Shin’en Multimedia: Wii U Is Most Definitely A Next-Generation Console

xbox_one_ps4_wii_u_controllers

While Nintendo fans consider the Wii U a next-generation console, skeptics deem it as a current-generation console that won’t be able to compete with upcoming platforms PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – both of which are scheduled to launch later this year. However, according to a developer that has worked on games for Nintendo platforms, including Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Nintendo’s latest console is most definitely a next-generation console.

In an interview with GameReactor, Shin’en Multimedia Art Director Martin Sauter defended the Wii U hardware. Sauter said that while the Wii U isn’t a big leap in terms of raw power, if developers work hard enough, they can produce beautifully-crafted games on it.

Of course the Wii U is not the big leap hardware power-wise but it is a big leap to the Wii and to be honest I think we’ve reached a point where we don’t need so much more hardware power – we need better games. For every game you can make it look so good that it’s good enough for everybody and I think the Wii U is a good compromise between price point – because don’t forget you have a tablet controller, you have a great hardware base and it’s much better than everybody reads. It’s better than Xbox – sorry, it is better – and you can squeeze lots out of it, but you have to really work hard on it and I think you can make great games with it.

I’m not sure if a much more powerful PS4 will produce much better looking games. We’ve reached a point where good games will sell and I think the steps will be much much smaller in the next generation.

When newer consoles are released from rival companies Sony and Microsoft, do you think the Wii U console’s games will look outdated? Sound off in the comments below.

  1. My Wii U needs more games :( I have a feeling they’re holding off the games to late this year to compete with the other consoles. Smart move?

    1. Oh look! It’s mindtrick!! HEY DUDE! you need to go back to Wii U daily forums so they can kick the FCK outta you again :)!

      1. What? Fuck off. I have one account. I don’t go to that stupid ass site. Slob on a knob. Stop thinking you know me fuckstick.

        1. HAHAHAHA that surely hurt the FCK out of you once again go back to the side so i can ban the FCK outta you again WE MISS YOU BRO HAHAHHAAHA

            1. whats up…. would you like to join me in my mission to span the world into eternal darkness. “whispers”……… walterrr…….. would you like to or would you rather suffer in a worse way!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        2. wait wait wait imma get some burger and then i will be back to troll the FCK outta you which i must say cracks the FCK outta me! HA!

    2. Could be smart. The Wii U will definately have a good amount of quality games by the time the PS4/X1 launch, maybe even more than them. Plus it’ll be MUCH cheaper by comparison.

      1. Nintendo is in a really great position right now. It will have the most games. But can it overcome the Hype for the PS4 and Xbox One? Dun-Dun-Dunnnnn.

    3. That’s one of the reasons, another reason was that some developers complained that they had to release their games at the same time as Nintendo, ensuring 3rd party devs little to no sales on Nintendo consoles.

    1. This something that should have been said for a long time. People thinks that games are made for free just like how kids think that teachers Live in schools and are not normal humans. Wii U is probably the smartest console out there

      1. And that’s exactly why the defibitive sub-HD version of Need for Speed is on Wii U and in 704p. I support that whole fun over visual fidelity but I DO NOT SUPPORT THE WHOLE WAIT FOR FUN WITH INFERIOR HARDWARE!

      2. I can’t figure out what that picture is supposed to be… A sideways fish? or dog lying on a carpet? weird robot? lol

    1. May be you spended to much time with Microsoft lol. It us imposible to screw there own console like Microsoft did.

  2. anyone have an estimate of how much longer people are gonna be going on about whether or not wiiu is next gen???

    1. When the Ps4 and Xbone are released and their exact specs will be found out, there will be again tons of articles about that. But it wont last very long and a few months after that, people will just accept that the WiiU isnt supposed to be a powerhouse…

    2. It will probably last about two years after the PS4 and Xbox One are released. ;/

      Then the fanboy console wars will just continue from there. *sigh*

      1. But by theblooks of things it’d probably last 7 years since Xbox One isn’t doing so well in the news

      1. well.. you’ll most likely see the difference graphics wise in every cross plattform game

        but yeah i think shin’en have a point.. the difference won’t be as noticeable anymore.. it will be there of course but i doubt most people will mind

      2. No. PS4 and Wii U games both run at 1080p. Only Xbox One games run at 4K. But you won’t really be able to tell since not many people have 4K TVs so they will only see 1080p.

        1. seriously?…. 4K? xbox one? jesus that’s a load of bullcrap
          99% of todays high end PCs wouldn’t manage 4K..

          you’d need at the very least (!) a dual GPU system to get anywhere near reliable framerates trying to render 8 million pixels.. for more demanding titles 2 GPUs wouldn’t be nearly enough

          the xbox one will render at 1080p just like the other consoles

          1. Agreed. Plus TV’s aren’t sold that go that high definition. Plus most people wouldn’t be able to see the difference unless inches away from a 80 inch screen. And last point, if they mean it to hook up to monitors that can display more then 1080p then they have just shot themselves in the foot because the Xone is a pretty shitty low spec substitute for a decent PC that can do everything a Xone can. Still not sure what they were thinking. People want a GAMING console that might be able to do other things. Not an overpriced TV box that can sorta game on the side.

            1. “Agreed. Plus TV’s aren’t sold that go that high definition. ”

              actually there are TVs with 4K .. haven’t you heard? Oo
              they’re just very very expensive

              but you won’t find one that supports more than 24 fps.. since that’s the limit of hdmi 1.4 at 4K resolution.. so actually playing a game at that resolution isn’t even possible.. unless you want to play with 24 fps that is

              no idea what they were thinking with the xbox one either.. even most set top boxes can do what the xbox one can (except for gaming that is).. and you can get those for 200 bucks.. heck even most smart TVs can already do what the xbox one does

              this device will fail terribly outside the US market..

        2. Xbox one games will not run at 4k. Consoles won’t be able to until 2020, when 4K tv’s become standard.

          1. Yeah I preferred xbox this(360), and last gen.(original) But this Xbox one is TERRIBLE. I hope it sells badly to begin with so they can fix their mistakes with the “always on” and other issues.

    1. *Looks at Wii, PS2, PS1, and SNES.*
      Hmmm, I still greatly enjoy playing these consoles… so that means…
      *Looks at Wii U which he is typing on as always.*

      1. And what all those console have in common is that there were more powerful consoles on the market, and yet they still won convincingly. So if history follows suit……………

        1. Actually thats wrong what they all have in common were that they were the weakest of their entire generation yet they were able too outsell the competition and still had many amazing games. PS1 went against the N64 PS2 went against the Gamecube and the Xbox SNES went against the Master System and Genesis and Sega CD. Wii went up against PC 360 and PS3. So history shows its not always been about the power of the console but what you can do with said console too create amazing gameplay expieriences. But no these days no one really cares about good games anymore they just wanna compare specs and be graphic whores. who cares if the PS4 and XONE are more powerful. Theyre still less powerful than high end PCS so fanboys need to calm there tits. This is coming from a major sony fanboy that also loves nintendo consoles and owns xboxes

  3. For people it’s not the visuals that we care about… It’s multi plats… Devolpers aren’t willing to spend extra amount of time and money porting to a lesser speced machine, hitch can be a problem

    1. Cause WESTERN developers are too lazy to innovate within their games. If they wanted to innovate, instead of making boring first person shooters, then they would love to develop on Wii U.

      Not to mention most “next-gen” engine scale. CryEngine 3, Anvil, Hedgehog, Unreal Engine 4, ect all scale, so it doesn’t take as much time or money as you’re “implying”

    2. Give it time, they will. Once the devs realize that they aren’t making money on these games anymore because they are spending too much on development for cutting edge graphics, then it will be even playing ground. Also they will pretty much go to which ever console sells the most. So this generation it will likely be the Wii U and the PS4. I certainly wouldn’t go anywhere near an X one. The stupid thing is that I actually prefer the 360 over the PS3 for this gen. I hardly even compare the Wii to the other two because it’s a different beast entirely. Similar thing to the Wii U to, once again, the other two… Soon to be one lol.

  4. In comparison to the Wii, the Wii U is next gen. The other new consoles will be next gen to their current systems. But really, does this whole next gen thing make any sense? Surely it’s the games that come out on each system that make the difference. If I was THAT bothered about power then I’d just play everything on my PC.

    1. Yeah, the generation really shouldn’t matter. If it’s a great game, it’s a great game. People are blinded by some sort of misplaced consumer loyalty which turns into fanaticism.

    2. Personally after the revealing of the Xbox One, I don’t really feel that’s next generation. First of all the new Xbox is trying to be a PC. Games being forced to download on a console was done for PCs first. Everything we seen the Xbox do with your TV was already done such as Google TV, Apple TV, Roku TV. Having your voice as the controller to operate is done on Sync, Bluetooth, BMW cars, and Kia Motor’s UVO technology. The controller is the same. And hardware these days are getting redesigned to be smaller such as flat screen televisions, Cell phones, cars, portable devices, yet XBOx does the complete opposite. The Wii U is more powerful than NES, SNES and N64 and yet the Gamecube, Wii and Wii U are smaller. Also it seems that Microsoft’s IPs are only FPS. So all that’s left is a doubled up 8 core console with 500 gig that it needs more than Wii U needs 8 or 32gigs. However i read that an individual Wii U core is more powerful than an individual PS4 core. Its sorta like taking a 2004 V6 Infinti, and a 2011 KIA OPTIMA I4 TURBO. People today want less pistons without sacarficing performance. XBOx heavy technology is dinosaur. The Xbox 360 hardware quality was like Ford back in the 90′s. People are on their 4th 360s. Why or how the hell people think the XBox One is going to kill the Wii U? Exclusives are what really matters it differs a console from another.

      1. A lot of people agree with you. The XBox One causes more problems than it is worth. The need to log onto the internet every day (and if you are away or your internet goes down then you’re left with a brick), having to pay a fee to borrow games or buy second hand games (which is going to stop the majority of second-hand games retailers stocking games for the system) and the fact that the console power / Kinect camera is always on feels like an intrusion. Not to mention the voice recognition technology, which puts you at risk of the channels switching over if you speak during gameplay or watching television programmes…

        I have no problem with the XBox 360, but the XBox One is without doubt an exercise in money-grabbing, and even a lot of XBox fanboys have turned on Microsoft over it. Both Nintendo and Sony will benefit from Microsoft’s error, as we have already seen on Amazon UK. Now we just have to wait for the PS4 details to come, and then we should be able to make an educted guess as to how the ‘next gen’ years will play out.

        1. My points exactly, that’s what everyone’s overlooking. What good is all this horsepower if you lack the software support, or make it impossible to enjoy the games by nickel-and-diming your customers to death over every little aspect?

  5. Unfortunately yes, because its quite impossible to get rid of poor, childish fanboy trolls. You’ll still find them anywhere, like und4er a bridge… where normal people routinely pass through. Dam trolls.

    1. But true gamers know not to listen to the trolls. I outgrew it during the Megadrive vs Snes days! While they’re boasting about how fantastic their consoles are, I could either laugh at them whilst pointing out the games on my PC, or I could get my head down and play some amazing, FUN games on my Wii U.

  6. I know… Microsoft destroyed my favorite console, now it sucks,it requires internet connction, there is a fee fcor used games, kinect gimmicks are requires, there is too much of an ephasis on TV, its overall not a console. Sorry Halo, but it looks like I won’t be able to play you because you’re owned by complete idots who can’t seem to listen to their angry fans. Of course the Wii U is better. And since sony exclusives bore me, I will probably buy the Wii U then, odd its like Nintendo knew that Sony and Microsoft would fuck up this badly! And that I would have to give them my money.

  7. We really are seeing diminishing returns. A lot of what is made possible with greater power is better lighting effects, bloom, draw distance etc. We’re seeing new display methods like oculus rift, new methods of input like the Wii U tablet, the Kinect and feedback on triggers with the X1. Game are changing in ways that simple graphical fidelity doesn’t measure. Sooner or later, like all true art forms, the experience will be the most important metric we use to measure the quality of the offering.

        1. I really don’t think ZombiU looks all that bad either, especially since it was one of the first offerings for the Wii U on brand new hardware and all that. But the gameplay is great. And the grittyness seems to help with the atmosphere I think.

  8. Nintendo is always like this at begging but in after some time u well see just wait for mario and zelda and metroid and f zero and star fox then we can talk

  9. I really like this team and I think they’re going to become one of the best software house for Nintendo. They have a very good hardware knowledge, they just need more level design improvement.

    1. they’re a very small team mind you
      it’s very unlikely you’ll see any major games coming from their direction.. intricate level design is of course something you need manpower for

  10. Ah one of our closest allies this generation and a formidable Tribe indeed!

    You people are beginning to understans the righteous path of the holy N, that better original, fun and creative games are what matters, not that pathetic superficial powerful machines with mediocre games at best…

    1. People cant 4get that our powers at Retro, and devz from ps3, WIIU is about to drop Bombs like whoa…

    2. Personally after the revealing of the Xbox One, I don’t really feel that’s next generation. First of all the new Xbox is trying to be a PC. Games being forced to download on a console was done for PCs first. Everything we seen the Xbox do with your TV was already done such as Google TV, Apple TV, Roku TV. Having your voice as the controller to operate is done on Sync, Bluetooth, BMW cars, and Kia Motor’s UVO technology. The controller is the same. And hardware these days are getting redesigned to be smaller such as flat screen televisions, Cell phones, cars, portable devices, yet XBOx does the complete opposite. The Wii U is more powerful than NES, SNES and N64 and yet the Gamecube, Wii and Wii U are smaller. Also it seems that Microsoft’s IPs are only FPS. So all that’s left is a doubled up 8 core console with 500 gig that it needs more than Wii U needs 8 or 32gigs. However i read that an individual Wii U core is more powerful than an individual PS4 core. Its sorta like taking a 2004 V6 264hp and a 2011 KIA OPTIMA I4 274hp TURBO. People today want less pistons without sacarficing performance. The 2011 FORD TAURUS IS just as racy as a V8 AUDI A8. XBOx heavy technology is dinosaur. The Xbox 360 hardware quality was like Ford back in the 90′s. People are on their 4th 360s. Why or how the hell people think the XBox One is going to kill the Wii U? Exclusives are what really matters it differs a console from another.

  11. Fuck, finally, a developer who just think we need better games, not flashy visuals.
    Honestly, im not “wow’ed” by visuals anymore, on a “high texture” scale. If someone does a crazy visual style and it looks beautiful then yeah i would be, but just saying “oh here’s some polygon, look at the detail”, i dont care, it’s irrelevant to me.

    1. That’s why our empire exists, to ensure that gamers begin to think like that once again and to make sure the Atarians and Xbots never set foot on this universe ever again…

    2. A lot of games with pretty visuals have boring gameplay. I bought AC3 because of the graphics, that game did not suck but it was causing me to yawn. But it has great graphics.

  12. I’m always confused by these arguments. I base next gen and current gen and stuff on the time period they come out in.

      1. The ps2 came out during the saturn and n64 generation? I think you mean dreamcast and even that is wrong.

  13. I am just playing resident evil rev and to be honest the graphics don’t really stand out, in fact I would say re4 on GameCube are more impressive, but the game is good, other games I have played such as call of duty need for speed assassins creed ninja gaiden and tekken there is no way a Wii could produce them.
    I’m with a lot of people on this, I don’t think there is enough games yet to really comment, plus there isn’t really any in house releases apart from Mario and that Nintendo land.
    one thing I will moan about is the lack of racers I love my racers I think there is two, need for speed n Mario clone sonic racer.

  14. This guy knows what he’s talking about. I am looking forward to their next two Wii U exclusive games 10x more now :D

  15. The Wii U needs Fresh New ideas in the game area, not just rehashes and hd releases. We need to move on from Mario and Zelda.

    1. The franchises might be the same, but most of the time they are not rehashes, they are franchises with entirely different ideas with some familiarity to it…

        1. “These franchises are the same but every game of franchise has differnent idea which gives a whole new experience to the player!”

          Ignoring that Pikmin3 will be more different than Halo 4. Álso ignoring that Twilight Princess was a complete gaming experience compared to Majoria’s Mask with the Wii Remote. Also ignoring that Raymond Legends for Wii U is a different experience than the traditional PS3/360 controllers. Also ignoring that on Nintendo Land on Donkey Kong game, if you blow into the mic the game reacts to it. But because Nintendo came out with this first and not Sony, you want to play stupid on thinking the Wii U is just a 50x more powerful NES.

          1. What? I don’t think the Wii U is a 50x more powerful NES! I’m not insulting Nintendo! I’m not even Microsoft fan! All the things you listed are things I agree with!

          2. Your stupidity is amazing. He WASN’T attacking Nintendo. You’ve just confirmed yourself as another sheep of a fanboy.

    2. It’s funny that you say that because out of all the games that get released main Mario Games like Mario Galaxy innovate more than 99% of the game ames on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Where was the innovation at Sony’s press conference? Knack, KillzoneShooterfall? Tech Demos.

      Hands down the Next Mario game will innovate more than any game Sony or MS releases. You need to actually start looking at what the games due instead of looking at the name and calling something a rehash.

      The industry has been rehashing the same shooters for the past 13 years none stop.

        1. It does. Paper mario is a large case for innovation, between the 2d and 3d switchable play style and variences of gameplay. Same again with sticker star to a point. Very different use of items in that game. There are certainly time they sit back and chill and do the same ole’ like with nsmbu, but you can’t expect mind blowing new gameplay styles for every entry.

    3. Those are just the biggest IP including pokemon. Nintendo has several newer exlusives pikmin and Xenoblade for example + Nintendo has stated they don’t make an Ip then think of gameplay for it. They experiment with new ideas then decide if it would work better with one of there esixting Ip’s or if a new Ip would better suit it. That why if you notice most mario and zelda games have some sort of new element to them.

      Example: Mario- Water pump mechanics in sunshine, Gravity physics in galaxy 1 and 2, 3d dimensional platforming puzzles in 3d land, dual button RPG combat in Mario and Luigi

      Example Zelda- Vast world of islands and boat traversal in Wind Waker, One to One sword motion Combat which was first tested in WSR then chosen for Skyward Sword, Altering dimensions from 2d to 3d to solve puzzles in LTTP2.

      I’m 100% sure that in the next Mario and Zelda it won’t be just upsacled graphics and new levels/dungeons but all new gameplay mechanics added to an already solid foundation.

      Last note, Nintendo isn’t fcking activision

    4. Ignoring that Mario games bring in Money. Also ignoring Pikmin3, Lego City Undercover, Metroid, and Woderful 101. Also ignoring that Mario is the face of Nintendo and Sony has used multiple faces and still can’t find a suitable one.

      1. Mario is like Disney’s Mickey Mouse or Sega’s popular hedgehog. Any idiot who thinks Nintendo should stop making Mario games is like saying Disney needs to stop displaying Mickey at Disney World.

  16. How come I don’t see these articles on ign. Lol they’re too busy comparing specs on the ps4 and xbox1 lol I don’t care about whats more powerful I’m just glad nintendo finally made an HD CONSOLE. seeing zelda HD is gonna be sick!!!

  17. The graphical difference compared to the other consoles will be very little to none. Most people won’t even notice.

    1. Actually we will see the differences in graphics but it won’t matter. PS4 games will have more details in the graphics, making them look more realistic than Wii U games but that doesn’t mean that Wii U’s graphics will be ugly compared to PS4.

      Wii U games can still look amazing compared to PS4 games if developers work hard.

  18. its going to change…. now developers are not going to talk shit about nintendo, its microsofts turn….. xbox is the new wii. the laughing stalk in the community… along with fur fags. their still the most pathetic!!!!!!

    1. It’s not the new Wii because the Wii won last generation…

      It’s the new Virtual Boy and all other consoles that failed misreably…

    1. Have you played Nano Assault Neo? Shin’en truly knows how to make a game that perfect– Beautiful graphics, and easy to pick up play control. This was my very first indie game that I’ve bought on the U.

  19. Go and watch the latest Pikmin 3 footage running on a 1080p YT vid running through your television. Looks amazing to my eyes.

  20. Finally a developer that uses common sense. Of course it’s a next-gen console no matter how powerful the Wii U is.

    And yes we need BETTER games not better graphics.

  21. I agree with this guy. Games don’t need to be more powerful. They just need to be good. The sooner people realize graphics don’t mean anything, the sooner we’ll get better quality games.

  22. Just checked IGN and Gameinformer to see if they reported Shin’en’s comment…. they didn’t. And this is EXACTLY why people don’t think Wii U is next gen. The big name gaming sites refuse to report good things about the Wii U. 💋

    1. Don’t worry Miss Jynx, soon our power will be felt even in the “observers” world and they will to fall because of their misguided views on our holy N…

      1. yup! If you google it, you will only see about 3 or 4 árticles about the 875% increase of Wii U sales. That happed last Wednesday right?

  23. It’s great we have a developer basically stating the obvious. A lot of developers wonder why they can’t make money on a Nintendo system. But the truth of the matter is if a developer made a product and put the same time and effort into their games that nintendo does they could sell there product..The worst thing is take that sniper game that just released. You take a broken game that had low scores you saw the reviews and the reason why it had low scores. You port it to the Wii U later and then you don’t fix the game by fixing the issues. Instead you offer less game with no upgrades and you charge the same amount?
    I refuse to spend my hard earned money on mediocrity.

  24. ahh graphics don’t really mean anything to me other wise il have a gaming pc. i care for gameplay & last gen i seen alot of cash in only focus on graphics. when i come home from work i roll me a mj & just wanna play a good game that’s it im only intrested in wii u & ps4 because exclusive. nintendo seem to care for the gamer intrested as well as sony .

  25. The three controllers look great! I will get a Wii U and a PS4 this generation. Ofcourse, if I had the money, without a doubt I would buy an Xbox One, but… I rather have the Ps4 than the Xbox One. The Wii U is a “must have” for me.

    1. Graphics don’t mean everything. The ONLY reason I still have my Wii and N64 is to play Diddy Kong Racing, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo Kazooie and Tooie and, Pikmin 2, Star Fox adventures since those games are not bet on e-shop. Good gameplay is the reason why Star Fox 64 for 3DS sold so well. THAT’S WHY NINTENDO CAN BRING BACK WIND WAKER. ONLY THIS TIME WE experience it with the gamepad and HD.

  26. I do agree with the concept. Just because a console might not have the specs that the others have, it is still a next gen console. The games are ultimately what counts. The graphics are good enough, so it’s the quality of the actual gameplay that I’m looking for. It’s too bad that he had to take shots at the other companies, but I guess everyone likes to do that now. Ignoring those parts, I agree with the speech

    1. -Used games fees

      -Requires a connection to the internet once every 24 hours

      -Kinect required to use the console

      -Most likely going to have to pay to play online

      -Microsoft will not allow indie devs to self publish

      -TV licensed features not available to foreign market

      -Kinect voice commands could possibly used by others for trolling

      -5GB DDR3 RAM available for gamedevs (7GB DDR5 on PS4)

      The one positive; 15 exclusive titles, 8 new IPs, but how many of those are Kinect gimmick games?

      1. + it’s not only one box. You must have the kinect(1), the brobox(xbox one), the HDD external drive(3), the cabel/satelite TV box(4) and some even needs a second stand alone box for the connection between satelite/cable box to the brobox(maybe 5)

        and they named it Xbox “One” Its, more like XBox 4, and that is true in soo many way!

    2. Xbox obe unbeatble. Ok. Let me borrow your halo 5,6,7 and 8 after you beat them. Oh wait I forgot I don’t want to because I have to play a dumb ass fee.

  27. ” It’s better than Xbox – Sorry – It is…”

    Shin’en Tribe

    Have any lovelier words ever been spoken outside our borders than that?…

    1. VAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!THIS IS BULLSHITS!WIIU IS A PREV.GEN.CONSOLE!AND THE MOST DEVELOPERS SAY IT!VIIU IS NOTHING!

      1. Subject : ziegfried

        Species : Xbot
        Status : Endangered – Medium

        Facts : This is a typical Xbot soldier trying to defend its natural habitat if the Microsoft Realm.

        Further investigation confirms that its attacks are online based and can’t even scratch our lowest Nintendo Drones.

        If you see this type of Xbot you can do as you please.

        Nintendo Commander

      2. Ignoring you rather believe developers not working on Wii U than developers actually working on it and don’t have anything negative against Nintendo saying it is next generation.

  28. well i dunno, the WiiU is next gen but like he says compared to the Wii, the PS4 & X1 spec-wise seem to be at least twice as powerful as the WiiU, so someone must be wanting the power.

    1. Ignoring that a single Wii U core is more powerful than a single PS4 core. Also ignoring Wii U launch titles only worked 2 cores and still looked graphically better than 360/ps4.

  29. I the Wii U is a next gen console Because it is more powerful than the Wii. I may be on the low end of tech but it is still a next gen console.

  30. It definitely is a next generation console. Maybe not as far as hardware goes but being released after the wii makes it next gen. You could also argue that it is next gen because of its controller, its something that hasn’t been done before. If that’s not next gen I don’t know what is.

  31. MHU sums it up to me.. I’m playing witches two on pc– totally awesome graphics maxed out! But I just keep going back to MHU. It’s just that fun. Then there’s elder scrolls online who have gone on the books saying they’re making it for five year old lap tops! Get that up ya Xbox

  32. Has this guy been reading my posts on here? That is almost exactly what I have been saying lol. Not a large jump for graphics this generation, it’s about gameplay and creative thinking. Woot

  33. Terms of power:
    Wii U-PS2
    Xbox one-GameCube
    PS4-Xbox original

    Terms of sales:
    Wii U-PS1
    PS4-N64
    Xbox one-Sega Saturn

      1. Have you see the game grumbs kirkhope interview? He almost cry saying that he wanted Nintendo to call them tso make banjo 3. He sounded realy sad.

          1. Go and see the video is an hour of fun until that point everything got sad. I think Hell be just happy making games for them even if it not banjo.

  34. Wii U WAS a next gen system before it came out, now that its out its the ONLY CURRENT GEN SYSTEM. PS4 and Xbox One are the only NEXT GEN SYSTEMS CAUSE THEY ARENT OUT YET. The second the launch they will also be CURRENT GEN.

  35. Wii U haters must have short-term memory. I got to repeatmyself: Here we go: Ignoring that PS2 was a rival to Gamecube and Xbox and not N64 or Sega Dreamcast. Also ignoring that 360 was not rivaling Wii or PS2.

  36. LOL @ SCUM BAG DRM NICKEL AND DIME FANBOYS NEVERMIND CHIP SETS
    THE WIIU IS THE ONLY NG SYSTEM ON EARTH INCLUDING PC I SHALL NOW BEHEADBIN BROAD DAY LIGHT ON A BUSY STREET EVERY SONY AND MS FAN ON THIS PLANET WITH A STATMENT OF FACT

    TWO SCREENS =NEXT GENERATION ALL CORE GAMING DEVICES NOW SHIP WITH TWO SCREENS ITS NEXT GEN

    3DS TWO SCREENS AND NOW WIIU TWO SCREENS OK GOTBTHAT FACT FIRMLY IN YOUR HEADS

    PSP VS DS DS CLEARLY DESTROYED TWO SCREENS VS ONE

    PSVITA VS 3DS AGAIN VITA FIRMLY DESTROYED AGAIN TWO SCREENS VS ONE ADD 3D NO GLASS’S

    ITD CLEAR THAT ALL HANDHELD ABD HOME GAMING DRVICES ARE CLEARLY NOW SHIPPING WITH “””TWO SCREENS”””

    TO DENY THIS IS TO BE A IGNORENT SONY OR MS FAN WOMEN FACT

    XBOX ONE HAS NO SECOND SCREEN INTERGRATION IT HAS NO MOUSE POINTER REMOTE IT HAS NO CORE PRECISION MOTION CONTROLS

    IT ISNT ENGINEERING FACT NEXT GENERATION ITS OBSOLETE

    PS4 DOESNT HAVE TWO SCREEN INTERGRATION IT DOESNT SUPPORT AMAZING CORE LAG FREE 15 X HIGHER RESOLUTION MOTION CONTROLS IT HAS NO WII MOTION PLUS ITS

    OBSOLETE
    THE CHIP SET ALONE MAKES A CONSOLE NEXT GENERATION IF YOU THINK THATS TRUE YOUR A BLIND SAD ACT IDIOT FANBOY

    END OF ARGUMENT YOUR A BLIND MORON

    WIIU 35MB GPU CATCH VS PS4 512K CATCH CLEARLY 70 X BIGGER

    PS FANS ARE IDIOTS

  37. ps4 total catch gpu and cpu =4.5mb

    wiiu total catch 38mb over 8 x ps4 this catch isnt there to look pretty on a die is it JESUS LETS PRETEND IT DOESNT DO ANYTHING LOL

    PS4 GPU 512K CATCH
    WIIU LATTE GPU 35MB CATCH 70X BIGGERBTHAN PS,4S

    NOT 7 70X BIGGER THERES ROOM FOR 70X MORE DATA ON THE GPU THAN PS4 70 FUCKING TIMES MORE…

    NO GPU CPU OR COMPANY WOULD HAVE PUT THAT THERE FOR NO FUCKING REASON ITS THE HUGEST GPU CATCH IN GPU HISTORY

    SO LET GO OF FANBOY FANTASYS AND SEE COMMONSENSE IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE

    ONLY A MORON IGNORES FACTS

  38. wiius gpu shadersvrops and texture units take up a tiny area on the gpu theres a HUGE AREA DEDICATED TO CUSTOM FIXED FUNCTION ITS CLEARLY THERE FOR THE WORLD TO SEE

    FUCKING IGNORENT DRM LOVING NO USED GAMES LOVING OUT DATED CONTROLLER LOVING MS AND SONY FAN BITCHES

  39. I completely agree. I have quite an outdated PC and I can play some games that are playable on the PS3 and XBox 360. I don’t care about the small differences, it looks good enough.

  40. lol @ gflops iv seen 500 ish gflop gpu cards beat 1500gflop cards in gaming benchmarks

    how do u in real world feed those flops with SHIT SLOW GDDR5 AND A TINY LOL 512K CATCH

    GFLOPS LOL WII IN GFLOPS WAS LIKE MANY MANY MANY TIMES BELOW PS3 ITS GAME WEN DEVELOED PROPERLY WERE GORGOUS AND IN HD WITH AA AD AF ON DOLPHIN LOOKED OUT OF THIS WORLD

    A VIDEO-GAMING MACHINE ISNT A COMPUTER PEOPLE NEED A SERIOUS REALITY CHECK AND IN ALL HISTORY FIXED FUNCTION CHIPS AND CIRCUITRY DESIGHED FOR A PURPOSE MASSIVLY OUT PERFORM CPUS OR FPU UNITS AT THE SAME TASK

    EXAMPLE WIIU HD SURROUND SOUND 5.1 GAMEPAD SPEAKERS PLUS WII REMOTE SPEAKER NO CPU AT ALL JUST A TINY 120MHZ DSP

    PS4 WILL WASTE A ENTIRE JAGUAR CORE AT 1600MHZ JUST TO DO THE SAME THING

    WAKE UP TO THE TWIN “””INDUSTRY”””” BOX’S OF SHAME ,OBSOLETION,DRM,X86 OVER HEATING CPUS WITH MASSIVE CASES TO ALLOW AIR FLOW

    FUCK OFF INDUSTRY

  41. He’s perfectly right, it’s not about the power of the console or the graphical leap, it’s about the games, and I think PS2 and Wii proved that point when they were pitted against their contemporary consoles (GameCube, XBOX, PS3 and XBOX360).
    This is a simple game of logic, the console that offers numerous good games is bound to sell more units, especially if these games are exclusives or first parties.

  42. lets have it right im SICK and tired of CONSOLE being used to discribe INDUSTRY

    EXAMPLE CONSOLES HAVE POOR FPS CONTROLS AND HEAVY AUTO-AIM

    CORRECTION SONY AND MS CONSOLES HAVE POOR FPS CONTROLS WII-WIIU HAVE WORLD CLASS FPS CONTROLS STOP SAYING CONSOLES ARE DEAD CONSOLES ARE POOR FPS CONTROLS

    ITS SONY AND MS AND 3RD PARTYS TO BLAME NOT WII NOT WIIU THEY HAVE FANTASTIC FPS CONTROLS..

    AGAIN DRM-PURCHOSE CONTROL-MANDATURY HARDDRIVE INSTALLS RE PAYMENT OF USED GAMES ETC

    PEOPLE USE CONSOLES TO DISCRIBE THIS ITS NOT “”CONSOLES”” ITS MS AND SONY CONSOLES STOP ETHER INCLUDING NINTENDO -OR PRETENDING THEY DONT EXIST

    THIS INDUSTRY AND ITS SUPPORTS NEED BEHEADING THERE FILTHY UN GIDLY SCUM

    XBOX ONE IS A INDUSTRY BOX NOT A GAMERS BOX PS4 IS A INDUSTRY BOX NOT A GAMERS BOX

    HARDCORE MUST BE DESTROYED

  43. WiiU

    pro pad-gamepad-wii remote/plus-nunchuck-balance board-wiiu zapper-classic pad pro

    camera -3ds link up

    CLEARLY NEXT GENERATION

    VS

    DUALSHOCK 4 AND A CAMERA OR XPAD AND A CAMERA

    LOL THERE DEAD

  44. Lol it seems like every developer that doesn’t make games for the system has nothing but bad to say about it but those who actually DEVELOP for the system and has had experience in doing so have nothing but good to say

    1. From HD it is hard to go much higher, and they kinda burned those suits in the seventh generation (Not that they matter that much to begin with, but oh well).
      Their consoles are going to depend on higher polygon counts and faster CPUs to even make a difference from Wii U and the seventh generation consoles.

  45. phycological fact PEOPLE HATE CAPS LOCK AND COMPLAIN ABOUT IT

    BUT ITS PHYCOLOGICALLY PROVEN YOUR MORE LIKELY TO GET YOUR POST RED

    I USE DELIBRATLY POOR GRAMMAR SO AS TO EXPOSE FOOLS FROM THINKERS

    THINKERS SEE PAST THE TROLLNLIKE CAPS AND SEE THE GOD LIKE CONTENT

    HATERS AND FOOLS IMIDIATLY ATTACK THE GRAMMAR AS THE CONTENT CANNOT BE ATTACKED AS ITS THE TRUTH

    IM ONE EVIL MAN WHEN IT COMES TO PHYCOLOGICAL WAR FARE I KNOW ALL TRICKS AND ANGLES

    SKYPE NEXT GEN GAMING NO PLAN NO LOL @ THAT COCK SUCK BULL SHIT

    GAMEPAD IS NEXT GEN

    1. Come back when you’ve learned the definition of what constitutes a generation.
      ……..
      Actually, no.
      Don’t come back, whether you learn or not.
      You’re better off under your bridge.

    2. Personally I think Wii U is more next generation than XBone is. What does the XBox do that Wii U is not already doing? Also don’t forget too Nintendo will introduce an all new Wii U above the deluxe. It is not a redesigned but an extra trim. Take the 2011 Kia Optima. When it first arrived it had available the LX and EX. months later Kia introduced the SX. In other words, a Wii U SX will be unveiled at E3.

  46. I must say, the Wii U looks a lot more interesting since the release of the Xbox One. I think ill wait for the PS4 release before making my decision. I have an Xbox 360 and feel I missed out on a lot of top games by not going for the PS3. Do you agree?

  47. ps4 tiny ass catch and loads of gflops and no fixed function

    wiiu less flipflops but way way way more catch feeding them and fixed function

    different horses for different courses wiiu is next gen

    jesus what wiiu does in catch ps4 has to send out trucks to collect that slow ass data from far far away main ram

    ps4s design IS GARBAGE it will have a huge casing like xbone too

    lol there seriously dumb thinking suitcase sizedvbox’s with massives fans are what we want on are tv stands NO THANKS

    i already got sky box surround box and bluray player a wii and wiiu

    were do i put xbone or ps4 BUIKD A FUCKING EXTENTION LOL

    1. Can someone tell me why Xbone is next generation? Where is the innovation at for gamers? Those TV features are the same damn think Roku TV and Apple TV can do for less plus Ford’s Sync systen for making the voice as the remote. Like a four dour sedan, XBox one will not allow no more then 5 people in the living room. So again how is the XBox One next generation when none of those features or the controller are something that was already done. At least Wii U has a Gamepad giving us only God.knows what it can do when a developer really works it to its full potential. Why because the Xbox One has 8 core?

      1. Lastly: Wii U has a lot of games right? Right now the base has 8gigs and the deluxe has 32gigs and Xboxone has 500 gigs right? Now let’s say that Wii U forced people to download their games on the console. Those 32gigs would be used up. Zelda is a big as game. The base Wii U could not handle that. In other words, Xboxone will go through 32 gigs a lot faster than Wii U will. If xboxone was a car, it would be a.gas guzuler.

        1. Also since Xbox one is more powerful with 8 cores I wonder how long.those 500gigs will last since players are.forced to download. My guess is 5 years. Alsoets.say you delete a game on your Xbox for more room and somewhere down the road you want to download it.again, will the XBone realize it being a new game or used game?

          1. Anyone who thinks.in the next 6 years a videogame console will need 12 cores in order to be considered next generation. is a.dumbass.

            1. It doesn’t need 8 cores now. Developers are just now starting to max out the hardware in the PS3 and 360 and IT could still be pushed further. There are only two reason I can think of for the gaudy specs of the PS4 and XBone.

              1. Sony and Microsoft are trying to out do each other.

              2. Sony and Microsoft made a machine powerful enough and structured in such a way that they won’t have to release another console again for over a decade if ever again.

              The first option is stupid, second option makes since from a financial stand point. They will take huge losses in the beginning, but in the long run will save money. However, this strategy only works if the public jumps all over the system and buys it like crazy.

              Pay no attention to those people that think you need absurdly gaudy hardware to produce impressive graphics. They have no idea what they are talking about. Generations are about succession in a product line. Not about a certain undetermined power-levels SOLELY made up in the minds of people whom care about nothing else. The XBOX ruined the PS2 in terms of power level. They were both 6th gen, XBOX lost, PS2 won. The N64 DESTROYED the PS1 in power level. They were both 5th gen, the N64 lost, PS1 was the victor. The XBOX 360 and PS3 annihilated the Wii in terms of power. They were all 7th gen and the Wii annihilated them in terms of sales of games and console making it the 5th best selling console of all time.

              There is no way of knowing how this 8th gen will turn out. There is no way to predict how the consumer will respond once all three console are available in force (meaning Nintendo has all their heavyweight games on the shelf to buy.)

              Price will be a great determining factor. If the Wii U can show off graphics that look as good as what the PS4 and XBone can do for far less money, it is gonna be tough to over come that and I think one of the reasons why the western gaming market and press are so biased towards Nintendo and are constantly attacking the Wii U’s power level is because they know that Nintendo is capable of doing just THAT.

              Looking at Wii games such as Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Smash Bros Brawl, DKCR, Kirby Epic Yarn, and even Gamecube games such as StarFox Assault, Smash Bros Melee, Rogue Squadron 2 and 3, and Luigi’s Mansion simply upscaled to 1080p RESOLUTION should be VERY afraid of seeing Wii U games built from the ground up in native 1080p HD graphics.

              1. God damn! You’re just laying out the facts! I don’t get why these devs are hating on the Wii U being so weak when past consoles that weren’t as strong as the other won as being the best console of their generation! Man seriously! It’s like they just don’t learn! Like they’re kids who don’t learn from their mistakes!

    2. throw out the blu ray player perhaps?
      i seriously think you’ve jumped the gun buying a next gen console to last you another 8 years before even seeing the competitors. i imagine this is why you decide to complain about them already?

  48. Wii U could have been better with 4GByte of ram and with cpu and gpu clocks setted to 2,2Ghz and 800Mhz respectively, for a mere 20$ more in the retail price..

      1. I’m going to be nice and tell you the fact of the matter without flaming you:
        The XBOne is a next-generation console, because generations are not determined by the specs or features of said consoles.
        Generations are determined by release sequence. Therefore, the Wii U, PS4, and XBOne are all next-generation consoles.
        Tech and features have never, and will never, define what generation a console falls under.
        However, whether or not a “next generation” is good or bad, is dependent upon the personal opinion of the viewer.
        I personally feel the X-Box One is the worst possible form that microsoft could have chosen for their newest generation of the X-Box brand.

        We might as well start calling it the Ex-Box, because most of its features don’t even measure up to the gaming focus that the brand is known for.

  49. Thanks Eric Sellers. Unlike Wii U haters who gets told Wii U is next generation, I’m going to just accept the fact the EX Box One is next generation but is just a piece of shit.

  50. Great hardware base?

    I hope he doesn’t mean install base. If he does, that’s proof he has no clue what he’s talking about…

  51. so these GFLOPS of ps4 how do you keep them fed with data with a tiny fucking 512k sram catch and extremely slow gddr5 witch has poor latency like gddr4 did

    i love how people apply no fucking commonsense to this and pc architecture is fucking terribly inefficient

    wiiu is SUPER EFFICIENT IN COMPARISON

    DATA THRU PUT AND ACTUAL REAL WORLD PERFORMANCE IS WHAT MATTERS NOT FREAKING GFLOPS

    TINY CATCH MEMORY POOR PC DESIGN (NOT A CONSOLE DESIGN) AND SLOW GDDR5 (HIGH LATENCY)

    WiiU’s memory speed in comparison is like 20 x faster and its gpu catch 70 x bigger i think wiiu is far far far more balanced and efficient than ps4

  52. xbox one is considered last gen as in 1st gen….oh, not that xbox one? so confusing. btw who dafuq wants a console that only dedicates to sports? i dont even give a rats @$$ about sports so who do you think will win between the 3? sony or nintendo?

    1. I have another question this time about Wii U vs PS4′s catch: The Wii U has more catch while PS4 has little. Yet the Wii U has 3 cores vs. PS4′s 8. How would having more catch and a bigger GPU be a defense vs. PS4 having 8 cores when at the end of the day, the PS4 is still more powerful?

      1. IDIOT SORRY TO CALL YOU THAT BUT ARE U SUGGESTING PS4S THINGS I SAY THINGS THERE’S NO BETTER DESCRIPTION FOR THEM DONT REQUIRE CPU POWER!!!!!!! AND YOUR QUOTING 8 VS 3 AS IF 8 AUTOMATICALLY BEATS 3 DID YOU EVEN STOP TO LOOK AT EACH CORE INDIVIDUALLY NO YOU DIDN’T DID YOU AND WEN DID X86 ATOM COMPETETORS BECOME BETTER THAN CUSTOM POWERPC CORES IM INTERESTED AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW

        RIGHT A LESSON IS FACT !!!!!

        your obsessing over 8 cores wewre is the eyetoy kinect being processed COULD YOU TELL ME PLEASE

        WERE IS THE OPERATING SYSTEM BEING PROCESSED

        WERE IS THE HD SURROUND SOUND BEING PROCESSED !!!!!!!!!!<<<<<< ARE YOU NOW AWAKE OR DO I NEED TO KEEP AIRING THINGS THAT ARE COMMONSENSE !!!!

        WERE IS THE IO PROCESSED

        IS GDDR5 FAST IN LATENCY TERMS

        DO JAGUAR CORE POSES 4TO1 DATA COMPRESSION AND REAL TIME DECOMPRESSION IN HARDWARE GEKKO DO BROADWAY DO EXPRESSO DO

        DOES JAGUAR ANSWER NO

        8CORES VS 3 YOU SQUEALED

        WIIU ISNT RUNNING POINTLESS KINECT CAMERAS THAT DRAIN THE CPU AND OFFER NOTHING TO GAMERS

        WIIU ISNT DOING HD SOUND ON THE CPU IT HAS A DEDICATED PROCESSOR FOR THAT

        WIIU ISNT DOING OS AND IO ON THE CPU IT HAS A ARM CPU FOR THAT

        IS THIS SINKING IN YET THIS IS CALLED COMMONSENSE !!!!!!!

        AND WIIUS CPU ARE FAR MORE EFFECENT /CUSTOM/COMPRESSION READY AND THE WIIU CPU HAS A SINGLE CORE WITHA MASSIVE 2MB CACTH

        ALSO WIIU CPUS HAVE HIGH BANDWISTH EDRAM AS CATCH 2X THE BANDWIDTH OF OLD FASHIONED SRAM

        LOOKING AT IT AND GOING 8 VS 3 IS A BIT CHILDISH ISNT IT

        AND PS4 IS A PC ITS NOT REFINED AND TIGHT LIKE WIIU AS WIIU IS A SUOER EFFECENT DESIGN ITS A VIDEO GAMING BOARD

        NOT A PC

        JESUS THIS SHOULD BE COMMONSENSE

  53. They made some good points in the article. I’ll put in a few of my own points and observations, for anybody who cares to read them.

    Yes, the PS4/One are more powerful than Wii U. No, it’s not the same difference as we saw between PS3/360 and Wii. Other than EA’s garbage claim that Wii U can’t run Frostbite 2/3, (Cry Engine 3 is far more capable than either of them, and runs “beautifully” on Wii U according to Crytek) the Wii U can run all the upcoming graphics engines that will be standard on PS4/One, like Cry Engine 3/Unreal 4/Unity 4 and other comparable engines. It may not run them in the same capacity or with all the extra effects, but at least it can run them, which makes the gap much smaller. Unreal 3 and comparable engines were the mainstays of PS3/360 titles, and the Wii couldn’t run them at all, hence why the Wii looked terrible compared to PS3/360 games. Even so, titles like Mario Galaxy 1/2 or Sonic Colors look stunning, and at a glance, could be mistaken as a PS3/360 title.

    The gameplay elements that are possible with the Wii U are definitely game changers. Sure, it can appear to be gimmicky, or silly, depending on how it’s used. Some of the mini games on Nintendoland won’t impress people very much, but some games, like Zombi U have fantastic elements to them, that are only possible with the Wii U gamepad. Zombi U is a great example of what they are talking about here, as a true “next gen” game. It’s visuals aren’t anything extra special compared to what’s out there, but the extra tension it allows to be created when looking through your backpack, or the blips on the radar that keep you on your toes, and even the ability to use it to scan your environment (which was also seen in Resident Evil Revelations) are all elements that simply wouldn’t work or feel the same if you tried to do them on the PS4/One, at least not without owning a Vita/compatible tablet.

    Games sell consoles, not graphics. Not every console that won it’s generation had the best graphics. Gamecube and Xbox were superior to PS2, but games sold the PS2 beyond those consoles. Exclusive games moved Wii consoles faster than PS3/360 (price helped too, and may help the Wii U as well) The Wii U is lacking in games at the moment, and some of the 3rd parties aren’t being helpful, but the games are coming. The upcoming NIntendo direct has the potential to really get excitement back up. Bayonetta 2 / X / Smash Bros / Zelda / Retro Studio’s Project / Mario Kart / 3D Mario all can be potential system sellers.

    It’s interesting how similar the situation between the Wii U and PS4 are to the 3DS/Vita situation. The Vita had better specs, more abilities, a decent price compared to the 3DS’ initial pricing, and it’s lineup of games seemed much better than what the 3DS offered. The 3DS was “dead in the water” and was going to be destroyed by the Vita. Then suddenly, the games started to pour out of the flood gates for the 3DS. Turned out that the gap in graphics weren’t quite as big as initially thought. (Resident Evil Revelations is darn near as impressive as Uncharted Golden Abyss) The price cut on 3DS certainly helped, but the fact you had to buy an expensive memory card to play games on the Vita played nearly as big a factor. Vita’s game library dried up. Some of these factors could end up repeating with the Wii U and PS4. The price may end up being significantly different, with or without Wii U price cuts. Games could start flowing for the Wii U, the type of games that will move consoles, and sell in the 10+ millions. (3D Mario/Mario Kart/Smash Bros etc.) Games like Zelda, Retro Studio’s game, and “X” could showcase that the Wii U’s graphics aren’t that far off from the PS4. While the PS4 library may not dry up like Vita’s, the potential for using the same system for used games as the Xbox One and non backwards compatibility, could be a factor like the expensive memory cards.

    Time will show whether or not the Wii U can sell well in comparison to PS4/One. If I was a betting man, I’d put my money on the Wii U surprising most people, and selling nearly as many, if not more than PS4 or One. If these coming titles move Wii U consoles, and even angry EA start porting their games to Wii U, I have no doubt it will succeed. If not, we may see a new Nintendo console in another 2 years that has more power than PS4 or One. They have the money and the means to do it.

  54. My samsung es8000 led hdtv + nintendo wii u = xboxone with my tv i can voice command , hand gestures+ more ect. My ” U” has tvii, games + more Lol, xoboxone looks like a big ass set top box/dvr for sure

    1. Or if people who are into set top boxes simply buy a Roku for $50. It does what XBone does but for far less money. It even has standard HD.

  55. WIIU CPUS ARE RISC POWERPC AND ONLY 4 STAGE PIPES LONG ITS THE FASTEST 4 STAGE PIPELINE RISC CPU IN EXISTENCE (JAGUARS 16 STAGE PIPE LINE 4 X LONGER AND CISC NOT RISC)

    WIIUS CPU ARE MORE EFFECTIVE EFFICIENT THAN AMDS JAGUARS

    WIIUS CPU CORES HAVE EDRAM AS LEVEL 2 CATCH 2X PLUS BANDWIDTH OF SRAM

    WIIUS CPUS SUPPORT 4TO1 DATA COMPRESSION WITH REAL TIME DECOMPRESSION IN HARDWARE EXAMPLE 3MB CATCH BECOMES 12MB CATCH JESUS REAL NINTENDO FANS ALREADY KNOW THIS GEKKO HAS IT

    WIIU CPUS HAVE DEDICATED GRAPHICS DATA FIFO PIPES FOR BLASTING GRAPHICS DATA TO GPU AGAIN SUPPORTING 4TO1 COMPRESSION

    WIIUS CPU CORES COMMUNICATE WITH CATCH IN 4 CLOCK CYCLES BROADWAY WAS 7 ALMOST 50 % FASTER

    wiiu doesnt compete with xbone and ps4 in cpu its a completely different design

    xbone and pc4 have 8 cores DOING EVERYTHING LIKE A PC DOES

    WIIU HAS 3XCORE MAIN CPU A DEDICATED DSP HD SOUND PROCESSOR AND A ARM CO CPU THE WORD LOAD IS SHARED THIS AINT FUCKING ROCKET SCIENCE ITS SIMPLE LOGIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PLEASE STOP SAYING 3 VS 8 YOUR IGNORANT !!!!!!!!!!!

    POWERPC 750 IS IBMS GREATEST AND PUREST EVER CORE NINTENDO CHOSE A GREAT CPU ITS THE ONLY CPU NASA SENDS INTO SPACE FACT GO CHECK IT OUT

    WIIU HAS 3 CORE CPU AND A ARM CPU AND A DSP VS 8 CORES NOT 3 VS 8 PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS

    WIIU RUNS AS A VIDEO GAMING DEVICE NOT A BLOATED PC ITS VASTLY MORE EFFICIENT

    XBONE IS RUNNING WINDOWS 8 ON THOSE CORES (HUGE BURDEN) XBONE IS RUNNING KINECT 2 ON THOSE CORES (HUGE BURDEN) XBONE IS RUNNING HD SOUND ON THOSE CORES (HUGE BURDEN)

    WIIU ISNT RIGHT HAS PENNY DROPPED LOL

    COMMONSENSE DIED LONG AGO LUCKY I STILL GOT SOME

    1. And what do you mean? Everybody knows that XBOX 1 will be stronger, but Nintendo has more popular games. And even if it has only 3 cores, it´s still superior to the current gen. A real gamer wouldn´t judge a console by the number of corses, but instead by the quality of the games,which is not only definied by the graphics.
