How can you say the Wii U isn't next gen because of power...

When we don't even know the true potential of the GPGPU AND when no one truly knows the specs of the PS4/720. Its all speculation. The Wii U could be what the Gamecube was to the Xbox. In other words just a bit less powerful but not game changing.

Everything suggests WiiU can't do much more than PS3 and Xbox360. If it can do allot more then Nintendo better get to showing us, because I ain't seen squat.

if the leaked specs are to be believed, PS4 and 720 won't be doing much more, either.

Gaming is like a pair of boobs - Sony and Microsoft fight over whos boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them - Walkiethrougie

If Wii-U, PS3 and 360 are showing the games actually all perform similar, why would Sony and MS bother releasing their new consoles when they will just be able to do similar things to their current systems even though its 7 years later?

Should we say this when you use one of your Alt. accounts as well?

You lie. That said you can say it's pathetic for a next gen system because it's roughly on par with last gen without lying.

I am open to any possibility but it is unclear why Sony and Microsoft will launch brand new formats to replace their current many million selling consoles they have out now and not significantly improve the capabilities of the next gen. They may as well continue to support what they have and satisfy their many million current customers.

Ok, so we know for a fact now that the U isnt much more powerful than the PS3/360. Are you saying you actually believe that the PS4/720 will basically be close to the same power as their previous versions????????? LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Never happened in the history of videogames. Every single time a new console comes out, its MUCH more powerful than its previous version. The U is much more powerful than the Wii, which isnt saying much, which is why the U is right on part with the PS3/360. And FYI, the PS4/720 will be much more powerful than the previous versions. And where would that put them? MUCH more powerful than the U.

Probably closer to what modern high end gaming PCs are doing. The U is not a modern high end gaming PC. Not even close.

wii wasn't much more powerful then gamecube. But the whole why didn't they continue supporting gamecube argument doesn't work since gamecube wasn't very healthy, both ps3 and 360 are very healthy and there wouldn't be a problem continuing support for them.
