one should i get?

    Well considering there is a few Mario style like games on the WiiU, I'd say go with it.
    Seriously though, I'd buy a Wiiu for Nintendo games then choose between Xbox and Ps4 for everything else.

    Oh ok, i see your point makes sense. Since i guess the ps4 and xbox1 are mostly for shooter games and racing games. Although i would like to get KH3 and FF15. Are those games a system seller?

    +1 for Nintendo.

    BTW, you are asking this on a Nintendo based (i.e. GBA) forum...

    cool thanks, i will be getting the wii u. Also it is becaue the ps4 and xbox1 forum are full of haters for wii u, also there arent many people there. I guess i should have gone with wii u at the start. I dont like all this swearing in online play or the dark and bland games. Anyone notice that ps4 and xbox1 games are made for online play and not the main story game. So if you do not have internet you are pretty much screwed.

    If you like games like Zelda/Mario/Yoshi/DK... Nintendo is the only choice...

    Let's up to you though. I can tell you don't hold breath for KH to be on Wii U.

    Anyway, better buy this holiday season would be PS3 though.

    I don't really understand the recommendation. As of today, the Wii U is a dead system and judging by the announced upcoming games, it's going to stay dead for a while. Get the Wii U only if you're specifically interested in Nintendo titles - both the PS4 and the XBox One beat the Wii U in just about every technical aspect and will see much more developer support. If Mario is your thing, great, get it, but as of today, those are just about all the games you're getting for the Wii U, and few and far between at that.

    I'll get a wii u on boxing day, but KH came to the 3ds so maybe they can bring one to the wii u aswell. Since i am sure that KH has been on every game console for the past few generations. Such as: GBA,DS,PSP,3DS,PS3, and xbox 360. Although it did not come out on the wii, i hope it comes on the wii u. FF will definitely not come, so i wont get my hopes up

    I don't care about the technical aspect. As long as i can play my games in good enough HD i am ok. I do not need voice chatting, split screen or whatever. I just want to play games. Well i know that the wii u will definitely come back with sales, trust me. Just like the 3ds did. Please do not start a hate argument. Anyway, can you recommend me some games on the ps4 or xbox1 that do not involve guns or shooting?

    PS; I do not care about the sales, as long as it has a good game line up next year like nintendo then it is good. I do not buy a console because other people are buying it. I buy to play games.

    Doubtful. KH makes it to X1 because it is in many ways similar to PS4, making it very easy to port games.

    On the other hand Wii U is completely different to X1 and PS4. Porting the game to Wii U would require some major work. Given how stagnant Wii U market is, very doubtful to see KH on Wii U.

    Honestly right now buying seventh gen makes more sense than eighth gen.

    Sounds like the Wii U is the right console for you.

    really depends upon taste but there are over 20 or so titles well worth any ones time. As Foxi says though going forward expect some dry patches though

    Depending on whether you have owned them before or not and based on the fact you like nintendo stuff, for the price of a Wii U you could go out and buy yourself a 3DS which caters for a loads of Nintendo goodness, way more than the Wii U currently does, and an original Wii, which hosts a couple of amazing marios, zeldas, DKs, metroids the lot and allows you access to the Gamecube catalogue too if you pick up the right wii. You might not be as impressed with the eye candy of the wii, but trust me, you'll have a shit load more fun with the Wii and 3DS

    Ignore Foxi . WiiU isnt Dead , its just in a mild coma . Needless to say the game tally on release for PS4 and XBoner arent much to right home about .. I bought my son a WiiU last xmas and its been brilliant fun , i have bought him a PS3 this xmas for all those dumb ass shooters . I reckon the ps3 and 360 got a good year left in them before we really see what these newer consoles can punch .

    At this point in Nintendo's lifespan, a person should only ever be buying a Nintendo console if they like Nintendo's first-party offerings. I do, and I am happy with my Wii U.

    That said, because a Nintendo console is just that (a console solely for Nintendo games), I do have a PS4 also to deal with my more mainstream gaming.

    So you're asking me to tell you which system you should pick and specify that you want to play games with decent graphics and features. I interpret that as middle of the road, and the Wii U is not "middle of the road", it's the weakest out of the three and it will stay behind just like the Wii has a generation before - it will not see a whole lot of multiplatform titles and when it will, they will be watered down. Expect that.

    As far as games for the two competitors are concerned, the systems literally launched last month - there's only so much they have to offer at this point. Right now, there's Knack on the PS4, but you should probably focus on the future prospects. 2014 is right around the corner and with it Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV, Mighty No.9 etc.

    As it stands today though, fair enough, the Wii U has more games that'd fit your preferences. As of today. Don't forget that you're not buying a system to play on for a week but for a couple of years and so far, Wii U isn't exactly getting stellar support.
    This is a very sound strategy that I support - getting the Wii U for Nintendo games that we all know and love and another nextgen system for all the rest seems like a great solution.

    I know that. That is why i am looking forward to mario kart 8, super smash bros 4, bayonetta 2, scribblenauts and lots more. The wii u probably has the best line up for 2014. Also i do not know why everyone keeps ranting on about these third party games. It's not like anyone buys them anyways. I just see the in shops collecting dust. I think i need to get into all the nintendo exclusives so i can get the most out of it. Thanks for helping me choose a wii u everyone. :D
