I find it possible (or even expect) that the new Metroid will be pushed, cancelled or on par with Fed Force and Other M. Which would be nice, since I liked Other M. Not going to touch the topic of which games on Wii U are worth playing, though Even if that does turn out to be the case the Wii U certainly isn't getting any more games. With Switch doing relatively well and the Wii U discontinued it won't be long before the Switch has a more compelling library. Metroid Prime 4 is just one of those games that may tip the scales. There's also Super Mario Odyssey, Pokemon and whatever else they announce between now end the end of next year.

I'm pretty sure that the JoyCon issues were just in the first batch. Anyways, it does kinda depend on what the end user is after. I'm just saying that in general the Wii U is far from the best option for someone wanting to play some Nintendo games now the Switch is out. Sure maybe there are some users who really want to dive into the Wii/Wii U catalogue. I just reckon there are far more that will be interested in a system that has a future and just happens to also be semi-portable.

Then you'll have a Wii, PS4 and 2DS, covering all the bases with an immense selection of fantastic games that no other combination can hope to compete with. I'm not sure if you're looking at some odd prices or if you're just bad at maths. What you're saying does not add up at all. Doing a quick search right now I can find a couple of Wii Us used with a bunch of games for ~$200-250AU. The cheapest PS4 I can find is for ~$320AU used with a couple of games. Hell, taking into account the games you get in those Wii U bundles people are trying to offload a used 2DS is almost the same price as a used Wii U at this point. When I said that the Wii U is a bad option it had nothing to do with the upfront costs. It's more a case of you get what you pay for. The prices reflect the value of the platforms. Which is why I said that the most expensive pair of platforms (i.e. PC + Switch) is the best. Because it gives you the most options and has the best future. Now if you want to pair a Switch with a PS4? Sure, it's not much different to having a Switch and a PC when push comes to shove. But a 2DS? Yeah, no. It's not 2012 anymore.
