Telltale: "iPhone is much more powerful than Wii"

talesofmonkeyisland2

A Telltale Games programmer has revealed on the firm's official forums that iPhone is much more powerful than Wii.

The reasoning for the comment stemmed from complaints regarding framerate issues with the WiiWare version of Tales of Monkey Island.

According to a programmer, developers were limited to 40 megs for WiiWare because of hardware and file size restrictions, where as PC titles created were usually around 150 megs.

"The voices and textures are the way they are because we're limited to 40 megs for WiiWare titles," he stated. "The PC versions of our games are usually 150+ megs, and most modern games range anywhere from one to ten gigabytes or more. Talk to Nintendo about this one.

"Frame rate issues will probably get sorted out eventually, but keep in mind that the Wii is just not a powerful console. An iPhone is much more powerful than a Wii, even. The Wii and DS are extremely underpowered and their popularity doesn't remove the hardware limitations."

Yikes.
