    with the $50 price drop coming for the Wii U, do you guys think nintendo will pull the same plan as the 3ds? for those of us who already have a wii u, a $50 drop AND the wind waker HD, i would really like to see a credit or maybe a download for the wind waker HD since it will be provided for new systems practically for free.

    So you think they put all those years in the development of Wind Waker HD so they can give it away for free to everyone?

    well they handed out games to 3ds owners that they still haven't released today. the wind waker HD was to help players not freak out about the next installment of zelda for taking so long to be developed.

    Besides, they're desperate at this point to keep the system from failing

    Same here, but I'm not gonna hold my breath since Nintendo isn't exactly known for being that charitable for early adopters.

    Not really for free. It looks like to me they are including it instead of Nintendo Land. I could still see Nintendo doing something like the ambassador program because of the $50 price drop, but not likely.

    I would like to see it, maybe if we complain enough since we were the ones supporting them when no one else was.

    Sorry. Nintendo already stated that there is not going to be any kind of ambassador program for the Wii U.

    They're doing the Wind Waker bundle thing because they need more people to buy consoles. For those who already have a console, they don't care about you anymore. They'll pocket their extra 50 bucks and hope you're nice enough to go buy yourself a copy of Wind Waker at full price knowing that you're not gonna get it any other way.

    Since you will gladly wait for a hack, how would you be one that was supporting them in the first place.

    Sometimes I think you say stupid stuff like that just to see who will argue with you.
    Hopefully you will wait for the hack and be miserable all about it till it happens. In the mean time I will continue to enjoy my console and the games that come to it.
    I won't reply to any reply of this message. Not worth any extra time.

    I bought the system when they said sales were down because I care about my gaming companies.
    If I wanted to argue I would argue, but that's how I feel if they want to treat the ones who bought early like shit.
    especially dealing with that slow ass load time for months and sitting with a Wii U that had no games for months.
    So yeah, I will wait if they act like we don't matter. I'd rather download wind waker HD if they don't at least acknowledge the fact that for a year people were paying more for the system when it had no games.

    It has lots of games. I haven't finished a single game since launch and I got a bunch of them.

    well thats just your damn problem isn't it?
    if you already beat all the games well play them in hard mode or 100% runs or speedruns. thats what i do when there's nothing to play on any console and im sure that almost anyone else does that too not just complain about stuff or wait for a hack

    I bought my 3DS when it was $250 then months later a price drop caused the system to take flight I think it will be bit similar with the Wii U just not to the extent of the 3DS. In my opinion the Wii U is an amazing system with a lack of games. I have beaten the 5 games that I own for my Wii U and I look forward to Splinter Cell & Pikmin 3 next week when I pick them up. I don't see how anyone can hate on the Wii U but people complain about everything these days and can't be satisfied with anything. The Wii U and the ugly 2DS will do just fine, it will just take time.

    Not me. If I beat a game once, I don't go back to it. Except for The Last Of Us. But that's because that game is nothing short of astounding.

    Not even Chrono Trigger? You never went back to even try one of the 13 different endings that were available? *gasp* My heart... *breathe*

    for me it depends on the games, most newer games don't have much replay value, but i can still go back to old SNES or NES games and play through them in a day or two. specifically ALTTP or SMRPG. I think super paper mario has the most plays from me in the last few years. or animal crossing and OOT3d. lately all I play is black ops 2, and that's when I have the chance and because it's easy access on the gamepad.

    Did you 100% NSMBU and NSLU? every coin? 5 profile stars? Are you skilled enough to complete all the challenges too, because those are insane.
