Yea baby Wii U looks and performs great, hatters will still hate but the Wii U version all the way.
ABizzel1  +   425d ago
All 3 versions have strength and weaknesses:

Graphics: Wii U > PS360
The PS3 has brightness turned up to the max, the 360 version has darkness turned up to the max, Wii U is the perfect balance. The 360 and Wii U version have 1080p no mandatory install (I recommend the install for 360, but the Wii U's HD texture pack in already built into the game), the PS3 is 720p mandatory install.

Screen Tearing: Wii U >>> 360 > PS3
Screen Tearing is annoying and the Wii U version has none compared to the PS360.

Framerates: PS3 > 360 > Wii U
A 1 fps difference isn't going to affect gameplay, but I guess it's worth mentioning the PS3 version is 30fps (almost locked).

Loading: 360 > PS3 >>> Wii U
Loading has been an issue with the Wii U from Day 1. It still takes a moment for OS features to function (not as bas as it was), and even games are suffering from this slow loading. Get it together Nintendo.

And this goes to show exactly what the problem with the Wii U is and what I've been saying for the longest. The Wii U's GPU is better than the PS360 which is why the game look a bit better than those versions (pretty much on par, but it has a better balance of the PS3 and 360 graphics), no screen tearing (V-sync), rival FPS, HD texture pack built into the game, and 1080p.

The problem with the Wii U is that archaic CPU and the slow RAM, which is why loading is as bad as it is. The Wii U needed an install specifically for load times, but with a 8GB or 32GB system installs are going to be harder and harder to do. They need to release a Wii U with a real HDD, and for their next console get a better CPU, and faster RAM.

@voodoochildnyc. That makes no logical sense. THe Wii U is the strongest console out on the market right now.

There is nothing else for it to be compared but what is out. PS4 games will uncountably be compared to PS3 games. I guess that will show its fate.

I'm thinking that the screwy load times are due more to the way the game is developed. The Wii U's architecture is much different so unless it was the lead SKU, it will have to deal with PS360 code.

The fact that it has to do that and the one drawback is loading times is impressive. Once games come out that prioritize GPU processing over CPU processing (see: other next-gen ports and ground-up games) we should see the load times improve.

The main RAM may be "slow", but the eDRAM on the die more than makes up for it, it's just a matter of utilizing it correctly.

Not a single first party game from Nintendo has had poor load times for instance.

"The PS3 has brightness turned up to the max, the 360 version has darkness turned up to the max, Wii U is the perfect balance."

actually, if you look at the majority of the rollover images, the Wii U images look muddled/grey/washed out.

with that being said, though, none of those images are really all that accurate. anytime there's been one of these comparisons, PS3 has always looked white-washed, but if you were looking at the game on a properly calibrated TV, it looks completely different.

@chente0025

Before release, all the Nintendo fanboys were saying how every game was going to be 1080p/60fps. As soon as the console releases and everyone finds out that most games are 720p/30fps, Nintendo fans backpedal once more to "graphics don't matter anyways."

Graphics don't matter for the most part, but when it's the exact same game, graphics do matter. The Wii U might be able to pull out better looking graphics than an eight year old console, but when the PS4 and Xbox One are released, it's going to be yet again second rate next gen console.
SilentNegotiator  +   425d ago
@chente0025
Battlefield 4 might not be 1080p, but Shadowfall will be 1080p.
What Wii U games are 1080p that aren't 2D, 2.5D, or remasters?

"wi u fans aren't the ones bragging about power bro! "

Because all they can brag about is games looking or running triflingly better than on LAST gen systems.

Oh, and aren't they? Looking at the comments here, I'd say many Wii U fans ARE bragging about it "destroying" the last gen version with less frametearing and little else.

Yep, I noticed the Wii U version looked a little better in videos and didn't have the screen tearing that the 360 and PS3 versions have.

The Wii U version is definitely the best looking console version.

The PC version, though, is on a whole 'nother level. It features tessellation, much higher resolution shadows, higher resolution textures, parallax occlusion mapping, HBAO+ ambient occlusion, contact hardening shadows and higher precision post effects.

On PC this game is simply stunning. It's one of the best looking games in my PC library next to Crysis 3, The Witcher 2, Metro Last Light, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, etc. Actually, I think it looks better than some of those games.

Finally, a comparison showing third parties are getting the hang of the advanced video processing of the wii U. Clearly better textures all around. Shame that results in a slight dip in framerate and longer loading. I imagine as 3rd parties wrangle that new cpu/gpu combination we should see that becoming less of an issue.

LonDonE  +   425d ago
This is a weird problem on the wii u, am not sure if its ubisofts nat code or Nintendo's. but when i bought assassins creed 3 at launch on wii u to this day after trying near enough every day multiple times i have never been able to play a single match online, every time it searches for lobbies, it says their are none, WTF? and its the same situation with splinter cell blacklist, and its beginning to tick me off!!

For starters the fact wii u dont even have a Ethernet port and instead we are forced to rely on crappy wi-fi, which lets face it will never be stable and good enough like hard wired via Ethernet port!
And this can be a problem on the wii u, we are forced to buy a wii Ethernet usb adapter for the wii u to get a stable connection!
But why on earth nintendo decided we don't need one in 2013 is beyond me!
how much more would it have cost per console to include it?
And theirs the lack of proper built in storage, most games and online games in particular need constant patches to update and fix stuff, but with limited storage most devs wont bother, i know we can add a external hard drive, but by not having storage included as a standard the potential market of wii u owners the have,and have not will segregate the wii u owners!
And so devs wont bother until the install base is allot bigger!

And then theirs the fact we cant even format a hard drive partition, instead wii u forces you to use your whole external hard drive on the wii u, which is stupid, i don't want to waste my whole 1tb drive on the wii u, i use it for EVERYTHING!!!

Back on point,ubisoft games have problems online for allot of gamers on wii u, go check the forums at uplay you will find lots of complaints, one supposed fix is to put the wii u in DMZ,(DE-MATERIALIZED ZONE) of your router, which i don't want to do, since i already use my primary PS3 in the dmz of my router, and you can only have one device or internal i.p assigned to it, which for me is my slim PS3, while my fatty PS3, my 360, and wii u and pc all are just normal with the required ports manually opened by me, but all this is stupid, it should be plug and play!!!
Good luck anyway if you figure it out message me if you don't mind wouldn't mind playing online!

Its one of the reasons why buying games you want to play online is not a good idea if its bought on the wii u!
the communities will be far better on PS3,360 or pc! but its difficult when splinter cell black list is clearly the definitive version for consoles on the wii u!

LOGICWINS  +   426d ago
It depends on what "next-gen" means to you. If better graphics/production values is how you define which console is next-gen or not, then thats a very one dimensional definition. Next-gen, in a broad sense, means having new hardware that changes the way we play to make our games more fun and immersive.

The Wii U Gamepad, particularly with Blacklist, makes the game more immersive and arguably more fun depending on who you talk to.

Even when the PS4/XB1 come out with their fancy graphics, the Gamepad is what will keep the Wii U relevant for the next 4-5 years (depending on how well devs take advantage of it).

Well gamepad is nice. But it's not a huge factor to sway one over to the WiiU. Performance is the biggest factor - per$. And the WiiU unfortunately has the wrong value proposition. It has to go down to $199, otherwise it will have to compete with the next gen consoles. WiiU is a current gen console 4 years late with an additional second screen. It's not enough at this time. Next gen consoles will offer second screens, too. PS4 with Vita and Phone/Tablet companion apps and XBone with smart glass.

If you have one already, sure, makes sense to get those games for the WiiU. But if you don't? PS3 version plays quite the same, looks the same. Not enough incentive for me to shell out another $300-400 to play the same game with a tablet controller - so close with the next generations around. And if you "just" want to get into gaming, there you get PS360 for $199...

Well I was playing the PC version last night which has DX11 tesselation as well as TXAA with HBAO+ none of which is available on console. HBAO+ in particular hugely improves the quality of the ambient occlusion shadows, rather important for a game like this. It is running 1920x1080 with a minimum vsynced framerate of about 65FPS and an average of about 80FPS.

This is more than twice the resolution of any of the consoles AND nearly 3 times their average framerate simultaneously.

If Wii U destroyed the others PC is off the planet.

This begs the question why you are arguing over 1 frame or slightly better texturing in a fight to claim "which is the lowest end of low end versions'

As for the game itself it seems pretty good but its turned into a virtual shooter. I am not convinced its better for the series. You can play it in total stealth but it just seems too easy to go around shooting everyone.

Horses for courses I guess

starchild  +   425d ago
As far as the graphics, I completely agree. The PC version is on another level entirely.

I have to say that the lighting and shadows in this game are THE best I have seen in any game.
Ubisoft and Nvidia worked hard to take those elements to a new level, because Splinter Cell is based so much around stealth using light and darkness, and it shows.

The shadows are super high resolution and don't have almost any of the dithering or jaggedness that shadows in most games do. They are simply the cleanest, most defined and detailed shadows to be found in any game. Even very small pinholes in cloth let light pass through which allows the fabric to create very complex and finely detailed shadows the likes of which I have never seen before in a game.

And yes, the HBAO+ ambient occlusion is freaking incredible. It's unarguably the best ambient occlusion technique by far. The shading it does to the environments is very accurate and imparts a lot of depth and a sense of realism. It's also so clean. Finally an ambient occlusion method that doesn't have all that flickering you get with SSAO and even normal HBAO.

What's really cool about HBAO+ is that it runs through DirectX 11 unlike HBAO and it is so much faster to render. So it doesn't impact the game's performance as much.

Splinter Cell Blacklist on PC is the very first game to utilize HBAO+, but it's going to be used in upcoming games like The Witcher 3 (on PC).

All in all Splinter Cell Blacklist is one incredible looking game. The good thing is that it has the gameplay qualities to match.

They did in fact take advantage of the better lighting on Wii U, that combined with the higher image quality, remind of NFS:MWU. Even with mandatory HDD install to keep the fps/textures up, the ps3 is really showing it's GPU age. If more time/effort were put into the U version, the improvements would be even larger. They done good for a port over.

Ju  +   426d ago
Game pad for the WiiU is probably the biggest factor and its smoother game play. Rock solid 30fps.

But, in all honesty, I am surprised how the PS3 is holding up - from a pure performance standpoint. Despite the tearing - which is hidden quite well (compared to the 360) - it runs the highest frame rate. WiiU does not tear, but e.g. in the opening sequence it drops down to 20 or even below while the PS3 version keeps the 30fps.

Also, I think the PS3 has the best lighting a bit ahead of the WiiU with best contrast (HDR?) but WiiU appears a bit "foggy" in comparison, 360 is very dark (low contrast). Not really visible during play.

Surprisingly PS3 with best lighting and best texture res (which I personally didn't notice) runs highest frame rate. The stats say PS3 tears more than 360, but it tears in places it doesn't matter (hidden in top/bottom areas of screen). WiiU is no doubt the smoothest of them with rock solid 30fps during game play. Too many choices and too late for a WiiU for me - at this time. All three versions are great, though.
Angeljuice  +   425d ago
The 360 version alters the geometry somewhat. If you look at the faces in all the screenshots, PS3 and WiiU are the same size and shape but the 360 displays them slightly shortened and widened. Curious to know why this is.

its just proof people will downvote anything......so pathetic!

next gen, next gen crap talk as usual. the ps4 aint gonna change the world sony fanboys. particularly its first year of games. Battlefield 4 at a disappointing 30fps???!! And graphically aint nothing special! Knack aint looking great either. People should chill out and love the console they own without constantly looking at what other consoles have. Or buy more than one console and enjoy the various exclusives. But man, most of you guys bitching is just SAD.

To add to that the Wii U will be the first next gen console to have not 1 not 2 but at least 3 games running at 1080P/ 60FPS.
GezForce  +   425d ago
What are those 3 games you speak of? just curious wiiu owner here.

Riiidggge Racer....

oh, wait, this is so 2007...

1080@60fps. But true. Not next gen (well, it was, in 2007 or so)

Best comment i have seen in a while.

the Wii U has the highest FPS, the Ps3 manage to catch up bcos it was 720p, also the engine used (UE2.5) is too weak to optimize the wii u true power. Yet Wii U outshine the ps360
Let's wait for better comparison by digital foundry.
For me, the Wii U load time is faster than my ps3 by 6secs, i tried it several times

"he Wii U has the highest FPS, the Ps3 manage to catch up bcos it was 720p"

Do you know that WiiU version is rendered at only 720p, the seme resolution as PS3 and X360, and only then it is upscaled to 1080p.

Are you aware that WiiU version runs at ~28fps copmared to ~30fps from PS3 version

"For me, the Wii U load time is faster than my ps3 by 6secs, i tried it several times"
LOL, just LOL.

PC version is still the best one, by far.
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   425d ago
No shtttt

wiiU does not have a multi-play.
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   425d ago
So what if one look slightly better than the other no matter what version u play u still gonna get the same experience
RAFFwaff  +   424d ago
well, no actually. The whole point of the Wii U is to provide a UNIQUE gaming experience (or assymetric gameplay) compared to the other consoles. Hence, id take off-tv play, better graphics, miiverse connectivity and a seperate menu/map layout on the gamepad over the fact that wii u load times are a couple secs slower.

Well, regardless of which console it looks better on, I'm enjoying the new Splinter Cell.. It reminds me of Chaos Theory and Pandora Tomorrow. Loads of fun.

Except it drives me insane that Michael Ironside is not the voice of Sam Fisher.. whoever does the voice is decent, but sounds about 25 years old and not grizzly enough to sound like the Fisher we all know. But it's certainly not a deal breaker. Ya, just kinda gotta get used to it, just like when there's a new bond actor after a series of 007 films.

glad to see the wii u getting some attention from devs, it certainly is more powerful than the old tired 8 year old ps3 and 360

that said, having played the pc version maxed out in dx11 with everything cranked, it makes every game shown on ps4 and xbox1 look last gen
ramiuk1  +   425d ago
i wouldnt say last gen,that might be a little too far back.
i have it on pc,1080p,ultra looks better than any i seen on ps4,xbone,but i have only watched vids online that are compressed and not in flesh so its hard to say,but pc is mindblowing and my system is only £500 build.
aquamala  +   425d ago
I know it's not fair to compare to the PC version, but on PC it looks phenomenal, DX11 and very optimized for Nvidia too with HBAO+ and TXAA,SXAA.
ramiuk1  +   425d ago
i been playing this on my pc last couple of days.
and before anyone says i have it preordered too.
the game looks amazing,menus a bit long winded but in game its great.
the cover etc kinda pushes it away from chaos theory greatness ,as its a bit too helpful.

oh and the story in it is scary it could be so easily true and happen any day
