After everything I've read on the internet concerning some very valid complaints and criticisms of the Wii-U, I have to state that I'm not particularly moved or impressed by this system in any positive way so far. For me, this thing might actually be worse than the Wii. That's saying a lot.
Ugh, just walked by a premium one in wal mart lol. Dayum this is killing me!
Too bad I payed a damn bill with the refund lol. I coulda picked it up.
Wii U's limited technology might lead to Nintendo's new console having a shorter lifespan when the Xbox 720 and PS4 arrive.

Nintendo’s Wii U has come under a lot of fire over the last few days with many early adopters in the US claiming that the processing power inside isn’t actually up to much.
Even Metro: Last Light's developers have described the Wii U’s CPU as 'horrible’ and ‘slow’ and backing up these claims is DICE’s lead designer, Gustav Halling.
Talking on Twitter, Halling spoke candidly about Nintendo’s Wii U and its supposed lack of power.
“I don't actually know what makes it slow, but enough "tech" people I trust in world are saying the same things.”
“GPU and ram is nice to have shaders/textures loaded. Physics and gameplay run on CPU mostly so player count is affected etc.”
Speaking over Twitter, Halling confirmed that many developers were talking about the Wii U as a console that might not have the processing legs to compete in the long term and when the Xbox 720 and PS4 arrive.
“This is also what I been hearing within the industry, to bad since it will shorten its life a lot when new gen. starts.”
I have been playing AC3 on the Wii U, and I see nothing that points to a slow cpu, gpu, or ram. The game runs so damn smooth and looks amazing. The more I use the Wii U, the more I enjoy it. If this came out in 2006, The Wii U would have been the #1 of this generation. A damn shame Nintendo can not get with the times...
But the opera house was said to be a bit lowball on the performance but nothing to write home about.

All a little confusing as I know the difference between the PS3 & 360 versions on how it fits inbetween with the problems it does have that I'm not aware the others don't
Or is a performance thing which is unnoticeable?

I think it's just easiest to say this is not the performance we would expect. Nuff said.
I wasn't expecting miracles, but I was expecting something that could easily handle current gen game at a canter.

Since i can't post new threads i'll put this here.
It's a teardown of the WiiU, slow CPU seems to be confirmed.
GPU seems to be on the level of a Radeon 47xx.
Did you just say 47xx?
