Sony and Microsoft spent the majority of this gen trying to turn a profit that's why this gen has gone on so long. Secondly, the WiiU will be out first and will have a year or more to develop a strong library of games. Developers nor publishers are not going to turn away from an audience that they've established. Just look at the PS2 for reference.
YES and THANK YOU. You are exactly right. Honestly I don't know how Sony/Microsoft can pull off crazy power houses next gen. with the world recession and all. Honestly game tech hasn't improved that much over the years. Look at the DX11 version of Battlefield 3 on gaming PC vs. Xbox 360. They don't look THAT different at all despite DX11 being WAY better and newer. I do agree that tech is "much" better and all, but the ratio of "differences" to "noticeably better" has greatly diminished. The gap the wii had vs. 360/PS3 will NOT be the same with the Wii U/720/PS4. It won't happen.
