The Wii U was one of the most talked about launches in the gaming console space during 2012, but then things got quieter once it did come out. Even though the Wii U has a slower processor than its competitors like the Xbox 360 and the PS3, don’t get too disheartened. In terms of graphics, this baby’s got a much more powerful GPU made by AMD.
Here are a few screenshots from the Wii U screen that show its performance:
The one strong point though lies in Nintendo’s inclusion of a tablet game controller element as well as asynchronous gameplay capabilities in the Wii U. However, don’t expect the Wii U to run as smooth when it comes to playing multiplayer games on a large screen TV. The console just isn’t as powerful to handle so many devices. But at $349, we’d say it makes for quite a steal, especially for single player games, while the Xbox 360 and PS3 cost $399 and $599 respectively.
