Nintendo representatives at the Eurogamer Exhibition has told Total Revue that the Wii U is 19x more powerful than Sony’s PlayStation 3 console. The person who was told this claims says that he doubts that this is the case judging from the software which he played during the event. Nintendo themselves haven’t really commenting on the specifications, with developers saying that Wii U is slightly more powerful than current video game consoles on the market.
“Nintendo representatives on the day informed me that it was “19 times more powerful than PS3”. Having spent a decent amount of time with the launch software I doubt these claims, as the games on show at the expo appeared directly comparable to Xbox360 and PS3 titles and certainly no better. Having said that, the games are launch titles and the software can only improve in scope, gameplay and visual flair as developers get to grips with the hardware.”
