Kotaku - When you think of "Nintendo", you think of plumbers. You think of princesses. You think of fluffy clouds and lush green grass. You do not think of 13 year-olds waiting to pop caps in you.
Iwata - We're not going to deliver a system that has so much horsepower that no matter what you put on there it will run beautifully," he continued, "and also, because we're selling the system with the GamePad—which adds extra cost to the package—we don't want to inflate the cost of each unit by putting in excessive CPU power." So if they didn't have the Wii u pad and the expensive parts then they'd be able to make the core CPU of the hardware more powerful. Can't wait for Xbox 720 and ps4
If you care so much about graphics then why don't you game on PC?
I've got a pc but I prefer the ease of consoles. Also pc doesn't get a lot of games I can play exclusively on ps3 and Xbox. Pc doesnt get a lot of big releases that are made of high quality.
"I've got a pc but I prefer the ease of consoles." I just want to smash my face hard into concrete when I read this ignorant nonsense. With clients like Steam it's pretty much a plug and play setup. And most games support a gamepad. On top of that you can either play windowed mode or alt-tab out if you need to handle some other tasks. Hell in steam you don't need to alt-tab out, you can use the gameoverlay to browse for walktroughs and stay in touch with your friends. Stuff like "cross-gaming-chat" is like a huge standard since voice chat can be done with so many different tools. PC offers a far bigger game library compared to the consoles. Sure it doesn't have the Ps3 exclusives, but that doesn't mean it has no great games. Console people should give PC's far more credit when it comes to gaming. This isn't 1995.
"Ease of consoles"? Consoles this generation have mandatory installs, patches and OS Updates. They're essentially becoming PCs. Not saying that these are bad things, but there is no real "ease of use" for consoles anymore since you have to contend with the same things. May as well get a PC since it'll likely be more powerful and able to push better graphics. :P
Is that shigeru miyamoto or secret asian man.
what? lmao...360 only has 3 exclusives that arnt on pc, halo, gears, forza, you arnt missing anything by not owning a 360...ps3 on the other hand your right it has alot of quality exclusives that you cant play on pc...but pc definetly has their own great exclusives man, also the quantity is far more than ps3 + 360 + wii exclusives all together. shit a pc can emulate a wii. also ease of use? its just like a console, you get a pc with a decent graphics card, plug it into your tv via hdmi, grab a 360 or ps3 controller, sit on your couch and your ready to go.

I dont expect nothing from Nintendo but half-ass Mario games and really nothing more.
I dont expect nothing from Trolls but half-ass comments and really nothing more.
You do realize that ps3/360 has more Assasin's creed or CoD games then the Wii has Super Mario games this gen, but what good is research anyway? All it does is prevent yourself from being an idiot.
Good, coz God knows we already have enough of them.
No shit. That's what 3rd parties are supposed to be for.
Not to mention that a game doesn't have to be M rated to be a good game! There are shovelware M rated titles also.
That's good look for Miyamoto.
Good. I would rather have them focus on the Conduit franchise and Metroid FPS franchises. CoD gives sales and that ends the positives of CoD as a series.
HE SAID> "I think that the Wii U will be powerful enough to run very high spec games but the architecture is obviously different than other consoles so there is a need to do some tuning if you really want to max out the performance." Where in that statement do you get a confirmation that the WiiU specs are/will suck? He just said that you will have to work with the Hardware. 1) He's said that the other consoles won't be that big of a leap. 2) We know that every GEN. consoles do not MAX-out their whole potential. 3) So, Nintendo is saying that maybe other consoles will play Next gen ports at 50% H.Power but the WiiU may play them at 80-95% H.Power. The next part is just generalization by Miyamoto. He just said that he wasn't going to grab get the most powerful CPU in sacrifice for innovation. Again, there is no mention of Specs. BUT He already has said that the CPU will be powerful, just not as powerful as it Could be.
Nintendo don't need to make COD types of games to please the core gamers they just need the 3rd party support
I never expected Nintendo to make COD like games, theres enough companies that do. they just need the big third party games on thier system that are coming out in the next 6 months.
If the launch titles that are M rated dont sell on wii u, they will cease to exist on there.. Maybe a few here n there but thats it.. Most Nintendo fans arent into violence & competitive M rated games.. They like racing on rainbows in mario kart or chucking fans @ each other in smash bros but thats about it..
