Short version: Wii U memory is weirder than PS3 and 360, which is why you get things like textures failing to load in games.

Remember how back in 06, devs complained that developing for the PS3 was hard compared to the 360? Same deal here, except now the issue isn't just porting but also optimizing games so they don't run like crap. Once again we see how much Nintendo loves third-parties.

That is not the short version or any version of the truth really.
3rd parties where the ones praising the RAM and saying that while they don't have the actual numbers, it is not slow at all.

Read the article next time.

That topic should never had been made. It was pathetic, in a hilarious manner, and just downright painful to read. Poor TC, a little extra time to go back and finish an education might save that pitiful creature.

Anyways...thanks for the link TC (in this topic) despite the fact it's going to be misunderstood by the less intelligent on this board.
