According to the The Official Nintendo Magazine , the first version of the Sonic Unleashed Wii Visuals are identical to those which were issued to date on the net!
Surpasses Super Mario Galaxy Sega did a better job with the wii's graphical power than Nintendo WOW!!!
I'll believe it when i see actual shots of it running next to the 360/ps3 versions.
Er, those shots weren't exactly impressive to begin with so it shouldn't be surprising that the Wii would be able to handle it. It featured basic geometry and texture and lighting and no normal mapping/bump mapping/parallax mapping and the only thing that truly constituted them as PS360 screens was the fact that they were in 720p.
Shut up troll. This thing looks great for the wii.
Says the guy with fewer bubbles then me... Anyway, never said it looked bad for a Wii game. I said it looked bad for a PS360 game.
That shouldn't be surprising, it looked like an Xbox game on steroids, which is not surprising, considering the Wii is an Xbox on steroids.
Why the hatting, no one is going to top the 360 and ps3 off the graphics pedestal, but props should go in this case to the wii and Sega, for doing with so little what some developers can't do even for the "next: gen-consoles", also star-wars is shaping up nicely too, remember half cycle of consoles is when good games and graphics come out, so please don't bash, give some props.
first its a gamecube on drugs now an XBOX1 !!!!!!!!!!!!LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
I said Xbox 1 on steroids because Wii has more RAM than an Xbox. The point is, it's a last-gen machine on steroids, period. Saying it is a PS2 on steroids would also be correct.
graphics have improved for the wii if only they were even half as good as anything on the other consoles which leads me to question how good will the graphics be on ps3/360 maybe sega is really trying this time around and will make a decent game and give sonic adventure a decent new installment
Right....well it's still not ne thing to Brag about.....considering it still doesn't put GOW2 to shame...which is on the PS2..an 8 year old system.
Yah, those graphics are not impressive though if they really are wii shots it will be one of the most graphically impressive wii games. I would get that right there.
I have not played a good sonic game for years I think its sad that I have to play sonic on a non sega console though. I hope miraculously one day sega brings another console to us. There strength in the console wars of today would be to bring an upgradable console to the market like that can be upgraded later on from 1GB memory to 2GB memory or something.
There also isnt anything in the pics so this isnt saying much. And you also have to imagine itll look worse when its stretched on a bigger tv in 480p.
you could've said the ps2 sonic but that was overboard this looks a lot better than the dreamcast hater lol
These are nice but I hope the Wii can put out something better than this...
If you care for graphics and you bought only a wii then you are a dumb-ass.
lol, bubbles for that. I don't think people who own a wii care about the graphics...I just want it to be fun. In my opinion about graphics...is it does take talent to create awesome effects that you see in the other consoles, but if we are to evolve this new medium there needs to be more than button mashing...all of the companies are evolving, the 360 with its new wiimote like device, the eyetoy, and things like wiifit are going to drive the gaming industry to new heights. Video games are practically the only industry in america that isn't having trouble, and that's because it's becoming the new escape for the problems we have today.
What???.... who wrote this sh*t???? "Truly next gen" and "Wii" in the same statement???, that's a major error!!!!!! The only statement possible with this two is "wii IS NOT truly next gen", there's more like it!!!!
But those screens do look next-gen, only if Wii were HD.
so far so good wii LOL
if it passes mario galaxy in graphics then hats off to say sega. hope the game plays well..
I wonder if you'll have to waggle the wiimote as fast as you can to make sonic run.
Wow, the GFX look more then decent and people start comparing it to GoW, and complain like b/tches, wtf is wrong with you people =/.
btw, its the lightning causing such a nice effect, lightning is one of the important elements to make games look good. In some cases you dont need a high-poly model.
Looks good indeed now lets hope it plays well
Who woulda thought Sega would be the one to do it? Even beating Nintendo and Retro Studios.
Wait... that town looks familiar. I think sonic is running through the town on delfino island. So help me if sonic gets a F.L.U.D.D.....
(actually really liked Mario Sunshine.)
So good graphics are nothing to brag about if they don't put God of War 2 to shame? O.k. well tell me this: What games graphics have? There are plenty of games out now with clearly BETTER graphics than GOW 2, but put them to shame? Not a one. GOW 2 is the great Marvel at the beginning of PS2's twilight. People need to quit being ridiculous fanboys. Now all of a sudden, GOW 2 graphics are no good, even though we were all ooohing and aaahing just a year and a few months ago at them even in the midst of new PS3 and 360 games? Give it a rest. By the way, from what we've seen so far, Sonic Unleashed graphics are clearly better than GOW 2. So if indeed they look like this on the Wii, then please, just stfu. No it ain't 1080p, but it looks damned good. Can't it just be left at that?
Well, Mario Galaxy Proved what against what we all thought, that the Wii can in fact due shaders(Does anyone remember the bumble bee Galaxy? Dear God..The Water and the fur shader used on the bee looked very next gen. That game almost made me think my wii was a 360 on Some Galaxies). If this is Actually Real time, Sega needs to license that engine to *EVERY* Wii developer.
The Q engine made by the same people of Direct X, is also interesting i hope developers make use of that too.
its funny how wii has the poorest graphics in the next gen console era and it is the best selling, while the ps3 has the best graphics and it is last...360 is pretty good but not all that.
I still have to play God of War II, it sounds fun. About the new sonic, it sounds like it'll be a sweet looking game...I wonder how it'll play compared to the button pressing versions. :)
The only reason why Wii is still existing on the market is that bloody Wiimote, but things will change soon when Microsoft will release Wiimote clone.Just imagine how great will be playing on Newton controller in next-gen FPS's. 2009 will be fall of the Wii (finally).
How much horsepower does it take to render a cartoon hedgehog?
LOL. Sonic's a werewolf.
is the wii a gamecube an xbox a ps2 dressed up like a mac or is it those on steroids or a fad or oh oh i got one a gaming system
