Seems pretty up to date minus forgetting about the Wii U, but in the artist’s defense I believe most people have.

    Sadly, the WiiU didn’t get the first party title support it needed out of the gate. Plus the now standard ‘HD price point’ of 60 bucks. The Wii managed to under cut the competition, and had a Zelda game at launch. The WiiU didn’t even have that.

    It doesn’t count if it doesn’t recognize the failure that is the virtual boy.

    I am loving my Wii U, the best console I’ve ever had. Even ignoring my PC and my once so addictive MMO(s). 😀

      Same here. And I’m an avid PC gamer. The Wii U gamepad doesn’t even leave my side. It sits comfortably on my desk. =)

    Probably was simply made before the wii u came out. Not like this site hasn’t put up content that’s been around a while before in the past.

    On the subject of the wii u , I’m having fun with it so far. And the off-tv mode has been rather helpful for myself, since I tend to get booted off the tv for some inane show at the worse possible time game wise, so it’s nice to be able to at the very least finish up what I’m doing on the gamepad. Only real complaint I have with it so far is that the batter for the gamepad could have been better, but at least it lets you use it while it’s charging, so it hasn’t been that incredibly annoying yet. Hopefully if (ok fine, when) they update those it’ll have a better battery for it.

      To defend your first comment, the timelines were originally posted on February 13th. Should have been more than enough time to include the Wii U.

    They also have Super Famicom carts as opposed to Super Nintendo. But kept NES as opposed to Famicom.

      I think the artist is European, which would explain that.

    The year for the NES on first pic is wrong anyway you look at it. The NES was released in 1985 in the States. Oh, but the artist is from Europe you say? Then 1986. Maybe he/she meant the Famicom, you suggest? Ok, 1983. No market had a 1984 NES launch.
