Resident Evil Revelations: What version do we review?

[Update: Poll CLOSED! Wii U dominated. Look forward to our review soon.

Update: MAJOR upset! It has come to light that a PC copy WILL be made available for review purposes, and will be added as a late starter in the poll. A PC comment has now been added for your upvoting!]

On May 20, Destructoid will go live with its review of Resident Evil: Revelations for home console. However, I'm in a unique position since I can pick which version to review -- PS3, Xbox 360, or Wii U. 

There are benefits to giving the full review to any one system. The Wii U is the more exotic and interesting choice, with some GamePad-specific features. However, the Xbox 360 is generally considered the third party "standard" review, and our general audience seems made up predominantly of 360 users. Then again, people always seem interested in whether or not somebody screwed up a PS3 port, so there's a tangible benefit there. 

Since I am indecisive, I've decided upon a decision -- YOU get to decide. It's like those old Fighting Fantasy books, except a thousand times less exciting. Since I can't pick what system to perform the full review on, I'm throwing it to the people. 

What I'm going to do is leave three comments in reply to this article, down below. One will say Wii U, the other will say Xbox 360, the final will say PS3. You can then upvote your preferred system! Please note that, like Greenlight, I'll not be counting downvotes against the upvotes. This is because I am far too lazy to do pathetically simple math. 

Unfortunately, we do not have a PC version to go with, because videogame industry!
