Nice been waiting for this.. Wii U is proving it GPGPU is kick ass. I predict in the next couple months WII U Destroys the Xbox 360 and PS3 comparison. NINTENDO POWER!!

ape0071428d ago (Edited 1428d ago )

it's actually laughable to compare it to an 2005 system, it SHOULD destroy them in gfx

fatstarr1428d ago

Destroy... if ACIII was made from the ground up for the wiiu and not a port.
but meh I guess by your comment that the graphics in general are laughable.

Because threes no Major difference at all ,

but I agree it definitely is laughable when people on the site compare 2005 hardware to a PC running games at Max setting.

Muerte24941428d ago

that most of these launch titles are just ports. Which in fact says alot. There is little to no code optimization for the Wii U and it still manages to look this good. I remember when every bot was saying the 360 had better graphics than ps3. But it wasn't until people started actually coding for ps3 did we really see how wrong they were. Devs show off the power of a console, not the specs.

quantae061428d ago (Edited 1428d ago )

People surely forget Godfather, Need For Speed Most Wanted, NBA 2K6, Bully. They forget how those games DIDN'T destroy the XBOX/PS2 versions. Wow! :D

jsslifelike1427d ago

Noticeable lack of texture compression in the Wii U version when compared to the PS3. That being said, seeing something in screens and in action are two different things. PS3 seems like it has better contrast ratio when rendering, though.

Using the word "destory" is, well, stoopit.

@fatstarr - "if ACIII was made from the ground up for the wiiu and not a port"

Yeah, just like ZombiU, the greatest looking console game of all ti.....oh wait. Oh, but Nintendo is....uh, making 720p, ~60fps 2.5D
Just give it a few years! It will destroy the ps3 and 360....which will be, done with.

.....oh dear.

Same here!! I'm loving that UNIT!!

BattleTorn1428d ago (Edited 1428d ago )

Did you see the comparison?

Not only do I think it looked worse than the 360, and PS3 - so did majority of those who voted. (results read 360/PS3/WiiU)

I bought my Wii U 2days ago. I'm enjoying it, and the game quite a bit. But let's be serious for a moment... It's struggling to be compariable to 6yo systems.
It SHOULD be decimating those systems.

All I hope for now is some good exclusives, and enjoy my time that I dedicate to the Wii U.

Just by going off of AC3, Batman, and ME3 (and even ZombiU for that matter) there is little added with the Gamepad. IGN reviewed all the ports by saying "the gamepad doesn't add much more than the mini-map into your lap.. see our regular review"

I was TOTALLY WILLING to re-spend $60 on ports I already played, just to see them run better on the Wii U. Unfortunitely this isn't the case. I can't see it being the case with future ports either. (especially in years to come)

My Wii U review: it is was it is.

If you have $400-500 to spare on gaming, GO FOR IT! (I did with little regret)
BUT, if you don't have a 360 or PS3, or BOTH, get both FIRST. They have waaaaay more value to them, considering their game libraries and supported services/apps. And Wii U isn't looking to have enough "future" to make up for those things.

(this coming from someone who spent 1200+ to replay games, like BF3 and skyrim, running on PC. Which I also don't use. So take what I say with a grain of salt)

jbgamer1428d ago

When the 360 came out it looked identical to the original xbox no some games on the xbox looked better, and AC3, Blackops2 look better on the wii u.

herbs1427d ago

Adjust TV settings for same result.

Blastoise1427d ago


"and AC3, Blackops2 look better on the wii u"

No, no they don't. Did you even look at the images? AC3 look's better on Xbox & PS3. As for Black ops 2 it looks about as good as the 360 version with a performance that's worse than the PS3, according to the comparisons.

Sano641428d ago

What's up with the gamma on the Wii U version? Did they get a 4th grader to calibrate their tv??

DarkHeroZX1427d ago

the PS3 stomped the wii U. Better textures and the color is more vivid and lush. Wii U is washed out and ugly. So much for next-gen

stragomccloud1427d ago

What you're seeing is someone who didn't properly adjust the gamma settings on whatever they recorded the game with.

DarkHeroZX1427d ago

The wii U doesn't support full rgb, that's why you have the adjust the color. In standard setting the Wii U version looks washed out while the ps3 version is washed out.

stragomccloud1427d ago

Take it easy buddy. There's a going to be a lot of ports for a while. I don't think we'll see anything truly significant until cross platform development between Wii U/PS4/720.

ape0071428d ago (Edited 1428d ago )

the WIIU version look identical in terms of texture quality but it has that pale looking, less saturated colors in it, kinda like flour was thrown at screen just like BO 2 on WIIU, i think that could be adjusted, i think they had the same TV settings for both versions, in my experience, some consoles need a bit different TV settings to look as colorful as the other console and vice versa

[email protected] port on wiiu, nice to see an engine on the end of this gen cycle look flawless on a system in it's very early days, CAN'T WAIT TO SEE MARIO WIIU, OMG

shackdaddy1428d ago

It can be adjusted so there's no difference. I've seen comparison pictures of BO2 where they were able to get the settings the exact same.

Actually, from all the comparisons I've seen, H2H is the only site that makes it really noticeable. Most other comparisons only have a very slight contrast difference.

YoungPlex1428d ago

You have to set the black settings on your TV to High and the rest is cake!

KarateExplosion1428d ago

Ps3 and the 360 look identical. The Wii U however, seems to be missing some lighting. I mean its a small detail but it takes away from the realism of the world. In the car scene you can see the light hitting the dashboard and on the Wii U it disappears. Of course there are other scenes where this is a problem. That one is the most easily recognized

Heavenly King1428d ago

Digital foundry already showed that the PS3 version is the best looking version of the 3.

So why do another comparison when the other even showed videos? This is kind of pointless.

Jazz41081428d ago (Edited 1428d ago )

Link saying its the best looking of the three please... just did the research myself and not only did they NOT state ps3 to have the better version they gave the 360 the edge onalot of a little things plus stated with the mandatory 4.5 gig install on the ps3 it allows it to keep up with the 360 on frame rates for the most part. It said there is very little diffrence but with the 360 having the lead platform they showed a bunch of very less noticable things the 360 does better. I would not have argued with you if you would have said it was a tie but to lie about it just shows the true colors of fanboys.

Aghashie1427d ago


You sound a little buthurt over Heavenly comment, yet you call him a fanboy? Hmmmmmmmmm... interesting indeed.

DarkHeroZX1427d ago

the ps3 had full vsync and had zero screen tearng and framerate drops. 360 on the other hand did not.

andibandit1427d ago

Digital Foundry said 360 had a slight edge

ado9081428d ago

Omg it looks horrible on the Wii U... And I was actually hoping that the game looks better on the Wii U because I was planning on re buying it for the Wii U.. Maybe not anymore.

ado9081428d ago (Edited 1428d ago )

I honestly believe you need an eye check or otherwise you're just completely ignorant from the truth. Not only does the Wii U loses its detail it looks faded.

And I know what are people's next reply

"You're the ignorant one for being a fanboy or for calling him ignorant blah blah blah crap like that"

Honestly if people see no difference in this comparison. Then pretty much every other comparison ever made is completely the same. Meaning games like Sonic, L.A noire, GTA, Dead space, Resident evil, Tekken, and so on look completely the same.

I honestly hate when people say "it looks the same" When it clearly doesn't. They're only going to say BS things like just turn down the brightness and bump up the color it will look the same.....

Basically I have to turn down the brightness and change the color settings in every single game I play to look identical to another version even though there are still basic differences like texture and AA and yes even color and saturation STILL.

What's hilarious is I will get disagree's for this despite it being true, it's just peoples mentality these days to basically say everything looks the same, it's just ridiculous.

jbgamer1428d ago

I am sure you where planning on buying one nice try to sound like you are not some blind fan boy. LOL
