I personally have to say I'm pretty happy with what will be available during the launch window. That's better than what we got at the launch of the 3DS.
But the difference is, if all that was shown will really be released during the launch window, what will come next?? The 3DS had massive announcements at the same time as the console which still need to come out (Kingdom Hearts and Paper Mario are among those). But the Wii U, while for me it'll have a decent launch window line-up, doesn't seem to have a lot to look forward to beyond these first "4 months" (that is, still, if what they said about all these titles being for the launch window, is to be believed).
One point that needs to be stressed though is that, obviously, the Wii U is pretty new, and more beefy tech means games won't come out at a tremendous rate like they could on previous consoles, so expecting even more games than on Wii might be a little idealistic. One of the reasons the Wii got so many titles over the course of it's 5 and a half years is that it costed less money and took less time to develop for it. If I consider this, I say that, for me, having quite a few games to look forward to in a 4 months time is quite an achievement.
I'm sold already on Aliens Colonial Marines, Rayman Legends and Pikmin 3. ZombiU, depsite its slightly subpar graphics had me almost sold ont he concept of survival alone. P-100 looks quite good too, although I'd like to know more before I make decision, and depending on reviews, because I know very little about the following, I might even buy Lego City Undercover, Trine 2 and Darksiders II.
That's 3 definite purchases for 4 months, with several other potentials. The same couldn't be said of the 3DS, which I love now despite that...
What worries me is "are they going to be able to keep up the pace beyond that ?", and when are we going to see those games which will come out after, and will I be interested. Sure we know we can expect them sooner or later, but the longer time it could take to develop them because Nintendo has now joined the realm of HD is still worrying. Announcing mere titles, without showing anything, would have been enough to reassure everyone, but they didn't, and that's sad.
