Your 75% wrong. Microsoft didn't ruin the generation except their crappy Xbox Gold Member. Why can't they allow people to play online for a stupid subscription? Two things I hate xbox is their subscription and RROD (which doesn't happen happen when I first got it). I don't hate Microsoft but I hate their greedy online subscription. I prefer free membership.
Honestly, even though the Wii U is featuring more big-budget third-party titles this time around, the audience is still radically different from that of the PS3 or Xbox 360, so there isn't really room for a fair comparison.
As for my personal opinion, though... I'm sad to say I'll be passing on the Wii U this time around, and this is coming from a Nintendo lover who has owned practically every major console from them. The Nintendo 64 and GameCube were pretty much my favorite consoles of all time; I felt a bit alienated by the Wii's motion controls, but I gave Nintendo a pass for trying something different. Now that they're practically doing the same thing again, neglecting even more of their beloved franchises (Star Fox, anyone?), and spiraling deeper into the "family" mindset, I just don't see the point anymore.
On the bright side... it's helped me rekindle my love for PlayStation!
