Wii graphics being pushed to their "fullest potential" in FFCC: The Crystal Bearers

Outside of first-party Nintendo titles, the Wii hasn't been home to the most graphically superior games. MadWorld, Monster Hunter 3, and The Conduit are a few products that come to mind, but there aren't a ton of other titles that stand out visually.

I heard Pong already did that on the Wii :)

Isn't this a duplicate story? Oh wait, that was The Conduit...

for god sake just stop it already! I know it's cool to be able to push anything to the limit like getting as many fps in games by overclocking CPU and GPU on PCs but this is nothing to be proud of! in the end, nobody cares! this is not like What GoW2 on PS2 'partially' did with the looks that matched earlier 360 games because 360 and PS3 are well established already and I doubt anybody will be impressed by the looks of any Wii games anymore - might as well never EVER again at least as long as the Wii stays non-HD!

the Wii is a non-HD console and no game will look as stunning as those on HD consoles but is this a totally bad thing? no! the Wii is unique in its own ways and while being non-HD, some Wii games manage to sell millions for what they are in terms of control, gameplay and art styles and not to forget long-time running franchises! the conduit is pushing the Wii but does it sell? no, it FLOPPED! I think Wii devs should just stop trying to compete with HD devs in terms of gfx but instead focus on at least making their games look pretty and most importantly cater to the majority of Wii owners in order for them to sell!

It's embarrassing that most devs haven't pushed the Wii beyond what the GC did (even more embarrassing to not live up to GC graphics).

Galaxy and Corruption looked great. Conduit had the tech, but not the art style (while MadWorld had all the style, but in a short, niche game). Other M, MH3, RS2 and Shattered Memories all look promising. Maybe we can add FFCC to that list.

"I think Wii devs should just stop trying to compete with HD devs "

Exactly because HD devs spend SOOO much money and cant even surpass mario kart. I agree.

"in terms of gfx but instead focus on at least making their games look pretty"

Wellit works for Paris Hilton. Just look pretty. Thats all anywayone really cares about. Too bad that shes an idiot.

"and most importantly cater to the majority of Wii owners in order for them to sell!"

Ahh i think they have heaps of games that sell really well (just because they are not a FPS's doesnt mean that they are not games). Monster hunter 3 was the most recent one (of many).

It is not about pushing the graphics now it is about art direction. That is what console gaming has always been about.

I had a Wii first and didn't really care about the graphics, until I got my PS3 and Xbox 360. Now I can't stand to look at a Wii game.

Wii should be considered to be at the end of the last generation, not the start of this one. A GameCube 2.0.

Well throw out all those classic ps2 games then because they would be REALLY crap by now. O and dont play any DS games because thats basically 64 bit. O and dont play any supernes, mega drive, psOne, nes games again because you may not consider them pretty (in your "logic" that is).

killzone 2 just wont be the same once the next ps is released i fear. It will flat out, ..suck.

I thought The Conduit was supposed to push the graphics?

*EDIT* I thought I heard "next-gen grahpics on the wii" in reference to The Conduit.

ShabzS3417d ago (Edited 3417d ago )

dont know about graphics but they seem to have nailed the fps control scheme for shooters on the wii

akaFullMetal3417d ago

it will still look like crap unfortunately , I hope the wii 2 or whatever goes hd.

jsslifelike3417d ago

... but if they do not upgrade the hardware at all, 720p isn't going to be a savior to anyone.

Your kidding, right? I'm sure you have atleast seen the trailer. If not then you had better.
