Furious Francis and Hero the Impaler discuss the weeks hottest gaming news. Nintendo’s slashed forecasts, EA bold Wii U statements, and shooters. Trust me you don’t want to miss this one.
WiiU is NEXTGEN we have way too much concrete proof now i'm not even bothered about these articles.
Guys, calm down. Watch the Vidcast. Were making fun of EA. Both of us think the Wii U is next gen. The title is sarcastic.
The WiiU competitors will make WiiU look like this gen (ps3,xbox360) that is why everyone is saying wiiu is not nextgen in comparison. It's because Nintendo didnt want to bother being on par again just like the Wii. At least have the console specs be a little closer in technological performance rather than so far apart. Otherwise the Ouya is nextgen and the best thing out there.
Going off Xenoblade wiiu and knowing it won't be their best looking game i think WiiU will be fine next to ps4 ect. In fact Jonn Carmack said ps4/720 will just be able to do their current best games at 1080p 60 fps with better textures and sightly improved gameplay nothing revolutionary as far as he's concerned and then we hear Gearbox is developing an UE4 fps for all three but the ps4 devkit had a meltdown and there waiting on a new one where as the WiiU devkits has zero problems ?? wiiu is next gen.
There is no reason for them to come out with nextgen systems just for anything "slightly better" the only reason to buy is if the companys stop supporting the current system for new games on the next system by force (What Microsoft does) So if this is really the case them I'm only going to buy the ps4 knowing that Sony cares the most it seems about it's fans. So at least there's that and a steady income of great games. At the most I hope the multitasking abilities and processing power allows for more things to go on without slowdown. So ie. LBP level meter overload wouldnt happen like it used to.
aww mann . the wiiU isn't next gen .. ha haaa . but neither is the Gamecube, and the gamecube gots something called Resident Evil 1 remake, and that shihh looks ps3 . so ha!! weather its the backdrops which by the way are ALIVE, or weather its the modeLs, that game is the most astonishing looking videogame to grace the earth . .any naysayers? . come .. let the schooling begin . p.s. . if the wiiU isn't next gen, then Nintendo's about to show this generation, how to use this much power properly . . p.s. at this years E3, Nintendo is gonna damage your souL ...
The title is sarcastic..... Watch the Vidcast. We both think its a next gen console....
I can't believe how you use the same Resi 1 comparison on pretty much every single damn comment you make. Resi 1 isn't proof of anything, dude. That game looked great due to a rather clever trick Capcom did with the art direction, using prerendered assets for all the backgrounds. That's why the game plays the way it does, all static, instead of having live movement in the scenarios. They weren't actual 3D. So, the great graphics had absolutely nothing to do with power whatsoever, but art direction and "cheating". And Nintendo didn't make that game. Capcom did. You make us Nintendo fans look bad. You're just as bad as mindless Nintendo haters.
awww .reLax dude . .the ps2 cant even hanDle that Resi game ): cheating? . ha haaa . it is called being creative . this aint no math test dude . go back and play that game . what isn't back dropped actually looks ps3 . . don't make me buy you a gamecube with that game included . ..
"It's called being creative" EXACTLY what I said. Clever art direction. Not a matter of power. You just agreed with my point, and contradicted yourself. I don't know if the PS2 could've pulled that game off or not... but the Gamecube was actually a stronger machine than the PS2, so that point is absolutely moot. Have a good day.
how can it be next gen when its already here? it's current gen idiots.
so if ps4 or nextbox came out first would it be this gen as well? just be quiet if u dont have anything intelligent to add.
He's actually right. Wii U is current gen now, making Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii last gen. When the PS4 and next Xbox are released, that will just mean we will be fully into current gen, that's all. These are just semantics. Being "last gen" doesn't make a console irrelevant, or obsolete. The PS3 and 360 will still get support for some time after their sucessors have come out, especially the PS3 if history is any indication. To answer you question: yes. If the PS4 or next Xbox came out first, they would be current gen. No difference whatsoever with the Wii U scenario.
hey bro, be careful man, . even though that thing is called a laptop, its better not to place it anywhere near your crotch area . it gots something called EMF pollution . makes for cancer, birth defects in your offspring, and chronic pain . . . look for something called an EMF protector . .
In terms of the WiiU's power, its not next gen, and I think when you ask the average joe what next gen means to them, they will say that next gen means more powerful machines with better graphics than the previous generation. @Francis, EA is not the only entity dropping hints that the WiiU may not be successful. You have Satoru Iwata making a comment about a month ago where he was caught saying that (paraphrasing)"we really want to wow people with our next console", and then within the last week he made a comment saying (paraphrasing) "I might resign if we do not hit our yearly sales goals with the WiiU". There is lots to be concerned about here. Secondly, I haven't read your article discussing why if "Sony releases after the next Xbox, that it would be a huge mistake" as of yet. All we've heard so far are rumors, but even if Sony does release after the Xbox, they wouldn't be giving the 720 a full year head start. I personally don't think that a 3 or 4 month 720 head start would be the end of the world by any means, since the time gap would be short enough where many people might wait a bit longer just to see what Sony has to offer before making a purchase. 3 or 4 months doesn't really give Microsoft enough time to create the kind of momentum that they had when the 360 had a full year to itself. @ Hero, Dude, giving a 10/10 to anything CoD related these days is a good way to destroy any credibility that you might have. Lets face it, its just more CoD. I played the heck out of CoD4, WaW and MW2, but got bored with the series when Black Ops came out. I just don't get how people can play the same thing over and over and over again. PS: Good show guys!
