    Ok I'm sick of people saying the wii is not a next gen console. What are they basing this assumption on? "Its not got HD graphics"? WTF does that have anything to do with being the "next generation" of video game consoles.
    Let me explain.
    "Next Gen" means that it is the next generation of a video game console. i.e. If your dad has a kid - YOU are the next generation of your family. You are part of a generation - a group of people your age. Thats a generation.

    When nintendo gamecube has a kid (the wii) It is the next generation of the nintendo family. It is part of a new generation of games consoles. So it is therefore nextgen.

    To be honest this is the most basic way of defining next-gen. You could go on and say its to do with innovation and other such stuff. But next gen does not mean "better graphics".

    Dude did you read my post above? Did you read it? about what a generation is? a Generation? meaning it has sweet FA to do with graphics.
    - The 360 is just an xbox with great graphics? so better graphics means next gen does it?

    Someone help me out here? :mad2:

    I couldn't agree with you more Brandon.

    Next Gen does not mean better graphics. It may mean better graphics in many cases (PS2 to PS3, XBOX to XBOX360) but not in all. Next Gen simply means that is the next 'round' of consoles.

    **** man....i wouldnt class the Wii even close to next gen. the 360 and PS3 are two much better consoles in gameplay and graphics..just because you can wave around a controller and aim a gun with it does not mean its next gen...its a nice addition to gaming..but not a big enough addition to call it next gen...

    and the graphics are part of what makes a console next gen.

    You people all hear the media going on about "next gen consoles" and make your own assumptions based on that has better graphics. (and as for better gameplay? get real its the same fricken games with better graphics"
    Go get a dictionary - open it to the word 'next' - then to the word 'generation'. Spend some time thinking over these concepts. Then apply this logic to the concept of game systems.

    Actually post your definitions of what is next gen here...

    I'm pretty sure the console developers decide what is nextgen.

    Ummmm. What would be a "big enough addition" to gaming to classify it as Next Gen if the "waving around a controller and aiming a gun" isn't?

    Douchebags travel in packs.

    The Wii pretty much wtfowns the ps3 and 360 as far as innovation goes.
