The word Next gen is thrown around a lot these days, it has pretty much lost it's meaning and has become a gimmick. The Wii U released after the Wii/PS3/360 and is more powerful, even if it isn't a massive jump. The actual system "feels" next gen since it's doing things previous generations have not.

But in a matter of speaking, yes I consider the Wii U next gen.

I see what you mean, and i agree about the feel of the system. I just worry that when people look back on the system, it will be in a position similar to the Dreamcast, kind of stuck between generations.

Depends how you define "next-gen" as its tossed about so loosely these days. Since its a new console that came out years after the so-called "last-gen" systems and is more powerful than they are (even if its not a huge leap) then yes, I see no way it is not the start of the next generation of gaming consoles. Kind of a no brainer really.

Next gen? The consumer models have been available for about 6 months now. That makes it current gen Nintendo and current gen console tech.

In fall/winter it will still be current gen Nintendo tech but it will become last gen console tech after Sony and Microsoft's new consoles are released to consumers.

Just to clarify i dont consider it next gen. We can argue the semantics of what next gen is but you know what i mean when i say next gen.

Uhh...doesn't really matter what people consider the Wii U to be, it is an eighth generation gaming system along with PS4 and 720.
Just when they think they have all the answers, I change the questions.

Im talking in terms of power, dreamcast came out in the same gen as ps1 and n64 technically.

It's an 8th Gen console, so yes, it is next gen.
