Team Ninja reveals developing for Wii U is easy and is comparable to developing for PS3/360, Nintendo is listening to third-party feedback and changing the hardware, Dead or Alive 5 is possible on the console, and more.
"Team Ninja reveals developing for Wii U is easy and is comparable to developing for PS3/360" Good to know. This means that devs will be able to easily port games and squeeze power out of the system since it's architecture is similar.
How much do you want to bet people will twist that into "Wii U is comparable in power to PS3/360?" ...and yes it's good to know. I do hope they put DOA5 on there. Dimensions was the first DOA I played but the good thing is I'm actually more up to date than the people who only played the main ones!
"How much do you want to bet people will twist that into "Wii U is comparable in power to PS3/360?" Exactly what I was thinking man lol. Hopefully we see a few people say that so we can get a few laughs.
this proves without doubt that the WiiU isn't any more powerful than the 360/PS3 ............................. .. .............................. . .............................. . .............................. . .............................. . .......................j/k
to be honest guys at this moment they havent showed us anything that wowed any one so in my mind i think its like the wii ,the power of 2 gamecubes, but now the power of 2 360. And second you shouldnt blame the people for making these assumptions since nintendo chose to show the console so early on without any demos to show expect third party games
This game is going to be a port from current-gen HW so it doesn't count, really don't care what they're saying right now, unless they're making the game for Wii-U first and then port it to the others, but this is not the case, we'll need to wait at least a year for Third Parties to step up and makes with Wii-U HW in mind @kratos123 Hmm... you missed the Zelda Demo right?
When I saw the Zelda demo, my mouth dropped. It looked like CGI. It was perfect. I did not see a flaw with it and I wouldn't mind if games couldn't look any better. It was a dream. The demo with the bird flying was also impressive. The part where the bird kicked the snow off the roof or branch was ridiculously realistic. I don't know why people hate the WiiU so much. It is looking really good. I don't know about software but hardware is good. What really excites me is that the WiiU will probably be the weakest console next gen. I can't wait to see what Sony has.
@ShoryukenII: The only problem with the Zelda demo is that it's all rendered in a small confined space, there's no need for streaming new assets and all the animations are pre-determined. Yes it looks great and it would be awesome if they could make a game looking that good, but it's only a show-off demo and because of that I don't find it as impressive. I think it could be done on a PS3 and possibly on a 360 too. But it does bode well for what we might possibly see coming on the console.
That is very good. It can get a bunch of ports from this gens great games like a Bioshock collection and it can get lead development for third party games next gen because its easy to develop for
But is any of this really good though? Do you want a bunch of ports of older games for your new console, if you haven't played them before then yes. But if you have.... And having what will most likely be the weakest next-gen console as lead platform for next-gen multiplatform titles isn't really a good thing.
Even if Wii U is only as powerful or a little more than PS3/360 - Mario and DKC in HD will be welcome indeed.
isnt it obvious it would be easy? its 5 years late and is just a little bit stronger than the current consoles, its almost the same thing lol. its not a bad thing though ofcourse
Here we go guys.... We have one of these guys. HA!
here's an idea. why don't you take your one bubble over to a Sony only game site, hmmm?
N4g is a sony only site.
Pro-sony, but not Sony only
is there any new Wii U tech demos?
There were a few at last years e3.
Don't believe tech demos for consoles. The original Killzone trailer was a tech demo and while the full game got impressively close in SOME area's, in was a far cry in terms of explosion effects, smoke and fire effects and facial animation, and the rest in general were a little worse(although still great). Tech demo's of Ps3 looked close to CGi quality in other words. So they shouldn't be believed.
I personally think its a good thing for the WiiU that development is feeling comperable to platforms already being used. Should translate into easy ramp up for the WiiU titles. One thing I did feel was a bit odd at this stage in the game was the comment that the hardware was still constantly changing. At this stage with a launch supposedly happening sometime after E3 you would think that would be finalized.
More than likely we'll know more about that in the form of an official announcement. Supposedly final dev kits were sent out, but who knows what the final product will be.
Hopefully i wanna see Mario Donkey kong zelda smash bros in HD And maybe a Mario galaxy 3 i think that would be an amazing looking game in 1080p HD.
Wow, its a pretty big relief that its easy to port.
1 year ago WiiU Iwata's words as powerful as HD4850 2x360/ps3 Now at present its 5x 360/ps3 Still not final oh the developer that claimed 2x as powerful said this a year ago in a statement he's just said IGN are right the WiiU at present is 5x as powerful and its still not final. HD4850 was where the WiiU power was in its 1st dev-kits in March,its a different story now and in final build think more than 6x ps3/360 these are FACTS that developers seem to agree with.
I am thinking no matter what the specs are games will be on level with Crysis PC and Battlefield 3 PC or better graphics wise. Out of all the rumors specs I have heard there isn't one that puts this out of question. I don't know if WiiU will be more powerful than Xbox 720 or PS4 though. If it isn't my bet is that it will be the CPUs fault. That is generally Nintendo's weak point. Still though quality of games will be drastically different from the Wii even if that is the case.
I just want to see the first WiiU exclusive game
i dont care as if it doesnt play native 1080p im not buying it
