Will we see Nintendo return to former home console glory?

Yes, WiiU should dominate for a long time
Yes, WiiU should at least get some months of domination
No, I don't see WiiU dominating many weeks
No, WiiU will be dominated

Everyone remembers a time when Wii sold more than PS3+360 combined week after week. It was a machine that couldn't be stopped...well, until something happened and PS3/360 started putting up a fight to eventually outsell our former glorious leader 2:1 or 3:1 easily week after week. Will the same thing happen this new generation with WiiU vs. PS4/720 at some point? 

Keep in mind that I'm only talking about home consoles here. 3DS domination over Vita is something we can all see already .



Watch this space - counting down to the GOTG soon

Who said 3DS couldn't dominate the 720/PS4?

(I don't think Wii U will sell as well as Wii but it could possibly lead the generation again. Just not as much as last gen.)

If they plan out their game releases. They have a few IPs such as Mario Kart that Sony and Microsoft simply can't compete with.

I don't think we'll ever seen anything like the Wii again. It was a huge risk and it reaped huge, unprecedented rewards.

If Sony and Microsoft price their next consoles at $500 or more, then maybe Nintendo could recreate the sales gap. But I don't think either company is foolish enough to do that.

It will happen when Nintendo stop making the games they want to make (Pikmin, Nintendo Land, Wii Music wtf) and start making games that have sold well in the past but really try and make them more awesome (NSMB + some actual effort/production value, that really epic Zelda people want minus annoying helpers/cutscenes/boats/trains, Wii Sports sequel that sets a new standard for motion fidelity and use).

The only way I see Nintendo domination again is if shooters die out. I think the 720 is going to dominate next gen.

I believe so yes. Nintendo has always been in a category of its own. I think the most interesting battle will be the PS4 vs Xbox 720.

Furthermore, I believe it is apparent in which market each console will succeed:

North America: Xbox 1st, Nintendo 2nd

Europe: Xbox vs Sony, Nintendo 3rd

Japan:  Nintendo 1st by a long shot, Sony 2nd



Even though i'm 99.99% Sony fan i would love to see the WiiU dominating the charts Nintendo seems to need it more than Sony right now. So they can just laugh at the haters and stockholders and say HAHA SCREW YOU!!
