    Nintendo paid for that EG article. Commenter says so. Must be true.

    On a serious note, nice to see some positive press for a change.

    They were trolling for page hits when they said the WiiU was doomed and they're trolling for page hits now by saying it's going to be a success.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    And maybe it was the writer's opinion before, but that didn't stop ecosse et al decrying the end of objective journalism, how Xbox-centric EG is etc etc.

    Personally I haven't seen Q3 sales figures yet, so I don't know whether Pikmin, W101 and WW HD gave it the boost they were hoping for. But yeah, in all fariness the article could be right, although more in that the Xbox One and PS4 could be underbaked at launch.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Its all so predictable though. No surprises. Console out a year finally has games to play. New console has lacklustre launch games.

    EG do go for hits though, yes, which is probably why they arent reviewing Deus Ex with the new consoles just around the corner. Better to concentrate where there is big interest and guaranteed hits per article.

    Like I said, I don't argue his point (although the 'look how colourful WiiU games are and everything else is just browns and greys' part is fucking childish and stupid).

    Seems that the Wii U becomes massively more attractive if you're a dad and have young kids.

    I'm not knocking the console at all here - it's clearly got that market in mind and that's definitely a demographic I respect.

    @Syrette Possibly, but Ive finished Lego City, W101, Pikmin 3, NSMBU and almost finished Wind Waker and those are all games that appeal to me as a gamer. Wii Karaoke U, Wii Party U and Nintendo Land are just additional family orientated games that mean the family get to join in too.

    Had the wii u not continued to target families it would have been disappointing but I wouldnt have missed those other games for all the tea in China.

    Wii U may have the strongest Christmas games lineup, but it is not a "next gen" choice.

    If you believe a console generation refers to the power of a console, rather than it's place within a particular frame of time. My Grandparents are of an older generation as I am a superior being compared to them.

    It's neither last gen nor next gen. Nintendo are clearly distancing themselves from that circus.

    Part of me really wishes there were no nice articles about the Wii u as it really brings out the idiots who feel as though they have to belittle it against thier choice of console

    Anyway I think I might give w101 another go, see if I cab get through the first proper mission without dyong

    Why does a console even need this label anyway?

    Gah! Nobody told me the preowned Wii U shelves are empty! I couldn't find anything!

    Saw Super Mario Bros for 49.99!

    I think I'll wait, save some money and get some proper games for my Wii. Back to Nintendoland for now :(
