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.


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


I thought the Dreamcast was pretty comparable to the PS2 excluding the lack of dvd playability. Do you now consider the PS2 suddenly the same gen as the PS1 and N64 or between them and the GC and XBOX generation along with the Dreamcast?

Dreamcast is sixth gen, as it succeeds Saturn

How is this so hard for people to grasp? O_O

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.


Are you serious? Oh my god, I think my life is now changed forever.


Oh he's being sarcastic, how cute.


I know, right? He's adorable.


Bahh!?!?! How personalities you got living in there?

But in all seriousness, no. Wii U is current gen now that it's out. "Next-gen" systems now include PS5, XBox 4, and Nintendo's next console.

Power isn't what defines "generation".

Which brings us to the Dreamcast. It wasn't the same generation as the PS1 and the N64. The Saturn, which you seem to have forgotten about, was part of that generation. The Dreamcast just happened to come a year before the PS2. That's the system that Sega was trying to head off at the pass, so to speak.
