I do not have any current Nintendo devices and was wondering if I should invest in a 3DS, which both me and my sister could use or a WiiU, which is more expensive and would be only for me.

I'd say a 3DS is a better choice of the two, and definitely cheaper - but why would the Wii U only be for you? Accessibility?

As of now I'd go with 3DS. There are so many discounted gems at the moment you can entertain yourself for months for the price of a Wii U alone.

3DS is cheaper, has a more established library, and is portable. Wii U is more expensive, has less games, and is stuck at home but has a big screen. Uh-oh, I meant for it to be a tie so I could say it's all up to you.

Honestly, the 3DS just has more games for it. I'm sure the Wii U will eventually pay off, but if you have to make a decision right now I would strongly recommend the 3DS.

@Jaz007 I have a Wii (broken), a DSi, and a SNES

@Geonjaha My sister would rather watch TV then play video games. Weird right?

That's what's cool about the Wii U though. Most games let you play on the controller while someone watches TV.
(I still think 3DS is the way to go though.)

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

It depends on what you want out of you gaming device, I suppose, but as far as actual games are concerned, the 3DS is the far superior option right now.

The 3DS and games themselves are much more affordably priced, it already has an established library of quality titles with many more great games scheduled to come out over the next year alone (seriously, there's, like, at least one big 3DS release scheduled for each month of 2013), a more robust selection of digital-only titles, and a larger, and quickly expanding, user base that guarantees developers will continue to support it for the foreseeable future.

Now, to be fair, the Wii U isn't even a year old yet, has a whole host of unique and interesting features, and could well turn things around over the next year (it wasn't that long ago that some gamers and analysts were predicting DOOOOOOM for the 3DS, after all), but to my eye, if the actual games are what's most important, it's the riskier choice.

The 3DS is developing a FANTASTIC software library. I definitely recommend it.

3DS if you want something that has an established game library that will continue to grow. Wii U if you want something that will get an established game library soon enough. If you don't have a PS360, and since your Wii is broken I do suggest the Wii U, but not over the 3DS.

3DS because:
1: It's portable.
2: It has a new gaming revolution: stereoscopic 3D.
3. It has a better library of games and upcoming games.
4. It has lots of social features and upcoming social features like Miiverse and Flipnote Studio 3D.
I think the Wii U will eventually become the better system, but right now 3DS is the Nintendo system to own. I hope this helps. :)

Games I'm playing currently: Legend of Zelda: A Link Betweeen Worlds, Tearaway
Games I'm excited for: Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. 4, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8
