I thought it was the CPU that was clocked slower. Not the GPU which is really a GPGPU and has gotten alot of praise.

It is the CPU and cleary the writter just has no clue what the actual issues are. Like the writer herd these things on the grapevine and decided to write an article from it rather than researching.

I'm not much of a tech guy but if the U can produce that Japanesse Garden and Zelda E3 demo graphics, I will be totally fine with its power.

If it can sure the WiiU will be decent, but tech demos usually are ebtter than what real games are as they have more action going on in them.

I just hope Zelda come sout liek that and not in a cartoon style. No problem with the cartoon style, but the WiiU is meant to be showcasing HD graphics

 

Saying that check out this fan made majoras mask in HD.

The writer doesn't know what he's talking about, to be quite honest.

As far as criticism goes, there hasn't been a console released yet that didn't deserve a share of it at launch and the Wii U is no exception. However, a lot of the criticism has been unfair. Judging the abilities of a system by launch titles, for example, is just a bad idea. We really won't know just how good Wii U multi-plats are going to be until we see a few that are developed concurrently with the other platforms. Likewise, we won't know how the Wii U measures up to the other next gen systems until those systems are released.

So, it begins with a rather glaring typo in the very 1st sentence. Then, there are more throughout the whole thing.

Then, the guy starts talking about the many opinions and the criticism surrounding the WiiU, both good and bad. I prepare for a long but potentially informative read. Then he mentions the system getting a lot of ports, and he talks about its reportedly weak GPU.

Then, well, nothing. That was it. Eh?

Rubbish article. My opinion.

Well, I have a wii u and the only criticism I would give o it is its OS. Im not sure what Nintendo was thinking with some of the things they did with the OS. Friend request arent done in the friend channel, to access wii stuff you have to boot up the old wii OS, and then there are the load times. The console has great potential, I just think nintendo should have focused more on ironing out their OS before launch...

What criticism?

Bad looking ports doesn't count.

Warranted.

Wii U isn't future-proof. But then again neither was the Wii and look how that turned out.
I think as a consumer you should be disappointed with Nintendo's decisions, but as an investor you should be really happy.
