Developers who've got their hands on the Nintendo Wii U have revealed that the console isn't as capable as existing platforms, especially in terms of graphical power.

"No, it's not up to the same level as the PS3 or the 360," one developer said of Nintendo's first high definition home console. When asked further, the developer stated "the graphics are just not as powerful."

Many believed the Nintendo Wii U would be more powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360, but another developer again echoed the same sentiment. "Sure, some things are better, mostly as a result of it being a more modern design. But overall the Wii U just can't quite keep up."

More is expected to be released on the Nintendo Wii U at this year's E3, with Nintendo not releasing any technical specifications yet. It's due to release towards the end of this year and will see some stronger third-party titles such as Darksiders 2 appearing.
