So as you may already know I'm a Sony fanboy and today I had a discussion with my girlfriend. We actually talked about the Wii U, she's by far not a gamer and doesn't care for video games to much, but as a child she did own a SNES and loved it. So she seen some Wii U commercials and brought it up that it was pretty interesting and I mentioned that you can play old Wii games and download a bunch of games from the N64, Gamecube, SNES and NES. She liked the idea a lot because she wanted to replay the older games she grew up on (and all those girly Wii dancing and exercising games). Also it works out really well that she can be playing the Wii U on the controller while I can be playing the PS3 on the tv and not have to deal with the naggy girlfriend wanting to watch tv.
So now I'm thinking of actually buying a Wii U for her and technically me (I will play some games to try it out, especially the older Mario/Zelda games on the SNES, I'd love to play Link to the past (by the way whats the average price on old downloadable games in the Nintendo store?)) since she said she'd pay for half and then I got to thinking, should I really be stuck with one company? Sure Sony will always be my favorite company but should I branch out and actually buy a Wii U and even go as far as getting a Xbox 360 at some point as well?
Seems like it could make me a happier gamer, but then again I can barely afford all the games I want on the PS3 let a lone buying all the games I want for two other video game systemx, it'll probably just sit there because I'll barely get any games, because of the lack of time and money.
So what's your guys thoughts on this situation?
