Wii U "On Par" With 360, PS3 (So Far) Says Darksiders Developer

While Nintendo has yet to release the full specs for its upcoming Wii U, you can guess by its launch lineup that its capabilities are probably in line with the Xbox 360 and PS3, something Vigil Games are now backing up.

"So far the [Wii U] hardware's been on par with what we have with the current generations," Vigil's Marvin Donald told Game Reactor.

"Based on what I understand, the resolution and textures and polycounts and all that stuff, we're not going to being doing anything to up-res the game, but we'll take advantage of the controller for sure."

Remember he says "so far" there, so while early dev kits for a launch title might not push the system to its limits, there might still be room under the hood for the Wii U to run games at a clearly higher level than the consoles of today.
