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?

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."

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.

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

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.

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.
