no he was questioning their INNOVATION. Nintendo is KING of the failed peripherals. on top of everything he listed there's things like the virtual boy, gameboy printer, etc. the wiimote added nothing to gaming, even they moved away from it with this, this pad doesn't look like it adds anything, all they do is create pointless "innovation" instead of just focusing on quality
The wii mote inspired playstation move and Kinect though

this is literally the only place that i've seen call WiiU a next gen console. bx is delusional.

that being said, there's nothing wrong with getting a WiiU. i'll pick it up when there's more games. i really want to play Scribblenauts Unlimited and ZombiU though.

people still trying to say that it isn't next gen? So the fact that it's the first part of the 8th generation of consoles doesn't make it next gen? As for graphics its gotten ports and is just beginning its life cycle you're not going to see anything mind boggling until devs get down and dirty with it.

but what dev that isn't being paid by Nintendo to do so is about to get down and dirty with a console that's about to be crushed by MS and Sony in a year's time? a.ssuming the current spec rumors for PS4 and 720 are true, those consoles are looking to have 4-8 gigs of ram. Wii has 2 with one currently dedicated to the OS. Realistically you're looking at games that will utilize at the minimum 4x as much memory as the Wii U.

Wii U is Wii all over again. How you can see it as any different is wishful thinking at this point.

wether you think nintendo sucks or not is irrelevant

Nintendo is the sole creative mind of the video game universe meaning while they do make crappy innovations they are still innovations. Without Nintendo the other 2 giants are worthless because they don't think outside of the box nor do they have the guts to try something different. Sony and microsoft however are great at making old nintendo sh*t better.

The older guys here that were raised on Nintendo better pray they never close up shop cause its gonna be 1000x worst than when we lost funcoland.

You young cats probably gonna think the sentence above is not in english

Funcoland. These teenage Nintendo haters have no clue. We need to set some rules to this thread. If you never had to do any of these things, then don't post here.

1) Blow a cartridge to get it to work correctly. (Pause)

2) Develop a system for blowing on a cartridge to get it to work correctly. (Pause Again)

3) Use a second cartridge to hold the cartridge that you want to play, down in the system.

4) Used alcohol pads to clean the cartridge.

5) Thrown away the black sleeve that Nintendo cartridges came in.

6) Paused Mike Tyson punch while you ran to the playground to get witnesses, so all your friends would believe that you beat Mike Tyson.

7) Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start

8) 007-373-5963

9) Circled Super Nintendo in ToysRUs Big Book, or KB Toys circular and sat in on mom's pillow.

10) Had to borrow your friends power cord, cause yours had a shortage in it.

11) Stayed in the house for hours, when Street f!ghter 2 came out on Super Nintendo.

Nintendo is not as big of a company as Microsoft and Sony so they cant afford huge losses when making consoles, so instead of aiming to please fu*k n*ggas like you all, they aim for the whole family. The Wii(97.18 million units sold) outsold both 360(70.2 million) and PS3(70 million), they could careless whether 10 hardcore gamers will buy their sh*t cause they know 3 families will buy it, and have to buy 5 controllers for the family and every game each family member wants, and them n*ggas who think nintendo aint change the game need to leave

with the wiiU, nintendo has finally joined this generation. before this they were off in some lane they carved out completely to themselves.

i define generation by power of the system. not the release dates. I will always a.ssociate the WiiU with the Xbox 360 and the PS3, not the consoles that come next.

as far as im concerned, nintendo is late to a party everyone is about to leave. but like i said before, nothing wrong with getting a WiiU.

Nintendo's $530 Million Loss
Publisher once again misses its sales estimates; pledges 3DS and Wii U will return it to profitablity.
by Richard GeorgeApril 26, 2012TweetNintendo continues to lose incredible sums of money, even as the company's new portable dominates the Japanese market and its reported losses were less than its previous estimates. For the 2011 fiscal year (April 2011 through March 2012), Nintendo posted a historic first-ever net loss of $530 million dollars.

Hardware sales didn't quite hit Nintendo's estimates posted just three months prior, which were themselves revised downward from previous expectations. Globally the Nintendo 3DS sold 13.51 million units, Wii sold 9.84 million units and the DS 'family' sold 5.1 million units. Previous estimates were 14 million 3DSs, 10 million Wiis and 5.5 million units DSs. Software sales for the year were 36 million, 102.37 million and 60.82 million units respectively (3DS, Wii and DS 'family').

Accompanying these results, Nintendo released this statement: "While [Nintendo] did post a loss for the recently completed fiscal year, the continuing momentum of the Nintendo 3DS and the global introduction of the highly-anticipated Wii U home console will drive the company back into profitability in the current year." In a separate release, the company forecast a net profit of $245 million for the upcoming year.

Nintendo further clarified that by the middle of its current fiscal year (approx. August 2012), the 3DS will no longer be sold below cost. The company noted New Super Mario Bros. 2, Animal Crossing and a new Brain Age series title are on the way, with the latter coming to Japan sometime this summer.
Nintendo executives will be discussing the company's financial performance as well as plans for the future in an investor's presentation the morning of April 27 in Japan (that's tomorrow afternoon PT here in the United States). Stay tuned to IGN for any breaking news.
