The lights are on
It's almost been five months since Nintendo launched the Wii U. The system hit with some solid first-party offerings like New Super Mario Bros. U along with ports of popular games like Batman: Arkham City and Assassin's Creed III. Wii U owners haven't had much new to play since the console's release, and to make matters worse titles are being delayed and canceled. So are you still happy you have one?
Wii U owners have been hit with some bad news. Rayman Legends is no longer a Wii U exclusive, and the game was delayed to line up with PS3 and 360 releases. The Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines was also canceled following the game's dismal reviews. That may seem like a blessing more than a curse, but it still stinks that Wii U owners don't get the chance to try the game out for themselves. Additionally, Nintendo still hasn't made it possible for former Wii owners to transfer their old Virtual Console purchases over to the Wii U for play on the GamePad.
With all that in mind, do you Wii U owners still feel good about having purchased it? If you haven't bought it but were initially tempted, are you still thinking of picking one up?

I'm still enjoying mine, but I'm not donating all of my time to it. I know E3 will bring a lot of stuff for it, and there are updates coming soon to make it even better.
I'd probably like it if I owned one.
I really like my Wii U, but I just wish I had more to do with it. Still waiting on some games to get me using it more. I know that there will be games in due time, but the wait has been kinda unfair...
I do still plan on buying it eventually, along with the PS4 and next Xbox, but I am not in a rush to purchase the systems, since I primarily play on PC. So far for the PS4, Killzone 4 looks really good, since I already am a fan of the series. The Wii U still needs some exclusive games that would make me really want it. And for the Xbox (720) I am awating the announcment to see what is in store for it.
