I'm still not convinced that the Wii U will get third party support.

I think the PS4 and 720 will be so powerful, it will make the Wii U too weak to easily port to.

The Wii U will work for a few years while most transition to next generation consoles, but then I foresee developer support drying up.

The Wii U just ISN'T POWERFUL ENOUGH. Not to last 6 years again the 720 and PS4 anyway.

I doubt Nintendo can repeat the Wii's success. I don't think people are excited for the tablet controller as they were for the Wii-mote. The Wii-mote gimmick was fresh and exciting, the tablet is old hat. Its been done before. Dual screen gaming has been done before. I don't see the casuals jumping onboard.

When the Wii came out, M$ and Sony couldn't compete with the cheap, underpowered hardware (in terms of price) or the gimmick factor. Not so anymore. The 360 and PS3 are/will be cheaper than the Wii U and both offer gimmicky experiences for the casuals.

Kinect is doing amazing, what if the casuals continue to by that instead of the costlier Wii U?

And what if Sony and M$ redesign they're consoles again into cheaper, smaller form factors? Isn't a $149 slimline 360 with Kinect a more attractive proposition to the casuals that a $250-300 Wii updrade?

The hardcore clearly are not interested in the Wii U. Why buy another console to play Aliens or Assassin's creed on?

That leaves the Nintendo Fanboys - the people that will click all those disagrees..................... .......... \/
Based upon the Gamecubes poor performace I extimate their are about 20 -25 Million of those AT MOST.

Of course, I could be wrong. I predicted failure for the Wii too, and look how wrong I was about that! lol

That would be interesting... if we know the power of the WiiU... since we don't you are just speculating. We don't know the 720 or PS4 power... they could be incredibly weak... the WiiU could be powerful... we know abosolutely nothing about any of the specs.
How do you know hardcore will hate WiiU... many hardcore will rejoice to be able to play high end and mario and Zelda on the same system.
