Hiya Everyone!

I'm torn on buying a Wii U sometime in the next month or waiting less than a year getting the new system NX. There are a lot of good games out for the Wii U (Yoshi Wooly World, MarioKart 8, Splatoon, Super Smash Bros, Pokemon Tournament, Pikmin 3, Super Mario Bros U) Just to name a few.

The price of the Wii U has come down and you can definitely get a used one for a really good price. So should I take the plunge and get one? OR wait for the new system NX?

We know next to nothing about the NX. We don't know if it'll be backwards compatible or not. The Wii U does have a lot of good games as you just listed so if you want to play them then go for it. Knowing Nintendo the NX probably won't have anything at launch (besides Zelda, but that's also releasing on Wii U) so now would be a great time to get a used Wii U at a decent price.

I mean I'd buy a Wii U because it's great and has a lot of good games+I found myself catching up on a lot of stuff with the Virtual Console and everything on there. But I don't think taking the NX into account is a smart thing because we don't know anything about it

Okay good points guys! You think paying $275 is expensive for:

Super Smash Brothers Wii U
Splatoon
Super Mario Maker
Yoshis Wooly World
Wii U Game Pad
Yoshi Amiibos (2)
Cords and charging dock
Game pad holder
32 GB Wii U

No, I think that's a good price.

I never really play my Wii U that much. Occasionally I'll play Splatoon or Super Mario Maker, but that's about it. Maybe you should wait for NX. If you don't think the NX is good after a year of it being out, then buy a Wii U.

Thanks Keeby64 for your advice!


I actually ended up buying a 32 GB Black Wii U with:
2 Pro Controllers
Nyko Charging Base
Super Mario 3D World
Bayonetta 2 which also includes a copy of the original Bayonetta 1
Nintendoland
Hyrule Warriors
Super Smash Brothers for Wii U
The Legend of Zelda - The Windwaker HD
All the cables and everything else that originally comes with a brand new one.

For $320.00 I figured that was a good price, because at GameStop a pre-owned one is $232.00 and you get no games with it, but if you buy a new one for $299.99 you get one free game.

Most of the games I'm getting are still around $40-$50 bucks.

So I think I got a good deal.

$320 isn't a bad price considering the Pro Controllers + Games. Think you've got at least $160 in games using after-market prices.

I'd definitely say it was a good deal!

Woohoo! I thought so wasn't sure. But I'm so excited to be finally getting one. I hope I enjoy playing it. I love my 3DS so I'll see what I play more.

I also forgot to mention I also got a Wii U Game Pad too

You made a great decision! I don't play with my Wii U a whole lot recently (mostly because I also own an Xbox One and PS4 with a giant backlog) but if/when you get to play Splatoon, you will become very addicted to it.

I'm honestly pumped for the NX although we really know nothing about it, but I kinda hope that it doesn't launch with Animal Crossing or anything amazing besides Zelda because I'm not sure how broke I will be next March.
