*Insert lame joke about the Wii U*



"I've Underestimated the Horse Power from Mario Kart 8, I'll Never Doubt the WiiU's Engine Again"

Around the Network

Not gonna jump on the jokes, too easy this time.

But nice, if they can hold up until 2018 that would be good.

We always have 2 main Zelda's per console since the 64, so I can see it hitting in 2018 and being cross gen, just like TP.



Reggie should just pre-record his responses. He says the same thing every time a new system is brought up.

Five year cycle. Bank on it.

Probably a 6 year cycle, like the GameCube.


The Gamecube was 5 years (2001-2006).

Wasn't discontinued until 2007.



The real Zelda still hasn't hit store shelves, nor do we have a Metroid, an Animal Crossing or any real details about Star Fox. The Wii U has not reached its full potential.



Around the Network

The Wii U is a competent console with great games and a ton of potential given Nintendo's strength in IP's. It may not be a big hit with a casual audience like the PS4, but I am glad they aren't pulling a Sega.

People normally don't count the system life cycle upto its discontinuation. Because than the NES would be active for 18 years.



I've heard this from reggie or miyamoto like 4 years ago about the wii... I wish I could find a link to see the exact quote

Nope too easy.

LOL... my thoughts exactly...

now seriously, this could drag for more 3 years without breaking a sweat, their are set in their way and they will be broke before they change. Sad, really. I could see myself buying a nintendo console but i know i wont. I dislike the mario character, and its impossible to have a nintendo console without mario being thrown into your face constantly. So i invest my time else where.

The final games on the Gamecube released in 2007 as well.
