    its cool everyone can't know everything, i wouldn't know most of that if i didn't have a degree in computer science....

    anyway, speculation aside nintendo has kept the exact specs from being known so until then there is no way to really tell how powerful the system will be exactly

    but back to the speculation, i'd say it will actually be close to the 360 in terms of graphics. heres my reason: the price difference is about that between the high end and almost high end graphics cards from any given company currently available, ati for example has the x1800 and 1900 (high end) available for $450-600, the next step down x1600 retails for about $300

    the differences are minimal are mostly speed related, the graphics look almost the same between the two cards except for certain bells and whistles (this is where the 360 and esp. the ps3 will outstrip the wii) supported by the more costly cards

    Apparently a developer has leaked the specs for the Wii's CPU and GPU according to http://revolution.ign.com/articles/699/699118p1.html
    In this they seem to believe that the Wii will have slightly less horsepower then the origional xbox. Im not sure if i believe it entirely. The controlers given to developers wern't the same as the real ones (having wires and all) so i spose it is possible that nintendo diddn't send the real console either...
    To me it seems unlikely that the Wii will be up to the ps3 and 360 in power though, if it was wouldn't nintendo of anounced it eairlier to sell convert more people to the Wii instead of letting them go out and buy 360s?
    What do you call a button masher on the Wii?

    That is really good to heard becasue I was unsure of how powerfull it was going to be but it is awsome that it will be up to battle the xbox 360 in power.

    oh buy the way i have no idea what i just typed and what it means
    Actually, the NES was 8-bit (hence 8-bit theatre), the SNES was 16-bit. Sony and Saturn were 32-bit, but Nintendo jumped to 64-bit with N64. If I remember correctly...


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    And the gamecube has a 64-bit processor, but it still technically outperforms the ps2 because of its gpu and processor architecture

    And its also well designed compared to the PS2. Just coz it has lower numbers in one aspect of its hardware specs in comparision to other consoles doesn't mean that it sucks as most people like to see that way nowdays... \/\/

    OMFG! The PS2 has DVD reading and its really nifty and has best graphics blah blah blah...

    Hey man! Look at my XBOX man! Its really cool and has a better CPU than the G4ycube! And it also has a DVD player in it and better games in it such as Halo, TimeSplitters etc which are way cooler than those kiddy mario games that come out with the G4ycube!!!

    You know what would be awesome? If we got nearer to the release date and Nintendo released a statement saying "You know when we said we weren't focussing on graphics? We may have lied just a little bit " and then released the real specs on the Wii which were like double what they are now. I know this is wishful thinking but really, everyones like "This is as good as it gets because Nintendo said so" ... well ...surely they then have the right to change whatever statement they want right? Just saying it would be kickass and annoy the hell out of Sony and Microsoft.

    [EDIT] Wasn't this article released in May? Could still be relevant I know but that IS a while...
