A hot topic for debate with the impending arrival of the Wii U is whether or not gamers (or the public in general) are ready for the “next-gen”. First off, what the hell is “next-gen”? Hyper realistic graphics and mega blast processing? Smell-o-vision and touchy-feely thingamabobs? Holodecks? And how much will all this newfangled tech cost? $300? $500? $999.99? Like it or not, while Microsoft and Sony are most definitely hard at work on the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4, Nintendo is going to release their catch-up console in about two months. Are you ready for the next gen?
