Excerpt: Very fun system. Wasn't sure about the new controller with the built-in screen, but they have worked it into the gameplay nicely. Need some Wii-motes for multi-player games if you don't already have some from a Wii system.
Summary: Don't much care for the included games, but the Wii U is PRETTY FREAKING COOL! My relationship with Nintendo is very much love/hate, but at the end of the day, they have the characters I love (namely Link and LoZ characters) so I'll keep on comin' back. NB: The games come pre-installed on the already tiny 32GB hard drive. Recommend considering the purchase of an external hard drive at some point if you're going to download a lot of games from the eShop.
Summary: I am really loving my Wii U. I got rid of my Wii to purchase this console and I'm glad I did. It was difficult to get accustomed to using a handheld control pad again, but it didn't take long to get back in the swing of "regular" game play. The control pad has better accuracy and I really like that. I do wish that the regular Wii games could be played with the control pad, but those are mostly made to work with the Wii remotes.
Go buy this system, it's just as great as a PS4 or Xbox360 in it's own way

Summary: Only reason I bought this was for Smash Bros but I can see myself playing a lot of other games like Mario Kart 8 and Mario Party 10. Looking forward to future Metroid and Zelda games as well. This system is really amazing and while at first I thought the Gamepad was a gimmick, I've come to love the thing. It's like a super tablet capable of doing so many things like playing your Wii U games on it while watching your favorite programs on t.v.
The games are great especially Smash bros and we actually use the tv ...

Summary: Got this for my little sister for Christmas since our ps3 is experiencing technical difficulties. The games are great especially Smash bros and we actually use the tv remote features and watch youtube and hulu and netflix on out television with it. Any tv can become a smart tv with this.
Summary: This item was a great pick up for my family I figured my kids would enjoy it but never did I guess that my wife I would also enjoy and be able to play as a family it is handy that you can use games that you had for your first wii as well as most of the accessories. The HD quality is excellent and set up is not that difficulty although waiting for the system to update is a timely process when your kids are bugging you to play right away.
