Surprising, looking at the UK charts every week on EG and there's no Wii U exclusives in the top 40.

I guess the UK are waiting for the 3D/kart Mario titles.

yet overall europe numbers are good. Which speaks more to the diminishing importance of uk ( not gone just diminishing) = and the rise of places like france,spain, and the rest of europe.

hmmm. i quite want a Wii U despite there not being many games worth playing yet - mainly to play skyward sword and Super Mario Galaxy 2 on big screen

Do we reckon that they will drop the price a la 3DS?

How about a poll CVG?

I think they would be up there, if they where cheaper and at the same price as the others.

Actually, you could save yourself a bundle if you have a meaty PC and run Dolphin - you can play Wii games from the disc in glorious HD - GameCube games too.

SMG in HD is a sight to behold.

A wii u costs less than a rig good enough to run wii games at max settings

But if you already have the rig, you'd be saving yourself the cost of a Wii.

That was my point.

..and that's better than Wii. Better than Wii settings.
