Nintendo takes the Wii with its next gen gear

Written by Nick Farrell



Developers moan


Developers working on the next generation Wii, which has been dubbed the U, are not impressed with Nintendo's next home console.

According to GamesIndustry, which  spoke to a handful of developers working on titles for the new console the U can't cut the mustard in comparison to other consoles. The graphics are just not as powerful as the Xbox or the PS3. There aren't as many shaders and while the more modern design is good the Wii U just can't quite keep up with the competition.

The U might  be OK if it was released to the current competition, but it is unlikely to be able to do anything useful against the new generation Xbox and PS4 which will be out next year.
