@MajorPain10: This sounds like a corporate press release and not an organic post by anybody. "immersive input methods" for example. It's not your argument, it's that of the company and there are more holes in it than a sieve.
But you've fallen into the same old trap of suggesting Nintendo is the only one releasing games. This is, to be frank, a joke. The "different experience" you speak of is a cumbersome controller with an inventory screen on it, which hasn't been used properly and is the reason you can't have cutting edge technology in the console for a reasonable price.
I guess it's the way I write. Regardless, "games" in this case is subjective. Depending on the amount of interactivity, the game can go two ways: cinematic or mechanics (Nintendo focusing on mechanics). I hope they can push both aspects equally, which should be the objective. I mentioned the lacking effort that Nintendo and third-parties have put into the controller, which is obvious. If we were to finally get a game that utilized this piece of technology in an "innovative" way, then it might change people's minds.
Does anyone have evidence or proof of this? I haven't seen any wii u game look as good as UC 2/3, GOW 3, Killzone, Halo4, Forza, or GeOW 3. If the wii u doesnt show advantages over 8 year old consoles, why buy one?
It depends on how you want to define a "next-gen" experience. In a sense, bringing more immersive input methods and adding variety to the system may be more next-gen than buffing the graphics and tweaking the controller. You could argue, however, that the true evolution lies within the games. A boost in graphic prowess and computing can lead to more complex games. Thiscomplexity and ability to immerse the player seems to be the main focus nowadays over much of what gaming used to be, the mechanics. Interactive storytelling has grown this generation and looks to continue on. If you really consider it, Nintendo is really the only one who makes videoGAMES, not interactive features. The Wii U is designed to bring you a different "experience", whether that has been truly realized is up to you. There is plenty of room to accommodate the vast variety of games we have today and tastes vary person to person. If you like what the Wii U offers, then get it. If third party matters then get both =D.
