Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Iwata Is Aware That People Believe That WiiU Is Underpowered And Says This Is A Misunderstanding

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has told investors that he is aware that a large number of developers and consumers believe that the Wii U is significantly underpowered and says that this is a misunderstanding. Iwata says that Nintendo really need to remedy this idea. He also told investors that a number of third-party developers aren’t supporting the console, but he believes that once third-party developers start producing hit franchises on the Wii U then other developers will think again about developing for the platform. Iwata understands that this won’t happen overnight, but Nintendo is working on revitalising Wii U after the summer.

I know they won't do it, because they never do (ever), but all the needless discussion would end if they would just release detailed specs about their consoles. I guess they just want to keep certain aspects a secret, or something.

Personally I don't care anyway. The only requirement I have is that's it's better than the last thing, which it is.



What a fucking liar!!!! It IS underpowered. Just compare it to the PS4... Get real Iwata!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Wel he isn't lying, cause he isn't comparing it to anything. He jsut said it it not under powered. 



 

 

Wait, Nintendo said that next generation was about innovation but now it is all a matter of "misunderstanding the power of the WiiU" by developers who live, work and earn their money by handling hardware specs. Sweet talk to take them investors to bed.

I earned "Proof of Omega", killed the FF7 Weapons, attained "Big Boss" in the "Patriots", found and killed the Red Chocobo in FFXII, platinumed Killzone 2 and LBP. What you got bitch!? Huh?

Well, after playing the stunningly beautiful title "Nintendo Land", I must say that it is indeed powerful enough. To me, at least.

It's a big shift from his declaration that "specs don't matter" before the Wii was out.

What happened to drawing people in to a new experience? They don't have a device that can win the power argument on specs alone. This sounds like a dicey idea, especially when the Wii did so well by sidestepping it last gen.



Have some time to kill? Read my shitty games blog. http://www.pixlbit.com/blogs/586/gigantor21

Take away the U and this could be a 2006 article.

He fails to mention the consoles that most people WiiU is underpowered compared to. WiiU being underpowered compared to PS4 and most likely Nextbox isn't a misunderstanding, it's fact.
