Just play don’t hate! Buy a Wii U today.
Wii U is one of the most controversial video game systems ever created. The system receives a high amount of attention, arguably more than the next gen consoles combined. However, this attention isn’t good.
Costing less than the soon to be released Xbox One and PS4, the Wii u continues the ground breaking trend of innovation by incorporating the use of a second screen (a tablet) during game play. It only helps that those games purchased not so long ago on the original Wii system are playable. All controllers and Accessories are compatible also.
The system is armed with 2 GB of ram, one dedicated to games while the other to the systems OS. It seems the problem is that developers are claiming it cannot keep up or that it is not powerful enough. Thus, we have the shortage of 3rd party support and the ever growing popularity of hate towards the system. Not only that, the systems aren’t moving off store shelves as they should due to lack of marketing and or confusion between the Wii and Wii U. (Both systems have a similar name and look.)
The Wii U offers a new way to play at a competitive price as it relates to it’s competitors. Those Nintendo icons that stood the test of time will make their appearances on the system bringing back precious memories for those of us who started out with Nintendo originally.
The convenience of being able to play on the tablet alone is an added bonus. Perhaps, someone could save on their electricity bill if only during a game play session by turning off the TV and using the game pad instead. The ability to conversate through Miiverse reminds me of Facebook but for gaming. Feel like posting a pic or a comment about a game? Stuck on a level and not sure how to get past it? Post away and in no time you will have the help you need. The communities of Wii U owners are there to welcome you with open arms no matter what games you have.
Many say that they are bored with the system as it lacks most of the games seen on other systems. Compared to systems Xbox 360 and PS3, the Wii U has some distance to go as far as the game library is concerned. However, since the next generation of gaming has started the other systems are in their transition as PS4 and Xbox One take their place. The Wii U will offer a nice alternative to those systems as the current Nintendo games cannot be found elsewhere.
The Wii U doesn’t deserve the negativity that it receives as it needs more time to grow. The system is only one years old. Let the system mature to full potential before it’s tossed out to slaughter.
