Remember when people predicted the Wii would fail? Me too. It didn't. You keep mentioning serious gamers, but don't forget the huge market of people who aren't. Overall the wii can be a fun console, and to have it upgraded with better graphics etc will be nice.
It sold because it had a gimmicky controller and much lower price than the PS3 and XBOX 360. The WiiU will NOT be lower than these 2 and no one cares about this new gimmick they have. And their old gimmick is incorporated in the 360 and PS3.
If you look at an apples to apples comparison the WiiU will sell less units than the 360 or PS3 which is the consoles it should be compared too. I'm sick of people comparing Wii sales to PS3 and 360 when the Wii was a glorified PS2/Xbox.
So if Sony or MS offers an innovation, it is an innovation. If Nintendo offers an innovation, it is a gimmick? C'mon, they are moving the tech forward. Until holographic tech arrives, things like this are neat and excite shoppers to buy.
And I agree "Serious Gamers"? What a term! If you're not a SERIOUS gamer, what are you, a loser? I think not. Gaming is supposed to be fun and is supposed to enrich life. Whatever any company offers towards that end is just fine. Wii people are just as valid as PS3 people.
