the wii u has 2 gig of ram and more advanced gpu that both the ps3 and xbox. Big deal. The next Xbox and ps3 will blow this wii u thing out of the water. But for now, as far as tech goes, wii u is on top.
jaosobno  +   1156d ago
Actually it only has 1GB of usable memory. Other 1GB is reserved for OS and cannot be used to execute games.

To all potential disagrees: This is a fact confirmed by Nintendo.

GPU is more capable, but CPU (according to developers) is lagging behind PS3 and X360.

You could add 512MB of shared RAM to present gen and practically get systems of identical power to WiiU.

So much for next gen leap.

as far as tech goes, nintendo wii u isnt even out and when it does come out it still wont be on top... If you think about it, it takes a console and game devs a good 5 - 6 years before they max out the power of a system. And if you want to tell me NO, then you would basically be saying, all the new games like... U3, AC3, FC3, CODBO2 ect. Dont look that good graphically! The wii U isnt that much more powerful then 360 and ps3, so by the time the wii U is pushing games to half max, your gonna get ps4 and next xbox, with double the power of a wii u, which everyone knows this, already putting them ahead. Hope you understand what im saying, its hard to explain but makes sense lol. Im not saying your wrong, just making a point that is made every generation of consoles!

i have a feeling no next gen is going to come close to pc today, it cost too much no way is sony going to take a gamble and put out another 600 system.

@jaosobno that's a lot better than split 256x256. Fact is if you combined the 360 and PS3 the Wii U would still have more power under the hood. Next gen has started and Nintendo is kicking the doors wide open.

Wii U could load Youtube videos in the guide menu while playing a game. PS3 can't even cross game chat. All that and the Wii U is the same price. Gee I wonder which one people are going to choose?

Can someone explain to me
the difference between a game running at 1080p vs one that is displayed at 1080p?

From what i gather, most games are generally programmed at a lower res but then given the option to be displayed at 1080p via the console or the tv. Basically upscaling from the original assets.

Running the game at 1080p would imply that everything was programmed at that res. All assets and textures and models were coded at 1080p therefore the game runs at 1080p.

So now is this version of the game built from the ground up to run at 1080p or is it simply a port that is upscaled to 1080p?
badz149  +   1155d ago
why not? Sony has proven that releasing a powerful system at OK price is possible with the Vita! current top smartphones without contracts cost up to $700 but the more gaming capable Vita is just $250! sure, Sony might not make as much money from every unit sold or maybe none at all but they are looking to cash in on software, not hardware unlike the iPhones and Galaxies which are selling at a very nice profit margin each!

The Vita is pretty much still at the top crop in terms of power among handheld devices and will still be for quite sometime! dev will continue to push the Vita but on smartphones? not so much! nobody wants to push boundaries with selling price of <$5!

so, there's still hope that, the PS4 will still be packed in with some serious power under its hood and sold for a price not breaking the bank! my guess is, $399 top!
Ares84HU  +   1155d ago
They shouldn't be boasting about this since it will be the weakest system in the next-generation of video game consoles. It's more powerful than current-gen yes, but it's an unfair comparison since current gen systems came out 6 years ago.

I cannot wait for the next Xbox and next Playstation and than ask Nintendo.....what about the graphics now??? What was that again??? Oh yeah, I didn't think so.

Nintendo, just be quiet please!

PS: PC blows the WiiU out of the water when it comes to graphics......just saying.
LostDjinn  +   1155d ago
@ darth: Native res is the res the scene is rendered at on the G buffer ((or back buffer( it's the same thing, it just has different names depending on who you ask). Components of the scene (particle effects, blur filters, H.U.Ds, models, etc) can be rendered at a different res individually but the back buffer is where it's put together and becomes the output frame (image).

You can use hardware or software (in most cases both) to upscale the image but that doesn't really improve it. It's just an attempt to cut down on jaggys. It'll actually make textures more muddy and other fine detail gets lost as well.

Anyway, I hope this helps. Don't ask me anymore questions!

Edit:I don't know if this game runs at a native 1080p. I don't think anyone (that does know) will be able to answer that until after it releases. (That's the other part answered)

comparing the NEW Wii U with the 6 years old PS3? bias much?

and choosing between 2 HD systems; 1 with 6 years worth of games (retail + PSN) & PS+ which offers plethora of new games and stuff for FREE every month if you subscribe and the other one with just a handful of new games + ports of released games and using a "yet-to-proof-itself" ; online network....hmmm tough choice! /s

at the moment, if you're not a huge Mario and Zelda fan, there's not that many reasons to get a Wii U just yet! if you think that people will flock to Wii U so just they can play the same game available on PS3 and 360 only at higher resolution, you're wrong! if that's the case, no one would play on consoles because even a decent PCs/laptops can do more that what the PS3 and 360 are capable of! maybe not the exclusives, but 90% games (my estimation) are multiplats anyway!
Autodidactdystopia  +   1155d ago
@ Darthv72

Here is an analogy.

note that the original assets do not Have a resolution per se they are rendered as mathematical shapes and can be infinitely rendered at a higher resolution. the textures however do have a resolution. 2k 4k 8k etc.

imagine taking a piece of paper and covering it with an image 1024x1024 then taking that peice of paper and wrapping it around a pryamid shaped object stretching it so it covers the whole shape. that is called uv mapping and is done in every game or 3d model that is finished.

rendering resolution is another matter. contrary to lostDJIn the higher the resolution does NOT make textures muddy and does not lose fine detail. It gives more fine detail. sometimes the original assets are very low resolution and when you up the resolution they are more clearly blurry. you are actually getting a better look at them.

imagine a screen door. that when you look through it each pixel would be represented by a hole in the screen door. the catch is that on this screen door each hole can only pass through one color. if looking through a 1024x720 screen door the image can only be so detailed. now imagine that that screen door was 1920x1080 you have now almost double the holes in the door to see a color through. the result is a crisper clearer image with fine details that WERE NOT THERE when rendering at a lower resolution.

the difference between upscaling and native resolution is that each extra pixel you have to draw to screen costs performance meaning that if you go too high the sytem cannot handle it.

with upscaling it just takes the 1280,720 image and stretches pixels so that each one takes up 4 pixels on the screen and does post process averaging to make up fake details for image smoothing purposes. which is what the 360/ps3 do. which doesnt cost nearly as much performance as i believe both the 360 and the ps3 have "hardware" upscaling similair to hardware mpeg2 decoding. meaning that it costs nothing to the cpu, all of the upscaling is done on the dedicated chip.

Never mistake more resolution always is better and shows more fine detail at distances farther away from the player. the only problem is performance.

Sorry but why would a PC fanboy complain 'bout COD running 1080 on WiiU?
We've had 1080 Res for years now, and with a far better FPS than 60, and on many more games than just COD...

Naturally its the console fanboys with pre-1080 systems who feel so offended and are the ones stamping around complaining.

ok so these new generation tween "hardcore gamers" grew up with the term HD games meaning games with good graphics... and not having anything to do with resolution (which is what HD or SD are defined by, the resolution)

so now anything with good graphics (ps3 Xbox vita games) not necessarily being 1080p(what most consider to be true HD) are considered to be HD games by them (even though they are mostly sub HD like 720p)

so now that nintendo has the wiiu, able to run games in native 1080p at 60 frames per second

(AND) people(fanboys), in thier minds still have the wiiu as being from "this gen" meaning, not more powerful than ps360 (this gen by them being defined by graphics, not the actual defenition)

by them the wiiu CANNOT and WILL NOT be considered superior(even slightly)than "current gen" because its not a "real" console

and therefore the wiiu versions of games CANNOT be superior

Nobody is really mad about it. People might be cracking jokes on the Wii-U, but nobody is actually pissed off about COD running at 60fps. It's just an excuse for a site dedicated to Nintendo hardware to tout something that they think will make people who don't like Nintendo mad. They're doing what shitty writers do best: Trolling in lieu of an idea of something of substance to write about.

Because hater fan boys are the most immature and spoiled little cunts that exist today. They dont know it but they want the Wii U because it's better hardware and they are gamers, but they are so attached to another brand because of child hood memory's or somthing. So it seems to them that these memorys are some how threatened by Nintendo. So they have to bash Nintendo and hold on to the hope that there brand console is still some how more powerful when in fact they are not. Get over yourselfs.
RIP_Weazel  +   1155d ago
@herbs. Who's mad dude? Realistically, Nintendo will have the highest spec console out at time of release, so you'd have to hope that the games released would reflect this.
As for hater fan boys being " the most immature and spoiled little cu*ts that exist today"...hmmm.

its not really much of a big deal. ....

I mean, Ive been able to play COD in 1080p at 60 FPS since COD4.

it seriously isn't much of a difference. It just makes all the bland textures stand out a bit better.

It is kind of funny.. I mean.. It's only been seven years since the 360 came out... people shouldn't be mad that a new console can outperform it. Seven years is FOREVER in consumer electronics. There weren't even smartphones seven years ago.
sourav93  +   1156d ago
There's nothing to be upset about. This is great news. It shows that the Wii U, unsurprisingly, is more powerful than the PS3 and 360, which are 6-7 year old systems. And this also means that Call of Duty on consoles won't look terrible (all relative of course) anymore, and when Sony and MS bring out their next gen consoles, it will be even better, of course that is if they have higher specs than the Wii U, which they mostly likely will do.
avengers1978  +   1156d ago
I agree so what........ And really I don't think that this will make people that game on PS3 or 360(were most your call of duty is played) run out and get a Wii U, because besides from running slightly better(1080p, 60fps)it's the same game they can get on there current consoles... I have yet to see any thing for WiiU that says it is that much if at all better than PS3 or 360.

The gpu is way more powerful think a more powerful E6760 lets look at the stock version.


HD/3D- HD/3D
Eyefinity- Eyefinity
600 gigaflops- 1 terraflop
DX11/Opengl 4.1- Opengl 4.1
Shader Model 5.0- Shader Model 5.0
Compute shader 11- Compute shader 11

I'm saying 1 terraflop becasue nintendo tweaked the gpu to fit the UE4 and Ubisoft said the wiiu is basically a 6770 and nintendo themselves said the HD4850 is roughly where the power is at and that ran at 1.34 terraflops.

Thats 2/3 generations above ps3 shader model on ps3 is 3.0 wiiu 5.0/ps3 dx9 comparable wiiu dx11/ps3 zero eyefinity/ps3 zero HD/3D support.

Oh they did say the graphics are better as well as 1080p/60fps don'r forget that bit the lighting texure res everything.

ReviewTechUSA has too many people hanging on his every word
He has a lot of followers. He's a good talker. A salesman. He has some smarts and is somewhat tech-savvy, but he makes so many mistakes in his videos with poor research methods, and then gets very, very defensive and churlish if someone calls him on it - even when in a friendly adult fashion.

Full HD DOES mean 1080p, it does, BUT, why didn't they come out and SAY 1080p? Perhaps because there's something fishy about it?

If the Wii U does output BLOPS2 at 1080p and 60fps, it would make it a very capable beast.

Until they officially state the game is native 1080p instead of skirting round it with buzz words, assume nothing as official.

N6  +   1156d ago
Agreed completely. I'm a Nintendo fan and tend to be optimistic with expectations, but in this case ReviewTechUSA is reaching. Of course we know what "FULL HD" means, but we don't know what they mean by it (if that makes sensee). If we listen to the context, during the press conference Activision was saying "HD Graphics...FIRST TIME ON A NINTENDO CONSOLE". So what that spokesman (who may not be tech savvy) easily could have meant, is removing doubt from fans that yes, the Wii U is capable of producing HD, and used the word "FULL" to emphasize that point.

My reasons for doubting 1080p , are due to hard facts. Developers have said the CPU is weaker than its competitors in some areas, however, the GPU is stronger than expected. The problem is the design/architecture is revolved around PS360, which is CPU intensive, and no one is currently taking advantage of the Wii U's GPGPU right now. Ubisoft maybe the only 3rd party who is, but they need to get used to that modern feature as well.

Its simple - if you are providing details, just SAY 1080p, if that's what it is.
PopRocks359  +   1155d ago
ALLEGEDLY the CPU is weaker. Namco said that when dealing with the clock speed they had to "work around" it.

But RTUSA made the point of saying that the devs would never have said "FULL HD" if they did not mean it. Why would they say full HD exactly if they did not mean full HD? That would make no sense.

A lot of people in the gaming industry are being exposed as jealous losers who simply can't share something with others.

They actually think Nintendo consoles can't have nice things. Get over your brand preferences and give something new a try or else ignore it and let it be.

It's also pretty dumb because the Wii U is more powerful than 360/PS3 so they can't blame Treyarch. They're working with better tech, so of course they'd make it 1080p. That's like getting upset when your GameCube/PS2 plays a prettier version of Tony Hawk in 2001 than your Dreamcast did in 2000. Of course the newer console (Wii U) will look and perform better than the older console (360/PS3)

You what just hit me? Why don't console makers allow flash memory via SD/USB drives to expand system memory in the future? Kinda like Windows does, even though that was mostly aimed at Netbooks.

i think it would be inefficient in terms of speed. unless its specifically designed and then it would be fairly expensive. Also then you would get into the issue of some people have it and some don't and you separate your market.

Geez has anyone here seen CoD on a PC in 1080p? It still looks like ass because the textures still look like a game from years ago. I can play Quake 1 in 1080p, yeah it looks awful by today's standards. Seriously CoD is a horrible selling point. In the end, who gives a crap.

And of course I'm already voted down because you can't handle the truth. There's nothing worse than a Nintendo fanboy.

Black Ops 2 is using a modified engine. It looks nothing like the original id Tech 3 engine or whatever it was based off of. Sure it's no Frostbite 2.0 or CryEngine 3. The Unreal 3 Engine has been around forever and it's still modified to this date. Games like Gears of War 1 used UE3, as well as Gears of War 3. But games like Zumba Fitness also use UE3. You think those two look the same? :P

I voted you down over your childish name and also childish avatar. Sorry but it is childish and honestly pathetic that you need to act the way you do about someone you probably know nothing about but obviously you have some self esteem issues and making fun of others helps you deal with your own inadequacies.

BTW there is always something worse than a fanboy. Blind trolls like you are always worse. I'd prefer someone who is always positive and talks about what they enjoy than trolls whose lives are so empty they focus on things they hate and let it consume them.

Ps3 brownies fanbois are way worse
FunkMacNasty  +   1155d ago
ps3 fanboys are THE worst, most whiny, most verbally assaultive of the gamer fanatics. Worse than Nintendo or MS Fanboys, and most times theyre even less reasonable than PC elitists.

Also people with usernames that play on brand names of feminine products are also pretty bad.
CalvinKlein  +   1156d ago
well ps3 and 360 cant even run COD in native 720P so this is a big step above our current "HD" consoles.

Just wow!

When's the next bus? I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
ronin4life  +   1156d ago
I don't know, but I can tell you one thing for sure:

You aren't getting off this planet in a bus...^_^;;
ZoyosJD  +   1156d ago
I don't know, maybe that zombie filled bus can teleport to the moon. :P
stuntman_mike  +   1156d ago
try the Cani-bus to amsterdam, i hear they get well high..
Flatbattery  +   1155d ago
If people can go orbital over higher screen resolution on a new system then I sure as hell can leave the planet in a bus, maybe even bareback on a giraffe.

Or alternatively, stuntman, tell me more about this Cani-bus, sounds like it could cushion the shame I'm experiencing being a gamer.
stuntman_mike  +   1155d ago
@flatbattery A friend of mine took a coach to Amsterdam to try out the local flora so to speak and they called it the cani-bus lol. I don't know if it was official but...

Hard8 complaining and whining is nothin new. he is a joke. Ill just be honest and say it. He used to be funny and entertaining but now he just wants to troll Nintendo since its the "cool" thing to do. 'Adult gamers' lmao he needs to cut it out with the foolishness and arrogance if you ask me but hey his audience eats that stuff up. To each his own.

mshope10  +   1156d ago

Neonridr  +   1156d ago
Absolutely. I have so many games to play for the Wii U when it launches, plus I have to squeak in some 360 games too.. Where will I find the time?? :P
wnek9  +   1156d ago

Pandamobile  +   1155d ago

sandman224  +   1156d ago

While this is great news for Nintendo owners, I honestly don't know why people are getting so angry about it. Honestly, PC users aside, I think they are just angry that until the next systems from Sony and Microsoft come along, Nintendo will have games that look prettier. Heaven forbid guys, your consoles are 6/7 years old, no surprise there that a console released today is more powerful. You still get to play your games on your system, don't worry. And yes, eventually the 720 and PS4 will come out and those too will do native 1080p as well. The world will be at peace..
CBaoth  +   1156d ago
I agree with you about the droids and bots
But Nintendo themselves have some culpability in this alleged "controversy". As a PC gamer and someone whose livelihood who dependent on TVs, FullHD doesn't mean NATIVE resolution but rather simply filling pixels on 1920x1080 display.

HD is 720p, FullHD is 1080p, and UltraHD is anything over 1080p. They're marketing buzzwords conjured by TV companies to sell TVs to the masses. That's it. It CAN be upscaled.

The big N could've easily avoided all this confusion by using the words "natively rendered" in all the press events.

The WiiU do something right: Outrage
The WiiU do something wrong: Outrage
The WiiU does nothing: Outrage
The WiiU does something neutral: Outrage.

It has been the same since the Wiiu was announced.
tiffac008  +   1156d ago
Yeah too much doom and gloom every time a console or handheld is announced, you think they want everything released by the Big 3 to fail or something.
