Unnamed devs say Wii U not as powerful as 360/PS3, lacks shaders and moreClick Here to View Story
"No, it's not up to the same level as the PS3 or the 360. The graphics are just not as powerful." - Dev 1
"Yeah, that's true. It doesn't produce graphics as well as the PS3 or the 360. There aren't as many shaders, it's not as capable. Sure, some things are better, mostly as a result of it being a more modern design. But overall the Wii U just can't quite keep up." - Dev 2
Another dev talked a bit about the controller, stating information we already knew. Where things get different is when he mentions the idea of redesigning the Wiimote to have a different look but same tech.
"The whole thing about the tablet controller is that you only get one of them, and you can only use one and it's not completely independent. The base console has to be on, and you have to be in range." Queried about other controllers, the source was clear: "Other controllers are just Wiimotes, or other Wii controllers. They may change the form factor or looks a bit, but it's the same controller."
