Pump the brakes. Nothing like making definitive statements based on unconfirmed rumors and your own speculation.
Sources say stuff, that title of this thread is sources, shouldn't enter a thread and expect concrete news with a thread title like it is.
If you really think MS would ship a console "half as powerful" as their direct competitor then you really are clueless.
Lol. Half as powerful for gaming, yes, as a system? No, so it comes down to do you want a system for gaming, or for Kinect and other software features like the article says?
Microsoft is allocating half of it's ram towards Kinect 2.0 for gods sake. When the developer says it will fall between the PS4 and WiiU in terms of power, that's probably a decent ways behind the PS4. I have no idea what power the WiiU has.
