    Well, until I'll show you the Wii U features. Could someone explain if those features are valid reasons to spend 100 or 200 bucks more than the Wii U on a PS4 or Xbone console?
    What you think?

    No feature is worth that t' me, but to the next gamer, especially one who ain't a budget gamer, it very well might be. If someone wants a media center and is a Microsod fan (and also feels like screwing themselves over) they very well might believe that extra price is worth the features. insert similar generic argument for ps4 here

    Also exclusives, the universal "feature" for which most consoles are purchased.

    Well, as you said some budget gamers are the people that believe whatever Microsoft or Sony presents, if they show them a console with hot cakes, they'll buy it by the hot cakes wherever are good or not. And they won change their opinions even Nintendo shows better value features. Take for example the graphics, the mayority of them believe that the Xbone/ps4 graphics are astounding realistic and think the Wii U is last-gen that cannot match those graphics, but this faq is not valid anymore. The xbone/ps4 graphics are a little bit better, BUT YOU WON SEE A HUGE DIFFERENCE. If not check this out these video comparisons.





    As you see, there isn't a huge difference. Someone could say that's beacause Assassin's Creed 4 is a first launch title and doesn't take the full horsepower potential and with future titles we'll see the real difference. But remember, the Wii U has untapped horsepower not released yet, so by the time the developers will squeeze it to its limits too. At the end we don't see the huge difference as expected, so the difference will be marked by other features. The console that has the best features for your value is the console that will win this generation...

    Perception is everything. To some, the U is a ripoff whereas the other consoles are better priced. Opinion will sway someone more than fact, even when said fact is absolute truth (one console being a better value than the other is not absolute truth, mind you).

    Maximum graphical capabilities < RAM and such

    On that note, your argument usin' AC:IV is actually invalid. Environmental physics and frame rate is the highlight difference between last gen and this gen AC:IV releases, not scaled-up graphics. The former is quite nice t' have in single player, while the latter is a huge problem for both single and multiplayer. The PS4 and XBone AC:IV ports are gonna be wholly superior to the U release, (completely unused) Gamepad be damned.

    Well. here we go:

    Wii U features

    Wii U Gamepad: The Wii U features are based on the Wii U gamepad that is the console's core, it comes fully integrated and it's designed to play like a popular tablet, but with more features like the touchpad/tv screen interaction, the motion control gyroscope, the camera, the speakers, microphone and the NFC untapped tech. With the combination of those features the developers can create deeper experiences that can be replicated well on other consoles.
    Apps: The Wii U has its variety of apps like the other consoles, but Nintendo has enormous experience creating special apps that pleases the gamers like the Miiverse, the wara wara plaza, TVii, Wii Fit U, etc... Also, the third-party apps like Netfix, Hulu, Amazon, and the gaming apps like Uplay.
    Wii U chat: You can chat using this app in video conferences around the world, you can't chat and play a game at the same time if this game doesn't support that function, but every time you can pause the game using the home button and launch the chat or your favorite app and later continue playing a game.
    Remote play: As you know you can play games that support this feature directly on your gamepad and leave the TV for your mom or dad, or play it as a second screen. Also, using your gamepad to control your TV.
    Wiimote/nunchuck, classic controllers support: As you see the Wii U supports the Wii controllers, Wii U Pro controller, Wii Fit, etc. Also, games that support a specific control.
    Retro-compatibillity: The Wii U plays all the Wii games offering a good upgrade value, also in the future Nintendo plans to introduce an upscaler system that improves the Wii games resolution and aspect.
    Virtual console games: Another good feature, play your favorite old school console games inclusive on your gamepad.
    Indie games: The Wii U has a good library of Indie games that is expanding by 2014.
    Exclusive Games: The Wii U has the classic exclusive games by Nintendo like Smash Brothers, Mario, Metroid and Zelda. Also, second-party exclusives like Bayoneta 2, Xenoblade project and many more in development.

    We will continue next...

    I am enjoying both my PS4 and Xb1. I am really digging the voice control and smartglass of the XB1. Especially with Dead Rising 3. It's awesome using my tablet to call in an air strike or call in back up and to actually yell at the psychos in DR3 to distract them. With the PS4, I am enjoying the games I got with it (AC4, Killzone, NFS:R) but the PS4 doesn't have as many features as the XB1 but that doesn't bother me because I'd rather play the game than play with the features. I am fortunate enough to be able to afford them even at their high price points but if I had to choose, I'd probably go with the PS4 just because the exclusives. That's also the reason I bought both. So I can play any game I want. I don't care about graphics or what have you. My PC trumps them easily. I want to have fun and enjoy myself.

    Good point my friend, but in my case even having the money to buy those consoles I won't do it, because these features are irrelevant for me, as you say the games are the greatest point to buy a video game console, if I want to see movies I use the Bluray-Player or my cable box, TV box or whatever I have. Today the multifunctional devices are very popular, but you don't need them. I'm very pleased with the Wii U features that gives you a level of game immersion that no other console or device brings. I have a High-end PC too, but I'm feel tired by the classic way you play your games on it (you know mouse, keyboard, joystick, gamepad, etc...), and the graphics that are far better than xbone/ps4 don't attracts me to play again, even the next-gen graphics effects like particle physics or tessellation didn't. Only if those consoles brings truly CGI graphics that I could say "WoW these graphics are awesome", I'll think to buy one. But this will never happen in this generation, probably after 8 or 10 years. That is why I said, if an AAA title appears on PC and Wii U, I always prefer the Wii U version for the same reason.
