Wish I could reply to your reply but I'll do it here. You're right, I think it's because some of the screens show a very zoomed out view, so you're not getting as much detail as you would from behind the Karter. The Cheese Land image is a good representation though, I think. #9.4
Mario Kart 8 doesn't use any antialiasing whatsoever, so regardless of the rendering resolution there will always be jaggies around the polygons.

If we were to view the 5k images on a high-ppi monitor at 2880p (the latest iMac has 5k on a 27" display), then the pixels would be small enough that you don't notice the jaggies anyway.

But if you zoom into 100% and view a small portion of the 2880p image at whatever monitor you're using (mine'... #9.3
I definitely appreciate the sentiment made on this piece -- it does suck that every 3DS owner can't play Xenoblade.

However, the main argument behind it is technically based around factually incorrect information:

"Now I know why Nintendo decided to do this and that was to promote the Nintendo Amiibo feature"

This is not entirely true, it was because they needed the extra CPU power for an open world, and an open world requires m... #2

Smurf Racer looks rad!!!

Loved Smurf's Nightmare back in the day, it had an eerie soundtrack though.

Smurfs are scary. #1

That statement you quoted refers to the APU in general, not the CPU side of things. PS4's APU is no doubt very powerful (given that GPU especially), but the actual Jaguar CPU inside the APU is seemingly a weaker element to it.

It'd definitely be modified to fit PS4 (it's 8 cores for example so if developers take advantage of that it should be good) and be optimised, but its CPU is still derived from the Jaguar architecture, a successor to BobCat and competitor to... #1.1

Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge was published by Nintendo and the announcement that it was coming to other platforms came a fair few months after its release.

Agreed that it's Ubisoft's fault, though someone is undeniably pulling the strings here (there's no real reason why Ubisoft would delay the Wii U version). #9.1

The article says it only shows a November 23 release date when Flash is not enabled - I see the reported advert on my phone which does not support flash and Firefox with flash disabled through the add-ons menu #1.1

@jaosobno - I do. I'm excited because it's based off a fairly modern design (of a 2011 chip rather than the rumoured 2009 chip from last year's leaks), and it supports OpenCL. It's modern tech, and it's power efficient, allowing Wii U to operate at a mere 40 watts and exist within a tiny box.

And the performance of a 4850 is more than what most have been expecting from Nintendo, a bit like how Nintendo have dedicated an entire 1GB to the Wii U's operat... #2

Oh wow, I'm so excited about it now! #1.1

This. From what I understand it's basically optical Blu Ray, just as Wii discs were optical DVDs. #4.1.1

I agree about the Vita's Start/Select buttons, they are harder to press and in an odd location, shame.

Everything else is good, though, I like how the buttons (and D-Pad) in general are now clicky like the 3DS ones. #1.2.1

Should do, there's no reason for them not to release it as a PS Minis game as well (thus instantly making it a PSP/Vita/PS3 title). #3.1

No problem - many thanks for pointing out my error, I'm really sorry about that. (I had to laugh at my stupidity when I tested the borked link though) #1.1

Thanks so much for pointing this out - urgh, can't believe I made this error. I've reuploaded the article here with the correct link in place: http://n4g.com/news/1043140... #2.2

Gah! Really sorry about this. Is there any way I can request for this to be removed and a newer version to be approved? Here's the actual link: http://3dstribe.com/news/ve... #2.1.1

The worst screen was only due to the massive price cut though, so it's all good. #6.1

If you read the article they mention the screen issue shows up on Flare Red, Coral Pink, Ice White models, so more than 2. #3.1

I agree with you there. These days graphics are so good that it'd be great if extra power were focused into improving AI, depending on the game of course (there are some games out there with great AI, similarly there are some games where less processing power has gone into AI) #1.1

Don't forget Wave Race: Blue Storm on the 'Cube. It was developed by Nintendo Software Technology Corporation though, rather than in-house in Japan. #6.1.1
