what is with these terrible comparisons. How can anyone really tell (never mind the comparison you can't really tell if the graphics are even good in general) from such a small screen/low resolution. Also side point but multiplatform games generally look identical across systems

If you change the settings to 720 you can see some difference. The 360 has better shadows and more detail on some of the character. For example when he is writing the note on the ship. On his forearm you can see the straps a lot clearer. Also the WiiU graphics are much brighter then the 360 but that could be a user setting that they might of changed. It looks good but I would still pick the 360 version over the wiiU.

Your grasping at straws here. The difference is minimum at best which is understandable as it is multi platform

Anyone else having a problem going full screen? I can't see any difference without going full screen.

"If you change the settings to 720 you can see some difference"

Not really. They're still about 1/4 of the resolution of 720p at that point.

Argil2013d ago

At 720p, each video window is about 360p.

You could not possibly distinguish 4k from 480p (the native resolution of the original Wii). Think about that.

Nintendo is always one generation behind ! LOL Fanboys wouldn't want to admit, but just wait till 720 and PS4 come out

3GenGames2012d ago

Always? You act as if the 7th gen was the 1st. Ever before the Wii, Nintendo was top hardware and software dog. Now they're just software, but still, doesn't excuse ignorantly stupid statement like that.

Can't stand gamers today. I'm going to play SNES and call it done.

The 360 version looks slightly better in terms of sharpness, contrast and graphical details.

ProjectVulcan2012d ago (Edited 2012d ago )

The differences are indeed small but it also seems undeniable to me the 360 version has the edge.

Shadows in game are the most obvious one. This is especially obvious right at the very end when you have gone through the staged sections, and stood on the deck with the crewmans shadow.

In the cut scenes in particular when he talks to the captain then the Wii U version has no specular mapping on his face, while 360 does and it looks a lot better.

360 has better specular mapping on characters and objects to give them greater depth, like a shinyness on such surfaces like the inkpot.

The gap is very small, and most people will not notice. But Wii U is not up to quite the same assets as the 360 version.

This guy is such a damage control wii fanboy u can clearly see the difference nothing more u can say

Daze3112014d ago

Well on the WiiU their are some differences but that is just stuff that you have to look at with a close eye. Like for example if the 360 video was not their all I could say is that it looks much brighter then I remembered. Since we have the video you can see the difference. The one thing you have to look at this video is that he cut out the fight scenes. I would like to see that in action then just the in-game videos.

Daze3112014d ago

I watch the video again and this time I saw that on the 360 the main character, that guy blinks a lot where as on the wiiU he doesn't really at all. like he is on speed or something lol. But I hate the all of the characters eyes in the PS3 version I am playing they are all glossy and shine soo much it sucks. I want to see them with some more time on the WiiU version of games later on see come comparison videos then. like a 6 to 8 months times maybe.

chukamachine2014d ago

Only difference I noticed was the ink pot, 360 was shinny, wii u was not.

1upgamer992014d ago

Who cares what the cut scenes look like. I want to see gameplay compared.

DEEBO2013d ago

uuggghhh! this makes me upset,i pickup the ps3 ac3 thinking its the only one that can do 3d,only to find out that the wiiu can do 3d too but with all the new gamepad features to i have pause or just pull up the menu for the weapon's,to fast travel or just mark something on the map.wwwwhhhhhyyyyy! the gamepad solves all of this and plus i need a third person on the wiiu.nintendo why did u say no 3d games was on the wiiu now im stuck with the ps3 copy.

Neonridr2013d ago

Nintendo never said that 3D games wouldn't be on the Wii U. They just said that they weren't planning any 3D games themselves. But they openly said the system would support 3D. And there was an article on here leading up to the release that an Ubisoft Manager stated that the Wii U version would support stereoscopic 3D.

Regardless, looking at the above video, not much can be seen at all. They look virtually identical, just one is a little brighter than the other.

At least you got that extra AC3 content.
