Wii U
 
My parents want to buy my 6 year old niece a Wii U for Christmas, but they don't know anything about what they need to buy and what model (are there different ones?) to buy either

I don't know anything about the Wii U.

Little help please

Well that makes two of us. Since when was there another Wii?

There are two, the normal and deluxe. The price difference is $50, so get the deluxe($350). The cheaper one doesn't have enough internal storage and will cause them to have too uninstall games TO install new games.

I'm a tech junkie, and while the Wii U is a new system for Nintendo. Tech wise its about the same power as a 360 or PS3. Its great for kids, probably no one else will be interested.

Just post anymore questions.

honestly if she is six buy her a Wii. Cheaper and bigger library of games. Wii U seems like a waste to me.

There is one advantage to it, only if they all use the same TV. She can play games on the tablet that it comes with, while mom or dad are watching normal TV(games stream to it). It also is backwards compatible, meaning it will play all Wii games.

That being said, it should probably be priced at $200, not $350. It's really overpriced for what is inside it. Sales didn't hit expectations, especially with software sales. I expect a price drop well before next fall, when the new Playstation or Xbox will launch.

I literally watched a grandmother and mom talk them selves out of a Wii U last night at Target. They end up buying a Wii and a DS. The grandmother said "I don't see the value in this at all."

I was cracking up inside if a old lady can see a Wii U is not worth it.

I haven't seen it advertised that much to be honest. Then again, I'm probably not paying attention either.

Agreed completely.

My son is 5 and I just bought him a Wii game for his birthday...loves it.

I don't see the point of the Wii U console. How's the resolution on the tablet part? It better be as good as the TV for $350.
