Developers Using Underclocked Wii U Dev Kits

A white paper published by Hit Detection suggests that developers are currently using underclocked development kits which resulted in Nintendo not showing actual 3rd party gameplay footage during last weeks Electronic Entertainment Expo.

The story is too old to be commented.

Seems a small issue compared to Nintendo needing to basically build an social network presence from scratch...

You mean as in they need to enable Facebook and Twitter access?

What in the world does that have to do with underclocked dev kits?

Lyle912654d ago

Considering a lot of developers are saying the dev kits they have are more powerful than PS3/360, then the fact that they are under-clocked would be amazing.

Exactly what I was thinking. Would be extremely awesome if it was a pure powerhouse. Though I don't believe power is everything, it would certainly be a nice addition to see the Wii U burst out some insane graphics.

oooooo wont be surprised if these 'underclocked' wii u dev kits have better gfx output than both x360 and ps3. :P

If they are, imagine what the gfx would be like if it is overclocked :D

Fool me once nintendo shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

The Wii fooled you...? If graphics are that important, couldn't you tell beforehand that it was a bad idea...?

Not even a single trailer impressed me so what can an overclocked wii u would do?

TheViper2653d ago

If the Zelda demo or bird demo did not impress you, might I suggest you go watch some CGI animated movies, have a coke and a smile.

those were not gameplays, just tech demos i remember 360 putting some awesome tech demos but never really seen those kind of graphics in an actual gameplay

TheViper2652d ago

These were rendered on the fly using underclocked dev kits and interactive. And from the X360 demos I remember (some film noir scene and a car crashing) it has exceeded those long ago.

What is too late? It's just been announced xD

Though I can see that some things were certainly not clear at the presentation, but saying it is "too late" is just a troll comment.
