Unless apple made this thing I don't see it becoming popular. Having a tablet as a controller just seems bad and very unintuitive. Great for reading a book/magazine but playing a game... not so much.
Next gen just means the next generation in line of consoles, it has nothing to do with the hardware being next-gen. It is not implying that it has surpassed PC hardware. Also implying the touchscreen on the controller is a tablet it wrong ;) I can see the touch screen being used for menu/inventory/map system quite well that can be taken off of the main screen.
As for Wii's collecting dust, my Wii is the only console I've played in the last 6 months, possibly even in the last year and I've got all 3 consoles. New Super Mario Bros ftw.
