Which of these consoles do you think is better so far and why? I know this is a 3DS fan site, but we're not all ridiculously biased one way or other, right?
Personally I'd say they're pretty similar in quality (that being great consoles), although which ever one is better depends on what you're looking for.
As far as features go, I'd probably give it to the 3DS. The Wii U is good, but it doesn't have a whole lot of built in software or features like the 3DS does (no SwapNote, Face Raiders, AR stuff, StreetPass Mii Plaza games and modes, sound/music player). That's one reason I haven't bought a Wii U yet to be honest, because once the two or three games I'd buy end, what then? Do nothing until the next one comes out?
Games wise I'm split. The 3DS has more games I think are 'interesting', like Mario Kart 7, Kid Icarus Uprising, Ocarina of Time 3D and Super Mario 3D Land, but the Wii U has the better third party games and New Super Mario Bros title. The Wii U did have a better launch line up, but I suspect the 3DS will turn out to have had the better first year since Nintendo HAD to get Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 out as soon as possible and likely don't have to do the same for the Wii U equivalents. I know a rushed game isn't a good thing normally, but in these cases it did at least mean we got two great games in a fairly short time frame rather than years apart.
But what system do you think is better and why?
