Hmmm... who to trust...


Shin'en has worked on handhelds and some Wiiware titles, the other studio has worked on Metro 2033 for the Xbox 360 and PC(DX9,DX10 and DX11)...
Not to downplay Shin'en, but this studio clearly has alot more experience with more modern hardware


PANDA doesn't understand that big tech talk, don't overload him.

Regardless of it whether it's slow or not let's stop pretending that people really care about Metro now

Metro sucks. I didn't buy my Wii U to play Metro.


Pretty much lol. The only reason Metro even was heard of was for its graphics and ability to put high end PC's to their knees. Other than that it is just another crap shooter with nothing new to offer.


I loved Metro and can't wait for the sequel. It's a fun game, just because it isn't coming to Wii U doesn't mean you have to hate it.


Yep, the first Metro was quite good.


I kind of hate when you agree with me, haha. Unfortunately I feel the need to argue against fanboys on either side. I'm pretty sure in just this one topic I have both sided with Nintendo fanboys and against them at different times.

Regardless of it whether it's slow or not let's stop pretending that 3rd party devs ever had any intention of fully supporting the WiiU over the upgraded HD twins.

Its a double edged sword. If the CPU was a lot better than the price would go up and after seeing how the ps3 struggled early I'm sure they didn't want to make a repeat mistake. On the other hand, having the CPU they have now it makes it cheaper at launch but it could cause 3rd party support to be limited. I don't think it will be a huge issue until sony and ms launch their new consoles and 3rd party developers completely stop (assuming ms and sony's consoles are drastically more powerfu,l but it would be same to say they are at least going to be 4x as powerful as the ps3 & 360) developing for the Wii U.

on topic God Nintendo release the specs already.
Slow CPU
Slow RAM

but the SNES was slower and I thought it was better than the Genesis.


The SNES had a slower processor and lower frame rate than the Genesis, but it was capable of displaying higher quality graphics. If the Wii U had a blazing GPU, then you might be onto something, but it doesn't. Also, any game that relies on heavy AI or processing tons of data is going to be severely bottlenecked. We're already seeing this with Dynasty Warriors.
