@NintendoPro64 Thanks man

With the Wii U VC, i have to admit i was dissapointed when i saw the Wii U's line up after seeing the Wii's on Wikipedia. But as my friend said "Mate, don't forget it's 6 months old, it's gonna take some time". Obviously, i immediately felt silly.

I think content can be refunded if it's foreseen they will knock the prices down and failed to announce it but sadly, it's just a gamble with the console. It is down to us to decide when to be business savvy with buying our consoles so i guess that would mean we have no right to complain. Don't get me wrong, i've not set out to destroy what you're saying because i am actually going to be buying one in two weeks! so thats a very real situation for me

At the end of the day, as long as i get a good service and hours of fun i personally don't mind if the price drops after i bought one. A little gutted in a comedy way, but none too bothered.

Enjoy your day.

@Caryslan Absolutely, i should have made myself clearer.

This is mainly a matter of preference and my own moral compass. Of course we must consider The Playstation 3 and the Xbox360 (both of which i own) as serious games consoles, but i'm sure you would agree yourself, the original point of providing a quality, family, fun and imaginative experience at a reasonable cost for the family home has kind of lost its way in search of the mighty dollar. I love Nintendo because not every game has to be a movie style epic. Sometimes, you jump on turtles and collect coins just because it's fun and just because you can

For instance, Sony and Microsoft were first and foremost business corperations, Nintendo were first and foremost family entertainment publishers and distributors. It is in their blood and their history.

Don't get me wrong, i've had a hell of a blast with my other 2 machines, but to me i feel its time to get back to something deeper seated in classic quality, and still with its retro roots to a degree.

Thanks for taking the time to reply to my previous post and enjoy your day/evening.

@TwistedRabbit that is EXACTLY what i plan to do and exactly why i'm leaving their fan base. I think it's important that we take Nintendo into the future with us so our children (If i eventually stop being lazy and settle down) can play on a TRUE gaming system. I'm 26, so luckily i had what i consider the golden age of gaming, but i'm starting to believe only Nintendo can even come close again.

Well done Nintendo. You see, this is the main reason i am converting to the Wii U as my primary gaming console in Two weeks.

I am Sick to death of watching these relatively new companies on the scene using DISGUSTING and underhanded tactics to try and force Nintendo out of the market. The console war is well and truly on right now but 'N' will be getting my money and backing... here is why:

  • Nintendo's tactics have been clean, fair and mature (unlike others)
  • The list of coming rumoured exclusives have made my head spin with excitement.
    The only company you can trust to do the job right in times like these is one thats been here from the early days.
  • Impressed with Nintendo's conduct over a few situations recently.

I've never really owned a Nintendo console apart from the SNES as this was mainly a SEGA household but i am getting childhood excitement just thinking about buying my Wii U.

Time for more people to start giving these guys a break as they are the only company that is still about REAL gaming, quality and original games and most of all FUN!!!
