I don't disagree.
Why should it be a choice though? Imagine it... a Nintendo console which had access to the best third party games too. Amazing!
Just a thought, but maybe gamers would want it, because they like Nintendo games, and it's a Nintendo games machine?
But in front of me are a 360, PS3, Wii and PC. On the shelves behind there's a PS2, Cube, Dreamcast, PS1, N64, Saturn, SNES and Megadrive and a litter of handhelds. (the xbox is in the basement as it's just too ugly, maybe one day I'll let it out)
No one company has ever made a console that for me would suffice for a generation. In the SNES/Megadrive days I was a young teenager and only had the one (it was an import Genesis with Strider, what a Christmas) but once I could go back I did and since then I have always ended up with them all.
Each gen I get them all, and each gen I am surprised by which console ends up the most used. I never thought the 360 would be my most used this time, and really believe the Dreamcast to be one of the finest machines ever made and ahead of it's time. Every console I have has at least 5 essential games, which compared to what I used to pump into arcades makes them all cheap even if you only buy those games.
The PS3 has been the least used this gen, mainly because any cross platform game has generally been bought for the 360 as I prefer the pad and have more mates online. The Wii is not far ahead of the PS3 in use, but the games I have played have been some of the best over the last 5 years.
I am sure that the 720 or PS4 will have better visuals, and there will be some amazing games I'll play. But I'm equally sure there will be some absolute gems from Nintendo which will make the WiiU worth every penny spent.
I look forward to seeing what Microsoft and Sony bring to the table and am sure at least one of them will be bought. But the difference between them will be minimal compared to the WiiU. They will both outperform in power, but will the games be that much different?
The next gen is the first I can see myself possibly missing one out. I can't say which yet, but one thing I am sure of is I won't be missing what Nintendo have to offer.
