Welcome to NL @sjoerd! :D As whether you should buy a WiiU or not, I would wait and see how things pan out.

I'm definately getting a new video game system before the end of the year, I just can not decide whether that will be the Wii U, Xbox 360 or PS3. 360 has some awesome games in XBLA, PS3 has some great PSone Classics I'd love to download and the system also functions as a BluRay player, and of course the Wii U is shaping up quite nice. I'd definately love to play Aliens: Colonial Marines with the Gamepad and ZombiU looks great. It might sound corny, but this is a very difficult decision for me. I'm probably going to wait another month and see if we learn anything more about the Wii U, and also most of the really good sales go on between Oct - Dec.

I feel sorry for all the nazi's present here, I'm Dutch and I didn't know the english word for gefundeerd.. It's Google's fault really.
I'm currently the only one to have pre-ordered in this area, which was surprisingly easy. So I can get one if I want.
The Mario launching doesn't interest me at all. I don't want to insult anyone who thinks so, but I don't think NSMB is a real Nintendo franchise. I hate toads pounding me when I'm trying get over those damned pitfalls. Especially if it's your spoiled nephew controlling it. And when I finally get a chance to play it alone, it's way to easy.
Seeing as Trine II and Toki Tori will also be there at launch, I'll probably end up cycling home with that big WiiU box 30th of november.
I don't mind paying more for having it earlier, but I'm scared this 3rd party support won't last long leading to the console bleeding to death.

I can't help but remember the Dreamcast when I think of the Wii U, just a little too ahead of the curve. When the PS2 launched it blew the Dreamcast out of the water followed by every other system. I'd feel better about this system if I knew it actually had some life in it's tech but I feel like we're getting 5 year old technology. Maybe Nintendo know's something we don't, maybe we're getting to the point where graphics improvements are starting to flatline. Although after seeing the new Unreal 4 Engine preview and Square Enix's new engine I think we still have some great improvements coming.

Definitely valid points by the OP. Considering that Nintendo hasn't been extremely communitive with Nintendo Network or Miiverse, it'll be hard to tell whether online will be good or not. As for the third party stuff, I'm with @WhiteKnight on this one. Unless if it is a game that would only really work on WiiU (Zombii U, for example) I doubt we'll be seeing much third party stuff with the gamepad that is little more than a map viewer or for item management.

Do you think that WiiU is a step foward?

The Wii U is delivering everything so far that Nintendo promised it would back in 2011. Wii U is a powerful HD console (HDMI cable included) with a new touchscreen controller, and a lot more third party support. All that remains to be seen is how much better their online service is on the Wii U. Being able to transfer our VC games was great news. Not imposing a 40MB file size limit on developers is going to be a big improvement too.

Do you think Nintendo Network won't be terrible?

Probably won't be as good as Xbox Live. But I'd be surprised if it wasn't better than it was with the old Wii.

Sjoerd wrote:

Do you think most 3rd party developers will ignore the gamepad, because they think it's to much of a hassle?

I hope so. The worst thing developers could do is force touch controls into a multiplatform game. Games like Darksiders 2 and Call of Duty seem to have the right idea. I'm more worried that devs will overuse the touch screen and completely neglect the Wiimote and Wii U Pro controller. Games should support a ton of control options.

What I'm trying to say is; Why should I buy a WiiU when I feel i'm not part of the audience anymore?
I love Nintendo franchises, but knowing it'll take a year before they enter the fray, is it worth the purchase?

You could just enjoy your 3DS and wait it out for the nextbox.

I shall purge your existence off of the face of the earth! Anyway, the 3DS and Vita are getting games a bit slow for my taste, but, I can still make it. (I wish I was buying Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon this year though -_-)

Ah one of the many downside of being an early adopter... so much time is spent waiting. Meanwhile those who buy into a system a couple years late get the joy of finding exciting games to play everywhere they look.

Yes, but you will have to buy some games used/ on teh interwebs in order to play a game that came out a few years ago.

I think that was the problem with Wii and even more so with Wii U. In even giving developers the option they're making experiences that are the same as other consoles. If you're going to make Call of Duty for Wii U play exactly the same as Xbox or Playstation then just own one of those systems. The Wii U is suppose to be different and innovative. If you're just going to throw a map on the second screen then forget it, why bother upgrading. If the GamePad was the only controller available this would force developers to get creative with it, maybe even create a Call of Duty that is very unique to the Wii U.

I feel like the Wii U is going to be a terrible cross platform system just like the Wii was. When the PS4 and Xbox 720 launch with even better graphics the Wii U is going to be left with dated ports that control like crap rather then developers creating unique experiences for the Wii U. There weren't many cross platform games for the Wii that were better then the Xbox or Playstation. Anything that was good on the Wii was typically exclusive to the system. If I can get unique experiences and awesome graphics then count me in. But if I can get better graphics and basically the same controls on other systems then i'm going to that system.

Yes, but you will have to buy some games used/ on teh interwebs in order to play a game that came out a few years ago.

That's actually a plus, since you'll be getting games way cheaper. Almost all games lose value fast, so waiting two years will mean games will be pretty cheap.
I've never gotten a system at launch, and the one I got closest to launch was 3DS; even then, I waited four months.

Frankly, getting a system late in its lifespan offers a lot more advantages. The only option that it doesn't offer is that you don't have the opportunity of owning the device before other people. I get the appeal of that, but I definitely lean more towards the other side.
