He says "Wii U is next gen in terms of interface". If interface doesn't count, what does count as next gen?

Power and processing speed, the same factors which have always been historically used to distinguish one generation from another and group consoles together?

Let's suppose Wii U bombs hard. Virtual Boy levels of bad. Do you see Nintendo becoming a handheld-only gaming company?

Seeing as the DS is about 500 times better than the Wii in terms of game library, I'd have no issues with that.

If that does happen, it's a good thing Smash Bros. is coming to 3DS.

Nintendo making only handhelds would suck because sometimes I want to play games in glorious HD on a TV not just on the go. Imagine if the only way you could experience Super Mario Galaxy was on a 4" screen lol (or a 400x480 combined screen upscaled/resampled to HD resolution for TVs).

WiiU will not bomb. The brand recognition of the Wii will be enough for kids to want it even if the "core audience" moves away and doesn't buy it (which probably won't happen given how it looks better than everything else on the market for now, and Nintendo's getting back some third-party support). It's more like the Dreamcast than the Saturn anyway, in design at least.

Also the WiiU is literally a large scale 3DS except for the 3D (every gimmick/feature is there) so why are we still getting console franchises shifted to 3DS portable exclusives Sad

I could imagine a future iteration of the DS with a 16:9 upper screen that can be streamed in HD to a normal TV set.

Bad photoshopping aside, I really want to see a non-white Wii U. Preferably blue:



Please Nintendo, please Beg Wii got black and red colors last year, don't do the same with Wii U and launch with at least two colors.

Wii U is like a console DS so let's hope Capcom makes another phoenix wright Apollo Justice game for this console.

No, this is just silly. Whatever the serious gamers' opinions are, the Wii U is going to sell many, many copies to women, old people and small children.

i think gamers will go soon extinct anyway (just like all other forms of computer nerd) as computers and videogames become more approachable, so that's not really a big issue. the fact that you can make games and consoles entirely for normal people now and still as much or more money shows that gamers are on their way out; and that's probably a good thing, they hold innovation in games back more than any other group besides big AAA publishers

casual games aren't exactly known for their creativity either but of the new genres that have been created in recent years most of those new genres are casual genres (hidden object, time management, tower defense, etc.)

I'll be kind of safe because platformers and kart racers are equally loved by "casuals". But I'd really miss fighters and RPGs  Sad

rpgs are not a particularly hardcore genre to me, especially jrpgs -- those are pretty casual. but there are all kinds: dungeon crawlers and roguelikes and most srpgs are hardcore, most modern jrpgs are casual, with stuff like fallout 3 falling in between
