      Gathering money to buy Wii U XD

      Funny thing is that only Japan do not have Assassin Creed in their top sellers

    • Have you decided on your launch games yet? Nintendo and Ubisoft are putting out most of the unique games it seems.

    • @veljkogaloo:disqus : Your comment is funny because Assassin’s Creed 3 has not been released in Japan yet LOL! It won’t be out there until November 15th. 🙂

    • Fahd Al Zarooni

      Yep, New Super Mario Bros.U, Ninja Gaiden 3 XD

    • Nice! No other Wii U-exclusives you’re looking at? I think ZombiU and Scribblenauts Unlimited look amazing too.

    • Fahd Al Zarooni

      Actually instead I am thinking of Buying Black Ops II for PS3 instead and I know there is a Wii U version as well, but I am more use to PS3 console, I will probably wait till they make they make Red Wii U Limited Edition 27th Mario anniversary, cause last time I got Wii early and the only good launch was DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 2 & Zelda Twilight Princess, If I buy it now the only game worth buying is New Super Mario Bros.U, for me.
