The only way I can see Nintendo announcing a new console that soon is if the completely Wii U flops, and even then Nintendo obviously doesn't expect it to so we won't see a new console for another 5+ years.

I don't see that happening though given how similar Europe's market is to ours, I expect similar results from a price drop and maybe a few more much anticipated releases. I keep hearing people use those $50 gift card deals from places like Target as a reason for the price not being a problem but then Europe has the same games as us but sales still picked up after their price drop so the MSRP must have something to do with it.

Lol @ the noob who compared shooter rehash's to Mario games.

The WIi-U is not next gen and wasn't supposed to be. It is last gen.5 and a building block for nintendo's true next gen console that will probably be announced next year. it was released to take advantage of the long gap between last gen / next gen. People dying for a new toy bought it. They pretty much just upgraded the wii.. I don't know why people can't see this lol. Time will show
Where's your source to say that they are doing another next gen and that they are announcing it next year? Don't spout such utter guff if you can't back it up.

You're forgetting most stores in Europe cut the price of the WiiU from $50-$100 :V

Gamecube - 21.7 million sold
DC - 10.6 million
Wii u - Can't find the number on my phone, apparantly sales are skyrocketing in Euro right now due to the release of MH3.

Skimming this a little but I've seen people refer to the Dreamcast and Gamecube. Both were leaps and bounds ahead in technology at the time. The Gamecube had better graphics than both the PS2 and Xbox. The Dreamcast - not even worth talking about how ahead of its time the thing was. The Wii U I like but realistically my low-mid gaming pc of several years is more powerful than a Wii U. It is NOT "next gen."
Referring to them in the # of sales they made.

I love Tenklis going on about the Wii-U being their stepping stone to an announcement next year. Do you have any evidence to actually back up your claim?

Why do you say that? The people who already bought the wii-u are the core fan base and would buy a new nintendo in 2 years without a thought. I don't have a wii-u yet but I plan on having one eventually for the games that my ps3/4 won't offer me.

The wii-u sold a decent amount at launch offering third party titles that were available on other consoles for what was already a long period of time. If you don't think they can do the same thing in 2 years with a fresh console releasing with any of there outstanding first party titles you may be delusional.

Then care to explain who Nintendo expects will buy it? Most people who already went out and bought a Wii U aren't going to to want to shell out for yet another $300+ console, especially when Nintendo seems to have trouble supporting the current one.

They don't have to. What would you like me to explain about the Wii? It was an incredible success!
