You're SOL for the time being. You won't be able to preorder it, I'd check back in the day it releases.

Yeah. The box.  This thing isn't going to be opened.

You realize that's a bit of a ridiculous request at this point in time, right? Consoles that have been on the market for 8 years are just now rolling around to the $200 price point.

 

I don't know - the PS3/360 are almost as powerful as the WiiU and in a few weeks a $300 WiiU is going to look way overpriced next to a $400 PS4.  Maybe $230-$250 is a good price point?  I guess you could argue it is $250 now with a $50 pack-in but it still feels overpriced.  They aren't really delivering anything new other than the controller screen (which I'm not sold on at all) to justify the price.  The exclusives look like fun but we've all pretty much played them to death at this point in some form or another.

There have been only 2 other Pikmin games in 10 years and no one has really been close to the formula. Wonderful 101, good or bad, is pretty much one of kind right now. The pad is very debatable as useful I agree but, again, it is something that you don't get anywhere else. I think the Wii U will end up being kinda niche like the Gamecube but if you want the exclusives, many of which will be new and unique, it's the only way.

It's hard to convince anyone if you don't enjoy Nintendo titles.

Truth is the Wii had a lot of variety even with the graphics lacking when it came to Nintendo titles.

 

However, third party wise there wasn't much to brag about. It didn't help when House of the Dead Overkill and the RE on rail shooters got PS3 HD ports. So far we only have Lego City, ZombiU and Wonderful 101. If your not buying a Wii U for Nintendo titles chances are you'll always be set up for disappointment. Then again It's not fair to remove the Sony exclusives from PS3 and MS from 360 (especially the 360, man that system would be a wasteland without the MS exclusives.)


It's just that simple.

Pikmin 3 would probably be my first purchase - but I've played the first 2 a lot.  I own them both on Gamecube (my favorite console from that gen) and played through them again on the Wii (multiple times).  I doubt Pikmin 3 is that much different but it does look like fun.  Same thing can be said for most of the Nintendo IP like Mario 3D, NSMB, Smash Brothers, Mario Kart, Zelda, etc.  Great games but nothing new. 

 

IMHO spec doesn't equal to fun level.

I agree but Nintendo needs to sell consoles, not try to charge a premium for fun.

So... I'm picking this up tomorrow, but I'm starting to get paranoid about the Wii U Game Pad getting damaged / dropped, etc... I don't think I would be normally, but since this is a limited edition gamepad I wouldn't want it to get scratched or broken. My wife is a bit of a drop-o-holic (probably dropped her iphone a dozen times) and I wouldn't put it past myself to drop it either.

 

Should I get the Nerf Armor? I haven't had a Wii U up to this point so I don't really know what the best way to go is. I imagine that the Nerf Armor isn't going to look very good on the black / gold game pad...

 

Hori Screen Protector yea / nea?

You really, honestly think that the PS3 and 360 are "almost as powerful" as the Wii U/

Really?

I'm getting the Skinomi full protector for the gamepad. It's clear so I can still see the design and will provide scratch resistance.

Eh, the problem is that some people are way too focused on specs. Like you can buy the ultra slim PS3 for $199, which the Wii U is comparable to (though much more powerful). So if we assume the MSRP for that is fair (lets not argue about how the bundles are a better deal, because that isn't the point), then the Wii U is probably a $199 system too. This is where most people stop and act like that $100 dollar difference in price is Nintendo over charging. However, the Wii U uses that gamepad, which isn't exactly a cheap piece of tech. Nintendo is selling placement ones for $150, so that explains the missing $100 dollars easy. However, Nintendo also threw in the charging cradle, normal cradle (something they were selling for $20 separately and something Sony has tried to sell for a similar price), 1 game (Zombi U / LoZ / Nintendoland) and yet people still call it over priced / asking for a premium. 

 

Yes it's weak, but it's not like the price was absurdly high like the 3DS at launch. 


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

I broke down and got a 32 GB Wii U off Craigslist for $200 today, came with the box and Nintendoland plus a Wii Mote Plus with nunchuck and Animal Crossing Wii.  I'll probably leave the Zelda one boxed.

I'm really paranoid that is why I'm getting the Wii U. I do not like how the PS4 and X1's connectivity to social media networks and how Microsoft willing gave up people info to the NSA. Even my next PC will run on Linux because the German government said aren't using windows 8 because it has a back door for the NSA.

I 100% recommend the Hori Screen Protector and PDPs gamepad silicone cover. With the Hori screen protector, make sure you're getting the one that's just a screen protector. Hori has another one that comes with an extra stylus, but the screen protector on that one is of lesser quality.

The only thing about the PDP silicone cover is that it covers up the Zelda design. Seems like it would defeat the purpose? Or does it even matter? Does the PDP silicone cover leave scratches or anything? Also, would it protect it at all if the game pad dropped to the ground?

 

Thanks!

I guess if you don't want to cover up the Zelda design you can go with the a clear cover that's offered by other companies. For me, I have the cover on so I don't have to worry about fingerprints, dirty hands from other people, and the extra comfort from the rubber cover. It won't protect the gamepad from a drop though.

Can I buy this system and simply keep the Wii U pad, take my old Wii U pad and trade it in? Are the downloaded titles stored in the wii u pad or in the system itself?

 

Basically trying to get that wii u pad as cheap as possible.

It can be annoying to place on for those inexperience with wet application skin/screen protector but I much prefer them over dry.

 

And if you want to cover the console too.
