    Um, I don't believe that. The Wii wasn't a "next gen" console, yet, it's still in first place sales wise.

    Price + games overshadows the term "next gen".

    Next gen is just a term for time.

    But how, when it has the same model base and lay out as the Wii, it is just a Wii 1.2 or 2.1 in which way you look at it

    It is not next gen by any means

    The Wii sucked lol it's the worst Nintendo console ever made, the Wii U is already almost about to surpass it with Wind Waker HD alone.

    I will say the Wii was the only Nintendo home console that never garnered interests for me. It was just too casual for my taste. I didn't want to play games with a motion control turned sideways to game. I want to pay on a controller without having to buy a real controller. IMO it focused to much on being a quick fix than being an actual true gaming console. They sold tons of them. I consulate Nintendo for that but I wasn't impressed.

    The last great Nintendo console for me was the N64. They never managed to top the insane game line up that console had. Even though I don't own a Wii U at present I can't help but showcase interest in many games for it. My son wants one for Christmas, and I plan on getting him one.

    Once they start to release some of the nintendo franchises people love they won't have a problem selling it. It just has no games and they are barely advertising the thing. the amount of people i've heard call the Wii U "that new Wii controller" is mind blowing. Nintendo probably expected it would sell itself.

    It's a shame really. It's quite a fun little console. 5 player Mario is quite a lot of fun and so are the Nintendo-world games, the ghost one comes to mind

    Windwaker is coming out soon and that is when i'll decide to jump into world Wii-U

    Yeah 64 was the peak for me as well. Although GC wasn't bad, it was no N64.

    Exactly. And unless I'm mistaken, the Wii U is capable of 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second (the increased resolution being the more important technical increase per console generation, in my opinion).

    The Wii U is fine in what it can do... it just has to do it.

    I don't like the Wii-U and never post here because of it. But even I'm a little shocked it was dropped this quickly. Just for history's sake and the big sales Nintendo brought them with the Wii..... I thought ASDA would stick it out at least a year just out of respect.

    It seems Wii-U will be the next Gamecube unless something drastically changes.

    MCV has an article saying Asda supports Nintendo and that they never stocked the Wii U in their 555 stores though they won't stock it again this year. :/

    They only sold 160k world wide in 3 months...


    Nintendo is now 200,000 units BEHIND where the Gamecube was at this point in it's lifecycle and the GC didn't even launch in Europe yet. The GC went on to sell 20 million consoles.
