The Nintendo Wii was always difficult to consider a true "next gen" console. The Wii was built on Gamecube-era tech and is easily trumped by the Xbox 360 and PS3's capabilities in both graphics and processing power. Instead, the Wii's big selling point was its unique motion controller -- and we all know how that turned out.
