I bought the Wii long time ago, because of the way to play games. It was really nice, but after 2 or 3 years I was kind of disappointed about the games (childish)... I could see that on the PS3, there are a lot of nice games (Uncharted, Mass effect, etc.). Finally I sold my Wii and bought a PS3 (with my roommate).
I'm afraid it will be the same with the Wii U. The Wii U will be fun for "at home party" with friends but not to play "hardcore" games.
So I don't think I'll buy it.
This is just my opinion.
The way I look at it is that the PC is for hardcore games, and console games are more like popcorn flicks. Nintendo makes the best 1st party games bar none, and virtually every PS3/XBOX360 game worth playing is available in a superior form on PC.
Full disclosure I own an XBOX360, PS3 and a Wii.
