Is Wii U next gen in the gaming world?

So alot of people are saying Wii U is simply a "catch-up" console and nothing about it is really "next gen" I personally disagree, What do u guys think?

Depends when I see some final specs & all the features it has. They might be on show somewhere already but I'll be waiting for release to make up my mind.

I'd wait and see until I make a full judgement, because there are so many responses and rumors about the thing that word the exact opposite of other rumors that it's so damn confusing to follow it(from apparently only being 50% more powerful than the 360, with the NextBox being 6x more powerful only making it 20% more powerful than the Wii U, to it being weaker than the current gen but powerful enough to run Crysis 3 better?)

Though I'm still wondering why they haven't released full specs yet? Either it means that they have little faith in the console or we're in for a big surprise

You guys are treating this like a matter of opinion. This is a matter of facts. Wii U is the successor to the Wii, which is a 7th generation console. That makes the Wii U an 8th generation console, as is the 3DS. Rather or not the Wii U keeps up with the other 8th generation consoles pecs is an argument that cannot be won, or frankly, intelligently discussed because we have not seen any other 8th generation competitors so far. Regardless of how the Wii U compares to them, it is still an 8th generation console.

No one can say yet. But even if Nintendo gets 1 uped, Sony and Microsoft don't have the franchises. Nintendo has Zelda. Nintendo has Metroid . Nintendo has Pikmin. Franchises like that have fanbases, and those fan bases are rabid. The games win the console war in the end.

I'm not suggesting you sell your soul to Nintendo, either. If you, for any reason other than not being able to finance it, refuse to play a game because of the system it's on, you're limiting yourself greatly.
