I’m coming late to the game about shopping for a video game console. I see now that the Wii would have been a great choice a few years ago. I still love the games available for it, but the technology seems so outdated that it seems foolish to buy it instead of the Wii U (or the Xbox 360).

But I’m just not thrilled with the battery-hogging controller on the Wii U, and not thrilled at all with the game selection on the Xbox. What to do?
