[QUOTE="Grammaton-Cleric"]...they make underpowered consoles geared towards the casual masses... ...NSMB as a launch game? Really?El_Zo1212oThat first claim is exactly why I keep hammering home titles like Assassin's Creed, Batman: Arkham and Ninja Gaiden. Was it true of the Wii? Absolutely. Is it true of the Wii U? Absolutely not. And when was the last time an original Super Mario game was a launch title on a Nintendo system? N64, I believe.
But the only reason that those ports even exist is because currently, the Wii U is comparable in terms of power. Nintendo has finally reached 2006 in terms of technology.
What happens when the true next gen tech arrives and once again Nintendo's hardware is far too archaic to run contemporary multiplatform games?
Then the Wii U really does become the Wii 2.
