@Ryno I couldn't agree more! :D it will be the game of the generation almost for sure!

I was once a fighter in spirit alone, but not long ago I found something that was missing and became a fighter in body and mind too.
looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

What were nintendo thinking exactly?!

Well it has less theoretical jigglyfloppages. If that means "less powerful" to you then so be it, but it's a more modern architecture with more features.

Reminds me of how the Xbox was supposed to be a mile away from the PS2 and Gamecube when it launched and only ended up a mile away from the PS2. Wii U is a mixed bag with more RAM and there's no sense comparing FLOPS to the PS360, which are very different (and confusing) consoles.

In a general sense though, the Wii U should be able to push a bit more than the PS360 ever did, but it's about time Nintendo tried another N64 or Gamecube,t hat's what the hardcore market wants now and the Wii U is struggling to hit even Gamecube numbers so far...so why not? Spend your budget on silicon and include a cheap traditional controller. Make sure your physical media is comparable in storage to your competitors though this time and the system is easy to develop for.

Shinen debunked the rumor. I'll side with the company that actually know the Wii U hardware better than most.

Besides, the rumor started with NeoGAF, who is well known for loving Sony and despising Nintendo (insomuch that talking bad about Sony gets you banned, but not others). Guess what's coming out next week? Yep, this looks like attempts to make the competition look worse than to make yourself look better. Politics 101.

I missed buying and playing Xenoblade Chronicles and I regret it very much. I'm quite excited there is something new coming, I will not make that mistake again :D It's bound to be a good game.

The titles that the WiiU will miss out on will be down to the WiiU lacking significant marketshare, not due to it being weaker hardware since they can tone the graphical settings right down.

Terrible...non-sensical. The Wii U's architecture is not directly compatible with PC/PS4/XB1 and when PS360 ports stop happening devs have no reason to continue making ports on a similar console with much less marketshare.

The wii has the biggest marketshare and still lacked the third-party support that the others enjoyed. Marketshare is important but is not the only factor.
The deciding factor was simply that almost all major multi-plat releases sold far less on the wii.

This is no surprise, at least to me. I own the wii but will always got the version on another platform because the wii version was usually so inferior. I really don't see this being such a problem with the wii u because the games look better than last gen already and the console is still in it's infancy. The next gen doesn't look like it is going to be such a big leap from the current. 1080p@60 is all the talk these days and wii u can do that.
Where before even the most ardent Nintendo fan found the graphics on the wii a turn off - on multi-plats.

This time around however I intend to stick with only the wii u so I am hoping multi-plat games are decent ports and sell well to keep the third-parties happy. I am happy with COD:Ghost on the wii u and with ubisoft's support. If the wii u can only recapture some third-party support I would not be tempted to buy another console because I really do not want to.

I'm fine with Nintendo having the least powerful console. I mean, if history has shown us anything, it's that the least powerful is usually the winner.

While you're point is sound, those first two console comparisons of yours are completely wrong...

  • 2600 vs Intellivision (Intellivision more powerful. 2600 sells more)
  • NES vs 5200 vs Master System (Master System most powerful. 5200 least powerful. NES sells most)
  • SNES vs Genesis vs Neo Geo (Neo Geo most powerful. Genesis least powerful. SNES sells most)
  • Saturn vs PS1 vs N64 (N64 most powerful. Saturn least powerful. PS1 sells most)
  • GCN vs PS2 vs Xbox (Xbox most powerful. PS2 least powerful & sells most)
  • Wii vs PS3 vs 360 (PS3 most powerful. Wii least powerful & sells most, at this point)

Of course, there are also a lot of inbetween gen consoles (3DO, Jaguar, CDi, 7800, etc), but none of those ever seem to take off.

From technical standpoint Wii U can run a lot of games that will be available on PS4 of course less res., less pretty, but Nintendo fans do not care much about that cause Wii U is about Nintendo 1st & 2nd party games + some good 3rd party titles and thats enough for me. We might not see best Fifa game, but PS4 players will never play Zelda Wii U, Mario Kart, new Xenoblade games either.

http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/PlayStation_3#PlayStation_3_sal...

PS3 was between 5.63 and 10.53 million at this point, and that console had an amazing comeback to its 80 million and counting, Wii U has to do more with roughly equivalent hardware the better part of a decade later. Xbox 360 had also sold far more by its year-mark and you better believe the Wii-train did.

Hmmmm...

Seriously though, I think the Wii U can do Gamecube numbers, but let's not go crazy.
