[QUOTE="ps2robot"]I do not have a wii.....But I should get one this month =-).....I have a ps2 witch is getting old so I want to upgrade....I have battle front 2 for the ps2 and i was excited when I say this thread....So then I can play a star wars battle front on the wii =-)....But since I dont have a wii explain to me what you mean by ps2 port for the wii.......I have no idea what a ps2 port lolimnotwhite
A port is basically the same exact game. The only difference on the Wii is slightly different programming for the controls. The worst part about a port for me is the graphics. The Wii has some pretty good power behind it, but it is rarely used. It can't handle the PS3 or 360 games so you can't port games from those systems. However, PS2 games it can handle. So a PS2 port on a Wii is the basically the same exact game that is on the PS2 exact with different controls. So the issue is why have waste your money on a Wii when you are just using PS2 technology?
Good point, the wii measures up like this to other systems in terms of graphical potential!
Wii is 150% of a PS2
Wii is 200% more powerful than a Gamecube (although nintendo tries to say less which isn't helping their case)
Wii is 134% of an Xbox
Wii is 40-60% of a PS3 (with cell chip this is even lower)
Wii is 65% of a Xbox 360
But why has noone even mentioned the Wii's great load times?.........pessimistic jerks!
And ports for the wii need I MEAN NEED, graphical updates! We're gettin it with Tales of SYmphonia: Dawn of the New World/Knight of Ratatosk (that's the name of that tree stupid)
But what about other ports?
I have the answer why not, and it's very simple! Because unless a game is a director's cut and actually 30% or more reworked by a Nintendo First Party Dev team along with the original creators of the game, all they are allowed to do is make a straight port, with a couple extra minutes of gameplay here and there.
Nintendo, tries VERY HARD to maintain an image.........which is pissing me off now! Because they don't have the concept approval like other games, (you can read about that in June's issue of gamepro magazine if you don't believe me)
The PS2 is not more powerful than the GC and had better looking games than the Xbox(rogue squadron 2 and 3, RE4...)
