See first-hand the difference in quality between the PS2 and Wii versions of Okami.
The Wii version seems to have more vibrant colors.
I agree... That's about it and maybe like a mist like effect on the PS2. Otherwise the same.
The power of the wii truly shines. Like a first gen xbox.
Wow. The Wii version looks A *lot better* It puts the PS2 to shame in some of those comparisons. Then again, that's not saying much, considering PS2 couldn't do Real-time water effects.
You're right I absolutely agree. *Mind blowing* then again the PS2 was released in 1999 so like almost a decade ago O_O
yeah, the PS2 is a whole freaking 7 years older than the Wii, its actually quite sad that all the Wii can do is have more noticeable colors
This IS a port, mind you.
"then again the PS2 was released in 1999 so like almost a decade ago O_O "
Thats actually funny, i mean people bash Wii cant do better than the PS2....
Although, The ps2 was always lacking colors because it only supported 8-bit pallets while the GCN supported 24-bit pallets.
Not sure What the Wii supports but i guess its 32-bit or something...
the wii has progressive scan, and widescreen support.... but who cares.. gamers should just go pick up this great game.
because i don't remember it being so...drab and gray....
The lack of color saturation/lower constrast is how it is on the PS2, I think it helps out with the water color artistic feel. The super color saturation on the Wii makes it look similar other cell shaded games. I think it looks good either way, although it does look nicer in the canvas screen to have the colors like this.
I would say the color change has little to do with the different consoles and more to do with gearing this towards the Wii audience.
The first thing I noticed too. I spent a lot of time playing Okami, and it did not look THAT dull on my tv. At the same time it was not as colorful as the Wii. On another note, I sorta liked the misting effect on the PS2. They should have kept that.
umm this might sound very weird, but I kinda liked the ps2 side a bit more then the wii side.
While the Wii does look more vibrant, I feel when I look at the Ps2 on it's own it's they way they wanted it to be presented, and I like it better. Looks amazing either way. Amazing game still trying to ponder if I should double dip.
The Wii version to TOO colourful in my opinion. Its like they have upped the colour vibrance to appeal more to the Wii audience? Sure at first sight the Wii version looks "better" colour wise, but the games graphics are meant to be of a particular style to that of a painting... so with that, take your pick: - PS2 = Water colour Wii = Oil paint So decide on your favourite art style. This isn't your normal Xbox 360 Vs PS3 debate where "Drab" colour = bad.
Wii version looks better
wii version is most likely capture with component in 480p, like most PS2 and wii comparison. Ps2 version doesnt support 480p and the defaulty setting the in option is standard tv instead of LCD tv.
Yeah Wii version is more vibrant but the Wii has more colors to choose from so there you go. Awesome game on either system though ^^
The Wii version IS more vibrant in that video but I'm running component for my PS2 and it looked pretty much like that except it wasn't progressive scan. Doesn't matter which one looks better, they play the same GO SUPPORT that awesome game.
or is there something really off about actually validating a comaparison vid of a game on two different generation console and mos tyou get from it is that the current gen console has more colour depth saturation?
I mean, really? My current gen machine is being compared to a last gen machine? really?!!
Embarrassing that were comparing such an old game that came to a 1999 console to a next gen console, and there very similar regardless...
Is this really what separates last gen and current gen? That Wii controller must be something special.
I really find this video comparison hilarious. Not much different from the PS "TWO" and the Wii graphics except for color. Haha.
After seeing this... (and owning a wii for 6 months b4 selling it)... I am convinced that all of the Wii games could run on the PS2 with only the barest of differences.
its a port.. they could port this to the 360.. its more about style and gameplay then graphics.. i mean how much can u up those graphics.. u can't exatly add hi res textures for a stylized game.. or can u.. I am prolly gonna pick thsi up used.. i always wanted to play it but no PS2
People fail to realize that Okami Wii isn't a new game. It was ported over. Same game. Same style. Slight upgrades. It's not a new game.
Just kidding. lol. Whatever. A) the PS2 is 480i not 480p like the Wii. B) why are they even comparing this? C) I bet it's pretty fun on the wii with the controls
I don't remember the colors being so washed out when I played it on my PS2, I think their color settings must have been all jacked up for the PS2. I did notice less jaggies on the Wii but most probably it would look just as good on my PS3 with upscaling ^^, great game by the way, if you haven't played it go grab a copy!
wii has brighter colors and it doesnt seem to go with the art direction of the game.
ps2 version is better IMO.
Well the wii looks colorful the PS2 is less colorful, but ok one thing to add in mind they port it over to a more powerful machine, is like comparing Oblivion 360 then comparing it after the PS3 version came out of course it will be better it needs to be or else that would be one horrible port...seriously plus ps2 is just old so give it a break plus it has better games than the wii prove that wrong, you can't XD
This game was a port from the PS2 to the Wii. The graphics were refined a bit, but nothing was redrawn. No extra polygons added. You fanboys trying to make it seem as if the Wii couldn't do any better than what we see here are pathetic. Grow up.
The music is bringing back so much memories. i cant take it im goin to go youtube Shinshuu field
To me Okami was more than a game... ....it was an EXPERIENCE!
Another difference with the Wii version is you can skip cut scenes with the "+" button. Thank god. The Japanese have this f*cking obsession with forcing you to watch cut scenes. I will say that despite my rabid hatred for cut scenes, Okami was a beautiful, spiritual, absolutely engrossing game.
comparing to an 8 years old system how pathetic is that lol
this game is just amazing. i missed these types of games on the 360, that's why i sold it. that's why i love Sony
And are you getting them on PS3?
well i've logged on just so that i can join the fun here. this is similar situation to the whole Gametrailers refuses to use HDMI on PS3 comparisons, because when i played Okami on the PS2, it looked just as vibrant as the Wii version. turning down the colour and then making a comparison is just plain dumb. i don't buy it!
wow you people won't be content regardless of what wii throws @ us, give up, yes it's a port, yes it looks better, that's it, end of story; why make this another war of the worlds....?
And how do you know what Gametrailers is using? Im positive they are going to use the best of what the consoles can offer, otherwise they would be completely pointless comparasins.
i like the vibrancy better than the drab pastel (im sure it would of looked more colorful on PS2 if they had that option)
This is the game all you people wanted to be revived on the wii and now you complain about the game HELLO it's a F*CKING port at least be considerate about being a second chance now if it sells well on a younger console then what would you people say so STFU you people give me headache with the bashing let the wii breathe.
BTW i still thinks Okami sux
