    In all honesty it's rather obvious the Wii U specs are better than the Xbox 360/PS3 specs. The question is by how much, and in my opinion, I don't see it as a lot.

    Plus I'm a true gamer anyway and "don't care about graphics" so I'll stick with my Xbox 360.

    Not sure how serious that last statement is,but it funny you say that when you emphasize power between consoles so much...

    The last statement wasn't that serious.

    Graphics are definitely a selling point for a console for me. Not over the games or features, but I at least expect my consoles to be on the cutting edge of graphics. I enjoy my good games to be good looking as well.

    Surprised no-one has pointed this out yet regarding the iOS at home statement overcoming Nintendo.....they polled MocoSpace, amobile game community and social network and got an answer in favour of phones rather than consoles. How is that surprising? Based upon the implicit failure in that point i'd be starting to think that there's a hidden agenda in his reasoning.

    Another topic about another analyst having another bitchfest about how Nintendo is making another console to shoot themselves in the foot another time.

    I'm sorry, I tried to fit that word in more times but I couldn't. Anyway, wake me when E3 rolls around so I can start fanboy giggling.

    lol
    Valwin trolls user submitted news, and post nothing but anti-sony articles to feed his nintendo fanbolysim
    Zekrom_cool just copy and paste whatever he see on N4G
    Prowler....he's cool

    Why would you call spam and trolling contribution?

    There's no reason to call Guild a nintendo hater just because he don't drink Reggie's bath water like the rest of you.
    I doubt he'll be in this forum if he hated nintendo.

    the 3DS definitely is a generation behind. you say the graphics are comparable to wii, which is comparable to gamecube (NGC>wii is where they started their retirement from using modern hardware), which is a decade old. i wasn't talking about literally a generation behind, i was saying a generation behind in terms of power. the wii, DS, and 3DS are all a generation behind in terms of power.

    and the fact that nintendo is aimed primarily at children is not debatable. it's a fact. PS3 is for hardcore gamers, i don't know what xbox is aimed at - i don't pay much attention. and wii is for children or, "family" if you will. nintendo is just aimed primarily at children. it's a well known fact. i'm not saying everything on the wii is for kids. that would be stupid.

    and you're so cool.

    you must be one of them nintendo fanboys i keep hearing about.

    edit; here:

    this guy said the exact same as what i'm saying. only saying it more in nintendo's favor, and saying they're bound to succeed. are you going to "durrr lol, just lol" his post too? because he's exactly right.

    First of all, stuff like Hardcore gamers is something that I consider BS, seeing as just because you like X game more then A game, it doesn't mean it's hardcore... Most people would call a game like CoD hardcore, whereas I'd consider other games as that, and the PS3 is as much as for children like the 360 and the Wii, or haven't you seen all those childish games they have?
    "PlayStation® Move. Step, jump, dance into the game experience that’s possible only on the PlayStation®3 system. PlayStation®"
    Sounds very hardcore doesn't it? Well, it's what's written in the official playstation move website, something def aimed at hardcore games, who wouldn't wanna wiggle around with a control that has a ball on it? =3

    Nintendo is aimed at all ages, like Sony and Microsoft are, why would they make Kinnect and Move, if not to get people that play the wii, play it too?
    I'm not even a fan of the wii, my fave console from this gen is the 360, but the Wii has some really good games, for which I'll buy one, same for the PS3.
    Also, how many games on the PS3 or the 360, can you say that makes you have genuine fun, laugh or etc? And I don't mean swearing at other people via headset, but actual fun wether alone or with others.

    In fairness to Shabby, I can understand where he's coming from. Nintendo's big franchises appeal to kids. Mario is colourful and Zelda appeals to the adventurous side of kids. This it only becomes derogatory remark if you want it to be, which I think Ninty fanbois and 'aters need to take into account.

    And Nintendo are family friendly, they always have been (famicom innit) whilst holding a conservative company culture. This isn't new in any way and I don't see why people should be vaguely emotive about it.

    i called the market for PS3 "hardcore" gamers because that just seems to be the label put on them. i don't agree that all of what sony considers to be "hardcore gamers" are the real hardcore gamers. i think hardcore gamers are those who don't pay attention to console brands, hardware specs, or loyalty favorism. but instead about the games and quality of those games themselves. be it whatever genre - RPGs, FPSs, platformers...

    and yeah, like i said, i never said everything on the wii is for children. and not everything on the PS3 is for these "hardcore" gamers sony speaks of. i'm saying their primary audience consists of children. why is that so hard to understand?

    unrelated; i like your charlie chaplin avitar. the kid was a good movie.

    So you spend 1000 dollars every year or so on graphic cards for your PC? Otherwise you invalidate your own argument as you are not at "Cutting edge"

    Nintendo makes their games for all ages, including children. Yes, this is possible. You remember Pixar movies? It is possible to appeal to many different demographics at the same time you know
