It is time for a little head scratching folks! Developers working on Nintendo’s next console, the Wii U, have said the system is on par power wise when compared to the current generation of consoles. You heard that right, Nintendo’s next gen console is almost on par with the the PS3 and Xbox 360 which have been out for years. Good old Nintendo will have some explaining to do if they want people buy into a next gen console that is only as powerful as the last generation.
On a brighter note, Nintendo has yet to align with Sony and Microsoft on the used games debacle. Sony and Microsoft have said that neither of their new systems will allow a used game to work on the same level as a brand new copy. This has sparked a lot of controversy and out cry from gamers and resellers alike. If the Wii U ends up being the only system allowing used games, would that sway you away from the two front runners?
If Nintendo wants to compete with the next generation, they will need to crank things up a little. Two of the biggest drawbacks with the Wii, online capability and graphic power will both need to be addressed with the Wii U. What do you think Nintendo will do to compete with the power houses that both Microsoft and Sony are sure to release?
