I will get a Wii U. The next Xbox is going to take a while, and I can't sit here with no games for a long time.

I'll buy the Wii U if the price is right, while I have completely skipped the Wii I do feel like there are some amazing games that I feel really missed out on... I've never felt that way about the Xbox 360.

The only thing that would really stop me from picking up a Wii U is if Sony drop the Playstation 4, but that's not likely until at least late 2014. :P

Must be even more overwhelming with this enormous videogame jungle we're currently living in now that you have a second current Handheld.
And if you just bought the Vita why don't you just return it and get the cash back? Next time spend your money wisely and get yourself a Sega Nomad. ;)

For me the Wii has pretty few great games while current XBox has many and will have even more, the problem is that I have most of them for PC, so having an XBoX today has little sense for me. If the new XBoX is able to match PC gaming I will go for one, it is clear that the WiiU cant.

Dig through Ubisoft & all the other nobody lets-rip-you-off shovelware publisher's shovelware (However, Ubisoft has published Assassin's Creed & Rayman [Oh yeah, and the one that did see the Wii was milked like crazy and turned into shovelware]). My List:

  • Metroid Prime Trilogy
  • Both Zelda games
  • Mario Galaxy series
  • Smash Bros.
  • Wario Land
  • Wii Sports Resort
  • Wii Party
  • Goldeneye 007 (that, the original, and the HD versions of this are the only good Bond games)
  • Resident Evil 4 port
  • Sheesh, do you need more? (Yeah, I've got some more)
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns
  • Xenoblade
  • The Last Story
  • Okay, you've asked for it
  • Bit. Trip series
  • World of Goo
  • Kirby's Epic Yarn
  • Star Wars: Force Unleashed
  • Yeah. Case settled.

Might be I'm used to the hundreds and not to the dozens, from around a hundred of Wii games I have I would consider good no more than 15 (and I consider them good in the Wii context only). 15 decent games for an usage period of five years is almost nothing, even more considering that some of these games, while being quite good, are not replayable or are quite short. As said before I'm used to PC gaming, my two Wiis are mostly used by my kids and for them the number of excellent games is no more than six: MGalaxys, Mkarts, DKongR, latests Kirby and Zelda TP, the rest are usually ignored by them. Would this situation be much different with the WiiU? I doubt it pretty much. I would expect a bare minimum of 10 excellent games per year, something quite common if you play PC, and much more diversity than what we have actually for the Wii. I dont want to suffer the current situation with the 3DS, with an output of around 3 decent games per year (I'm too generous here calling them decent).

I'm expecting a bare minimum of 10 excellent games per year on a system, something quite common if you play PC, and much more diversity than what we have for the Wii. I don't want to suffer the current situation with the 3DS, with an output of around 3 decent games per year (Actually I'm being too generous here, calling them decent).

Somewhat translated.

The Xbox 720 probably isn't going to release this year.seeing a console released a few months after it was first announced seems kinda unlikely.

Well, I wouldn't dream of buying a 720 or whatever it will be called. I hate Microsoft's money grubbing ways. $100 dollars for a wireless adapter for the original 360? $60 a year for Xbox Live? Not to mention they rushed the 360 to market and overlooked a few problems, giving the thing an over 50% failure rate and opting with a noisy fan over something quieter. Yeah, they fixed these problems with the 360 S. FIVE. YEARS. LATER. If it takes that long to fix something for good, I don't want to be part of it.

As for when I'll buy a Wii U, I'll probably buy it when I game I eye comes out. I'm not making the same mistake I made with the 3DS, preordering it for the sake of having it first and getting a game I only kinda want with it. If there's a launch game I really want (not very likely :P) then I'll preorder, if it comes with some kinda showcase game for the system (like what Wii Sports was to the Wii) consisting of some of the tech demo games from last E3, then maybe I'll preorder it.
That might be good to pass the time while I wait for a good full game to get.

I'm pretty okay.

15 games is a nice number for a small-medium collection. And if the games are worth playing, it doesn't really matter how many good games there are, as long as playing the good ones is worthwhile. I'm a PC gamer too, and I only buy Nintendo consoles because of Nintendo's great games.

That's really not alot of games and force unleashed doesn't count because it isn't exclusive and you can find better versions on the HD systems.

Is charging $100 for a wireless adapter any worse than charnging insane prices for memory. I mean its not like you just couldn't plug your 360 up. and Live is highly subjective. I don't agree with charging for gaming but Live still brings a better offer than PSN.

Nah, even despite my own grumbling, the Wii still has plenty of great games. I love most of the Wii games I own.

@shinji_70

Yes, paying $100 for a wireless adapter is horrible. There are plenty of people who can't hook up their system to a wired connection (college dudes for instance, aka their main demographic). I'm honestly glad the redesign includes Wireless functionality built in, like there should've been in the first place.

Srs. I hope Microsoft really takes their time with the next Xbox. Nobody wants them to rush the console out the door like they did with the 360 again.

Remember that the only one with a dead home console and in high risk of rushing something in a hurry is just Nintendo, the other two consoles are plenty of life and dont need any urgent replacement.
