Wii U Enters Market in 2012

The new console from Nintendo, Wii U, is scheduled to hit the market in in Japan, Europe and the United States before the end of 2012, confirms Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. Another hint about the Wii U launch date was made recently by US boss Reggie Fils-Aime who said "Wii U will launch some time between E3 - which is in June - at the end of the year so essentially the second half of the year."

In related news, the Wii U console is going to have hardware that's twice as powerful as the current Xbox 360 system, according to an unnamed source from the industry giant.

Yesterday, however, we did learn that Microsoft may be able to tackle this. There were reports that the next-gen Xbox console is going to be powered by a 2011 Radeon 6000 series graphics card, "sources close to the project" have said.

Only 2x faster which means that it's sporting a Gpu that about the same as a AMD 4670..... But the main thing we need to know is how much memory does it have for system and video use because those are key.

I've heard the Xbox 720 will also have a Six-Core CPU and 2GB of RAM.

all in all, i think this will mean that games get twice as nice looking, and now only last 4 hours on average, and of coure there will be some justification made as to why they also have to cost $20 more now...

It's just another Nintendo unit. Does that mean that Netflix will look better on it? The only reason I got a Wii for my wife is so that we could watch Netflix on our big plasma TV upstairs, because the PS3 and the XBox 360 and my PC are in my man cave in the basement because that's where the real gaming takes place.

too little too late, and netflix doesn't matter for Europeans (because it doesn't exist)
because paying for streaming video @1080P@1mbps is only viewable for blind people.
