So, at this point, I’ve been a WiiU owner for about 3 weeks. I absolutely love it. It’s a great system once you accept it. A lot of people seem to talk down about the console, and that’s unfortunate.
My WiiU will never be a PS4 or an Xbox One. Sure, I can and have played some great 3rd party games for it, but, for the most part, it’s just not that kind of machine.
Gamers need to accept that it’s a totally different paradigm. Most of the games you’re going to encounter are mostly Nintendo specific as games from Nintendo-blessed developers. Once that fact is accepted, the WiiU isn’t as lacking as we are lead to believe
The only real issue I have is Nintendo’s online system. Most games have some pretty OK online ecosystems, but they just don’t feel that connected. I’d really enjoy for the voice system to have an XBL style party system.
All in all, It’s a pretty awesome console. Super excited for stuff like Hyrule Warriors, SSB4, Zelda U and the like.
