Wii U less powerful than PS3, Xbox 360

Wii U

Developers claim

Anonymous developers who spoke to GamesIndustry International have revealed that Nintendo’s Wii U is not as powerful as Microsoft’s Xbox 360 or PS3.

Apparently, Wii U is capable of churning out HD, but is still not enough to stand up to the current crop of consoles. One dev said that there aren’t as many shaders and although “some things are better” due to a more modern design, “Wii U just can’t quite keep up”.

While we’ve never expected to see Nintendo come up with the fastest console of them all, it is perhaps a bit discouraging that the new console can’t beat its five years older competitors. On the other hand, Nintendo was always about the fun factor, and that’s something where it never failed to deliver.

It is said that the tablet controller is what held the company back as it wanted to focus on innovation rather than raw power. It is believed that this drove the price higher, prompting Nintendo to cut costs on graphics, memory and CPU.
