Games "At the end of a week in which Electronic Arts confirmed it wasn't developing a thing for the Wii U, one of the software engineers in EA Sports' Canada studio, in a series of since-deleted tweets, disparaged the console as 'crap' and suggested Nintendo should give up on hardware altogether. 'The Wii U is crap. Less powerful than an Xbox 360. Poor online/store. Weird tablet', tweeted Bob Summerwill, listed as a senior software engineer at EA Canada, in a reply to a tweet posting a link about EA's no-Wii U news. 'Nintendo are walking dead at this point'." The Wii U is turning into the 21st century's Virtual Boy.

No one has a clue here. The PS3 is much weaker than the 360 technically


Every SPU is easily 4+ times faster than PPC core even on PPC optimized code despite they have similar specs on paper. SPU optimized code could run 10x faster. So in reality CELL is in other league.
It is easy to achieve high utilization on SPU in contrast to PPC core stalling in pipe bubbles and LHS.

Battlefield3 @ PS3 uses DX11-like rendering pipeline running on CELL.
