I'm sure more people would have bought one for Rayman than Sonic though

Stop being silly. Sonic is still a much bigger deal despite many disappointing games over the last two decades. The sales show it, the message boards don't. People just love to beat down Sonic and praise Rayman. If you ever read someone saying that they would buy a Wii U for Rayman Legends, they were lying.


It would have been the No1 reason for me if Rayman Legends would have stayed a Wii U exclusive.

Nintendoland was more than enough for me to purchase a WiiU. It looked so much fun! I love it



MH3U, although Pikmin, Wonderful 101 and Lego City were influencing that too.

pikmin 3. Once I saw that footage at E3 I was sold. What a great game.

No game really sold it to me, as i always buy Nintendo. I know that awesome games are always going to come so my harware purchase was day 1. Zombi U was the most interesting launch title but NSMBU really surprised me, i thought it was going to be an expansion of the Wii version but it turned out to be in my opinion the best NSMB game in the series. Seeing Nintendo games in HD with more graphical grunt is always appealing too, Pikmin 3 and Windwaker look gorgeous and Mario has never looked so good with HD lick of paint.

Yeah that's true, sales for Sonic have been strong so there clearly is a large market for it. It's just I don't think I've heard someone say they bought a console for Sonic for about 15 years. We'll get a good idea of whether there are people out there that still do though in the next couple of weeks.

And I resent the dig at poor Ice Climbers



Nintendoland, for its multiplayer, and ZombiU, for being a survival horror like we haven´t seen for ages.



Zombi u and NSMBU



I plan to buy it in February mainly because of Tropical Freeze. Also I will buy SM 3D World, Wind Waker, Xeno.



No single game on that list has made me buy a Wii U, but the combined strength of that line up means I aim to buy a Wii U in January.
