Today, Capcom released the first images of the Wii version of Dead Rising, which was announced at E3. Some of the images appear to be coming from cutscenes and look better then the others.

Yeah, I don't see how people without an HDTV were able to play the 360 version.

I can only imagine how fun dead rising is gonna be on wii seeing as i havent got one.

deeznuts3773d ago

I have a Wii. And just bought a 360. Should I get this game? Wait? I'm a graphics whore (why give it up if you don't have to?) so ...

With the exception of the lower resolution, it looks very similar to Xbox 360 version.

I want to see gameplay mechanics....

Grephics deparment is kinda "out of my interest" when the Wii comes to my mind.

Dead Rising never pushed the 360, but those look too good to be on Wii.

I'm one achievement away from 1000 achievements on the Xbox 360 version. So I've had many hours staring at the 360 version. It's obvious by the resolution and the low res texture maps that this isn't the 360 version. But for the Wii, this looks top notch. I re-bought Resident Evil 4 for the Wii and it was worth re-experiencing. I intend on re-buying Dead Rising for Wii. I'm sure it will be good.

Those are Xbox 360 images. I attached Xbox 360 images which are similar or identical!

The Carlito pic is from The Isabella pic and Chopper pic is from http://www.visualwalkthroug...

All the Cut Scenes are video from the 360 version.
The gameplay is actually Wii graphics.

These were presented as "images from the Wii version". Also, if you look at the Isabella images. They are literally the same. The 360 cut-scenes were 100% real time. Even if the Wii uses video for the cut-scenes, the resolution will be 480p max. The image of Isabella should look blurrier, but it doesn't.

capcom often get the best out of hardware they have had alot of practice with similar hardware with the graphically amazing (for the time) resi evil games character models are as good as resi evil 0/4 but am having trouble imagining this quality with 3000 plus zombies.

iamtehpwn3773d ago (Edited 3773d ago )

That is roughly 480. 480 itself isn't really "blurry", its just that typically lower resolution textures are used, so it looks blurry. The cut scenes were Real time in the 360 version, However, they it appears obvious they are recording video of the cut scenes, and then putting them on the disc.

If that was the case, then by that logic, if you watched a movie like Advent Children on DVD (Which is 480), it would look terrible. But it doesn't (not as good as it would at 720 or 1080), However, it's because of the high resolution textures and rendering that it looks soft.

Dead Rising runs at 720p or higher on 360 (1280x720). The Wii is 480p (640x480).

I said "blurrier". 480p is blurrier than 720p, yet the supposed Wii images look identical to the 360 pics.

in some pictures it had almost decieved me that this is the 360 version...but then if you look closely you see that this is the Wii version.( and in some pictures the colors are very different...maybe they use different shaders...or maybe none ;-) )
The Faces and the models are looking REALLY good

A kick a$$ game that i never thought would come to the it! :D
