There's been a lot of debate and speculation on how games on Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console will look compared to the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Some rumors claim that the Wii U either matches or is slightly ahead of Sony and Microsoft's current consoles in terms of its hardware specs. Now Eurogamer.net reports on claims from Gearbox Software that the Wii U version of its upcoming movie-based shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines is in fact better visually than other consoles.
Gearbox's senior producer Brian Burleson is quoted as saying that the Wii U is a "powerful, powerful machine." He added that, just in terms of visuals, the Wii U port will "be better" than the version that will be made for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Unfortunately, he couldn't go into any more detail, saying only that the Wii U has "more modern tech". He did admit that the Wii U port will allow the console's tablet controller to show a motion tracker, as seen in the movie Aliens, to be displayed on the controller's screen.
Nintendo is still staying mum on the Wii U's hardware specifications, at least until E3 in early June. A few days ago, a QA developer sent, and then deleted, a picture on his Twitter account that showed a slightly redesigned Wii U controller.
