Nintendo Wii Matches the Power of the Original Xbox
According to a FIFA producer, the Nintendo Wii matches up to the original Xbox as far as power goes. Of course the Wii is an easy system to develop code for, but matching up to the power of a last generation system isn’t exactly a big deal in my opinion. People need to keep in mind that the Wii is great simply because it is original. That originality could wear off one day, but certainly doesn’t look like it’s slowing down any time soon. I honestly wish people would stop comparing the Wii’s actual system details to Sony and Microsoft’ systems. Honestly, the Wii cannot compete on a hardware level and Nintendo knows it. The point of the article is that the Wii is pretty much what the original Xbox was. Is that really the point we need to care about? Probably not.
FIFA producer Tim Tschirner has said that he believes the Nintendo Wii matches up to the first in terms of power.
Tschirner’s comments came in an exclusive interview with GamesIndustry.biz’s sister site, Eurogamer.net
“It’s about as powerful as the original Xbox,” he said. “The video hardware unfortunately is not as powerful. There’s just a couple of key things that you can do on Xbox like shaders which you just cannot do on the Wii… Overall though it’s pretty much what the original Xbox was.”
