I just bought 5 games on the Wii U eShop... i had no idea their line-up was so terrible. What the heck did I spend my money on if the Wii U gots no games????

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

That is my big purchase plan for next month. Sadly I won't get to play it on Halloween, but maybe leading up to it.

Is there any reason why we still care about sales at this point?

Exactly. Let's just enjoy our games and hope the NX is amazing.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

@Blast: Well I care to an extent. It'd be kind of nice to be able to buy just one system instead of 2 just so you have a system for a specific set of games. Multiplatform gaming is not a cheap hobby.

Zelda and Star Fox being released early would be a far greater problem. How many games need to be rushed in time for Christmas, only to be mediocre, buggy, or both, before we realize that a delay is almost always the best solution? Do we want another Sonic 06? Another KOTOR 2? Sometimes it feels like we do.

So Nintendo's Holiday 2015 might not be the best it can be. So? I'd rather a sales period be slower then have a new Zelda or Starfox that is eternally regarded as bad, or has bugs up the wazoo, to the point you have to redownload a sizable chunk of the game JUST to get it potentially working.

And there's still no shortage of games. Others have mentioned plenty. And I've also got StarCraft II Legacy of the Void on PC on my list. Between that and Nintendo's offerings, this year's end still looks good.

I can't speak for everyone, but I am getting Zelda U regardless of the release date, so the delay from holiday release doesn't really affect me that much.

Exclusives are a thing on all consoles though, so the point is moot

Unless Zelda U is the next OOT, I'm confused on why this matters. Like it's disappointing certainly, but I am long past the point where 2 games being delayed is that relevant. 2 games is less than the amount of games that come out on Steam on a daily basis. Sometimes good games even.

Like I'm confused on how limited your interest in gaming is when you would be unable to find worthwhile games because 2 games were delayed. I mean, I don't own Mario Maker yet but I'm still playing video games shockingly.

2 is less than the amount of unplayed and critically aclaimed AAA games I have in my Steam Library that I have personally put in a category titled SHOULD BEAT

What now? I'll be playing a lot of games this end of the year. I don't get how anyone would be complaining, there are a lot of good games on the console.

Check out my super awesome Super Mario Maker levels.

Yep, it just means I can try to catch-up on my backlog, which is only expanding thanks to my recent purchase of a PS3 Super Slim. Of course it helps that my tastes tend towards pick-up-and-play games, but I'm doubtful I'll get through my Zelda games before Zelda U or a replay of Xenoblade Chronicles before Xenoblade Chronicles X. Nintendo could bankrupt tomorrow and I doubt I'd notice for a few years to be honest!

Xenoblade Chronicles! Also going to check out Legend of Legacy on 3DS, and will likely give Wooly World a shot.

My most wanted games are Fatal Frame and Xenoblade Chronicles X; so the Star Fox delay isn't a problem for me. Having Star Fox and Zelda for 2016 gives the Wiii U a better final year too (as I expect it'll be superseded by NX in 2017).

As for system sales, I doubt that Star Fox would push that many units, so Nintendo will be relying on their perennials like Super Mario Maker, Mario Kart 8, Smash Bros etc as an accumulative reason to have a Wii U.

Now looking back two months later it looks like the U will surpass my expectations ( with the great bundle deals 250.00 with Splatoon and mario kart 8 and the number 1 sales at target.com for black friday_ I think their best bet will keep the price down throughout due to lack luster holiday lineup of new games( with the exception of xenoblade!).
