So now we have all seen the Wii Us weak specs and its not even a last gen system that even struglles with multi plats and is over priced with another gimmick controller, how long do you all think it will be until Nintendo go third party?

Thank God, we unsticked the hype thread. No offense, Adobe, This would've happened anyway.

Level 4... Such a shame, as we lose a genuinely well thought out and interesti... Wait, this threads a load of bollocks.

If it isn't even current gen how does it run current gen games? That's a flawed statement if I've ever heard one. The TC clearly doesn't understand hardware. He/She doesn't understand that clock speeds don't mean much. He/She also doesn't understand that 2GB RAM is bigger than 512MB, or that 32MB eDRAM is better than 10MB, or that the Wii U has a separate Audio processor that alleviates work from the CPU and that some 360 game's audio takes up a whole core.

You need to be level 10 to post treads therefore: You're point is invalid.

lol you think just because the clock speeds are a bit slower that it means a bad system get real its got more ram . and that alone makes it a next gen platform , the more ram the more your able to do with it .

and its got tri core processor much like the xbox360 .

a ggpu which is new , and it will help once developers start using it! stop judging based on sloppy port jobs . done rushed for launch because if i remember right xbox360 really didnt look to much different at launch then a late xbox game . -in fact i got 2 for you --- nfs most wanted burnout revenge.

these were rushed ports and look how they looked. they really didnt look to much better and the best looking launch game was pd0 in fact i say too good that- the gameplay suffered.,

so in the end we are going to have to wait to see what the future brings but the fact its able to push graphics like 360 atm , is enough for me ,

Also the two obvious horrible ports were Tony Hawk American Wasteland and Gun they looked like the Xbox version.

Also on the PS3 Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire it looked like a launch PS2 game and it was a launch PS3 title.

I do agree that the specs fail to disappoint, you are right about that.

Apparently, Wii:U is worse than 360 in some areas and the Wii:U will be "Dwarfed" by the next xbox and playstation.
Also people are saying that its 3 Wii's duct-taped together or 6 Gamecubes duct-taped together.

Then again the Wii U is probably also a trendstetter, meaning that Nextbox and PS4 will likely use a similar hardware setup (MCM - multi-chip module with integrated GPU + CPU, focus on GPGPU, low-clocked but multi-core CPU, touch-screen controller, ect.).

So it may be three Wiis duct-tapped together with a "gimmick" controller but it's still a messenger of the future and role model to "borrow" ideas and concepts from for the other console makers...

But the level 10 rule succeeds ;)
