Nintendo's upcoming game console, the Wii U, is not really a 'next-generation' platform!
'The Wii U is a pretty ambitious undertaking,' Pachter told Industry Gamers. 'It's a new console, with new controls and architecture, but it's not quite 'next' generation.'
Nintendo recently being slammed in the media by market analyst's, maybe because their sales are down, and the Wii is slipping in overall marketshare.
But now they are also pissing on the new Wii-U, claiming even tho it has HD graphics, it is not 'next-gen', and everything will be just bad ports from the other existing consoles like Xbox 360 and PS3, no exclusive ground-breaking new games. (Well, not from third-party that is forsure, they forgot Nintendo loves their own internal brands!)
But then Nintendo pulled that plan the last time, the Wii was behind the others, but it worked sales were a hit, and the shovelware of titles was mind-blogging.
Will it work the second time around, so what if it is fad and dies out and collects tons of dust in the living room (My Wii does), as long as you rack it in at first, and shovel out the titles cheap and fast, I can get Wii titles for alot less in stores then other platforms.
Still no date from Nintendo on when Wii U is coming, as this Xmas it is just planning on little more color (a Blue Wii, with no Gamecube support), and some hot titles!
