I mean, look at the choice of 3rd party games that they had demoed for the WiiU at E3. It's clear at least that Nintendo's marketing focus has shifted a bit for the WiiU.

As for what it has to do with the PS3 - the WiiU will be, for some unknown period of time, the most powerful console on the market. Depending on when Sony and Microsoft release their next consoles and how their specs compare. In Sony's case, I haven't heard anything about the PS4 arriving anytime soon. So for a certain segment of the market who always want to have the most powerful console available, and who currently have PS3s, they may be tempted to get a WiiU.
People don't buy multi-platform games on Nintendo systems and the controller situation for the WiiU is all kind of ****ed up. You are only able to use one of those special video controllers at a time.

Also Nintendo's online system is a horrible abomination. Friend codes...Blech. If this thing isn't priced right it's going to be a disaster like the 3DS
