It depends on how much spin Nintendo put on their press releases. They mentioned that is was 'more powerful', but that doesn't necessarily translate directly into graphics. Maybe Ninty just meant its got a better processor or more RAM or whatever you can measure power in with a console (I ain't no expert)...
That would be kind of underhanded of them to be honest - most people consider better graphics a sign of more power, but this tactic would not surprise me.
After all, we've seen nothing on the Wii even on par with the likes of Resi 4 yet, and yet the Wii is '2 or 3 times' the power of the cube? So, um, why the hell not?
