Irrelevent as they are last Gen Systems. But the PS3 has 256MB RAM I believe

The XBOX 360 has 512 MB of RAM

The PS3 has 256MBX2 of dedicated RAM So it has 512 in total, but since it is fragmented, into two (256MB of dedicated RAM), it suffers greatly from texture loading (Texture pop-up) and has not sufficient space for cross-game chat (Since it is dedicated RAM, the resources are fixed, and therefore cannot be allocated to where it is needed; in this case, for the cross-game chat). This is why the PS3 will never have the cross-game chat option

you have to realize

512gb to a console is like 1gb to a pc
1gb to a console is like 2gb to a pc.

console ram is seriously more dedicated to what's happening at the time unlike pc ram.

so you don't need as much.

So the Wii U has 1.5gb of RAM. (with 512mb set aside for system memory) it also has 32mb of eDRAM. The next question is, does the GPU have vRAM and if so, how much and is it included in the total RAM being reported?
