As we all know, the next generation of consoles is just around the corner! The first of the new breed that we will see will be the Nintendo Wii U (unless of course you count the PS Vita).
The Wii U was first shown at E3 2011 – or, should I say, the controllers were shown at E3 – which lead to some confusion that the Wii U was just a tablet (like the iPad). This of course is thankfully not the case.
We now know that the Wii U is set to release in the second half of 2012, which may or may not have been earlier then the big N wanted to. This is possibly in response to Sony releasing the aforementioned Vita and the high probability that Microsoft and Sony must are surely working on their next consoles and planning to release them fairly soon.
But is it a good idea to release a console a head of schedule?
