For those that have the console and have been playing for awhile, do you still feel that this console is gonna last for a while? I'm still up in the air about getting a Wii U. It seems like the Wii and Gamecube lost it's glare after a few years. Do you think the Wii U is a next gen console that is here to stay and will get the same 3rd party support as the next xbox and playstation?

I don't mean the hardware lasting, I mean will it still get the same 3rd party support as the other next gen consoles in 5-6 years? Or will it fade out early like the gamecube and wii did because the hardware and features could not keep up?

I'd be willing to bet the Wii U will last longer than all the previous systems. Just look at Wii. it was outdated right from the start and lasted almost 6 years. As long as support is consistant Wii U will be fine.

That's a good point. That's all I'm worried about. I want to be able to play the newest CoD, Fifa, Madden, or whatever new 3rd party games come out in 5 or 6 years. But I want the same version that is on the next xbox and next playstation.

If the next Sony/MS consoles perform well and make the Wii U the Wii of the gen, then Nintendo would most likely jump early again. This gen could have lasted another couple of years, but the Wii was a sink for Nintendo unless they decided to rush out yearly Mario and Zelda games to offset the crap that was developed on the Wii.
