Nintendo's Wii U a Game Changer for Next PlayStation and Xbox? - Unscripted Access Episode #22

"The Wii U launch lineup goes public, next-generation console talk, Dancing with The Stars integrates Uncharted within the series, and much more gaming news and nonsense that listeners have come to expect with Unscripted Access." (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Xbox may release, but it is unlikely if you read anything at all about Sony, they will release that soon. More like A year and a half from now for Sony. Also with Halo 4 right around the corner, what the heck is Microsoft going to do for their Launch? Halo 5 that fast?

Is the wii u really nextgen?, all the games ive seen for it look just like current Xbox 360 games, when the ps1 was done we saw a major leap in tech when the ps2 arrived, whrn ps2 was done we saw a major leap in tech wen ps3 arrived... I just dont see it for nintendo , wen ps4 comes and blows our mind and jumps leaps an bounds over wiiu will it still be called next gen?

Compare WiiU to the Wii then lol. Xbox720 and PS4 will be more powerful than WiiU, but it won't matter. That's just how Nintendo does it. Still comes down to the games. ZombiU looks like a game nobody wants to miss lol

I don't know. I do know that the PS3's games have just maxed out in graphical max in the past year or so. The Wii U has more power (Not tons more) it will be enough for some better effects and true HD games. Allot of 3rd party Ports that are on Wii U run at 1080p , and they also run at 60FPS as opposed to the PS3's 720p and 30FPS like on Black ops 2. Now when PS4 comes out I know that it will have more power than Wii U, but I don't expect any major graphical leap above what will be out for Wii U by the time it is released. The games that will make use of the Wii U's added power SHOULD BE (I HOPE) Zombi U and other non-ports. I must say I am a little let down at the NSMB for Wii U, I am sure it will be fun, but commmoooonnnnn. Why would Nintendo NOT showcase in a game the added power of the Wii U, instead of just upgrading a 2D side scroller. In a nutshell I don't think The PS4 will be to Wii U, what the PS3 was to Wii in terms of gaming.

" we saw a major leap in tech "

Hardware is slowly stagnating. There might be a leap. Not a major one.

No disrespect for Nintendo and their fans, but the MS & Sony consoles are and always will be the heavy hitters (on consoles). Unless the specs for those two are similar so yes the wii u is a game changer.

Hi, Just to be clear, Gamecube-PS2. Gamecube had twice the power of PS2, and PS2 one that Gens, console war. I LOVED my Gamecube, but it is true. I can also tell you, you are not going to see THAT huge of a difference in Graphics like PS2-PS3 for PS3-PS4.
ceballos77mx  +   1153d ago
Maybe not but there is a big difference on Xbox and ps3 launch games than current games, besides why is everyone declaring the wii u as the best when specs on the other consoles aren't even known.
I'm not bashing Nintendo but ill wait and see what the developers do on this system before buying (mostly on Zelda and metroid)

i like Sony but i will always support Nintendo, they always set the bar of creativity too high and the others follow. That has been the case for any generation.
