The Wii U to me seems as more of a mid gen upgrade since you are more than encouraged to use Wii accessories and at a disadvantage if you don't. The Nintendo handhelds are also more akin to the mobile market in terms of new iterations (example 3ds...xl...3d2...xl....and so on.) And now that we have this "mid gen .5 upgrade" concept in the collective consciousness was the ps4 or Xbox one really true full gen upgrades, it seems to me that they were rushed to market and are actually the .5 consoles. So why the blow back to another gen? Nobody said cycles were supposed to be 6-8 years. The tech world is moving too fast for this outdated model and we should be ready for 4-5 year cycles. Why all the shit thrown at the idea?
