"So many issues hurt this system."0.5 starson by shanemckiness
Pros: Gamepad was a good idea, though not implemented properly. Can play original wii games, but wii games are only 480p and look horrible on hd televisions.
Cons: -Gamepad doesn't sync/connect properly at all times-
-CPU is too slow to port some popular ps3/xbox2 games
-GPU is a few generations behind ps4/xbox3
-Slow RAM and no internal hard drive large enough to store 1 gme
-cannot play dvd, cds, or blue ray.
Summary: I love Nintendo, unfortunately, they had a huge opportunity to release a game console 1 yr ahead of sony and microsoft, and they completely blundered it. The hardware is out of date, of very poor quality, and barely works at times. There has been no major game releases either, meaning the next xbox/ps will be out before the wii u even starts. A great shame that Nintendo did this to their fans.
If you don't like what I have to say, just took at NTDOY stock since Nov 12, or for the past 3-4 years. It falls every week.
