Nintendo Wii U More Powerful than Xbox 360 and PS3

Nintendo’s new Wii U console looks set to challenge it Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 rivals like never before, as new reports suggest that the Wii U will be considerably more powerful than both. The news follows ongoing criticism that the Wii U would be unable to stand shoulder to shoulder with the industry-leaders in terms of raw power under the hood.

The Wii U was facing something of an uphill battle ahead of its expected Q4 release following a series of allegations and developer reports suggesting that the new console would debut with specs and power several steps behind the already antiquated Sony PS3 and Xbox 360.

However, developers behind the massively popular “Scribblenauts” title have laid all such accusations to rest, stating in no uncertain terms that the Will U will be more powerful then both of its rivals.


He added: “It’s kind of frustrating to see the rumours and speculation of people going back and forth saying it’s weaker or more powerful. It’s definitely more powerful,” said 5th Cell CEO Jeremiah Slaczka.

Nintendo has so far done very little to successfully stir up excitement and optimism about the Wii U, following a string of event and expo appearances which seemed to leave more questions than answers. As always, leave the details to the rumor-mill to come up with and you’re guaranteed to find thousands looking to discredit the name and prowess of a product long before any details have been officially released.

Tablet-Style Controller

However, we now know that the Wii U is to launch later this year and is to feature a brand new tablet PC-style controller, which according to those gaining early access to the device allows gameplay to be taken to levels never before possible.

While the official release date for the Wii U remains a closely guarded secret, Nintendo has confirmed that the console will be on the shelves long before the Christmas shopping stampede later this year.
