I don't think he was accounting for handhelds. I know I wasn't. No disrespect intended to the almighty 3Dees. The Wii U is the best 8th gen home console to get as of now. Happy?

lol I was really just fooling around :p
still want to get a WiiU and still can't have one :/

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

Yeah that battery life is going to suck.....any way around it?

Nintendo makes a high capacity battery, but I don't know where they sell it (just checked the NA Nintendo site and it's listed at $32, but no buy button). There are 3rd party batteries as well.

If you like the games then grab the Wii U for sure.

Other console issues:
gamepad battery life can be solved by spending some money.

Nyko makes 2 excellent products for this
1) The U boost which is an external battery that clips on to the outside of the gamepad. It creates a little bulk but it is way better than having to plug in to keep playing. Also you can very easily put it on as needed and remove it whenever its not. You can actually play till your gampad is low on battery, put your U boost on to keep playing, then when the U boost battery is dead and your gamepad has a nice charge you can take it back off and charge the Uboost while you are playing. By doing this you can nearly indefinitely extend your playing time without needing to plug in your gamepad.
2) The Power Pak. Initially this product had some issues when released but they have all been ironed out and Nyko stands behind there products with excellent customer service. (when my initial one had issues they sent me a free U boost and USB charging cable on top of sending me a working Powerpak all with out even having to return my faulty power pak). This is a replacement battery and it is a BEAST! It has more capacity than Nintendos extended battery. I play with my gamepad on full brightness/sound/rumble and this monster lasts around 9 hour it seems, I am extremely happy with it. If you keep getting interrupted and charge whenever your not playing than it is even longer. Having this also allows you to keep your original battery as a fully charged spare. This is a user servicable part and will not void your warranty but you do have to use the included screw driver to open the battery door.

Battery issues are a thing of the past for me with these products which I basically got all for free since Nyko was so generous in fixing there defective product I was able to return the Powerpak to gamestop for a full refund and got the Uboost, USB charging cable, and Powerpad all for free. Great products that I would highly recommend.

Save games:
The console has no normal way to back up your saved games or to take them to another console to continue where you left off. very annoying.

Controller support:
The Wii U often forces you to use the gamepad for no good reason. This can be annoying when accessing system settings, Netflix, the eshop, or when needing to enter a log in password.

Wii mode:
Unfortunately the great Off TV Wii mode could be improved. It is greatly annoying when using HDMI that the Wii U forces you to change your TV input just to select OK and turn your TV off. It is also a little annoying the buttons on the gamepad only give you a message that you can't use them when playing Wii.

Virtual Console:
Way less games than the Wii had that are barely trickling with some random sparse releases every couple of weeks.

Surround Sound:
Only high end/ newer systems can play surround sound on the system. Surround Sound is only through HDMI (no coax, RCA, or TOSlink)and does not supporty any of the normal formats such as Dolby whatever or DTS and only supports full uncompressed audio. If you set it to surround with out the proper equipment you can really screw up your game audio and must instead set the Wii U to stereo sound.

Not if Nintendo took my idea and make a 3DS cartridge attachment for the Wii U :P

I couldn't recommend the WiiU, yet. Right now, for me anyways, it's nothing more than a Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and sometimes Netflix (which the Netflix app on this is garbage IMHO) machine. There's a few gems like Wonderful 101, but it's hard to recommend a system for just a few games. Now, once Mario Kart, Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros, Legend of Zelda, and hopefully (if Nintendo has any bit of common sense) a new F-Zero and Metroid (which alone would sell the system) all come out, then I'd safely recommend it. Until then, I'd stay away.

If the Wii U does not have enough games, go tell that to the 5.1 million people who bought the PS4.

Well if someone posted a thread asking if they should get a PS4, it would be applicable to that console as well. The referenced 5.1 million people apparently weren't doing the same type of research that the OP is trying for here.
