All the reviews for the Wii U comes off poor.
Just a heads up, the price probably won't drop for WiiU until it's second or third year. It really depends on it's sales and demand, and that's looking to already be fairly strong. I wouldn't hold out for a price drop.
If money is a factor, I'd get the Wii for the price point, but considering that Wii U is backwards compatible, I'd drop money on that.
Either purchase will be good, and getting a Wii is not a bad choice due to it's excellent library.
