hey guys, been thinking about getting a Wii U or 3DS was wondering what you guys thought. I can get decent deals on both, although the 3DS is cheaper of course. I don't really game outside the house which has me a little reluctant to buy the 3DS, however the games look great and it would be nice to have something to play when the TV is being used by family... which could be solved by the Wii U as well.
I see potential in the Wii U despite its shortcomings, however it's pretty apparent there isn't a lot to play right now. If I bought one I'd probably just buy NSMB for now until Pikmin 2 and Wonderful 101 (this looks really awesome) come out.
I already own a 360, but it has kind of grown stale on me, and I'd like to get rid of it at some point. The PS4 interests me as well, but I have a feeling it'll be too much money to bother buying at launch, and I'll end up buying it after a price drop. What do you guys think? Pick up a 3DS with great games now, or a Wii U on optimistic potential? I will not get both, just fyi. Thanks for any help.
(would also appreciate answers that aren't "I own Wii U, so you should buy one!")

I actually own both the Wii U and 3DS, and both are great systems. Granted the Wii U does have its short comings, but that stuff is being patched out. Infact sometime in April (hopefully early April), Nintendo will release a patch that will speed up the Wii U's load times (like closing out a game and going to the home menu). And the speed up is very evident from the video that Nintendo uploaded to their channel! If you do get the Wii U, I recomend Lego City Undercover. Its really addictive.
