Journal Journal: The Wii Less Powerful Than Xbox One?

N'Gai Croal of Newsweek Level Up explores the hardware capabilities of the Nintendo Wii vs. the first Xbox version after the president of Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices division claimed that

"The challenge they [Nintendo] have is that third parties aren't going to make much money on this platform because Nintendo is going to make all that money, and their ability to compete with something like a Halo or produce an experience like Madden on their system is going to be tough. They don't have the graphics horsepower that even Xbox 1 had. So it makes sort of the comparison set a little bit difficult."

Apparently, that statement is very close to the truth. That being said, the question now is, "so what?" Does this affect the Wii's future in the development of more immersive and interesting games?
