The "Brown Box" was a prototype for the Magnavox Odyssey.

Okay, I consider it the first one technically. :)

Wii U being essentially current gen hardware with a touch screen controller is just what Nintendo did with the Wii. Once there are some better games and a price drop I'll certainly think about getting one but as for performance Wii U is not likely going to be comparable to Sony and Microsoft's consoles.

I did consider getting one and likely would have had it had a blu ray drive so I opted for a PS3 as a cheaper alternative with a slew of good games. I have been pretty happy with my new console and it has gotten more play than my 360 or Wii have in a long time.

So what will people say if:

A) Wii U still becomes the basis for all multiplat titles if the userbase is huge enough, thus meaning the other consoles just get higher res or tweaked ports.

B) The other consoles "aren't" insanely more powerful than Wii U and ports are fine?

More wishful thinking.

Wii-U isn't selling enough. The consoles will be a generational leap over Wii-U making "A" irrelevant. Since we are using our crystal balls. What if then?

It was a what if. No crystal balls needed for a what if, right? Or do we need to roll a 20 sided die to just ask things now? As for not selling well? It outsold the PS360 launches. Please tell me how that's doing poorly?

I don't think of it as Wii-U is doing poorly, more than I think the developers who actually make the games have more fun making them on more powerful tech, which I believe will be much more powerful than PS3 or 360.
