Why do everyone make a big stink over WiiU's CPU Clock Spd...

...being lower than gen 7, but keeps quiet about the PS4 and XBOne also being in the same ballpark of CPU clock spd as the WiiU?

Different architecture means the comparisons are not as direct. The Wii U gets called out on this because its a low clock speed as well as a Power PC.

It doesn't matter anyway. As far as specs are concerned, PS4 and One are around the corner, and all the king's horses and all the king's men won't couldn't make Wii U comparable again.

Povertystation?

PS4's only $399, $50 more than the only Wii U model people are actually buying

People are buying it because it's a good deal. Also, the $400 basic PS4 should only be compared in price point to the $300 basic Wii U, as it's not offering you a free game with it, nor is it giving you a 10% discount on digital titles.

I guess you're just being intentionally confrontational or not looking at facts.

Because people don't know about technology. They don't know about architecture, programming environment, API, engines, etc. It's like those people who think the Wii U is barely on par with the XBOX 360 and PS3, yet they fail to consider that the Wii U hardware is 6-7 years newer than the pieces inside these two consoles.

And what is wrong with PowerPC? It's been used for gaming consoles for multiple generations, and it's one of the most widely used and customizable CPUs out there. Ranging from gaming consoles, to Servers, to Fighter Jets. While the PS4 uses a low end Tablet processor.
