Yes in the sense that it is the cheapest not just price wise but online is free to play, has the most and best exclusives, backwards compatibility without having to pay for it, eshop support as well as indie support, and connectivity. But no if you just want what you're friends have and you wanna play cod, destiny, have money in the long run to pay for online support, deal with hackers, and actually have money to keep pouring into games that have microtransactions. PS4 and Xbox one are not worth it, well to me ps4 isn't yet until ff15 and the division come out which is why I got a wii u for games like bayonetta 2, ssb, splatoon, earthbound on the eshop, wonderful 101, devil's third, fatal frame 5, and xenoblade chronicles on the wii for backwards compatibility. Halo 5 ain't ****, that game bombed hard with its graphics, story, and microtransactions. And besides, xenoblade chronicles x is coming out in December 4th this year which is one the most important game releases this year.
