When the wii was announced I had a countdown clock on my PC at work. I preordered the console and four games (which I never normally do) I bunked off work early and set it all up and...I liked it for a while. I enjoyed Zelda and Mario and wii sports and then...nothing. Played some virtual console. Ended up buying shit like mario soccer or whatever it's called for Ł40. Then my wife bought me a playstation and I may as well have thrown the wii in the bin. Nintendo obviously didn't care about people like me. They were going after the aged and mothers, fair enough but I knew then I'd never buy another Nintendo console. Skyword sword was the final straw and I'm the OP in that thread.
An aside from all that the wii u is clearly going to be a disaster. It looks like shit, it has a pointless gimmick as a USP, it has no support, it's expensive. It'll be dead and buried in two years time. Mark my words.
