Nintendo doesn't get the 3rd party games it needs to have to convince me the WiiU is worth the purchase. I'm not talking CoD either ... The PS3 has a well rounded RPG library for those who aren't picky, and there are games only Sony gets that keep me coming back.
That said, i'm sure the console will do itself proud as long as the 1st party games keep rocking.

I see it as a console that is about five years too late and still offers crappy motion controllers (meaning it shouldn't even have motion controls). I think if you have a ps3, 360 or decent gaming pc there is no reason to buy one at least right now. It might be worth getting in three years or so when it drops in price and if it has a bunch of exclusives that you want.
Wii U just look like a big ass gamegear that can wireless connect to the wii. The only game that will utilize the full potential of the console are games directly from nintendo, AKA : Zelda,Mario,Pokemon?
