i dont get it


The Wii U can win at jeopardy, can't say the same for the ps3/360




The 360 and PS3 won at jeopardy 6 years ago.


Too bad they lost 7th gen.


I wouldn't say they've lost yet. This current gen is still going strong. I believe eventually they'll both pass Wii sales.

The wii sold because of the controller and it's initial appeal. It didn't sell because of its games. Without Nintendo developed games and minigame collections, that sold well despite be really bad, the Wii became a novelty after 2010. That's being generous. Everyone was trying to get rid of their Wii after the "awe" of a new way to control a game wore off.


Having said all that. The 360 has the best attach rate this gen followed by the PS3. The games are just simply better on the other consoles. Which is way more important than anything else.


A console shouldn't start losing momentum after 4 years in a 7 year cycle. Which is exactly what the Wii did and it's exacty what the Wii U is going to do. The 360 and PS3 are still selling great.


PS. I know Nintendo makes a lot of money and the others don't. As a consumer that doesn't see any of the profit my main concern is having more to play. If the Wii U repeats what the Wii did. In 2016 people are going to be looking for a way to ditch their consoles.

So it most likely runs anywhere from 147-166 Pikmin?

I henceforth proclaim that the power of CPUs must now be measured in Pikmin.

Man, I completely forgot about that guy, and then you guys go quoting him.

*sigh*

Now I'm all depressed again thinking about how obtuse some people can be.

How old is Watson CPU tech anyway?


Nearly as old as IBMSherlock.
