I must admit... This is some pretty good bait... You overlooked one thing though... Sheep just don't care about graphics. Gameplay all the way. Also I'm 100% Sure Bayonetta isn't on the Wii U.

#6 Edited by DaBrainz (7673 posts) -

The X1 and the PS4 also don't have any games that look much better than last gen. Just sayin.

not important how games look on last gen platforms.

That's a picture of the first Bayonetta game.

You're just fond of making threads that flat-out suck, TC.

I remember when people thought halo 4 was graphics king, lol.

Oh gees that geometry complexity is so non-existent. that's canyons literally just textured slabs.

Comparing late last gen games to launch Wii U games? lol

How about comparing first year Wii U games to games like Resistance fall of man, perfect dark zero, COD 2, Gears of war.....

Late in the Wii u's life the games will look better than late ps3 games. In fact I have yet to see anything on my ps4 that is a major leap from last gen aside from the games having higher res textures and acceptable AA.

#13 Posted by charizard1605 (58136 posts) -

lol. No.

#14 Edited by AM-Gamer (4033 posts) -

@DaBrainz: Lmao what? Infamous SS, KZ shadowfall, Ryse, BF4, TR:DE. They all look better anything you will see on last gen and by a wide margin.

#15 Edited by no-scope-AK47 (2806 posts) -

The wii u is stronger on paper but the games look like ps3/360 games. So far there is no wii u game that screams next gen. As the TC has pointed out the HD twins best games look better than the wii u best looking games. Nintendo needs a game changer that says look the next gen is here.

TR:DE looks worse than the last-gen PC version.

Comparing 2013 Wii U games to 2013 PS3/360 games is a lot fairer than comparing 2014 Wii U games to 2006 PS3/360 games....

X. Mario Kart 8. Bayonetta 2. The Legend of Zelda.

There's some great looking games there. Open your eyes and look.

#19 Edited by Gue1 (10191 posts) -

the Wii U's GPU alone is more powerful than the PS3 and X360 combined.

#20 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (7321 posts) -

AC4 on the Wii U looks as good as the best looking games on the PS3/Xbox 360. It may not run as well as them, though.

#22 Posted by DaBrainz (7673 posts) -

@AM-Gamer:

Not really much of a leap if you compare something like ghosts 360 to battlefield or killzone on X1 or PS4. Of course gfx whores will focus on the nuances.

#23 Posted by XboxStache (914 posts) -

Halo 4 still looks amazing.

#24 Edited by 35cent (916 posts) -

The Wii U isn't weaker than the PS3 or 360

#25 Posted by AM-Gamer (4033 posts) -

@DaBrainz: Um infamous SS, KZ,SF and Ryse are massive leaps. Have you played them or you going off screenshots?

Um not really, theirs lots of areas where the console version looks better then the pc version. Regardless there is not a single aspect where that game doesn't trounce anything that you will see on the PS3/360.

I was actually shocked at how good Ryse looked. I played a little Infamous SS at my buddy's...the game made me say "wtf". Those facial animations, all the lightning. Those are the two best looking games available right now.

Uh, not necessarily. There's some worse textures here and there, but the added/denser foliage and TressFX 2.0 make scenes more lively. It looks fantastic and calling the PC version "last-gen" is disingenuous. That game looked like an early next-gen game on PC when it released. I would have traded some slightly sharper textures for the improvements they made in the xb1/ps4 versions, given the chance. TR:DE and the PC version runs laps around 360 and ps3 games in the visual department.

You could easily put them in the top 5 on any platform.

So far the WiiU has not produced a game that can beat the PS3/360's best, in any technical way.

HD Nintendo cartoonyness is beautiful of course but so were Kameo and Viva Pinata nearly a decade ago.

#33 Posted by AM-Gamer (4033 posts) -

For people comparing the Wii U to the PS3 and 360 my understanding was that it has a processor slightly weaker then both. But it has significantly more ram and a better GPU.

I guess you're right. Then he should be comparing multiplats like assassins creed 4 to make such claims.

#35 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21773 posts) -

It's CPU is.

Also some developer said that PS3 can have more AI on screen than Wii U, it's one of those Dynasty Warriors type of games.

Either that or the best from both sets of platforms with each other. So I guess Mario Kart 8 with Gran Turismo 6, or Mario 3D World to Uncharted 3 etc...

That may be true apart from the obvious bullshots you posted.

#39 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (13646 posts) -

@AM-Gamer

That might explain Assassin's Creed has Performance issues on the Wii U... It relys on the CPU more than anything else.

#40 Edited by AtariKidX (6282 posts) -

Yes.....WiiU is weaker than PS3/XBOX360.Ans that is why no game on the WiiU looks better than God of War 3 and uncharted games on the PS3.

Who cares? That's not stopping me from saying Ryse looks amazing. It's a launch title; just imagine X1 exclusives 2-3 years from now. Is Infamous SS or Ryse available on PC?

When games will be in 901p?

at least those quick time prompts will be a little bit crisper

#43 Edited by Gue1 (10191 posts) -

The GameCube was waaay more powerful than the PS2 but the latter often outperformed it on multiplat games if not always. Same thing is happening now with the Wii U vs PS3.

Both the PS4 and Xbone have weaker Cpu than last gen too but x86 is supposedly more convenient because of stuff like "out of order execution" (and cheaper too). And while the Wii U has a different Cpu Instruction Set than PS4/Xbone they all have exactly the same architecture where the console is heavily dependant on Gpgpu if they don't want to choke the Cpu and hinder performance. Cpu and Gpu have direct access to memory pools, etc.

It's already been proven it's stronger.

Meanwhile, PC still doesn't have exclusives worth the boot? Still will get multiplats thanks to consoles. Name me one PC exclusive that even in the realm of Uncharted, Halo, Super Mario Galaxy or Gears....I'll give you ARMA 2.

What about it? It's not a winner in any technical category and the WiiU can't even run it as well as the 360:

Mass Effect 3 on Wii U: the Digital Foundry verdict

Aside from some cute but non-essential gamepad features, it's safe to say that Mass Effect 3 on Wii U is a solid enough conversion but offers nothing of substance to elevate it over the existing Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game - it's clearly an improvement over the lacklustre PlayStation 3 release with a higher performance level, but across the overall run of play it's somewhat disappointing to see a vintage 2005 console with slower GPU and less RAM match and indeed exceed the quality of the experience found on the brand new Nintendo hardware.

A) Uncharted was an average feeling game

B) Halo is on PC

C) Gears of war, also on PC

nintendos games have mostly cartoony artstyle...

the flopstation3 and 360 aim for realistic graphics.

the hardware inside the wiiu is more advanced than those systems though.
