I used to be a Nintendo fanboy, but then the PS1 came out and I learned that Nintendo isn't the only great company that can make games.


Must have not owned a Sega Genesis then.

Sales aside, the Wii was the 7th gen's Genesis/MD and the HD consoles were the 7th gen's SNES.

Yeah, well it wasn't. And the Wii U is what it is.

Shouldah, wouldah, couldah....sometimes you just need to accept reality for what it is, instead of what COULD HAVE been.

The power, not the tablet controller stuff.

No both. If it was like this exactly in 06 tablet and all, itwould have dominated.


Not sure if you are being serious...


Of course I'm serious. Yes I know theWii won anyway but just imagine if this thing came out as is in 06. Itwould stomp the other consoles since its pretty much them but with more features.

Kinda true actually.

However, you need to consider what the development cost would have been back then. WiiU would have been much more expensive than PS3/360, which could have had a large impact on its success...

It would have failed miserably.

In case you didn't know Gamecube sold about twice as much as Dreamcast.

Wi U would have been $500-600 back in 2005 and would have failed even more so than it's doing now.

Wii U really should have come out in 2010/2011 with HD Skyward Sword as launch title.

PS3 was 500-600. Yeah it didn't do too hot at first either but still.

Remains to be seen.

So currently no it isn't.

Unless computers now are what computers should have been when they were first released...which sounds and looks really stupid.

Like this topic.
