The future look bad for the WiiU but they can always throw Pokemon, Mario's and another Zelda game to make people buy it.

And now the Wii U will come in third place, because it's so underpowered.

PS1, PS2, DS, 3DS, Wii say hello.

The gap between the PS1 and its competitors, and the PS2 and its competitors, was small enough that it became insignificant, and it received ports. Nintendo has always dominated the handheld space. But I don't know if you were around for the Wii's last like 4 years, because it would get like 5 good games a year, then in the past 2 years, it got next to nothing. The Wii was a sucess because of the Casual market, but with the advent of Smartphones, casuals don't need nor want a console for their gaming fix.

PS2 CPU was less than half the speed of the Xbox in MHz.
PS1 had half the RAM of the N64.

These are the types of things ppl are calling the Wii U weak about.

^I'd educate you about specs and how a system doesn't depend entirely on numbers alone but the architecture's synergy w/ its components, but it will fall on deaf ears (and a waste of my time).

At present time, yes. It's a humongous disaster. Can it change over time? Possibly. I don't see developers flocking over, sadly.

Who's to say there won't be, people are really forgetting the system has only been out 6 months now. I'm pretty sure the ps3, Wii, and 360 library's took time to complete.. and I'm pretty sure this will be the case for future systems as well. Just give it time before being so quick to down it.

Good lord I'm happy the Salem witch trials came before our generation, seeing how fast people can just assume something from nothing. Mass hysteria at its finest I guess...
