Next-gen console specs: PS4 vs. Xbox One vs. Wii U

chart-list

Now that the Xbox One has been officially revealed, let’s have a look at the specs between all three systems. We know what the Wii U and the Xbox One look like, but Sony has chosen not to reveal their console except in elusive clips. Still, the spec list fore each console is now available. Both the Xbox and the PlayStation seem to stack up similarly in regards to specs, though the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has a massive eight-core processor.

All three consoles have AMD powered GPUs, while the Xbox One and Playstation 4 have an AMD powered CPU. The Wii U is powered by IBM’s PowerPC architecture, leaving nVidia solely to mobile and PC graphics. As far as features go, the Xbox One followed Nintendo’s direction by including live TV in their console, including a guide view that Nintendo made popular with TVii. Currently it looks like Microsoft is stepping on Nintendo’s toes quite a bit with the Wii U’s TVii system.

What do you think of these announcements and specs?

    All three consoles have AMD powered CPUs = wrong wii u have IBM :)

    • Manuel Bernal

      GPU!!!!!

      • Cerus98

        The article stated all three have AMD powered CPUs and GPUs. His correction is correct.

      • http://www.facebook.com/aleksander.esentals Aleksander Esentals

        ah sorry i saw my misstake now :)

    • Shaise Mughal

      Whats the difference?

  • Zizo47

    Well, that was a waste of an hour…

    • incoherent1

      Seconded!

      I’m not buying either a PS4 of XBO, but the PS4 announcement was much more worth my time to watch (and that’s more of an insult to the XBO announcement than it was a complement to the PS4’s…).

      • Shaise Mughal

        Do you have a Wii U

        • incoherent1

          Yessir! I do have a Wii U. I’d be open to buying another system too, but haven’t seen anything I can’t live without

      • Zizo47

        The biggest problem with the Xbox reveal is that they pushed the “entertainment” stuff (e.g. TV, Bing, NFL) as main features and basically said “Oh, and here’s some game stuff”.

        With the PS4 announcement the games were the MAIN THING. Stuff like Netflix, Hulu and ESPN is not a new or main feature, it’s just there for convenience.

        I think I’ll stick with my Wii U and get the PS4 when it’s out. Bungie was my only incentive for ever owning an Xbox in the first place…

  • Laud

    Seriously though, they pushed their reveal a month back for this?

    I’m more disappointed with the Xbox reveal than with the PS4 reveal.

    I’m also wondering, do these people even know what gameplay is? They only showed one clip of gameplay and that was COD… AND IT WASN’T EVEN REALLY A CLIP IT WAS INGAME FOOTAGE OF ACTIONS TAKING PLACE?

    I don’t know anymore.

    Edit: Some people have begun doubting Nintendo because of the Xbox reveal.

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com/407912/microsoft-confirms-pre-owned-fee-for-xbox-one/

    Xbox one is now irrelevant.

    • incoherent1

      Yeah, why push it back if you’re not showing any gameplay clips? It’ll be interesting to see how much is ready to play at E3 — either they have a lot of gameplay ready and decided to hold it for E3 or they’re not ready and their developers are working around the clock to get it ready.

    • LopsidedPasta

      Nintendo needs to make this holiday season the biggest Nintenfest EVER. I mean it. 2 consoles, each a solid notch above the Wii U in terms of hardware, are coming out around November. Zelda Windwaker U will be good, but it won’t be enough. If Nintendo doesn’t do something HUGE SOON, they could be in DEEP trouble.

      • Laud

        I’m not too worried about it, I’m sure Nintendo’s got a ton of things up their sleeves.

        Metroid is perfect to show off the hardware capabilities and I’m sure they’ll do show that in E3.

        • LopsidedPasta

          Xbox one is more of an entertainment box (A TERRIBLE decision on their part). The PS4 is very gamer oriented. Those two consoles together will almost certainly give you the best of both worlds, with the Wii U somewhere in between. Most people won’t get each, but the fact remains. It doesn’t look right now as if the Wii U can stand up to either of the competitors. I LOVE my Wii U, it will remain my favorite console this gen, but thats the way I see this 8th generation as going.

          • Laud

            You’re underestimating Nintendo, the competition knows it’s not wise to do this.

          • LopsidedPasta

            Not wise to do what? Steal a copyrighted song? ok

          • Laud
          • tronic307

            Yeah, but Nintendo has alienated the casuals with a needlessly complex system, and even the Nintendo nuts are waiting for the real games.
            I preordered before Dell knew it existed; they thought I wanted a Wii until they checked their computer. They still don’t have a separate Wii U section, so the even the retailers are like “huh?”.

          • Shaise Mughal

            I think Microsoft has lost the point, its Video GAMING, which is why Nintendo is carrying on their gaming legacy just like they did in 1985

      • tronic307

        Nintendo doesn’t have to worry about the competition, as it’s really a different market. Nintendo’s inner struggles are more urgent.

      • Shaise Mughal

        Well remember, its not all about specs, I think Nintendo might just be able to compete with this generation. The things that will make it unique is the gamepad & its exclusive games which will be revolutionary

        • great deku tree

          Another great step Nintendo has made is the fact you can play your wii u games in the car…although I’m concerned at how easily your disks might get scratched if it’s a pretty rough road. still it is unique as you said and hopefully I’ll be able to buy one soon.

      • Clel

        Wind Waker, Pikmin 3, New Super Luigi U, Mario Kart U, Wonderful 101, maybe Yarn Yoshi, and maybe 3D Mario.

        That seems pretty big.

        • LopsidedPasta

          WW= remake
          Pikmin 3= I’ll give you that
          NSLU= basically another remake
          MKU= None of us have any idea of what to expect
          Yarn Yoshi= I still don’t know what I was seeing at the Nintendo direct.
          3d Mario= I doubt it
          Do you think that these games can halt the PS4? Doubtful

          • Clel

            WW= reamake, sure, I’ll give you that
            Pikmin 3= You better
            NSLU= Not a remake, it’s an expansion–and also, keep in mind that with a retail copy that costs only 30$, it looks like a whole new game.
            MKU= It’s coming out in fall, and yes, we do know what to expect; Nintendo is putting a CRAP-TON of effort into it to make it really, really awesome and a system seller like Mario Kart Wii was.
            Yarn Yoshi= You were seeing the most amazing dinosaur there ever was
            3D Mario= Apparently there are some strong rumors out there that it will come in October, but we can’t know for sure. Nintendo has a habit of announcing games’ release dates suprisingly close to the release date.

            You didn’t mention Wonderful 101.

          • LopsidedPasta

            I love basically every MK, but I HATED the Wii version. It felt too spread out. Too many characters, too many OBSCURE characters, crappy courses, bad motion controls, and repetitive music. But that’s my opinion. Yarn Yoshi looked like a reskin of KEY. Until I’m proven wrong, that game doesn’t interest me at all. I HIGHLY doubt there will be a 3d Mario in 4-5 months. That’s BS. If there IS, then it will be so rushed it won’t even be funny.

          • Laud

            What? Nintendo promised a playable version of 3D Mario and Mario Kart at E3.

            Just because you aren’t interested in it doesn’t make it a bad game, I thought it was fun.

          • LopsidedPasta

            So because there is a playable demo at e3… the full game will be bug free and release this year. You might want to rethink that.

          • Laud

            Do you think they started working on it yesterday or something?

            I’m pretty sure the game has been in the works since before the console even released.

            Ghost Recon Online

          • Laud

            If I can only get 5 I’d choose:

            Zelda 2014

            Bayonetta 2

            Retro’s new project

            Miyamotos new IP

            and X

            If I could choose 10 it would be the previous 5 and:

            Starfox

            Metroid

            3D Mario

            SMT X FE

            And Square Enix new game.

          • The Clockwork Being

            Your list seems close to mine:

            Zelda 2014

            X

            SMT X FE

            SSB4

            If a new Kid Icarus is made for the Wii U

            Arent you excited for Smash Bros

          • Laud

            Yeah I am excited for Smash Bros but I didn’t count it in because it’s the game everyone in the world would choose lol.

          • The Clockwork Being

            Yeah you’re right everyone chooses Smash but the lifetime for the U is long and I want all these games but some will come too late in the U’s lifetime lol but I have patience

            To replace Brawl then i’ll go for Red Steel 3. 1 and 2 used the Wii remote well and 2 used Wii motion plus. With the support Ubisoft is giving I wouldnt be surprised if they did make Red Steel 3

          • LopsidedPasta

            So has SSB4. I think I’ve made my point

          • david jarman

            We don’t know when they went into production. Nobody does. Plus, we don’t know the size of the team that is developing it.

          • Clel

            Look, Nintendo has been working on Wii U games for the past few years.
            And if you didn’t like MK Wii, that doesn’t mean other people didn’t; a LOT of other people did, and a LOT of people bought a Wii just for that game.

            What the heck is KEY? Oh and, I find it totally understandable that people wouldn’t be interested by Yarn Yoshi at this point, because there’s like NO information about it. I’m only excited about it because I’m a Yoshi fan (obviously).
            You’re calling a 3D Mario BS, but that seems like a pretty strong statement, especially considering the ‘hard’ rumors about it. Also, keep in mind that Nintendo has been working on Wii U games for years now, so they’ve had plenty of time to work on a 3D Mario. But since nothing is solid, I don’t think anyone should count on it, and I don’t think anyone should outright call it bullshit.

            Aaaaand you ddin’t mention Wonderful 101.

            However, all this is up in the air and we truly don’t know about this stuff. I’m just hoping for the best for Nintendo, and trying to be optimistic without being too unrealistic.

            Cheers!

            How about this most of these can be done and if they do these games all of them the right way with innovation than they are most likely saved.

            Are you a comedian? Do you actually think that all of these games will be released in 6 months? Are you shooting heroin? That’s like me listing 50 games, including two halos and a forza, as to why the Xbox 1 will have a great first year. It’s asinine

          • The Clockwork Being

            NO i didnt say in 6 months just in its life time. Selecting 3-4 of these games for the Holiday seasons would be good

      • The Clockwork Being

        You’re right they should be pulling these soon, bring these Nintendo and everything will be alright:

    • jay

      Now you know how us Casuals feel. I remember the H@rdc0r3 nerds going nuts when ms revealed that the 360 could stream ESPN *facepalm*

    • YoG99

      I was asking the same question while I watched: they talked about Gameplay … pffff … they took the time they had to talk about how the graphics are better than before. Still the same old receipe: “look … we got GRAPHICS !!!!”

    • Adam Fox

      I think part of the reason they did it this way was because E3 is just a couple weeks ago…where-as Sony showed alot of game play b/c E3 was a few months way…..Microsoft even admitted that they will be showing more game-play footage at E3…..PLUS….we got to see software features of the console which I thought was pretty awesome…..the name makes sense…Xbox One….One box for movies, tv, music, games…..now…just curious about price….

      • Laud

        If that’s the case I already have a Xbox One, it’s called a PC.

        I got the hulus, the netflix, the skypes, the youtubes, and I can already ALT TAB out of games or even have dual monitors to multi task as much as I want.

        What I want is a GAMING CONSOLE, not another media center.

        • Adam Fox

          but you don’t have what they will have as 15 exclusives, motion control like Kinect 2.0 offers……

          • Laud

            You actually want the Kinect?

            Hey they’ll have exclusives, that’s great but so does Nintendo.

            Nintendo and PC for me, like last gen and the gen before that.

        • Quicksilver88

          Not to mention I can do Hulu, Skype, Facebook and netflixe on Wii-U, ps3, x360, ipad, android, Vita, PC, Mac and about everything else under the sky….why is this a selling feature for Xbox None?

        • jay

          lol i have those on my Wii. THE original WII!!!

    • SoulSilverZero

      Oh well, at least the name wasn’t 720.

    Wow, the xbox is looking in good shape!
    WII U!, IT’S TIME…
    *eye of the tiger plays while a gamepad is punching a sandbag*
    COME ON!!
    *The xbox 720 comes in and everybody goes silent*
    GET HIIIIIIM!!!!
    *The gamepad repeatedly strikes at the xbox 720*

    • jay

      Nintendo need to bring their AAA games out BEFORE the release of the next consoles.

      • Shaise Mughal

        3d Mario is releasing by October, Pikmin August, w101 august/September, and Mario kart u, wind waker, smash bros 4 should be later this year, next consoles will be late 2013, so Nintendo will have some of their best 1st party titles released by the time the next consoles are out.

        • Shaise Mughal

          I think the biggest 1st party of Wii U ever will be the Zelda Wii U title, the one releasing in 2014

          • great deku tree

            agreed, I’m intrigued as to how they will use the game pad besides for things like aiming and map and so on…perhaps it’ll be 2 player with one person on the gamepad and another using a wii motion plus remote. like one link travels in time and finds another link and they team up?

          • mechadestroyah

            Or the gamepad can be used to control your Navi like companion

        • DragonSilths

          Smash Bros Wii U version will be next year, 3DS version this holiday season. By the time the PS4 and Xbox One release Wii U will have all its features, up and running, all its bugs/glitches fixed and a great library of games. But the PS4 and Xbox One will have bugs and such and a small library, thats why Wii U got a 1 year head start.

          • LopsidedPasta

            Not all over video games. Over the fact that it seems like you never have anything better to do than troll people over a website. Daily. I’m assuming that human interaction would replace the need to feel cool by acting like an annoying 12 year old.

            You went way too far. Thats hateful man.

            You crossed the line, God loves everyone. Thats why he gave us the choice to whether or not be like this guy.

          • Sonic the Hedgehog

            I know… God created everyone… that’s why. I was kidding about that. I aint no aetheist…

          • Sonic the Hedgehog

            Well you see, SEGA designed me to be the ‘cooler’ character. Ever since my family collapsed, it was Nintendo giving me the best support Sony and Microsoft never did.

            haha ! LET’S DO THIS !

          • Nintendo4life

            Nah the price tag is the true factor and most people will buy Wii U and that is fact and sorry guy but not all Wii U fans are babies and trust me guy You have no idea what a gamer is do you?

            Price tag did not affect the PS3 as much in the long run. Even if these two are high priced, that does not mean people will jump to Wii U, they may just keep what they have. I know I kept what I had (PC) until the 360 came out with graphics that made me a believer.

          • Nintendo4life

            True to a point but I disagree 400 to 600 dollars people will go to wii u

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            If they did not go to Wii U now, they won’t based on the price of those two. You forget, we are living in a high-class age for people on bottle water budgets. This is why Apple products sell so well. Broke people want luxury and Apple is the only affordable luxury. Because of this, people may see the other two as luxury and go for it regardless. These are great companions for your HDTVs.

            have to wait and see they said the same about wii and people flocked that and it sold 100 million units

            But honestly, Mr. Knowledge. In all fairness, I am impressed; that you have been able to harner so many haters, troll so many people, have the people keep coming back to thumbs down your comments, to waste keyboard hits with their replies to your comments.
            Hats off to you. Never seen a more effective troll.

            You do know Nintendo is the only company that does not pay ign for promotion right?

            How stupid are you to think they would pay American citizens to troll on blogs?

            Did you not see the leaked document about MS paying ign to say their system will have the game of the year? Even though said game is unreleased?

          • Jon

            we are paid agents…… wow, I never knew I got paid for being a fan. Now what I find interesting is you claim we are paid agents on a Nintendo fan sight…… very interesting, I would think a Nintendo fan site would bring fans….and less of the other, what would be more likely that if you were a paid agent trying to steer people away from Nintendo but… you seem to unprofessional and too ,much of an asshole to be even that.

You are just sad and a hypocrite who doesn’t even deserve to be here yet you come and troll, you claim how disappointed you are in Nintendo and that they should just stop and that you don’t care about Nintendo yet you always keep coming back to troll and make fun of others.

            It is these things that make me question the things you claim because everything you do, everything you post is not very consistent except for the Nintendo bashing. You seem like a lost child that just comes here to throw insults at people who enjoy something that a company brings us. So honestly, tell me why you bother to keep coming back if this bashing is not the actual reason for you being here because you seem to hate everything Nintendo.

            Find a quote from me where I called people those names? I may have said something was idiotic at best. If I ever called anyone a name, it was in response to their having called me a name. I don’t call people names while arguing over video games.

            Oh no you just didn’t talk about Link like that. The Legend of Zelda is not lame, and I’m pretty sure it’s franchise and MARIO are more popular than CoD, and this is coming from someone who does play Cod.

          • david jarman

            Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed towards influencing the attitude of the community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes.

            As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda, in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political, religious or commercial agenda. Propaganda can be used as a form of ideological or commercial warfare.

            You are in a nintendo community. I thought I’d kindly remind you that and what propaganda is.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            No need to remind me because I knew. Being on a Nintendo site does not change the meaning. That definition you provided did not make it plain as to what propaganda is – lies.

          • david jarman

            Propaganda is not just lies. It’s persuading a group to see the same way you do. If anything it’s manipulation.

    Both PS4 and Xbox One are gonna be extremely expensive. I’d rather wait to buy either systems when the price drops below $600 – 800.

    BTW, both PS4 and Xbox One won’t be backwards compatible with their current consoles– PS3 and Xbox 360.

    • http://twitter.com/Jamie_Clabon Jamie Clabon

      xbox is, but you have to pay a subscription or something for it. You know, to use games you’ve bought

        Wow! And people moan for Nintendo ad revenue, but paying for used games is daylight robbery!

    • http://twitter.com/albinopig Zach DiRienzo

      On PS4 they’re doing what they do currently, let you download them. Which for me at least is fine.

      • Quicksilver88

        Yeah but only if you purchased them digitally in the past. Many people bought retail copies and for them they are essentially screwed having to pay full or a high price to repurchase their favorites. What they are trying to do is kill off the used market. A great example of this was MG Peace walker on PSP which you get used on UMD for like $10 but was selling on PSN for Vita for $30. These companies will do what they can to maximize their profits, and I don’t blame them, but for loyal gamers don’t act like this is an ideal situation…..

      • http://twitter.com/albinopig Zach DiRienzo

        I only buy retail. I just don’t mind buying games off PSN for cheap.

    Wii U might have less in it, however the games for it would be phenomenally better :)

    Mario, Smash, ZELDA and many more :D

    • jay

      Don’t be fooled by the gaming media. The power difference won’t be much. Retro will kick ass this gen.

      • YoG99

        I think Wii U will do the same thing Wii did. An underestimated architecture that won the generation because of the innovations they brought to GAMES. What’s the others companies don’t get with that. I’m still playing original Mario Kart with friends on my aging SNES (god this console is used) because the game is so fun and competitive. I was 12 when I got it and now I’m over 30 and the only difference is that we traded sodas for beers … but the good old fun remains.

        • JB

          …and there’s the advantage Nintendo has over the other 2. The vast majority of N’s 1st and 2nd party titles are classic and have massive replay value. The fact I can pop in the original Mario and Zelda and still enjoy it as much as I did when I was young speaks volumes about Nintendo as a whole.

        • jay

          It’s no where near that situation.

          Wii was way less powerful than the competition. This gen the difference will be meh….

          • YoG99

            That’s it … if the Wii could have succeeded with a way inferior architecture, just imagine how well the Wii U will perform. The only thing missing right now, and everyone knows it, is first party title. Mario 3D, Zelda Wii U, Mario Kart and Smash Bros will sale consoles like crazy. No one in the industry can beat Nintendo on the pure fun and gameplay experience in games, period.

            that guy is an idiot the Wii U is selling, of course out to a bumpy start like every other new console on the market. After this unveil it looks like xbox is going down a even worst path, now Microsoft has to show xbox fans the difference between 360 and one, to me it seems like a downgrade to a cable box with the same interface and 2% cleaner graphics.

        A lot of repeats, overlaps, games that will never see the light of day and most of these will never even come out within the next year. By the next year, the Wii U will be no more.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kpuliyanda Korey Puliyanda

    In all honesty, all Xbox’s conference did for me is confirm to me that I will be going Ps4/Wii U this generation. Wii U will probably be the system that provides me with the best,most nastolgic and innovative gaming experiences. The ps4 will just be for the prettiness aspect of games.

    • blah

      I think the PS4 has also a really good Line Up. Killzone was always one of the few shooters I really enjoyed, Deep Down looks friggin’ awesome and even Knack interests me a bit.
      I have to admit that I never had one of the XBox consoles and always went with Nintendo/Sony so I may be a bit biased, but imo there are almost no really good exclusives on XBox…

      • Shaise Mughal

        Yeah, HALO isn’t so appealing

        • Quicksilver88

          Look I own all consoles and have owned both xbox and x360..Halo means nothing to me….I bought x360 because it had Oblivion and ME1 way before ps3 and that and Fable were the early draws. Fable has really suffered lately and ps4 will be getting next ME and Dragon Age at same time as xbox1 so for me many others xbox1 will be the last console we buy this generation if we buy it at all.

          • Frank

            Plus look at the name. Xbox One ? Niiiiiiiiccccceeeeee choice. Makes Wii U seem more excellent. PS4 makes more sense than that.

          • Quicksilver88

            Yeah…..I get it in that it is supposed to be an all in ‘one’ device but it isn’t the greatest name. I think xbox infinity might have been better but then people might have wanted to call it xfininity and that would have gotten them sued by comcast…lol

            Call of Duty are rehashes, Mario games are not.

            All CoD games are the same, but NO mario games are the same.

            Only the Super Mario Bros. series is the same, and it still outsells CoD like a boss.

            Mario is inovative and new, every time.

            Using Mario as an example of rehashes proves that you don’t know anything about Nintendo games or Mario at all.

          Yeah that’s right, but I won’t mind if they don’t fuck the gameplay itself up ;)

    • Shaise Mughal

      Xbox 1 system is MASSIVE! The Wii U fits right on my shelf! And the fact you said Nintendo games make you feel nostalgic, I’m taking you were one of those 80s kids playing an NES or SNES in the 90s ( I wish I grew in those times! ), this is because Nintendo still makes their games innovative & they live on their legacy of 1985! That’s why I like Nintendo! And the reason I have a Wii U

      • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

        Nintendo needs to get out of the past and visit the present for a change.

        • [000]

          Yeah, that explains how they were able to release a console in 2012 and sell over 3 million units.

        • http://twitter.com/Onyzora Ony

          Yeah, virtual console and Wii retro compatibility (and hoping for GameCube virtual console) are irrelevant.
          (Okay it’s a bit like “I want to say something against you”, but come on, you can’t HATE Nintendo that much. Like, did they raped you when you were young ?)
          Everyone I know that had a Nintendo console in the past had an AWESOME childhood, and personnaly, I’m growing with Nintendo, and they continue to amaze me, and that’s mainly because they haven’t really changed their formula since the beggining. Changing is great, unless you change just for changing, and then the result is crap.

          So, yeah, keep saying “Nintendo is dooooomed, I must preach the Holy Words: everyone who says that Wii U is great are lyyyyyyiing, Nintendo have only incompeteeennt guuuuys”, but I would like to see what will YOU do to redressing Nintendo.
          Make more game, faster, better ? New advertising ?
          Yeah and how ? Do you KNOW how to run a company, especially video game?
          I’m studying Video Game Developpment since two years, and I don’t even know how to build a project as big as a videogame yet.
          But if you are an expert in that, I think I have to appologie ? Yet it would be nice if you don’t force others to think that Wii U and Nintendo are crap. Everybody is capable of personal thought, no?

            I own a Wii U and a shit laptop with no monitor. I’m not a PC nut, I just know my knowledge, and that’s what’s up… PS4 is 2011-12 tech. Very futuristic.

            Also, did you not even watch or read about the Xbox One event? XBone looks like it will be using some of it’s recources for background programs. PS4 is a different story, but you weren’t specific. Again, change that hideous screen name.

    • devmiles

      i can rely to this… good ol’ nintendo will give us some magic fans have been waiting for.. like the next zelda (not the HD remake which is very cheap anyways) N games will still look pretty on their own franchices, i think the big boy game companies will leave the wii-u gradually alone… no COD ghost etc on wii-u.. Black ops 2 runs very shit on wii-u, very little players etc.. better have a PS3/4 for these kind of games

      • david jarman

        COD ghost is on the wii u. My blackops 2 on wii u is much better then my Xbox version(I double dip for knowledge and resource). It runs a lot better online. The wii u version has less lag issues and co-op is awesome. The frame rate is hardly, if at all noticeable. Ubisoft, Activision, capcom, sega, square enix, monolith soft, platinum games, precusor, slightly mad studios, shin’en, frozenbyte, and now even ea (cause Disney is going to spank them) are making games for wii u. If nintendo does an amazing with their games and sales pick up, the flood gates will open and more developers will want to invest and have a taste of that nintendo cheddar. That’s what I believe.

    • Edgars Treimanis

      I think Xbox one is the same as old xbox with kinect but the new xbox only has higher preformance (maybe?). I have Wii U and going to have ps4 because i think these two consoles is better than xbox one.

        I see the same. Many are sticking to PS4 and Wii U.

        • incoherent1

          Yep. And honestly, that’s an effective win for the Wii U. Hardcore gamers (the type of people who closely follow sites like IGN) are going to buy a PS4 regardless of anything else — that may have been in question a day ago, but the direction of the XBox is clearly not a hardcore gaming console. The question is what will everyone else buy, and after today’s announcement, that looks like a Wii U.

  • incoherent1

    This is Nintendo’s chance to blow the doors off the competition. All the cards are on the table (or will be in the next month), and if Nintendo can crank out some awesome games and polish up the OS (*especially* TVii), then it’ll be extremely well positioned coming out of E3…

    • Talesgirl015

      Nintendo has already fail, I think this is more of an issue directly based on the Wii U. doesn’t offer any compelling innovation, and it’s not a lot more powerful than the last generation of PS3 and Xbox 360. most gamers are ready move onto next gen consoles like PS4 and Xbox One..

      • Ninknowing

        Your really gonna sit here and tell me you think the xbox one is impressive in any way? This is horrible the interface is the same as xbox 360 nothing changed besides the fact that the xbox went from a cool, sleek look to a cable box, real impressive.

      • incoherent1

        I respect your opinion, but it’s impossible to say Wii U has failed when its competitors aren’t even released. Nintendo certainly hasn’t done itself and major favors the past 6 months, but they have time to recover. I don’t think we’ll know the real state of play for at least a year (once XBO and PS4 have been out 9+ months).

  • Xavier Lopez Chabelo

    Well, first of all this conference was Extremely better in comparison with the PS4 conference. Second, the system looks amazing, in my personal opinion is going to be an instant succes. Now third, Nintendo: They need more games, third party games and THIRD PARTY EXCLUSIVES as XBOX and SONY do. And last… maybe Nintendo has to apply a price drop on the Wii U. A great generation is coming!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/kpuliyanda Korey Puliyanda

        Just wait for E3, we have to see the 15 exclusives of this XBOX, the games that the PS4 has to offer and of course the Nintendo games, but not just Mario or Zelda, We need Metroid, Starfox, FZERO, a new IP and third party exclusives.

    Well, unlike Sony, they showed the box, but little else. Full specs might have been nice. The new controller was about the most exciting thing they showed.

  • armyguy

    I have to agree that Xbox and PS4 might be more powerful, but your going to have to pay at-least 600 to get it. I think I should be a patcher and predict that sales are going to be extremely slow until they both get below 500. PS4 copied the gamepad with the trying to use Vita and Xbox stole the TV function.

    • http://twitter.com/albinopig Zach DiRienzo

      Uhh… no actually they aren’t copying Wii U, Playstation has been trying to do Console and handheld connection since PSP and PS3. But they never really do anything with it so it doesn’t matter.

    • Denvy

      I think game and console sales will be slow for all three systems. I don’t think Nintendo is going to suffer alone.

    • Shaise Mughal

      But Nintendos is unique in everyway, because they created it! The gamepad revitalizes the way you play, I love how the second screen is used in games, and the fact you can play without TV

    • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

      YOU are throwing out prices that are not real. If either system is $400 – it’s good. I think that the Xbox One makes for a hell of a voluntary spy machine on the public and a rich elite’s pedophile dream..

  • Resident Dante

    I am by no means a nintendo fanboy as I currently own a xbox 360 and wii u, but that conference was terrible. Most of the people I know hate kinect and that is all Microsoft seem to talk about at present, I was far more impressed with the sony conference. Looking at that I am of the opinion that nintendo shouldnt be worried to much, and after that conference who is looking forward to the Xbox One, maybe Microsoft will turn it round at E3, who knows, but nintendo will have playable games there.

    • Shaise Mughal

      Those 1st party games will change everything! Especially Zelda u ( the one launching in 2014 )

      • Resident Dante

        Does not change the fact that Microsoft conference was terrible when compared to Sony’s and Nintendo’s. And Nintendo’s first party games will change the consoles fortunes like they did with the 3DS, it may take a while but it will happen.

        • david jarman

          Graphics don’t mean everything. The games are great and fun. Why is this such a life and death struggle for you? Most people here aren’t changing their minds and love wii u. I personally hope nintendo never goes the direction as the other two consoles. I like to have variety and would like to play games that look like games and not like the bs in reality. I don’t think we need games with realistic life like death and gore. I play games to get away from life. You need to stop being disrespectful, go on your own website and leave people alone.

          Wii Sports is the BIGGEST system mover in history.

          How old are you?

  • http://twitter.com/albinopig Zach DiRienzo

    My opinion’s in a nutshell: Wii U isn’t as powerful as Xbox one or PS4, but I don’t care because I bought it for Nintendo exclusives.
    Playstation has got the upper hand over Microsoft, both in hardware and software (yes, the tech in the PS4 is better, though not by a lot. similar to PS3 and 360)
    The Playstation conference was WAAAAAAY better than Microsoft’s, Microsoft mostly consisted of talking about compatibility with the TV, the community (which doesn’t look awe-inspiring) and the Kinect which most people don’t care about (even those that bought one)
    ALSO! Like I and so many other’s said, the “incredibly different upgraded next gen graphics” are better but not by leaps and bounds. The next generation is shaping up to be more about processing power, which is good for devs. Also, as said before PS4’s processing power is superior.

    I am buying a PS4 and will enjoy it, because I am a Play-tendo fan :)
    Microsoft and it’s boring hardware and lack of good exclusive software can F*** Off. :)
    P.S. The Kinect doesn’t read as a 3 dimensional sensor, it treats everything as though it’s flat and senses the blobby shape it’s sensing getting closer. Wii was also not 3 Dimensional sensing. PS Move on the other hand is based on 3 Dimensional sensors :)

    • Shaise Mughal

      Lol I like that! Play-tendo fan! I’m a Nintendo fan, throughout the 00s I grew up on a PS2 & Gameboy advance SP

    • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

      No, MS’s presentation was far better than Sony’s. Sony took too long to get to the point while MS showed the system from the start so there won’t be any mystery. From a gaming point of view, the PS4 looks better.

    • mechadestroyah

      Not a Microsoft fan but got to say i don’t think the kinect 2 sees flat. They mentioned it can see the photons in the environment which would mean that its an extremely super fast camera. Seeing the photons would also allow the camera to see behind object by determining where light hit off of an object.

      • http://twitter.com/albinopig Zach DiRienzo

        Even when it see’s the object it does not track the motions as if they were in a 3D environment. It picks up objects that are in it’s “sensing area” and it flattens the image. That’s why there are no Kinect games that actually read the depth of your movement, it only reads how close and far you are.

  • http://www.youtube.com/azhood321 AZHood

    Disappointed by the XboxOne conference. 35 minutes or so to actually get to the games. Microsoft is definitely catering to a different audience from Sony/Nintendo. * GB of RAM, but is it DDR3 or DDR5?

    More to be revealed at E3 no doubt, but at the moment, it seems like the PS4/Wii U are the go-to consoles this gen.

    • Shaise Mughal

      Wii U is equivalent to PS3/360. Xbox One has MUCH better processing (though not as good as PS4’s) and graphics aren’t much better (except shading)

      • Nintedward

        Wiiu is a bit better than PS360 actually , once it hits its full potential.
        You’re right in saying it’s closer to them than it is to next PSXB in specs. But remember Wiiu is about the Gamepad not just specs.

        • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

          Wii U may not even be as good as the 360/PS3 and the GPU is the ONLY thing that let’s it compete.

          • Nintedward

            Oh stfu , troll.

            Wiiu was proven long ago to be better than those consoles.
            More RAM , Edram , Shaders , CPU cache memory etc.
            It’s graphically better , and that’s a fact.

            The CPU is not bad either (compared to PS3 360) it ran NFSMW and Mass effect 3 more stable than the PS360 could. Explain that.

    The Xbox one is absolutely not for me , If I get a companion console for my Wiiu , it will definitely be the PS4. A fucking Kinnect that is essential ? get fucked.

Honestly though, even in the days of the NES Nintendo has been more about quality of gameplay vs graphics, a strategy that has pushed them through every gen but the 32/64-bit era. We shouldn’t be worried about the console’s fate til we see the sales reports next year.

    • thedeciderU

      i own an xbox 360 and enjoy it, but holy shit, the xbox one presentation was PAINFUL to sit through. i kept asking over and over, “but where are the games?” it seems they are making a mistake that the ps3 made early (an “all in one”). i have since got a ps3 for exclusives and am happy with it too, but damn. MS could be really screwed this gen. i can’t wait to see pricing.

    • beerkin

      Hahahahaaha!!!! Great stuff.

  • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

    Come on, neither of the two are doing anything that Nintendo has done which is why the Wii U has flopped. As of now, the Wii U is in the position of a filthy hooker – they are fucked!

      The Wii U is in a better position than they were before the Xbox One reveal

      Ever take a dump with the devil in the pale moon light?

      WTF? The Wii U has sold MORE than the 360/ps3 during the same window.

      Check out this link. His impression at :40 reminds me of you.

      • Petri

        Well, Sony messed up with pricing, console was set to sell for no loss, but people just were not ready for that.
        Unless they repeat their mistake, they might sell decent.

        Xbox have always been crap, have nothing to defend that.

  • JB

    I wonder if anybody in the media world addressed the huge elephant in the room? That elephant being that with all these added features coming to XBox Live, how much are we expected to pay for their gold subscription once the One launches?

  • http://www.facebook.com/AJ.Fowl Andrew Chambers

    So, except for the GPU, the One and PS4 are the same…

    So I have decided I’m only using my Wii U and PC this gen.

    • Petri

      That is my setup as well.
      Any multiplatform games that might skip Wii U, I’ll get from Steam sale.

  • Dominic Coradazzi

    Now let’s talk game line-up

  • DragonSilths

    That reveal was a disaster. EA, SPORTS, COD, MULTIMEDIA GALORE. They forgot its supposed to be a Video Game Console. Microsoft has no standards. Partnering with EA…a company that won worst company in North America 2 years in a row. The Halo TV series is cool, but seriously nothing interested me at all. As for Forza 5 or whatever it was…Project Cars looked better in my opinion.

  • Frank

    Wow great name makes wii u seems genius

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    I’ve said it many times. XBOX will be the loser this gen. Sony and Nintendo have already won

    • Fred

      How can you possibly say something like that before 2 of them are even for sale?

      • NkoSekirei

        well frankly xbox one is gonna be more focus on kinect which it sucks

        • Fred

          How do you think you have any idea if the new Kinect sucks. Personally I don’t like the original Kinect, but this one is supposed to be better. Maybe I’ll actually like this one.

    • NkoSekirei

      yep but i still respect sony and microsoft gamers like they do on this site

  • Brandon Betlej

    Hahah why is the wii u being compared with real next gen consoles? I love the wii u and cant wait till we get games. But this is no comparison, wii u hardware is unbelievably horrible. Should not even be on here.

    • http://www.facebook.com/kpuliyanda Korey Puliyanda

      “next gen” doesn’t only entail hardware capabilities, it means a new system from that specific company.

      • Fred

        yes Wii U is part of the same gen as PS4 and Xbox one, and yes it does and will provide me with a lot of fun, but he’s trying to say comparing the specs makes Wii U look terrible.

    • NkoSekirei

      ur an idiot dude wii u is part of the next gen consoles and it runs on 2011 specs making it more powerful then ps3 and 360 cause they run on mid 2000 specs but like reggie said wii u is able to compete against ps4 and xbox one.

      • oontz

        you still think it can complete? Wait till you see Watch Dogs Wiiu vs PS4 comparisons… then you’ll see how well it can compete.

  • Clel

    It seems like the 8th generation of videogames went for more confusing names of consoles. PS4–cool. Xbox ONE? WII U?
    For the Wii U, it sounds it’s like some update for the Wii.
    Xbox One sounds like you’re talking about the first Xbox.

    And seriously, think about it. What does the Xbox One and PS4 have to offer that makes it ‘so essential’ to upgrade from the Xbox 360 or PS3?

    • jay

      This generation we will party like it’s 1999!!

  • Quicksilver88

    I would be really interested to see the specs on these new 8 core cpus…..There are not even 8 core single die CPUs available in the Pc market and so this chip has got to be very expensive or make concessions in the cache or other features. Maybe they are mis-representing as maybe it will be 4 core and 8 threads. BTW the nintendo CPU is 3 core with 6 threads so the processor gap may not be as wide as people think. Aso PowerPC architecture CPUs have always had lower specs than x86 but produced similar computational power. I still really look forward to Watchdogs this year to see how the ps360, wii-u, xbo/ps4 versions all stack up as this will be an early indicator of the relative gap between platforms. Right now I think the biggest enhancement for these systems is 8gb ram vs 2 gb for U……with that said we know Sony is sharing Ram between cpu/gpu and microsoft has already claimed Kinnect features will eat up 25% of their resources when this is a feature no one seems to care about.

    • Ultranist

      yes they are and they are called FX-8XXX

    • oontz
      • Quicksilver88

        I don’t really think this article says that….look already EA is backtracking and saying they are going to publish on U just not as much as the others, that is pretty much what they have done for the last 3 generations. Honestly as long as WiiU get’s Madden, FIFA, Golf, and Disney titles, and an occasional NFS that will most likely satisfy the WiiU audience. The guy who wrote this article obvously knows nothing about development. Crytek has Cryengine 3 up and runnin in no time on WiiU and it is now being used to develop Shadow of Eternals, Unreal 3 was up in no time and was used for ME3 and Batman AC. Rebellion games said they had no problem getting their Asure engine running and we will see Sniper V2 later this week. NFSMW was ported in months and made better. Nintendo themselves are supporting unity engine and html5 making WiiU very attractive to Indie devs. Look the powerPC has been around forever and these devs know it well, also its not like this is an x86 only dev world when ios, driod, and other devices all use various processors. If you (or the dude who wrote the article) knew anything about development they would know that runnin on a different CPU is just a matter of compiling your code. This has little to nothing to do with the sucess of the WiiU….truly it is all about unit sales and Nintendo properly embracing, supporting, and promoting 3rd parties, which they have not done a great job of (outside of their big japanese brethren like capcom, namco, sega, altus and UBI). Look WiiU is not going to get all the multiplatforms, but it will get enough and with Nintendos own incredible stable and the japanese devs, and the promising looking pc/table to wiiU indie scene I think it is going to have lots to play and more exlcusives and variety than the compeditors. Time will tell.

  • david jarman

    Hey, don’t take your anger out on us just cause the Xbox turned out to be disappointing. This is just video games not life and death, remember? Besides, I thought you were buying a ps4. As of nintendo characters, I doubt master chief will have the same lasting appeal as nintendo characters do. Apparently time never left them behind cause people that don’t play games were the t-shirts and clothes. This is coming from someone who plays halo.

    • Ninknowing

      I play halo too but i didn’t like what 343 did with the game -.-, although Microsoft can kiss the xbox one goodbye because i didn’t see a big difference between the 360 and the one and they didn’t even change the interface how do you expect people to want to buy your system? And people say that Nintendo is having a hard time telling the difference between Wii and Wii U, you wanna see a hard time? Just wait and watch the disaster with the xbox one.

    • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

      I have no anger, but I do get tired of the paid agents steady lying thinking they are doing a good job. PS4 looks to be on my list since MS wants to be so intrusive. Halo characters as well as others, have this modern era of gaming and the games stand out more than the characters. Nintendo fails to get with the times, so they are forced to be stuck in the past.

      • Silent

        Nintendo- Not happening since 1989. Anything else you want to say?

        Not really. Nintendo is kinda like Star Wars. There’s just a huge following and lots of games are cult classics. I was at Star Wars weekend and the DJ was doing nintendo mixes. The crowd was going nuts screaming nintendo while Zelda mixed up to mario and skrillex. We are talking about a 1000 or more getting down. The crowd was a lot of young adults.

That’s normal behavior by any standards. However, someone who constantly attacks a website that by no measures effects theirs or anyone else’s life just for sheer enjoyment of getting off on upsetting people and always trying to find some way to rationalize why one does it. Well, that’s a social and mental disorder.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            You would be right – if your were right! I NEVER attacked this website so stop trying to put things on me that I don’t do or write. You just want to justify your rebellious attitude towards me.

          • david jarman

            I’m not trying to have a rebellious attitude towards you, I’m just trying to share a little insight of how you look sometimes. Especially for someone who doesn’t own a wii u, much less want to own one. So if you’re not attacking the website(its fans) and not trying to rationalize why you are on here by responding with “I’m fighting against all the lying paid agents”, “trying to stop the propaganda” or “because I can and nintendo is done”…then what are you doing?

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

            Hey, hey – I never said I did not want a Wii U, I am not interested in one because I have not seen anything that makes me want to buy one. I have not seen next-gen graphics. If they never arrive, then I won’t buy one. Right now, the PS4 is looking good to me, but I suspect they may come with their usual ugly design. Then again, the Xbox is not all that nice looking so the PS45 might look good this time.

          • david jarman

            Just trying to get a better understanding of you that’s all, but hold onto your butt cause they will be coming. I’m just gonna wait a little bit this time for ps4 and let price drop a little and for some of the games to go platinum price. I jump the gun on the wii u which wasn’t too bad, unlike the time I jumped gun on Xbox and ps2. You’d think I’d learn by now. So I’m just gonna grab the games I do want for wii u and keep a close eye on ps4.

I’m not even as against you as most people here, but I think it’s like the ultimate irony endgame, you making fun about geeks. you have so nothing else to do the whole day than trying to start nerdwars on the internet, you may really rethink your whole lifestyle and stop driving those people here crazy. of course there are fanboys here, what else do you expect? go to an xbox or sony-fansite and look what you’ll find there, it’s always the same. of course people aren’t very objective about the stuff they ove here so what’s your fucking point? you keep posting like 10times a day always the same shit about fanboys being fanboys and you really don’t have anything else to say? man, please stop it, it’s just not good for your karma. I personally do believe that a platform like this really could be more open to critizism, and in some rare cases the stuff you’re writing even can be seen as kinda proper critique. but if you just ruin that by intentionally pissing people off, then what the hell. in that case you are just not welcome here as this isn’t a playground for you to work out your personal problems.

  • YiyeUniverseMB

    PS4’s RAM will do more for games than ONE’s as the XBOX ONE has Kinect on all the time and 3 Operating Systems.

  • john

    IBM? GPU? 3-core, 8-core? I don’t know what any of this means. I’ll just see which one has better games.

  • A SNES Day Off

    In terms of graphics performance for dedicated games consoles, I would suggest that we are about as close to a plateau as we’ll ever be (certainly for the next 6 or 7 years).

    Studios are already spending more and more money to cover development time and manpower, but the fact remains that as the power of the hardware increases, it also becomes increasingly costly to squeeze the best performance from a C/GPU and cope with the increasing scope of a title.

    A great subject for all this is of course Sony. Prior to the PS3’s introduction, Sony treated the product as if it were, by all accounts, a super computer that would change everything. Their marketing on reflection was absolutely dire, because they used numbers and data to make the machine appear more advanced than it actually was.
    It was an attempt to use technical jargon was a smoke screen.

    Then came Gran Turismo 5 – a title that spent so long in production it was released over half way through the PS3’s life-cycle, and even then fell foul to DLC.

    The point is, visual effects are bottle-knecked by your TV’s resolution. 1080p is of course great, but until this is exceeded, I believe that the hardcore majority of gamers will become increasingly frustrated at an apparent lack of “innovation” when, in fact, studios can’t take games any further graphically.

    That is why Nintendo is in prime position for the future, because although the Wii U doesn’t boast a great line-up of games currently, it has innovative features actually packaged into the product. If you want anything even remotely similar to a GamePad with the PS4/Xbox, say hello to Microsoft Surface, tablets and ‘Glass’…

    *shivers*

  • Unimportant Bystander

    The Wii U’s specs are basically rumors/speculation right now. The Xbox1 and PS4 specs are the only ones that are confirmed. So basically the other 2 consoles don’t know what other hidden features the Wii U has. Only time will tell.

    • oontz

      hidden features?? LOL

      • Marc Duarte

        A lot of the Wii U’s CPU and GPU architecture is still a mystery, so it’s quite possible there’s features that we’re not aware of. The GPU itself has been heavily customized; there’s nothing like it on the market. Until Nintendo releases the full specs, the true power of the Wii U cannot be accurately gauged. That 1.2GHz rating for the CPU is nothing more than a guess. The true number could be much higher.

        • Unimportant Bystander

          Plus I think that 1.2ghz and 550mhz are just the Wii U’s idle frequency. That’s what so good and frustrating about Nintendo. They want to make sure that their console will be a good quality without boasting its performance. However until Nintendo gives them the real specifications, they will just have to make most out of what they know about it. That’s why there are so many developers with mixed reviews because they’re unsure of the Wii U’s power.

  • John Raybell

    Its crap that’s posted like this that gives trolls fuel to burn and makes us wiiudaily Nintendo fans suffer.

  • Talesgirl015

    Sadly Nintendo lost the casuals to mobile/tablets, they’re not getting that market back. Nintendo being perceived as a kid’s company.. I guess appeals to very narrow markets, and there is very little that allows them to branch out

    • John Raybell

      Hate to say it but your wrong, this mobile/tablet taking over the market is a myth.
      By this time next year the Wii U will be doing great. A tab or mobile device will never replace a gamers console, tab and mobiles are what we get along side, we don’t even relate the two to our consoles, and they are also grabbing a different market all together, They haven’t replaced anything, look at number of console gamers, ALL TIME HIGH right now. Also mobile/tablets games aren’t really the kind of gaming you do all the time, its on the move gaming, 15 min here 15 min there, on the toilet, bus, in a car what ever, but replacing consoles, NO WAY

      People should understand that all users aren’t day one buyers nor year one buyers, and almost all consoles at launch suffer, that’s how it has been for the last few gens at least.

      Also now days a good amount of people own two consoles, the WiiU will more then likely take one of those places.

      When some AAA Nintendo titles start to show up, and for sure by Christmas the wiiu will have an advantage, not many parents will be willing to fork over the extra cash for the Xbox One and Ps4, The WiiU will more then likely get a price drop before Christmas and will see massive sales around Holiday season.

      HISTORY SHOWS THIS :)

      • oontz

        First of all having to wait 13months to get some AAA titles is BULLSHIT. Further more If the wiiu gets a price drop before christmas this day one buyer will be furious with nintendo! I bought a wii u day one and have been waiting for some AAA titles to come about… what do you know I am still waiting.

          yeah waiting sucks, but that how its been, xbox 360 and ps3 were the same way. that all im done with people like you lol jesus fuck, understanding of a 3 year old

          • oontz

            do you even read the posts you reply too? Or just spew verbal diarea all over your keyboard? I have been gaming since the intellevision years… I have a greater understanding of not only gaming but the industry that it has built. For a customer to wait almost a year for AAA software from the manufacturer is unheard of. I bought a wii u with high hopes… I am still waiting.

          • John Raybell

            unheard of? Really, are you kidding me. This is pretty much how every launch is. first years are slow, consoles just came out, dev kits haven’t been out long enough to do allot with them, by Christmas you will be crying about not having enough money to buy all the games you want. Happens every time.

            In any case There are enough AA and AAA titles to keep you busy till more come out, just stop your crying baby shit.

    Unlike Nintendo, I know both “Xbox One and PS4 will sell well due to the fact that they’re the first next gen consoles released tech wise; it’s been almost 10 years and gamers are more ready to move on to the next set of consoles. even third party publishers will move on, and all the games move on then the fans will follow. “

      the fact that they’re the first next gen consoles released tech wise…”

      Well, no. Technology does not determine if something is ‘next gen’ or not. The Saturn, N64 and PS1 were all direct competitors, but the Saturn was the weakest of the three; it was still a 5th generation console. The NES? It had to fight the Master System and Atari 7800, but was inferior to both (the MS in particular mopped the floor with it in regards to graphical presentation as well as sound) – all were 3rd generation, however. The 8th generation cycle began in 2011 with the introduction of the 3DS, a device on the same ‘power’ level as the PS2 (or thereabouts). Do you not consider it a next gen device? It’s weaker than its competitor, the Vita, yet is its direct foe in the marketplace.

      The ‘casualization’ of both the PlayStation and Xbox brands was set in motion during the 7th generation and now we’re seeing the full effects of it. The Xbox One a cable box? It uses Skype and comes with a Siri knock-off? The PlayStation 4 updates your FaceBook when you unlock trophies? You can stream games to YouTube? Who in the hell needs any of this? They’ve sold out almost as badly as many accuse Nintendo of doing with the Wii, m’lady. The casual market is alive and well, apparently, using ‘hardcore’ devices. Sony and Microsoft just have far better PR when it comes to these antics than Nintendo ever could muster.

      But I suppose such logic makes me a ‘fanboy,’ despite the fact I intend to buy all 3 consoles eventually, right?

      little girl, I think its time for you to move on and play with your barbies.

      You have no idea what NEXT GEN means at ALL.

      WiiU is more NEXT gen then xbox one and ps4, those are updated consoles, where as WiiU offers SOMETHING NEW, A NEW WAY to play.

      But In reality the WiiU,xbox One and ps4 are ALL NEXT GEN CONSOLES, WIIU being the first Next gen console of the NEXT gen, sony and microsoft almost a year late.

      WiiUPC :) That’s the way to go.

        Wii U may be “NEXT GEN”, but is barely on the same playing field as the current gen.

        Yes, it has more ram and a cheap tablet controller, but it cannot compete with the PS4 or Xbox One since it won’t get any of the high end games…. If it does they will be watered down ports nothing like the real versions.

        I have a Wii U and have love for Nintendo, but I only buy their consoles for the first party games…. If it were my call Nintendo would go third party for console games/special controllers etc. and only have handheld hardware.

        Anyone who thinks the Wii U can go toe to toe with PS4 and Xbox is delusional.

        • BL4CKSH33P

          This just in(puts hand to ear piece) I’m being told that the hd consoles of the last generation, ps3 and xbox360, lost to the nintendo wii despite having better specs and being hd capable.

      • oontz

        almost a year late and almost as many games available for all 3 systems, ha ha

  • John Raybell

    WiiU/Pc is still the way to go, a True console to go with our Gaming PC not those other two under powered Pc console wanna be’s, points at Sony and Microsoft.

    • oontz

      well a gaming pc by logic wouldn’t fit the definition of a console

      • ranjeybaby

        way to miss the point.

      • John Raybell

        Really? and next you will say consoles aren’t PCs. Dude ITS THE SAME.

        What about a console isnt a PC a vice verse last I checked my PC does what the xbox one does and more, and architecture is really close, had hard drive, video card, ram, cpu, mother board, have you even taken a console apart, say an xbox360, what the fuck would you call it?

  • John Raybell

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/21/ea-developing-wii-u-games-after-all HAHA So EA is after all making games for Wiiu lol 2

  • devmiles

    do the math… although graphics don’t primarily matter… we see the specs of the real next gen.. wii-u is not next gen at all

    • MetroidZero

      Graphics = Specs

      You cancelled yourself out. lol

      • oontz

        graphics don’t = specs. what about improved AI and larger life like game worlds. Those things take powerful machines to run.

    • Holyfire

      WiiU is next gen in nigh on every definition. The architecture (not raw processing power) is current. Its Nintendos next system its generating. Performance wise it is beyond the pasing gen (even if only by a small margain.
      And WiiU despite all the tech PS4 and XBOX One have shiwn, WiiU will still pull off gaming functions thay cannot via the gamepad if nothing else.
      And Nintendos first party games will give both competitors massive runs for their money. If not still be better than most games they will have.
      You can play CoD 14
      I can still do that on my current PC anyways. With better controls

    There is only one reason I won’t get a wii u is the pad, I would like to get both PS4 and Xbox one but I won’t be forced to use hand movements it should be a option, I won’t talk to my TV

    • beerkin

      The gamepad?!?! That IS the reason to get a Wii U!!!!!

  • KnowIedgeiswhatsup

    I have seen the errors in my way. Trolling is bad.

    • Petri

      Not again this s**t…

  • Destructonator101

    PS4 vs. Wii U vs……… VCR.
    Yes, the xbox one is a VCR.

  • Elem187

    Uhm the two 8 core jaguars in both systems aren’t “massive”. They are at best a tablet CPU…. It will be outperformed easily by pretty much any OEM CPU on the market.

  • Lunatic

    I might end up using Nintendo TVii while watching TV on my XBox.

      You missed: DOG!

  • Refrayin

    For me, the specs of the consoles are borderline meaningless. If you wan’t good graphics you don’t buy a console period. You buy a PC. Which isn’t at all that expensive as all the console-only players wants everyone to think.

    PC for the multiplats and the best graphics. Wii U for the best exclusives ever, and the gameplay that i can’t get on my PC.

    Everyone should also remember that the technical graphic capability doesn’t mean that much in how we perceive graphics. Xenoblade may be 480p and on the Wii, but it still looks hell of a lot better than Skyrim on my PC with more than 10 gigabytes of mods.
