THQ head of global communications and studio representative for 4A Games Huw Benyon has clarified the company’s early statement that Wii U has a horrible and slow CPU. Benyon says that the comments that have been attributed to the company should be taken with a grain of salt. The developer says the comments were never based on an analysis of final hardware.
“Take any of the comments you’ve seen attributed with a pinch of salt,” Benyon said. “It’s certainly not been based on any kind of analysis of final hardware.”
“Our look at the Wii U extended to a very early look at some very early kits. We… we did some work on it, but we made a decision fairly early on that we weren’t going to commit further resource to it. So yeah, we didn’t go too far.”
