    Develop is reporting that the Wii U will be roughly twice as powerful as the Xbox 360. Nintendo's next generation hardware will be roughly twice as powerful as Microsoft's current system the Xbox 360...

    Missing a 0?

    Denote by y Xbox 360's performance
    Denote by x Xbox 720's performance
    Denote by w Wii U's performance

    If the Wii U is "twice as powerful as the 360", then:

    w = 2y

    If the Xbox 720 is ''six times as powerful" as the Xbox 360, then:

    x = 6y

    Therefore, the Xbox 720 must be thrice (3 times) as powerful as the Wii U, i.e. 200% more powerful:

    x = 3(2y) = 3w

    2 times, 3 times ... never mind for me.

    I will wait for it and then buy it. I really like Nintendo consoles, and currently have Wii.

    I am a PC gamer (an will always be), so Nintendo consoles is just a nice addition for it (primarily for Zelda games and some other casual games...)

    God forbid they actually put out a console that can do high quality graphics. I'll probably buy a few years after it comes out. I pretty much only use them for Zelda games. The wii's collection of games was really disappointing imho.

    Twice as powerful as the 360? So that makes it good enough to run games from 2005 at 576p-720p (0-2xAA, 0xAF) while sustaining 40fps.

    I played this on a friends WII,i still think the best mario kart game designed regarding track design and AI is the original Snes version,all other versions are lame in comparison,battlekart was fun on the N64 butthe AI on N64 was appalling,still didnt stop me and a friend at the time go 200 hundred battles on battlekart in our first sitting...hence Burnout,never played the N64 version again after this,i still think the Snes version has stood the test of time out of all versions,it has the best gameplay:)

    This is what i dont understand. An RV770 based chip should be several times better than the GPU of the xbox 360. And thats what supposedly the Wii U is packing.

    Unless that is, they're talking bout CPU power. But why Nintendo would pair a RV770 with such a weak CPU? (two times as powerfull as a 360 is nothing these days).

    yeah..consoles are for the kids that dont know any better for the most part..and this generation is REALLY going to prove that...honestly..I dont know anyone in my group of friends thats over 30 that has a console...theyve ALL come to see the light and realize that consoles, while they have their place...are at the bottom of the barrel...sure they have ease of use..but so does a toilet :)
