Maxconsole.net claim they have got their hands on the full specs of the Wii. Dont expect to be blown away but its interesting none the less.
what all the sony cult will have to say, when nintendo starts to run a 'mockery' of the ps3??
lol who cares about them,their sections are always empty..too kiddy i quess hehe!!
I would like to see more of a gamer out of you and less of a fan boy. The fan boy look is wak dog. I like what they are doing with the Wii. And you should have love for them too. Nintendo has had nothing negative to say about the PS3. Just take it in stride bro. There is no more hype behind the PS3 any more. It is put up or shut up time for them. And so far they are falling back. Do not get me wrong if the thing comes out and it is sweet I will wait 2 years for the price drop. If you do not most of wont care but you should be a real gamer and jump in.
what`s ur problem with me bro?Easy i got nuttin agaist u..i`m waving the white flag..chill
I just like a lot of your opinions. And really think if you took a look at what Sony is doing to the industry we both love you would not defend them so much. To make a long story short when you post decent info it is well respected. But you responded to dc like you had to defend Sony real quick. Dc is known for slamming Sony but I think most of us have good reason to. But dude I do not hate you or anything I just can tell you have a lot to share and wish you applied it properly. Sony is strangling the video game industry right now and I love Sony it is just supposed to be honor and honesty but they are showing none at all they are pulling wool over every ones eye and using our loyalty against us. Just check out what they are doing in china. http://www.news4gamers.com/...
ign released what they thought were the specs several months ago and looks like they were right.
so the Wii is slightly more powerful then the orginal xbox.
the orginal xbox ran at 733mhz. it is the other features that make the Wii next gen (like usb connections). the xbox also had a faster GPU.
So actually they could price the wii at less than the going rate for xbox 1.
considering its running at 480p it has more than enough power.
1. will it have a build in hard drive and how many GB?
2. is this console really gen interms of the hardware and processor?
Wtch nintendos e3 press conference
I’m happy with these specs. If indeed, they are genuine. Compared to the PS2, GCN was far more superior. Both in load times and with graphical potential. GCN has shown a set of games that don’t only play well, but also look pretty damn sweet. And they do look much better on the GCN than they do, once they’ve been ported, on the PS2. (I haven’t touched an Xbox title, so I’ll stay away from that)
We all know Nintendo is still preparing for the HD era. Right now HD isn’t the norm (give or take 5-7 years), so Nintendo has the right to exclude it from the current gen features. While x360 and ps3 focus more on HD graphics… while only a handful own an HD set, Nintendo is just trying to get a console out there for typical gamers to enjoy. [It’s funny how people want the next best thing in HD gaming while they don’t own an HD set. You have to spend oodles of money on both the gaming system, and a tv system to fully enjoy it.]
Only problem with GCN was that there weren’t many developers supporting it. Same thing will happen with Wii. You won’t see many titles, but what you’ll see will be great quality titles. Enjoyable titles. :)
I think right now Nintendo is the only company that cares more about quality rather than quantity. Sony rushes, and there will be flaws. Microsoft rushed and now they’re trying to package component upgrades. Nintendo is taking its time giving gamers what they really want. A great, affordable and a stylish gaming unit. Just like the DS. :D
You just can’t lose with a Nintendo Product. :D It’s the way to go if you got kids and you want them to enjoy games rather than enjoy the view. :D
Wii isn't exactly next gen. It's new gen. Next gen = upped graphics and upped system. New gen = new way of playing games. New way of enjoying games. While ps3 and x360 have taken the same approach they did back when ps2 and xbox came to the table, and only upgraded the system/graphics. (Nothing new but a coat of paint) Nintendo has redesigned a style of game play. When HD becomes the current gen we'll see new consoles that will take that into consideration. Nintendo knows the mass populous doesn't own HDtv's so they know it's rather foolish adding next gen graphics that won't be seen or enjoyed by more than thousands of people. Only when HD becomes the standard we’ll see the Wii the way it was meant to be seen.
In 5/6 years when new consoles come. Nintendo will release a new version of the Wii that will take HD graphics to the NEW level. :D
Guys...what are you talking about? The Wii's gonna go Gamecube on us and die out about 3 months after launch. WHO HERE THINKS PS2 PORTS LOOK WORSE? GO PLAY RE4 ON GC, THEN, ON PS2. WHICH ONE LOOKS BETTER? HUH? Go play NFS: Most Wanted on GC, then on PS2. My main beef is that graphics don't MATTER to that many people...and even SONY knows that, they just want the ultimate gaming experience for their gamers. By the way...does everyone have their tv set to "one size fits all"? Because the tv has to be positioned in front of the gamer...between their neck and waist. I think i'll just get PS3's sweet eyetoy...and move that. NOT MY TV! There's no Harddrive...how are you guys gonna download games on the net? HOW?
I HATE to say this, because i LOVE nintendo, but it's not gonna last if it pulls this crap it is. The Nintendo lines were longer at E3 because Nintendo doesn't know how to play fair. They set it all up to where only 3 people could get in at a time. I KNOW. I was at the Sony booth the WHOLE time it happened. Anyone here played Warhawk yet? Why get a wii when i can get the best AI, the best graphics, the best games, the best movies, the most content on a game (due to blu-ray), and the biggest outlook for the future?
You’re just a comedian. You make me laugh out loud. I like you.
RE4 does look better on the GCN. No comparisons. PS2 port was lousy. And thank god for that. Showed that GCN is a whole lot better console for games and graphics than PS2 could ever be. :D
Major developers like EA don’t give a f@#k about tiny consoles like the GCN. They go where the money is. Xbox and PS2. They want to sell their products rather than shelf them. That’s why some ports on the GCN are sluggish. Games solely made for the GCN and simply amazing, astonishing, and all in all, much more enjoyable than those expensive putrid titles for PS2. It’s not fanboyism talking, it’s experience. :)
Graphics do matter to a whole lot of people. Graphics matter more than gameplay these days. Some people, I call them Spoiled Stans, can’t enjoy a game unless they’re playing it on the highest settings with an above average frame rate. They also want HD gaming. Not because the game MIGHT play better on an HD set, but because it will LOOK better.
Why? Because they want to believe that they’ve got the biggest balls around in the gaming world. They want to brag. It’s a very competitive world. There are those who’d rather play (that number is getting smaller by the year), but others simply want the best. (That number is rising) Mostly because true gamers are growing old, while eye candy gamers have still got their hands on their parent’s wallet.
You say you love Nintendo yet you show so much hatred for it, as if you were afraid of it. What are you afraid of? That’s it’s a superior console compared to the PS3? Not graphics wise of course, but fan base and game base wise. The lines at Nintendo were still longer. Doesn’t matter if they pulled tricks or not. People still came there to see. Then they came back. Because people loved what they saw. You can’t ignore these results and the results are; Nintendo dominated E3. I thought that was evident? I’m sorry if it wasn’t.
PS3 will fail because of BLUray. It has poor encoding for video. It’s still a child. It hasn’t fully developed yet. Full of bugs and issues it’s so immature. And it’s bloody expensive. While hdDVD has been perfected. For either Sony or Microsoft to win the medium race, the public has to decide what to get, either two expensive players, or gaming systems, or just one. And not everyone has the money to buy two. One system will be left in the dust, and with x360 out there right now, Sony will be…stuck behind. Hell, BLUray died ages ago. Critics love HDdvds. Crisp. Clear. Fantastic. While BLUray… is VCD to SVCD (hdDVD)
It’s easy. If BLUray fails, then Sony has to redesign the console to work with hdDVD based games. (A dead format means a dead system) That means a recall. BLUray will fail unless it’s perfected for PS3 lunch. And I don’t think that will happen. If it does happen. Then yes, I support it. If not, then it’s just another Sony product.
And no, Sony doesn’t give a damn about gamers. Sony never cared about its customers. PS3 is just a money cow. It has no innovation. It’s just a supped up ps2. No use forking over 600 smackaroos on a non-innovative console that has nothing new but graphics.
Oh, and also Sony products are worthless. Speakers, headsets, TVs… you name it. Sony has taken its name fame and abused it. Poor quality products that are very expensive.
I hate Sony fan boys. They fail to see the inferiority in the products because it’s a Sony. I hope PS3 fails. It has what? Three lunch titles? MGS4 is due out next year. Final Fantasy will only appeal to the true fans. What else you‘ve got?
i got really excited with this WII but really i`m loosing interest..i`m thinikin ok gettin this for a second console but it has to prove more when i`ts finally launched..i might go get one 2 yrs after..
Wii is meant to be a secondary console. Nintendo couldn't stretch that out enough for people to finally understand it.
It’s a next gen era and wii is a new gen system. You aren’t buying it for the graphics like you would buy the x360 or the ps3. You’re buying it as a secondary console. To play it when the time is right, or when you’re into something innovative and exciting and enjoyable.
That’s all. Nintendo doesn’t want people to just get the wii. They want people to make it a secondary console. They want people to enjoy both systems not just one. That’s why Nintendo isn’t in the race. They know people will buy the console. And that’s all they want.
