Next Gen Consoles All About The Power

Wii U Controller

Power seems to be the common denominator for the next generation of consoles if all the rumours, speculation and articles of the past week are to be believed. Frankly, the prospect of uber-powerful machines capable of overshadowing the performance of the current crop of consoles is enough to get me positively salivating... and make me think that I need to get saving!

Nintendo's Wii U - apparently due to make its debut later this year - is said to be twice the power of the Xbox 360.

Not to be outdone, there are also murmurings that the next version of the Xbox - dubbed the 720 for now - will have six times the processing power of Nintendo's shiny new machine!
