Do you plan to drop the coin on a new Wii U?

I've been playing video games since I was a little kid, and perhaps as a result of that, the release of a major new gaming console is closest thing I've found that captures that feeling of kid on Christmas Eve, when the state of pure anticipation is at its most exquisite. To me, games are perhaps the most pure expression of the drive to utilize technology as a path to pure joy. It is the ascertainable "pretend." It is the storyteller that offers an opportunity to explore other worlds and lives. Without the exotic diseases. It is the tutor that teaches those who never actually played football why you really should punt on fourth and long. In the words of Homer Simpson, it is the, "teacher, mother,.....secret lover."
So, um, yeah, it looks like I'll be getting a Wii U. My avatar probably gives that away to fans of JRPGs.
Is the release of a new console still the big event it used to be? I accept, reluctantly, that my attitude may be anachronistic. But is it really? How excited are people to see the next big thing in console gaming?
