Next possible R/C: Traxxas E-Revo VXL

I've been eying the Traxas E-Revo VXL for next year purchase. I can afford a E-Revo now, but isn't the Wii U or Xbox Loop a much better purchase due to the sheer openGL 3.3 / DirectX 11 GPU technology behind them. Sometime in 2013, I will be buying a Xbox Loop along with Forza Motorsport 5, Perfect Dark 2, and Gears of War 4.

The Savage XS Flux and $50 Tonka Ricochet (1994) are the only R/Cs I own.
