Since Xbox One failed to become an all-in-one entertainment hub MS envisioned it to be, and thus PS4 and X1 have now become very similar to each other, don't you think in this light Wii U might not be as unappealing as it had been previously doomed to be? It's still its own thing, for better and for worse.
Xbox One will never catch up nor overtake PS4 graphically, and even at its best PS4 will never prove to be a decent competitor for PC.*
So if we accept those things, then does Wii U have anything to be ashamed of, especially in 2014 when it has multiple promising upcoming games?
