It's so sad too. I would have bought the Vita, but feel that it's not living up to its potential.

I will not become the next Dreamcast. The Dreamcast was actually good.

Haha, burn!
But no, I think it'll hide its stride eventually. MAYBE the next GameCube, definitely not the next Wii. I'd say somewhere in between on the low end of the scale.

I belive it may be closer to the Virtual Boy...... Wait nevermind it would mean the Virtual Boy actually sold millions of units lol

So yeah it may/may not become the next Dreamcast. Who really knows, sales wise it is starting to look like it will be.

I think it'll be the next GameCube. A console you dust off twice a year to play the first party games.
Nintendo stock the day before Wii U was announced: 26,500
Nintendo stock today: 10,900

The Wii U's most likely path--if it gets games at the pace they're coming now (a good game about every month and a half)--is to end up like the N64 or GameCube: a system that does well enough to keep Nintendo going and keep itself on the market, but not a massive success like the Wii.
For those of you starting topics about the PS4, there's a PS4 board:

You're right to be afraid. At best it will be the next gamecube based on its current path, at worst the next dreamcast.

So...you're not. Well, at least we agree on something.

That's ridiculous. The Dreamcast was discontinued because of Sega being in a very bad state financially. Nintendo are nowhere near that level.
