Go back to the PSO2 boards Gamer.

Also you seem to have forgotten that the gamepad is a decent part of the consoles cost.

Call me in 3-5 years when it is finally as good enough and supports enough games to be worth using. It would also be a major blow to Microsoft and could really hurt them in the long run.

What part of that PC plays Nintendo games and has a tablet controller?


Dolphin plays WII games @ 1080P and uses the controllers

With an update, same thing will happen with the WII-U


PS3 and Xbox 360 hasn't seen an emulator and the Wii U is said to be a bit stronger than these two systems. So no way the Wii U will be emulated anytime soon.

See my previous post.


I included all of that, I'm talking about better hardware used in the WII-U, and I've provided that.

There is no reason for that crap hardware they used in the WII-U, even with the controller the product would be listed under 350 in costs and manufacturering alone.

I'm not talking about building a PC to > the WII-U, I'm discussing the fact that the hardware in the WII-U is over priced compared to the parts on the market today, of couse buying in OEM and bulk would drive the costs down by more than 50%

TC as well as most people in this topic are completely clueless regarding what actually goes into production of a product (in this case game consoles).


So congratulations, you also stated the obvious that all consoles are extremely overpriced at launch as you can always build something better.

Take that Microsoft and Sony!

You sure showed them!

You cherry picked TC, like most children you had a narrow view and omitted everything that constitutes what these companies actually do and take as cost when making a product.

You, as well as the rest of the detritus on this board, are the pinnacle of human bias, bitterness and complete ignorance.


Best post of the day :D

It's an emulation issue, not hardware

Op doesnt know how to build a pc. Its funny. I could build a system around as strong as the wiiu for 150-200. But the wiiu game pad? Thats another matter entirely.
