    WIIU

    Anybody get one of these gaming systems yet? I think it's pretty cool, but I'm disappointed that it doesn't have many games yet. (Although it's to be expected). My son really wants NCAA football, but since EA Sports stopped making Wii games, we can't even get one in the last four years to play. Anybody find a good place to see IF/When they will release a NCAA football for WiiU? I see they have soccer, Madden13, and NBA.

    Any good games to get? We played Rayman at GameStop and that's a must get.

    NCAA 14 has not been announced for the WiiU, but it's anticipated that when it releases this summer, there will be a WiiU version.

    As far as good games out now, I've heard zombiu is pretty cool.

    I don't have the console personally, so I don't know for sure.

    Seems like Metacritic does a good job with their release calendar (plus it's a great place to get reviews).

    Re: WIIU

    Honestly it hadnt intrigued me all that much. After owning all 3 of PS3, Wii, and Xbox, i'm likely to skip the wiiu, and wait for the next xbox to arrive.

    While the WiiU is finally getting nintendo current games that the wii hadnt been getting for some time, i would worry that when games start taking advantage of the increased specs the xbox720\ps4 will have, the developers will not support the lower-specced wiiU, just like they didnt support the Wii.

    First Nintendo console I haven't bought day one since the 64. Just doesn't have the must have title for me. However, when the next Zelda or mario title that's not New Super Mario Bros. comes out I will probably buy. Going back to the gamecube, the only reason I could see an older gamer even wanting a Nintendo console is if you love their first party titles.

    ditto. I really don't see anything in the WiiU that tells me to buy it. The original wii had a new Zelda at launch so I had to buy it. No Zelda for WiiU yet so I'll wait.
