Many develops are saying wii u is not next gen.Fans are saying they are haters.I want to speak my opinion.Honestly for the most part i think the devs are right.Wii U isnt really that much more powerful than PS3 or 360.I think most devs like wii u's new features but are turned off by its power.I mean instead of innovation over power what about both.On the other hand does power really matter? I mean the game can still look good on Wii U. Power might not be everything.We'll just have to see.I dont want Wii U to fall to microsoft or sony, so i hope nintendo shows devs that Wii U can be as good as any other platform.So, what are your thoughts on this.
EDIT: Since people are not understanding what im trying to say I will clear it up now.I am saying that devs call wii u current gen because of its power.I am also saying that if the people at nintendo get off their lazy butts and start showing third parties that wii u is as good as ps4/nextbox it will be considered next gen. It is next gen but its not considered next gen.

I think defining console generations doesn't work if you take power into account. Or doesn't work at all. Like what was the dreamcast anyway? WHAT GENERATION ARE YOU DREAMCAST?! 32 BIT ERA IS WHERE?!

My thoughts stay away from the "next gen" marketing/indoctrination that software developers throw around to generate hype for their products.

As for Nintendo, it will continue to sell its plastic devices and games for them for years to come in whatever shape or form they can.

My other console is a next gen

It's next gen. It's more powerful than Xbox 360 or PS3 to be categorized as last gen. It won't be as powerful as other next gen consoles, but that in no way makes it LAST gen.
All in all, it's next gen anyway you put it, so I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

The reason why they think it's last gen is because Nintendo isn't using the console to it's full potential, and most aren't willing to try.
This opinion of 'Wii U is more current gen' isn't anything new. BTW, you said you think they are right, which I was just clarifying that the assumption is wrong.
Your opinion doesn't matter if there are already facts to state otherwise. It's like thinking a car is blue when it's red, and we both know what the color red looks like.
The devs are literally saying Wii U is 'current' gen 'just because' at this point.

If it's not next-gen it's no-gen. You can't release something that goes backwards, time is constantly moving forward.

Looking forward to: Mario Kart 8

There's a difference between observing and discussing and taking something seriously.

Then again, you're the guy who thinks every opinion is factually wrong but your own. No surprise there.

You can think what you want, but I already know for a fact that Wii U is next gen.
If you feel so strongly that Wii U is last gen, why make a thread?

Let me say this again,I did not say Wii U is last gen. I was giving ideas why devs think it is last.I made this thread to see if people agree or disagree.

Disagree on ideas of why it's last gen, or agree that it is last gen? I agree that it is next gen.
Ideas of it being last gen don't matter if it's next gen, which it is.

It's current-gen by geek technical standards, but next-gen in potential. Just look at something like Super Mario Galaxy, and you can't say that didn't turn heads while running on inferior hardware.

I think Nintendo made it easier to make better use of the hardware this time around, though.
If everyone had the know how Nintendo had for Wii last gen, we would have seen better titles on Wii, going as far as seeing better games across all platforms.
Overall, the specs can only tell so much.
