RE: The Wii-U’s Power Problem

Capsule Computers writes -
"Have you ever come across a news article, an opinion piece, or even a text-book that you knew was just plain wrong on a certain subject? Recently, whilst perusing Kotaku, I had come across just one such article. Namely the one titled The Wii-U’s Power Problem. Essentially what it is that this article states, with the assistance of unverifiable sources, is that the Wii-U will not be able to run Unreal Engine 4 games and will be a significantly gimped gaming console in comparison to the super-mega-power-houses that are the supposed Next-gen Xbox and Playstation consoles." (Industry, Tech, Unreal Engine 4, Wii U)

Really Kotaku really?

It's like they didn't even research it...
masterabbott  +   905d ago
Have to agree .. this article is spot and and very well written. Seems like Kotaku didnt do their research at all and instantly downgrading the power and potential that the Wii U has. Just because its called a WII doesnt mean it's not capable of running top quality games!.. get with it kotaku.

Stupid Idiot People denouncing the WiiU's power
It has Long been rumored and even stated by Nintendo themselves that the WiiU would have some form of a AMD HD4000 Series GPU in it along the lines of a HD4770 or higher.

Anyone with Knowledge of GPU's or the Common sense to look up a GPU chart would EASILY know that a HD4770 CRUSHES the GPU's in the PS3/360!

Epic even said that the unreal engine will be optimize to be use from iphones to home consoles, so if an iphone can run it so can the WiiU.

Countering an article based on hearsay with and article based on hearsay?

Is this a joke? How can either side be justified in writing such crap? Oh well. I'll try to look on the bright side. Err...It's great to see "gaming journalists" maintaining consistency.

You mean like how actual evidence was supported based on facts that we already knew about?

It was a good article, why are you people trying to make it seem like the article is Negative and against Nintendo?

Is Sony and Microsoft giving you that much sweet, sweet lovin' that you run around lying for them?
I hope you're getting paid.

Anyway... If it is all hearsay then why do "Trolls" have such strong opinions? Do you like to talk about "nothing" or are they just farting?

Some of these "rumors" can be confirmed if you follow the announcements of IBM and the of the various companies who gave the Ram to place directly on the augmented IBM Chip.

I know, I know... you want proof.

But I know what I've read and I know enough to know that (Trolls) don't know...

PS Fed. ;)

PS Fed. ;)" - Fantastic effort. Could you point me to one cold hard fact about the system specs you speak of? What's the throughput of the CPU? GPU? FLops output? Amount of RAM? RAM frequency? BUS bandwidth? Cache sizes?

No? Funny that. Not to worry. You just go back to telling everyone else they're wrong.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   905d ago
Can you? But LOOK at your Hypocrisy trying to make me a target for stressing a "meaningless opinion" the same as yours. Are you telling me I'M wrong?
So, why can't I say the same? ;)

My opinion, and the Nintendo fans opinions, are as good as yours buddy.

- AND THAT IS MY POINT.

BUT Here you are growling at me as if you got a leg to stand on -and you don't (you know you don't).

It's funny how SANCTAMONEOUS trolls get on the Wii U side of N4G. Almost as if they hold a DOUBLE STANDARD?

ps fed. ;) (When I said "FED" it means I fed you. I'm not trolling. I just like Nintendo).

My opinion, and the Nintendo fans opinions, are as good as yours buddy (maybe better since we fixate on Nintendo and we hardly see you guys on positive articles).

But Butt

Just for the record I didn't give an opinion. You do know what an opinion is don't you? I was completely objective. Neither side has any facts and as such the argument is moot. Throwing a hissy-fit won't change that.

By the way, thanks for proving my point about attacking people. I think you need to step away from the net for an hour or two. It may give you some perspective.

You might as well have asked, "You Mad Brah?"

Lame.

Don't mistake emphasis/theatrics with anger (there is no BOLD font toggle).

Also, Don't yell the Capital Letters in THIS or any Response.

;)

AND I think we are both making the same point BUT you are the 1st Responder, so that would mean you are faaaaaar more emphatic about your ignorance, than I am. Right?

Are you going to respond again?

Please. I understand you're looking for attention but there are better ways to get it. You don't need to be that sad little boy that throws hissy-fits for attention for attention anymore.

Good article, it makes sense, people have to stop thining negative about Nintendo's products, instantly believing that they are under powered and weak. From the specs and details outlined in the article we all can see that the Wii U will have enough power to run almost anything that any developer can throw at it.

Nice read.

So... Unreal Engine 4 it is.
