    Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 or $299
    Wii U + NSMBU $339
    :unsure:
    So torn because of the similarity of the price.

    Galaxy Tab 3 is intel based. Intel on android = bad. (a lot of good stuff is arm only)

    Sorry, got the 8 and the 10.1 confused. Well, for n64 games it has an ok gfx chip (mali-400mp) but it doesn't have a chance at running dolphin.

    Deep in GBAtemp addiction
    Looking at the SPECS on the thing, I'd say the only thing the tablet has going for it is portability and resolution (camera resolution ... or just not including the HDTV resolution part of the Wii U)
    BUT
    Seems to me you've already decided.

    WiiU has no gaems

    Tablets are completely pointless


    tough choice.
    Have you considered setting your money on fire for temporary warmth?

    Tablets are not pointless, and WiiU has upcoming "GAEMS"

    It depends.

    The WiiU is going to have a lot of really stellar games coming within the next year (at least, announced as such), and is pretty fun to play around with. Off-screen play with the tablet has actually completely changed the way I play my games, so I think for that alone it's worth a look.

    The Tab might be a better choice if you are a tinkerer/hacker by nature. You will get many more hours of enjoyment out of making that thing jump through hoops than you would with the WiiU. However, you're really counting on community support for hacking it, so look into that first.

    I've also found that once I was done messing with getting my Android tablet(s) running just so, I never really used them again. I don't think they ever really came up with a "killer app" for tablets that you couldn't do better with something else. Opinions vary, though.

    The galaxy tab would be a nice ds,psp emulating/Netflix and web viewing device. The Wii u has upcoming games. It's a tough choice.

    I can't say, but are you using the tab for gaming? If so, wouldn't the Nvidia Shield be better than the tab
    for that?

    Please don't compare tablets to consoles.

    Tablets aren't gaming devices and consoles aren't computers.
    (they both can be used that way but it's not their intended purpose)

    If you want games, Wii U
    Want your shitty angry birds and ports of old games, then a tablet will suffice yes.

    You're new to the internet aren't you.
    Welcome and enjoy your stay.
    In case of emergency, your seat may be used as a flotation device.
    Probably.


    ...no promises.

    I would recommend you to get the new Kindle Paperwhite instead, it's a really terrific device.
