You do realize that, seeing as the Wii U is more powerful than the PS3 and 360, and we still don't have stable PS3 and 360 emulators, a Wii U emulator is a long way off, right?

3DS:4897-5935-1924; PS3 sold in anticipation of PS4. If you added CrimsonEnigma, I no longer use the account.

We got a Wii emulator fairly early since it was based on the same architecture as the Gamecube. Guess what? Wii U is based on the same architecture as the Gamecube and Wii...

No problem at all, the PS3 and 360 have pretty different tech from other hardware. Wii U from the beginning was known to be just some overclocked Wii.

There really isn't anything special about the Wii U and it will be easy to emulate it at this rate.

The real problem with the emulation would be figuring out how to utilize the Gamepad on a PC. lol

Probably the same way the DS is emulated...? Or just connect a UPad to the computer through bluetooth once they sell them separately.

And you don't realize that it is not the hardware of the console that limits the emulation. Because if you did, you wouldn't be speaking nonsense like this.

The Wii U is not even as powerful as the Xbox 360. It can't run all the upcoming games like Bioshock.

The Wii U looks to be a very emulator friendly console tbh.
