I don't understand. What you said in point #1 doesn't seem to lead to your conclusion in point #2. Could you explain how you see the Wii's technology placing it in 7th gen?
Thats because they are unrelated.
You asked a question, I answered it. You are now trying to use the questions you asked to make a connection. In my previous post I ave a list of thins that makes a platform be grouped into any given generation. Technology wasn't the only thing. It however is the one thin that doesn really go with the Wii which is obviously why you chose to focus on it and ignore the others. My exact words from my first response to you was:
"consoles are grouped into generations by a combination of factors like time/period of release, technologies that define the platform and software library......"
The wii has at least two of those things, Period of release and it also has some games from the 360/PS3 library. And while it didn't get UE3 support, it t the at that time current version of Unity support in 2008. So it actually ticks all three boxes. But for the wii, period of release was more important mostly because f how underpowered it was compared to the there two platforms at the time and how different (motion controls) their approach was.
Look, I know what you are trying to say..... but the best way to arrive at your own conclusions would be t ignore all the things that define generations and just go with chronological releases. But if that is how you define a new gen, and the Wii was 7th gen, WiiU 8th gen and NS 9th gen...... shouldn't that make the PS4pro and XB1X 9th gen too and the PS5 and XB4 10th gen?
