It is more powerful than the last gen of consoles. Has blue tooth, Wifi, and a next gen controller. Please explain in what way it is not next gen. Seems the only reason people think that is because they lack any knowledge of the console.

"except that Wii is not really "this generation".. "

Why do you say that? Just because it has no HD graphics? Maybe this gen is not about HD graphics and more about gameplay and the specific controller(s) the Wii has. Everybody has a opinion what this gen is suppose to be, but their opinions don't matter. The Wii is selling more consoles then the X360 and PS3 combined, and that's what matters. So they are defining what this gen is suppose to be.

"The best value in not only video games but also entertainment".
Flat out lie right there it plays wii games and thats it so what are these other entertainment options? It costs 100 euros or so to make and they sell it for 270 euros where is the value? I really really hate Nintendo the way they just keep tricking consumers into thinking there console is in some way revolutionary or enables better games
