It's a really unique console. I'd have to say, I have had consoles in my life (Both Wii, Xbox and PS3) and all of them don't compare to the Wii U's uniqueness. It really brings out the fun in gaming without the extra cost. But, there's a catch. With 8 GB of memory on the normal white Wii U, it feels like you're being busted in the balls. There is a PS3 that costs the same that comes with Assassin's Creed 3 and has 500 GB of storage space. So, the Wii U with 8 GB of memory, over 500 GB on a PS3 with free online and comes with a game. Your choice. Overall, really nice console.
