Wii U twice as powerful as the Xbox 360; doesn’t match expectations of some studios
According to sources close to Develop, Wii U will be twice as powerful as Xbox 360, which is a 6 year old console. Now, we don’t have accurate specifications of what is inside the system, but it is expected to pack in a R700 GPU, and about 512MB RAM.
We urge you to take this rumour with a pinch of salt, as when a new hardware launches there is bound to be a lot of misinformation, but Develop is a credible in most situations.
It is also mentioned that some developers are displeased with the system due to their expectations being lowered and they’ve had to “de-scale their plans”.
IGN reports that, Xbox360’s successor will be six times as powerful as the Xbox 360, so the Wii U may end up being underpowered when compared to Sony and MS’ systems.
