How powerful is Wii U? Nintendo speak...

Nintendo 'don't focus on tech specs'

Nintendo has refused to be drawn into a debate about the power of Wii U, insisting that the experience of playing games is more important than processing power.

Aliens Colonial Marines director Brian Martell recently told us that Wii U has more RAM than other consoles, but Nintendo still won't say how powerful its new console is.

However, a Nintendo spokesperson told Digital Trends: "We do not focus on technology specs. We understand that people like to dissect graphics and processing power, but the experience of playing will always be more important than raw numbers."

So don't expect Nintendo to reveal the specs of Wii U any time soon. Want to know more about Nintendo's new console? Here's everything you need to know about Wii U.

    I think Nintendo just wants to keep as much secrets as possible about the Wii U before E3.

  2. Oocoo Jr. Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 09:54

    This is what I've been saying for years. Good on Nintendo!

  3. ninjafox Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 09:58

    It makes sense to me for Nintendo to not focus on the raw power of the WiiU after all they didn't with the Wii and always said that it was more important that they focused on the enjoyment people got out of playing rather than how the games looked. Suddenly moving away from this to focus on the figures would seem odd so good on Nintendo to sticking to what they know best, providing a fun gaming experience.

    of course raw numbers don't matter, exhibit A; Super Mario Bros, incredibly technically basic by any of today's standards, still brilliant fun.

    There has been a lot of articles saying that the console is underwhelming, but i really don't think thats true. The Wii U will give people hours of fun whether its the most powerful thing or not

  6. lyingthroughyour Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 10:04

    I don't expect it to compete with 720 and PS4, but I do expect it to be significantly more powerful than the current gen (360,ps3) considering they're using five year old technology...

  7. HyrulianToad Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 10:07

    I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited about E3 ! :lol:

  8. SuperJonnyMario Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 10:22

    It doesn't matter how powerful the Wii U is! It's going to be the only console I'll ever buy in this gen of consoles! Nintendo Forever!

    "We understand that people like to dissect graphics and processing power, but the experience of playing will always be more important than raw numbers."

    Well said.

  10. AaronMclaren Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 10:45

    Well said Nintendo, sticking to what they know best and focussing on delivering the best gameplay experience for the user. Whilst the 'under the hood' stuff isn't a make or break for me, I will be slightly disappointed if the capability isn't at least PS3 level seeing as how old the tech is. It's all just rumour and speculation for now anyway, so let's wait to see what E3 has in store!

    Power isn't the highest priority but it IS important (to an extent). The Wii missed out on an untold amount of great third-party titles purely because the vast majority of developers couldn't practically invest the time and effort necessary to port their HD titles to a weaker console.

    It's also weird that so many comparisons are being made between the Wii U and the 360/PS3. Why a next-gen console is being compared to 6/7 year old systems is beyond me.

    Power isn't the highest priority but it IS important (to an extent). The Wii missed out on an untold amount of great third-party titles purely because the vast majority of developers couldn't practically invest the time and effort necessary to port their HD titles to a weaker console.

    If in two years time (a year into PS4/720 cycle) major developers find that they have to under scale games to get it to run on WiiU it will lead to the same thing that happenned to Wii. We will get gimmicky versions that look aged on release. While I have no doubt there will be some incredible first party games, if it is massively underpowered, people will buy the best looking version, leaving developers reluctant to put time and effort into a version that will not sell as well.

    I totally agree with KinGamer, the only reason I can imagine Nintendo not making a big step forward in power is because they are worried about over-pricing a la 3DS.

    I agree with Nintendo too, Gameplay over Power any day. But if a developer finds the console can't deal with what they want to show on the screen because of power issues, that's when we get a Wiipeat of the last gen. I remember Nintendo saying they had listened to developers, so I think it will be more powerful than we expect. Fingers crossed

  13. pokemaster Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 11:45

    Its not about the power for me. Sure, its nice if games look nice, but gameplay and whole host of other thing are more important than graphical prowess.
    The Wii is the least powerful of the current gen, but has sold incredibly well, and despite what others may say, has great games, with lots of variety. Xenoblade for example is a huge game, with giant landscapes, bigger than some I have seen on the 360, so it just goes to show power isn't everything.

  14. AiDeNintendude Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 13:27

    Sources close to the 'Xbox 720' project have previously stated that the next xbox will be 6 times more powerful than the Xbox 360 and 20% more powerful than the Wii U. Other sources have recently said that the next playstation - codenamed 'Orbis' - will have a rebranded but identical graphics card (NOT processor) to the one in the 'Xbox 720'.

    Basically, if we do the math and trust these sources, the Wii U won't quite be as powerful as the next xbox, but will still be a beast and will be way more powerful than the current generation. In terms of graphical power, 20% isn't very significant and I imagine would be rather unnoticeable.

  15. shadow.x Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 13:29

    The fact that they are keeping it stoosh adds to the mystique of the Wii U. Plus with all the speculation about, its being shared on a wide scale. Great for advertising and hype!

  16. 3ds234 Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 14:09

    Hope it's as powerful as xbox or ps3. :)

  17. Capt. Rosco Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 15:26

    I'd say the upcoming generation of consoles will all be around the same level power wise. The newer xbox or playstation will more than likely surpass the Wii U in the hardware, but I don't think it will make too much of a difference. If a game is being released on all 3 platforms, few companies will waste the time and money having 3 different builds of the game for the 3 consoles, they will all look pretty much he same. I'd say this means the new console generation will be judged on exclusive titles and innovation in each. The Wii U has its unique controller, the other two have yet to be seen. If I want to get a game to play in an innovative and fun way, I would buy it on the Wii U, otherwise PC would be the way to go.

  18. Magmortar963 Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 15:29

    The tech specs are good! If they were bad, Nintendo would get the announcement over with or at least tell us to get prepared. Surely they wouldn't have us waiting for a dissapointment!

  19. L_A Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 15:52

    Well, that's not a surprise, really. I don't remember Nintendo ever releasing any sort of specs for any of its consoles in the past. So why would they start?
    People will have to wait for the actual console to be released to know what's inside.

  20. paultheotherone Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 16:34

    If they follow the Wii, and sell old tech for a profit with a new interface, then it is not suprising if it is not graphics focused. But how much further can graphics be pushed? HD is only now becoming standard tv format what with the analogue signal being switched off etc, 3DTV won't be popular till it is glasses free. The extra ram is to deal with the controller(s) streaming is it not?

    Personally I am more interested in the fuctionality of the controller and what kind of online and app store experience Nintendo can offer, that is where they need to focus. And Zelda, Metroid HD of course!

    Off topic: leaked release date of the 27th November, 10 days afer my guess!

    what happened to the information leading up to e3 nintendo promised us? :?

  22. Buffalo_K Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 17:48

    While Nintendo are right in saying that it is the experience that counts, I does worry me a bit how they aren't saying anything about the WiiU's power. It has to be more powerful then any other console or tablet to date, because if it isn't, its not going to win over the hardcore gamers.

  23. PureAwesomeness Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 18:08

    'How powerful is Wii U? Nintendo speak...


    Slightly misleading title, but I knew Nintendo wouldn't give it away. Not yet.

  24. DyslexSickz Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 18:27

    teh wii u seems distinctly under-powred. It'll be as suckcessful as the wii was in the long term.

  25. ThePunnyGuy Thursday 5th Apr 2012 at 20:36

    Well, tbh, you can't really trust the whole 20% thing. While so far the sources have been reliable (though that may change), journalists writing about these rumours have no idea what they are talking about. Compare the graphics cards in the Wii U and 720 (the rumoured ones anyway), and you'll see that there is no way that 20% is even close to accurate in terms of graphical power.

  26. benjymc Friday 6th Apr 2012 at 09:27

    I think its smart what they're doing. It makes me want the Wii U even more

  27. olrodlegacy Friday 6th Apr 2012 at 19:22

    With all due respect if they don't go for power this time around they'll have penned their own suicide note. It is 2012. Simple gameplay just does not hack it any more. Consumers want graphics. The fact that Nintendo with the two Mario Galaxy games (and 3DLand) have practically re-used the same game three times shows they are lacking in gameplay ideas. This may be their only opportunity at progress.

    Although I agree that Nintendo should definitely go for a more powerful console this time, I disagree that "gameplay doesn't hack it anymore" The phenomenal success of titles such as Minecraft, Super Meat Boy, Katamari Demacy, Realm of the Mad God, The Bit-Trip series shows that games can sell very well based on their unique gameplay mechanics alone. Its nice for consoles to have decent graphical horsepower behind them, but it certainly isn't their selling point. Top end gaming PC's can be up to 900% more powerful than current gen consoles and that is no over exaggeration. The new line of graphics cards coming from AMD and NVIDIA will be one or two generations ahead of the next generation of consoles. If consumer demand for high end graphics was big enough the console market would drop drastically. But for the foreseeable future consoles will sell far more than gaming PC's because they're more accessible to the majority of gamers.

    Also, keep in mind that a games graphics and aesthetics are not the same thing. Graphics are technical rendering techniques allowing us to display images in a particular way on screen. e.g self-shadowing, normal mapping, tessellation, antialiasing, anisotropic filtering etc. but graphics don't determine how good a game looks. Aesthetics is the style of a game that sets the emotional context of the experience. If you look at the likes of Okami, Skyward Sword, Mario Galaxy, Punch-Out!! they look better than the likes of Haze. Although Haze has much more graphical power, it looks bland, generic and forgettable. A console can have the most powerful processor, GPU, have more RAM than the others, but all these do not make a game look good.

    All of you need to go to YouTube and look up the Wii U, there's a new video about it... Where a guy compares a lower graphics card/processor than the Wii U is said to have (on purpose) against the XBOX 360 and PS3 processor and graphics card (he also notes any changes to the cards for XBOX 360 and PS3 that Sony altered, so it's very factual and detailed)... it basically shows that even though the comparison for Wii U that he used was a lot lower than what the Wii U is said to use - It's still hugely powerful in comparison to XBOX 360 and Wii U.

    Even with this information though, you know that Sony and Microsoft are purpose waiting on the specs for Wii U to try to immaturely "beat" Nintendo anyway... Even so, the Wii U will still be powerful as hell and a lot cheaper than Sony or Microsoft consoles, not to mention released a heck of a lot earlier and can probably provide better gameplay than them - unless Nintendo are copied, in which case (to me) it shows how immature they are... but I hope finally Sony can change their bigoted ways and be a respectful and friendly game-industry-supporting rival - not insult Nintendo and rally fans into hardcore mode and influence kids because it's fun for them.

    What really worries me, and I think worries most Nintendo skeptics, is that Nintendo have time and time again said "Oh, no, we don't care about tech specs." It makes them sound like they've not thought anything through at all.

    Clearly, they have thought about the specs and the hardware, but what they should say is that they are 'keeping it secret so that the opposition can't plan against it.'

    However, my main problem is that from what we've seen so far, Sony have already planed against the WiiU's amazing new controller (with the controller ability of the Vita), so what I want to see is how Nintendo have made their console better enough for me to want it, over forking out for the Vita and PS3 which already have what Nintendo are advertising.

    As much as they have a reputation for amazing games, their innovation usually only lasts so long before the sheer numbers of the rival consoles games takes over. It's been this way since Sony turned their bolt-on accessory for the SNES into the PlayStation.

    What I'd like to see is how Nintendo are going to preserve their strong innovation while at the same time preserving the market lead they will obviously obtain at the beginning of the WiiU's market life, and coming out with absurd statements like 'we don't care about the tech specs', when the first thing they showed was a brand new controller, is not helping.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo, but they need to watch what their representatives say, because many potential clients and customers read into those statements a little too much.

    FOR GODS SAKE NINTENDO! Im sick of Nintendo having really great and imaginative games which nobody buys because the graphics are rubbish compared to x box and ps3, or just getting bare bones ports of other titles. I just know that the Wii U will only have marginaly better processing power than the x box and ps3, only for sony and microsoft to bring out new software once again leaving the nintendo half a generation behind on software once again. Please don't let this prediction come true.

    I wouldn't say its immature of them at all to wait to see the Wii U's specs and have a more powerful console, if anything its the logical, business smart thing to do. They have to go up against a console that is launching much earlier than their own, with guaranteed sales in the millions at launch. Nintendo have a head start sales wise, so obviously they will want to release a console to hopefully catch up with the Wii U sales as soon as possible and this won't be done by releasing a console with similar hardware a few YEARS after the Wii U. Judging from previous generations, Sony and Microsoft can't compete in the innovation department, that for me is what sets Nintendo consoles apart from the others. So, the only logical option is have a more powerful version of the previous console that can significantly beat the Wii U in terms of power. Its not a case of immature one upmanship, its the only option to compete.

  33. Riverlution Saturday 7th Apr 2012 at 22:40

    Gameplay over specs, sure.

    But higher specs make it easier to create more immersive and beautiful experiences. No one can say to me that they would prefer to play Mario Galaxy in Standard definition over High definition if given a choice (or any game, for that matter).

  34. supermariobros Sunday 8th Apr 2012 at 15:17

    I just cant wait for the Nintendo Wii U to come out! Anyone have any idea how much it is going to cost here, I heard it will be about 20,000 in Japanese currency which is equivalent to 153 but that wont be the UK price, I heard around 200, I cant be more than that because Nintendo doesn't want to make it a fortune to they? Why it looks so awesome, once I decided I'm going to get it, I started saving up immediately! So far its going good ( and will hopefully still ) and gives me time to save up for it for within the next 5 months approx when it comes out , it I manage to get it early then I could preorder or get it when comes out, Inshallah I'll get to save up enough money to get the Nintendo Wii U

    And if anyone has any idea how much it would be, even though I have those two prices mentioned above ( 153 or 200 )
    Just want other peoples thoughts or if you know of how much it will be :)

    I CANT WAIT, IT LOOKS SO AWESOME!!! I wish I'm holding it right now! Lets get ready gamers!!!

    The Wii U is so awesome and I cant wait until it comes out!!! :D

  35. lui_gui Sunday 8th Apr 2012 at 15:38

    I.e. - The WiiU is Going to be disappointing

  36. IPecksU Sunday 8th Apr 2012 at 19:27

    I don't care as long as they're at least comparable to the next microsoft and sony consoles so that wii u doesn't miss out on much

  37. linkfinity Monday 9th Apr 2012 at 15:50

    this article should have been called "how powerful is wii U? nintendo don't speak..."
    jokes aside i can see why they won't say, that's probably going to be one of the main things at E3 for them (aside from software), and as the wii has proven, graphics are not important at all, Xenoblade, monster hunter tri, twilight princess, okami, all great looking games made on a console that most would have you believe is a nes with motion controls, hogwash, most devs just don't give it enough time.

  38. tomutwit Tuesday 10th Apr 2012 at 08:35

    I heard it will cost more than 300 dollars in America! Oh dear

  39. Tams Tuesday 10th Apr 2012 at 11:22

    I doubt any of the next generation of consoles will be 'going' for power. It's still not that long ago that Sony and Microsoft were smarting over the loses they made with each console sale. In their quest for power, they'd made their consoles too expensive to sell at a profit. This is no longer the case, but I don't think they're willing to take on such a risk again. If I remember correctly, one of the main reasons the Wii was not very powerful (for HD graphics) was because HDTVs weren't very common when it was released.

    I expect the next generation of consoles to be more focused on services. Sony are pushing SEN and Microsoft are pushing Metro. Nintendo have the eShop etc. Controllers like the Wii U tablet and Kinnect (I'm not sure about Sony, not that much seems to be happening with the Move), as well as other possible new interface methods will also probably be important; used to differentiate the consoles. In terms of graphics, I think HD (720p) will be the minimum, but I don't expect much more than Full HD (1080p) as the next 'step' up from that is 2k. :shock: It would be cost prohibitive to go any higher and the change is not as dramatic from as SD (480p) was. I'm not sure about 3D. I don't really see it taking off that much (as long as it requires glasses, or at least glasses that cost a small fortune for a decent number).

    Personally, I like the mystery of not knowing. I want to be surprised and don't particularly care what does all the behind the scenes work with consoles. I'd just tinker with my PC, which is far better suited to such analysis if I wanted to. The 'experience' for the win! :) I can't wait for the Wii U! :D It'll be the first console I actually bother owning (handhelds aside). :mrgreen:

    They make a loss at initial manufacturing, but they make it up later with sales of software. Mircrosoft and Sony are larger companies that make a significant amount of profit from their other branches Microsoft through Windows, Sony through T.Vs etc. But Nintendo can't afford to risk this as all their money is made in the game industry. Both the Xbox and PlayStation 2 cost more to build than they sold for at launch. Over time, as components get cheaper, technology gets better, and economies of scale increase, the cost to manufacture usually drops until the company can turn a profit on each console sold. Sony and Mircosoft are making a profit at this stage obviously. They are Multi-Billion dollar companies and manufacturing at a loss is a risk, but its a calculated risk, they knew they would turn a profit soon, otherwise they wouldn't do it. If a console bombed it would mean the loss of lots of money and more importantly lots of jobs. They knew they would make the money back over the console's life span and through software sales. Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony are all large companies and in the end, their goal is to make money, which they all accomplish. Nintendo just go about it in a different way to the others.

    I know that they more than made up for the losses incurred during the first few years with system related sales. Either way, making a loss still isn't great, even if it yields rewards later on. That's what the markets probably think at least.

    Microsoft might be prepared to take a risk again, as they have the funds to survive a failure, but I don't think they will. They're probably much more interested in spending money on Windows Phone and creating an ecosystem (WP, W8 and Xbox). They might also not want to go to far ahead of their rivals, as the return from that might not be worth it. Why spend lots and risk a lot on a more powerful system when your rivals aren't?

    As for Sony; they continue to lose money; notable with their TVs... They could survive a failure, but Playstation is one of the few brands they have that is now helping keep them going.

    Nintendo don't really have much to fall back on, or at least nowhere near as much as even Sony. As their releases seem to be of the cycle of Sony and Mircosoft though, I don't see them having a problem.

    One of my friends (who likes to act like an idiot saying things like "nintendo's rubbish, its too babyish, it sucks) says the wii u is going to follow the same path as the wii, less focus on power, but what he cant realise is that an xbox is a cut down computer, I cant wait to rub this in his face, stats mean nothing to me (unless its a pokemon game were talking about :D) I pity him because he is a slave to "the newest in the series is the best" the wii U is his idiocy's impending DOOM :twisted: I cant wait!!!!

    But you're also missing the point that all the big third party games - COD, FIFA and WWE, just to name three, are being made shallow due to Nintendo consoles not being capable of handling them. Nobody can deny that, Bully aside, the big name multi-format titles have been abysmal on the Wii (and Gamecube, for that matter) for the past decade. That has got to end.

  44. supermariobros Saturday 14th Apr 2012 at 22:11

    I'm actually going to be excited for the games that are going to be on it, Super Mario Bros Mii, The Zelda one, and that one with the ninja stars look awesome, its internet browsing looks awesome, I think it is powerful, I know that sony will copy it with their next like they most likely do, like with ps move, moving about with it, sounds familiar, they copied the wii mote, the ps vita which came out recently, I dont here people talking about it that much. Oh yeah! I am also excited about another game that is likely to come out on the console, Imagine Paper Mario on the Wii U, I'm still playing the N64 version I think its awesome, so imagine that awesome game on an awesome console like the Wii U
    I heard the a Paper Mario game is most Likely to come out on the Wii U, and heres how, look back at the Paper Mario series, The previous three Nintendo consoles have had a Paper Mario game, the N64 had Paper Mario, the GameCube had The thousand Year Door and the Wii has Super Paper Mario, so its most likely that there will be one on the Wii U
    I hope it'll be like this, pretty much like the Zelda tech demo, you have nothing on the screen, just the game, and on the controller however is where you can view your menu, HP, FP, BP and Badges. So is there is going to be a Paper Mario game on the Wii U ( Which there most likely will be Inshallah ) lets just say, that It'll be part of my library of games :-D

    I am sooooooo excited :-D

    Click on this link to find out the tech specs for Wii U: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii_U#Tech ... ifications

    I even found out that the Wii U's CPU is based on one found in a supercomputer so that must mean the Wii U is more powerful than the Wii.

    Either way I'm intrested to see what 1st and 3rd party games are coming to Wii U and it's not long to go untill E3 2012 which is when we will find out more about the Wii U.
