Nintendo is trying to get ahead with the Wii U by releasing the console in 2012 before Sony and Microsoft release their next gen systems. Like the Dreamcast, the Wii U will straddle generations. The big question is will 3rd party developers stay with Nintendo once the other two systems come out? Will Nintendo have the support and robust online system that gamers crave? Will a touch screen controller be enough to make people interested in the system?
