Nintendo: First Out the Gate

Outside of some rapid (and likely impossible) rush to market by Sony and Microsoft that would most certainly end in certain doom, it looks like Nintendo is set to accomplish a feat never before seen in their history: Nintendo’s new console will be first to market.

I still think the WiiU was a huge mistake.

That remains to be seen but they shouldn't have announced it so early with nothing really to show and no finalized specs. There are also a lot of things people will take issue with such as:

1) Revamped friend codes. Ditch them already Nintendo.
2) No DVD or Blu-Ray playback. Not really a huge deal but a nice added bonus.
3) One controller per system (though that may change).
4) Potential cost (they said it won't be cheap).

I think it will do fine, just not as great as the Wii.

Yeah, Wii will be a hard act to follow. I think a lot of people feel taken after purchasing it since it really lacked 3rd party support.

Hmmm "first", or "5 years late" ?

if the wiiuuu can give not really more than ps3, it's 5 years late...not first.

More like last to market. Welcome to the current gen nintendo.

And the current gen is about the limit. Even sony said graphical improvements of huge worth wont be happening in the ps4

Nintendo are probably going for "new-gen" instead of "next-gen", that's what they said when the Wii came out.

LOL half or more of the casual Wii owners don't even know a Wii U exists, it'll all come down to what they want.

Rushing into the next gen isnt a good idea. We needed it last time but the rush cost us big time with broken consoles and long waits for good games. Now is the time to just ease into the next generation and enjoy the console we have now for the next year or two.

It does not have the coolest controller. It has been already done before to some extent with Sony's remote play on ps3 and psp. Everything in the WiiU is old tech except for the cpu.
