    How has Nintendo convinced everyone here about the new system will u buy one? did the games impress you, and what about their conference. Me personally i kinda like the zombie game, and pikmin 3 game, but everything else makes me wonder if i should just wait too see what happens. So far things aren't looking good as games are concerned, and for their e3 conference i give it a u.

    I'm not getting a WiiU at launch.

    There aren't enough games that I'd like to play.
    I also kind of regret buying a 3DS at launch (although they did made up for it)

    ZombiU and Pikmin 3 seems nice but I'd rather wait it out and wait until theres some more software available for it.

    Knowing me I would probably end up buying it at launch anyway xd
    I'm horrible at those things ;_;

    I will definitely take the risk and buy the Wii U at launch.

    ZombiU and Pikmin 3 looks like it's a fun game. The games that I want to try for the Wii U is NBA 2K13, Ninja Gaiden 3, Tekken, Assassin's Creed III, Zelda HD and Lego City Undercover.

    The Wii U is sexy but I'll not get it at launch.
    3 simple reasons:

    1. I got my hands badly burnt with the 3DS

    2. The Wii U is definitely around $450 - $550 (~ slightly less than US$400) in Singapore

    3. I learnt my lesson with Nintendo never to buy their consoles at launch (partly related with 1)

    It looks promising and all, but the earliest time I'll get a Wii U is after the launch window.
    Besides, if I get a JP 3DS, I might not get the Wii U at all because of regional issues (the Wii U is very likely region locked).

    I will get it when it gets at least 2 games I want.
    These include Scribblenauts Unlimited, Mario Kart 8, Assassin's Creed III, Zelda, Super Mario.
    I will wait for it to go cheap.

    And the thing that everyone needs to learn is that you NEVER buy a console at launch.
    Just look at the old models and prices of the 360, PS3 and 3DS, they sucked!

    I'll pick it up at launch.

    So I have the original system menu and hardware for when homebrew happens. Not to play games on it.

    ZombiU and Pikmin 3 are the only games that are making me want it for launch and AC3 i guess

    Not getting it on launch, in fact, I think I'll take my time with this one and wait until it's affordable.

    The launch titles are absolutely pathetic - other than Scribblenauts Unlimited, Rayman Legends and ZombiU the console lacks exclusive titles that could draw me to it. Most of the titles that do interest me are either really belated ports or multiplatform games, so unless the console proves to be a really damn good media hub, it doesn't offer enough for me to break out my wallet.

    In the meantime I'll carry on eyeballing the 3DS and the Vita.

    Pikmin 3 is in the launch window; it's not a launch title as far as we currently know.

    I'll get it as soon as Rayman origins is available...and a black model (but that's probably straight at launch anyway).

    The early wii, on the other hand, still has the best hacking capabilities. And I'm not so impressed with the latest design either (no gamecube support).


    While I know the chances of the wiiU being easily hackable are unknown (and very probably unlikely), it's not really a fair comparison. Of course the price will go down after some time. But by that logic, why bother going to the movies if you can just wait for the Blueray disc? Or why buy a computer if it'll be outperformed in a couple years?

    I'll either get one at launch or wait until Christmas so I don't have to pay for the whole thing by myself :P

    sofar the software seems interresting, and if what nintendo says about having social media, youtube, ect is true then ill probably enjoy the console. i know for sure im getting one. i already started saving up :D i think im most excited about the miiverse so far. it'll be fun to be able to friend new pals to whipe the floor with, without having to leave the home screen.

    I will buy it, but not at launch. Im sure it will be a success, but I can't fork out £250+ for one. Will wait for deals/bundles.

    I regretted for Wii at Launch thanks to no 3rd party so I m not going to buy it until I see many 3rd party have many good games for it. Money wise and be safe. I dont own 3DS too but there are few good games and I wont buy it until there are enough and 3DS lite too. :)

    The Wii U is likely region locked.

    If it is and I get a Japanese 3DS console, then I won't be getting a Wii U anymore.

    It depends on the price if I get it at launch. If it's 300€ then I'll get it together with NSMBU and ZombiU.

    No worthy games as of yet. Around the time a Metroid or Zelda is released, I'll buy one, until then, no thanx.
    Sure ZombiU and Pikmin 3 looks interesting but I could probably skip them.

    True but I mean I am into 3rd party mostly. First party was fine thanks to Zelda and Mario galaxy series which I enjoyed as well. :)
