I played some Black Ops 2 on the Wii U last night and I really liked it. I bought one of their "pro" controllers which is basically a 360 controller clone. The nice part of the Wii U is that it will be able to port over a lot of the big titles for the time being until PS4 and 720 come out, and they will always have the Zelda and Mario franchises.
The big question will be whether they can maintain these ports once the other consoles arrive.
