Why are there so many inferior ports? Either lower framerate or muddier texture. As a nintendo fan in kinda makes me sad.T_T

Devs hate putting in any more effort than they have to and the Wii U has a very different architecture than PS360.

Yes, considering the date it launched, the hardware sadly is very weak indeed. :(

Even the total farce thats the Xbox One will outsell the Wii U and thats a joke.

Need For Speed, Splinter Cell, Deus Ex all look better on the Wii U than the 360/PS3 and it will just improve. It's weak compared to the xbone and PS4 but it's not that drastic as most will think.

I was going to give an actual answer, but since this is most likely a troll topic, I won't anymore.

It is a troll topic. Remember, with troll topics the only winning move is not to play.

There's a difference between "weak" and "weaker."

The Wii U uses a RISC architecture which is capable of a lot, but the PowerPC is an old design, which Nintendo tried to compensate some for.

One reason several ports look bad is that the 360 and even PS3 had a design based on brute forcing instructions through the pipelines. The Wii U can actually handle more instructions more efficiently, but that requires a significant reworking of the game code.

Likewise, the Jaguar has its own set of problems, but the X1 and PS4 are going to rely on a lot of cores to take care of those problems. The Wii U is weaker, but it's not "3 cores vs 8 cores" weaker. That's a simplification that's not as bad as comparing clock speeds but somewhat similar.
