History won’t be kind.
History will most likely judge the Wii U as a misstep. A series of missteps. It’ll remember the name, which was silly. It’ll remember the hardware, which couldn’t compete. It’ll remember the third party support, which felt non-existent.
The secret biggest surprise of 2016 so far? Sega has added official mod/ROM hack support to the Steam version of Sega Genesis & Mega Drive Classics. It's a bold new world. Also a very, very strange one.
