So I'll get right to it. Note that some stuff isnt relevant so it won't be included (like plays PS1 games). Also some real minor stuff I won't mention (PS3 supports printers!). Note that PS3 released in 2006, Wii U 2012. Here we go...

* Wii U can't rip CDs to the system. Can't transfer any music to the system. Doesn't allow you to use your own music in game. Wii U obviously hates music.

* Wii U can't play DVDs or Blu Ray discs. No form of movie playback aside from Netflix/Hulu etc.

* Account tied to the system on Wii U, not the person. Games only downloadable on one system per account.

* PSN offers downloadable movies to rent or own. The prices suck but the option is there.

* PSN offers Playstation Plus, a premium service that offers free games and special discounts. As well as automatic downloads and cloud storage for game saves.

* Wii U doesnt allow the use of Bluetooth headsets.

* No trophy/achievement system on Wii U.

* PS3 allows you to rip your digital photos to your system, for viewing and altering on the big screen.

* PS3 browser allows you to download certain files like music or movies. Although Wii U browser is much superior obviously.

* PS3 models offer much more storage space via HDD out of the box than Wii U, which almost requires you purchase additional external HDD.

* PS3 lets you play games in 3D, if supported by the game and your TV.

* PS3 has a digital optical out port for home sound systems, and supports Dolby formats.

* No ethernet port built in on Wii U, additional purchase required for that functionality.

* PS3 allows downloads for some 6th gen games (PS2). No GCN games to download on Wii U.

* PS3 has all the latest 3rd party big game releases, like Bioshock, DMC, MGR, DS3 etc.

* DLC is a lock on PS3. Usually doesn't release for Wii U games.

I'm sure I missed some, but really, the list is quite long as is.

He's a little insecure that's all.

You're not wrong, TC. The PS3 does offer a lot more than the Wii U in terms of software, services, and functionality, but this probably would have been better posted in one of the many "Wii U is too expensive" threads as opposed to making an entirely new topic about it.

While everything here is true, you are missing a few things:

1. Nintendo

2. I will say it again(who knows, maybe I can make this topic span to 69 posts like the last one >.>)

Sony doesn't have enough hate.

And you know what


It never will.

The point is he is saying the Wii U should have had some or most of these features. I own both a Wii U and PS3 and its so sad to call a Wii U next gen.

Even though Wii U graphics are slightly better than PS3 i still think the PS3 is more "next gen" than the Wii U.

I typed that on my Wii U. I just now realized how many features the Wii U is lacking compared to a console that is so old, figured I would bring it up.

It's called updates and not all systems are the same.

Oh dear. If the PS3's agitation of the 360 board isn't enough...
I can't believe I have to waste my signature to tell people New Super Mario Bros. could be a lot better.
