1UP- A lot about the Wii U remains unknown. We do know it's coming later this year and many more details are going to be shared at E3 in June. In the meantime, a new report has emerged suggesting the system is less powerful than many expect.
Multiple sources have indicated to GamesIndustry.biz that the Wii U is less powerful than both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Nintendo didn't exactly go cutting-edge with the technology it used in the Wii, but we're now talking about a system being underpowered as compared with systems that will have been out for seven and six years, respectively, at the time of the Wii U's launch.
That doesn't inspire confidence that Wii U will be anything more than a stopgap for when the "real" next-gen consoles come along a year or two later. But does this report actually make sense, and if it's true, does it even matter?
