Well I can imagine:
Sony or MS could have set up a "neutral" game studio just to get their hands on their competitor's hardware. There is probably a good reason why Nintendo does not give each developer the same unit. Probably the most trusted ones get the latest kits. Others might get old kits just to throw the competition off.

And that brings me to another thought. What if the WiiU really is a beast, in the same ballpark of Durango and PS4. But developer bias cant see past the reality of this fact. What I mean is, I can see a studio favoring a particular company, getting everything out of their machine, while with the others, they simply half-ass it and finds excuses to claim that the competition's machine has bottlenecks, or various other issues that hamper similar or better results.

EA and Ubisoft are going to have conferences first day, I believe. I do think they're going to show whatever games they have in development for the Wii U, so they don't have to waste Nintendo's E3 conference time showing their titles.

The first indicator that speaks for a moderate spec sheet instead of a hardware beast is the price.

Second thing that will propably the best indicator is Nintendos 1st and 2nd party offering. I donīt trust ANY 3rd party to get anything significantly better than current gen out of the box.

And last but not least, Nintendo has the power to make great looking games weaker hardware. Mario Galaxy 1/2 as a prime example.

I seriously doubt it. I think Nintendo initially wants to control how the tablet controller gets presented for each big game that it will be on. I can imagine Nintendo investing with third parties on their marketing to not include WiiU versions of games with the current gen. The WiiU must stand out as much as possible. It must take distance from the 360 and PS3 graphically, how the controls work, and online.

If one company tries that half-assing stunt with Nintendo's hardware, they run the risk of another company outshining them in their own graphical effort. Either that, or they run the risk of being called-out as bullshitters.

But really.. nothing would surprise me at this point - except for the Wii U being a beast in the same fold as the Durango. :)

Oh I believe that too. I don't see EA or Ubisoft demoing the Wii U tablet at all. I just expect them to finally announce titles for it and show trailers.

Emulators like Dolphin show that you don't necessarily need beastly hardware to make Nintendo software look (even more) amazing. The primary thing it does to beautify these games is to render them at higher resolutions, and WiiU being 1080p is largely all that will be needed to make their games shine.

Thats true, but I recall the base model of the 360 was 299 and the Wii was 249.
At face value one would say that they were pretty close spec wise and far from the PS3 at 599. So we cant count out price that is set for demand, and/or subsidizing the hardware.

That goes without saying. However, for some reason fanboys do not take Nintendo's offering as indicators of the console's true power. And this could be the cartoony nature of many of their games. Of course, we have not seen Nintendo games in HD, and we dont know what direction Nintendo will go to capture the CoD market

If we're going to be able to run games from USB drives, then wouldn't that be a bit of a problem for titles that rely on data constantly being streamed into the levels like GTA? Even the best USB 2.0 drives are just under the speed of the 360's DVD drive, after all. While that might be okay for 360 games, when you increase the complexity of the levels and graphics, I'd think it would start to get in the way.

I'm wondering if they have some kind of big cache solution in place. I don't know if that means having to install games onto the internal SDD drive or what, but there has to be some way to get around this obvious speed issue. Could that be something the large amount of system RAM would be handling? Does anyone have any ideas how this is going to work?

Yup. That tells me all I need to know.

After the past decade, I'm done trusting in or hoping for the "headliner" titles from third parties. To me, anything of this nature from a third-party that actually does end-up on a Nintendo system is a pleasant surprise and/or a bonus.

I find it a bit problematic as well. I think the best course of action would be to brand USB 3.0 HDDs with the Wii U logo.

Any time I read "at this time" from a developer about an unreleased console, I instantly believe they're under NDA.

Not sure what the reason is for all the negativity about this quote.

Sounds very expensive just to all the info on WiiU

Nintendo owns a bit of Silicon Knights, I'm sure MS owns part of a few 3rd parties out there as well but does not mean they share devkit info so easily when NDAs are signed with these things

Question is, what happens if Sony and/or MS shows a tech demo of an uncoming controller of their own with a touch screen of some sort and graphics waaay past what the WiiU can handle the day before? :/ I don't think it will happen, but I definitely won't rule it out. They're all sneaky.

Lol I did some stealth editing. 3.0 would be a godsend though. Nintendo needs it.

For more information:

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unive..._Bus#section_8

Typical hi-speed USB hard drives can be written to at rates around 25–30 MB/s, and read from at rates of 30–42 MB/s, according to routine testing done by CNet.[69] This is 70% of the total bandwidth available.

Capcom's comments make it sound like they're working on a Wii U version but it probably won't be ready for launch. They've already said that they had to cut the dev time in order to move the date up by over a month, so the studio is already under a good deal of pressure just based on that.

Those are theoretical figures. In real life it's closer to 25 or 30. But yeah, you guys were right about it being faster than a DVD drive.

Still, the Wii U's Blu-ray-ish drive is almost certainly going to be much faster than whatever USB 2.0 drive you've got. That's really the issue at hand here.

Xbox 360 DVD is 5X to 12X, I guess depending on where on the DVD the data is.

That translates to 6.925 MB/s to 16.62 MB/s. Note that this is not "real world performance" but is what should be achievable generally.

External hard drive transfer rates five years ago in real-world tests varied wildly but could on some models average at just under 30 MB/s.

The peak transfer rate (including data and control) of USB 2.0 is 60 MB/s, so the upper limit won't go wildly higher than what you saw in that aforelinked test, but I guess there might be drives with ~45 MB/s average rates in more recent times, if you'd care to look more aggressively than I did. I don't know what the typical speed for USB 2.0 is.

This may very well be a limiting factor on the Wii U, but the original assertion of USB 2.0 being slower than the Xbox 360 DVD is certifiably false.

I have no direct facts to back up any of this speculation, only historical cases of corporate espionage. But if we look past the veneer of these companies as simply making our beloved video games... Like with Disney behind their cute mouse, these people mean business. And they play for keeps.

Megaliths like Sony and MS didnt get into the video game business because they wanted to make children and game enthusiasts happy all over the world, they got into the business because it is BIG business. All three probably use their resources and wealth to keep tabs on one and other. And some may use dirtier tactics than others. We know that both Sony and MS have been fighting to dominate the living room space. They spent a lot of money doing so. When you are spending that kind of money, you dont leave anything to chance. This will be round three. And we are already seeing that Sony suffering. If the PS4 doesnt do well, what will happen to Sony as a company?

I think Nintendo played it very smart. They basically rope-a-doped Sony and MS. Up until the Wii was officially announced, everyone expected an HD machine.

I hope that's the case. I can always buy the PC version (RE 5 on PC was quite pretty) but I'd rather have a Wii U version. One way or the other, both versions will appear later on the market.

Smash Bros trailer with new characters and some jaw dropping lighting effects for a 2D fighter. F-Zero with Wii-mote controls similar to Excite Truck, a locked 60fps, amazingly detailed tracks and vehicles, online competition at 60fps.

Same here. I expect the goods, and we better get the goods.

Or only the two in the back? Or front?
Will that confuse the average consumer?
