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.

Hey everyone, I've been gone for a couple of months. Have to say Im loving my Wii U. The day after the launch of Lego City Under Cover I got it, I just beat the story last night! And I have only completed 30% of the game appearently. On the same day that I got Lego City, I also got Monster Hunters Ultimate and Need for Speed (Wii U version of course). I got all 3 games based off of a deal that target was having. Buy two video games, get the third one for free.

I have been loving Lego City, its so creative and funny. And the plateforming/ parcore that the game has, isn't that bad actually. If I could rate this game, it would get a 9.

Are they having a sale on decent OS speeds?

That would be a rip off if Nintendo sold firmware updates.

Is the Wii U focusing more towards the Casual gamer like the original Wii did or is it gonna be geared towards a more vast audience this time?

The long answer is we hope so and it seems so, the short term answer is yes.

*edit* sorry my post didnt make much sense, I meant to say:

The long aswer is yes Nintendo is trying to get everyone, teh casuals and teh hardcore.
