    Iwata during Q&A briefing says that each game console has its own unique qualities and developers must go through a trial and error phase before they fully take advantage of the system and that the time does not come until a final version of the hardware and development tools for the version have been made available.

    About weaker CPU claims:

    CPU seems to be backed up by lots of fast RAM cache, also we will probably see the next leap in visuals on the Wii U soon.

    When all is said and done, it is still up to the devs to work their way around the hardware. They will need to invest resources and time to learn it, but unfortunately it is easier (and cheaper) to just say "we're not interested, it's too weak".

    It's a good thing they have made it clear in this regard. I expect the games to be great in the future. wii was never that powerful yet sold at a surprising rate.
