So within two generations, Nintendo has been in third place in the console war, considering Wii, and Gamecube,

Is the Wii U, the best step,
or is Nintendo doomed to follow Sega.

Thoughts/Impressions.

Actually you bring up a good point, Nintendo became a powerhouse in the console/handheld markets because they were doing something different, but thats just not the case anymore.

Nintendo is always trying to be cheaper and appeal to the more casual gamers and the family, but because of that developers and hardcore gamers don't really care about Nintendo, and I'm sure we all know that thats going to hurt them severely in the long run...which is quickly coming upon us.

Nintendo will always have a place in the game development sector, but you might be right, they will likely end up exactly like sega

I think Sega's problems were a lot worse than Nintendo's by the time they finally dropped out of things though. Sega had the ridiculous Sega CD, the Saturn, and the 32x running around, and then the Dreamcast release was a mess and they were up against the Playstation 2...

Also, while I'm not sure how things are now, I always thought the big casual sales were holding the Wii up pretty well. For a while it was selling better than anything else, even if it looks like a sideshow to the hardcore crowd.

The Wii U is weird though...so I guess we'll see.

In realit, the Dreamcast is no worse than the Playstation, from what I know it was just as powerful, with the same internet capabilities, the problem with the Dreamcast was purely timing and thats it.

In relation to the Wii, the sales are going to drop. A lot. At one point they boasted full control over the family and innovative sectors, as well as boated the lower price, but now they aren't the powerhouse in those areas. XBox has the kinect, and in reality thats way better than the Wii capabilities, the PSMove or whatever they call it is stupid, and wont win that war, but the PS3 and the 360 have dropped in price enough to be able to contend financially with the Wii, from a consumer's wallet point of view.

While I agree that the Dreamcast was about on par with the PS2, the PS2 had the Playstation brand name, which was and still is huge.
