@TheAdza Absolutely agreed. They need new I.P too, though. They need to look at what's big on other platforms, the Gears of Wars and Uncharteds and say "we can do those better."

I really, really don't want to buy a Wii U only for it to suffer droughts. I want it to be my only console for at least 3 years before picking up another console for their exclusives and Nintendo really need to make sure that they can deliver.

The graphics I've seen on Wii U are absolutely terrific. Just look at the new Monolith game...is that not proof that the system can produce fantastic visuals? Jesus, just look at the gameplay for God of War Ascension and The Last of Us on a SIX year old console. If I didn't know better I could have easily been convinced those were next gen titles, honestly.

It's all about the creativity of the games now. More power can certainly allow for developers to allow their creativity to flourish more but I really feel that even with the PS3/360/Wii U specs, developers have all the power they need to produce their visions. I don't doubt that games on the next gen Sony and Microsoft machines will go visually above and beyond what we've seen on PS3/360 so far but how much do better textures and higher poly counts matter any more? Not a great deal, I don't think.

The best I can hope for this generation is that the Wii U rests in a PS2 style situation, as mentioned in the article. Weak compared to the others but still gets the multi platform games, albeit not as good looking. Would not be surprised to see third parties doing the same old song dance we came to see on Wii, though. Wouldn't be surprised at all.
