While answering some questions on twitter, Jonathan Morin told a fan that the Wii U version of Watch Dogs looks closer to the 360/PS3 versions.
Wow and what does the PS3 and 360 version look like? I'm afraid.
And that's exactly what I was afraid of...
I love this game irregardless of the concerns but that did make me laugh :3
Dude, take my bubble. Excellent sprite, BTW
So, this pic the resolution is 1080 p or 720 p? lol
That was funny
Who actually thought the console would be on par with the ps4/X1 versions? This makes sense as the WiiU is not a next gen console spec wise ;)
dude I love my wiiU but you mad my said thank you
LMFAO so so hard!
Honestly its your fault for getting mad if you thought it would be even close to the ps4/xbox one version,should be common sense for a person to know that.Sad that was a question....
i think it will look ok, afterall gta5 looks good both on ps3&360. the game looks fun, ps4 for me tho when i can find one that is..=)
Well duh ... You cant expect a last gen version to look current gen
Wii u has the same fillrate as PS3/360. 4.4gigapixels. Hence it will basically look the same, But could have better textures due to more ram.
He did not say it would look like the 360/ps3,he just said it would look closer to those than that of ps4/xbox one. It will probably look a little sharper than the last gen version but will still look pretty bad compared to pc or current gen.
That is a lie. The Wii U has a much higher fill rate than the PS3/360. That is why Project C.A.R.S. was dropped for the PS3/360 and not the Wii U. Also, most Wii U version of multiplats have higher res textures and further draw distances than the PS3/360.
Old news, this was said before.
Old news is old. Looks better than last gen but not as good as PS4. Mind blown. ----------------- 'Ubisoft Montreal creative director Jonathan Morin has said that Watch Dogs is a beautiful game to play on Wii U.' 'the game looks better on Wii U than on Xbox 360 or PS3, although it's not on a par with the next generation versions.' "I would say the Wii U version is pretty much in between what the current gen is and what the next gen is from a version standpoint," said Morin. "It's hard to position it. I would tend to say it's maybe a bit closer to current gen than next gen for certain things but it's a beautiful game on Wii U and it's cool to play it just on the GamePad." http://www.officialnintendo...
Hmmmm why won't you talk about Batman Arkham Knight now bein on the Wii U on YouTube?
Well to be honest, not even the PS4 version looks like it did before. So it's not surprising that my guess is WiiU will look like an Assassin's Creed game. Watchdogs was just to ambitious for all the consoles involved to look anywhere close to the e3 2012 version. Most of the WiiU owners want the game because it is probably one of the few must have games that actually uses the gamepad in a unique way.
What a stupid question. The WiiU will never, ever look like anything on the PS4. The PS4 operating at half power is still leaps and bounds more powerful than the WiiU. Silly little Nintendo fans.
And that matters because?.. That hasn't stopped it having great looking games like Mario 3D World or the upcoming Mario Kart 8, if anyone made any comments about them looking poor in the least they would be wrong. Look at what happened with the Dreamcast games vs the PS2 games graphics wise, 80-90% of them were comparable across both systems. And the PS2 was supposed to be much more powerful, but in the end did it make much difference other than having the advantage of bigger games on DVD? Not really. Besides if i want power & graphics, i have my PC for that. Which with a new video card would piss all over even the PS4, so i can make the same argument with PC vs PS4 if you want..
"The WiiU will never, ever look like anything on the PS4" PS4 Knack - http://www.blogcdn.com/slid... Wii-U Sonic Boom - http://www.nintendojo.com/w...
Sonic Boom is one good looking game! I thought it was running on PS4/XB1 using the Cry Engine before I knew it was Wii U exclusive.
I don't think so. I think Knack is better in physics and details. We need to see gameplay from Sonic Boom first. Either way, graphics is not that big of a deal in platform games.
Compare the vegetation in Knack VS. SB; that's just ONE difference. (Ugh, I can't believe I'm arguing in support of Knack...)
@Gamesgbkiller There is gameplay of it. Knack runs averages 30-40 fps with dips into the 20's - https://www.youtube.com/wat... Sonic Boom is going to be 1080p 60fps - http://n4g.com/news/1451162... The point is the guy who i replied to said nothing on the Wii-U would ever look as good as anything on the PS4, Sonic Boom easily compares to Knack visually.
"I think Knack is better in physics and details. We need to see gameplay from Sonic Boom first. " Way to contradict yourself.
Have you seen Mario Kart 8?
i bet you think ps4 is a true next gen console. one that cant even run battlefield 4 in full 1080p. my nes still has more better games and more life than any of these 8th gen consoles and PC
And that is why I have a PS4 next to my Wii-U.... My PS4 will dominate my time, & I will buy a game I want every now & then for my Wii-U, those unique Nintendo games.
Absolutely. Same here. I love exclusives from Nintendo and I couldn't live without Sony's exclusives. My Wii U and PS4 are in the entertainment room. My PS3 and Vita are in my bedroom.
@tornado in the store
Oh snap! He told you, Tornado
Well, I don't mean to offend anyone, but there are no Xbox exclusives I absolutely must have.
Yep PS4 and Wii U make an amazing team together. Wii U for the awesome Nintendo exclusives like SM3DW, Zelda, MK8, and Smash. PS4 for awesome Sony exclusives and everything else. I call it the best of both worlds.
Yep... same here. I dont see the need for an XboxOne when I already own the PS4/WiiU combo.
Yes, My PS4 is next to my Wii U, which is next to my XBONE. Halo & Titanfall made me do it. I never liked COD or BF.
I thought that Wii U GPGPU is a little bit powerful than 360/PS3? and has 2GB of RAM. The wii U version should look a bit better if not the best..
If not the best? The best out of what? PS3, 360, and Wii U? Because that's all that would make sense. And nobody said it wouldn't look better than last generation of platforms.
Oh, there I must correct you. Jonathan Morin said, it would be inbetween old gen and current gen, but a bit closer to old. Problem is, that all the haters come now and act like, it is just on par with Xbox360 and PS3, which is hilarious to think, but if you read the comments above, you will see, that there are enough people, who actually think it is just on par. Wii U has way more power than the old gen, it just doesnt have as much as PS4 or Xbox One does. Inbetween means, it is not the same as PS3 and Xbox360. A game like AC4 shouldve pretty much shown, that it is way more capable, really, anyone who has seen AC4 on Wii U knows, it has way more power than a PS3 or Xbox360. Some might not have ssen it and still stand for these outdated news about the Wii U or are just dumb haters, who would, even if there were a game that looks real next gen, deny it and hate on it about how shitty it looks. But read the comments from others, there are enough people on here, who think it is the same, not closer to, the same as PS3 and Xbox360 versions.
Sure until you realize that the 2GB of RAM in the system isn't fully useable by Devs; The OS and running of the gamepad alone eat up roughly half of that RAM. http://www.ign.com/wikis/wi...
You barely use the system ram anyway. Almost everything goes through the esram.
It doesn't eat half the ram. Half of it is PRESERVED for the OS. There is a huge difference. And that's still 1gig left for games whereas Ps3/360 use 512 for video as well as anything else.
Watch Dogs on last gen: less effects (way less) and worse textures, but it will look somewhat similar to current gen. That's my prediction. HOWEVER, Ubisoft, please, don't screw it again and don't release this on PS3, 360 and Wii U: http://www.youtube.com/watc... If you're going to do it, fine, but reduce the price on last gen and Wii U versions, because 65 dollars for an early 360 game it's an insult to me. BTW, I want a release date, not a statement that expresses something already known.
I agree, last gen games should be cheaper.
Really now, I have had it with you guys... It is the same freakin game on old and current gen, why should it be cheaper? Did they work less on it? Was it only half the work? Is graphics everything that takes time to make a game? OMG!
they always say graphics don't matter, then are always clamouring for better visuals, my advice is just get a P.S.4 or Xbox1 and keep the Wiiu for Nintendo games
Nah if you're that obsessed with graphics get a PC, because PS4 and XbOne are struggling themselves with full HD games. Not trying to spur hate, but for months fan boys have been crying about how these new systems will put out high end graphics on the levels of gaming PC's and that's just not the case.
Clamouring for better graphics? We just want games to look like it uses the power correctly of the Wii U, then we defend here, that there are haters here, who actually use the words of Jonathan Morin, who said it would be inbetween old and current gen, but closer to current and make a the Xbox360 version looks just as, good out of it. And then you ask why we defend...
Totally fine with me, AC 4 looked best on Wii U vs 360/PS3, and in my mind the U is last gen powerwise. So bring it on, I am totally happy with that level of graphics !
i agree, my main focus is seeing those Gamepad controls that make it unique on the Wii U
Bad port confirmed. Jokes aside, I don't mind if it looks bad, just needs to use the Wii U's unique features well and I'll get it.
It wont look BAD. It'll just look closer to last gen, which looks GOOD. That said I'm getting the PS4 version.
Well sine AC4 is by far the best looking 3rd party game on Wii U hopefully they can reach that level. Idk after the recent videos though. Certainly not preordering with all this up in the air and no release date.
This information has been twisted to make it sound like bad news. READ THE LINK IN THIS POST!!!!! Reported story for being old... ... very, very, very old. http://n4g.com/news/1369906... So it's gone full-circle. Ubisoft confirm Wii U version isn't cancelled (like a lot of people where almost on their knees praying for to happen - because they're, like, weirdos), so N4G parasites are determined to play on and twist any info they can find to try and put DOOOOOM on it and dig up and twist old information from months ago. Some people just lead very sad lives.
They should just cancel last gen ports (WiiU, 360 and ps3) altogether and focus on the definitive versions instead. ;)
You really are the O'Reilly of this website. Good grieve.
Gee there's a big surprise..
The important thing about the wii u version are the gamepad features... who cares if the textures etc aren't as sharp. For that i have a pc which will always look better than any console game. The wii u is all about gameplay and innovative controls. I hope they release some kind of trailer that will show how the gamepad is used. I'm gonna wait for the wii u version if they so it right. Otherwise I go for the pc version, which will be the best in terms of graphic s and framerate.
No shit, only fanboy tards on here think its next gen
Would you care explaining how it's NOT next-gen?
Don't feed the trolls. They don't actually want to have a legitimate conversation.
I'm not mad, I just want a fun game!
It better run at a darn good frame-rate then.
30fps I'm guessing. Same as every other console version.
It's gonna bomb hard on the peeyew, I don't even understand why they keep supporting that console. Nintendo is in trouble.
You do realize that Nintendo has another platform way more successful than the Wii U with the 3DS? And you do also realize that the Vita is also bombing ( improving as of late) along with half of sonys other divisons? Sony is in more trouble financially than Nintendo since they don't nearly have the cash reserve Nintendo does. Also the WiiU could be a price drop and Mario Kart 8 away from picking up to out pace the X1. World wide right now it is almost on pace with the sales numbers of the x1.. In the end there is no shame with second place if you are profitable.
