Sony: Wii U in a Generation of its Own

By   /   4 years ago


Do you think Nintendo’s Wii U is a next generation console? Sony doesn’t seem to think so. While it’s already known the Wii U won’t necessarily be running around the PS3 and Xbox 360 graphically, it’s still considered “next gen” by some since it is the official successor of the Wii.

According to Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, the Wii U exists in its own generation.

Personally, I have always thought Wii was in a generation of its own.

I always thought PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are in the same generation, but Wii was not the same.

To me, the industry was growing really fast when those three platforms came up because the focus is so different. The PS3 and the 360 were the closest in terms of high definition and networked services. But Wii carved out a large niche to itself. To me, it was like two generations going at the same time.

Wii U is the next generation of Wii. That I understand. To me, it’s its own generation.

I honestly do not know if that’s a compliment or a dig, at Nintendo’s upcoming console. In saying that Yoshida does have a point. The Wii — and it seems the Wii U — marches to the beat of a different drummer; they’re valuing gameplay features and mechanics instead of being able to show off the shiniest new graphics in town.

We’ll know if that strategy works once Nintendo releases the Wii U later this year.

    but yet they are still competing with it and making their controller like the wii u’s smdh. and the wii u displays 720 p naturally not stresnig the sytem out of sorts like the ps3 does. the ps4 will be about the same power as the wii u and that was already said so sony sorry but you fail once again.
