I voted streetpass. Games are great but you can play greater games on the Wii U too. In the past I would have voted 3D, but recently I purchased the new crystal 2DS for $99 and it's still a nifty machine, even without the 3D.

Their use in Smash Bros. is quite brilliant, and they're already selling very well - already sold out on many figures in Amazon. I hope they have some sort of hub game to maximize sales. Having it both with these many uses and a hub game is the big win.

@rjejr comon' have you played it? How you can you compare these little games to the epic adventure of Undercover, and that is also a big series now, if you go to the Lego store there is a pretty big section for it, one of the biggest. LCU is like GTA, it's gigantic. Those other games are border line arcady and short.

@Spoony_Tech Ok, got mine in time, I guess a Black Friday sale :)

@rjejr it is the best Lego videogame though. Selling it like the other versions for cheap diminishes its value. It's a much different open world expansive impressive game. They should still lower it like you said in order to sell it, but it's not just a Lego game.

@ToxieDogg People just try to justify why they're paying for another service. In a world where people pay for cables, HBO, Netflix, Amazon, they have to pay another subscription. So they get some promotions that way, but they're still paying every month, where with the Wii U you don't, which is a huge deal. The DDP and Club Nintendo are just icing on the top here, it's FREE PLUS. It's a lot of money you're saving with the Wii U. Also with electrical bills because it's so much more energy efficient.

I'd play it on the Wii U just because of GamePad usage - map usage is enough, it is incredibly fun when done right, but I'm not paying full price for it, even with the DDP. Hopefully it will drop one day in price big time on the eshop then I'll get it.

Why would I buy this when there's Tetris GB, Tetris DS and Tetris Axis and and... Tetris should stay with Nintendo, this is pointless.

@Ernest_The_Crab I can assure you though that Amazon is huge here in the States. Absolutely huge. And it's a huge market Nintendo is losing. Not sure how the 3DS theory relates also the Wii U's. Hardware seems not to be sold in Amazon while Sony's and Microsoft's do. For a long time. Briefly 3DS's returned then disappared again.

As long as Nintendo doesn't fix the Amazon angle (USA), they are losing millions of sales, who knows how much. Smash Bros best selling game on Amazon - number one, yet the consoles are simply not for sale directly... the bundles would sell like cupcakes but some kind of dispute with Amazon unbelievable.

dumedum commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

Looks like solid use. The best uses that were absolutely magnificent were Zombi U, Arkham City and Mass Effect 3. Deux Ex too but I still need to play this game through. It's true Nintendo didn't nail the game pad as well as some of the third parties, but I guess they did it for Zelda and Pikmin, and in the end, they didn't really use the wii remote that much for Mario Kart or NSMB or Galaxy either... these are experiences which the game pad is not best suited for. It's best suited for action open world games or third person stuff with maps.
