Wii U will be more powerful than Xbox 360 and PS3 claims 5th Cell

As debate continues over the performance of Nintendo’s next console, Jeremiah Slaczka, CEO of Scribblenauts‘ development team, 5th Cell, tells Game Informer in their latest issue that the Wii U is “definitely more powerful than [the] Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.” This is great news for Nintendo fans but doesn’t come at all as a surprise considering the Xbox 360 is nearly seven years old and has by many standards become outdated along with its rival console from Sony.

However, no matter how powerful the console, players may stay clear while awaiting the competition from Sony and Microsoft. Although, in Nintendo’s favour, Slash Gear writes that “as long as the games are good then the hardware shouldn’t matter.”

This is good news for Nintendo who have been lagging behind in TV console hardware; let’s just hope their spirits aren’t dampened with the release of the next-generation consoles from their competition.
