The Xbox 360 now officially a last gen console.

I find it laughable how the Wii-U is considered "next-gen", when its performance is on par with the XB 360 & PS3, and in some cases beneath them.
The best looking Wii-U game (to me) is ZombiU, and it is kinda blurry and doesn't look any better than current gen games.
The Wii-U has the fancy tablet/controller, and that's pretty much it.

Atari and Sega just released new 2600s and Genesis models this year, are they now next generation as well TC?

considiring the fact that a major part of any console(cpu) is actually STRONGER in the 360 than in the wiiu,Hell No. The wii u is current gen just like wiii is last gen.

Generation has never meant hardware power, folks. Stop being stupid.


Sure, keep pushing your head-canon on us, symbiote. Maybe, just maybe, that'll change people's minds. Except not.

The Wii U shouldn't even be classified as mid gen(ala Dreamcast...true next gen system that was quickly destroyed by the compitition) I don't want to hear this graphics aren't everything BS because I guarantee if the next Xbox or PS come out that are at least twice as powerful as they are now, third party developing is going straight to the crapper just like the Wii with all its crappy ports.

It's all just semantics and there's no point in arguing. Maybe the Wii U is the start of the next generation of consoles, and maybe it isn't. Either way it doesn't change the fact that it contains essentially the same tech as PS3 and 360. Call it next-gen or call it current-gen, it doesn't matter. It doesn't change what the console is and is not capable of doing.

Whoah.... Whoah! I just heard the Wii U's CPU is much weaker than the CPUs in the PS3 and the 360. If this is true how the hell could Wii U be considered next gen? It's just laughable to call it that.
isn't hearing technically a dimension? so this should be called the 4DS. - I_Always_Die
