Wii U Won't 'Dramatically Outperform' Current Competition

By Mark

There's been a lot of rumours recently as to whether or not the entry of the Wii U will force Microsoft and Sony to release new hardware as well or at least force them to speed up with their 'next gen' schedule.

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto has somewhat quelled these however when speaking to GameSpot. He states, regarding balance between price and technology, that:
"when you look at what we're trying to do this time, which is I think maybe to a certain degree somewhat reckless, because we're trying to include this somewhat kind of tablet-like device - this controller with the screen. We're trying to do that by finding the right balance between the CPU and the GPU, the graphics processor, and bringing all of that together with the ability to take advantage of the HD capabilities of the system, and wanting to do the most that we can on that front as well."
In reference to competitors he said:
"We're very sensitive, of course, to trying to do all of this at an appropriate price. So I don't know that we would be able to sit here and say that it's going to necessarily dramatically outperform the systems that are out now. It's part of the balance that we strike in terms of trying to find entertainment that is new and unique."
Regardless of whether or not the console has the ability to 'outperform' the 360/PS3, things are looking good for Nintendo as they have again brought a different perspective to the playing of games and even landed strong third party support this time.

As for Nintendo's actual price plan, there has been very little said other than the fact that it's unlikely to be 'cheap', whenever anything does roll out regarding price we'll be sure to let you know.
