Honestly that would be my motivation for buying a Wii U as well, XenoBlade and maybe Bayonetta 2. But with the NX around the corner, I'm just gonna wait for a price drop or see how the new system is and if its backwards compatible.

wii=zelda machine, maybe mario kart if you're ten and your parents say violent games are bad.
wii u=no (new) zelda, so don't have one, but once that changes I'll get it.

and smash bros for drunken video game nights. because adulting.

so yes, getting it for one game is valid, I have done it and will do it again.

I've been trying to convince myself to buy a 3ds for years just to play Pokemon and Zelda. I always have it in my cart, stare at the price for what seems like an eternity, then remove it from my cart. And then repeat the process a few months later.

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.


Xenoblade isn't that good.

Where the heck do you rent a system. I wanted to get a xbox one but the only exclusive that i want to play on it is Forza which is not worth $299

I got my Ps3 JUST to play Saints row 3, so i can understand but i was upgrading from a ps2 this game just gave me a reason.

I got my first 3DS just for Ocarina of Time since it was one of my favorite games on the N64 as a kid and I ended up buying the Ocarina of Time edition 3DS. I played the game for a while but didn't beat it then didn't use the 3DS anymore at all for around a year then bought the new 3DS. I bought some games on it and played it again but ended up just buying games on it and never playing them (literally bought games and downloaded them but never even opened the game). I'm not really sure if it was worth it since I never even play them anymore and probably put less than 50 hours in total in both 3DS's.

The Nintendo consoles actually have that effect on me. An example I only wanted a Nintendo 3DSXL for Animal Crossing. For the longest time I just played Animal Crossing and eventually I got Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Hatsune Miku. Same goes to both the Wii and the Wii-U. Bought them each when Super Smash Brother came out for them.

Screw that. Maybe I'll get the next generation but for now I'm sticking to PC.

It costs a lot of money to do that, definitely better to wait longer into the console's lifespan to see what the console really has to offer.
That being said, I mainly got my WiiU because of Splatoon - only to be disappointed by connection issues that prevent me from playing it online, but hey at least the single player mode is fun.
It makes me glad by extension I also wanted to get Smash - and then the slippery slope of getting more games began.

It can all start with just 1 game...

I bought my 3DS only to play Pokemon Y and Bravely Default, and to this day I regret nothing. Nintendo has the best exclusives for sure, but buying a Wii U right now while waiting for the NX is pointless, I'll wait for a price drop to get it and play Xenoblade Chronicles and Bayonetta.

As for everything else that is not by Nintendo, I don't care if it's a PS4, Xbox or PC. Arguments like the console wars and PC Master Race don't mean shit to me as long as I can play the games. I'm perfectly happy with my PS4 for most of my games and a laptop to play games that don't require a lot of power, mostly traditional RPGs like Ys.
