My wife had the same thought, and she extended it to the ipad that the school issued to our son. She doesn't like him using it too much and I feel like we don't let him use it enough. Until about a year ago, we hadn't had a video game console in the house and even then we bought a Wii. (No, that isn't missing a U.) I feel like his future is going to have a lot of tech in it - barring some odd WW3 scenario - so the more experience he has with it the better.


I support this parenting decision!

Hopefully they sell them. Problem with the WiiU is you can't replace the gamepad. I tell my kids all the time be careful with it cause if it breaks no more WiiU. I suppose I could find one on ebay or something but still.

I bet they will and there will probably be different colors and button configurations.

Looks cool. I'm sure I'll get it. Nintendo consoles are the only consoles I've cared about since I started gaming on my PC years ago, so it's kind of a given that I'll get one eventually.

I'm kinda confused by the online stories about Super Mario Odyssey.

Is there a true multiplayer game now or is it still just a co-op mode?

Also, can we get this moved to the VG subforum, please?

Not a multiplayer game unless you count the second player controlling Cappy. You can however hide balloons in worlds for others to find.

Carrying case

Pricey, but awesome.

Pro Controller is a must.

I don't have any additional charging stand or anything else. My joy cons have never run out of battery because I almost always leave them attached to the console itself.

I bought a second dock, a pro controller, a wired imitation pro controller and I know I got an SD card but haven't needed it yet.

I think those are good. How's the wired controller? I don't think I've used one of those in 15 years.

I haven't tried the wired controller myself but the kids have and haven't complained. Even with the wireless they sit 2 feet from the TV I'm forever telling them to back up.

The 1st party wired 360 controller was great. I love not having to worry about battery level.

I remember being flabbergasted when Xbox had a wired controller for the 360. I know a lot of people liked it though.

I'm guessing that'll be the last 1st party wired controller ever. I'd buy a great wired controller for a new console if they existed.

I just have a short USB cable plugged into the front of my console that charges my controllers when I'm not playing. It has never been a problem.

I got so close to winning one of these yesterday. You know the stacker game in arcades? I was able to get the line all the way to the top twice but just couldn't land it. Ugh.

This is crazy nice for $15. Great materials, solid build.
