Money don't come by easily for gamers, so they must have something to focus on when making a purchase! Tekken producer should know it....

When people buy a 300-400 piece of hardware they want something thats gonna last, not start out awesome then fall behind a year or so later.

That being said I think a key part of the wiiU's success will be its versatility. The console's unique features and the hopeful ability to completely ignore the tablet to free up resources could give devs a wide range of options.

Specs don’t make a game fun or a system to be able to have fun games. And that is all that matters. I have tons of fun playing A Link to the Past now days even though the specs aren’t up to par with “today’s standards”. By focusing on specs you are allowing yourselves to miss great gaming experiences. Focus on what could be done with the uniqueness of the system rather than focusing on whether or not it can output a certain visual or apply certain physics.

I'm still gonna focus on specs, because I'm no idiot who buys things without knowing what it can do.

Harada is damn right. A true awesome game is something you won't stop playing, not something in HD. :l I mean, it's like saying justin bieber is awesomer than michael jackson, since he has better equipment. are you people seriously gonna do that?

Nobody would dare say that, they'd get lynched on the spot. There's a reason why he is the King of Pop, and Beiber can't come close.

The only thing that will matter for the Wii U and by extention Nintendo is the price. If they can keep the price below $300 they will sell well, $300-$400 they better have a great opening line-up and if they are over $400 it will be slow sailing. I see this coming out around $400 and it being a tough start for Nintendo, unless they change course and take a loss on the hardware.

Today's gamers would call your example (and all other games from those eras) trash. Why? Graphics. They aren't 3-D, they don't have bump-mapping, anisotropic filtering, anti-aliasing, tesselation, et al.

Today's gamer isn't interested in the art of game design. He's a technophile, interested in little more than the number of polygons and particles on-screen, some breasts (complete with jiggle physics), cursing, guns, and blood.

Its sad but true, Its mostly those who grew up with the older games that don't see graphics as the end all be all.
