However, if it gets ports they may be shoddy. We shall see. Although I absolutely despise the Wii, the Wii U may be compelling if the controller is not a significant hindrance. Next few years will be fun.
Of course consoles that launch 2 years later are going to be faster. They can't be that much faster though. Maybe 5 times, if that. Lets even give them the benefit of the doubt and say 10 times... PCs today are more than 10 times faster than PS3/360, does anything on PC look that much better than GoW3 or Uncharted 3? Not really.
