"Wii U has LOW System Specs" by The Witness Developer

When a game developer says your console is weak, your console IS weak. The Wii U is "next gen" my fanny.

"The Wii U still has pretty low system specs, so it came down to a choice between the next Microsoft console or the next Sony console."

Thanks a lot, now I have to rattle off about the specs so I can sleep tonight.

It IS next gen. A gen is a period of time, not power. This is Nintendo's next gen machine, and although it only about as powerful as a PS3, thats good enough for what NINTENDO does.

Well gee-whiz, thanks for opening up my eyes. I better go sell my system right away, then. Darn... and I was having such a great time with it.

Good to know this guy is a fanboy. Won't buy his game even if I get a PS4.

I really do think Blow is full of himself, and was too lazy to care about learning the WIiU.

The other developers have not said anything like this. Not even Blizzard or Rockstar.

I take their views more than that guy.

Believe it or not, my purpose isn't to "troll" the Wii U boards.

Much. ;)

While I do find Nintendo's latest console to be seriously lacking, I was rather surprised by this comment. From the preview of "The Witness" for the PS4, it doesn't exactly scream "OMG! Look at the next level of gaming!!" in quite the same way as Watch Dogs did last year. In fact, it looks a lot like a PC game from ten years ago.

And also...8 GB DR5 RAM!!!!! W.O.W. How much does the Wii U have again? That's not dedicated to the OS? Had to get that out of my system.

:D

I don't think "generation" means what you think it means...

That's my point. What we saw of his game is nothing amazing. I actually found the game boring to watch. We get all this, no filler crap, and then we watch... crap.
