Exclamation Wii U not as poweful as PS3 or X360?

Quote:
Developers who have spoken under the condition of anonymity have told Games Industry International that the Wii U is actually less powerful than the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. This will come as shocking news to many as developers have previously said the console was slightly more powerful than both current gen consoles.
“No, it’s not up to the same level as the PS3 or the 360.,”
said one developer who’s been working with the Wii U. What
does that mean? “The graphics are just not as powerful,”


“Yeah, that’s true. It doesn’t produce graphics as well as the
PS3 or the 360. There aren’t as many shaders, it’s not as
capable. Sure, some things are better, mostly as a result of it
being a more modern design. But overall the Wii U just can’t
quite keep up.” Said another source.


Of course, this is just a rumour and nothing is concrete. But what do you guys think? Will this be a deal-breaker for some of you?

Graphics have never been a problem for me. Like, at all. Ever.....
I couldn't care less if the 'shading' isnt as good as the other systems.

We'll its just a rumor at this point. I don't think Nintendo will drop the ball and put inferior hardware in their new console. I would be very disappointed if the hardware in Wii U isn't better then the PS3.

It's most likely a false rumor.

Odd that they claim all of that when other big-name developers have already stated the exact opposite on more than one occasion. It's BS.

Even the old E3 dev kits were more capable. It sounds like a developer who doesn't understand how to do his own job if you ask me.

Load of bull, I'm calling it. Especially with the load of Triple-A developers downright praising it.

And even then I could give two shits about graphics

It better be false, bringing out a new console that isn't as powerful as something released 6/7 years ago would be dumb as hell. I know graphics don't effect gameplay, but when I play Wii games on my TV it actually hurts my eyes after a while. They're so blurry on the new TVs.
