    Hi there,

    I don't know if its the right section to post this, but, I want to ask whether I should buy Wii U now or wait for NX?

    I really want to play Super Mario Maker, so I am thinking of buying Wii U and the game, but, could it be possible that it will also come out for NX?

    I already own a 3ds, so, should I go with Wii U or wait for NX to be released?

    What do ya guys think? :)

    You can wait until E3 for info about the NX. If is backward compatible with Wii U you could play the game anyway and if isn't then you will get a better price for a Wii U.
    win/win situation there.

    Nothing is clear at the moment, Nintendo just said in twitter that they are gonna launch the next Legend of Zelda for Wii U and NX march 2017 and that the E3 will be focused mainly on Zelda, so we can assume that they will announce the NX too.

    E3 is on June 14-16, a month and a half away.
    If that Wii isn't the mini model (Wii mini is unhackable) I would say go for it, even better if is the older model with gamecube ports. a hacked Wii can get you an almost endless supply of games and tons of fun.

    Nintendo said that they won't show the NX at e3. Only Zelda.

    What games do you want to play / When do you plan on getting a Wii U / What do you want to use it for.

    second hand wiiu... if possible 5.3.2 fw.

    there are many chances that NX will be not retrocompatible with wiiu games.

    1) They will most likely port Super Mario Maker to the NX
    2) Kernel exploit might be coming out this weekend. So if it doesn't then wait for the NX

    Then get the Wii U. Who knows how long until the NX is hacked.

    I guess your right, but, as of now, we can't play roms online on Wii U right?

    Obviously don't buy a Wii U now. It's overpriced and clearly not worth it considering the NX will be out before you know it but fanbos will say "who cares about how much it costs? what matters is that it's fun". Dumb logic. For the price that it's going now you're probably just going to have to pay a bit more and get an NX for that cost.
