The Sonic and All Stars Transformed racing developers commented on the Wii U specs and have said that they were surprised. One thing they mentioned was that they were surprised by the capability of the GPU and that it has lots more memory than current consoles. While this is all relative to their expectations, the fact that it has much more memory is some good news.
“There are always surprises and unexpected challenges when you develop on a new console,” said Lycett. “When we first got our hands on the kit, the first surprise was the capability of the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit). We’d been worried that we might need to re-engineer all the effects and shaders in the game, but they worked just fine.”
“The Wii U looks as good as any of the HD platforms. The Wii U has way more memory, so we can take advantage of that with less compression on elements and textures, so it will look all lovely and shiny.”
