    mh... If this is true (and this would be typical for Nintendo in the last Years, to not boost Specs, but use some kind Innovation) its technically not really good news, but oh well, its around the same boost as from Gamecube to Wii(50%), which was not bad.

    I suppose Sony and Microsoft will include again 7 to 10 times better Hardware, than last Generation.

    Graphics aren't Everything... i think its a good play by nintendo, and well... its not like graphics will get much better on the next generation... they wont have the boost that they did on this generation... so i think its just well played by nintendo...

    also, didnt Wii U Use a CPU that is mostly used on servers? that should give it a HUGE processing power boost

    I think that consoles will become more powerful in later years just so the complexity (Such as the amount of things on screen and how they move) will become better. We're near the point of graphics becoming as good as they can get.

    Maybe, but (as stated by many people) graphics are not everything...

    It still bothers me with that remote... I mean, sure it will rock, and the Sony and Microsoft go and make a cheap version of it, like always...

    But is it pratical? A console with unseen graphics beyond our imagination isn't good if you can't play it right because of the controllers... That is what links you to the console and games... It it's no good, the console is no good either.

    Agreed, If I'm really in a game, I don't bother with the graphics...

    so why do you post?

    BTT: yea, as many people said Graphic is not everything, still to be every Generation one Gen behind, is not really healthy for Nintendo, but I do'#t have shares, so don't care about it. Also, maybe I will buy, like for this generation, an xbox.

    I just hope this time they will get finally a lot of good thrid party games... they really deserve it.

    The tech demos didn't peg it as like next gen powerful, and they're still not selling me on content. People are just dying over it already because it's Nintendo and they can only think in terms of "OMG FIRST PARTIES".

    I still don't believe it'll be powerful enough for the next gen.

    I don't think it will matter looking at the Gamecube and how Nintendo did that generation.

    I don't care about sales. The Gamecube still had a good library (although some of the first parties like Super Mario and Star Fox were kinda mediocre). I'd rather have a system that sold poorly and had a great library than one that sold well and a poor library.

    I was going to post that.
    Anyway, power is not everything. Wii was too underpowered.. but that wont be the case with WiiU.

    IMO the Gamecube had a really crappy library. I consider it to be Nintendo's worst system that wasn't a failure.

    really?
    I think the third party library was dozen times better than on the Wii, maybe Nintendo games were more rare and sunshine was worse than Galaxy, but all in all a very childish looking but powerful and fun Console.

    It did have some amazing games such as Sunshine, Twin Snakes, Double Dash, and Melee, I just consider the overall library to be mostly crap.

    'Cause I didn't. It is you that thinks the worst of Nintendo.

    Yes I seen some stuff bad about Nintendo, but you always make it seem they fail before they start.

    It no wow they have a chance. It %50? Instant Epic fail!

    Is what I get from you.
