    i know you are a nintendoy fanboy, i seem to recall you acting defensive and offensive for nintendo in the past for no apparent reason. which is exactly why i said that. what is your point?
    and why should i? who the fuck are you? i can visit this site if i please. and i do please. i visit this site mostly for the blogs and the news, if you really must know.
    and what is it with you and assuming you know all about others? do you think you're cool or something? and nice picture, keep pretending you're not butthurt.

    i dun geddit. what part of their statement isn't clear? they worded it exactly how they intended to; to get the loyal fans to think along the lines of what you're thinking, but for everyone else to have it clear as day that their next gen system isn't going to be very powerful. otherwise, they would have said "no, it is going to be more powerful than current hd consoles." don't you think? no offense, but i think your fanboy loyalty is getting the best of you here, especially when they made it so clear that the "rumors" were true. why wouldn't they deny them if they were false?
    and yeah tomato tomato. you knew what i meant. stop nitpicking.

    So much hurt and off topic..

    I kinda find it funny that people expect the analysts' results to be accurate all the time. The thing that made me wonder here is that they give reasons to why they think the WiiU could possibly be a bad deal for Nintendo. It's not like they're saying it's 100% certain. Basically anything can happen in between now and the time the release is finally made. For example if the factory making the WiiU screens just happened to blow up or that the PS3 would all malfunction for reason X. You can never be certain, but these people are trying to estimate probabilities. Like it or not, some people compare many results like this instead of just one when actually buying stocks compared to raging on the internet about the topic. Honestly how many of us have Nintendo stock?

    Also however you want to not compare Apple and Nintendo, Apple still has made a ton lot more money with their products in the same domains (gaming is part of the Apple market too, like it or not). It's actually amazing that Apple can sell an iPad for kids (parents paying) just for gaming.

    The moment a professional poker player's hand can be known by reading their poker face is the moment I agree with Shabutie78 about implying that by neither confirming nor denying actually gives an answer that means one or the other.

    that's very nice. you're entitled to believe what you want, and so am i.
    but i still say that if it weren't true, they would have said so. to deny that is just blind fanboyism. and i guess there's nothing wrong with that.
    regardless, there's no question that it will follow the pattern their previous consoles have been in that they're all a generation behind in terms of power.
    DS, wii, 3DS, were all about a generation behind. the wii-u is just destined to follow the same fate.
    either way, like i already said; i don't agree with the analyst in that the wii-u will fail.
    nintendo is aimed primarily at children. children don't care about hardware specs. they care about mario and gimmicks. it's destined to sell well. it's fucking nintendo.

    Well, everyone is stuck with their own ideas and beliefs. We'll get the true answer in due time.

    The 3DS isn't a generation behind, sure, the graphis are inferior to Vita's, but they're supperior to PS2 graphs and somewhat comparable to the Wii graphs at times, plus, it has glasses free 3D, which I enjoy myself.
    I'm not a fanboy myself, hell, I only buy the systems that have or will have RPG's that I like, while the Wii U will most likely have lower graphics compared to the next xbox and playstation, it will most definetly be more powerful than the previous generation, several devs have said so before... Regarding the aimed primarly at children, that's debatable.. There's several series of games that Nintendo consoles get that definetly aren't for all ages, all plaftorms have childish games, dif is that Nintendo states themselves as Family Fun.

    Mmmm, let me taste those sweet, sweet tears.

    Also, so Valwin posts news and I don't? Oh, I'm sorry, I completely forgot that my name is yellow. I guess I should contact Costello and tell him he accidentally made my name yellow like I post news or something that's so weird.

    But seriously dude, cry some more, 'cause nobody gives a shit.

    You've posted 5 news articles in the past week, 2 of which no one even cared about. There have been plenty of members (Prowler, Valwin, and Zekrom_cool just to name a few) who have contributed a lot more in less time, and they don't even have the meaningless yellow name and mag staff icon you do.

    I don't even know why you bother with this shit, when you can't even come up with an argument that's not "cry moar" or "haters gonna hate." If you had as much of a brain as you did a hatred for Nintendo, maybe, just maybe, you could back up your argument. But that day will never come...

    Wii U is already doomed.
    Hell, even Nintendo is doomed since the beginning.

    This somewhat remind me people who keep yelling "The end of the world is near!"

    To be fair Nintendo is doomed if the end of the world is near. As is Sony. And Microsoft. And you. And me.

    i think everyone else already proved earlier that better specs will mean more 3rd party support which means better games so when the new ps and xbox comes out i'm sure the wiiu will be ditched by those 3rd parties in favor of something better.
