Its next gen for Nintendo. They stagnated with the Wii as that was only a side grade to the Game Cube.

Nintendo is operating a full Generation behind.

If generation was defined by power, then mankind would be going backwards.

So is Sony since they only had 1 out 3 powerful home consoles. Maybe 2 out of 4 if the PS4 is another power Juggernaut.

So you're saying it's not next gen?
Because it definitely is not the next stage in development of video gaming hardware.
It is too similar to current gen to say with a straight face that it is the next stage of video gaming hardware.
