How can the Wii U possibly compete with the PS4's graphics?

Good question. Well, I suppose the Wii U really is doomed, then.

Out of curiosity, do you consider the PS3 to be anywhere near the Wii U, graphically? Because if you do, you might want to check something out.

The PS3's GPU, the RSX Reality Synthesizer, has approximately the same specs as the AMD Mobility Radeon 5650 (technically speaking, the AMD GPU is slightly better than the PS3's GPU, but it still works for the sake of this argument).

The AMD Mobility Radeon 5650 scored a 531 on is benchmark test. Thus, we have:

PS3 - 531
Wii U - 873 - 342 higher than PS3
PS4 - 1,133 - 260 higher than Wii U

Now, if you think the gap between the PS3 and Wii U is marginal (and, for the record, it is very marginal), consider that, based on their rumored GPUs, the gap between the Wii U and PS4 will be even smaller.

Didnt the ps3 and 360s specs drop from what was originally announced and what was eventually realeased i expect the same to happen with ps4 and xbox next.

So using that scale how big is the gap between PS3 and 360?

Sure. Let's compare the Wii U (a system that will be released in under a week) to a Sony console that hasn't even been confirmed by Sony which probably won't be on store shelves until late 2014.

no console will ever be a graphics powerhouse, play the one with the games you enjoy.


You can't honestly tell me you enjoy their launch games. Even like 3 months after its release nothing decent is coming out.

There is no PS4 right now, so I don't quite care.
