The 8th generation of home consoles has begun with the Wii U. I'll be looking forward to Microsoft and Sonys new console in the future.

Now before people say the Wii U is not 8th gen because of hardware, a console generation is not determined by tech, its by the time period the system is released.

Who cares what "generation" a console is? The Intellivision was a 16 bit console, for crying out loud, and you don't see people saying that Mattel product was a new "generation" compared to the Atari 2600 or Odyssey2 or Fairchild Channel F..."generations" are arbitrarily assigned and not really worth discussing.

The WiiU is a next-gen console by definition alone. That's it.

Jesus, first the DmC boards and now this. What's it like being so incredibly bitter, jaded and inept all at once, Symbiote?
