Default POLL: Do You Want a Wii U Now?

So this morning we had our Wii U Direct and some interesting games were shown off. Between The Wind Waker HD, Super Smash Bros 4, Super Mario 3D World, and Mario Kart 8, Nintendo clearly wants your rupees. Do you think they succeeded in persuading you to purchase the console, or are you still not convinced?

You forgot an option. I would have checked "No. Who cares about Metroid?"

I have one, and I'm glad. Wind Waker, Deus Ex, Pikmin, 101, and Mario will hold me over until the big titles start dropping in 2014.

I have ALWAYS wanted a Wii U since the launch day so I can't vote for this^^

The problem is I don't have enough money and my huge backlog of games

I won't buy any PS4 or XBox, my target is the WII U !!!!!!!!!!

Well, Nintendo dissapointed me again at this years e3 and with the ps4 only 50 bucks more than the Wii U with waay better hardware and features why even bother. I guess I'll keep my Wii U for Zelda and thats about it. Besides that I think Im through with Nintendo on the console front. I love them but what was shown off for PS4 and Xbox One had more of my interest than a new Mario game or zelda remake.

For all 3 of the console developers, there has always been that one thing that has kept it alive. For Xbox and PlayStation a good deal of that comes from hardware alone. Nintendo really doesn't have (imo) "Next-Gen" hardware. Yet everybody will buy the Wii U Zelda, Super Mario, Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Metroid, the list goes on and on. So I guess, as they say, no matter what hardware you have it all comes down to the software.

As for me, I doubt I'll get a Wii U. I would like to get a next-gen console but I'm unsure if I'll get any of the 3. Although the PS4 is looking nicer to me everyday, I'm still biased towards Xbone for some reason. Looks like the Wii U is gonna be one of those consoles I get in 5 or 6 years for cheap so I can play those Zelda/Mario/Metroid/so on games I wanted.

I'm still not on board for the Wii U yet. Not sure why, but nothing has sold me over.

Also, after like 18 years of disliking Nintendo I think I'm finally being won over.

If the games at e3 were all coming out this year, I would get it. Right now the wii u looks like a 2014 purchase to me. I might get the ps4 before then if it has good launch titles. If the xbox one didn't have drm I would really want one. I am waiting to see if the drm screws them so badlt they need to take the "features" away.

The upcoming Zelda for it already wants me to get a Wii U...Sadly, too many good 3DS games and it's literally impossible for me to save up money. *sadface*

I'm dying to get one because of MK8 and SM3DW but I can't since the white basic WiiU costs $500 in my country :/

I'll might get one around Christmas.... in 2014. All the good games release next year and there's literally no 3rd party games.

X and Bayonetta 2 will probably tide me over, but I really wanted Metroid or F-Zero :/

Next year, but not this year. I'm pleased with next year's line-up, but this year's line-up is still mediocre. A remastered port of a 10 year old game (TWWHD) and a NSMB-like sequel to Super Mario 3D Land just aren't going to cut it.

The "new" Mario game wasn't very impressive by any means, so I am still on the fence for buying a Wii U. Another Donkey Kong Country wasn't really on my mind either.

If they would have shown a new Metroid, then I would definitely have wanted one. I love me some WindWaker, but I need a price drop for the Wii U first.

Im on the border, I think if they would have shown a Metroid game I would have got one the day of because I have been saving for awhile. Im not worried too much about no 3rd party support, I have my Pc for that. But X, Bayo 2, Smash, Mario Kart 8 all looks great but arnt coming until 2014. The wonderful 101 and Wind Waker Remake looked good, but that is not enough to justify the purchase yet.

I want to get one but there's only like 3 games I want for it and one of them isn't coming out until 2014. So I don't even know.

I want a Wii U, but still not pressed to get it in the near future. In spite of that, I'm still humoring getting one around the holidays-- I could at least play WWHD and Earthbound then :'p

We'll see...

Question Not sure but mature games might tempt me into it

Honestly it's a good set of games but as soon as xbox one and PS4 hits the shelves Nintendo can kiss there marketing goodbye. (Not that I'm a fanboy but that's what happened in the last generation) but I'm glad there finally getting games like mass effect and watchdogs and call of duty were you don't have to use the stupid Wii remote and nun Chuck to aim.
So I might get it.
