Mario will never be considered next gen. And a tablet for a controller with a 4 hour battery life sucks. At least you won't see cod players play for 4 hours + anymore.


Except Mario has been considered next gen for the past 7 generations.

Again, a console generation is defined by the time era in which it is released, not the technology.

The Wii is a 7th gen console, and the Wii U is an 8th gen.

Deal with it.

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.
.

I wish it felt more like it.

Do you do anything other than whine?

it's called, "charging while you play", which you can do with the PS3 DS3, which I do, with it being plugged into my laptop.

You really don't understand what 'next generation' means, do you?

You ever hear of 'the next generation of royals'? When they're but an infant? By your logic, they're not next gen, but previous gen

There are no generations. Just consoles and games. ;)

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

So it is out and its not next gen console since it is not using new tech never seen, everything already available. NIntendo fanboys would make you think this is a big thing, but Sony/MS don't care so why should we.

I would like to congratulate NIntendo for finally joining the 21st century with the wii-u, should have done it last year with the wii. And having a console thats in HD.

Young heroes between the ages of 12-17 make RPG and other video games better then older heroes 18-21 and over.

I think we need a class on how to understand the word 'next'. It really seems to baffle folk here.

Now since the xbox spanked the PS2, spec wise, does that mean it actually existed in it's own generation therefore the PS2 never actually "beat" it?
