Wii U Interest Jumps Post E3 Empty

A recent study commissioned by IHS and Gamer Network has shown a significant increase in the number of consumers that plan to purchase a Wii U in the wake of E3 2014.

Approximately one thousand gamers were surveyed before and after the show about their purchasing intentions for both systems and upcoming games, and Nintendo's home console saw the greatest increase in interest after its presentation and announcements. The percentage of people intending to buy a Wii U after the show matched that of people who expressed interest in purchasing an Xbox One, while interest in the PlayStation 4 fell below 30%.

The survey also asked participants about their interest in the show's featured games, citing that both Destiny and Batman: Arkham Knight were the two games that garnered the most interest from participants, while other AAA titles including Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Battlefield Hardline fell behind.

According to the survey, system sellers are no longer a factor in the success of a console during the holiday season. Rather, it's the system's library and value proposition that can be relied on to move consoles off of store shelves. "Although there are other exclusive titles coming in 2014 already available, none hold the influence that these leading titles have in terms of selling hardware, with the exception of Mario Kart 8 for Wii U," cites the report. "As a result, the success of console sales this holiday season will depend more heavily on total value and content proposition including exclusive content offered by multi-platform games rather than a single, very influential system-selling exclusive. This factor will impact the marketing strategies of he platform holders as we move into 2014's main shopping season."

I've had mine since launch, first console I pre ordered, the 3DS I got after the price drop, the Vita was 2 years after release when I bought it. I have never dropped a sizeable chunk of change ($410 in this case) to get a console at launch. The only games I got near launch were Nintendo Land (bundled with the 32GB Model) and New Super Mario Bros U which I pre-ordered with the system If that wasn't released at launch I would not have pre ordered the system. I did get Mighty Switch Force HD and a few of the VC games that were on sale for 30 cents. I got Earthbound last year and the first Physical game I bought since then was Mario Kart 8. Nintendo seems to be a slow burner with their systems in recent years. With the 3DS, It wasn't until Super Mario 3D Land was coming out and Ocarina of Time 3D was out that I jumped on that. Now that games are coming out for it, solid looking titles already out like MK8 and Mario 3D World plus with Smash Bros as well it's a solid option. 2012, not so much. Even when the PS4 and Xbox One came out A few solid games were out for the WIi U, plus it was cheaper. I still haven't gotten either one of those, EA UFC is the reason I will get one, and both eventually. But 500 bucks is not financially responsible for me at the present time. I have a friend who did get the Xbox One at Launch, he's not a hardcore gamer wither, nor does he even use the Kinect. I waited, and I'm glad I did. Microsoft released the it without the Kinect.

I'll probably get one if it gets another price drop or if it gets on offer around Christmas time.
