Getting this for 3Ds, saw 30 fps coming. Devs don't take the time in the 3Ds as they should.

The same applies to Vita, although the Vita hardware is easier to program for since it uses mobile chips for the most part.

I hope it's not another Sonic Generations deal...where the console versions were totally awesome and then the 3Ds one makes me cry again.

God what an aweful game...

OMG...please tell me dimps isn't making the 3Ds one...please god no more!

Edit1: Christ Dimps is making it...oh god...I wish I had the will power to cancel order but I dont:(

Apparently from reading wiki, it's because of the engines Sonix Xtreme like style that they could do 60 fps on wii.U. Apparently since there isn't a lot going on in background they saved on resources.

Where is this wiki?

Also, to you comment about the Wii U's reosolution. Nearly half the games on the console are 1080p.

Where or not a dev uses it in a game is matter of whether or not they want to spend resources on it or something else. Shin'en already clarified that the hardware has no trouble running things in 1080p itself.

Really? I actually liked the 3DS version more. The controls felt better (and the spin dash not being crazy fast was a big plus) and the last boss was ten times better than the one in the console version. I just wish it was longer.

But I may be biased since I don't really like modern Sonic gameplay.

I hate the new resolution wars. Nothing about resolution tells you how good/bad a game is.
kB0  +   727d ago
Resolution is tech, it never says anything about how good a game is, but games LOOK better at native resolution.

I personally hate playing sub resolution because it blurs the wonderful artwork. I bought a 720p TV for my ps3/360, and have a Tube TV for my Wii.

I can't do anything less than the native. It doesn't have anything to do with the quality of the game play, but it has a alot to do with the art of the game.

Have you tried playing Wii on a 1080p TV? Even ps3/360 games look like crap.

If the game is good you can enjoy it on any resolution, but it would be nice to play it the way its meant to be played:) This of how much detail you miss when you make the image stretch over the pixels instead of having each pixel do the detined image?

You nailed it with that one.It's all about a good match. I played Sega Saturn on a HD TV and kept thinking to myself... "I don't remember it looking this bad" Then I hooked it up to a nice tube TV and it look WAY better. SNES 8-bit 16-bit anything less then current Gen Need a good tube TV. When you watch retro reviews on youtube AVGN, Classic Game room, Mike the NES punk.. They all use Tube TV's for a reason. Some people just don't understand.

Yup thank You Neogeo.

People just like to keep lieing to themselves or "settling"

This is what FANmania has done, people lie to themselves in order to justify their favorite product.

Xbox fans started saying how it's amazing for microsoft to lock games if it means they can have their games anywhere blah blah blah, Wii.U fans can't give a crap about 1080p because now that Wii.U can mostly only do 720p Native, it's no longer important to have 1080p...even thought 1080p has been around for almost a decade...And Playstations fan can justify PS4 not being backwards compatible with ps3 because it's better tech and gaiki (w.e that online crap is).

It's seriously getting pathetic. People take the smallest thing with such offense it's starting once again to be embarrassing to even call myself a gamer.

This makes absolutely no sense how people in the gaming community started "settling"...what the hell happened?

The Statement "Oh who cares about resolution" is like saying omg why do I need glasses because my vision isn't that bad I can still see where I'm going and what I'm talking to...it's just not 100% clear....

Why wouldn't you want crisp?

I mean people won't even admit that having a higher resolution makes a difference haha. Or saying oh it would've been better in 1080p but oh well....we have to say "I hate the resolution wars"

LOL k then when the Wii.Wii.New comes out tell them to do 240p like the old DS...see how that works out.

Seriously pathetic...in coming Disagrees.

Nintendo fanboys would say the same thing if it was 480p. Don't bother.
linkenski  +   727d ago
Try playing a PC game in 320x240 then, and say that again. I say resolution matters for a game's quality but 720p or 1080p won't matter a huge deal unless your TV is natively 4k or something.

In the future try not speaking in absolutism, it never works (see what I did there?)
Software_Lover  +   727d ago
Why do people always go to the extreme cases when they try and make a point? 320x240, really?

I game at 1200p on my pc. I know about resolutions.

But it's like you said, 720 vs 1080p really won't matter, unless its the console fanboys.

If one game came out 1080p 30 for one and 720p 60 for the other, which console has the "definitive" version? Of course the guys will see 1080p and then make blog after blog declaring their purchase the best one. Of course the other team will see 60fps and declare their money well spent.

Who is right or wrong?

Honesrly im glad to see the new game on the 3ds
Phil32  +   727d ago
I might get both versions, as they're two games with differently designed levels.
GamerRising  +   726d ago
Uyour definetly right with that one! Home consoles tend to have the advantage. Thats why im frighten bby the fact super smash is going to be on the 3Ds. But I really want to see a sequel to sonic inleashed
MNGamer-N  +   727d ago
It looks just so-so to me. Not much different form the sonic games on wii, except for the galaxy-like level connections. When I cruse through the levels I always feel like I'm missing something... secrets, rings etc. I hope it's better than expected, for Sonic's sake.
Broburger  +   727d ago
60fps is all that matters
kB0  +   727d ago
60 fps is more important than resolution your right, but 1080p would've been nice too;)
memots  +   727d ago
Eeerrrrrmyggeeeerddddddd its not 60fps . Teh epic fail , last gen . How can has enjoy this Gamez nows ! >?


How can i possibly enjoy any game that were 30fps now ? My whole gaming life was a lie.

@the disagree. Its called sarcasm.

Qrphe  +   727d ago
As predicted, I do not care about resolution either but do highly dislike those getting their panties in a bunch for rumors. MK8, Bayonetta and most of the Wii U games will be 720p as well.
memots  +   727d ago
I know right.

Its the gamer entitlement all over again. Guess what people one of the best game of last gen was 720p and running at 30fps it did not stop me from loving every seconds on it.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   727d ago
Mario Kart 8 is 1080p and 60fps
Qrphe  +   727d ago
And the delusion continues, there really is no helping you hopeless people

PopRocks359  +   727d ago

In all fairness, that's a screenshot from an early build of the game. I'm not saying it's going to be 1080p or that it's going to be 720p, all I'm saying is we don't know what the final resolution will be.

Besides, this doesn't negate the games that are 1080p.
ChickeyCantor  +   727d ago
Thats a pic of size 1280x720, doesn't prove jack sh/t. Just saying. If it was any lower, would you claim the same thing?

Whether its true or not you are jumping the conclusion here.

Dude your wrong SSB and Bayonetta are 1080p 60 FPS. There is a list of games that do so right here on N4G. Do your research.
Smashbro29  +   727d ago
I honestly thought at this point we'd be seeing every game 1080p at 60fps.

Nintendo was smart though, everything up/downscales to your resolution on WiiU (just like on 360) so the majority of the people won't even notice.
SonyNGP  +   727d ago
60 fps in a Sonic game is a must. Look at how Generations runs on the PC compared to the consoles.
ritsuka666  +   727d ago
Sonic Lost World for Wii U's 720´p native resolution'
