Power = generation
NDS = N64 in handheld form

Therefor, NDS = 5th gen

Also, 3DS is gen 6 and PSP is also gen 6 (comparable to gap PS2 & Xbox). Of course, the Wii is also 6th gen. And the Vita is 7th gen. Nintendo said the Wii U is 7th gen themselves (but only in a secret email to me by Iwata himself).

Then is leaves the Master System. That's a 10th generation console. It's so powerful and the graphics are so good, it went full circle and even went past NES graphics twice!

Anyway, I hope you guys learned a wise lesson from this. Generations are defined by power, and only power. And depending on if you're stronger or weaker than your father, then you are either a generation older or younger than them.

i know you're trying to do some form of satire, but i actually agree with this part.

also it should be noted that generations of people, are different than generations of objects.

d : a type or class of objects usually developed from an earlier type

- http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/generation

it could be argued that the WiiU is in the class of consoles as the PS3 & Xbox 360 due to it's graphical power. it could also be argued that the WiiU is same class as the next Xbox & PS4 due the time period of it's release. both ways do have some arbitrariness, though going by time period is much more arbitrary.

My little brother is a different gen because he's weaker and dumber than me.
