is this turns out be true IF well it would be pretty sweet
Big mistake. What they basically just said is the WiiU will "keep up" with the 360 and PS3, and thus be surpassed by their successors in the coming years.
and that's surprising because...?
Hey! We don't have a Wii U section for nothing
As I recall, the word I used was "mistake" not "surprise."
Where do they say that it will "keep up"?
This isn't confirmed information anyway, its just yet another nameless source.
>Nintendo chose an economical GPU and CPU that could keep up with the performance of today’s current consoles, but keep hardware costs down to maximize profits. Nintendo got a bargain price on the custom GPU and CPU that the Wii U uses. There is a bigger focus on downloadable content, applications, video content, digital distribution, and services to create a stream of revenue. Investors will be ecstatic with the news.
To be honest, even if this rumour was reliable, I doubt they have any real technical insight into the performance of the console. They just know the parts are cheap.
we already know that not true
Nintendo and their crazy profit margins. I wouldn't be too surprised if this is real.
The source isn't the most reputable, though. Some small Montreal-based blog. Wouldn't be surprised if they made this up for hits.
Actually the more I look at this the more sense it makes. The old word was Nintendo was using a 4000 series GPU. That could be a real bargain for them, even if they souped it up a bit.
Just hoping the overall quality of the components don't suffer at the hands of cost-cutting. I'd hate to see a low quality screen on the controller
Rekindle your love for monochrome, Midna.
Considering you can get an ipad itself for 399 this is quite cheap. i cant see it going lower any time soon and ppl should see it too
Hey, I love eInk.
But only when I'm reading books
Do you always have to be so serious when I'm making a lovely joke?
I R Offense now. WiiU Black and White WILL see the light of day! With a refresh rate of 1 FPS!
Still $50 more than the PS3 and $100 more than the Xbox 360.
Just felt like pointing that out so people can yell at me for being a hater.
well if true 50 more for a nextgen device seem great
Depends on your definition of "next gen".
But with the WiiU, you get a free monitor, that has to be worth a few bucks
GUILD Y U SUCH A HATER
