Nintendo Wii: iPhone More Powerful Than Nintendo Wii?

The iPhone is reportedly more powerful than the Nintendo Wii according to a developer at Telltale Games.

The Tales of Monkey Island developer made the intriguing comment when talking about frame rate problems with the Nintendo Wii version of the popular title.

“Frame rate issues will probably get sorted out eventually, but keep in mind that the Wii is just not a powerful console. An iPhone is much more powerful than a Wii, even.”

  1. Well, the Wii is awesome, but I wouldn’t trade my iPhone 3G S for anything!! I’d rather have the phone than the Wii!!

  2. This may be true due to the fact that the iPhone is more like a COMPUTER, a COMPUTER and a home CONSOLE are completely different.

  3. Well, we’ll never see a game like Super Smash Bros Brawl for an iPhone. Maybe he talked about proportions, or I DON’T KNOW.

  4. He failed to mention that the iPhone isn’t streaming off a disk and displaying the output on a giant television, which will obviously affect frame rate much more than a crappy 4 inch screen.

    1. The iPhone doesn’t need a disk and has a screen built into it. Wii doesn’t have those features. Plus the iPhone has a harder time projecting imagery. Like you said, the Wii gets a giant television to transmit data onto. Seems pretty easy to work out frame rate issues that way. Oh yeah, and that “crappy 4 inch screen” you mentioned, has better graphics and frame rate than 80% of the games for Wii.

  5. Pretty cool post. I just came by your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your posts.

    Any way I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon!

  7. Well, the Wii is cool, but sooooooooo weak. You can’t deny that its graphical, sound, and online qualities are the shittiest of this generation. I can believe that the iPhone is more powerful. It’s like a portable computer!
