This fall, Nintendo is expected to be the first company to introduce a next-generation console. The Wii U will have HD graphics support and a new tablet-style controller. These new features would typically excite many developers, but already many developers are all ready turned off.
Weaker Graphics than the Xbox 360 and PS3
Many believe its the graphic system of the Wii U. Developers told GamesIndustry International that the Wii U is "just not as powerful" as the PS3 or Xbox 360. Mind you these consoles have been around for ages now. Another developer said that "there aren't as many shaders, it's not as capable."
This will come as a shock to many consumers that are expecting a new console that is designed at least five years beyond the Xbox 360 and PS3 to be more powerful, the Wii U's specs are technically less than these consoles. The designing of a console though, often involves more than just giving it more graphic power, as that comes with a price. For example, the latest Nvidia GPU in conjunction with a powerful CPU may yield a cost that is around $1000 or more.
