EA: Wii U can do anything the PS3 and 360 can do

EA have been quite vocal about their support of Nintendo’s next home console but their faith in the Wii U has been increased even further now that they have received the new dev kits. Vice president of EA Sports, Andrew Wilson told the gaming website Eurogamer that they can do “anything” on the Wii U that they can do on the PS3 or 360.

“The short answer is yes [we have a better idea of Wii U’s power]; the longer answer is not quite,” said Wilson. “As every new piece of hardware and every new development library comes through we get a greater understanding of the power. With our early research we had been very happy with the output of the box and we expect that that will only go up moving forward.”

“There are added challenges for us as developers when you think about rendering on two screens and what that might mean, but we’re looking forward to that challenge. It’s still moving,” he added, “but I think we’ll be able to do anything that we can do on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on the Wii U.”

    Not really good news since its saying with their latest kit its just now able to do everything that they can do and their 4 years + old I would prefer them saying its more powerful instead of saying its equal.

    The challenge for Nintendo and Wii-U will not be to achieve anything the PS3 & 360 can do,but to do it considerably BETTER.Unless it’s some kind of NDA (Non-Disclosure agreement) and since the dev kits are not finalised yet it seems ,there’s still.Achieve what your competitors did 5-6 years ago hardware-wise isn’t going to impress anyone these days.But i’ll hold my judgment (and worries) until i see the final hardware.

    have u noticed 3rd partys cannot talk wiiu with out bigging up the HD twins its like they think we must not hurt the fanboys feelings its so sad when talking wiiu please stick to the subject matter screw ps3 lol…it can do far far more EA stop sucking up to other formats

    wii remote plus and wiiu pad are unmatched by ps3 and x360 and the power will also be way higher then ad the backward compatability

    • They’re not ‘bigging them up’ what other consoles can they compare it to so that people can get an idea of what it can do.

      And anyway, he said it can do anything the PS3 and 360 but he didn’t specify whether it can do more or not.

    They don’t need the two screens at the same time…
