FIFA producer Tim Tschirner has said that he believes the Nintendo Wii matches up to the first Xbox in terms of power. Click the link.
quit your bellyaching it's not hurting you physically is it?
lol yeah, I was thinking that too. If its as powerful as a last gen console its not really next gen IMO.
hahahahahahaahahahahahahahahah ahaahahahaha heheheheheheheehehee?? FIFA producer???? Bloody footballers, what the hell do they know?? Dumb Bastards.
Quote from article: "The video hardware unfortunately is not as powerful. There's just a couple of key things that you can do on Xbox like shaders which you just cannot do on the Wii... Overall though it's pretty much what the original Xbox was." This means the Wii is a modified Gamecube. No shaders on Wii. No game on Wii can match Halo 1.
well i think the wii is the only next gen console because it brought a new concept the motion sensor controles and you can say ps3 has it too but the ps3 version cant compare to the wii's excution of it, and the wii was never ment to be a power house nintendo said that from day 1 they wernt out to compete for the best graphics, but the wii is smashing the competors.
Woudl you stop using my gamertag you idiot!?
That's probably true if not more powerful, its a shame that Nintendo keep releasing games that don't even try to push the graphics to the limit. It's kinda obvious Nintendo's goals weren't to make the most powerful system, just to concentrate on gameplay and penetrating the market.
I don't know .. did he mean Wii is as good or as bad as Xbox 1 ?
I can believe it's as powerful as the Xbox but I don't think Nintendo cares or the people who buy it. I think buyers are looking for fun through game play with "good enough" graphics. If this is a guys console (or gal) that is looking to play the Halo's and Metal Gear type games then you're parents did you wrong and you need to go have a talk with them. This system is made for friends and parties.
unlike most on here, my parents don't buy me sh*t i pay for my toys. have since i could work some 11yrs ago. even before that, i'ld work for systems and games but i'll agree with u. it's a fun party system and will show it's potential and more fun with time
Cuco33, you're a 70's baby just like me and my parents haven't bought me anything in a long time so my 360 and PS3 came out of my pocket so I feel your pain. I don't know how much potential the Wii has but it will have a lot of competition during this Christmas so I hope the Wii is ready for war.
From what I've seen so far, the Xbox 1 is more powerful than the Wii, and the Xbox played games in 720p.
Then check Scarface out. Even the developer said the visuals on the Wii are better then the Xbox's..
Wait until you see Metroid. I've seen it live and I'm pretty sure the Xbox couldn't have handled it.
didn't we already know this?
......and in chimes the voice of reason! This is seriously old news.
yes we did.... But it is posted so all the xbox and ps fans can flame the Wii ... Even though the Wii is kicking their ass all over the place. Since i have all 3 in my house when we get to drinking with friends over we are always playing WiiSports... Because it is easy to pick up and alot of fun for 4 people and it is fun as hell to play when drunk. It is new-gen (next gen is the Xbox Next and PS4.... can you all get that into your heads already that all the consoles are released and hence are new-gen or current gen????) because it is an improvement on their last console. There isn't an industry standard that says ... "You must be this tall to be current console gen" Get over yourselves already and play the freaking games. What you like is what you like. Maybe you might like all 3.. only 2... maybe you will never try the other 2... Stop acting like a bunch of 2 year olds and trying to justify yourself to people on a website full of people you will most likely never meet. You never know you might be a "Xbot" and find out you like alot of other stuff some of the hated "PS3 idiots" likes. But we chose to war over the BS of console gaming.
lucidmantra i couldnt agree more. I am all about owning all 3 myself and i also do pc gaming. Each one has a few games i want to play and then a bunch of trash i dont want to play. I guess i am more into games than systems.
Lucidmantra thanks for saying it in a nice way. Unlike my rants ><
Bubble-up Lucidmantra, well-said.
in this day and age. This is sad. This is another reason why the Wii will have no shelf space in my home.
I really don't get this at all. Why is it such a gawd awful thing for a console to have decent graphics compaired to eye popping graphics? It isn't! Just say you don't like Nintendo quit trying to blame the Wii over your unkown reasoning you hate a company that wants to bring games to people.
Anyone that doesn't like the Wii will talk about it's graphics...then say it has no online support and then say no HD support. They can't figure out why the Wii is selling..so they do whatever they can to knock it.
Nothing about the Wii is next generation in terms of console power and the ability to provide a ground breaking immersive gameplay experience. But it's fun, and it's a blast at parties and that makes it a winner. I would just never play the Wii by myself.
They say wii is about gameplay but I'm sorry my friend has one a i played it many times and it is NO WAY something i would pick up to play for fun maybe if i had 3 other people its just not interesting and the motion sensing is not all that accurate. The graphics are not whats horrible about the console its about the ridiculously kiddie games there are for it. Im tellin you SO MANY people have rushed to buy this system and awhile after they have there going to realize it wasnt all that and forget about it.
i finally made a good story @ps360wii ya lol funny
hey we almost got the same name ^^
That's a mixed blessing. Being as powerful as the Xbox isn't a bad thing...it was capable of pushing some serious pixels...but when stacked up against the power of the 360 and the PS3, it comes up short. It's a new-gen system with last-gen technology. And people don't seem to care. Nintendo hit the gaming sweet spot for price and mass appeal, and though some think that its dated technology is laughable, it's Nintendo that's laughing...all the way to the bank. (My 10,000th NFG point)
Here is the thing with the wii; if you are having a party (a non sausage party) and you bring up video games the room will quickly become divided and you run the risk of alienating people thus killing the party. In many ways video games are a party taboo. If you bring up the wii everyone is down to play. 90% of girls (you know those things that most of you just look at on the net) want nothing to do with the ps3 or 360 but you bring up the wii and all of a sudden they show interest. Personally i think playing games with chicks is a worth while compromise for so so graphics, most of the time when I play it I am too drunk to care about the graphics anyway. Once upon a time all games had bad graphics and it didn’t stop them from being fun. Plus it will have Metroid Prime 3.
exactly... some people will never see the forest through the trees though ... things must have cutting edge graphicsw for them to care. That is why we still stomache games that control like garbage but have nice graphics. the motion sensing for the the Wii is really pretty accurate (for the above poster) always when i get the Wii going about 10 mins after someone plays it for the first time they want to play MORE.. then 10 mins after that a massive good natured junk-talking session breaks out... and it makes the party that much funner. Sorry for all of you out there who can't get past the graphics and the fact it doesn't need 8 SPEs to be spanking your console like a child who got into the cookies in your home market.
The Wii and DS are the only consoles my girl will play. As soon as I hop on my PC or Xbox for gaming, she calls me a nerd haha. It seems to be all about the intuitive controls and the type of games. She likes the brain-development games, minigames, and some Mario games (she doesn't like Paper Mario but likes New Super Mario Bros for the DS). She would never be interested in an FPS or racing sim which I guess is why I get called out when I play FPSs on my PC lol. Most ppl on this site will not understand the Wii's appeal which is very unfortunate. Makes me wonder though, with the Wii being a very "social" gaming machine, how many of the ppl that diss it also spend 99% of their gaming time locked up in their room by themselves?
if Wii is the same as Xbox then.... i was thinking of something: Xbox used Direct x for texturing and stuff which sucked up the memory, Wii is using ram more efficient so wouldn't that make the Wii better? as in its more capable of doing the work better? and yes Xbox 1 had 720p for some games, but @ 480P you will have more calculation power from the GPU..so..... >_> ya get my point but infact i dun care! i want my Nintendo franchise..otherwise i didn't had one in the first place.
