The Upcoming (And Pointless) Console War

I found it a little wearying to see comments on my ZombiU review to the effect that my distaste for the Wii U was "inevitable". I wouldn't have thought so. I didn't like the Wii because all that faffing about with motion controls was detrimental to functional game play, but I was cool with Nintendo right up to the Wii, and the Wii U seemed like a return to a focus on immersive gaming and a slightly less drastic enforcement of hardware gimmicks.
