Off-TV play via the Wii U GamePad and backward compatibility with Wii are among Matt Peckham’s 10 reasons to pick up a Wii U over PS4 or Xbox One this holiday season. His opinion article over at TIME Tech is one of seemingly few that shed a positive light on the Wii U:
“The Wii U doesn’t have quite as many run-out-and-buy games as we kick off its second year, but its best and brightest in 2013 make the competition’s next-gen roster look a little like the bullets Hugo Weaving fires at Keanu Reeves during the Matrix‘s denouement. That, and the system’s 2014 lineup isn’t messing around, with exclusives I wouldn’t miss for a game console 10 times as powerful. This is why, if I had to choose between the PS4, Wii U and Xbox One today, no question about it…
I’d pick the Wii U.”
It’s rather refreshing after the doom and gloom predictions that have been assaulting the Wii U since only a few months after its release. Even so, Peckham is careful to point out the system’s faults to show that it’s far from perfect. Check out the article here and let us know what you think.
