technically nextgen could mean what ever you want it to mean, so both parties can be right, you could consider nextgen a huge jump in power or just the next console from your favorite company, for me a nextgen on consoles means a huge jump in power, if playstation 4 and xbone were just a minor upgrade in power to 360/ps3 then i would not consider them nextgen, but wiiu is nintendo's nextgen console.

Wii U is far beyond eighth gen that it has transcended generations.


PS4+Vita must also be far beyond eight gen lol


Same goes for th 3DS, but the Wii U & 3DS don't need to hook up to another system to be so.

8th gen since it's by time.Though spec wise, closer to current gen.


The Wii U is soo powerful that it clocks its HD GPGPU @ 800 MHz.

The PS4 & ONE also clock their GPU's @ 800 MHz.

The Wii U can do way more open world then Lego City Undercover (Wii U).

Specs wise it's closer to XBox ONE, then PS3.

So? The same can also be said about the DS if we go by d2wi's comment. Also, you do know we were idly joking, right? You also do know I'm a Nintendo gamer, right?

I just bought a 2014 Ford Taurus, Its better than 2013 by very little yet not as good as what Audi A4 2014 which was my other option the A4 outperformed my Taurus in every single way, I just couldnt afford it, so according to some here my car is not really a 2014?



7.5th gen. Good ol' King Solomon couldn't give a better answer!

Well, Wii U, PS4 and X1 are 8th gen because the ONLY thing that defines a generation is the release date.
They're current gen now because all console are released.
PS3, X360 and Wii are last gen.



8th gen, both in terms of timing and performance...

just look at SSB, MK, Mario Land graphics, project X, seriously above the best Xbox360/Ps3 graphics, and WiiU is only 1st year, also can be compared to Ps4/XboxONE launch graphics, so yeah, WiiU is much closer to Ps4/XboxONE than Ps3/Xbox360



Wii U is a next-gen console. It's the first 8th generation launch console.

Next-Gen has nothing to do with specs or graphics.
