Gonna get straight to the point here... (then waffle for a while...)
Will you ever want to purchase a Wii U?
If yes, then what criteria do Nintendo have to fulfill to make that happen?
The Wii U was never (from a gamers perspective), going to be their only console. This follows from the Wii albeit with a different approach (main problem being games and price point have f'ed them up).
We all have one 'main' brand, mine being 360 and MS at the moment, but the Wii fitted in nicely as a 'side' console for this generation and Nintendo obviously benefited a great deal.
So, lets assume the Wii U is and always was going to be a secondary console (the same as the 360 / PS3 was to some people this gen), then what would make you purchase?
Let's also assume that unless Nintendo fuck up royally that these games will all be stellar in playability and quality:
Mario Kart U
Etc, all un-announced Nintendo games
Fire Emblem Cross Over
Etc... And any stuff they are holding back to counter next gen.
The question again being; If the Wii U starts to deliver lots of high rated titles, will anyone 'bite'?
How many quality games need to be on a system before it registers for you?
A prime example of this is the 'Vita', i feel it's really starting to pick up pace now, especially after the indie announcements, hence my re-purchase.
I will be mainly 720 next gen, unless MS mess up big time, if not then PS4 for Multiplat then 720 and Wii U for exclusives...
With the 720 / PS4 likely to be fairly costly on launch, what will your second choice of console be?
Anyway, lots of questions! :)
