The economy still sucks, coming off the global meltdown of the banking industry, and unemployment is high. Suddenly releasing a console isn't going to make tons of more people buy them. There is a cold reality that, if people are in my boat, they they may want to get a new console, but economic reality limits it. If I was doing better, I would likely of purchased a 3DS and probably a Vita to. I wouldn't of got rid of my PS3 which was backwards compatible playing PS2 games. And as much as I would want a WiiU, it isn't going to happen. I live on trade-ins now to get enough credit to get stuff.
