"bubububu the Wii U will notz be aazzz powerfullza as the 360 and PS3zz" - Unknown Developer

"The Wii U is a powerful, powerful machine and it can do a lot of cool new things. And so the game itself, moving it over to work on the Wii U was not much of a chore" - Gearbox (known Developer)

I dont doubt that , but even if not true , no dev would be saying otherwise before release .

The ony time they say something negative on future consoles they developp for , it's blanket vague statements as "next gen needs to be more powerful" from some .

Again not doubting it's true , but not following the devs' PR gospel for now .

The old bait and hook scenario!!!

Really if it's not obvious, I really don't know what to tell you.

How would most define modern technology? Speaking on PC specs, that could leave a window of at least 2 years!

It's also contradicts what nintendo themselves haven't disputed about the touchscreen not being multi-touch, by today standards all modern touchscreens are multi -touch.
Would that not in itself be a indicator in and of itself.

I for one could'nt care less if it had turbo boost technology and its name was KITT, I still plan on buying it along with the Orbis and Durrango or whatever they call them.

I just have my suspicion that everything isn't what they say it is! It's to much backpeddling going on.

What I mean by backpeddling, is that there developers in two of the companies already contradicting each other as far as where the wii u stands as far as power.

the wii u it's powerful compared to the wii,if we compare it to the ps3 or xbox 360 it'll look better but not by much and that it's not enough to make me want one.

I played a game on Wii U at last years E3 and
Can't wait to see full HD games running on it and I hear they added true analog sticks that click ! Either way E3 is around the corner and can't wait....

It's almost like the devs really really want to say the specs of the Wii U, it's just that Nintendo has a shot gun to the back of their heads preventing them not to till E3. lol

i really REALLY hope it doesnt get abandoned like wii did after a while.. once ps4/xb8 drop, i really hope 3rd party continues supporting it throughout its life cycle.. that controller is really cool
DivineAssault  +   1165d ago
Can i say DREAMCAST? Crazy controller with menus in modern day time.. it was awesome for a yr then ps2 killed it instantly lmao.. is that gonna happen when ps4/xb8 come around next year? I really dont wana waste my money if its gonna be ALL family friendly 1st party titles

Have you not been reading the past year about how many developers are onboard with the wiiU and its getting all the big titles and then some.

i know but for how long? These developers ALWAYS made games on Nintendo.. most were just under the radar.. There isnt a single NEW 3rd party company thats on board BUT @ least theyre getting the same titles as current gen.. jus like dreamcast got ps1 games that looked better for a while.. Im buyin wii u cuz i ALWAYS support Nintendo but i also grow tired of the BS.. I guess ill know after next year if good NEW games keep coming in

And yet it will still suffer from outdated limitations in the form of region locking.
