Wii U, Xbox one, PS4 reviews

Postby bengalhoel » January 10th, 2017, 10:53 pm

I respect your opinion because this is your review site, but I would be pissed if I bought a console based purely on your reviews. The Wii U , if judged by your grades, seems to be the best new console. That is completely false. It is by far the worst of the 3 and if not for 3 or 4 games, it would be useless.

Well if I could only keep one of the three, the Wii U would be a slam-dunk. And I suspect that going into the future the Wii U will be far more desirable than the PS4 or XB1. What does everybody else think?

Honestly, I think that based on your grading system that it makes sense for the Wii U to score higher on "Collectability " then the other consoles... It didn't actually score much better (in many cases it was worse) than the XB1 and the PS4. While the Wii U doesn't have a large library of games it seems tailored towards being a big collector's item in the future- it has the Amiibos which is something else to collect entirely or can accompany your console, it has a small selection of AAA titles, and then a pool of hidden gems. The console also didn't sell that well and a lot of the physical releases had low production runs (even official Nintendo titles).

The XB1 and the PS4 are not that collectible and despite having a wider variety of games may not offer much (especially the XB1) after the life cycle of the console ends... Who knows though...

The Wii U is not a good console by any stretch of the imagination. The PS4 and Xbox One aren't particularly interesting (they're basically scaled down PCs) but they are competent in fundamental ways that the Wii U isn't. Do not buy a Wii U in 2017 unless you are a collector trying to pre-empt the market. If you are not a collector but simply a person who likes to play games, buy one of the others. Or, even better, a PC.

One thing the Wii U has that its competitors arguably do not is an excellent, varied library of first- and second-party exclusive games. The majority of Wii U titles published by Nintendo themselves are at the very least worth playing. The best retail titles on PS4 and especially the Xbox One tend to be multiplatform: just Google "best ps4 games" or "best xbox one games" to see what I mean. Admittedly, the relative lack of third party support is glaring and was a huge factor in the Wii U ultimately being a flop, but that doesn't diminish the quality of the games it actually has.
