Both! No regrets with getting the WiiU either.

Me Getting the Big Boss Emblem!:

Both. Got a 3DS at launch (not a good idea) and a Wii U in Summer 2014. I then got a Switch in Summer 2017.

From the GameCube and GBA onward I get every Nintendo platform. There's always at least a few 1st-party games I want to play.

My Nintendo consoles all time:

NES - I love this one

SNES - I love this one

N64 - I REALLY REALLY HATE THIS ONE (one of the worst videogames i had...i have 34 videogames)

Nintendo wii - I love this one

Nintendo Switch - I love this one

I´ve never had any portable nintendo consoles like "game boy" family.

Have a Wii U, but skipped right past the 3DS, even though I have all the other consoles and handhelds from Nintendo (except Virtual Boy of course)

Had neither. The Wii U having only one gamepad was just bizarre, I pretty much just stopped paying attention to video games from 2011 until the Switch came out. Only portable I ever had was Game Boy. Love the Switch. It's hard to compare it to like nostalgia of my childhood growing up with NES, SNES, N64, but Switch is pretty awesome.

Got the 3DS for the Nintendo 64 ports on that years ago. - But sold the 3DS when I realized handhelds weren't for me.

Bought a Wii U about 12 months ago as it was being depreciated and thus the right time to buy and collect for as it was cheap... So far I have about 50~ games.
Just wanting Zelda Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD and I am done collecting for it.

Got the Switch a few months ago and only have about a dozen games. - Haven't had the time to play it due to being on constant rotating deployments fighting fires around the nation.

Got both and my Xenoblade Chronicles X machine is doing mighty fine 😏

I also consider my 3DS to be my best Ninty console of all time still. (Probably surpassed by the Switch in a year or two though)

Don't have a Wii U, never had a handheld Nintendo console in my life, and only one handheld ever (Atari Lynx).

The 1st party games enticed me for a Switch, but I don't use its handheld mode at all, I simply dislike handheld gaming. Pro controller is among the best controllers I ever tried, which also helps!

End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

I had a WiiU and a 3DS, but only played Zelda games in it. PS3 and PS4 were my primary consoles till the Switch came out. Now my Switch sees 90% of all my gaming time.
