You might as well have said you weren't buying an Xbox 360 because you hadn't turned on your original Xbox in a year.
It goes to show a trend of what types of games one might expect on the system. Sure the trend can change, as the focus from SNES games to Wii games. Some of us didn't like the focus on the types of games the Wii offered compared to the PS3. I love The New Super Mario Brothers on the Wii, but really it doesn't have nearly the depth of content for my tastes as say something like the PS3 (best gaming library by far).
The Wii U may very well be the most capable system, but so far they haven't shown anything that looks better or even on the same level of games on the 360 let alone the PS3.
I want it to be a system I want to have and that means I'm hoping they put out tons of great software. I was hopeful for the Wii as well and bought one. I just felt the Wii came up short on the software for games I want. It will probably be a while before the Wii has a lot I want. I like the way the new Mario looks but 1 or 2 cool looking games isn't enough to get me to purchase at this point, especially at its high price point.
