That's my point the Wii U is also a different experience to a tablet/phone. It's a console not a tablet.
It's an entirely different experience?
If they're happy playing games on a tablet/phone why would they need a PS4 or XBOX720 either?
So those kids wouldn't need another tablet? Thanks for pointing that out, it's an even smaller market than I thought!
I don't know of any kids with expensive iPods, iPhones, iPads to play on.
What would you rather buy your kids? A PS4 / 720 where you can keep the console under the tv and let them get their grubby paws on a controller that costs £30 odd to replace, or a console that has a touchscreen controller that is a foot wide that costs £100 or whatever to replace?
I think that when the library improves it'll be a possible "first" console for kids but with 3rd party support looking scarce it's less likely to work for adults unless they're only really interested in Nintendo games.
No, hold on, that's all of them.
