I bought a 3DS on July 1st and I am so glad I did. But I have to say, it will probably be the last system I get for quite a while. The WiiU looks interesting, but I'm not SUPER ecstatic for it. Plus, I don't think I can climb my way up back to $300 very easily.
DLC and i got 3DS's for our birthday ( we payed for 50$ for ours, our parents payed the rest) but the Wii U is out of my range. Ever. The tablet controllers are gonna cost a crapload, and if the Wii u is 250$ without the controllers, it'll be about 350. i will never have that much money. I regret asking or the 3Ds on my birthday becasue of the price drop. The Ambassador program was a good try, but i barely play any of them because they all really boring.
I have the money all right. The thing is unless they bring out things I want for the wii U at launch, I will not be getting it at launch. I bought the wii only so I could play Twilight princess and I travelled to get the last wii in stock because it was sold out everywhere. It takes a great game to get me to actually buy a console, zelda is one of those titles. Unless wii U offers me any games that I can't get on the 360, then I shall probably wait for a Zelda or Mario title. Now I'll tell you what would get me to buy a Wii U, an HD re-release of Wind waker or Twilight princess on the virtual shop. I'd also buy one if they put Soul Calibur 5 on there, with Link and Ganondorf as guests.
