Xbox 720 only going to be 20% stronger than wii U? Not impressed.

720 according to IGN is going to be 6x stronger than Xbox 360, and is only going to be 20% more powerful than the Wii U.

20% is far from impressive.

That's a weak difference of 1.2x
Which makes the wii U 4.8x stronger than the 360.

MS better drop kinnect and focus on games unless they plan on being in 3rd place just like Xbox 1 did.

Just sayin.

We don't even know how strong the Wii U is yet. Don't judge just yet.


Also it's just a Rumor.

Another thing. The PS3 is around 20% stronger then the Xbox 360 but it's been 6 years now & only a fraction of developers have used that 20%.

^ But when they do it's stunning.

But really, who cares how powerful it is compared to the other systems. What's exciting is how powerful it is compared to what we have now. And 6x is quite a jump.

You should buy Beyond Good and Evil HD. Seriously, please?

Go build your own console TC and make it 99 percent better then the Xbox 720 and see if any developer can afford to make a game for it.
