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?

could have yoused the money for ps4
To be honest, I like my Wii U and I’m not worried at all. I bought the exclusives and I bought the likely titles my sis and bro won’t want to play on our ps3. So as far as games go for me I have plenty and when it comes to exclusives I know Nintendo has about a good 10 to 12 titles that are exclusives that they can release and about a sequel for at least half of them…that adds up to at least 20 or 15 exclusives.
i wish I would have waited and not got the system when it first came out. So far it has been a purchase I regret. I find myself buying games that i would rather play on my PS3 to justify my Wii U purchase.
been playing my wii u more then my 360 lately. been playing more and more monster hunter 3 ultimate. but some more games would be great
I figured I'd have one by now, but nope, I see no reason yet ... Nintendo is definitely slacking bad.
Of course, if there new Super Smash Bros. and Winder Waker HD, then I will love it Wii U.
I don't even have one yet..but that doesn't mean I won't get one when they actually announce some games.
I love mine personally, but I only just got it, so I haven't been waiting for new games like first adopters have been
I will admit, I haven't used it much lately. But I certainly look forward to playing the next Zelda/Mario/Metroid. And I definitely look forward to some of the cool ideas that developers have in mind in regards to the controller. As for the Nintendo-haters who like to make cowardly comments from the privacy of their keyboards, nobody cares about your opinion. Literally, no one cares. Opinions of 13 year-old fanboys have no value whatsoever.
I can't really complain too much. It has been slow, yes, but it hasn't been dead for me. I still put it to use by playing Wii games, and well...Pandora's Tower comes out tomorrow. And I actually finally got around to popping in Nintendo Land...and I was shocked. There really is some potential for using that game pad that I thought were really smart and different. I think devs just need to give it a chance, put out something unique, and work with it. It has great potential!
Hey, it's aight.
I honestly like the console overall, and I think that it is a good investment. The first party games are really keeping it from biting the dust though. Besides them, the only other games I have are NFSMWU and Lego City. Too many old ports in my opinion, but it will get better.
Yeah, its still a lot of fun and I would still highly recommend it.
I've had mine since Christmas and have played it sparingly since then, I played the crap out of it for the first couple weeks though. It'd be nice if Nintendo got more 3rd party support but I didn't get it for that, I got it for the exclusives which I will be on like stink on a monkey.
