I've bought the Wii U but Nintendo need a kick up the arse. They promised more 3rd party support, that they'll look after the core gamer. I don't see it and I've grown resentful of their lies.

I did have a playstation one and now have a playstation vita, but do not have any of the current gen (or previous gen) home consoles. I stick with Nintendo because their first party games really speak to me. I'd much rather bounce around as Mario any day than play a Halo or Call of Duty. Perhaps ignorance is also bliss. I'm sure I've missed out on some great games, but I really don't have the cash to be buying an extra console or two.
That said, would more third party games on wii u be good? Of course. In fact, I was thrilled to hear I could play Batman on my wii U. Will I be angry if third party support drops or doesn't pick up? Not really. In the end, I bought a wii U because I love Nintendo and their brands. I want to play Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Star Fox, Pikmin, Kirby, Donkey Kong, and whatever else they throw at me. If I miss out on Spike TV's Video Game of the Year because of it, I don't really care. I play video games because I enjoy it and I know that I'll always enjoy playing Nintendo's games no matter what.

Game breaking glitches in so many launch games.
Slow load times for internal apps.
Little to no advertising.
Expensive price tag.
Online structure has improved, but is still laughable compared to the robustness of XBL and PSN.
We can't even transfer accounts between systems.
YouTube blocking the browser makes the browser more worthless than the actual YouTube app.
Updates deleting game saves.
Updates causing more bugs.
If the console freezes, you have to shut it down by UNPLUGGING IT (what is this, the 90s?)
A little over a MONTH after launch and we're just NOW getting demos.
Wii backwards compatibility mode is a joke.
Battery life on the tablet is crap.
Yeah... I'd say Nintendo have made themselves a Dreamcast.
