I've been told time and time again by hardcore Nintendo fanboys that hardware specs don't matter when in reality it does matter. It always has.
I often hear arguements like "it's not the hardware it's what you do with it" which is so fucking stupid and backwards and only said to damage control for Nintendo when the only reason Nintendo makes underpowered systems is to generate more profit (which they don't even need) at the cost of limiting the creativity of their devs. There is no one way gamers benefit from this shit.
And to make it worse the same guys damage controlling for Nintendo are total hipocrites. These same persons are the ones who left skid marks in their pants when they saw the Zelda U tech demo and the lighting and physics effects in 3D World and all I can say is "Yes, welcome to almost a decade ago".
Same thing with the Wii U. I'm confident it will get stronger sales with the 2014 line up but do you think it will be getting PS4/XO multiplats when it gets a larger install base? NOPE! Games like the Witcher 3 are 30 times bigger than the last game which is miles pass Wii U capabilites. You Wii U guys could be playing awesome multiplats in the future if Nintendo wasn't so cheap. Blame Nintendo. Don't defend them.
