I Bought A Wii U In 2021…Here's Why

I Bought A Wii U In 2021…Here's Why

The Wii U has pretty much been forgotten about after the massive success of the Switch along with many of the big Wii U titles being ported over, however due to several things around the system it looks like it’s shaping up to be a solid collectors item over the next couple of years.

    Bought one when they were new but also bought a new one just a few weeks ago. Well traded. I traded my 3ds for a Wii u and spongebob rehydrated for switch. So no games for Wii u yet but about to mod it.

    You bought a wii u in 2021 bec you want a videos for your channel and you have money.

  3. TBH_Mario on December 23, 2021 at 1:13 pm

    Didn’t have Splatoon in the bundle, 0/10 wouldn’t try again

  4. SHONE THE GAMER on December 23, 2021 at 1:13 pm

    I bought one this year at a goodwill for the complete system and gamepad for 16 dollers and it included mario kart 8 and with pikman 3 and star fox and many more
    Stuff

  5. Skeleton-productions124 on December 23, 2021 at 1:14 pm

    I got one in 2020

  6. Nick Jones on December 23, 2021 at 1:16 pm

    The battery on the Wii U Pro controller would last EIGHTY hours. Best controller battery life we’ve ever had.

  7. Jac Bryan Dimaculangan on December 23, 2021 at 1:16 pm

    even if mos guys care the switch, remember that there isn’t a switch without the wii u

  8. Brandon Musolino on December 23, 2021 at 1:16 pm

    Any one have any tips for aftermarket Gamepad batteries? Mine is on the way out and the third-party battery market looks like a minefield.

  9. Justin Magee on December 23, 2021 at 1:17 pm

    Lol I just ordered a ps3, ps vita, and wii u to mod

  10. Richard Britain on December 23, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    The WiiU is brilliant. Most who trash it never actually had one. To me it has many points that are still better than the Switch. Better dock. Camera included. Free online play. Mic included. Simple switch from handheld to TV play. MiVerse. As powerful as the Switch ( ie BOTW etc).

  11. XxZxZ on December 23, 2021 at 1:21 pm

    honestly why do so many people hate wii u

  12. Vinny Bruce on December 23, 2021 at 1:21 pm

    I have 3 wii U’s two in a storage and currently have on I see them supremely over $1500

  13. TwiZteD_SiTh on December 23, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    The Wii U is hands down the WORST console Nintendo’s ever released 🤣 they would be bankrupt and outta business without the Switch.

  14. TheWipal on December 23, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    I remember selling god of war on vita for like 4 times what i got it for, a little bid war happened and the dude offered to show up asap so im like aight, i could have probably sold it for alotttt more now but mah, that money served well for my manga addiction lmaooo

  15. Sarah Glenn on December 23, 2021 at 1:25 pm

    Can these be played without being connected to the TV? Only reason I want to get a wii u is for the older Zelda games but do you have to have it connected to wires and the console to beable to play any of the games ?

  16. SHONE THE GAMER on December 23, 2021 at 1:27 pm

    Cool thing it all works

  17. velvetpilot2008 on December 23, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    I went on a Wii U buying spree. I got two (Basic 8GB set) and a brand new Smash/Splat 32GB bundle which I got both for under $250. I love this freaking system.

  18. France Tillman on December 23, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    I have the Zelda edition and can’t part with it.

  19. toysRus kid on December 23, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Last mounth I asked my mom for a Wii U and she said she would get it for me next mounth for my birthday and when people say how good the Wii U was a failure it looks BEAUTIFUL. But the most thing I like is the graphics and you can play wii games. In July 2021 I got a wii I love it and I love you can play the games on it unablivable

  20. NODE on December 23, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Today I fixed my game pad. I’m very happy that I can play some classics now.

  21. Matthew Williams on December 23, 2021 at 1:32 pm

    I want one so much

  22. cyniclismic on December 23, 2021 at 1:34 pm

    I’ve enjoyed Minecraft on the Wii u more than in any other platform tbh, fun memories as well

  23. Jeffy poll on December 23, 2021 at 1:37 pm

    Impossible wii u sold out there’s none of them in the world only on eBay

  24. TucBroder on December 23, 2021 at 1:38 pm

    I own a Wii U, alongside a Pro Controller… I always avoid the game pad if I can.

  25. TECHNOLOGIC HMM on December 23, 2021 at 1:39 pm

  28. djexclusivee on December 23, 2021 at 1:43 pm

    Can I play/look up family in other parts of country?

  29. JeoN on December 23, 2021 at 1:44 pm

    Should’ve seen this before buying one on eBay without the gamepad 🤦🏻‍♂️

  30. LucaWeatherDude _ on December 23, 2021 at 1:44 pm

    I’m asking for one for christmas. Honestly, this is my most favorite console of all time.

  31. Arnaud V. on December 23, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    It’s now 70€ in France, game are still cheap I will say it’s a perfect system for grown kids.

  32. RandomMonkey on December 23, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    I sold my 2ds a few years back since I never got fully into it. Do yall think I should try buying a 2ds or 3ds off of offerup and getting some games cheap

  33. freebie on December 23, 2021 at 1:46 pm

    I might get a wii u. Can you use the wii remote with it? I like the blue cases the games come in.

  34. dadush4 on December 23, 2021 at 1:47 pm

    100€ for wii u console, game pad, 4 games, 3 controllers.
    Now I can play gamecube, wii and wii u games on 1 console with a hdmi cable.

    Best deal ever.

  35. RetroNox on December 23, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    Sold complete set no regrets

  36. Hektor M on December 23, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    Glad I’ve held onto my wii U wind waker Edition.

  37. Fun with Braedyn on December 23, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    I have one and still play it I’m thinking about selling it and buying a Nintendo switch

  38. CambioJoe on December 23, 2021 at 1:51 pm

    I got one a few months ago almost still new on Craigslist for $100, homebrewed it, put 128gb as card and a usb hard drive and loaded it with tons of games and I absolutely love it

  39. Ceterum Gaming on December 23, 2021 at 1:52 pm

    I haven’t seen games for the Wii U in probably the past 8 years, aside from the games I already have still

  40. Ruben Camps on December 23, 2021 at 1:54 pm

    Gonna buy one just for Xenoblade X

  41. SHONE THE GAMER on December 23, 2021 at 1:55 pm

    Also boaght a snes classic edition console complete over at goodwill. Sometimes goodwill and value village get a lot of Nintendo stuff like wiis and game cubes including sometimes you come across very good stuff at these places.

  42. warcraft toad on December 23, 2021 at 1:57 pm

    i bought one for 175$ at gamestop

    it was a steal 😯

  43. Terri Jenna on December 23, 2021 at 1:58 pm

    I bought it is 2012 still have it

  44. Ramon Colon on December 23, 2021 at 1:59 pm

    Looks like the Wii U is like the Dreamcast. They both failed but very fun to play with

  45. Cum & Cock productions on December 23, 2021 at 1:59 pm

    The homebrew for wii u is really cool

  46. Le Cobra on December 23, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    Real reason > CFW.

  47. VizraxAxxa on December 23, 2021 at 2:03 pm

  48. lastbriteSon on December 23, 2021 at 2:03 pm

    Im currently playing botw on it, never finished the game, really enjoy my time with it. Might pick up some other first party titles, like yoshi wooly and mario 3d world

  49. 2 pro kings on December 23, 2021 at 2:05 pm

    I geht one in 2015

  50. D Przeesy on December 23, 2021 at 2:08 pm

    I remember getting the way you and I only didn’t play it more back in the day because no one else had one. I play the switch now and I realize the genius that they were onto with the WIIU but just didn’t have the right idea yet
