I thought up a few distinguishing features that sets the WiiU apart from the hdtwins. Simple things that make the difference. If i didnt list something in the poll lmk.
My favorite is the touch screen. Maybe its the obvious choice but not an easy one for me to make. Heres why I like it: immersion. Never having to pause an experience. Inventory and everything at your disposal. It makes multiplats like darksiders ii better, so much better. Games like skyrim, with its awful inventory, could stand to benefit.
My second favorite feature is the "fast as hell" in game web browser. Usually when i'm lurking vgchartz it's on Wii U with a game running in the background. And the browser kicks some serious ass.
Third is playon.tv It lets me control movies on the tv while i browse the net with the gamepad. The touch screen makes choosing movies fluid. I got a year free but im getting the lifetime subscription. Every Wii U owner with a pc should have it.
Fourth is ZombiU. It was worth the admission.
That was it. I felt like doing a thread like this for awhile. Hopefully someone who never played a WiiU before might see something posted in here and understand theres more than brand loyalty when it comes to Wii U owners.
There is not just one reason to like it, but you covered most of it for me already lol :P
The eShop is quiet well done, Miiverse doesn't have as many crazy people due to good modding, html5 porn sites work like gang busters, and will download updates and install them even after you turn the console off.

I won my bet with Lawlight, PS3 shipped way less than 11M in 2013.
