Wii U is 2 years late, say analysts

Written by David Stellmack


Will not have a big impact going forward
Wedbush analysts included the famed Michal Pachter claim that the Wii U is 2 years late, given the fact that both other HD consoles have movement peripherals. In addition, the Wedbush analysts agreed with Fudzilla analysis, suggesting that the Wii U is “…unlikely to provide greater power than the current generation of HD consoles”. This was certainly strengthened by the admission of Reggie Fils-Aime that the demo footage used was from the 360 and PS3 versions of the games. Nonetheless, some developers claim that the Wii U is 50% more powerful than the 360 or PS3, which we find hard to reconcile.

While the unique touch-pad display controller is a novel concept, it will cost money. Nintendo has yet to provide specific pricing, and as we have suggested this is because they still don’t know what it is exactly going to cost, as the parts needed to construct the unit have not been fully decided, according to sources.

Still, no matter, the Wii U will be the most expensive Nintendo home console ever released when it arrives in the spring or early summer, depending on when Nintendo can get it out the door. Even with significant third-party popular software support, we have a hard time believing that the console will have a big impact going forward.
