The time is finally here, and that is a new generation of games consoles and the jury is till out as to which of the three is the best. We know most gamers have their own opinion on this and rightly so, but for those who were thinking that the Wii U is already out of contention to be a truly great machine because PS4 and Xbox One sales have dwarfed Nintendo’s, then think again.
Wii U vs. Xbox One, PS4 specs — The easiest way to see how these machines compare and what they are capable of is by looking at their specs, although you need to dig a little deeper than that. This informative guide has dissected these three consoles in terms of their hardware, online features, user interface, and even what bundles are available.
By studying this PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One comparison chart will allow you to come to your own conclusion as to which of the three consoles wins out. However, we know that it is far more than these features, as you have to take in so many other factors into consideration, such as choice of games, entertainment features and real-world graphics rather than reading a spec sheet.
CVG agree that the Wii U lags in terms of performance, but the PS4 and Xbox One are still in their infancy and so will take a while to build-up their new ecosystems. Nintendo’s latest console has been around for 12 months now, which means a greater choice of games, and also a lower price.
However, it is only a matter of time before Microsoft and Sony catch up in terms of more choice, but it’s not going to happen over night. There are still some great PS4 and Xbox One titles to come but are they enough to tempt you into buying a next-gen console — can we still call them that now?
Things are not looking too good for Nintendo though because they have already admitted that they have failed us with the Wii U, although some killer titles are planned for 2014 and should help to bolster sales.
Whatever happens, there is still no getting around the fact that Wii U worldwide sales are just 3.91 million, and with the PS4 and Xbox One selling out everywhere, no doubt they have already exceeded this number.
Do you think that 2014 will be a two-way battle between the PS4 and the Xbox One, or should we not count the Wii U out just yet?
