Is it possible for Nintendo to release an expansion pak to the Wii U to boost it's performance and put it on par with the PS4?
>>
no, that would be too neat
>>
It'll take more than DOWNLOAD MORE RAM to fix the Wii U
>>
They could make a new console and put the Wii U's optical drive in it.

Consoles don't have the possibility for expansion anymore.

No, because this isn't the 90s where this is acceptable.Even thought it should be.

I don't see the problem.

No, because then it'd be a PC.

The Wii U's worst bottleneck is its shitty CPU, and there's not really any way to fix that.

What's the point? The PS4 and Xbone aren't doing anything but pushing polygons and textures.

You might get some multiplats, but even if third parties did some lazy ports they'd almost certainly be on PC too.

Smash 4 basically looks like Brawl with brighter colors and more polygons, though. Getting a game like that to run at 60fps and 1080p wouldn't even be hard on an Xbox 360.

Charging port. Plug the charger into the bottom of the stand that came with the WiiU and set the game pad into it and it will charge.

I would imagine not, no.

Nintendo doesn't survive on hardware power and hasn't in a very long time: it survives on making generally acceptable first party games in very established IP's that people like. The ratio of good games to crap has been about 1:50.

Either way I am pretty sure the lionshare of their money comes from their portables.

Nintendo exists only as long as nostalgia over Nintendo overwhelms any poor choices they make with their IP.s.

The port is still unused. I'm pretty sure the stand only use the bits of metal on the side to charge.

The games do have some nice aliasing though. Wasn't a fan of most of the art styles in Wii games, but we've had more fun on my friends WiiU in the past month than I have with my PS4 in the past year.

Do you even own a Wii U? Cable goes ontop and is a modified USB similar to the 3DS.

If you want more RAM why don't you just buy a PC?

>>274553892

It's for the secondary screen to be released later, called the Wii U2

Modular consoles would be the answer to outdated hardware, but it creates 2 questions.
1)Would Consoles be distinguishable from PCs if you can upgrade the parts?
2)Would releasing upgradable parts for a console divide the console base? For example: Releasing a game that will only work if you buy the extra ram or the new gpu.
>>
>>274554771

Not really saying a whole lot since the PS4 has what? Absolutely no co-op games at all? Or many games for that matter?

It would be hard not to have more fun with friends on a Wii U than either an Xbone or a PS4. Just Mario Kart will accomplish that.

I dunno, I am personally just sticking to being PC Master Race. Nintendo and I have an understanding: They put out an F-zero release on a console, I am willing to buy that console. Until then? Nope.

I'd prefer an expansion pak that makes it backwards compatible to Gamecube games like the Wii.

To go from stable framerates to unstable ones? I don't understand...

The Gamecube controller adaptor should do that, really.

Is it possible for Coleco to release an expansion pak to the ColecoVision to boost it's performance and put it on par with the PS4?
>>
>>274555047
The real problem that an upgradeable console causes is that not all of the user base will have it, which means that games have to support multiple hardware profiles because not everyone will upgrade.

Its easier to just release a new system and roll forward, possibly with backwards compatibility. At least as long as you can communicate to your users that this is a new thing that they need, and not an unnecessary minor update.

Charging cable goes in the top.

1. Yes, PC is inherently a different beast, being much more open than a console to development and tampering. Even fairly secure games on PC can be modded or otherwise edited to do things the developers didn't intend, to the degree of which isn't seen on modern consoles.
2. It depends on how it would be done. If games simply reduce detail without the upgrades, it's not really a big deal. If the game can't be played at all (Like LoZ: MM or most of Perfect Dark), then you're going to have a lot of unhappy people unless there's a wide range of games that need it.

I was thinking more along the lines of 3D goggles but okay.
>>
>>274555047
I think the solution to those problems would be for the console manufacturers to limit the release of such expansion accessories like every couple of years and make it scalable. The N64 expansion pak is the perfect example, some games needed it to run but other games were scalable. RE2 had higher resolution textures with the expansion pak, making it the best console version of the game.

Personally, I'd be all for it just for 60 FPS.
>>
>>274556974
The N64 expansion wasn't really planned for though. The full expanded memory and the disc drive were originally planned to be on the system from launch, but memory prices drove Nintendo to double-back and delay both.

>2)Would releasing upgradable parts for a console divide the console base? For example: Releasing a game that will only work if you buy the extra ram or the new gpu.

Make a PS5
Let people upgrade their GPU and Ram for 3 tiers

1.Poorfags- games will still look pretty but not run as well as other two cards, cheap for poor people who want to game but don't care as much about resolution and framerate

2.Moderate- higher than poorfag but in the middle

3.Mustard Lite-max resolution and framerate, MUCH higher price

Can sell them pre built and GPU/Ram can be sold seperately for whenever you want to upgrade

1.PS5 Poorfag $300
2.PS5 Moderate $450
3.PS5 Mustard Lite $600

The Wii U does not need more powerful hardware. The hardware is fine to make games that are fun.

Is the Substitute in Smash 4 the single most gorgeous thing in any videogame ever, graphics-wise?
>>
Why not create a console that's affordable on it's own (think $200 launch price) and mid spec, and then you can buy more of it and stack the units into a cluster for extra performance, and games will have different settings for different stacks, and if you buy multiple game copies you can insert them in all the available drives and drastically shorten the loading times, or alternatively reconfigure everything to run a multiplayer splitscreen off the different units.
>>
>>274553892
It's the charging and video out port used for demo units and promotional stuff.

Every damn ATX motherboard comes with tons of PCIe sockets, how expensive can it be to slap a similar onto an adapter plate connecting consoles? Think of it like SLI, except with entire motherboards. Microstutter may become a problem, but it sounds like nothing some dedicated R&D can't fix if the potential profits of an entire console platform stand behind it.

Sega tried something of the sort with the genises. At that point though you are talking about a computer basically. Your building a console/PC

Fucking this. There's nothing wrong with the PS4 having a library of games which are mostly also available on the Xbone. There's plenty wrong with the PS4 having a library of games which are mostly available on the PS3.

You couldn't build a $600 PC to compete with a $600 PS5 for the first couple of years. Mass production means cheaper prices that the average consumer wouldn't be able to compete with. Obviously if you spend more you'll get more but a $600 PS5 would be more powerful than a $600 PC.

You talk as if running a small ass stage with eight players on it is some feat of wonder. It isn't. Note how PS4 and Xbone (I think) can pull 1080p 60fps with no dips in CoDAW with 18 players.

Why boost the performance of the wii u? Its already better and has so many more games for it. Its slightly underpowered but who cares
