Another doubter? You too, shall fall be humbled by the power of the WiiU (given time after release).
Micheal Pachter talks if he thinks the next dreamcast is secretly wii u -->wii u a.k.a next dreamcast?
The only reason I see how the WiiU is "dreamcasting" itself, is that all the people who bought the Wii recently aren't going to want it. The most casual of gamers (families, seniors, etc.) won't jump on the band wagon as easily either I'd say, since the WiiU won't be as simple and casual. I certainly don't think Nintendo is gonna suffer loses and not get immense profit, but will it be a great a seller as the WiiU? Nope.
A premature release in terms of development of said console? Not really. Premature in that the Wii is still an incredible commercial success raking in profits as I type? Perhaps.
The Dreamcast is still great, by even all of today's standards.
Possibly because I belong to a dieing breed of gamers who remember that story, music, and obviously game play are more important than graphics, multiplayer, and a console's capabilities.
Would you rather play MW3, or Jet Set Radio?
