Hey, so I have been thinking pretty hard about getting a Wii U, but I would only be getting it mainly for Xenoblade Chronicles X (and ill probably get some other games for it as-well..but lets exclude that for the moment)

Do you guys think it would be worth it for Xenoblade X?

Has anyone else here ever bought a console for just one game here; was it worth it?

I remember when I was younger I actually got my Vita mainly to play P4 Golden when it was first released! I was pretty satisfied with the purchase because alot of cool niche titles came out for the Vita.

My friend got an Xbox One just to play Destiny, but he got the Halo Master Chief edition to make it a little more worth it. He hasn't bought a game since

I just rent them long enough to beat the game. Then I go back to my PC.

Well, both console and game were used, but I bought a Dreamcast just for Soul Calibur. Definitely worth it.

I bought my PlayStation 4 for different games, not only one - however, in fact, this is where I found Crunchyroll (app), use Spotify, etc too

I bought a 3DS to see why people were making such a big deal out of Legend of Zelda. I ended up buying Pokemon X and White 2 for it as well.

Not going to lie i bought a 3DS XL just so i could play Pokemon X i haven't bought any other games for it myself i did get the newer remake of Ruby as a gift but a key fact in my choice was that all my older DS games could be played on the 3DS XL.

Sounds like serious money burning.

Try renting instead if you have the option

I actually did this. I picked up WiiU for Xenblade Chronicles X. And honeslty...... yeah, mostly feel like it was worth it- that game kept me busy for quite a while and there's still stuff to do that I havent gotten around to yet.
I did recently pick up Bayonetta 2 though, which is freaking awesome and I'll be getting Twlight Princess soon, so overall I feel like I'm getting my money's worth.

I have a 3 game minimum rule before I go out and buy a new console, for the Wii-U I those games are Bayonetta 2, Xenoblade Chronicles X & The Legend of Zelda Wii-U. I'll probably pick up the system with the first two games about a month before Zelda comes out.

I bought the WiiU just for XCX and for a to extent FE X SMT. Was going to sell it after that but unlike my PS3 the CR app actually works.

You can probably find a used WiiU for a decent price, why not go for it. At this point in the console life cycle buying one for one game makes decent sense, and you can always browse other titles on offer. I rather enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles X and it's certainly well worth playing, so I'd suggest going for it.

I seem to recall doing something similar with the XBox and Halo 2.

bought my xbone for da:i, mind you I do have a few games for it now. da wasn't even out when I bought the system, it just sat there for two months collecting dust before the game was released.
I didn't even know what games were out for the ps4 when I bought it, I just wandered into eb one day and told the guy to sell me something. its my crunchyroll machine for the most part. I like back ground noise when ive got a game on the computer going haha.

I've bought a ps3 solely to play Tales of Xillia on it. I still have that copy and like 3-4 other Tales games.
