It will have to be, but some of these games and the promises Nintendo are making will sell consoles no matter what. I kind of blew my load, and confidence, on the 3DS. As soon as Megaman Legends 3 was cancelled, I was screwed, because I had 50% of all of my care invested in that. I spent all of the money I could have put into this on that investment.
And still the 3DS is paying off with what's coming down the pike, but considering I spent the current price of a PS3 on it, I completely screwed myself. I enjoyed what I played on the Wii U, and there are things coming along I'm excited for, but the Wii U lost two additional years in total with me in terms of how long it will take me to buy it.
Not to mention the additional fact that, as someone who only recently bought his first smartphone, has never owned a modern console with next gen sensibilities, and has never played a Playstation 2 or Xbox for a long period of time, I found the controller to be nigh unplayable. This is a fault with me, but even when I played Lords of Shadow on your PS3, Icedhope, I struggled a lot. I'm molded to PC and old consoles. I want to adjust, but the question comes down to: do I want to adjust with the Wii U, or do I want to adjust with a new Playstation or Xbox system?
This is why I need to see what Sony or Microsoft are offering before I make a judgement here. The 3DS is already offering most of what I would want from a Nintendo console. Paper Mario. Luigi's Mansion. Castlevania. An upcoming original LoZ game in OOT 3D's engine. It's appealing to the fanboy in me. The Wii U is appealing to the person in me who finally wants to get into a hardcore console, but Sony and Microsoft are just around the corner with theirs.
