not sure i want it due to the cost for really not much of a system thats gonna need lots of add ons. also what happens if the screen breaks on the tablet no real way to replace. Starting to seem like a real money pit glad i have not opened it

You should probably return it and invest some of the refund in a nice book on punctuation.

Okay, the post got a little laugh from me, but it really is mean. Why is it that people feel the need to respond to a post and pick out flaws in one's writings. Most adults can read through bad writing, so there is no need to make comments like yours towards reviews. I think being behind computer screens has made people feel like they can just say anything they want to people. The people that say the meanest things are the ones who would not say anything in close to what they are writing in a face to face conversation.

I understand what you are saying. I don't have one, but I have bought things and realized after I recieved them that I was just going to be putting more money into. Video game systems are always going to cost you more though.

From what i have recently read, nintendo will be offering a hard drive for 90 dollars. The games are 60 dollars which little selection. So basically one game and the system as well as a hard drive brings the total up to approx 500 dollars.

IMHO, return it. I always wait a least a yr b4 buyng a new game system. Price may go down a bit and time for kinks to get worked out, Also, the people bored with games sell them so I get them for a much lower price at a local game store or online.

I usually wait also but, i am a big sap when it comes to buying gifts for the kids. So I will probably return and get them something more affordable

I thought the black one already had a HDD. I got that one for my son. It does suck that the game prices are up to $60 for Nintendo, but Xbox and PS3 have been there for years. As far as breaking the screen goes, just be careful. it doesn't incorporate the motion sensing for games so you don't need to swing it around. I read that Nintendo will be selling replacements soon, but they will be around $175.(that's what they sell for in Japan now) That's a lot of scratch but that thing is like a super Game Boy. The screen is really nice and my boy can play WiiU games while I switch the the TV inputs over and watch the Niners play...!! It's Win/Win!!

-I hope this helps.

The black one comes with more storage, and a game. I don't think the OP is deciding on whether to return the Wii U, or just letting the forum know he has one.

Hope he didn't pay more than MSRP for it, because they no longer command a premium.

it is only 32 gb which is very small but larger then the 8gb white version. Also with the screen when you have a 8 and 9 year old itis a matter of time before it gets dropped. I do agree with the fact that it can play by itself leaving the tv open for actual television. But overall it is a huge expense for something that only serves for gaming

I may be interested in buying from you if you're getting rid of it! Let me know if that's an option, I've been looking to get one.

ps it was bought at target for the 349.00

once i decide not to keep it, i shall bring back to target. As one person has said already they are getting easier to find. I basically walked into target and asked if they had any. one minute later i was walking out of the store with it

While it will primarily serve as a gaming device in my home, you can also browse the net, watch Netflix, Hulu Plus, Youtube, and Amazon Video. And that is just what is available now. To say it is ONLY a gaming device is incorrect.

again all of those cost extra besides browsing the net which i have a laptop for as well as youtube. But you are correct it does have other functions if one so chooses to do so.

We bought one the week it came out, and we and our kids have had a fabulous time playing it. We bought New Super Mario Bros and Tank Tank Tank to start with, and both have been tons of fun. I was on the fence about the system, but we have a broken Wii and tons of Wii games, so we decided to take the plunge and get the Wii U instead of a new Wii. So far, I'm really glad we got it. The family time, laughing and enjoying new games together, and the kids NOT fighting, is worth the price!

To add to this (or try to) I would say keep it if you are a Nintendo fan and start using it. I finally walked into a game store that said they had a long wait list and bought one I think on the Saturday after Black Friday. I have not hooked it up but I think if the internet is like it is on the Wii ill being using that a lot. The internet on the PS3 does not seem as good as a system then on the Wii not as user friendly. Also I would be surprised that they would put a real hard drive in the Wii U that would be going back the Wii has a memory chip that I know whatever it came with I bought the max it would take. As for adding a hard drive to the Wii U I think you can add any portable hard drive that has its own power plug and the Wii U will be able to used up to 2 terabytes. As for games for the system I think they have more games that were available at launch than any other system and as for cost I have seen some go down to $49 and $39 on sales all ready and I am sure the games will go down in price like other games that are out on the market. As long as you have an HD TV to hook it up to you should be set.

We have a regular wii. Anyhow, we decided to go with an Xbox system this year instead. We will put the wii in the basement and the Xbox on the main level. I have no desire for the wiiu. We tried D's, and lost interest when we got tablets.
