We've owned a Wii for ever so I looked very, very hard at buying a Wii U, whilst considering the bundles on offer for the Xbox and PS3. I factored in the vast back-catalogue of XBox/PS3 games available, either new or second-hand, all in HD and some in Full HD.
We ended up getting an XBox 250GB system with Kinect and three games for $219.00. Somebody had printed the price ticket out incorrectly and they had to honour that price. Needless to say they took the sticker down after I bought it. My kids are having a ball just going through the game demos on XBox Live and are making a list of future purchases
For me, the gee-wizz factor of the Wii U wasn't enough to get it over the line, not with Wii U games being the price they are at the moment. I just wasn't prepared to invest that much cash into a system that I felt wasn't all that convincing.
