Tesco are doing the Wii U 8GB Basic package for just £99 right now! That means you should probably get one. If you love games, you'll get one. £99 is the perfect price for The Second Console In Your Home... and that's exactly what the Wii U wants to be. It doesn't have third-party games (but that's not a problem), or a decent YouTube capture policy, but what it does have is a smorgasbord of Nintendo excellence, two of the finest multiplayer titles of new-gen, and it has Bayonetta 2.
And it'll have new Zelda, new Star Fox, new Xenoblade, and a host of other things too this year.
Once upon a time, I too felt that the Wii U did not deserve my time or money. I was so very wrong. Now I find myself sitting on a throne made from the Amiibo I drunkenly pre-ordered and forgot about, playing some of the best games currently available.
