Invalid comparison. Sega was broke when they released the Dreamcast. Nintendo is nowhere close to being broke. WiiU has no chance of being a second Dreamcast since if all else fails they'll be able to actually support it themselves.


This. The Dreamcast didn't fail for what you may think it did. Sure, those reasons played a part but the main reason the Dreamcast failed was because of Sega's handling of the Saturn.

Nintendo would need the WIiU and WiiU-2 or whatever to flop horribly to go broke. And then for no one to buy 3DS and 4DSes.

SEGA blew it between the Genesis and Dreamcast. They released the add on 32x which was quite expensive for consumers back then along with the SEGA CD add on. The Saturn was difficult for developers to work with as well. SEGA of America and SEGA of Japan were having internal problems which led to Sonic X-treme being canceled and no true Sonic game during Crash Bandicoot and Super Mario 64.

The Dreamcast was not a failure, it was quite ahead of its time and is arguably SEGAs most creative quality period. SEGA did not have enough money to stay in hardware and had to bow out. Nintendo however has some insurance to fall back on if things become real bad.

I plan on getting a Wii U eventually but I do fear for Nintendo in this next gen race.

*if Nintendo does bow out i'm hoping SEGA jumps in and they fuse to create Nintega!!! ha
