Pros: No problem so far, over a year with the console. The gamepad is great.
Other Thoughts: If you love nintendo you must get it, you got you eshop or buy from the store. Fun games for family and friends, loving the game pad because no need of always using the pc, it isnt only for gaming can also use to watch websites, youtube, netflix

Pros: It great for family and kids. Wii U GamePad controller really sturdy and function after often drop on the floor when kids play. Fun to play some game but bit lack expand more games.
Cons: limit games library. Wii U GamePad controller have short battery hours. not much hardcore games.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend get deluxe WII U console that have 32GB onboard for bit ease when add some download games. After that you will need buy external usb storage if you tend to do heavy download games.
I do own ps3 and Wii U console even near future purchase PS4. both have pros and cons but still great to play. PC still superior but when come with family and people who play together then console.

Pros: Finally, a Nintendo console that can do 1080p! I tried playing my Skyward Sword (when the kids aren't using it, which is rare :P) and it finally looks good on a 1080p TV; seeing as the original Wii was only able to do 480p/720p (?). Having a 4 player co-op game like New Mario Bros. was a great idea; and the knowledge of being able to use Wiimotes to play 4 people and the Wii U tablet-controller adds a 5th player who can play the role of either helper or destroyer and manipulate elements on the game screen :D
Cons: The Wii U hybrid tablet-controller seems bulky and there's a higher risk of damage if dropped as opposed to the smaller, sleeker Wiimotes, otherwise no complaints here!
Other Thoughts: My kids play together, they get along playing with it, and there's no need for sharing or taking turns. One happy pappy here :)

Great Next Gen Gaming System for Casual and Hardcore gamers
Pros: Wii U is one of the greatest gaming consoles ever created by nintendo . its main attraction is the gamepad which allows for great game play experience. It is the cheapest next gen gaming console ( its deluxe system is only for 299) Its very family friendly and comes with great titles like Mario, Zelda and pickmin. I had it for an year now and i have been enjoying it since day one. I am a call of duty fan and i never thought that a nintendo gaming console is good for FPS games but turns out I was WRONG; call of duty is so fun on Wii U With the game pad or With the Pro controller (sold seperately)
Cons: The gamepads battery life is short but With few accessories like Uboost from nyko and the high capacity battery from nintendo, I think you will be fine
Other Thoughts: Wii U is very powerfull not like devs say , people think that Wii U is much Weaker in terms of performance compared to ps4 and xbox one but thats wrong. After my analysis of the Wii U system I was able find out that Wii U can do 1.4 teraflops which is very near to the xbox one and Ps4 and to be quite honest I think its even more powerfull than both systems. If you dont believe me then check a game called project cars , it shows how graphically powerfull is Wii U.

Pros: The WII U is a very nice system. You can do alot on the game pad and it is fun for the whole family. This bundle was the best priced of all the bundles we found online or in the store. The Disney Infinity starter was basically no cost at all. The games are all family friendly and easy for our kids to figure out.
Cons: Some of the games the game pad is required to play. Also if you have sneeky kids as we do , they can get the game pad and play the entire game off the small screen on the pad. No need to turn the TV on so they can hide the pad under the covers and play all night:) As for the system it self no real cons

Pros: Finally updated graphics (not next gen but still on par with 360 and PS3). Great interface even though sometimes it is somewhat slow. I got this system for 220 $.
Cons: It came with Skylanders =P (Not saying Skylanders isn't a good game, but i haven't played it and don't plan on playing it). This console is not next gen.
Other Thoughts: I personally like the Wii more than PlayStation and Xbox because it seems to have games that don't get released on PC. I don't seen Bayonetta 2, X, or Smash Brothers ever coming to PC. So that's why i bought a Wii U, I can play next gen games on my PC.

Pros: Beautiful games, beautiful system, the gamepad is gorgeous, and the screen protector is a must! Gamepad charging dock is excellent.
Cons: Gamepad required for most games, even when you're not using it (especially on Wii games, where it's just a duplicate screen of what you're watching on the TV - not sure if you can turn it off in those situations).
Other Thoughts: Screen protector installs more easily than any phone screen protector I have ever installed, you know, when you buy five of them just to make sure you can get one on without trapping dust under it or getting a bubble that is too big to press out?

Pros: Nintendo does it again! It may not get all the titles xbox and sony will create which can be annoying, but they are making strides at developing their "adult" rated gaming titles. But you can only play Mario in the Wii - so that is reason enough for most of us to grab a WiiU.
The console has enough of what gamers want to get the job done with graphics and gameplay quality. Family friendly games and controls make for a fun family experience.
Sylanders is a ton of fun and is easily beaten on the first day on easy mode. i reccommend trying it on hard or medium for a challenge. Be prepared to spen all your piggy bank money on new characters though.
Cons: you will probably have to buy accessories to complete your experience. Only comes with the One massive control pad. No WiiMotes are included and are definitely needed to fully enjoy the system. Make sure you have good netwrok connections as the system as well as many of the games require updates before you can play.
