Wii U: ‘CPU less powerful than PS3/360’, says Tecmo

Weaker than 7 year old consoles?

Posted By | On 21st, Sep. 2012

Uh oh, it was a known fact that the Wii U isn’t a massive leap over the PS3 and 360, but according to a new revelation by Tecmo, it seems that its CPU is actually weaker than the one found in the HD twins.

Akihiro Suzuki, who is working on Dynasty Warriors, mentioned that this weaker CPU is causing challenges when developing the game. But he also revealed that the Wii U is capable of great graphics and they are working hard to squeeze every bit of juice out of it.

“One of the weaknesses of the Wii U compared to PS3 and Xbox 360 is the CPU power is a little bit less. So for games in the Warriors series, including Dynasty Warriors and Warriors Orochi, when you have a lot of enemies coming at you at once, the performance tends to be affected because of the CPU. Dealing with that is a challenge,” he told Eurogamer.

“Developing on new hardware in itself was a challenge, and also making that launch date was a challenge. But from a visual standpoint, based on the performance of the Wii U, we knew the game had the capability of having much better graphics than games on PS3 and Xbox 360.

“Make no mistake, from a visual standpoint, it is able to produce better graphics. So our challenge was to make a higher quality graphics. We were able to meet that.”
