Wii U Has More Next-Gen 1080p 60fps Games Than Xbox One, PS4

Gaming Blend "Flameproof jockstrap activated: While a lot of fanboys have been clamoring around the Wii U like a wounded puppy, waiting to pounce like a jackal from the shadows, they have missed out on one very important facet of this supposedly underpowered console: It has more native 1080p 60fps games than the Xbox One or PS4."

What a brave journalist to make an article like this lol.

Godspeed sir, godspeed.

He's brave but stupid

He does realise the Wii U will have a year headstart by the time the PS4 and Xbox One come out. I understand if they were all coming out at the same time but I don't think you can do comparisons like this when they released at different times

So yeah I kind of expect it to have more 1080p - 60fps games and I'm glad it does

EDIT: For those who disagreed, please explain your reasons. Why am I wrong? Is it because you have a legit reason to counter my argument or because you hate anyone criticizing Nintendo in any way. Come on it's had a year head start it SHOULD have more 108-p-60fps games.

PS4/XBOXone are too close to PC architecture to use the "we need time to learn the system" excuse. I'm sure it will get better but not by much.

What you are seeing on PS4 xone now is how games will look for a while.

Now obviously PS4/XONE are stronger than Wiiu, its just funny how so many people were saying WIIU isn't a nextgen system because it couldn't do 1080/60fps, now everyone is trying to damage control it now that ps4/xone can't do it without compromises.

The only true comparison will be when all 3 are out, and a comparison is made for a game on all 3 systems like Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, etc. Until then, it's just random numbers. I'm positive the games that run 1080p 60fps on Wii U could be run just as well on the PS4 and/or XBOX One.

@Axecution

That is the most valid argument here. I bloody well hope the Wii U has more 60fps 1080p titles than the Xbox One and PS4 which have yet to release. The Wii U has had a year head start. It would be bad if it didn't

"I'm sure it will get better but not by much."

The PS4 and the Xbox One will get better over time you'll be a fool not to think that. Look at the start of this gen, I thought FOR EXAMPLE Resistance Fall of Man looked amazing and now looking back at the end of this gen thanks to games like the Last of Us, God of War 3, Killzone 3 and even multiplatform games like Bioshock, Tomb Raider and even Assassins Creed I'm like "Man....you've aged". That's alright though because it shows you that as time went on developers managed to get better over time when back then you didn't think they could. Imaging if you could show yourself back in 2006 The Last of Us your past self would be like "FAKE....nothing could look like that".

I mean the sad thing about the Wii U is they are "trying" to gain third party support but even now they are loosing it because of the stupid way they are running things (thanks Iwata). They've had a year head start to establish themselves and the console before the PS4 and Xbox One come out but they failed....and the sad thing is that in a years time like the one year headstart the Wii U got, the PS4 and the Xbox One are going to have some FANTASTIC looking games, especially multiplatform. Third party games devs won't want on Wii U and not because they don't want to but most likely because they can't, if they don't want to dumb the game down so the Wii U can handle it.

So yeah they will get better it's inevitable

It's true, the Wii U has had a year's headstart, BUT, at the same time, Sony and Microsoft fans laughed at the Wii U and deemed it "last-gen" based off of it's LAUNCH titles as well.

But it's funny now how since the Xbox One and PS4 don't have that many 1080p 60 fps retail exclusives, all the sudden we have to wait for devs to get used to the hardware, although:

1) That's the same logic that the Nintendo fanbase used for the Wii U, and yet they denied that.

2) These systems are made to emulate PC's, using x86 architecture and easy to use GPU's. Not to mention Mark Cerny constantly emphasized "Awesome Day 1 performance."

Again, you're totally completely right, I'm just saying it's ironic and funny now how Sony/MS fans are now using the same arguments they FOUGHT AGAINST.

@BBBirdistheWord

Unfortunately no. I am a little annoyed by the sheer focus on numbers. Artwork over tech! Artwork supported by great tech is obviously the best you can get. Most gamers will never know whether a game is 900p or 1080p unless some website makes an analysis and suddenly everyone has always known. I very much prefer 900p/30fps with awesome looks over bland 1080p/60fps and I fear a little that devs feel obligated to deliver 1080p/60fps and will reduce graphical fidelity in order to achieve those numbers. I am a SONY fan but I couldn't care less if a game like Ryse has 900p or 1080p. I think it looks great. The WiiU will also have great looking games and I did not want to say they all look bad compared to PS4/XOne. I just find it annoying to compare visuals by numbers alone.

Is easier to make a current generation game on the wii u run at 1080p 60 frames per second. For example what is easier to run at 1080p 60 frames per second a 2.5 dimensional game like New Super Mario Bros U or say something like Watchdogs. That's my point take it or leave it

At the very least if CRYTEK ,the experts on PC architecture, can't pull of 1080p60fps on xone without compromise then i doubt the xone will see major improvements unless the cloud isn't just BS. the ps4 not being too far off from xone looks like it will be able to pull of 1080/60 on linear games, we still have to see for Open world games.

"Wii U Has More Next-Gen 1080p 60fps Games Than Xbox One, PS4"

"sigh", yeah see this is why the 1080p native argument makes no sense.

It's the technology involved that should be compared. you could produce hundreds of games at 1080p 60 fps nowadays, but how many of them will be pushing for next gen features like HBAO and tessellation.

It becomes a baseless argument when all you're thinking about is a frame buffer and disregarding 90% of the other technology involved.

well if the wii u did come out this november, it would still have more 1080p 60 fps games coming. the reason it hasn't gotten any is because people are just porting last gen games and nintendo's only made a party game, a 2d platformer and a game that started development on the wii.
still, people were saying the system was weaker than a 360 back when it came out, and they were in the majority too. you can spin it however, but the fact that the wii u is ouputting games that easily outclass the last gen in better resolution and framerate, and the fact that it's doing that in its youth, gives us something to look forward to in the wii u's later lifespan.

All those disagrees for stating a legit reason behind why this article is silly and not one person has managed to come up with a good counter argument. I mean I don't think you can because it's just how it is, a console getting a head start obviously will have more 1080p-60fps then consoles not even out yet.

Hell I'm scanning through the comments of people giving better reasons then me and even ones which roughly say the same and the same thing is happening. Why can't people admit it. It's like the main concern of N4G, people who usualy say off topic, silly crap get Well Said bubbles and stuff and the ones who state reasonable points end up getting voted down.

Seriously Nintendo fans are the worst, especially on here.

@AKR

"Yet, so many of you have been booing the system because it's, and I quote: "Not nextgen."

So resolution and FPS make define a game if it's "next gen" or not.

the one & only reason a lot of ps4 & xbox one games aren't running in native 1080p 60fps is because sony & microsoft care more about graphics than resolution & frame rate. they are choosing to max out the gpu for higher graphics instead of just pushing the gpu as far as possible without lower the resolution , or frame rate.

My crappy 6 year old laptop can probably run 4 of those 5 games mentioned in the article at 1080p 60fps.

"SO what you are saying is that some games, even though they may technically be 1080p 60fps still do not look as good as some other games which do not tick that requirement?"

a launch title for PS4, Resogun is 1080p 60fps. it totally looks better than all the Uncharted games combined which are all 720p on the PS3, right? /s

games with less details will be easier to get to 1080p 60fps. for example, I have a mid-range pc but I can totally play BF3 at 1440p at LOW setting. Upped the setting to HIGH and the game crawls!

1080p 60fps is not a feat only achievable by the Wii U as many games on PS3 and 360 achieved it too but most of the times they are low requirement games, graphically.
scissor_runner  +   370d ago
Its not a stupid article.

The api does a lot of sweet things like tessellation which was rumored and full gpgpu control, you can almost by past the cpu... free texture compression which is what the sram is for and im just skimming my notes. The framebuffer along is ready for it and it doesnt have to share cycles with an os that is watching you or recording you.

The xbone does have a good amount of sram yet the kinect will soak that all up. The ps4 power will be limited by recording features that will tie up those tasty teraflops. Then add the fact that we are talking about capturing true hd game play, so now it has to render the frame and then write itto memory or the hdd, that along is a flaw.... it will limit the already limited power of that gpu and the cpus for all these consoles sort of suck yet wait, ms and sony arr treating these chips like theyare i7 or i3s...

compression means your ram pool is only limited by what you can compress and stream or create procedurally. That along is the point of having a gpgpu...

then to add insult to injury the wiiu renders to two screen at all times and it can still pull this off. Dont believe me? Well sign up for your own kit... its all right there...

the fact is the features in the ps4 and xbone will limit what it can do, also more ram helps with debugging, good coding only needs 4 gig and with all of the compression the wiiu does you will see that ram amount become way faster that alarger amount. Its almost like putting gddr ram in a voodoo video card it wont matter.

This is not what we should be arguing about though.. as we should be waiting on the games we want to play. None of you have the kit in front of you and you dont know the full story. Unless you know offical specs then this argument can end now, its silly to claim the wiiu is not in this race. Like always we will let the coding and games do the talking.

um... theres not a single WiiU game out there that can match the xbone or PS4 visuals, sure they run at 1080p 60FPS but none of those crunch physics and polygons as good as the true next gen consoles, remember people the WiiU is competing with the PS3/360 get the facts straight
scissor_runner  +   370d ago
On top of it foxtrot no one knows the api on the wii fully... tessellation of all things is supported... just look at the trees in mk8 that is too smooth to be static and if it is nintendo has some unholy polygon crunchers in house?

all of the numbers are higher and stacked against the wiiu yet why is it able to pull off true hd? Why does higher spec machine need time when the wiiu didn't?

Did sony and ms use tech that was too close to pc tech? Why can the wiiu pull off dual screen gaming when most pcs can't and with a wireless transmission on top of that?

sounds like solid technology to me. It is possible we will see them all excel in their own ways, all I know is tech master on the wiiu might help the other two consoles, if ms and sony have similar solutions.

It is something for the people considering buying Xbox one and PS4 on day 1.

You could get a wii U and have lots to play and wait for drops in price on those systems and a more robust catalog to justify the purchase.

This argument is pointless. It is not 'that'something is running at 1080p 60fps, but rather 'what' is running at 1080p 60fps. We are therefore comparing apples with oranges. Possibly very textured, high polygon apples, with little texture low polygon oranges.
DrJones  +   370d ago
One years headstart is not the reason. The Wii U games are not as graphically advanced as the PS4 Xbox One games and can therefore afford 1080p resolutions in some games. Since the graphical bar is set so much higher on ps4 xbox one, achieving that resolution can sometimes prove difficult. That's why you got some of the disagrees. One years headstart has nothing to do with it.

Resolution and FPS doesn't equal polygon count. Nintendo could re-release an old Nintendo 64 game where everything looked pointy at 1080P and 60FPS, and Capcom could release another 8-bit, 1080P, 60FPS Mega Man sequel. It doesn't mean that the respective games are pushing out cutting edge looking graphics with an obscene amount of polygons to the point where the graphics look photo-realistic.

Your reasoning is stupid.

Everyone based their opinion of the Wii U's overall capabilities based on its launch lineup, but suddenly we're told to wait for PS4/Xbox One. Don't give me this "it SHOULD have blablahblah" BS when everyone was saying that at the Wii U's launch and ever since.

Why the hell SHOULD gamers wait? These systems are supposed to be hella powerful, right? They are based on PC architecture and easier to make games on, right? So why the hell are developers not taking advantage of it?

I'll tell you why; because development TAKES TIME. Time no one gave to the Wii U but were more than ready to bend over and take in for their favorite brand that wasn't Nintendo or a PC-centric company. Go figure.

The fact is Wii U is running more 1080p 60FPS games than the so-called super powerful consoles meant to blow it straight out of the water. Proven fact. And of course, the reverse damage control ensues.
ion53  +   370d ago
The thing is, Wii I doesn't do super poly counts, and high res textures. It has the same textures, maybe a bit more, that the Wii, they just boosted the res, and upped the FPS. PS4 and XbOne is having to deal with more than just a 2D space, or a 3D space with shitty textures (Wind Waker 'HD'). I was expecting that game to look closer to Black Flag TBH. May I also add PS4 is doing lots of physics...

Like the developers have been repeating for weeks, while nobody listened... 1080P 60FPS IS A DESIGN CHOICE! There will always be a trade-off. No hardware is perfect. Not even PS4. If you want to maximize certain visual elements of a game, you have to make sacrifices in other avenues.

@Sono

BECAUSE RESOLUTION AND FRAME-RATE ISN'T EVERYTHING.

I can't believe that you people are seriously having this discussion, and scratching your heads. We KNOW from countless developers that the WiiU is more on par with current gen systems than next-gen systems... so are you suddenly going to ignore that and put the WiiU as the next-gen technological marvel, simply because it's capable of rendering games of lower graphical fidelity at a higher framerate? Holy Jesus mother of god in hell heaven and on earth!

If res/FR were everything, then by that logic playing duckhunt at 1080p 60FPS would be "next gen"... which makes no sense. The PS3 could do 1080p 60FPS... does that make it next gen, too?

How can wii u have any next gen titles?
RexFury  +   370d ago | Intelligent
Why can't it? It is a next-gen console....so in theory, every title that is created for the Wii U is classified as next gen (excluding HD remixes and stuff like that).

Please don't respond by saying "the Wii U is not next-gen" because the word "generation" is based on time, not hardware development.

It is next generation compared to wii but you can't go and compare it to consoles that have at least 4 times the power it have. It's just not reasonable. Ps4 and X1 can run any Wii U game at 1080p and 60fps easily. So that doesn't mean it's better then X1 and PS4.

@GTgamer. What's that got to do with anything? I really don't understand what that has to do with anything I said above.

8th generation = Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 (2005-current)

9th generation = Wii U, Xbox One and PS4 (2012- who knows?)

It isn't rocket science people!
cell989  +   370d ago
its not a next gen console remember that. Just because it came out a year ago does not mean its next gen, when it can push Battlefield 4, Infamous or Ryse the way the next gen consoles do, come back at me
Hicken  +   370d ago
Right and wrong. Generations are both technological AND chronological. 5th generation iPhone, for example.

Chronologically, the Wii U is part of the 8th generation of consoles. Technologically, it's ahead of the 7th generation, but behind the 8th generation.

See, until last gen, the two concepts were pretty much concurrent: the new consoles weren't all that different, technologically, and came out at roughly the same time. But last generation, the Wii bucked that trend, being only a slight technological improvement over its predecessor, while the PS3 and 360 were more considerable upgrades.

That has carried over to the eighth generation, as well(not the ninth, as you've stated). So, now, the Wii U is chronologically a part of the 8th gen, but the technology on display in it is not in the same league as its competition.

So yes, it IS next gen.

But no, it ISN'T.
MartinGlow  +   370d ago
Because it is next gen?

Really, can you not count? What does generation stand for? Can't think of lineage or something? Grandfather is first generation, father is next gen. You come along, you're the following generation. Your children? The next generation.

So, what was Wii then? Because it wasn't competing graphically against 360/PS3, was it considered the previous gen? No. Wii U is better than 360/PS3, but came out a year before PS4 and X1. Would you be implying that 360 was not next gen, even though it was better than previous gen, when it came out because it came out a year before PS3/Wii? No.

7th gen = Gamecube, Xbox, PS2
8th gen = Wii, 360, PS3
9th gen = Wii U, X1, PS4.

Simple.
PopRocks359  +   370d ago

Some of us have been playing Zelda and Mario games for 15 years. And the biggest title releases on the Wii-U so far....A new Mario game and a Zelda HD remake. Its time for a new IP to rise. Too bad RARE had to take their excellence to Xbox.
MrCastle  +   370d ago
I wouldn't call any of those big releases guy. Zelda is the biggest thing to happen to the Wii-U yet and the game is around 10 years old. Rehashed in real HD.
RobbyGrob  +   370d ago
First of all; if the games you mentioned were the only good games that were gonna be released for PS4, you could bet that it wouldn't sell as well either. Why? Because of all the amazing NEW games that people know are coming. Better versions of the old games isn't enough for people anymore. We want new experiences. People are more interested in the PS4 and XB1 over the Wii U not because they necessarily are better products (which they in technical terms may be anyway), but because they know that very impressive new IPs that are going to give them entirely new experiences are coming for them.

The IPs you mentioned aren't system-sellers. They don't convey much to people who aren't already Nintendo fans, and who thus already have the console. Neither of the games you mentioned interest me, regardless of their quality. I can't really explain why, but considering my experiences with every stationary Nintendo console up to the Wii, games released for Nintendo's consoles convey a sense of similarity to each other, and to childhood. Even if a bad-ass FPS or action adventure was released on the Wii U i'm sure i'd still hate it because it would have been "Nintendonized"; stripped of its adulthood and uniqueness. It's like every game released for the PS3 would feel similar to Ratchet and Clank. People would hate them. Not because they hate Ratchet and Clank, but because most people don't like getting the same feeling from game to game. Show me a dark and difficult game like Demon's Souls on a Nintendo console and i'll show you my leopard underwear.

It always surprises me how people can keep defending something that clearly isn't very popular. It's not like your opinion on the Wii U are going to change its low sales figures anyway. Its sales figures are incredibly low. Especially for being a Nintendo product. And it's that low FOR A REASON.

Re-hashing and re-making is different from innovation. Mario and Zelda are always gonna be Mario and Zelda because Nintendo want them to be that way. That means that they are relying on new generations of gamers picking up one of their consoles. They know that their adult fans will eventually move on, and they seemingly don't even try to keep them.

Like MrCastle said, adult gamers today grew up with Nintendo's games. We played several different games in the Mario and Zelda series and many other series on Nintendo consoles long before the first PlayStation was even released. We've already played Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, Kid Icarus, Pikmin and Animal Crossing. Today's versions of these games aren't amazing new innovations. They're re-makes of old system-sellers intended for new gamers who HAVEN'T played the old versions. And Nintendo have been riding this wave for a dastardly long time now.

People don't buy consoles for a couple of favorite oldies. They want to be sure to get entirely new experiences for years to come. And Nintendo certainly aren't reknowned for that. They're reknowned for improving on the old. Nintendo believes that new experiences equals to updated accessories and games that take use of them accordingly. Most adult gamers don't belong in either of those groups.

I'm extremely grateful for what Nintendo has given me. Most of the best experiences i've ever had was provided by them. But they need to grow up with me if they want to keep me. Sony and Microsoft have finally undoubtedly surpassed Nintendo thanks to a breathtaking amount of new IPs that have hit record after record. Nintendo as a company is quickly becoming obsolete. They need to adapt to the world to survive, like every company that ever existed.
_QQ_  +   370d ago
@ robbygrob. i'm not saying those games would justify a console purchase because thats obviously subjective, i'm saying that just because a game is part of a franchise doesn't mean it won't be fun.... Wiiu will have plenty of new games too...
LOL defending somthing that isn't popular? Mario is the most popular name in gaming, look at mario kart wii sales, look at NSMB, even NSMBU hit over 2mil with WIIU's low install base...

So Fire emblem, 3D Mario, and Xenoblade are extremely similar titles because they are all "Nintendotized", honestly that makes no sense at all. I Grew up playing Nintendo too, i still enjoy their games along with other companies games. And what records exactly are Sony and Microsoft's games hitting, Nintendo still has best selling game, pokemon X/Y joined top 10 best selling game in 24 hours. Nintendo STILL has the highest rated game along with the 2 highest rated first party games this gen. Its your opinion if you don't like Nintendo anymore but mostly everything you are trying to state as fact is wrong.
#4.1.4 (Edited 370d ago ) | Agree(10) | Disagree(2) | Report
RobbyGrob  +   370d ago
I think you're misunderstanding me.

You're saying that a new game within a franchise can be fun even if the previous ones weren't. I agree with that. But Nintendo are an exception this rule, on purpose, as they try less harder to create something new as opposed to improving what's already there. And so I come back to my point about how it doesn't matter how good most Wii U games are if people already know what to expect from them already having played several games in these franchises. When you buy a Mario game, you know what you're gonna get. Now clearly, you know what you're gonna get when you buy a COD game too, but that's because its developers just like Nintendo are keeping them similar on purpose. The similarity is part of what you're paying for. I myself absolutely hate COD. The difference there is that Mario games often are single player only. And adults especially crave social games.

Wii U has indeed new games. Good ones too. But since they aren't system sellers it's not going to matter much to those who are already tired of Nintendo systems. Even if new good IPs eventually appear, you don't buy a console to await new games you've never heard of without first having a strong attraction the the games already there. And the games already there have for a while now been more of the same old.

When I said that you were defending something that wasn't popular I was only talking about the Wii U. If what you've been saying is true, the Wii U should have been as popular as the Wii. What you're saying doesn't explain why it sells so poorly. What I said does. I admit that my theory may be wrong. But I could easily round up a hundred friends of mine 20+ who would laugh at you even talking about Nintendo as they consider it a company that makes children's toys. They are obviously quite jaded in this regard, but this is the common picture of adult gamers. They don't care for Nintendo and they don't care for mobile consoles at all. These are teenagers' and casual adults' products. Do you really think that Mario and Zelda are the system sellers of the Wii? Of course not. It's the Wii Sports and the whole motion thing that attracted the tens of millions of parents who thought they could play a video game with their kids without being experts. For the rather picky adult gamer it was a disastrous console as we get tired faster, both physically and psychologically.

The games you mention as the biggest names in gaming are not the biggest names in gaming among adults. Grand theft auto, Battlefield, CSGO, World of tanks and league of legends are. Of course that doesn't mean that games popular among younger gamers don't count. But my entire participation in this discussion had been to explain things from the point of view of adult gamers who already played Nintendo games hundreds of times before. Wii U doesn't have enough sure-fire experiences for people like me and frankly everyone I know over 20.

Nintendo has not grown with their audience. They keep getting new ones. So of course their rehashes are gonna get good reviews. Because they are, as stated, good games. For people who haven't played them five to ten years ago, that is.
clouds5  +   370d ago
Omg :D Nintendo is the ONLY company in the industry that has the guts to try out new stuff and change gameplay. I can't believe your ignorance.

Mario is just a brand. But while CoD is literally the same game each year, Mario games have had completely different gameplay over the years. So has Zelda. The last one (SS) was based completely around motion controls, while the one before (TP) was made for dualanalog gamepads.
But I would have nothing against a new Nintendo IP.

Both the xbone and ps4 will destroy the wii u in specs, but that doesn't mean the wii u is incapable of producing some good looking games.

Nintendo's very non realistic art style and modest physics will help the system achieve better results than if they targeted a realistic style.

@next vs current gen ranters
I don't see a damn thing next gen about the wii u vs the ps3/360, let alone the ps4/xbone.

Next gen with last gen components is still last gen to me, regardless of who designs it. Hence why it's currently bombing.

The industry has their interpretation of next gen and nintendo has it own, nintendo used the power definiation a gen from nes-gamecube. But decided to stop at the wii, don't work that way sorry you can't have your cake and eat it to.

@author Seriously you want to stroke nintendo's dick on having more 1080p 60 fps games( yeah we will see) and yet nintendo couldn't even be bothered to make a 2d platformer like nsmb u at 1080p and 60 fps.

If a simple non taxing 2d platformer isn't 1080p/60fps how the hell are the big games using more complex lighting and physics ect going to hit 1080p 60 fps despite more resources being used.

I'll never understand nintendo fans false impression of elitism(general impression over the yrs) toward sony and ms gamers. Atleast pc gamers have a logical point even if it's annoying to the console guys.

Why is it such a common idea that cartoony graphics are less intensive than games that try to look real?

Just because a game has more colour than another game does doesn't mean it's easier to run.

Cartoony games are just as graphically intensive as any non-cartoony game, they just choose to look like that to appeal to a different demographic.

Just look at Mario Kart 8, it looks light years ahead of the Wii and 3DS versions, obviously the Wii and 3DS couldn't do the cartoony graphics that well, despite them apparently being easy to render.

because im pretty sure there is more work that has to go into games that try to look realistic do to detail its the little details that make it much harder compare Mario grass which has no detail really its just green compared to like last of us for say that there trees and bushes and plants have much much more detail in it. just like when you play a pc game like wow not that big in graphics so your pc if you have a descent pc could run that game at 60fp compared to if you played bf4 on that same pc and your pc cant handle it so you are at 30fps. don't comment on something you really have no idea what your talking about. don't get me wrong im no smart guy but it is kinda common sence.

When did Platinum games ever confirm Bayo2 ran at 1080p native, some gaming publication "believes" that it runs at 1080, if they never said a word you would scratch your head if asked what resolution it renders in. As for X it does look great but we still don't know the resolution nor its framerate. Truth be told the games that run at 1080p are the cartoon ones.

the entire time the ps4 fanboys are slamming MS for ryse at 900p saying 900p in 2013 is pitiful and proves the xbox one is weak, now that the wii u is brought up all the sudden 1080p is no big deal and the wii u games all have low quality graphics in the first place.
just because they're not all realistic (bayonetta is, and looks damn good too) doesn't mean it's not impressive to see it running in 1080p!

LOL @ Batonetta that does not even have realistic graphics. ;)
Concertoine  +   370d ago
"Batonetta" has art style, but at it's core the textures, character models, and some of the settings are pretty realistic. looking at the first game, the gothic architecture is well detailed and realistic.
its a fantasy game yes, but by your logic mass effect, batman, or gears of war aren't realistic looking games.

@LOL_WUT

Nice reverse damage control. Bayonetta has detailed graphics and a ton of action happening on two screens in very large environments, all the while running in 1080p 60FPS. You're an idiot if you seriously think the 360/PS3 can do the same thing.

Oh wait, it's you.

LOL @poprocks

Yea you forget Bayonetta 1 was and is on PS360?
Concertoine  +   369d ago
@kid
I was stating the wii u can do realistic games in 1080p, bayonetta 2 is an example. When he said "bayonetta" he was non chalantly referring to the sequel, since bayonetta 1 is 720p (upscaled on ps3) and its pretty obvious the ps3 couldnt run bay 2 in 1080p when it cant run god of war ascension (a great albeit worse looking game) above 720p, and cant even run that at 60 frames.

When the Wii U comes out with anything that surpasses Beyond: Two Souls graphically I'll accept them as a next gen console. Not until.
RAFFwaff  +   370d ago
no thanks. glorified movie= crap gameplay. And nintendo has once again shown sony, ms what real next-gen innovation means. i.e. dual screen gaming.

" And nintendo has once again shown sony, ms what real next-gen innovation means. i.e. dual screen gaming."

Lol people still obsessed with meaningless buzzwards, you call it real next gen innovation. I call stupid little features that i won't give a rats ass about 99.9% of the time.

I'll state there in general 2 types of gamers in general(very generalised), your kind show me the innovation in gaming, my kind show me and kickass games i'll enjoy with or without earth shattering "innovation" and i'll bite.

If that's real innovation, then i'll take stagnation till vr hits.

So when people start making games that pile 90% of the graphics into the character models(primarily their face), only then will you consider it next gen?

Fanboys have warped perceptions these days.

Really, Beyond 2 Souls did nothing technically high level. It just piled polygons and effects into the characters face. The overall modal complexity isn't that high. Definitely not as high as this. http://www.gamekapocs.hu/me... , http://i1-news.softpedia-st...

Bayonetta's character modeal alone in Bayonetta 2 has over 130,000 polygons. How much does the main character of Beyond 2 Souls have in it?

I guess faces are all that matters in gaming now.

If there is nothing "technicallly high level" about this current gen game. Why isn't the games on nintendo's "next-gen" system making it pale by comparison?

130,000 Polygons... So you see one pre rendered design that isn't even in game yet and you are basing your information off of one video that doesn't specifically talk about that at all?

Firstly the video doesn't even show the word polygons anywhere because mostly all modern game engines use triangles, so you don't even know what you are talking about much yourself.

Why bother talking about game design when you literally don't even understand what you are reading? See the images from the video I can assume you and every other fool are taking this from.

http://www.abload.de/img/ba...

http://oi49.tinypic.com/25f...

Notice how the triangle count has changed in the images. It doesn't matter because it will continue to change and that will not be the final model actually put into the game, all pre rendered characters start with high triangle counts for several different reasons of course people like you would not know that.

Crytek can't even achieve the 150,000 polygon count they were boasting about but somehow you delusional people have it set in your mind that Platinum Games is capable of achieving higher when the first Bayonetta was only around 30k.

More like using information you have no concept of is all that matters in gaming now..

Bayonetta 2 does in everyway.

There have already been enough games that outperform their PS3/360 counterparts by a large margin to conclude that the Wii U can do all around better than they can, and the Wii U hasn't even been out a year.

How many years did Beyond 2 Souls take to devlop and how experienced were the devs with the system?

Your not seeing any games as is making it pale in comparison is entirely a matter of your own personal bias, and likely fanboyism(ie, you'll never accept anything on the Wii U as superior even if the devs straight out say it is which they have in many cases).

Fact is that the PS3 is a last gen system and any game made on it is last gen. So no matter what you see or how good you think it look, the Wii U can do that and more. That is beyond questioning at this point.

The "large margin" you speak of is only large when your fanboy lenses enlarge them.
