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

#31DarkZV2BetaPosted 11/13/2012 5:08:00 PM
It's one crappy GPU and a slightly better GPU vs one crappy GPU that's slightly better than the crappy GPU, but slightly worse than the slightly better GPU.
It's not going to matter much either way. Those specs would put them within the same general range of "power". Like PS2 vs GameCube, or GameCube vs Xbox. Probably not even.

Well, the thing is...

Nintendo goes for 5-6 year consoles, MS and Sony go for 10 year consoles (starting with this gen according to them). Even though the Wii U can't compare to what the PS4/720 will be like, that doesn't mean Nintendo wont have another console to complete with them.

seeing as Nintendo didn't really give a f*** with the DS, Wii, and 3DS....I'm gonna guess they aren't really gonna give a f***.

For a "real next gen console" ps4s rumored specs are very poor compared to what a mid grade pc can do.

If you care for graphics, stop being a cheap ***** and get a pc that will blow all the consoles out of the water. Till you man up and do that, the Wii-U will be as good as the PS4/720.

Wii U doesn't need to compete with that. You will pay out of the butt for that, and Sony certainly won't sell the PS4 at a loss, because they're already losing money day in and day out.

Specs mean nothing to me, only good gameplay. When your favorite corporation you play fanboy to, TC, ruins themselves, don't go crying because you decided to play corporate loyaltist.

Real gamers appreciate ALL gaming systems and games, not graphics and the systems that play said games. Those are wannabe gamers. :)

This is completely irrelevant because Sony's plummeting credit rating prevents them from developing a new console.


Please be here around this time next year so I can rub the ps4's existence all over your face.

The man is right.

And graphics are getting EXPENSIVE. Even if Sony makes superior specs they're going to have to pay for it. People are complaining about WiiU being limited and Nintendo is starting off selling it at a loss! Imagine what kind of loss Sony would incur. Plus more graphics means more cost for Devs too, which ostracizes everything except the annual rehashed COD.

Plus
-Like people keep saying: Consoles will NEVER be up to PC standards (imagine having to pay $2000 for a console).
-Vita is totally doing fantastic with it's better graphics...wait...

Vita's failing has more to do with it being too much like a console experience. Studios would rather make a game for a console with an established user base if the handheld is console like. Thats the vita's dilemma.

Better hardware supports expensive as well as low-budget projects. If you owned a 360 or ps3, you should know this by now.
