No, it's not next gen. It is current gen. PS3 and 360 are the previous gen.

Generations are about time, not hardware. So yes.

Current Gen. As will 720 and PS4 be when they release.

Hardware does not define a generation.

Not changing this signature until a new F-Zero is announced. *started 6/18/10*
F-Zero > Mario Kart. If you disagree, it's because you're bad at F-Zero.

Except that is fact.....The Wii U is part of the Next Gen moniker ( Vita, 3ds, Wii U, PS4) that is currently out, thereby making it current gen.

The PS360 were current gen for a long, LONG time but people kept calling them Next gen...those people were incorrect. They've only since started calling them current gen to try and insult Nintendo, the Wii U, and the fans....they are still incorrect. Once PS4 and Xbox3 come out, they too, will be current gen.

When the 3DS launched, all systems before it became last gen, thus starting "next gen" ( meaning every system announced but yet to be released) and it became current gen.

( By the way, I know this can all get confusing, but timelines don't lie)

I love how people dont understand console generations

8th gen started with the 3DS, the Wii U its 8th gen (which is technically current gen, ps4 and 720 just havent released yet. PS3 and 360 are last gen)

So yes, its "next gen" but thats inaccurate because it is the current gen.
