Is this thing gonna flop?

No. Not a chance. It'll be successful. As successful as Wii? Probably not, but will it fail? No way.

^ What Jtanna said- I'm thinking it will most likely be first sales wise next gen because of the head start and the likely smaller difference in specs between competition (unlike this gen with the Wii).

It won't flop sadly even though it really should. It's another console based off of a ridiculous gimmick, it's nowhere near as powerful as the next generation Sony/Microsoft consoles will be, and I have a feeling Nintendo is once again going to make a grab at the casual market and alienate third party developers. It just doesn't seem to me that Nintendo is learning the lessons that should have slapped them upside the head with the Wii.

Could you help those of us without a time machine out and list those specs of Sony/Microsoft's next gen systems?

He doesn't need one, it's common sense. While Sony/Microsoft may not build uber machines (no one will pay 700 for a console right now) they will be more powerful then Nintendo.

Chances are they won't be gimmick based since the kinect isn't blowing the world away (even though it sold well but seriously what games are there to play that aren't broken and frustrating, dancing games aside) and the move was an outright failure. Sony/Microsoft are doing just fine doing what they are doing right now. So when they don't really need to pointlessly try to make a gimmick work then they can spend all there money on the guts of there machine, instead of R&D on a gimmick.

Also when your competitor has set such a low bar for you to jump they would be fools to not take that minor hop and surpass them. It's just easy marketing fluff "2-4X as powerful as the WiiU!" All next gen consoles have to do it manage 1080p native and some higher details. To the people who haven't seen a PC game in the last 5 years it will be a quantum leap for them.
