Report: Wii U "less powerful" than PS3, Xbox 360

Speaking to Gamesindustry.biz, devs queued up to say that Wii U just wasn't up to the graphical standard of Xbox 360 and PS3.

"No, it's not up to the same level," one said. "The graphics are just not as powerful."

"That's true," said another. "It doesn't produce graphics as well as PS3 or 360. There aren't as many shaders, it's not as capable. Sure, some things are better, mostly as a result of it being a more modern design. But overall the Wii U just can't quite keep up."

One developer highlighted Wii U's support of a single tablet controller as another flaw. While reports late last year claimed Nintendo was working on supporting multiple tablet controllers, it appears developers are still working on the understanding that only one player will be able to use Wii U's input device.

"The whole thing about the tablet controller is that you only get one of them, and you can only use one and it's not completely independent," the source said. "The base console has to be on, and you have to be in range.

"Other controllers are just Wiimotes, or other Wii controllers. They may change the form factor or looks a bit, but it's the same controller."

Bullshit. There's no way it'll be weaker than 7-year old consoles. E3 just needs to come soon so that this stupidity ends. Nintendo also did a poor job of showcasing the system last year at E3, they're equally to blame.

RUMOR - Wii U cost of manufacturing detailed, system to see $300 price tag
Apr 08, 2012 by RawmeatCowboy
The following information comes from a source supposedly closely involved with manufacturing and distributing Nintendo products...

- total cost of materials to manufacture the Wii U console (includes cost of controller) is estimated to be around $180
- controller’s total bill of materials and components costs no more than $50
- Wii U will be no less than $300 when it launches

“Cutting production costs to maximize profits is Nintendo’s main concern with the Wii U. They are cutting costs in the Wii U’s hardware to build back confidence in investors. Nintendo wants investors to view Wii U as a less risky proposition.”

- NFC capabilities for each new Wii U controller costs no more than $5 to implement
- price of NFC implementation in mobile devices is expected to fall below $1 in the near future

“NFC capabilities are a drop in the bucket for Nintendo. As NFC becomes more mainstream in mobile devices, the price for NFC implementation will rapidly decline. Nintendo is jumping on NFC because of a projected cost decline in the technology.

The cameras in the Wii U controller are an estimated manufacturing cost of $6. They are slightly better quality than the 3DS and DSi cameras. The touch screen has a manufacturing cost estimated at $14.”

- Microsoft’s Kinect cost $56 after tearing it apart
- Wii U controller’s cost of materials would be slightly less than what Kinect cost

“Nintendo chose an economical GPU and CPU that could keep up with the performance of today’s current consoles, but keep hardware costs down to maximize profits. Nintendo got a bargain price on the custom GPU and CPU that the Wii U uses. There is a bigger focus on downloadable content, applications, video content, digital distribution, and services to create a stream of revenue. Investors will be ecstatic with the news.”

Microsoft support Microsoft's DirectX architecture and Unreal engine works best with DX. So should we expect Halo 4 to be remade with UE3? How about Fable?

Is the the speculation on the WiiU's power all that surprising? The Wii's visuals are on par with those of last gen's consoles and the WiiU will continue the trend of staying a generation behind in terms of power. Only this time, with the waggle's novelty well and truly worn off and many Wii buyers (hopefully) learning from experience, Ninty is gonna have a hard time attracting the same numbers that the Wii did. Who needs another tablet in their hands when everyone and their mee-maw already has one.

^^ Nintendo Gamecube was equally powerful compared to PS2 and Xbox

People believing this sh*t that Wii U will be less powerful is lol

Even if Nintendo makes Wii U slightly more powerful than Xbox 360 and PS3 it will sell wonders coz of awesome 1st party titles and one year lead

The gamecube was a marvel of engineering , Cheap,small,powerful(better looking games than PS2) and very easy to develop.Ninty know their stuff about consoles.I dont think they will entirely bank on the Tablet gimmick , but looking at their current status they might just go for a system slightly superior to PS360.

Infact I dont think MS,Sony are gonna release a super powered next gen system anyway(I mean like the kind of jump from PS2-PS3)).The Ps3 alone sunk all the profit made by the PS2.

Creators of the Aliens: Colonial Marines game Gearbox claims that the Wii U version will have the best looking version of the game and from the things he's described, it sounds to be a better experience than the other versions as well.
