First of all, the creators of PS4 game "The Order: 1886" would probably cry a bit for that statement about PS2 vs PS4 ;-) But, ye sure, going from 8 bit side scroilling gfx to 64 bit 3D is more noticable than going from 3d to better 3d.

But back to your original statement. Hardware doesnt matter, its all about the games? Well, why do you think Wii U isnt getting the big releases you see on XBone & PS4? Devs cant be bothered to spend time on making an inferior port for a lesser system. And if sales are anything to go by, Sony is doing something better than Nintendo even without Mario...
OTOH If the Wii U was equal to the PS4 in terms of power and had a similar architecture, then it would be easy to port all games to it. Then Nintendo would have most of the big titles + their own unique stuff.. So, I beg to differ... Hardware matters IMO...
