Would it be overkill for me to buy a WiiU since I have an Xbox and PS3. Too many home consoles I think. I sold my PSP recently and am thinking about the 3DS. I do like home consoles more but it's nice to have a portable option. So would it be smarter to get a 3DS or WiiU in your opinion. Thanks.

At this point time, I definitely recommend 3DS. Great games out, nice cheap price. Wii U might even see a price drop soon, and of course get some worthwhile, not party games.

How many games to you plan on playing on the PS3 and 360? When the new consoles come in November, the 1st party games will be on the new consoles, while 3rd party will continue to support the PS3 and 360, making the need to own both pretty limited. I say get rid of one.

In regards to the next console, keep in mind the big titles coming on to the 3DS for 2013: Mario and Luigi Dream Team, Pokemon, and Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds along with the strong software library available.

The Wii U has games coming and everyone should find something to play. I just don't know if it is enough for people on the fence.

I like the Wii U, but have not used it much due to lack of games. I personally would say 3DS because it is cheaper, the software is cheaper, and there is more software today.

I own and enjoy a lot more games for my 3DS than my Wii U. Plus there's even more neat games coming out for 3DS not too long from now.

As of now, the 3DS has a bigger and better library.
My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.
