Games "We're told by someone with access to the NPD's data that sales for January were 'well under' 100,000 units. By our estimates, sales were somewhere between 45,000 and 59,000 units for the month, which is lower than any of the three previous-generation home consoles sold in their worst months, with the possible exception of a recent performance by the original Wii." This doesn't surprise me. I've always wondered: who's the Wii U for? Casual Wii buyers - which comprise most of the Wii owners, I'd guess - have little reason to upgrade, and hardcore Nintendo fans are waiting for the next re-releases of Mario and Zelda from the Nintendo Game-o-tron. Until then, who's going to buy this thing?

I bought one

I bought mine for the HD Zelda coming in 2014; I figured there would be something out worth playing before then, and nintendoland plus the new super Mario brothers games are definitely fun. I can't wait for the new metroid from Retro studios, personally.

tl;dr: Bought one for games over a year away, probably would have been better off waiting.
