The Wii U will be fine, even post PS4, Xbox 720 Launch

By Furious Francis, editor-in-chief of

Leading up to the Wii U's launch, and even post launch, there has been some concern with a number of gamers, that the Wii U will not have the graphical power to compete with the next systems from Sony and Microsoft. While the PS4 and Xbox 720 will have better graphics than the Wii U, don't expect the gap we saw this generation. Some of the biggest concerns or complaints I've heard with the Wii U are: Its graphics for the long term, the 'gimmicky' gamepad, and launch game selection. Not only will the Wii U be just fine, but I'll also address all of the major concerns I've seen from gamers online.

Nintendo knew:

Console gamers... Dont care about graphics.

They were successful the last time with an under powered system by offering gimmicks, history will just repeat itself. The majority of the console demographic is happy with the Wii U.

@decrypt, I care about graphics. If I didn't I would still be playing C64 or NES. And most people care about graphics, otherwise there wouldn't be need for next gen consoles. Ever.

The Wii U will have a 10m sales head start on SONY and MS, which will be good for business (in terms of 3rd party support, at least!). However, I'm not sure consumers will buy into tablet gaming like they did with motion controls. Time will tell I guess...

I agree, the Wii U will be successful for a long time.

Zelda, Smash Bros, Mario, Metroid, Fire Emblem, Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, Pokemon, in HD.... enough said. The Wii U is going to do just fine. Just as long Nintendo releases these games.

I would love a real Pokemon RPG with online functionality on the Wii U. That is my all time anticipated game for every Nintendo home console. I'm sure it will come.
