Serious disscusion looking at either Vita or Wii U.

*discussion*

Been looking at selling my 360 (I still have a PS3 fyi) and Gamestop is giving double credit on system trade ins so now seems to be the time to let it go. On the one hand as a huge Sony fan I really like the Vita with games like Persona and Uncharted but on the other hand I do enjoy Nintendo and all of its franchises.

Just kind of taking some opinions. Which console seems to have the most potential and which one will likely be around longer? Obviously no one can see into the future but some honest opinions would be appreciated.

Save your money until one of them gets real system sellers. This is coming from a Vita owner.

I'd go with the vita since you already have games you like on the system, as for the Wii U I tend to not buy systems at launch, you probably have Batman and assasins creed on your PS3 so unless Zombie U and mario are big for you I'd go with the vita.

buy the one that has more games you're interested in released and anoounced. if they're about even, the wii u would be a safer bet since it's pretty much guaranteed to get all big name nintendo franchises you're a fan of.

vita board has literally 1 or 2 trolls - GoombaX (he was absolutely serious)

I would personally go with the Wii U.
Both won't have any strong new releases until March or so, but Wii U has more potential, game-wise.

^Hates the vita for it's lack of games and support, suggests the only other thing available with legitimately less to offer.

Okay, so your just in the troll to fanboy range. hmm. Tsk tsk.

Vita is overpriced, has overpriced memory cards and only ports, atleast Wii U has 2 games and is about to outsell the Vita already, which means way more support.

Wii. Seriously the whole sales/support ratio thing, completely busted. It's really just the fanboys who totter that ideal as some pure truth.

Vita has more then two games... so that's just stupid. WiiU is overpriced as well and instead of overpriced memory(which I believe the official nintendo hard drives are overpriced) they instead give you a micro sized hard drive when the competition dwarfs it as well as also allowing for expansion just like the WiiU and has it's fair share of ports as well.

Very poorly founded argument. Darkphiresage is the only person with a real reason and only under the assumption that the TC enjoys Nintendo titles that much, TC seems to, I don't but hey that's where preference comes in.
