I've said this numerous times over the years in relation to various consoles. I really don't understand this mentality. You put down good money for the system, you're not going to get the full amount back. You have it now, at least get some value out of it.

As for the Wii U well TBH I don't think there's really such a thing as a "dead" console these days. Not from the major players and not like there has been in decades past. Absolute worst case scenario the Wii U ends up having a library about the size of the Gamecube or N64 as well as a flood of indie and VC titles. Same with the XBOne and PS4, regardless of what happens there will be content for those systems.

tl;dr
I like the keep XBOne and then save for a Wii U later option.

Thanks for all the feed back guys/gals. I have been thinking about this for over a month now, just needed some more input. At heart I am a nintendo fan. I don't know but there is just something different about nintendo compared to the others. So I have made my choice and I am trading it in and grabbing a wii u. So next question...what are the first games I should get? I am getting the Zelda bundle ( cant pass that up ) and for sure grabbing monster hunter. What other 2 games should I grab right away. ( btw I'm pre-ordering Mario Cart 8 as well )

Well since you'll have a Adventure RPG, and a Legend of Zelda game, I think you should definitely pick up 3D World. It's a great platformer. If you are into niche titles The Wonderful 101 was probably one of my favorite games of 2013, and don't believe that it has "control issues". The controls are jut not very familiar because there has never been a game with tablet controls like that before. Rayman Legends is great if you want to go 2D on the platforming, and Pikmin 3 is a charming experience if you like micromanaging the little creatures to solve puzzles. I've been enjoying Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze as well, but not as much as I wanted to have.

I know there might be some bias people on here, and yes Im posting on a nintendo site. But Honestly, should I trade my xbox one in for a wii u?..As of right now there aren't a whole lot of games on the X1 to play. I grew up a nintendo fan, but as most as I grew older I was drawn towards the more mature game. Now as I get even older ( old man here ) I find my self shying away from the mature games and missing the games I grew up on. So i ask again, what do you guys think,, and is it worth it to trade and go back to nintendo? Are the dead in the water like every one says?

I always suggest the Wii U as your second console/platform purchase because its literally just exclusives. So if your goal is to get the biggest spread of games then making the Wii U your second choice gives you access to all those exclusive nintendo games. As I have gotten older I to enjoy a wider variety of games and could care less of the rating, its all about fun, and whos to say Mario cant be a mature game(Mario Kart Drinking party!).

IF your coming in now, you will have plenty to play in terms of exclusives, Monster Hunter alone will take over much of your life.

Personally, if you are hesitant about getting a wii u, trade the xbone for a PS4. However, If you want nintendo games, definitely go with the Wii U. That is why I have one.

I don't think you can go wrong with Pikmin 3 and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze to start you off. You can demo Wonderful 101 and Zombi U on the eShop and decide if you want to get those. You can usually buy them for around $20 if you shop around and are patient. eBay of course is your friend. ;)

I really think you should just keep your Xbox One and save up for a Wii U. That way, you would have more game options available, so in case some game you really want to play isn't coming to the Wii U, but is available for the Xbox One/PS4, you would still be able to play it.

I would be careful with the W101 demo, I did not care for it but I purchased it anyway and enjoyed it a lot more.

What kind of games do you like? If you like platformers, definitely Super Mario 3D and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. If you want stuff off the beaten path, go for Pikmin and Wonderful101. If you like zombie survival games at all then ZombiU is a must have.

I'm very tempted to suggest it. In your situation, I'd do it and use any extra left over to save up for a PS4. But that's me. Not you. If you still see value in your XB One, then I suggest trying to save up for a Wii U and just have both. If you think you're done with it, go ahead and sell it. As has been said, tge choice really is yours. Not ours.

I COME UPON THEE WITH RIGHTEOUS FURY FROM THAT OF THE SMASH FANDOM! ILLOGICAL STATEMENTS SHALT BE MET WITH ALL OF MINE RAGE... until I do something else. No sense in being grumpy.

Yep trade away baby. Wii U will be so much more fun.

Edit: good you made the right choice. You should probably start with DK and Super 3D world then maybe Zelda ww or pikmin 3 to get as much as the Nintendo experience you were looking for.

@Unca_LZ Pro memberships at GameStop don't give the extra 10% trade-in value for consoles.

I know. My numbers are still right because I never added 10% to the console trade-in
