I feel the Wii-U isn't really a next gen console, the Wii was half a gen and the Wii-U is current gen

What you feel and what actually is are 2 different things.

Based on the definition of a console generation, The Wii U is next gen.

New technologies, graphics, etc. are not what defines a console generation.

whats the definition of a console generation?

The time era of which it got released.

Next gen has begun. How does it feel?

The same because Wii-U just showed up 7 years late to the party.

by the time that actually happens though, the next new things will be coming out for sony and MS. so as people are being amazed by the jump in technology for the ps4 and 720, I doubt many people are going to be saying "hey you know what the wii-u finally is pushing out things much prettier than the old ps3 could."

I think people really exaggerate what the next gen visual leap will be. I have no doubt in my mind, that it won't be remarkable. Next gen will be a features, not graphics.

There's actually not that much further that they can go, unless they want to spend years and years and years making a single game world, to potentially have it flop or be pirated by those with the "devs don't deserve my money" mentality.

This generation was a decent size leap, but all it did was jump up into PC level visuals and if they bring out something super duper, it's just going to overheat.

WiiU will be a perfect example of where console visuals are going.

If I was feeling especially trolly I would say Nintendo just entered the same generation as PS360 and PC.

I have no interest in the Wii U anyway,I don't hate the system I just have no interest in their first party games and I can play third party games on my PS3.

Just to clarify, yes, the first 8th gen home console has released and Wii U is better in some things compared to PS3 and 360, the same in others and worse in others.

End of story. Don't fanboys get bored of being fanboys?

Again, a console generation is defined by the time era in which it is released, not the technology.

The Wii is a 7th gen console, and the Wii U is an 8th gen.

Deal with it.

Mario will never be considered next gen. And a tablet for a controller with a 4 hour battery life sucks. At least you won't see cod players play for 4 hours + anymore.
