Checkout the graphics showcase video of Wii U on E3 2011
Yeah.....that video was sort of lame. And considering that there wasn't actually any gameplay, the graphics really weren't THAT impressive.
I know. They tried to make the CGI video look like real gameplay footage. At-least Sony did a better job at it. The graphics look like the 360 and the PS3. I think Sony and MS don't have anything to worry about.
Thats only the controller PPL its a full console here it is http://www.engadget.com/201... i dont know why but that conference was confusing as hell
Exactly they focused to much on the controller and the graphics aren't that great and no word on a online service
As good as any PS3/360 launch title. You'll have to give them a chance to tap the hardware.
The Vita is much more powerful than this.
@Sunhammer Are you mad?
MAN WA IS WI DA CONTROLLER?? wdf, i liked somehow the wii controller but this thing is like WAY TOO BIG, vita owned it all. Vita name better than WiiU lol
They need to release the specs of the console imo, since as i already said, i think developers are just developing the games for the console since they just showed trailers of the games they already developing. I think it was too early for the to unveil the console.
That is CGI Video.
Weak...Is that supposed to be an HD??
Does it have bluray? That console sitting by the tv looks different than the wii.
i have a feeling the wiiU will have a console hub that plugs into telly with the wiiU controller as the controller obviously
it is different check joystiq for high quality pic of the new console, Im guessing the rumored specs involving bluray and ati graphics card are true
I dont see what you guys are complaining about. They're doing the very thing you all have been asking, bi***** and whinening about for all this time, hardcore games.
Yes nintendo went games first 3rd party to be exact the graphics look good and its not even the tip of the iceburg
if that bird video was just early footage sony and microsoft need to do something next e3
You mean an HD video being shown? FFXIII has 1080p cut scenes on PS3 that look like that.
its a new console o.o its a tech demo why are people acting this way cause it seems kinda hypocritical
I think the development for this console is too early on, so they showed that it can do the current hd games, since even nintendo didnt have anything to show.
I guess thats what im thinking but if they were going to announce it they shouldnt have done it this way. They spent all the time trying to sell the controller aspect of it and left us COMPLETELY hanging on the actual console. They couldve had at least had 1 flagship title ready to showcase like what sony did with KZ2 before ps3 released. I was waiting on the rumored pokemon RPG showing or even just a suped up res of mario running... and from the vids of the current games running on the system they looked completely disappointing and not on par w/ the current consoles 360/ps3. I was let down tbh and think Nintendo rushed the announcement of it.
Bad video quality, loved that zelda wiiU showcase tho
skyward sword didn't look bad with the wiiu version
I'm confused. It's the controller the console itself? It's a plugin for the wii? if it's -and I hope not-, then, why the EA guy told us that the graphics are HD and amazing, and games like Ninja Gaiden 3 are coming? And then, why every developer talk about it as a new console... except for nintendo? How do I plug in to the TV to get HD? Doest the wii do it? It's the wii the proxy? Where do I put the DVD's? I'm officially confused. But, still.... that name sucks.
there is a new system connected to the tv. watching the g4tv interview with reggie right now and he saying that they didn't showcase their system since the innovation is within the controller and not the hub itself.
thanks for the info. I'm feeling alive now.
they need to show the system that this controller is gonna sync too...glimpses in the videos but no explanation?
like with a fighting or racing game so that we can see that the wireless connection is fast enough to keep up with U and the console (and what's on the TV)
Was anyone watching the same conference I was? Forget the tech demo, all those ports looked awful. NG3 didn't even look close to a PS3 version. Tekken looked even worse.
so your sure developers are maxing out this wii u, as they have probably just gotten early prototype development kits to make a quick video, lets see if your saying all this next e3 when theyve had time with a more complete wii u and polished up games and had time to learn to use the architecture
if it is not MANDATORY 1080p with at LEAST 4x anti aliasing , they can f-off, we already got 2 sub-hd consoles that are covered in jaggies. It better be full hd 1080p at all times or i have no intrest whatsoever, looks like pc will be the only place to game in hd for yet another year or 2
lol pc you are the master of overrating that pc its not a special platform out in the front of the pack
it is a whole generation ahead of anything on console and has been for the last 2-3 years true 1080p, 1200p, 1440p, 1600p vs 540p,576p,600p,620p,640p,658p, 720p jaggies everywhere vs. 64x anti aliasing yeah....it's practically 2 generations ahead of ps3 and 360 @mamotte, hows that ONE mmo you got on console working??? is it free to play yet...iut will be on pc soon... DC online is worse than the top 50 free to play pc mmo's, it is utter crap! how bout all those rts games? Wow those all run at 10 frames per second....AMAZING!!! strategy??-there are none flight sim- lol @ hawks 4x games-civ revolution and ummmm......ummmmm. lol....the pc library utterly DECIMATES 360 and ps3's library, and soon, very soon, every single "exclusive" xbox360 and ps3 game will be on pc in actual hd when they are emulated like every other gen of consoles has been.. ...guess what, besides the pc back-catalog that goes back over 20 years...yes....pc is the only platform that is truly backward compatible, i can play nearly every nintendo, super nintendo, n64, sega genisis, sega 32, ps1,ps2, and gamecube game on pc too!!! in actual hd 1080p, so i am actually playing ps2 games on pc in higher resolutions than you are playing ps3 games.....lol....what was that you were saying about games??? the consoles library is trash besides maybe 2-4 good exclusives a year,,....other than that you get the shittiest, lowest resolution, jaggie, pop-infested version of all multiplats and you have to pay $10-$20 more for it,./....yeah....consoles are so awesome....
PC will always be generations ahead of consoles, but there is a cost to pay for it if you want to keep up with it. My two year old PC can run all of the latest games, but I stagger when running The Witcher 2 in full mode at 1200p and I likely won't be able to run BF3 at full spec. If I wanted that, I'd have to spend at least $200, more likely $400, to get that capability at this time. Sure, I can buy a $700 PC right now that can run games better than consoles, but you're talking about running way ahead of consoles, which is where there are costs involved that are much greater than paying $300 for a console for a very good result over 6-10 years.
And still, lack good games from consoles. How sad. Console's game library it's far better than PC; no matter if it's on HD or what.
im sorry but you wont see me running out buying a system that has graphics no different then whats allready out there.. and controllers that probably cost 100$ or more..
It's not a next gen console. They should have just kept the motion controls and add HD and call it Wii HD. I'm not feeling the new controller.
... I’ll wonder if they’ll do a stealth announcement? They tend to announce one big thing after their conference is over...
Confirmed 1080p graphics.
lol the golf and baseball games looked appalling. really great use of interface between controller and tv.. but fucking shit graphics! what are nintendo thinking!? i give up on nintendo
Hey, it's killzone 2.
A lot of people are complaining about the graphics. I'm willing to bet a majority of the comments came from people watching streaming video on the web. I don't have cable so I can't watch G4 or whatever it is, but web streaming is never as good as seeing something first hand.
ps4 and xbox 720 will be able to run epics samaritan demo in REALTIME so if this is what the wii 2 can do then nintendo will be in the same position they where with the wii when the TRUE 8th gen consoles come out. Not hating, you all know its true
