Right now, the Wii U is maybe a 6.5-7.5 out of 10 on my Want Scale. However, my Reason Scale is placing it at around a 2 or 3, which weights it way down on my Possibility Scale.
At the moment, if it's not something I can afford within the constraints of a single paycheck, then it's not something that's likely to happen. And it definitely doesn't fall within those constraints. And while I want one, I don't have time right now in my college career. Add that to the fact that there are almost no launch window titles that I care about... :/
I'm mostly sure I'll get it eventually. I just can't afford to get one right now (financially or otherwise), and I can't ask for one for Christmas - even if my parents could get me a present that large, they wouldn't because I'm in school, and probably wouldn't even if I weren't.
I'm toying with the idea of bringing my Wii with me to school to tide myself over... or upgrading to the latest version of Dolphin.
