Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.
Also check out my personal website at bryanwagstaff.com, where I occasionally write about assorted stuff.

The graphical difference is always a leap forward. The fact that Unreal 4 can't run on WiiU but on the new Xbox and PS (and PC) should tell you something.
Get the WiiU. It's true next gen device. And anything Microsoft or Sony could release with better hardware specs would be pretty expensive (not that I'm not buying a 720 on launch day). I don't think the graphical leap forward will be as much of a difference with the next gen consoles as it was from XBox to XBox360 and PS2 to PS3. So the WiiU should be able to hang in there for a while.

I have a question though. Is it true that the WiiU is not as powerful as the 360 or PS3?

Especially with the holidays coming up. I tend to buy gold cards for $20-30 when they go on sale for boxing day/black friday.
I you're in a hurry, from what I've seen the 360 would be best, but if the Wii U has games you want to play that might be the way to go. And I feel the need to point out that it's relatively trivial to find 12 month Xbox Live Gold subscription cards for around $35-40 USD online.
