That being said, I'm more intertered in the hardware of the Vita than the software. I'm interested in Golden Abyss and perhaps Dragon's Crown, but is the built-in software and hardware enough to warrant it's price tag at this point? Or should I just save my money for the Wii U?
Honestly, I'd wait to make a decision until we know more about both systems, particularly the launch lineups. I've made no secret that I'm spectacularly underwhelmed by the Wii U. IMO, if you already own a PS3 or 360, you don't need to own a Wii U based on what we know so far. If you don't already own a PS3 or 360, you will be able to buy one with a couple of decent games with the money you could spend on a Wii U. Nintendo just hasn't announced anything worthy of interest about the console yet outside of a controller I find pretty unnecessary and gimmicky.
Then there's the Vita, Sony's handheld Hail Mary. We don't know what the launch lineup will be, the pricing model for games, or if it'll be better supported than the PSP was. I'm impressed by the Tech, and I'll be getting one somewhere down the line to replace my PSP. But for all we know, the handheld will flop like the 3DS has and the thing will get a significant price drop soon after launch (also like the 3DS has). I also want to know other pertinent information such as battery life and how well it plays PSP games (as well as if there will ever be even a 3rd party solution to the UMD problem).
There's plenty of time until both systems release, so save your money and keep an eye on information as it comes in. If you like what you see of the Vita, pick one up. Ditto for the Wii U. There's just not enough information out there to recommend either platform, IMO.
