Nintendo's lost all credibility in my book because it's just rehashing the same console over and over and adds some gimmicky new feature, then purposely produces a low amount of it's games/hardware so they're incredibly hard to find then claims the games are in "high demand" due to the low amount they produce, then quickly discontinues them, and they also stay at a high price for far too long, as in forever.
I know many people that just bought a 360 simply because they couldn't locate a Wii console, not to mention how significantly more powerful and better the console is, in addition to the incredibly large library of great games you can get for $20.
I've asked every person I know why they own a Wii, 9 out of 10 said they own it for party games, and the console collects dust.
Also, need I mention that basically everything they release seems to be the 500th version of some 15 year old game. as in the same game, as in Ocarina of Time and every other port they dupe people into buying again.
The Wii U doesn't even support Toslink/Optical out which confuses the hell out of me since it's supposed digital audio uses HDMI when practically every receiver everyone has needs Toslink and most people likely don't have one that supports HDMI in that aspect.
The concept of flailing your body around just to do some thoughtless act such as slashing grass in Zelda games 500 times per minute sounded interesting, until you actually try it using your body instead of your fingers
I truly regret buying my Wii, I feel ripped off, personal opinion.
