People say the Wii U will fail because it's underpowered, they are wrong.

Just look throughout gaming history, the least powerful console has most of the time, come out on top.

Master System was more powerful than NES, NES was the victor.
N64 and Saturn were more powerful than the Playstation, Playstation won.
Gamecube and Xbox were more powerful than PS2, PS2 won.
PS3 and 360 are MUCH more powerful than the Wii, Wii won.
PSP was more powerful than the DS, DS destroyed it.
PS Vita is more powerful the 3DS, 3DS is winning.

The ONLY exception to this rule was the SNES and Genesis, were the SNES was more powerful and it indeed sold more, though than may have something to do with the popularity of the original NES.

The Wii U is going to do fine.

The sales were so equal in generation four that I don't think anybody really won that generation.

Saturn on the list lol. More powerful than ps1? maybe on paper but as I remember the hardware was an unoptimized mess.

Wii had a gimmick that helped it 'win'.

Wii U doesn't, and is way behind in tech. If it wins I'll be absolutely amazed.

And how exactly is the gamepad not a gimmick?

Dreamcast was stronger than the PS2?

Right, it wasnt about specs that made those systems successful.

It was the console with the largest 3rd party support that came out on top in that list.

Which system(s) have the largest 3rd party support this new generation? hm?

You know what's funny on that list? PS1 and PS2 dominated Nintendo.

Wii barely got lucky cause Sony got arrogant with PS3, If Sony somehow redeem themselves in PS4. Then Nintendo can only dream of ever beating Sony again cause Sony so far has dominated Nintendo in the console wars.
