Should I get a Wii U or 3DS?

I just came into some money so now is my opportunity to advance to the next piece of Nintendo hardware. What should I get between Wii U and 3DS? So far I don't see much in the Wii U's library that interests me but since it is brand new it may be a worthwhile investment...on the other hand 3DS also seems cool since my sister has one and I like how it seems.

It might depend on how much money you have, because of buying the games too.
The Wii U is great, so if you're interested in it check out the releases for this year. There are some pretty good ones coming out, so it might be worth getting that. However, it depends on the future releases you'd be interested in.

The 3DS is obviously cheaper and has cheaper games (at least it does here - sorry, I might be wrong about over there) but it's also a great handheld. There are some good titles already out, so if you don't want to wait or want to have a spending spree you should consider getting the 3DS instead, then a Wii U later when more games are out for it.

IMO you should probably go with a 3DS for now since there are already a lot of games out for it, it's not as expensive, and the Wii U (or at least it's games) should go down a little in price over a few months. Perhaps save for a Wii U so you can buy it later?

The 3DS is the obvious choice. I'm gonna go a step further and suggest a 3DS XL, as the larger system makes the games look gorgeous and it feels a more comfortable system than just the 3DS Vanilla.

Seems it's unanimous for the 3DS.

Wii U is awesome but the 3DS XL already has a decent game library while we're still waiting on the Wii U to fulfill its massive potential

3DS.
Unless you want to wait for the remake of Legend of Zelda Wind Waker for the Wii U, then I would say: Wii U.

The 3DS is getting the better games right now, but the tables could be turned by next year. Nintendo hasn't really started cranking out the big Wii U games yet, but you know they're coming eventually.
