Wii U - so far so good

The Wii U is showing developers what it's got. They have access to a dev kit and so far the console is performing on par with the rest. At least according to Marvin Donald from Vigil.

"So far the [Wii U] hardware's been on par with what we have with the current generations. Based on what I understand, the resolution and textures and polycounts and all that stuff, we're not going to being doing anything to up-res the game, but we'll take advantage of the controller for sure."
So, so far they have been using it like a Xbox or a PS3. No hint of how powerful it really is.

I wonder if it is really that big of a deal. Maybe Nintendo is aiming to stay a generation behind again in favor of the controller.

Not that it matters. Nintendo has enough money to screw up for about 40 years.

Nintendo Magazine:
"Buried in reams of financial data is the revelation that Nintendo have 812.8 billion Yen (£6.7/$10.5 billion) in the bank - enough for it to take a 20 billion Yen loss (£163/$257 million) every year until 2052. Then there's almost 469 billion Yen (£3.8/$6.0 billion) held in premises, equipment and investments. When that runs out - we're in the year 2075 by this point - they've got some of the most valuable intellectual property in gaming to sell off before the company goes out of business."
So yeah... It's not going the Sega way anytime soon.
