Can someone for the love of god explain to the Nintendo fans what GPU computing is? They all seem to believe that the Wii U has a Larrabee in it!
Is there a knowledgeable PC gamer that is owner of a site and that can write an article explaining this to the poor fools? Because now even sites like ZeldaInformer.com are jumping in and confusing people even more about what GPGPU really is by calling the GPU on the Wii U a GPGPU.
I never thought gaming websites were this misinformed to be honest, from now on I'll be more on guard of what I read on this site. I always thought that since they had a site and submitted articles on N4G that they actually knew what they were talking about but it seems that most of them are just as clueless as the average gamer.
Can't wait for E3 2013 where once more real next gen will be shown and the WiiUnderpowered will get washed down ports like the Wii got them. The lovely COD on Wii bahahaha
Oi, Sony Fanboy, we've been playing Real Next Gen on PC Master Race for a while now. Get with the program.
Oh yes that is why we are talking about consoles. A thing that plays games, released and isn't changed nor upgraded during its lifetime. There are basically two choices: 1. Put ancient stuff in it at start and sell it with profit from launch pretty much or 2. Put in high tech hardware, sell it with a slight loss and earn back on games/online.
A console just takes an investment of about 300 to 400 bucks. A good gaming rig costs more than that if you want to stay ahead like you claim, every 1 or 2 year more RAM, another GPU etc.
If you want to compare apples and pears, enjoy. Seems like the PC Master Race has down syndrome.
I anticipate the day you get banned. You're quick to personally insult people and the mods don't like that.
But anyway, you post in your own post "True next gen". Already screaming idiotic fanboy, because next gen doesn't start with graphics, it starts with the next iteration of console released. Oh, what's that? You hate all things Nintendo and are blinded by your own fanboy drivel? "TRUE NEXT GEN" is a leap in graphics to you? Oh okay, so how about the fact that PCs have graphical capabilities many generations beyond what consoles can do, and possibly even future consoles can do (it's funny, you don't even know the specs of any of the upcoming consoles, yet you claim it's "True next gen".
But wait a second, PCs don't count now? So wait, what does count? I"m guessing your inane view on console generations only counts, is that right? I understand Sony fanboys are crazy, but stop making the stereotype even worse for yourself. Your delusion is just boring now.
OH also I forgot to mention, everything you've posted about the parts, about what you think is upgrading well, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Does anyone think Nutsack is Jmare by any chance? Did Jmare hate Nintendo consoles? If it's Jmare I can wholly forgive his posts.
Next gen should be a jump in hardware CPU/GPU big enough to at least get new steps in games too. We saw this with last gen XBOX/PS2 to this gen 360/PS3. Because of the jump in power of the hardware, games got better too. Better physics, environments that got interactive/destructible (more so than just a game like Black last gen) etc etc.
What Nintendo did, starting with their Wii, was staying in the 480p era or better said last gen, and adding a motion controller that didn't change that much in their games. The main action and the good games were still played with buttons mainly. Not next gen. If they'd released the Wiimote for the Gamecube, we'd had pretty much the same kind of games.
Same story for WiiUnderpowered, it gives games on consoles that are the same as on PS360. Selling on yet more a gimmick controller. So no, true next gen isn't just the shiny graphics and resolution, it is about the power that is there for better physics, more enemies on screen, more intensive gameplay because of that and such. Basically being able to make better games. Where developers get CHALLENGED to use that hardware. ANd not just make another clone of the same games. Heck, this is why Nintendo keeps copying the same games with the same gameplay over and over on the consoles. New Super Mario Bros on Wii, basically the same game on WiiUnderpowered. It is a straight clone.
Furthermore, getting a console that just upgrades to this gens PS360 in power, automatically makes it less futureproof. It means that when real next gen is here, announced at E3 2013 with PSOrbis/Xbox 8, the WIiUnderpowered will once more get the weak ports the Wii got this gen. I don't know about you, but once more it'll position itself just being good for the 1st party games of Nintendo only.
Why consoles are different from PC's is because of the fixed hardware. If you call on PC's beating consoles and a master race, then yes you compare the wrong stuff with each other. It is just as stupid as comparing tablets/phones with dedicated handheld consoles like 3DS and PSVita. They are different beasts, do different things, play different games. Like on the touch devices there are hardly real games with intense gameplay. In that view, yes if you try to get in a PC being more powerful as it is constantly upgradable... DUH.
It is logic to compare the consoles, compare the handhelds, compare the touchdevices. If you can't understand that, keep comparing apples and pears. Sony fanboy? hahaha gotta love N4G users. I own two 360's, two PS3's, a Wii, PSP's and a PSVita this gen. I dislike Nintendo's steps they took after the N64/Gamecube. It is funny how people make wrong conclusions.
And Sherlock, you seem closeminded. No clue who Jmare is, but the way you speak you are probably as bad as that guy.
