Between its 360-ripoff Pro controller and slightly beefier specs, the Wii U could carve a niche for itself, until the new Xbox and PlayStation come along to make it look like an underpowered calculator, that is. My brother's kids got one for Christmas, but as we went to my sister's for Boxing Day, I didn't get my hands on it.
Digital sales are only sluggish in the UK because of lazy price conversions making everything 50% more expensive! Factor in the lack of Online Passes and other offers and you'd have to be certifiable to go digital. It's not just Xbox gouging us, PSN and Steam are just as bad! Steam at least have decent sales, though, and PSN give you some games for no extra cost after a subscription fee. Xbox's idea of a sale is 33% off something that is 50% overpriced to begin with.
I don't get the appeal at all. Like what do they do... say something stupid then read the replies while they touch themselves? - Vampyre_Ghost on trolls.
