Wii U is Nintendo's sixth entry in the console gaming industry. There isn't enough hype for the Wii U on these forums, so my hope is that this thread will buid the hype up for the Wii U. The device has a huge variety of games that range from known console IPs such as Pikmin, Assassin's Creed, and Mario to NEW IPs such as NintendoLand, ZombiU, and Project Cars. The important thing to understand here is that many of the new console IPs have been built ground up to take full advantage of the Wii U' s capabilities. SO THESE ARE EXPERIENCES YOU CAN NOT FIND ANYWHERE ELSE! NOT EVEN ON THE VITA/PS3!!! OR ON XBOX SMARTGLASS!!!!!!

I made a bet with JoeTheBro on February 19, 2014. I say the 3DS will outsell the PS4 at least one month in 2014, he says the 3DS won't. Whoever is right gets to control the other person's sig for a month.
