What would nintendo need to have to get you buy a Wii U?

For me, they would need at least three out of these seven things:
- High Definition Graphics (all but confirmed)
- Wind Waker on the virtual console
- Pikmin 3 (Announced and more info will be given at E3)
- An adventure game like Zach and Wiki that uses the tablet controller well
- A remake of Metroid Prime. By remake I mean the Halo Anniversary treatment.
- A new 3d mario game without the Galaxy
- A shiny new IP that is unique and fresh

I've never been much of a Nintendo fan (despite having every Nintendo console aside from the Gamecube). The only game I'm tempted to actually buy for my Wii is Skyward Sword. If they pump out more action adventure games that look as goo as Skyward Sword does I'm in.

a console that matches the power of a PC that all the 3rd party games that prints money

in other words the chances of me getting one are slim

Moar Harvest Moon. Enough, I don't care what console it's on. If the Wii U launches with or promises a Harvest Moon title I will buy it. Call me crazy, but for games about hard work and toil they sure are relaxing.

Offer me a free high-grade PC along with it.

Well, as long as they don't do what Sony and Microsoft are rumored to be doing, just give me some time.

They would need to have Sony and Microsoft not exist. I like Nintendo and all, its just that Im not too interested in their exclusives, and I havent seen enough interesting 3rd party titles to warrant a purchase.

Nintendo selling out to Song so i can play Wind Waker on PS3

If they sold it for 1 i'd buy one.

Other than that, i'd rather make sweet sweet love to a meat slicer than fork out for one of their overpriced gimmicks.

They've already done it.
They said it will have the inevitable Smash Bros. title.

Hmm How about a sequel or spiritual successor to Eternal darkness: Sanity's requiem

I dont need anything other than fun games to play at launch. Its that simple for the majority of people out there

If you can procure pikmin 3, a new 2d mario platformer at launch its going to sell out

I probably will not buy a Wii-U. I saved my money and bought a Wii when it first came out, because it was the innovative one, and the only one priced reasonably. Then not only did they fail to deliver hardly ANY good games on it, they deliberately WITHHELD good games from being released here until the fans practically went to war over it.

I've preferred Nintendo for a long time, but after that, I'm skipping them until they prove to me I can trust them again.

I'll probably just wait for wither the price to drop some or for me to come across some extra cash. I like Nintendo's games along with their consoles, so I'll probably get it eventually. I'll definitely get it though if some new iterations to my favorite old series come out on it, such as a new Baten Kaitos, Tales game, Custom Robo or a new F-Zero. Those are some of my favorite series, and I'd really love to see a new iteration of any of them come out for a Nintendo console in the US.

A new Harvest Moon game certainly wouldn't hurt. I love me some Harvest Moon.

Ehhh, kind of repetitive after awhile though. Maybe if they added in some progression or customization elements I would say it has lasting appeal.

They already have me, the Wii was the first Nintendo console I haven't owned, I really don't like motion controls, gaming is something I do to relax on the couch.
The Wii U has interesting controls without me having to leave the couch and Pikmin 3, a new starfox and i'd be a first dayer

5 or more games that I am interested in playing.

It needs a new F-Zero. It really needs a new F-Zero for me to buy it.

Earthbound would also help.

I'll get one anyway cause the tablet looks awesome and there will be some great games on it eventually. When the there are games I want for it, that's when I will get one. Also, new F-Zero, been too damn long.

No chance really, I bought the Wii and figured out that me and Nintendo weren't much of a match anymore.

This! A thousand times this! I need more Harvest Moon in my life, I'm collecting all the Harvest Moon games and I want more that are like Harvest Moon Animal Parade. Also more Rune Factory!

I'm already going to be grabbing one early on. Probably after the day-one buyers have experienced their console-killing bugs and the not-quite-as-death prone ones are out. I know I'm going to get a Wii-U because I know it'll have the exclusive games on it that I want. What I'm hoping to see though...

*A true remake of Super Mario Brothers 1 through 3 as in, all three on one disc which starts at one and continues on until you beat 3. Speaking of Super Mario...

*New Super Mario RPG. Not necessarily a new Paper Mario but some new home-console Mario RPG

*Region Free (probably not going to get but I will continue to hope)

Kirby's Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns and, New Super Mario Bros Wii. They all control like an NES game and require no movements more complex than a quick downward jerk of the controller. Other M is another that controls like an NES game until you use 1st-person mode (aim Wii-mo at TV). I haven't encountered any 'flail like a moron' mini-games in Mario Party 9 yet but there are a couple of gyroscopic-controlled ones (turn wii-mo instead of using the control cross). That's all I've got.

The same thing as every other console: good games. I would need a few more than the other consoles because that controller just looks uncomfortable.

Have a good launch title that can't be played on another system. I mean come on Nintendo, look at how well thats been working out for you over the years.

The only great Wii game to get on launch: Twilight Princess, which you can play on the Gamecube.
The only great 3DS game to get on launch: Super Street Fighter IV which you can play on PS3 and 360.

Give us something that makes the thing sell well on day one, when the 3DS came out, not everyone was rushing out to buy one like they did with the Wii because there weren't any games. Remember Nintendo! GAMES!

It would have to totally change the culture that has been dominate at Nintendo since the N64. When the industry went with CDs Nintendo stayed with cartridges to their detriment and ended up in last place largely ignored by third parties. When the industry moved to DVDs Nintendo chose proprietary mini discs and wound up in last place largely ignored by third parties. Most recently after being largely irrelevant in the console market for a decade Nintendo totally abandoned the core market to cater to the casual market and while financially successful they were still largely ignored by third parties except when it came to sub par shovelware titles.

The bottom line is Nintendo went from using old technology to using old technology with a gimmick strapped to it. If they would simply get with the times and ditch the gimmicks I might consider getting a Nintendo home console.

Honestly, unless they're going to ditch the tablet controller, or at least the lame augmented reality features and start making titles that don't endlessly ape their N64 titles with little regard to what made them enjoyable to begin with, I don't think there's anything they could do to get me to buy one. I'm simply not the sort of consumer Nintendo is after anymore.

To be a must-have console, it needs to have enough must-have games. If it does not have enough must-have games, it is not a must-have console. QED.

What are must-have games? I dunno, I'm mainly talking new IP, because I'm kinda done with Zelda and Mario. Some good RPG's would be nice. Let's start there.

Have it be released? I will get it sooner or later, probably not at release though. Also Super Smash Bros.

I wouldn't mind getting the console if it had some REALLY epic games on it. And I mean seriously epic. Something that Nintendo hasn't seen in a while.

I'm talking the old Final Fantasy's epic. (Pre-X) I'm talking MGS epic. I'm talking Xenogears epic. Shadow of the Colossus epic. None of this Zelda, Mario, Sonic shit that NEEDS TO DIE.

I'm not so much bummed about the hardware, although I do feel that they reaaaally could do better by it, But I can get over that. I just can't see any reason to buy the damn thing because it's essentially a screen with some buttons surrounding it that can only be described as a Wii Emulator.

If a shiny new IP comes out, that is absolutely ground-breakingly good (I'm looking at you Japan) then sure I'll go for it. I'm as I mentioned before, I'm banking on a startling good RPG/JRPG to really launch this thing.

BUT, it really doesn't seem likely, I'm just hopin'

Well, Operation Rainfall seems to be proving that Nintendo is moving in the right direction in terms of hosting JRPGs on their systems, so we could likely see an epic launch RPG. Hell, Xenoblade alone has convinced me that the original Wii isn't dead as a system. I really hope that trend continues with the other two games, and that it ends up staying consistent with the Wii U once the new generation rolls around.

Other than that, I'll probably buy it for Zelda, Metroid, and Super Smash Bros. like I always do, and then pick up any of the other interesting stuff along the way.

New exclusive games that I actually want to play, ditch the stupid motion controls as the main form of playing (motion is fine for party games but it sucks for anything else) and stop releasing the same games every year. So yeah change there whole marketing strategy basically so I'm probably not getting one unless Sony are complete arsehats with the PS4

More quality control over shovelware.

Specs that are competitive with next gen hardware, not this current gen.

My answer for this is the same as would be if you had asked what it would take for me to buy the Wii. They would need to produce more than two or three games that I would really want to play before I even considered buying one.

Never been a fan of Nintendo games or consoles ever. Never have bought one and never well. Mostly because they concentrate on Mario, everything is Mario + (add gimmick idea) whether sport, racing etc etc. I know he is their mascot, but seriously they need some thing more.

They announced Pikmin 3 and it will release at, or shortly after, launch.

Don't know about a 2D Mario game yet, but they do have three-ish at E3 to be revealed (whether a few are for 3DS or Wii, I don't know).

I will buy one if I have the money, I may just wait till Christmas and get one as a gift :P

This year I am getting a great Gaming PC, finishing my backlog of games and getting a Wii U. I am excited XD
