Wii U Will Not Be Behind Next Generation

Last generation, Nintendo's Wii went up against serious criticism concerning its capabilities, its interface, and its appeal - and then went on to become one of the most successful platforms of all time. Now Wii U faces a number of similar questions. With development costs rising sharply with each big technological leap, will Nintendo's philosophy of providing an inexpensive gateway to accessible quality content pave the way to success yet again?

A positive article on N4g about the Wii U with next to no buzz. How typical.

this article serves no purpose in the flame war between ps3 and 360.

Regardless of their lack of vision in taking the wii/u seriously...this article is exceptionally well written.

I actually hope none of the diehard ps3/360 fans come into this and try and spin it to their favor. This is an article for the diehard "gamers" not the fanboys.

Maybe its a generational thing as I grew up in the 80's with the 2600 on up. I have learned to embrace the changes hardware has made of the console years but never gave up on what mattered most. FUN!

Very good article, and I'm not just saying that because of the title. The author gave great insight into just how much development costs affects devs. I had no idea that 120 studios have closed down since 2006. Crazy.

"Be Behind", Stings...

(Sorry, too much LoZ:SS)

This is a Great article!
Thank you Emily Rogers & Alex Plant!

This is what I have been saying to the Power-Pushing/Huffing Trolls, just not as eloquently and exhaustively.

Everyone on "N4G" should read this. Not because it is positive towardS Nintendo, but because it is a good WARNING for the Home Console INDUSTRY.

"Bee seeing you." "Heh heh heh."

I just want another LoZ:SS (gameplay), HD or not.

Very good article that was well thought out and very detailed. Deff worth the time to read it fully and see where the industry is headed !

From what I have read on-line, game ports for Wii U will have no better graphics than Xbox 360/PS3 games. However, games coded specifically for the Wii U will be much better. This says to me that the development cost for the Wii U will be more expensive than current game development and probably not far off the next Xbox/PS4 development costs.
