I got a wiiu... but when I think of next Gen i'm thinking more about next gen engines and systems that can run those games well. The Wiiu is Nintendo's next gen system and I am really looking forward to stellar titles from Nintendo and their 2nd party developers like Monolith Soft in the future but I don't really see it as being Next Gen hardware wise. It's closer in power to Xbox 360 than Durango or Orbis.

The wiiu is starting to get much better results now that 3rd party devs have more time with the hardware.

Check out need for speed most wanted wiiu versus xbox 360

I was being sarcastic about the Wii-U.... I read that the Wii-U is actually doing worse then any other console in history.

It'll be fine long term but will go threw some growing pains like the 3ds before great exclusive content and a price drop occurs.

I'm not going to get into a long thing with you again since you've proven to be incapable of being unbiased when speaking about Nintendo. But it actually is quite similar if not superior to the ps3 and xbox 360 launch in terms of sales numbers. It's true that Nintendo has really dropped the ball again just like they did with the 3ds. But they will certainly recover and have a decent go again and will make a lot of money from the sale of exclusive software.. just like the 3ds. I don't expect the system to pick up much until Pikmin 3 arrives and then I would expect a dip again and then a huge Christmas. After that the system will sell at a decent rate. Somewhere in between what the cube did and the wii did. Core titles like Metroid will sell better than they did on Wii and casual titles like Wii Sports, new super mario bros, and Wii Fit will sell worse than they did on the wii.

I don't know about that... they already are selling the system at a loss and a price drop would really hurt them.

I'm thinking this console tanks like the Virtual Boy and they'll come out with a normal regular console in about 2 - 3 years.

I doubt it.. Mario Kart and 3d Mario are too powerfully for that and by next Christmas they could still do a white console bundle with New Super Mario Bro's for under 300 bucks. They have way too much money invested right now into AAA HD game development to just can the system and not release these games. It certainly won't be another wii and thank everything holy for that.

I'd rather Nintendo have a system that sold 30 million units but only had user who actually care about traditional games than another wii...

And having said all this I actually wish you were right.. I wish i was going to get a new cutting edge Nintendo system in 2 or 3 years but we won't. Nintendo is far too stubborn for that. For good or bad I think we are stuck with this Nintendo system for 5 years.

The funny part is that the 3DS regained traction because it starting putting out normal games and minimized the use of 3D. Essentially it's a souped up DS Lite.

The Wii-U no matter what will force people to use that awkard tablet with poor battery life and it apparently isn't even as powerful as the 8 year old xbox 360.

I think lots of people were fooled by the Wii and won't get burned twice.

It would be best for Nintendo to admit they made a mistake, make a new Nintendo system and focus on games rather then the gimmicks.

This is way I don't enjoy discussing Nintendo with u. Despite the fact that there are accurate ways to attack Nintendo you sensationalize and distort the truth. Only and idiot or a troll in your case thinks the 360 specs can rival a system with a gpu which is generations ahead and 4 times the ram.

The wiiu got a bunch of crappy ports but with time like any system the graphics will improve. It can go well beyond Xbox 360.
