Do you own or want a Wii U?

If not, why is that?

Recently Nintendo posted their financial figures, and once again -- it's not looking good for the Wii U. Their goal was to sell roughly 9 million units for the year, but revised projections put them at 3.6 million for the year. That's...not great.

We've spoken at length about how Nintendo isn't supporting the Wii U as much as they should, and third parties aren't either, but let's stop thinking about all that for a second and break it down to the rawest source.

Do you own a Wii U?

 

Personally, I picked one up day one. Not just because it was my job to review games, but because I would have picked it up anyway just to play New Super Mario Bros. U. Beyond that the Wii U had a decent launch in my mind, with Nintendo Land lighting up parties at my house, a solid port of Mighty Switch Force!, and the best version of Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed.

That's all it really needed at the time to sell me, and the GamePad has since become my favorite controller outside of the DualShock 4 -- possibly my favorite controller ever. At this point I have a solid stable of games to play both new and old, and I don't think I'll ever get tired of the GamePad, to the point where I even hope Nintendo brings it back for the next generation.

But obviously, not everyone is enjoying the Wii U as much as I am. The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One are poised to blow past it any month now (if they haven't already in certain regions), and at the end of the day, people aren't buying them.

So if you haven't picked one up yet, let us know in the comments why that is!
