    WII U 'effectively' an XBOX 360, says microsoft

    Studios boss Phil Spencer says Nintendo's upcoming console is on par with graphical capability of current gen, believes Pro Controller will lead to more Xbox 360 ports.

    This holiday season, Nintendo will be the first of the Big Three to release next-generation hardware in the form of the Wii U. But according to comments from Microsoft's Phil Spencer to GamesIndustry International, the Wii U is only on par with current-generation consoles, like the Xbox 360.
    The Wii U is just as powerful as an Xbox 360, says Microsoft.

    The Wii U is just as powerful as an Xbox 360, says Microsoft.

    "I think their Pro Controller makes a lot of sense with the platform they've built," he said. They are building a platform that is effectively a 360 when you think of graphical capability."

    Nintendo announced the Wii U Pro Controller during a pre-E3 media event last month. This controller is similar in form factor to the Xbox 360's, which Spencer believes will make the Wii U a hotspot for Xbox 360 ports.

    "Now they are really making an on-ramp for the back catalog of games that are on 360. It is easy for those games to move over to the Wii U. They've moved the buttons around, and they've made a controller that feels familiar for 360 gamers, so I get why they are putting those pieces together," he said.

    This is not the first time it has been suggested that the Wii U will lag behind future consoles from Microsoft and Sony. Last month, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said the Wii U was in a generation of its own. And before that, a GameSpot survey found that the next Xbox and PlayStation 4 already have a leg up on the Wii U.

    The Wii U is due out worldwide this holiday season, but Nintendo has yet to announce a price or a release date for the console. Speculation regarding the platform's release window has ranged from November to December, and Nintendo has promised a "reasonable" price for the console.

    hhehe.. like sa gisulti sa crytek.. dili possible ang cryengine sa mga consoles kay dili ingana ka power.. pero pag gawas sa cryengine 3 didto sila ni sulti nga kaya diay ng murag midrange settings sa pc ang mga current gen consoles.. hehe dili pud ko ko tup na on par lang since sa mga demos akong nakita naa man jud ayus nga makita. siguro kung mag gawas ang next gen in terms of raw power kay naa lang in between ang wii u sa current and nextgen. pero tama pud tanan speculations pa lang since wala pa na release ang console and wala pay official word from nintendo. why kelangan man maging suprr secret btw?haha

    dghan mnpud mi-depensa sa Wii U nga kusgan gyud xa'g innards. kaingun lng P. Spencer tali ky naay non-standard nga controller ag Wii U nga mura design sa Xbox 360.

    On what I've seen, ag GPU sa Wii U is good enough. ever saw those ZombiU gameplay videos?

    There's also the argument nga ag Unreal Engine 4 ky di daw pra sa Wii U. which shouln't be a big problem since ingun ag Epic nga down-scalable ag engine nila. UE4 can be run on tablets and phones so I don't really see a problem on it for the Wii U...

    Also, ag klaro nga ginareklamo nila ky ag clock speed daw sa Wii U ky hinay. Pero kung huna2-on, di mn jd sa clock speed nka-base ang kakusgan sa usa ka system db? eg., maskusgan ang 2.0Ghz nga dual core maski sa 3.2Ghz nga pentium 4.
