Definitely not.

In response to the third-party claims: I think a Nintendo console is defined by it's first-party titles - the definitive Nintendo console isn't about third-party software, it's all about Ninty's big IPs being there in good showings.

Also in response to Xenoblade Chronicles, this is not yet a big IP and while the next game does look pretty amazing, I don't think we can truly consider it a must for a "definitive" Nintendo console since it's not something we've come to expect from Nintendo. Yeah I know I put Splatoon in there, but I did say I was maybe jumping the gun there, but even then I think Splatoon will definitely become this sort of franchise from the first game onwards. Xenoblade still has some stuff to go through before I put it in that category.

AND in response to Groot... yeah, the Wii VC was way better, but in the OP I was referring to the Wii U VC getting more titles and consoles eventually. It's definitely not there yet.



The Wii had some great hidden gems, a great VC library and backwards compatibility with GC games. To me, the Wii was the definitive Nintendo console that covers a lot of ground.

The WiiU just doesn't have an interesting library or VC to make it the definitive Nintendo console, imo.

Well from the GC and up that is probably true.

If the console gets a Wave Race, F-Zero, Nintendo Wars, Wario (non mini game), Kid Icarus, Pilot Wings, and Punch-Out then I would say yes.

I thought the Wii was with its more diverse Virtual Console. I could play almost anything I love on there.


There is a lot with VC, but unfortunately licensing i think is causing Nintendo problems with porting that collection up to the Wii U. Makes me sad we wont potentially see the Final Fantasy games on Wii U VC :(



I think it's too early to say that.. Maybe in 2 years, but not now.

Huh?? Just no.NOPE!

Graphics- Gamecube was the most well rounded and impressive nintendo system graphically respective for its time

Games- Gamecube and SNES absolutely shit all over the Wii U in terms of the amount of quality experiences they had in their first 2 years.

Edit:The only thing the Wii U has is above all other Nintendo systems is its backwards compatibility. actually that goes to the wii because gamecube titles 

The Wii U is just a slightly underwhelming mixture of the gamecube and the wii.




It's the best Console I ever had.
