Analyst Firm Insists that Wii U is Outdated

on June 13, 2011 8:00 PM

Isn’t it interesting that many gamers are concerned about whether or not the Wii U will be as powerful as the Xbox 360 or PS3 when the Wii U doesn’t come out until next year and the youngest of the current HD consoles will be six years old by then? I don’t know if that makes me angry with Nintendo or feel sorry for them, but probably not the latter since people will buy it anyway. What I do know is that analyst firm Wedbush Morgan has practically slapped Nintendo by commenting that their next gen console is “two years too late”. They continued mercilessly, saying:

“As Nintendo did not provide any specifics around the new console‚Äôs power or pricing, we are assuming that the Wii U is unlikely to provide greater power than the current HD consoles”

I am laughing so hard as I type this. Wedbush went on to say how Nintendo looks to capitalize on beating Sony and MS to the next console generation, though I have to say that it probably won’t be too significant if it turns out that the Wii U is actually much weaker than the PS3 and Xbox 360. I share the skepticism about its hardware, and knowing Nintendo’s proclivity for gimmicks, I also know that it won’t matter at all to the console’s sales.
