Get the 3ds and skip 352 Days. Instead get Tales of the Abyss or something.

Personally I loved Xenoblade and Resident Evil, but wasn't a big fan of any of the other games you listed there. For me, if you're talking only in terms of these games, I'd say get the Wii. But if you're willing to keep up with game releases the 3DS is much more likely to get more games you'd be interested in, while the Wii is pretty much dead.

Basically: the Wii is the better short term investment, the 3DS is the smarter long term investment.

Recoded is worse in terms of story but superior in terms of gameplay. Fans usually say skip Re:coded since it's like filler from a story perspective, but not because it's a bad game.

Days has a much better story since it reveals Roxas' story during CoM, but I found it to be the worst KH gameplay wise... excluding KHV-Cast and the original Coded.

I take it you don't have a DS, so drop the DS KH games and get Radiant Historia and The World Ends With You.

The Wii. Xenoblade and The Last Story are better than anything the 3DS has rpg wise.

3DS get Devil Survivor Overclocked(or wait for IV), the dragon quest ds games(especially IX) will also last you until VII,Etrian Odissey and Strange Journey are good if you don't mind some dungeon crawling, Final Fantasy IV and III are the best remakes of those classics meanwhile we hopefully get Bravely Default, and there is a lot more the library of 3DS rpgs is amazing with the DS tittles only and there is some good ones coming for the 3DS now

not really into dungeon crawlers.. Ive played FFIV (even though i know the ds one is a remake) i already have the remake version of 3 on PSP and i am KINDA interested in DQ 9 because it was online play.. but Im sure its not true wifi play lol probably one of those "you need your friend with a ds next to you to play the game"online" kinda games
