In my opinion, if there are enough games you want, buy it. Worrying about a new system and it's hypothetical games and hypothetical abilities is, IMO, silly. And unless you are struck with poverty this next year or two, it's not like you couldn't buy the NX then. It's not as if the launch of the NX will make the Wii U's library evaporate. For me, there were plenty of games out and coming to justify the purchase. The whole idea of waiting for NX for me has two problems: 1) even if it is BC, the backlog will be rather large and 2) we still don't have details one what the NX is. If it's "a whole new experience," backwards compatibility of any kind could be out of the question. But I will say wait until December to and see if they cut their price. Or until Amazon has a sale.
