    As of right now, I plan on waiting a little while before I start getting the Wii U. Though, considering how much the system sold within the first day, it's probably going to be sold out everywhere within the coming months.

      Can you provide more information about the firmware issues - updates needed when running it for the first time, I read an article on "The Guardian" about this, but it would be better to hear it from a person that has the actual product.

      The article is located here: Nintendo Wii U problems

        Demo the Wii U in the store and then play it at home. The difference is night and day.


        What do you mean?

          The Wii should have been HD from the start (instead of just 480p), but Nintendo didn't think it was important while Sony and Microsoft did. This turned me away from the Wii from the start. I bought both the PS3 and 360 and ended up using the PS3 the most even though the 360 has slightly better graphics on some games.

          So far I've been impressed with the Wii U, but more impressed how the PS3 and 360 can still compete with it. The graphics are defiantly crisper and smoother, but still not up there with PC games. I can live with or without the controller. I did notice the menus load really slow and this seems to be a big complaint.

            Nintendo made the right choice in not making the Wii HD. Had the company continued the technical arms race with MS and Sony it would've been buried.

              There is another controller available that looks a lot like an xbox 360 controller for the more hardcore gamer. However, they go for about 40 bucks

                They should have made it HD capable through the component video cable. Even the PS2 hardware was capable up upscaling to HD. When the Wii came out in late 2006 HD was starting to really take off. The Xbox 360 was launched a year earlier and had 720p support. I know it was a cost issue. To make it HD would have raised the price of the system and would have resulted in fewer sales. It worked in their favor, but they lost a sale from me.

                  Playing the system at home (and not a Target) affords the owners of experiencing the good with the bad. You get to see the ins and outs which is something a few minutes at a demo won't give you.
