Why I'm Tempted To Ditch The Vita And Grab A Wii U
I've had the PlayStation Vita since launch. I haven't owned a Nintendo console since the SNES. Yeah, you read that right.
There are a variety of reasons why I haven't owned a Nintendo system for a long time (there was my long-time RPG fascination, for instance) and to be quite frank, I've outgrown the brand. People can try to keep saying Nintendo caters to everyone but we all know that isn't true. They have a particular demographic in mind, and it ain't me.
That being said, I'm actually intrigued by certain Wii U titles that are currently available; I'm certain I'd have a lot of fun with Mario Kart 8, for instance, and I wouldn't mind trying Hyrule Warriors. That may not sound like much, but it's better than my current Vita playlist...which is nonexistent right now. That wouldn't be a deal-breaker if I thought Sony would eventually deliver the AAA titles I fully expected to see. Unfortunately, they keep saying they won't be pursuing such projects in the future, so all I can expect is niche Japanese titles, downloadable games, and games I can play on other consoles.
Remote Play isn't even the smallest attraction for me, either. At the end of the day, while I doubt the Wii U would get a huge amount of play time, it'd certainly get more than zero. I haven't touched the Vita outside of reviews in 2014 and that's just wrong.
