Not exactly a brilliant comment to make when the whole point of competition is to out do the others. Its clear Sony or Microsoft will be revealing new consoles next year or even both. Then again what much more could you do to a console that is not already in the 3 above.
We knew it was coming but other than HD capability and a fancy controller there is not a lot special about it that makes it different from Kinect which is probably the better of the two.
Doesn't matter if they eventually get outdone in terms of graphics by Microsoft and Sony. The graphics will be good enough which is all that really matters. Nintendo's strong point is the quality and sheer fun of their games and that's the strength they cater for when they make their consoles.
The Kinect hasn't really worked so far and Microsoft's E3 showing was poor. The Kinect seemed to be shoehorned into existing popular games as a side feature, nothing core to the game just a little gimmick tacked on. In Mass Effect 3 you can speak
the line of dialogue rather than select it? Not only is that a nothing feature it's one that won't be used.
It remains to be seen how good the Wii U is but it looks like it will again offer something different and fun. It would be foolish to dismiss it as people dismissed the DS and the Wii initially. Nintendo know how to make fun games and fun consoles.
