@OlympicCho
I'm fairly sure a "White Knight" is someone who leaps in to "save" a damsel in distress in the hope of getting some sort of social cred. So in this case it would be the people jumping in to support the people saying that the Vita is totally super awesome.

As for the "fun" of the Wii U being unproven I don't think you have that much of an argument. The real question mark over both of these systems is what sort of long term support they're going to get. We don't know how long that "fun" will extend across multiple years and multiple games and what sort of genres they'll be best at. This is the only thing about both systems we don't know.

It's also worth pointing out that with the TV turned off the Wii U basically turns into a slightly larger Vita with more horsepower. The only difference in terms of usage, assuming you don't leave the house with it, is that with a Wii U you can also display HD content on a TV and have an extra four players with separate controllers. So for that reason if you ignore long term support, which is an unknown at this stage, the Wii U is a better experience if you're not taking it with you everywhere. If you are going to take it with you obviously the Wii U can't really do that in any practical sense.

So that's an objective comparison between the two.

I say it'll be more obvious when the WiiU is a year old, which ever system gets a good line up (and I mean EXCLUSIVE since if we were to include PSP/One games then the WiiU could include NES/SNES/MegaDeive/Mastersystem/ N64/NeoGeo/Arcade/WW/Wii/TurboGrafix/GCN)

One thing you need to remember is that TGS is coming up really soon, I would wait and see what announcements come from there before deciding. Also, there will presumably be another Nintendo Direct in the next two months detailing things like Miiverse and the eShop, perhaps a glimpse into what will be coming out after March 2013. If you do decide to go for Vita, wait until Christmas to pick it up. I say that because you could probably get it cheaper then than now. When I picked mine up I got it with a $50 GameStop card, I'm sure there will be similar deals this Holiday season. Then you'll also know if Assassin's Creed Liberation is any good, hopefully it is as it's the only notable game coming to the platform this Holiday.

I agree with what you are trying to prove, but by your own admission they are too dissimilar for an objective comparison to hold any weight.
On the other hand, perhaps that was your point!

Whatever you feel is better. You may want to wait on the Wii U and the Vita if it's that hard of a choice. My personal opinion, don't get the Vita. I am avoiding that thing, I hate to say it but the PSP is very influential in my thinking. 3DS is doing better and even that is only doing modestly right now. All the people I knew who had similar tastes in games as I did said the PSP was useless. It's an exaggeration, obviously there are plenty of good games on it but compared to the DS it was just totally outmatched. Call me fanboy all you want but I don't see the Vita being in a different position this generation than the PSP was last generation. Obviously things can change and I may be proved wrong, but right now I don't know why anyone would get it. If you see a bunch of games on it that are exclusive to it and really want then go on ahead and get it then. I am not stopping you.

So pretty much, don't get a Vita because lots of nintendo fanboys think the DS had a better library than the PSP. Perfect logics.

Ultimately the thing that makes one platform different from another is the type of software that it runs. It doesn't matter if one console is technically superior or has an interesting sounding control scheme if it doesn't have the games you want to play. However on hardware alone the Wii U is a better console if you don't intend to take it with you everywhere. If this was a question of whether someone should get the same game on either Wii U or Vita and the intention was to play it at home I'd say get it on the Wii U. If they were wanting to take it with them everywhere the Vita would win.

The problem is that the software is not the same.

@zezhyrule: No, don't get a Vita because it's just an expensive paperweight at this point.

"I Think Most people would pick the Home console (Wii U) than the Hand held (PS Vita)

1.Wii U has more games
2.Wii U is more creative when it comes to gaming
3.Wii U has it's own Social Network (Miiverse)
4Wii U has way better games than the Vita (e.g) Mass Effect 3, Assassins Creed 3, Nintendo Land, Zombie U, New Super Mario Bros and many more.

Even better logics!

It's funny though, I can play a whole lot more games on my Vita currently than I could on a Wii U.
