Shin’en Claims It’s Not The Hardware’s Fault If Devs Can’t Create Good Looking Wii U Games

Nintendo senkt Gewinnprognose

Vocal Wii U supporters Shin’en have told HD Warriors that it’s not the hardware’s fault if developers can’t create gorgeous Wii U titles. Shin’en developer Manfred Linzner told the publication in-depth information regarding the specifications of the console, which you can read below.

“The Wii U eDRAM has a similar function as the eDRAM in the XBOX360. You put your GPU buffers there for fast access. On Wii U it is just much more available than on XBOX360, which means you can render faster because all of your buffers can reside in this very fast RAM. On Wii U the eDRAM is available to the GPU and CPU. So you can also use it very efficiently to speed up your application.”

“The 1GB application RAM is used for all the games resources. Audio, textures, geometry, etc. Theoretical RAM bandwidth in a system doesn’t tell you too much because GPU caching will hide a lot of this latency. Bandwidth is mostly an issue for the GPU if you make scattered reads around the memory. This is never a good idea for good performance.”

“I can’t detail the Wii U GPU but remember it’s a GPGPU. So you are lifted from most limits you had on previous consoles. I think that if you have problems making a great looking game on Wii U then it’s not a problem of the hardware.”

Thanks to those who sent this in.

      1. Its next Gen in the sense its after the Wii. But not really next Gen specs. Its rather weak compared to the X1 and ps4

      2. Their is not a low specs limmit to say what is next gen or not ps4 and Xbox one are just more power next gen systems.
        Examples: wiiu = next gen console.
        Ps4 and Xbox one = even more powerful next gen console.
        Newer tech= next gen.
        gpgpu (wich the 3 consoles have)=next gen.

        Like

      15. @ you thought

        ok this is going to be a long comment so I apologize in advance but bear with me.

        ok first off, the wii u’s power has absolutely nothing to do with devs not making games for it. It has everything to do with the wii u not selling well. They don’t want to make games for it right now because they aren’t going to make enough money. The wii u can run the newest game engine from crytek, can run unreal engine 4, can run frostbite 3, and can run dx11, it has been done by a developer, so the wii u can run the graphics engines that are going to be used in the ps4/xbone, in other words it is not a hardware thing. I guarantee you that if the wii u’s had been flying off of the shelves this year and the install base was 8-10 million and growing instead of 3.5 to 4 million then all of these third party devs would absolutely be making their games for the wii u as well. It is ALL about the money for devs, they could care less about hardware spec as long as the system they are working on can run the graphics engines that they are using which the wii u can. If there is an opportunity to make money then they will make games for the wii u. Second, the xbox 360 and ps3 cannot achieve the same thing as wii u, LMFAO, not even close. Let me break it down for you. Xbox 360 has 512 mb of ddr2, wii u has 2gb of ddr3 (the same ddr3 in the xbone just less), xbox 360 uses an IBM 3 core cpu with 11 mb of non unified eDRAM, meaning it is only available to the cpu not the gpu, it is also an in order execution cpu which causes huge bottlenecks, the wii u uses a power 7 IBM 3 core cpu that is significantly more powerful than the one in the 360 and has 38 mb of UNIFIED eDRAM (same amount as the xbone except the xbones is not unified) meaning the ram is available for the cpu and gpu in the wii u, and the wii u cpu is an out of order execution cpu which means it can process information as it is ready instead of that info having to wait for info in front of it to be processed first which significantly improves performance (the xbone and ps4 both use out of order excecution as well) And now to the point that makes the biggest difference in graphics, the gpu. The xbox 360 uses an amd gpu that has 48 stream processors, and no that is not a typo, it literally has 48 stream processors, the wii u uses a heavily modified gpgpu from amd which has between 500-600 stream processors (the xbone has 750 stream processors), it is important to note that the gpgpu is significantly better than a standard gpu which the 360/ps3 have because the gpgpu in the wii can process info that is normally only able to be processed by the cpu, so in other worlds the gpgpu in the wii u can take some burden off of the cpu by processing physics and such to eliminate bottlenecks.

        To summarize:
        Wii u XBOX 360
        500-600 stream processors 48 stream processors
        2gb ddr3 512mb ddr2
        38 mb unified eDRAM 11mb non unified eDRAM
        out of order excecution cpu in order excecution cpu

        Bottom line is the architecture of the wii u is waaay more similar to the xbone than it is the xbox 360. Meaning that it will be significantly easier for devs to port a game to the wii u from the xbone than the xbox 360. The wii u uses an out of order excecution cpu, the xbone uses an out of order cpu, the wii u used 38 mb of super fast eDRAM, the xbone uses 38 mb of super fast eDRAM, the wii u has between 500-600 stream processors, the xbone uses 750 stream processors, the wii u uses ddr3 system ram, the xbone uses ddr3 system ram. The fact that the xbone uses an 8 core cpu and 8gb of ddr3 and the wii u uses a 3 core cpu and 2 gb of ddr3 isn’t that big of a deal. I will give you an example, my old gaming pc was using an old amd 4 core cpu and 4gb of old ddr2 memory, I was running a high end gpu though so I was getting really good gaming performance, the witcher 2 on high was getting between 45-60 fps. I have since upgraded my pc and am now using amd’s newest FX 8 core cpu with 8 gb of 1866 ddr3, but I am using the same gpu, and guess what? my fps in game are EXACTLY THE SAME 45-60. The new 8 core cpu and 8 gb of newer faster ram made zero difference. My point is that the wii u is using a gpu that is comparable to the xbox one (which is the most important thing), so porting to the wii u wont be difficult at all, the wii u isnt using some exotic architecture like the ps3 that is going to have to make devs re code the entire game. The amount of ram and numer of cpu cores will have ZERO effect on in game performance as long as the cpu and ram is fast enough to not bottleneck the system, which it is thanks to the 38mb of UNIFIED eDRAM, and the gpgpu being able to take an overburden off of the cpu. The reason that devs have been saying the ps4 is 40% more powerful than the xbone is because the ps4 is using a gpu that has nearly 1200 stream processors to the xbones 750, the ddr5 vs ddr3 and the cpu’s are a complete wash because the xbone is using the super fast eDRAM to make up for any latency issues produced by the ddr3 so the same goes for the wii u, the cpu is fast enough and the ddr3 memory in conjunction with the 38 mb of super fast unified eDRAM is enough, and is fast enough, so the only issue is gpu performance which the wii u’s is slightly less than the xbones. So to sum up, the wii u can run anything and everything that is multiplat to the 3 systems (PS4, XBONE, and WII U) with just slightly downgraded visuals, example, slightly shorter draw distance, slightly less particle effects, AA running at x4 instead of x8, basically things that you will NEVER notice unless you are comparing direct side by side images of the games running on the different platforms. Also the xbox 360 and ps3 CANNOT run a single game at native 1080p and 60fps, the wii u runs ALL of its games at native 1080p and 60fps. It takes around 16mb of eDRAM to produce 1080p, so it is completely impossible for the 360 to produce the same graphical quality as the wii u, period. Exclusives to the ps4 are a different story, because they are going to be trying to get every last bit of performance out of the system( example, naughty dogs the last of us on ps3) where with multiplats the devs try and give the same experience across all platforms.

        I hope this clears it up, I am not a Nintendo fanboy, but I am a tech junky and am bringing facts to the table and there has been a ton of false info being spread about the wii u’s power that simply isn’t true. I am not saying the wii u is some powerhouse because it is not. But neither are the other 2 next gen consoles. Bottom line is the wii u is going to have some graphically stunning games in the future, games that would have been impossible to run on the 360/ps3. So yes, the wii u IS a next gen console. And mark my words, once there is a larger install base for the wii u there will be a lot of third party games that come to wii u and will look great and graphically comparable to the xbone and ps4 versions. Like I said, the games wont look quite as good on wii u but the difference will be minimal, and since the wii u comes with a game for $299 and the xbone is $560 with a game (almost double the price) the wii u will be just fine and is a great deal. The Wii U will prove in time how graphically capable it is, and the only reason the install base is small is because of the lack of games, which will no longer be the case in the next couple months, plus in 2014 you have Mario kart, smash bros, beyonetta 2, X, and possibly the first next gen Zelda. By Christmas time 2014 the wii u I would be willing to bet that the wii u will have a comparable install base to the ps4 and xbox one, and people spelling the doom and gloom now for the wii u will have been proven wrong. Sorry for the loooong rant! Again, I am no fanboy, being a fanboy is completely ridiculous, I have never understood that mentality. Just play games, I mean who cares which platform you prefer. Everyone plays games to have fun, so if you have fun playing on xbox then buy an xbox, if you have fun playing Nintendo exclusives then buy a wii u, or be like me and buy all of the systems and enjoy the exclusives that all the consoles have to offer.

      23. Just because a new model Ford Focus doesn’t have the same horse power as a new model Ford Mustang doesn’t disqualify it as a new model or next generation of that model. Jeffrey Jordan is the next-generation from Michael Jordan. Is he better than his dad at basketball? Nope. Is he even close? Nope.

        Only idiots surmise that the Wii U is not next-gen because it doesn’t have the same horsepower as the XBOX One and PS4. The PS2 lacked the horsepower of the Gamecube and XBOX. Does that mean it was not 5th gen? Certainly didn’t hurt it in the sales department. Best-selling home console of all-time. The N64 ruined the Saturn and PS1 in terms of horsepower. Does that mean that the N64 was the only 4th gen console and the PS1 and Saturn were still 3rd gen? Not ONE console war was won by the most powerful console. Not at home, or on portable. Period.

        What Shin’en Games is saying is that the extra horsepower is not necessary in order to make games above and beyond the 7th gen.

        And taking into account that the Wii U has more confirmed titles running in native 1080p at 60FPS than the PS4 and XBOX One combined and that developers are struggling to even get 720p and 60FPS (or in the case of Killzone: Shadowfall to even get it locked down to 30FPS at 720p while using 3GB of RAM) simply throwing horsepower doesn’t make better games.

        Sony and Microsoft basically designed their consoles like PCs. It’s as straight-forward as you are going to get and yet developers are coming out of the woodwork saying how they are already reaching limits. The Wii U GPGPU has barely even been touched yet and already it is producing games in full native 1080p and 60FPS.

        It’s not about the hardware, it’s about the people that are using the hardware. If you put Grandma behind the wheel of a DW12 IndyCar and in the middle of a race…..let’s just say things would not work out too well. If you put an experienced driver like Tony Kannan or Helio Castroneves behind the wheel and they can do magic.

        What Shin’en is saying here is that developers are just being lazy. Nintendo built the Wii U in a way that it could produce games that look far better than the 7th gen with a lot less horsepower. They designed an efficient and elegant system that has a mountain of untapped potential.

I’m not immune to that either. It’s our human nature. We know that 1st party title from Nintendo are going to blow people’s socks off. Just looking at early gen games like Mario Kart 8 and Pikmin 3 are amazing enough.

Nintendo doesn’t really dive into the ultra photo-realistic art style on games which is a folly in my estimation because they could probably do it better than anyone else. Just looking at Pikmin 3 which started off as a Wii game and how good it looks and how Mario Kart 8 looks like CGI shows what Nintendo is capable of doing if they tried. The problem is they feel that the art styles they choose are the only style gamers want are aren’t really interested in doing anything else.

        A Zelda game even done in the artstyle shown at E3 2011 would end every graphic debate FOREVER. We’ll see what happens when we see the first footage of the game.

  3. This pretty much outlines the laziness of most developers. The technology in the Wii U is next-gen whether people like it or not. On the flipside, apparently developers are having trouble with the powerhouses, claiming that they’re already approaching the limit with their games. You can’t say that’s a hardware issue there, because both the PS4 and XO’s architecture are PC-based. Most mid-end PCs nowadays outclass them comfortably.

    Maybe the real reason lies in the airs the media’s putting on. Perhaps this next generation shift won’t last 10 years, but maybe only 3 or 4. Just a thought.

    2. The reason why the media is pushing that sentiment that the 8th gen will last a decade is because both Microsoft and Sony NEED it to last that long and they are using their vast resources to create spin. As we know Nintendo doesn’t need to make another dime for 30 years and could LOSE $250 mil a year and still not go bankrupt.

      Yes, developers are very lazy but I think there is more going on than that. It costs a lot of money to make games nowadays and even with all the school with programs and degrees in game animation of development there is a scarce pool of talented ready-to-go artists and developers out there to hire because most companies have totally unrealistic expectations for employment. That means those positions by and large remain unfilled. So these companies don’t have the capital, resources, and manpower to spend a whole lot of time on game development. They need to get games done and out the door ASAP in order to keep the lights on and that is why we get so much ‘cut and paste’ in the game industry nowadays. We are only going to see true innovation in games from the 1st party studios of Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. Maybe every once in awhile from a 3rd party.

      What I find puzzling from Microsoft is that even though Double-Helix is a 3rd party developer, Microsoft has their hands all over Killer Instinct and yet they can’t get it running at native 1080p at 60FPS. Money, resources, and manpower certainly is not an issue there. That’s a MAJOR 1st party next-gen title that is struggling to keep up with what was achieved last gen. Same goes for Killzone: Shadowfall. I still can’t grasp the fact that this game supposedly uses 3GB of RAM. Sony threw that in everyone’s face like it was so special. Immediately I saw how dire of a statement that was. Killzone: Shadowfall looks very good but nowhere near as good as Battlefield 4 which uses considerably less RAM than that. Not only that, they can’t even lock it down to 30FPS, much less 60FPS. And this is using 3GB of GDDR5 RAM??????

      *smh*

      I’ve been vocal about Nintendo and they foolish mistakes and they were foolish, but even with all that has gone wrong for Nintendo they still have a chance to bust this thing WIDE OPEN this holiday season. To me it seems like Sony and Microsoft bought into the troll-hype rather than study history. They let the trolls tell them what was necessary to win the 8th gen instead of them using common sense and looking at history to see how console wars are won.

      1. First off, you are misinformed, killzone shadow fall is native 1080p at 60fps for the multi player, and so far they have said the single player is running above 30fps, and they are pushing for 60fps in single player too, so that’s straight from the developer guerilla games, the killzone demo which was first unvieled was analysed by digital foundry and they said it ran a rock solid 30fps which would lead them to believe its capable of a higher frame rate, so why your saying they could barely achieve 30fps is beyond me!

        Either way PS4 is more powerful then both xbox1 and wii u, that is fact, but that doesn’t mean games wont come out on all 3 platforms which look and run great!
        More ram does not equal better frame rate etc but what it does mean is higher res textures, more things the said system can do simultaneously, and bigger worlds, less loading etc

        I have my PS4 pre ordered and i have my wii u, and every console from the last 30 or so years, i also game on my pc too, i find the kids who cant afford all platforms are the ones who get stuck up on numbers/power etc

        And i agree that most likely this coming generation will not last 10years, no generation technically has lasted that long, yes you could carry on playing ps2 while ps3 launched, but get real which serious core gamer done that?
        Not many i presume, either way we are now starting to see the law of diminishing returns kick in, for the average gamer, they cant tell the difference between PS4 and PS3 games, core gamers who own all platforms can like us!

        I still have friends who cant tell the difference between 30fps and 60fps LOL!
        and thats why none of this rubbish about which system is more powerful matters,
        and i agree with you that it is worrying that developers are not able to achieve native 1080p at 60fps easily on supposed next gen platforms!
        since i have been 1080p gaming over 10yrs on my pc LOL!

        I love console gaming for the exclusives that is all that matters,its why i buy every platform, the games its all about the games, and nintendo is at fault for not having killer apps which blow peoples socks off, at launch, and no game pad proof of concept! this is why wii u is struggling nothing more nothing less, i love my wii u, it has design flaws, like no Ethernet, no proper hard drive, and every wii u should have come with a pro controller etc
        But it is a great system, and is powerful, playing games like last of us, and then contemplating that wii u is more powerful then a PS3 gives me hope that we will see and play some amazing stuff on wii u!

        I HATE WHAT GAMING HAS BECOME, Microsoft came into it, and monetised everything, and have raped the industry, they gave the third parties too much power, and now its us gamers who are paying the price, just look at what they tried to pull with the drm crap, and always online etc, but when Sony didn’t do it, they were left in a bad position, and the ps4 pre orders were owning them and so they were forced to back track, but i wouldnt put it past them they could easily implement the bullshit once the install base has gone up for x1, it says so in every terms and conditions they can change it at any time!
        And after knowingly selling faulty hard ware with the xbox3FixME i dont trust them at all, any gamer who buys xbox1 at launch is a fool!

  12. The issue is only low sales. Anyway, I think what Linzner said below about Nano Assault is impressive:
    “…As ‘Nano Assault Neo’ never had a problem running at 60fps (including a 2nd screen rendering at 60fps on the GamePad) we didn’t have to do that kind of optimizations back then. For CPU usage ‘Nano Assault Neo’ only used the main CPU core. The two other cores were almost idle, beside a few percent used for our audio thread. So all in all ‘Nano Assault Neo’ only used a fraction of the currently available resources on Wii U and looks and plays quite nice. And for the future, don’t forget that in many consoles, early in their life cycle, not all resources were already useable or accessible via the SDK (Software Development Kit). So we are sure the best is yet to come for Wii U.’

  20. As someone who owns all 3 systems, I THINK, every developer wants an easy way out. Make a system similar to PC’s (PCs is always going to be far better than XB1 and PS4 or any console for that matter) so they can port games for all the systems without any thought. Then, why even bother with with the other 2 systems when I can get something 20x better on a PC. Which can be upgraded within 6 month if I so chose to.

    In all honesty, Nintendo this generation for systems is less powerful in specs as far as what, CPU, Speed? Maybe, possibly. I am not going to go into that because I am so not tech savvy in any way shape or form, but Nintendo is more powerful in innovation (at least to me).

    I feel it takes more time and thought to think out of the box and use the gamepad in a very interesting way. Instead of another FPS game, try to make an FPS game different by using the gamepad functionality. No one wants to take the time. It is for the most, cut and paste, cut and paste…. and cut and paste. (NOTE: Splinter Cell uses the gamepad in an interesting way)

    If a game is exactly the same on xb1 & ps4, but I can get a version of the game which is better on PC, why would I even bother with the version that are far less superior. If a game that is on all systems (including PC) but the Wii U version has something extra to offer because of the gamepad functionality, then I would go for that version because it has something interesting to offer me as a gamer even tho, graphically it may be less superior.

    At least, that game is offering something new to experience then I have never seen before being made for a game.

    Granted there are some games on the PS4 that I am getting, like “the division” because it is not coming to the Wii U (which I think is a missed opportunity there with the gamepad) and some exclusives to the PS4 that I think are going to be amazing.

    Compare a game that came out with the 360/ps3 at launch to now. THEY ARE HORRENDOUS looking and do not hold up well nowadays.

    In all honesty, as a gamer, I do not see anything superior graphically on the ps4/xb1 and the general consumer will not see it as well. They can talk about dirt under the fingernails, but am I really going to concentrate on how beautiful dirt is on someone when I am shooting someone in the face?

    Choose your evil of which system you want, but all this complaining means nothing if all in all the game offers nothing. I stopped playin Forza after 3 because it just got boring. I stopped playing CoD after 3 because it was the same game with a hint of a different story line. I am a gamer that wants something to its sequels. This goes the same for Nintendo as well.

    I love Battle Royal for the PS3, but the game does seem a little mismatched as far as gameplay goes, but it is still fun to play and it is COMPLETELY different FOR ME than Smash Bros. They both offer different gameplay while maintaining a similar feel of what Smash Bros was.

    And I stopped all together playing any EA Sports games because minor improvements doesn’t add much for me and selling a game with that and an updated roster does not cut it as NEW for me. Fifa 14 for the Wii U (Actually FIFA 13 to be exact) added some different play elements, but not much at all to warrant the game as buyable (thank goodness for rentals). As far as that is concerned, games like that need a patch to upgrade the roster every year. Simple $10 dollar micro transaction.

      I am already trading in my xbox360/ps3 for the PS4 as they have games that “I WANT TO PLAY”. At the same time, I think it is kind of lazy to make “lazy ports” of games and hope they sell for a quick buck and then get mad that it did not sell well at all. I already had it for the other console, so no need for me to get it again. I think, that is where things get a little iffy and companies need to realize most people already had that game, so unless you are offering something drastically different ala Deus Ex: Human Revolution, then… really there is no point

      Yes, there is a small install base for the Wii U at the moment, but if people are not willing to try to make games for the system aside from Nintendo, then yes, no one will be interested in getting it to begin with and no one wants a lazy port of games. ME3 is a great game and no need for me to get it on the wii U. Yes, the wii u got a great game that EVERYONE pretty much has already and for those who wanted to play it for the Wii U, do not even get the DL content. Slap in face

      A thought at hand, all consoles usually have a slow start in sales and I think Microsoft is going to get left behind this time around, just a guess. They are already saying there is a first day update, via wii u style.

      All in all, to each there own right?? I usually buy all systems, this year I am only sticking with 2 and maybe the vita…. but that is a stetch

  22. CLAIM NO BODY CLAIMED ANYTHING MY NINTENDO NEWS

    THEY STATED SAYING CLAIMS IS CALLING THEM OUT SUGGESTING THERE LIARS

    ARE YOU SUGGESTING THERE LIARS MY N NEWS!!!!!!!

    WHAT PART OF BUILT FROM SCRATCH CUSTOM IBM MCM HIGH BANDWIDTH LOW LATENCY DESIGN NOT COMPUTE WITH THE DUMB SONY FANBOYS ETC

    LOL AT TRYING TO SUGGEST A X86 NON GAMING SYSTEM ON CHIP WITH MASSIVE LATENCY ISSUES BEING HACKED INTO PS4 IS A GOOD IDEA OR A EFFICENT DESIGN

    LOL ITS A CHEAPBPILE OF CRAP FROM THE LOWEST NON PROFITING BIDDER ADM ITS A CHEAP ASS SOC NOTHING MORE

    LOL AT THE SHEER IGNORENCE OF TRYING TO SAY 200NS GDDR5 FEEDING READ AND WRITE TO THE CPU AND GPU WITH A HACKED SLOW GPU FEED TO TRY AND GET AROUND THE NO GPU RAM BUILD OF AMD’S SOC DESIGN

    A HACK JOB WITH SLOW RAM TECHNICAL FACT !!!!

    200NS SLOW MEMORY IN AND OUT TO THE MOTHER BOARD FOR ALL PROCESSING TASKS FEEDING A SOC AMD DESIGN NOEVER SUITED TO GAMING

    FACTS CANNOT BE DENIED PS4 IS A POOR PC X86 DESIGN FACT WITH SLOW RAM

    MADE ON THE CHEAP ADMITTED BY PS4 HEAD GUY ,SONY CANNOT AFFORD EDRAM OR A ACTUAL CONSOLE DESIGN

    THEY SOLD OUT AND PUT A CHEAP PC IN A BLACK BOX WITH A 1996 CONTROL PAD

    JOKE JUNK BOND STATUS COMPANY FACT!!!

    EVERY SINGLE BENCHMARK WERE GDDR5 VS DDR3 IS FEEDING A CPU THE DDR3 IS 50% STRONGER THAN GDDR5

    GDDR5 IS HALF THE RAM PERFORMANCE OF DDR3 FOR CPU VS DDR3

    SIMPLE LOGIC GOES A LONG WAY HAY GUYS

    WIIU HAS SUB 5NS EDRAM AND A CUSTOMIZED MCM FOR LOW LATENCY AND HIGH BANDWIDTH BOTH THE GPU AND CPU FEED FROM CATCH LIKE FAST RAM

    AND THE DDR3 MAIN RAM IS ALSO MUCH MUCH FASTER THAN GDDR5 IN LATENCY AND HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE HEARD ABOUT CUSTOM HIGH SPEED PRE FETCH’S

    YOU CODE A WIIU IN ITS MASSIVE AND MULTIPUL CATCH MEMORYS YOU FEED THE GPU AND CPU AT HIGH SPEED AND HIGH BANDWIDTH

    THE MAIN RAM BECOMES A FEED NOT A MAIN MEMORY EVERYTHING IS FED THRU THE HIGH SPEED SUB MEMORY

    32MB EDRAM,2MB EDRAM,1MB SRAM AND 3MB EDRAM TO CPU
    38MB OF SUPER FAST WORK CATCH MEMORY

    WIIUS GPU EDRAM ALSO GIVES THE RAM AND GPU A MASSIVE BOOST IN PERFORMANCE LIKE

    POST PROCESSING,OVERDRAW,FILL RATE,TRANSPARANCYS,AA,COMPUTE SHADING

    THE CPU AND GPU ARE MUCH CLOSER AND FASTER THAN PS4 FOR EXAMPLE ITS DESIGNED TO BE FAST AND EFFECTIVE

    COMMONSENSE

    SHIN’EN ARE CALLING OUT THE SCUM INDUSTRY AND RIGHTLY SO

    okaaayyyyyy thats like saying a bog shit is a high class meal in a fancy resterant

    SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH YOUR PC4 AND DUALSHOCK NOT NEXT GENERATION IN THE SLIGHTEST

    LOVING THE CONTROLLER CHOICE GUYS

    wiius memory is effectivly 40x faster than ps4s

    sub 5 nano seconds vs 200ns

    even if reading from the ddr3 its sub 20ns vs 200ns

    ps4 has to use a hack by pass to allow the gpu to read the main ram JOKE DESIGN

    wiius edram and ddr3 are linked directly to the gpu and cpu NO HACK JOBS NEEDED

    ps4 has lots of rops /wiiu has lots of edram

    its simple logic wiiu has the power to compeat but ps4 does not have the innovation the controls or the 1st party or the cadh to compeat

  24. Yet Chris just goes by the basics thinking the more cores then the better it is. Ignoring that a single Wii U core outperformes two PS4 cores. Also don’t forget, 2 of the PS4’s cores are used for the OS. So lets that leaves 6 for gaming. Interesting 3 Wii U cores and 6 PS4 cores. 3 goes into 6 evenly. So you really think PS4’s graphics and sound is really going to be soooooo much better than Wii U’s? Can Sony make a way where it takes 1gb for the OS?
