Being from a generation or another is not a subjetive thing, hence there's no "considerations". Wii U could have 32 mb of ram and no gpu - and it would still be 8th gen
Is like saying your nephew is not from the same gen of your son just because he is retarded
No it could not.
I dont know why people try and make this arguement. Even So compare the Wii and the Genesis in their respective generations. Think about it.
