RUMOR: Next Xbox to be 20% more powerful than Wii U

 

This rumor comes from IGN and a rumor going around.

…the Xbox 720′s raw graphics processing power is expected to be six times that of the Xbox 360 and will yield 20-percent greater performance than Nintendo’s forthcoming console, the Wii U.

 

You are smart so I am sure you already figured this out. If this rumor is true the Wii U is 5 times more powerful than the current generation.

Kingdom Hearts 3D Soundtrack Listing Appears on Amazon

Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance is really getting the gold treatment from Square-Enix! Not only is it one of the prettiest, most colorful games to grace the Nintendo 3DS, not only is it the most substantial new S-E RPG to hit a Nintendo system in years, it's also set to receive a retail soundtrack release. According to the product's Amazon listing, it'll span three discs and will come to stores April 18, just a couple short weeks after the game's debut on March 29.

Personally I've always enjoyed the music from this series, and while these kinds of soundtrack releases seldom come stateside the prospect will keep me crossing my fingers in the meantime.
