So I was kind of interested in talking about this. Ever since the Wii U was released people were saying it was a good console. But after 2016 it got extremely boring, and not a lot of people play on it anymore. Pretty much the same thing a lot of people liked the Wii in 2006, then it got boring in 2012 same deal really. I was curious to know others opinions as I am interested in buying a Wii U once the NX releases. Hopeing it becomes cheaper, and that they might discontinue their online services. Here are mine so far: Wii U: May be hard to modify the console, as there may be issues conflicting with the main "I Pad Controler". Game content is not very unique (Except a few Link, and Mario Games. Spaltoon is also nice.) Hardware contains a lot of memory (32 GB if I remember, or having the optional 4 GB.) You have to wait on loading screens a long time to connect to an online game, or service... I believe maximum wait time is five minutes Links with the old Wii that way you can transfer your games to the Wii U. Contains simple "mini games" written on the Wii U that you can play with your friends. It is possible to play with a Wii Controler, as long as it has the Wii U brand on it. Graphics have been slightly improved in resolution terms, and shaders. Games are a little pricy. ($20 USD - $50 USD minimum for single party games.) Content has been improved for multiplayer online (This means that you can link a Nintendo ID Account to your 3DS, Wii U, and Mobile Device. So you have your data saved globally on the 3DS, and Wii U. Socializing online has also been an improved feature Wii U supports 3rd Party Games but graphics are either horrible, or FPS is serverley slown down. Compared to the Wii; Online services discontinued, Very easy to hack. In fact one of the easiest consoles you can hack into. You have the freedom of adding new features to the Wii with modifications to make it your own "Wii". There are no punishments of modding the Wii as long as your smart, and know what to do if something goes wrong. Games are great. Graphics are okay considering they were updated, but they were the best at the time. Games range from $19.99 - $29.99 for single party games. Contains no third party support. Great, and simple to use. Contains a lot of eyestrain (You may notice this on the Wii Menu, or in certain games.) this can easily be fixed by changing your Wii Theme Menu, and game menus to black, making the screen darker, or by altaring the colors. If your not into that it's best you take frequent breaks from the Wii. Hardware is not as great (Only has a few MB avilable, which is not a problem since the saved games are very small files.) Space avilable on the Wii will almost not matter as long as you online use game discs, and do not download games from the Shop. The Wii Shop channel is still supported (May be unsupported in the future.) You can play Gamecube games. Just curious. What do you guys think is the best?
