Recently, gamers have been turning away from their Wiis, and even other consoles, in exchange for their portable, mobile systems, like the 3DS. This is partially due to the sheer awesomeness and high definition graphics that make the 3DS a better option than other systems, even if you are stuck in your house. However, according to Team Ninja(Ninja Gaiden series), the Wii U will change all of this. Their reasoning is the varying points of ability that come with the Wii U, compared to the style in which one point is focused on and the others suffer as a result. As the Wii U has many features that are special to it, it will begin to draw gamers away from their personal screens onto their family screen, or at least the larger screen in their room, and console gaming shall reign again as king! I’m certainly going to be setting my 3DS down for a while when the Wii U comes out! What would it take to draw you away from your 3DS?
