Wii U More Powerful Than PS4? Dream On, Says Sony

Nintendo announced that the Wii U will be powerful but they are also seeking a ‘reasonable‘ price-point for when it releases later this year. Sony hasn’t shared much information regarding the successor to the PlayStation 3 but a Sony executive confirmed – over Twitter – that the ‘PlayStation 4′ will be more powerful than Wii U. How much do you think the ‘PlayStation 4′ will cost?

Remi: Hey, have a quick question. A friend says that WiiU will be more powerful than PS4…yes PS4. He really said that. What is your take?

Shuhei Yoshida (President of Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment): Let him dream.

    1. Ah ha ha ha! Look at Sony’s pathetic attempt at a Wii Remote and Nunchuk! Wha ha ha! I feel that I want to lick and eat that lolly…and that’s not because I was thinking about anything else!

  1. Well you can’t really argue with that. Unless Sony really fucks up and Wii U turns out to be more powerful than the PS4

    1. PS4 could be as powerful as a gaming pc, anyways there is not much difference between ps3 or xbox to a pc, just watch the battlefield 3 comparison an you will see that the changes are really small.
      Its impossible for our age to have another graphic jump like xbox to xbox 360 or ps2 to ps 3.
      Anyway im always looking for a better gaming experience, and that is something only Nintendo can do.

      1. A PS4 could be as powerful as a gaming PC, but you’d also ay $2k for it too. The reason Battlefield version don’t have that big of a visual gap when compared is because that’s the way they were designed.

        Look at a game like Crysis released way back in 2007, pump that up to ultra and then compare it to it’s recently released XBLA and PS3 ports, notice a difference? Yep, that’s about half the detail you’d have on PC.

        There’s a HUGE difference between consoles and PCs, about a two year difference from day one on launch day. Even the Wii U is dated visually compared to PCs now.

      2. Uhm, that’s because it’s a multiplatform game, and those are usually almost exactly the same in all platforms. And actually, if you have a high-end PC, BF3 is orders of magnitude better looking than PS3 and XBOX360, if for nothing else, it’s can run at 1080p or higher and 60fps. Neither current gen console could do that with the graphics even dimmed down. So, you’re an idiot.

        And I’m not even a fan of PC games (I own a Mac for one thing). I prefer consoles. But PCs are light years away from consoles, even when before then consoles debut.

              Its like saying that there is much difference between 720p and 1080p

              1. Why are you missing the point that this isn’t about opinions? The reason I can see the difference after 20 years of playing games is a Xbox/Ps3 to PC has major differences, whether it be draw distance, quadruple the amount of objects on screen, higher res textures, or even better shaders to name a few, there’s a difference. Same goes from the difference between 720p to 1080p, it’s almost twice the amount of pixels.

                I’m sorry, but the fact still stands, you have no clue what you’re talking when it comes to hardware on consoles or PCs.

                  1. It’s not that I care for visuals, it’s that fact that visuals are there and can’t be ignored. I in no way am claiming that visuals make the game, I’m just stating that better graphics do exist, I know the cost and abilities of current hardware, and I know what Sony and Microsoft will pay for their consoles. I’m also a graphic designer so my job is to design better visuals daily for our games, I can’t just ignore the fact that I had to cut back more detail on our 360 and PS3 titles, but I have free range on PC titles. I play my NES more than any console I own at the moment and would I never claim graphics are what make the game.

                    1. Let him go, he just barged into an objective discussion on graphics with OPINIONS. He’s just trolling.

                      It’s fact that, cost aside, the graphics of PC games are lots and lots better in comparison to the PS3 or XBOX360 games graphics. On the PC I like that there’s a sliding invalidation of games, on consoles the invalidation of old games happens in an instant. You can still play a 1995 PC game on a PC (with luck!) while… Try putting a SNES game into a Wii. It’s a bad comparison but it sums it up. You can still put a 1995 CD game CD into a PC and it MIGHT just work, fat chance with that on consoles if the developer wasn’t awesome and re-released it for, for example, the Wii virtual console.

      3. Well you know, the power of a console can also give you a different if not better experience. I mean they even said Pikmin 3 was perfect for HD graphics. I think for now that the graphics like the demo for Unreal engine 4 is probably the most Nintendo should go. I don’t believe graphics will ever get better than that, and it would probably give us the best experiences for Nintendo and other games. That is just my opinion.

      5. Actually pkstarstormomega is wrong, ps3 or xbox are FAR behind from PC in terms of hardware power. The point is, XBOX is leading the market, specially multi plat games. (in general)

        The changes in Battlefield 3 in Xbox 360, PS3 and PC are small because they’re porting the game from Xbox 360, there’s no point in making the game from scratch…otherwise it would be a different game lol…you know that, please…

        if you want to see what PC games are capable of, you should take a look at PC exclusive games and MMO games since they’re not limited by the console industry.

  2. Seems like a stock comment by Sony just so they can say simply the PS4 is more powerful than the Wii U. It probably will be (and probably will cost $5,231.58 before the bundle). I think Iwata and others have made it clear time and again that the Wii U will be powerful, above the current generation of course but not so much that it’ll make the system cost much more than it typically has. A “reasonable” cost as it’s said, over and over again, and we’ll get what we pay for.

    This “friend” seems more like some faux push of Sony’s or this guy’s part. Not very legitimate. Lol, Sony will have to make their system much more powerful than the Wii U’s I think. Otherwise it seems like it’d be just… PS3.5… now with less initial stock!

          1. I disagree. I loved how the Genesis D-pad moved. It was free-flowing allowing you to move where you wanted. It just felt really nice. I don’t know what your talking about sharp edges, they felt fine for me. I agree it can get a little hard to use for a game like Ristar, but once you got it down its great. Its also perfect for games like the Sonic series where you need to change directions quickly/ SNES was a great D-pad as well, if a little stiff…..this is a really nerdy conversation isn’t it

            Oh btw, FACK U SNES SUKS GENESIS IS TEH BEST CONSOLE OF ALL TIME SEGA DOES WHAT NINTENDON’T BITCH :P

    2. Why would they abandon the Vita ? It’s only about to leave the launch window/just left it and all the awesome games are on their way. If you would have read Sony’s announcements/interviews you would know that they are not planning on giving up on it, not at all. Maybe you’re not interested enough in Sony to read their things but if that’s the case, you better keep your false and uninformed comments to yourself.
      And about the Playstation controller… Why should they change something that works perfectly fine ? A lot of people, including me, find them really comfortable. In fact, they’re my favourite controllers. Though I really like the SNES controllers as well. Oh right, the SNES controller… You’re complaining about Sony using their controller over and over again… But Nintendo did that too, no ? The SNES controller “scheme” was used for SNES itself, Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS lite, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, Nintendo 3DS and is about to be used for the WiiU. Now, if you say that the handhelds do not really count as “controllers”, Nintendo still used the same scheme 2 times. Sony did 3 times. So I don’t really understand your problem.

  11. The Wii U is barely a current gen console. So, realistically, the PS4 will probably be more powerful. But honestly, I wish people would focus on the Wii U and not a system that hasn’t even been mentioned by Sony. The Wii U will do fine, regardless. The Wii stood on it’s feet for quite some time before it fizzled out, so regardless, they’ll both sell. I don’t even see the point in comparing it to a non-existant console. At least let the Wii U have the spotlight for now.

        The only game shown that looks any kind of good is Assassins Creed 3, and that looks almost completely identical to the other consoles’ versions.

Most of the Wii-U’s games are just ports as it is so they’re not going to show off amazing graphics that’s for sure. As for Zombi-U, do you think Ubisoft has their best teams working on that game when they’re already working on Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, and Watch Dogs? Seriously, you expected Nintendo to make amazing graphics for Wii Fit U or New Super Mario Bros U or Pikmin 3?

  13. A lot of people are talking about the PS4’s price like its going to be $1000 or something. I really don’t see that happening. the PS2 was so successful due to its cheap price and additional DVD player. The PS3 failed horribly at the beginning with its $600 price tag. Sony have probably learned from their past mistakes and knows that an expensive console is a terrible idea. Plus, selling a console that is over….say $400 is suicide in this economy.

    Also, I never saw the Move controller until now, but the nunchuck looks really awkward. The Wii nunchuck was designed to fit your hand really nicely, but this one looks pretty flat. And there are buttons on the nunchuck, and I can’t imagine how you could move your thumb down to press those without some discomfort. Is it just one of those things you have to play with a lot to get used to?

  15. Most likely PS4 will be much stronger graphically than Wii U. Unfortunately for Sony, the price may have to be high to warrant it’s value. Potentials consumers will be displeased with the cost. Besides graphical power and cost, what matters most is the gaming experience. Right now, the Wii U seems to boast an intriguing and fun new way to play games. It’ll be interesting to see any innovation PS4 can throw on the table.

Most people say they don’t notice much difference between 1080p and 4k unless it’s a giant movie theater screen, so eventually people will stop being interested in hardware upgrades. Microsoft seems to have figured this out by now, as they’re focusing more on new gameplay (although it’s mostly ripoffs of something else at the moment), but judging by their comments, I don’t think Sony gets it yet.

Whether it is in graphics or processing power or even both. I don’t know much about the nitty gritty details but I do know I can see the difference in levels of HD/graphics. I do feel better graphics can create a better gaming experience (current gen tech has spoiled me). Where we are now looks great and I don’t feel we can do much more without a drastic change in technology. Different rendering technologies maybe? As for which next gen system I plan on purchasing I am undecided.

    How much will you have to pay for Sony/MS next console? Nintendo will never make their consoles so advanced that it becomes out of reach for the average consumer. The other two don’t have a problem doing that. Gaming must be accessible for everyone. That’s Nintendo’s policy. Leave luck to heaven.

  40. PS4?!?! From what we’ve seen I still don’t even know of its as powerful as a PS3. Nintendo truly failed at E3, because most the games shown were ports and already on other consoles. The 1st party games looked like Wii could have pulled them off. So if I was Sony or Microsoft, I wouldn’t really worry. If one if them would have even released a statement about PS4 or 720, it would have been enough to take all interest off Wii U. Now don’t get me wrong I’m a Nintendo fan all the way, but air don’t let my loyalty blind my intellectual state of mind. The problem is Nintendo had a chance to take the world by storm with Wii U at E3 like they did with Wii in 06. But instead, all we got was a lackluster E3 that only appealed to the casual gamer and people who live under a rock (those who never played ME3, Batman AC, and others). It was also suposed to appeal to all gamers and give the ones who have a PS3 or 360 a reason to buy one. Instead we are more confused about it than ever before, and I for one will not buy a Wii U until given a good reason too (good games).
