Wii u isnt the new dreamcast because the dreamcast was powerful and had a lot of good games .

And you wonder why you only have one bubble...

Sir, Do you have WII U? I love WII U, i don't give a damn what is happening to PS4 or Xbox1. Why are you here if you don't like Nintendo games? Do you know, you are here coz you are unsecured? Stupid troll... You have your OWN channel go f*u*c*k there.

The Dreamcast became obsolete when the other consoles arrived, anyway that doesn't matter, at the end, the Dreamcast got amazing games as well. Shenmue, Sonic Adventure, Taxi Driver (man, that was a lot of fun), etc.Maybe the Wii U isn't as powerful as the PS4 and Xbox One, but now it has got games like Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101 and Super Mario 3D World. Now prepare for MK8, Smash, X, Bayonetta 2, SMT x Fire Emblem, Hyrule Warriors. I can't wait.

Wii-U is the new Gamecube. Not too hard to make that comparison. Dreamcast - however - was the final nail in SEGA's coffin. Despite Wii-U's struggles, Nintendo will continue on.

I hope the Wii U can reach that level, the NGC has a lot of good games, many of them my favorites of all time, such as Paper Mario 2, the Pikmin games, Wind Waker, Resident Evil 4, Metroid Prime, Eternal Darkness, among others. Such an amazing console.

Not to nintendo. Nintendo made an actual profit with the gamecube.

Of course not. Dreamcast was ahead of It's time. WiiU is extremely underpowered compared to PS4. Dreamcast also had core games. The WiiU offers nothing superior to the competition. I think of WiiU as an inferior Gamecube.

You would...

I think "PS4 the too poor to PC" label applies to you.

WiiU is a better system at the moment because there's NOTHING to play on PS4 worth the $500 + price tag. (game and PSplus sub.)

And not being able to play Ps3 downloads is BULLSH!T!!

I traded in my free copy of Knack for KillZone, and those games will be forgotten.

Online Golf is irresistable.

For you too Sir, if you don't own WII U... don't be troll. YOU ARE UNSECURED. Please exit to your Chanel.

For the record! I want another DC, maybe another GC.

"Wii U isn't the 'new Dreamcast"


because Sega Dreamcast > Wii U

Sega Dreamcast had Soul Calibur one of the earliest Perfect Game ever
Then there was Jet Set Radio, RE: Code Veronica, Shen Mue, Sonic Adventure 1 & 2, Power Stone 1 & 2, NFL 2K, NBA 2K, Grandia 2, tons of Capcom games, MS Gundam 0079: Rise from the Ashes

I respectfully disagree, now the Wii U has great games as well, including another great Mario game, a huge return of the Pikmin series, something fresh and wonderful and innovative use of the Wii U Gamepad, a remake of one of te best video games of all time, the best LEGO game to date, and here are coming the big weapons of Nintendo, so I think the Wii U is becoming worthy.

It is hilarious what people spout out just because they hate nintendo^^

Dreamcast was a failure and destroyed Sega completely and you gives us a few games of its whole lifetime^^
