PS3 officially is a last gen console

The Wii U is less powerful than the PS3, the PS3 is next generation, Wii U is last gen.

Next gen has begun. How does it feel?


Wii U is 7 years too late to be called next gen. Can't call a system that is less powerful next gen.

On November 30th I'll have all three current gen consoles. Won't be all three next gen whenever they all come out.


I had enough last week to pay for one, but too many damn releases snapped up my change :)


Don't talk to me about money :( You can have mine in exchange for a regular Wii. Still not buying any U games yet.

For some reason it says I didn't reply to your msg. Heading off. But I'll fix that when I get back. Feel free to tell me to **** off >_>

Generation doesn't have anything to do with power. It's the time period when all manufacturers are in competition with a certain product. Nintendo created the weakest product last-gen so have jumped ahead this gen. This means that they'll be getting 360 ports until the PS4/720 come out, and will struggle to handle them.

The Wii U is more powerful but not by any significant amount. It is still 'next gen' by definition alone.

Reviews are a metric of quality. Sales are a metric of popularity.

I'm a Nintendo and Sony Fan, I like Nintendo's exclusive's and Sonys Exclusives, I have my Wii and PS3 side by side at most times and before too long it will probably be Wii U and PS4.

Having said that, i don't know where you got information from that the Wii U is less powerful, it's actually more powerful then PS3, but that doesn't matter as I still enjoy retro games, just saying you're wrong it's all...

And as for bad ports like mass effect 3, that's ea's fault, not nintendo's.
