After thinking about it all this time, there's one question that has still gone unanswered in my head: why?
I would only buy the WiiU if it could play both Wii games as well as old GC games, seeing as my old Wii is pretty much half-broken and I can't ever be bothered to buy a new one. >>;
I'll see what the WiiU has going for it, and if anything, see if it's something worth getting for me. As for right now, no.
