Wii U is next gen, no ifs ands or buts. Dreamcast was next gen and many of its games were just ports of existing PSX/N64 franchises with slightly better graphics. It got blown away when PS2 came along less than a year later. Jaguar was next gen despite having a library that overall looked no better than some SNES games. And it too got blown away when the Saturn / PSX launched within a year later.
Graphics aren't everything, and they certainly don't determine when new console generations start.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.
