Why would anyone want to buy 8+ year old hardware then pay a fee to play games online? Buy a Wii U and play games for FREE!

I think there's way more to consider. The 360 is still cheaper than the WiiU, has a massive back catalog of game that also cost much less than the Nintendo console.

If online in a sticking point, the Microsoft box starts to lose a lot of it's value proposition over time, but the 360 online infrastructure, and community is far superior on both fronts compared to what you will find on the WiiU.

let's see, a $15/month 2 year contract that's basically $360, +$100 that's $460, no wonder it never took off. Cell phone carriers can do that because people have to pay a for their phone usage, but there's no such thing for the Xbox (ok there's Xbox gold but that's not mandatory and it's only like $40/year).

$60 dollars a year. Maybe if you hunt around you can find a deal.
