The Dreamcast was home to some of the best games and it did poorly...

Way to be butthurt about the reality of the Wii
Go find me a list of every wii game released, and lets do the math. It was nothing but shovelware with about 15 AAA solid games in its entire lifetime and pretty much all of them were first party.
And for the record 360 had the highest failure rate for a console in history. At one point it was over 60%, and thats just people that reported it and participated in polls about it. No doubt if we included people that are poor with money that just went out and bought another not reporting it or sending it in, that number would probably be closer to 80% at the peak of its hardware failure period. I didn't buy a 360 for a reason. The hardware is cheaply made garbage, plus it had no real exclusives worth a damn

This is an objective person and this board needs more of those. Thank you for this post!
(And no, I am not sarcastic this time)
Now let's sacrifice some chickens! :D
IMO the problem with Dreamcast is that it came out a year early which helped but a year later it was totally outclassed. Plus there was no DVD player or any other features that would have helped it stay relevant. The Wii is a bit more powerful than current gen consoles but the focus is on what the Wii U can do as opposed to graphics power. It's a question of if Wii U can get decent 3rd party support. The next gen consoles are going to be a marginal improvement, my PC is already more powerful than the PS4 but I'll still get a PS4 because of exclusives. I have a Wii U because it does things that other consoles can't do.

The DC also had an amazing arcade stick, I just remember the green buttons and ball.

No Dreamcast games that I can think of used AA. They just ran at a full 640x480 resolution, whereas PS2 games typically ran much lower. Early PS2 games like Ico ran as low as 512x224, while even major titles such as MGS2, MGS3, and the God of War games ran at 512x448, well below Dreamcast standards. The use of antialiasing in PS2 games was just a bandaid to try and lessen the affect that the lower native resolution had on image quality, a lack of antialiasing wasn't the reason for the jaggy appearance to begin with.

Why would it be different for the Wii U?
it is totally different, because as you said - Dreamcast actually had good games...
Best games? Like what? Power Stone?
Alright, there's Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure 1&2, Soul Caliber, Shenmue... umm, Seaman?
It's just, even though they're all great for Sega's standards, and much better than what they churned out for the Saturn, they still don't come anywhere close to the franchise games that Nintendo releases... Mario is always going to do well, so is Zelda, Donkey Kong, and Pokemon, and better than any Sega franchise could hope for. Nintendo can live off of these franchises for decades, much more than Sega ever could.

The Dreamcast gets better games than the Wii U. I'm talking about NOW. Yes new Dreamcast games are still coming out, amazing I know. . This is 13 years after its initial release.
Despite being discontinued early the Dreamcast has an excellent library, very arcade oriented, and has near cult status.
Did I say that, or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me??

I bought a Dreamcast at launch. But my friends were all like "teh Playstation2 omgz must wait for that"
Imo the Dreamcast was superior but nobody cared because they only knew the Ps1.
