Based on everything we saw at E3, Nintendo’s new Wii U console didn’t look any more powerful than an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. Now, though, some developers are apparently saying that’s not the case!

Speaking with IndustryGamers earlier today, Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia said “Some of the developers we spoke to indicated to us that the console will have 50 per cent more processing power compared to the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. This is yet to be confirmed by Nintendo.”

Now, this isn’t an analyst guessing, or making a prediction like they normally do. This is an analyst directly passing on information they’d heard from people working on the console.

Such a vague term could mean anything, of course, especially without more technical information in support of it, but for those hoping games could look a little better than what was shown at E3, it’s cause for optimism.
