I don't care about dvr and football in my gaming console. It's supposed to play games, but i guess not.
Some of the kids at my school are immediately buying it because of the specs... the goddamn console has noooooo games, and windows 8 in it. It's a watered down pc with a kinect built in... wtf.
Ahhh... the modern consumer, what a joke it has become.
Game developers have even said they need to treat game design like their aiming to please a herd of mindless sheep.

Going a little off topic but i still don't see how 8GB of RAM is really going to make a major difference in the PS4 tech even though the tech demos were running on 3-4GB. People seem to be inclined to believe that more RAM means better Graphics, more RAM might help increase performance, frame rate, objects on screen and animation but it shouldn't make to much of a difference on screen. Im no tech expert and I can see the extra RAM helping improve the overall graphics, but i doubt it will be as much as people will think it will be.
If im wrong please correct me on this.

It's really sad how Nintendo has almost become the joke of the games industry in a way thanks to the overly large opinion that Wii is a kiddy console and has no place up against 360 and PS3. One time a friend and i were having a argumental discussion about whether the N64 or the SNES was better than a couple people laughed at us because "we were fighting over Nintendo consoles". Now im not saying the majority of consumers are all mindless zombies but when they don't even give Nintendo a chance, it really just aggravates me. Go on to just about any gaming meme page on Facebook and you will see just how much the Nintendo gets knocked around, either they pretend it doesn't exist or they bash it for being kiddy and having graphics so poor it could be rendered on MS paint. Im so sick of having to be that one guy who has to stand up to Nintendo only to get laughed at and be given probably some of the weakest comebacks i have ever seen directed at me.
Just saying my opinion, i have nothing against what console people decide to play.

Well from what we have seen with the PS4 game wise have been fairly low. Heres what we know.
Games coming out on other systems (or have already) :
Games exclusive to system:
*Killzone 4 (Oh look another fps)
*Driveclub (Not really that different from Forza)
*Knack (While very neatly integrated, the PSVITA controller could cause low sales)
Don't take this as me saying the PS4 or the games are in anyway bad, im just saying that there really isn't that much that the PS4 has to offer that will be available elsewhere.

Not this topic again *sigh*
Look, i can agree with some of your points, it's pretty poor on nintendo's part to not feature any advertising. But for gods sake, the system has been out for less than 4 months, what did you expect. It was the same for Sony when they first released, the system prices were through the roof and to top it off there was hardly a single game that made the system worth buying, but look where it's at now (aside from Sony's financial issues).
Yes the WiiU could be better, yes i definitely needs more games, just don't expect that it will be perfect within the first few months.
It will be fairly important that Nintendo shows off a huge list of games and upcoming features during E3 if they want to stand out against their competition, yes it would be better if they just released another Nintendo direct for this reason but Nintendo really needs to leave a mark this year. It's most important that they stick to their promises and avoid delaying games.
Just remember that the PS4 and 720 aren't even out nor have we got much information about either, you can't expect that they will rise on top based on what we know so far. A few issues will need to be resolved quickly in order for these consoles to avoid poor sales.
*The architecture will be fairly different from their previous consoles taking developers at least a year to really understand it, this could lead to some sloppy ports (maybe).
*Price: In this economy both consoles can't afford to price themselves at anything to far off $500, add that to the cost of 24 hour online connections (if that rumour is true) as well as the Gakai servers (Which will most likely be charged) and you have yourself a very expensive machine.
*Innovation: What will they brig thats different enough other than better graphics.
I'm sure both consoles will be fine but they just need to be aware of these issues.
My suggestions for Nintendo would be:
*Hire more staff to help reduce development time and allow for much more game development.
*Advertise everywhere, wether it be showing a tv commercial, a magazine article or showing the console off on a kids tv program, DO SOMETHING.
*Instead of a massive line up of games announced at E3 just release a steady stream through Nintendo direct.
*Don't delay you're games for too long.
*Get dat third party support
Note this is entirely my opinion, feel free to disagree.

Just because the Wii U has a lot less ram doesn't mean it's a lot weaker, in fact according to many developers it seems like they just have two very different architectures.
The PS4 may have 8GB of ram but that doesn't mean thats entirely dedicated to the game, the majority of it will be used to help run the OS and perform all the live streaming and whatever else they want to run.

Like if your a strong independent gaming analyst who don't need no Nintendo
Cheers to everybody's favourite gaming analyst for this wonderful piece of insight, said no one ever.
Before i start my rant, i want everyone to know this is purely my opinion, feel free to disagree.
The WiiU has been the most innovative console we have seen so far, what has the PS4 given us? A small touch pad on the controller, the ability to stream demos (which won't be possible on 85% of the planet), more pointless uses for your move controller.
The kinect 2.0 will be very unlikely to be the main selling point of the 720 and other than that we haven't heard anything new that would give most people a reason to buy it except for the promise of better graphics and thats about it.

Yeah, I don't know if they will. But there biggest problem is with there dvd. 25GB is small compared to 50GB, and that is what Sony pushing developers to do. But we'll see.
I don't think this will be too much of an issue, it will be a while before developers use all that space. Im not sure if the WiiU could have an expanded disc size like the 3DS cards did (Resident Evil:Revelations used an 8GB card while most games used only 2GB).
