In what will surely be disturbing news to the diehard Nintendo faithful, Gameindustry spoke with several third party developers under the veil of secrecy who revealed that the system simply isn’t up to par with the PS3 or Xbox 360 in terms of sheer graphical power.
That’s interesting to hear because Gearbox had mentioned earlier that the Wii U was able to do things none of the current systems could do. Looking back at that comment now, it’s apparent he never mentioned graphics in particular.
So what do you all think? If it is indeed true that the Wii U isn’t able to match the graphical prowess of the 360 or PS3 at this point in time, just imagine how underpowered it will be once the next-generation Xbox and PlayStation hit. The disparity between the Wii and the PS3/360 was already quite large, so one would assume it would be around the same or worse next time around.
This year’s E3 should be very telling. Anyone care to share their thoughts?
