    Wii U Purchasing Question

    Hi,

    I have not found other thread on this topic so I make question: is it worth now to buy Wii U?

    I may find new Wii U with warranty for around 250 euro (~330$), games are around 25 euro (~33$). I look forward to test this new gamepad idea, especially games like ME3 (I make "meah" after ME2, but it interests me how such game looks on small screen). I see that there are already softmods for Wii U to plai Wii games so my old console may finally go on pension after 7 years. Any ups or downs for buying Wii U right now?

    Ups: Mario in HD! 32gb (8gb at the least) of memory compared to the Wii's 512mb, Virtual Console gives you access to great classics which you can play off the TV using the game pad.

    Downs: Not a big selection of games right now...only a handful have grabbed my interest.

    We know Nintendo is going to support the console with some great games but you have to decide if you want to buy it now or wait for more of those games to come out first (and perhaps a price drop).

    My family plays Nintendoland the most out of any game right now and it gets played alot. The other thing that has been great is the 30cent virtual console sales, you can still get super metroid but the other games to follow are not that great. The gamepad and off tv play are great. The eshop is much improved over the wii shop channel and has some nice sales form time to time. NSMBU and Lego City Undercover are also excellent Wii U exclusive games (ZombiU may also interest you). If you want to play these then get the system now as most of the other games are cross platform titles. I have also seen from time to time pretty good sales on wii U retail games.

    I got my deluxe set for $50 off ($300) and am very happy with my purchase and eagerly looking forward to more great games that I know are coming to the system.

    What about battery life? When I get into moods where I want to play my Wii, they usually last hours. I've heard the Wii U controllers need charged like every three to four hours. If so that would seem pretty annoying . . .

    The Pro Controller supposedly gets up to 80hrs but the gamepad gets only about 5 at most.

    We charged my Pro Controller when it was new in November. We've yet to have to recharge it.

    I also have an order on amazon for a replacement battery that should at least double the GamePad battery life, but the product has been out of stock for months, so still sits in my order bin waiting for it to be available.

    Thanks and sorry, I usually do not make new threads.


    Thanks for ups, downs and tips. My computer is old so no more gaming oon it and myself I can spend only 3-4h weekly to play (I need to save world from economy crisis first of all ). I thought about checking first ME3 and New Super Mario Bros U, then maybe Batman and Monster Hunter. Nintendoland looks nice but can you play it with Wiilots? I would like to do battle with sister of friends.

    If you mean "Wii Remotes", then yes. The multi-player games in Nintendo Land have one player on the GamePad and all other players on Wii Remotes. Motion Plus is required for some of the mini games, but not all.
