Why is the Wii U weaker than PS4/XONE?

#1Numbuh100Posted 8/11/2013 8:05:14 AM
When it can run Mario Kart 8 in 1080p with 60fps. Surely people who played the Mario Kart 8 demo should've known how weak the Wii U is by now.

It's not about the specs, it's about how they want their games to run.

Wii U has a lot of different games in terms of gameplay/aesthertics, compared to PS4/XONE.

The PS4 also has quite a unique selection that the X1 and Wii U don't offer.

It's not about the horrible consoles themselves, but the wonderful games that are produced.

Because they built a console based on 7 year old technology because it was more affordable.

The Wii U can run 1080p 60fps while streaming onto the touchscreen controller, that's an amazing feat, especially considering 3rd party devs are only aiming for 30fps on PS4/XBOne.

PS4 and X1 could run Mario Kart 8 in 1080p and 60 fps. But they can't run the Witcher 3 at 1080p and 60 fps... Why do you think this is?

Hmm no...

Bigger, better looking games means a sacrifice, framerate for graphics. MK8 is in 1080p 60fps because the karts, character models and tracks are simpler, with less taxing textures, lighting, physics, AI etc.

The MK8 devs made sacrifices for MK8 to be in 60fps and native 1080p (if this is true). Thankfully the art style means these sacrifices aren't very noticable.
