Wii vs Xbox: the spec truth
Nevermind that Xbox, we’re talkin’ Xbox 1 here, the behemoth. The Duke-box 180. In another interview concerning Fifa 08 Wii, EA tells Eurogamer Wii’s hardware muscle nearly flexes to the point of the original Xbox’s 20-inch pyhtons, but jiggles too much.
Group producer Tim Tschirner was asked his thoughts on the Wii’s horsepower. Tschirner said that the console is “about as powerful as the original Xbox,” though noting that the video hardware “unfortunately is not as powerful.”
Shaders were cited as an issue.
That’s not even new gen. Oh well, Nintendo’ll live. They got money in the bank, shawty. Fuck a shader.
