Blog Poll #34 asked, "Wii U: What Are You Buying?"
The choices were:
-Wii U 8 GB Basic (White)
-Wii U 32 GB Deluxe (Black)
-Want It for a Christmas or Birthday Gift
-Waiting for a Price Drop
-Don't Want It
We had a very solid 251 votes...here is how it broke down:
-Don't Plan to Buy: 98 Votes, 39%
-Wii U 32 GB Deluxe: 55 Votes, 21%
-Want it for Christmas or a Birthday Gift: 48 Votes, 19%
-Waiting for a Price Drop: 40 Votes, 15%
-Wii U 8 GB Basic 10 Votes, 3%
I realized a potential flaw in the selections shortly after creating the poll, but once someone has voted it is all or nothing...you can't go in and "edit" choices. Ideally folks would pick the choice that is most likely what they will do, however some could misinterpret "Don't Plan to Buy" for "it'll be a gift etc." That may or may not have been the case, but I certainly didn't expect that to out weigh "Want it for a Christmas or Birthday Gift."
Nonetheless, that is how things panned out. It looks like the vast majority of you (roughly 153 Voters) are either already on board with the Wii U, hoping to get it shortly, or are anxiously awaiting to be surprised with it or wind up with the necessary fundage to bring one home.
I have to say I've enjoyed mine, despite only logging around 3-4 hours of play time...I've been that busy and I really am focusing on the Giants playthrough.
Thanks to everyone who voted! If you are reading this you can add or follow me on Miiverse by searching for...
You guessed it...
I'm not on much and my internet connection failed with the Wii, so how well I pan out on Miiverse remains to be seen...I'm not on much, but feel free to follow me or add me etc.
