Disappointed gamers have been complaining bitterly that Nintendo has even “cheaped out” on the Wii U’s controller battery, after learning of its “paltry” 1500mAh battery and the rather suspect large empty space around it.

This time around, Japanese gamers were moaning about the inadequate nature of the controller battery:

“What the hell! This is less than the 3DS LL!”

“This is worse than anyone imagined!”

“Arrrgh!”

“They totally cheaped out here.”

“What’s up with that huge unnatural space in there…”

“They are going to sell a high capacity battery pack separately I guess.”

“And you lot kept complaining about how heavy it was – and yet this is how it turns out.”

“Obviously that huge space is for a battery pack, sold separately of course. That’s why it only gets a 3 hour one!”

“God, this is a trashy spec!”

“That space!”

“Oh come on…”

“Worse than the Vita?”

“Perhaps they just originally intended to give us a huge battery but changed it?”

“There is obviously something supposed to go in that big space.”

“What a godly space. This is Nintendo hardware quality alright.”

“Expect a fat battery pack soon…”

After a post-release dissection, the console was also revealed to have a fairly miserly 2GB of RAM:

Doubts about the main console’s computing power continue to be raised, with most putting it at “similar to” the current PS3 or Xbox 360 despite the intervening half decade since their releases, though for some reason Nintendo has been less than forthcoming with details of its specs – not that most mainstream buyers will care.

    You can't actually buy extra touchscreen controllers though, at least at this point, nor would you really want to, since current games don't make use of more than one. For same-system multiplayer, the other players use either the Pro Controller, Classic Controller or Wii Remotes, which existing Wii owners will already have.

    I'd say the price seems reasonable in comparison with the other consoles. The current non-stripped down Xbox 360 bundles sell in the $250 to $350 range, depending on the bundled game, kinect, and other features, and if you want to play online, you'll be spending an additional $50 or more a year. The PS3 is around $300 to $400, depending on the bundle. Plus, you have to remember that the Wii U is new right now, and demand outstrips production. When the next generation of consoles from Microsoft and Sony debut in another year or two, they'll undoubtedly cost hundreds of dollars more.

    Of course, if you already have a 360 or PS3, I can see how you might not be able to justify the cost of a new console that currently mostly features ports of games already available on your system. The Wii has a decent number of games available at launch, but doesn't really have an exclusive killer app quite yet.

    RAM is cheap, 2GB is nothing. To say, "but this isn't a PC!", is a ridiculous argument.

    Do you realize how much of a pain in the ass it is to optimize a game for that paltry amount of RAM? How many corners have to be cut? How many aspects of a game have to be lessened to meet this requirement?

    The Xbox 360 does only have 512MB of RAM, but 360 games also have horrendous graphics as compared to their PC counter-parts.

    "Do you realize how much of a pain in the ass it is to optimize a game for that paltry amount of RAM?" : since the N64, nintendo has been overly cheapass with hardware, and developers always had to cope with that. don't worry, we used to it. and play on other consoles.

    when you know your way with gbc or gba, 1+1Gb is fairly enough, even if it is slow

    Nintendo hasn't really been cheap with hardware since the N64, at least not compared to the competition. The N64 was a very capable system, in many ways better than the other consoles available at the time. The Gamecube's hardware was likewise on par with, and in some ways better than its competitors, though much like the PS3 early this generation, the hardware was "different" from the market leader, and it received a lot of ports that weren't well-optimized for it. It's only been since the Wii that Nintendo really skimped on hardware compared to the competition, and that seemed to work out fine enough for them, since they offered something different from the competition.

    Even so, optimizing for any amount of RAM on a console can be a challenge, since developers will use all of it when trying to push for graphics that meet or exceed what's being done by others. With fixed hardware specifications, they'll always be going through great lengths to hunt for new ways to get more out of the system. With the PC, there's no fixed limit to hardware specifications, so they can simply design for whatever arbitrary limit they decide upon, and list that as the requirements. They may push for some amount of optimization to enable their game to run on low-end hardware, but it's not as important.

    While you could argue that Nintendo could have included more RAM at minimal cost, or a slightly faster graphics chipset, or whatever, at the end of the day, someone has to pay for this. Even with the current specifications, Nintendo is losing money on each console sold, even if they make it back after selling one game. Add in another $10 worth of RAM though, and they might need the licensing fees of two games to break even. Add some more internal storage, and it might be three games, and so on. They could raise the price of the console to make up for this, but that might slow sales, and in the past doing so hasn't worked all that well for them.

    This reminds me not to take things people say on the internet at face value. So many words, so little accuracy.

    Anyway, 2 GB of RAM on a console is a fuckton. You think your nice little lap top with 8 gigs is "just barely pulling it off" until you check what is using all that RAM and realize your god damn mp3 player uses more RAM than you could fit in 500 computers 20 years ago. The browser sits contently on top of a pile of 3-4 gigs of RAM after running for a few days because developers these days think "sall good if they run out of RAM there's always swapping other shit to disk".

    RAM on consoles not the same as PC huh? You're trying to spread some farce here?

    Both Sony and MS are going to make an x86 based console for next gen, so future consoles are only going to be technically closer to PCs than they were in the past.

    And no one saw the AMD stamp on one of the parts in that WiiU breakdown? lol

    It's amazing how some people think 2GB is good enough because BLABLABLA 360 ONLY HAS 512KB BLABLA. Are you guys forgetting that WiiU is supposed to be next gen? That it's supposed to be ABOVE PS3 and 360?

    If they're still going to remain with 32bit systems when PCs have long made the transition to 64bit, shouldn't they just maximize RAM to the 32bit system's RAM cap of 4GB if this is truly supposed to be next gen?

    Yeah, the ram you buy for PC costs that much, but you don't know how much it costs to produce ram for a console.
    Consoles don't use the same motherboards and shit as PCs do, so you can't apply the same pricetags to completely different pieces of hardware.

    One thing everyone seems to forget is that the reason consoles can be better optimised than PC's is because the hardware remains the same on every system. The same is not true for PC games where owners might have different graphics cards, motherboards and CPU's, meaning they're forced to make a 'cover-all' program to deal with that. Cutting out the crap is why consoles, despite their minimalist RAM, can function perfectly fine and perform graphics on par with average spec PCs.

    Optimization is something which simply can't be done to the same degree on a PC.

    ram is cheap yes, but 4gb is more expensive than 2gb and 2 are actually more than enough for a gaming console. the only thing more ram would do is to lure devs into sloppy coding, and that's it.

    same goes for pc. if the majority of applications and games wouldn't have crappy coding, any system would run fine with 2 to 4gb - there's absolutely no reason for 8gb, 16gb or even 32gb specs.

    There's something called efficiency and there is also something called not wanting to make the console really expensive. Have you programmed a game before? Only graphic whores will complain only about the graphics. A game doesn't need serious HD graphics to be a good game. Plus, the majority of people who buy Nintendo products aren't hardcore gamers who play shooters all the time. The argument, "but this isn't a PC" , is not a ridiculous argument because it's aim more for kids and casual gamers so the specs is not supposed to match a PC. As a programmer, it's more than enough to work with.

    "It's a Nintendo console, so why care because they're aimed for casuals."

    Too many games Nintendo have made for Wii and are making for WiiU that shows that they do care about hardcores and they damn want that part of marketshare so damn bad, they could taste it. It's just that they're taking the cheap way out for hardware because they know they can sell those consoles on gimmick and brand alone.

    You're saying The Last Story, Xenoblade, both Fatal Frame IV, Fatal Frame 2 remake and Pandora's Tower were aimed for casuals?

    You think casuals would bother to learn inventory management and studying zombie AI for ZombiU?

    Hell, would they even consider Bayonetta? lol

    Nintendo ported so many hardcore titles for WiiU, and those hardcore titles are the ones being advertised the most along the usual Mario and Zelda titles for the game launch.

    Also, larger maps and more objects actually contribute more to gameplay. It's not the same as resolution because whether the image is sharp or not, it will still determine whether the game will load every 3 fucking doors or just one. Also, bigger maps would enable more players to roam in a map for multiplayer.

    Let's not forgetting all the side stuff they're implimenting like chat, watching TV and stuff. How many of these operations can run at the same time or while gaming depends on RAM among other things.

    There are other factors such as CPU processing power and threading, but RAM directly affects gameplay because of the sheer amount of data it can hold. Since RAM is also cheap as fuck, there really were no excuses for Nintendo.

    Are you really a programmer...?

    Well let's not mistake that these consoles are in fact computers. They are just locked down and customized with their own OS and capabilities. Every single game made is tested initially on PCs and has to be locked down by custom hardware and software to limit the playability on the console, so really the reason the comparison still exists is because it'll never really disappear.

    That doesn't give my fellow PC gamers a good reason to be douchebag about PC vs Console of course, because that doesn't really do anything for anyone.

    They have this wonderful device which allows them to 'test' the games on the target consoles. They've had them for years. Some in the form of PC cards which essentially run a miniaturized version of the console (essentially a virtual machine), and some are genuine console units with extra bells and whistles to allow them to transfer code.

    Generally speaking though, these test systems are given extra RAM than their retail counterparts because they'll be running un-optimized code which generally has a bigger overhead.

    The OS wouldn't be loaded onto the RAM, it'd be installed to the hard drive. The games themselves take advantage of the RAM.

    All games are technically "tested" on a PC first because that's where they're created. They have to at least make sure it works before going through the trouble of porting it to a consoles software.

    Fact is specs are what you can expect of a console which core fanbase is kids with main buyers as parents, Nintendo has the monopoly of this segment so they can afford so many things, including no need to have really high specs for causal gamers looking merely for fun not the best performance or graphics.

    Do you think parents rae gonna bother with specs? NO, they look at mario, smash borther, zelda, etc, just frun for their kids.

    Now be intelligent before you come up and complain that you are not a kid and you enjoy it, thats fine, I enjoy some nintendo games too, they are fun with friends, otherwise for the serious gamers that's what the pc/xbox/ps are for.

    So point is, nintendo core fanbase could care less about specs, they have no idea anyway.

    Whom are you calling an idiot? The person who correctly pointed out that USB drives don't use RAM?

    lol even if the comparison of thumb drives vs RAM was legit, we're talking about a 10 dollar saving PER CONSOLE here. Now do the math and see how much they saved when they manufacture 100 million consoles.

    LOL Please re-evaluate your knowledge of computers. You're becoming an addition of ignorance in this country. Flash is not RAM. You have the internet. Use wikipedia or something.

    That's not sarcasm, dude. Making a tech mistake like that only make people laugh at you. Making a comparison between a usb drive and ram only shows one huge misunderstanding of the hardware.

    Maybe it's just me, but I thought his usb flash comparison was so obviously wrong that it was very funny.

    This is the internet, sarcasm doesn't work. You say something stupid we're laughing at you. Don't even try to save face by saying you were just trolling or it was sarcasm

    Mistaking a comment that's meant to imply that the WiiU is an overblown USB drive and not a console as a comparison between USB drives and ram shows a lack of cognitive depth.

    Calling someone on their comment regarding the intended joke behind the initial statement based on the aforementioned misconception makes more people laugh at you than the one you presumed would be laughed at for their "mistake".

    USB stick is not the same as RAM. Write speed on FLASH is horrible.

    It doesn't cost as much as your DDR2/3 memory per GB nor have the same performance.
