    Wii should be classified as New-Gen

    I've been hearing about the wii as part of next-gen consoles and I thought about it. The Wii should be considered New-Gen and should not be classified as next-gen with the 360 and ps3 (which are definitely next gen). Anyone else think the same?

    I get your point but I dont think so because even though the unique control system is a huge part of what defines the wii ;
    the similarities of the system and its "next gen" counterparts are all too close knit to give the wii a stand alone "new generation" quality .
    Also i dont think it will be too long b4 sony + msoft follow suit on motion detection .

    I think it mainly identifies that these are the current crop of consoles more than anything.

    Wii Sports, Red Steel (27%), Zelda : Twilight Princess (Forest Temple), Resident Evil 4 : Wii Edition (3-1), Trauma Center : Second Opinion (Ch2 1), Super Paper Mario (Ch 3-1), Mario Strikers Charged Football, MoH Heroes 2

    next generation = the generation that came after the previous generation.

    It has nothing to do with system capabilities, regardless of what people would have you believe.

    Skippy is right.

    But in terms people are classing next gen as PS3 and 360 but the wii is just Wii.

    Even on websites, like for EA's new fifa game.

    Category's are play station 2, ds, psp, Wii, Next Generation.

    It all depends on how you define "next-gen". Part of my definition is built in wireless conectivity, so if you go by my definition, the Wii and PS3 are next gen, while Xbox 360 would not be.

    ^ Dont double post...and they are all next-gen.... they all came out aroudn the same time after the last gen. And in three years or so when the next next gen comes out they will come out with something else to call them... and they will probably all be blu ray and all have motion sensing. Lets enjoy this gen for now though

    No, I think it is fine to call the Wii Nex-Gen because technically, Nex-Gen refers to the most recent lineup of consoles, which the Wii is part of. It may not seem Nex-Gen to some people because it's graphics do not compare to those of the 360 and PS3. You have to stop and think that that's not what it's all about.
