    This "Gen-4" nonsense is doing my head in too, it's only Sony on Generation 4 this round.

    Microsoft is on Gen 3 (Xbox, 360, ???),
    Sony is on Gen 4 (PS, PS2, PS3, PS4)*,
    Nintendo is on Gen 6 (NES, SNES, N64, GC, Wii, Wii-U)*
    Sega should be on Gen 5 (MS, MD (inc 32x and Mega-CD), Saturn, DC)**

    *Not including Portable systems
    ** Included 'cos I didn't like to leave Sega out...
    I think that they think that we think the clock was reset at PS2 / Xbox / Gamecube

    In which case we'd be approaching gen 3.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Sorry, but the name is stupid too. WiiU?
    SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System)
    DS (Dual Screen)
    GameCube
    GameBoy
    N64
    They all meant something. Wii and WiiU are just embarrassing names to say and don't mean anything. Nint were trying to be hip/cool and they failed.

    What could possibly be embarrassing about declaring "I like playing with my Wii, especially with my girlfriend, she prefers to lay on the floor but I get excited and stand up during the climax of the game"

    Re: News - Wii U sold fewer than 60,000 units in the US last month

    I actually really like the console, despite everything. Wii U needs more games and a system update or two. We've seen a few lock ups that needed a reset - but overall it's an enjoyable toy to play with. The dual screen really can be handy for multiplayer games. The graphics are pretty tight too. The community drawings are excellent and add more interaction than XBLIVE.

    I'd also like to add; the NetFront NX v2.1 browser is the fastest I've used since the dawn of the interweb!
