Maybe the Wii U isn't so bad after all.
GamingBolt's interview with Frozenbyte Games revealed a healthy amount of positivity about the Wii U's hardware, not only limited to its current performance but its potential as well. When asked about whether or not the Wii U's CPU was a hindrance during the porting of Trine 2, the studio responded:
They continued with some additional insight:
Nintendo has never been about pushing hardware, and it's proven time and time again that it doesn't worry about trends. On one hand it's harmful (i.e. no achievements, cross game chat, etc.), but on the other hand you can always expect a unique experience on a Nintendo console. Even then, developers have seen enough from the Wii U to say it's more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3—which isn't much of a feat—and has a GamePad that can do more for gaming franchises than simply improving the visual experience.
Concerns over the Wii U falling tragically behind once Microsoft, Valve, and Sony enter the new generation are still valid, but for now the Wii U confidently sits at the top of the totem pole.
