PS3 officially is a last gen console

I feel the Wii-U isn't really a next gen console, the Wii was half a gen and the Wii-U is current gen

next gen begins...with a console equal to last gen consoles.


Next generation is the next generation, not the super high tech improved over the last.

The WiiU is next gen, and it's arrival is the beginning of it.

This. Nintendo FINALLY got into the HD console race? That's a joke, and I don't care if graphics don't matter. There's something to be said if you are slightly ahead of 7 year old consoles. I don't care how many screens you give me, either.

The Wii U might end up outselling the other next-gen consoles, just because it's Nintendo.... and that's a fact.

:D

DmC looks like a good game. I also enjoyed the latest Final Fantasy and Resident Evil games. I like video games.

What you feel and what actually is are 2 different things.

Based on the definition of a console generation, The Wii U is next gen.

New technologies, graphics, etc. are not what defines a console generation.

Consider how the current gen looked next to the last gen when they first dropped.

I have no doubt that the WiiU ends up making this gen look pretty bad by comparison, once devs get a hold of the technology.

There is no reason to get angry just because there are reviews coming out for games ported to the Wii U that say they got the quintessential version of the game; the PS4 will be out soon, perhaps as early as next year.

by the time that actually happens though, the next new things will be coming out for sony and MS. so as people are being amazed by the jump in technology for the ps4 and 720, I doubt many people are going to be saying "hey you know what the wii-u finally is pushing out things much prettier than the old ps3 could."
