Do you honestly believe that the Wii U will be discontinued, marked down to $150 and shuffled off in the next few months when games like SSB, Mario Kart and X are coming out next year?


Or, to put it more succintly:

Its a neat little console but no internet and the fact the wii u needs money put towards buying it's software seems kind of like a waste of time to put it out. Even the author questions who is going to buy it a game collector or the person who just wants to play games on the cheap. 





I would get one for 50 bucks but it would just be a collectors item at the end of the day. I do like the red and black color scheme, I would get a wii u in that color. If the wind waker console had been gold and black like the xl I would have gotten it if there was a way to transfer software over to it.

Apart from Rayman Origins/EA Sports (which are on every system imaginable) and Goldeneye (2010), every game you listed is 2009 or prior.  From summer/fall of 09 to the beginning of 11 there was jack shit for third party Wii games, both on physical media and Wii Ware.  There have been a few bright spots since then but for the most part Nintendo home consoles are first party machines now.  Hopefully things will turn around this holiday season with SMB3DW and all of the bundles being pushed but who knows.


I've only encountered one pair of the Mario & Luigi Wiimotes at a Kmart.  Haven't seen any bundles other than the launch Deluxe and the Wind Waker one.


Also, apparently you can visit select Pottery Barn Teen locations and play SM3DW from now until the end of the month...really not understanding why Nintendo chose to partner with the "teen" version of a chain gift shop not aimed at gamers whatsoever, but yeah, here you go: http://www.pbteen.com/pages/wiiu/
