Do you still feel this is a console that will last until the next gen?

For those that have the console and have been playing for awhile, do you still feel that this console is gonna last for a while? I'm still up in the air about getting a Wii U. It seems like the Wii and Gamecube lost it's glare after a few years. Do you think the Wii U is a next gen console that is here to stay and will get the same 3rd party support as the next xbox and playstation?

It's Nintendo in freakin HD! What more do we need at this point? Super Dooper Hyper ultra HD? Damn people are graphics whores.

I don't mean the hardware lasting, I mean will it still get the same 3rd party support as the other next gen consoles in 5-6 years? Or will it fade out early like the gamecube and wii did because the hardware and features could not keep up?

I'd be willing to bet the Wii U will last longer than all the previous systems. Just look at Wii. it was outdated right from the start and lasted almost 6 years. As long as support is consistant Wii U will be fine.

That's a good point. That's all I'm worried about. I want to be able to play the newest CoD, Fifa, Madden, or whatever new 3rd party games come out in 5 or 6 years. But I want the same version that is on the next xbox and next playstation.

If the next Sony/MS consoles perform well and make the Wii U the Wii of the gen, then Nintendo would most likely jump early again. This gen could have lasted another couple of years, but the Wii was a sink for Nintendo unless they decided to rush out yearly Mario and Zelda games to offset the crap that was developed on the Wii.
