WII U is only as powerful as the Xbox 360?

WII U is only as powerful as the Xbox 360

This is still only a rumor, so take it with a grain of salt. According to an unknown developer, the hardware spec featured on Nintendo’s latest WII U isn’t as great as they’ve been advertising. The specs would make it just as powerful as the current Xbox 360.

It turns out, based on information obtained by Wii U Daily from an unnamed Japanese developer currently porting a PS3 game to the new system, that those estimates may have been slightly generous. The Wii U will reportedly carry a quad core 3GHz CPU, 768 MB of RAM, and an unknown, 40nm ATI-based GPU. This puts it at around the same power as an Xbox 360. At best, it might be a slightly more robust system.

Their source also mentioned that Nintendo’s been considering another version of the console with a full gig of RAM, which might grant it an extra bit of brawn. There’s still a ways to go until the console’s release, though, so consider these specs less-than-final, if you please.

I am not sure what to make of this. Nintendo managed to make a killing by approaching gaming on a casual level, even with a lesser spec. But as the new generation draws closer and the casual gaming head rush seems to have died down a surprising bit, I am curious to see how the company will favor.
