The 3DS should have been the Wii Us game pad.
Yeah, looking back, if Nintendo had developed the Wii U and 3DS concurrently to work together as one platform, this could have worked well. 3DS as the handheld and controller, with the console being the console. Release them same day.
Imagine if you got both of them in a bundle for $300/350(Wii U cost $150 to produce, 3DS cost only $100-ish(obviously some R&D costs for both as well, although I'd imagine most the Wii U R&D was for the gamepad).
that would be insane

Well if you think sony and ms are the correct formula for a proper system then they will be a better fit for you. Its that simple, I was in no way being immature.
This isn't entitlement. This is dreaming. Do understand consumer power, however. Nintendo is not in the dominant position as a provider of product and service. We are their employers.
If you like their software then deal with their hardware. Its like getting a Dodge and whining it isn't more like a ford.
Now, see, this is a terrible attitude if you want to support a company you like. This mentality leads to what you're seeing now, what is it? 3.8m in 11 months? As fans of a company "deal with it" is not the prevailing attitude to have. Consumers do have breaking points and they don't have to deal with it.
Also until I see PS/vita running with next to no lag in the real world I wont believe it.
There's no reason to expect it to be any worse than the Wii U's game pad.

Actually Nintendo is in a dominate position as they are the only company that profits from gaming.
No consumers don't have to deal with it but if you have all three companies doing the same thing then you have no real options. This is bad.
Yes it will be worse than the wii u for lag. the wii u has almost no lag as it is one device streaming to the controller. When you take 2 devices that are communicating together you will see lag.
You do realise if the 3DS was the gamepad, the games would look like absolute crap on it, not to mention i couldn't bear the thought of using the 3DSes buttons and analog for wii u games, so no, just no.
What I'd rather see is more multiplayer games that allow other people to join in with their 3DS'.
It's awesome playing MH3U on the TV while having your friends join you on their 3DS
It's even cool to be able to transfer your save between the Wii U and 3DS

The only reason Sony is pushing the Vita as a glorified PS4 controller is because it's failing miserably. The 3DS doesn't have that same problem. It doesn't need to piggyback off another system in order for Nintendo to make money unlike the Vita for Sony.
"Your arms are too short to box with God!"
The PS4/vita thing will fail.
When will people realise?
People don't give a crap about the Wii U. And people don't give a crap about the vita.
Stop trying to shove these awful things down consumers throats.
