the problem is that the PS4 and 720 are most likely not just going to be slight improvements(otherwise why buy them?) they'll be the PS3/360 and wii fiasco all over again and real gamers will likely be shafted on the wii U


No. It will be the exact opposite of what the internet says like it is every time.

PSP will crush DS = wrong
PS3 will destroy 360 = wrong
Wii will fail = wrong
Kinect will fail = wrong
Vita will thrash 3DS = wrong

Everything the majority of forum posters, analysts and gaming press believe the exact opposite has happened.

To me the media saying that Wii U will struggle against PS4 and 720 only confirms to me that at least one of them will be victim's of their own selling points.


I don't know about you but if i would ask hypothetical question about which would they much rather take if they would get free, wii or ps3 and everysingle one would answer ps3. I really don't enjoy any system more if it sells more. Wii sold a lot but it was still considered almost flop by many gamer.

Is beer better than very high grade whiskey? Beer sells more but it doesn't make it better than 500 usd whiskey.


I would choose the Wii. Everything that interests me on the PS3 I can get on my PC. Also, both Beer and Whiskey suck. :P


Well Mr. Nintendo Fanboy, everything that interests you on the Wii you can get on PC as well.


Mario?
Zelda?
Metroid?
F-Zero?
Animal Crossing?
Fire Emblem?
Monster Hunter?
No More Heroes?
Punch-Out?

Soo, where can we get those games on PC?

Oh, Line here considers Dolphin to be a legitimate way of playing Wii games on the PC.

Also, for future reference, if you like the Wii more than the PS3, you're a fanboy.

The way I see it, none of these consoles are going to be "affordable". Wii U won't be less than $300...that's why Iwata is always saying the controller jacked up the price, he is prepping you guys for a semi-expensive price. I personally believe it could be $350, $400, MAYBE we'll get lucky and it'll be $300, but I wouldn't call that an impulse buy. Many developers have said the Wii U is around the same or slightly better than PS360, but things like this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQB9ds2AYwM

and this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcMRkyoHKeA

can't be done on current gen systems, and if the Wii U is only a little better, than it ain't getting them either. I don't know if this has been said yet, but since the price of the Wii U will go up due to the controller, and if NextBox and PS4 use that extra price for another leap in graphics, I can easily see the two being powerful enough to keep Wii U out of multiplats while being priced in the 300$-400$ range.

If that happens, Nintendo will be a generation behind, again. And likely locked out of multiplats due to inferior tech. I'm waiting to see all the consoles before I make a purchase because with the stuff they've been showing and teasing us with(see the videos above), I expect another leap in graphics...and I don't think the Wii U will be up there with the other two graphically.

This is all my opinion of course.
