Nintendo’s next-generation venture into the world of high-definition may not compete with the current generation, graphically.
According to multiple developers, speaking on condition of anonymity to GamesIndustry.biz, the Wii U is not as powerful as PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.
“The graphics are just not as powerful,” said one developer.
“It doesn’t produce graphics as well as the PS3 or the 360,” said another developer. “There aren’t as many shaders, it’s not as capable. Sure, some things are better, mostly as a result of it being a more modern design. But overall the Wii U just can’t quite keep up.”
Nintendo has been silent on Wii U since its E3 reveal last year. Though, that should change at E3 this June, where Nintendo has promised it will share new details.
