    i0n, MrJim and I are of like mind. If you define next gen as an upgrade then its not but I think that's a misnomer. Next gen should be the new technology, the thing that changes the face of the industry etc. To me, Plasma was the next gen in TV technology when it came out. The plasmas available in 2006 are not next gen to the ones from 2005 though. Again, this is my opinion on what next gen SHOULD mean.

    I agree exactly, Nintendo has always been the company to step up it's game and come out with new technology to bring to the gaming world. The Wii is a next gen system to me, I've never seen a motion sensor controller to use for gameplay.

    iwata is very right, all you saying its next generation, youre wrong, cos liek he said ,it isnt an upgrade to the others. although, it is very high techm, and is coming into this new era of technology, if thats what you mean.
    the wii is greta, and i see iwatas point, but all the people out there who are too engrossed in the ps3 and xbox, are too stubborn to even TRY and understand

    Enoch was right.

    Huh?

    Basically all anyone has said is it depends on what you man by next gen. I've more often seen next gen refer to an actual paradigm shift (like the Wii) than an upgrade (like the 360) so I'd say the Wii COULD be called next gen.

    There's not really a right or wrong, like imahawki said, it all depends on your definition of "next gen".

    Technically nothing about it. Google - define: generation gives the following: "a stage of technological development or innovation; "the third generation of computers", TECHNICALLY any new console is next gen by that definition. But the gaming world has developed it's own "split definition" of it, if that makes sense to you.

    ^-- In response to deleted posts: age doesn't matter, games are for everyone, and everyone is entitled to an opinion.

    putting this thread back on topic. basically i think of the wii as next gen bc it is the next system by nintendo it is more of a timeline/era classification for me more than a statement about what something is

    Good thread and good discussion. Very interesting how people view the subject differently. Either way, we know the Wii is different in some significant ways from both the prior "gen" (GCN, XBOX, PS2) and the OTHER new "gen" (360, PS3) so yes its hard to classify.

    Next Gen, put simply, is a company's next generation and latest product. In this case, the Wii will be Nintendo's latest generation product, period. Regardless of what I read in articles, the Wii is mine on release day!
