      your whole argument is highly subjective, and not backed by any facts. I can go to beyond3d which i believe many developers and knowledgable people post, and they will say WII U exclusives don't look like anything 360/ps3 couldn't do, and not more technically impressive then 360/ps3 games does that mean they don't know what here talking about? and you are smarted then everyone else. you're not even a developer, so my point still stands. it a pointless comparison especially when you are comparing cartoony games vs realistic games so your computation budget differently . generally which exclusive looks better will go down to bias, just look at the SOTC vs BOTW thread.

      So despite almost every port running worse on Wiiu developers didn't struggle with the Cpu? lets just make the old excuse of shit port or lazy developer, that commonly used by people being hurt about there favorite console running the game inferior to another.

      x
      I don't care if you think it is highly subjective.

      Never once have I claimed that a WiiU exclusive doesn't look like it couldn't run on an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.

      Claiming I am not a developer is an assertion, do you have evidence for that?

      When did I compare cartoony and realistic games? I am not comparing the games themselves, but rather the underlying technology.

      We have already established that the WiiU's CPU is not it's strong point. You are making this argument out to be something it is not.

      we don't have proper documentation of the wiiu gpu, and looking at real world results, i dont see how most agmes no showing in advantges, infact a few games ran lower resolution proves the wiiu gpu is a step up.

      on 07 February 2018

      x
      We do know the WiiU is a Very-Long-Instruction-Word based Radeon graphics processor, so we can draw comparisons to the other GPU's in that family using a similar ISA.

      As for games not showing advantages... Keep in mind for a long time that Call of Duty not only performed worst on the Playstation 3, it looked worst, it ran at a lower resolution than the Xbox 360 counterpart... That is despite the higher theoretical performance ceiling the Playstation 3 offered.

      You can have the best hardware in the world, but if it's capabilities are not appropriately utilized, then it's pointless.

      on 08 February 2018

      x
      the thing is ps3 had clear disadvantages, if it was clearly superior it wouldn't have those problems, in the end people who had a 360 enjoyed the best experience in most games, and thats all that matters when comparing hardware.

      on 08 February 2018

      x
      Indeed the Playstation 3 does have some disadvantages.

      But that doesn't mean it isn't the platform that is technically superior in terms of capability.

      It just means, the games that are ported to the Playstation 3, that suffer a reduction in performance and image quality are shit ports as they aren't leveraging the hardware capabilities appropriately.

      on 08 February 2018

      x
      i wont call them shit ports, , it's more like ps3/wiiu were hardware thats not as good as 360, if the hardware is superior in noteworthy way most developers will get there games run better, that never happened ,it just means each hardware has a disadvantage and advantages, and if you want the hardware that runs games best which is all that matters in the end, it's 360.

      on 08 February 2018

      Playstation 3 did eventually have games that ran better than the Xbox 360 version.
      It wasn't common. But it did happen.

      And WiiU has games that not only look better than the Xbox 360 version, but run better.

      that need for speed was a minuscule upgrade.

      on 11 February 2018

      It was still an upgrade.

      No one in their right mind would assume that the WiiU was some kind of technical marvel that was capable of generationally-more complex visuals.

      It is certainly more efficient.

      It's still more capable than the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 when games are made it's way. But a generation leap it is not.

      on 12 February 2018

      x
      i wouldn't consider it any leap at all.

      on 12 February 2018

      x
      and almost every 360 port thats better then wiiu doesn't count because of the shit port excuse, but once there is a upgrade, hey look it counts.

      on 12 February 2018

      One of the biggest and most annoying limitations for Developers last generation was DRAM or lack thereof.

      The WiiU rectified that to a degree compared to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

      on 12 February 2018

      x
      It really doesnt matter, wiiu the whole gen ran games worse then 360 because of the cpu, it even had 3 games run at lower resolution, superior hardware runs mots games better.

      on 12 February 2018

      * Superior hardware that is on the market long enough so that developers have ample time to learn.

      * Has a large enough marketshare to make the financial investment and time feasible to port games over in a high quality state.

      * Actually takes advantage of all the platforms various nuances.

      The Playstation 3 wasn't getting great ports until years into the generation despite it's "superior hardware". - I think that's the point you continue to gloss over.

      on 12 February 2018

      x
      superior hardware doesn't really need that, it just runs games better, even after all the years 360 games usually ran technically demanding games better then ps3, but we''agree to disagree.

      on 12 February 2018

      x
      what you are describing is hardware that has advantages and disadvantages, and to the developers that got the best results on 360 that was the superior hardware for that game.

      on 12 February 2018

      x
      Are you trying to assert that the Xbox 360 is superior to the Playsation 3 on a technical level?

      on 15 February 2018

      x
      I said they both have there advantages, and disadvantages, depending on what the game required each console can be superior to one another. but like its highly debatable, ps3 being superior is not a fact.

      on 15 February 2018

      x
      only fact there is, is 360 ran most games better, if you wanted most games running better, the fact is 360 was superior.

      on 15 February 2018

      x
      Having advantages/disadvantages is a given.
      The Xbox 360 also had disadvantages.

      But trying to assert that the Xbox 360 is technically superior to the Playstation 3 is ludicrous.

      I am not going to play this insane game any longer. Haha

      why don't post at beyond3d most developers have the same opinion.

      on 15 February 2018

      acrtually many developers think 360 is superior the important is nobody says its a fact

      I am involved in other circles.

      on 16 February 2018

      x
      well i'm just pointing out 360 being superior is not absurd as you think because even developers share that thought, even a game developed leading on ps3, sees very little downgrade on 360, as hardware it ran games better which would qualify as superior hardware in my book, but every has there opinion on the matter.

      on 16 February 2018

      x
      It's not an opinion.
      It's a fact that the Playstation 3 was technically superior.

      Especially once you start leveraging Iterative Refinement on Cell.

      its not a fact, just stop it. if developers can say its not more powerful, that makes it not a fact, your opinion is not fact.

      on 17 February 2018

      You are throwing allot of assertions out there without knowing all the facts.
      How do you know I am not a developer?
      How do you know I am not a hardware engineer?

      Have you seen my credentials? You can try and assert your logical fallacies all you want, but they are just that.

      And I won't just "stop it" this is my wall. I will say whatever I desire within the confines of the sites rules.

      If you don't like it. Take a hike.

      The Xbox 360 is not as powerful as the Playstation 3. That is a fact. Not opinion. Fact.

      The fact I am even having this discussion in 2018 is stupid, it is ludicrous.

      on 17 February 2018

      x
      what makes your word better then other developers. I really doubt you are developer btw, but yea its not a fact, if it was . a fact people that actually worked with the hardware wouldn't say 360 is better,

      Hilarious. An article from 2006... A time where developers were still coming to grips with the hardware?

      Besides even the article you posted states (And I quote!)
      "On paper, PS3 has more raw processing grunt than Xbox 360"

      It even goes on to state: "In essence the two systems are actually fairly closely matched in terms of graphics."

      And that's just the GPU. Once we start bringing the CPU into the equation, the Playstation 3 beats the Xbox 360.

      Oh no. You may have won this debate. /sarcasm.

      Come back with something that actually properly backs up your claims or where you can show that you have a low-level understanding of both sets of hardware.

      And whether you think I am a developer or not is ultimately irrelevant. I am not obligated to justify myself to appease some random person on the internet... Because to be blunt... I don't give a shit what you or anyone else thinks.

      on 18 February 2018

      x
      One developer has publicly (although anonymously) stated that Xbox 360 - in games programming terms - is the better machine as the GPU is more powerful, providing greater pixel and vertex processing horsepower. Do you concur at all? Is this really what it all comes down to?

      did you miss that part? ro about another developer

      never mind that the original article blitz games, actually got better results on 360 despite working on the strength of each ssytem

      At Blitz our cross platform technology enables us to develop simultaneously for both systems and spend our time playing to the strengths of each.

      on 18 February 2018

      x
      but you are right one, despite 360 running most games better the whole gen basically, and developers saying 360 is better, ps3 is more powerful is a fact, just laughable , i would bet my house you never worked on any console.

      on 18 February 2018

      x
      Perhaps if you were comparing the complete platform rather than a specific component you might actually be onto something.

      The GPU doesn't do anything without the rest of the system you know.

      on 18 February 2018

      x
      I'm actually not seeing this cpu advantage, almost every game ran on 360 better, and the most technically demanding cpu wise were open world games, and they all ran on 360 better the whole gen.

      on 18 February 2018

      x
      You aren't going to convince me otherwise with such a poor argument and even poorer evidence to back it up.

      on 18 February 2018

      x
      you can think what ever you want the fact remains 360 ran most games better the whole gen, GPU showed a bigger advantage in ports then ps3 cpu, evn when tailored for ps3, 360 handled with no problem, microsoft, the developers, which made those comments early on in the genration where in fact right.

      on 18 February 2018

      x
      Towards the end of the generation... The games had an advantage on the Playstation 3.

      on 19 February 2018

      x
      no they didn't even towards the end of the generation most games ran better on 360. it was till rare for a ps3 version to be better, and if it was, it was only slightly.

      on 19 February 2018

      x
      In your opinion.

      on 19 February 2018

      x
      i can'r even think of one ps3 game where it had a big advantage against the 360 version, even when ps3 was lead.

      on 19 February 2018

      x
      Just because you can't think of it... Doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

      For example... L.A. NOIRE.

      And now you need to ask yourself... Why it's better on Playstation 3.

      on 21 February 2018

      x
      thats one game, with a very small advantage in frame rate that targeted ps3 to it's best yet 360 handled it well, while ps3 had trouble just hanging with 360 in most ports that didn't even target 360 specifically.

      on 21 February 2018

      x
      You are missing the point entirely.

      on 22 February 2018

      x
      what point? that 360 just runs games better period.

      on 22 February 2018

      x
      The fact I have to essentially spell it out is a little disconcerting.

      I'm going away for a few days. So I'll let you think a little harder on this topic.

      on 22 February 2018

      x
      i already know why it runs better on ps3, it was developed to take advantage of ps3 strengths, but even then 360 handled it pretty damn well, being only slightly worse, there are actual ports that lead on ps3, and 360 has the better versions, 360 was just the better hardware.

      on 23 February 2018

      x
      Playstation 3 had superior hardware to the Xbox 360. That cannot be disputed.

      The Xbox 360 had hardware that was simply easier to work with. That also cannot be disputed.

      What that means is that the bulk of multiplatform titles will look and perform better on the Xbox 360.

      But games that fully leverage the Playstation 3's hardware will be a step up over anything the Xbox 360 could realistically achieve.

      on 26 February 2018

      x
      i highly disagree most people will tell you GTAV is most technically impressive game on both, and i'm sure they both max out the hardware, same with a numbers of games. not lets pretend third party games don't max out the hardware, but what ever feel free tot think what you want buddy. you think rockstar games and many thirdparty with huge huge budgets didn't leverage the ps3 as best they could then you are sadly mistaken.

      on 26 February 2018

      x
      And you are assuming I am ignorant. I'm not.

      Many developers try to achieve parity on multiple platforms for various reasons.
      Even the PC gets held back by consoles at times.

      on 27 February 2018

      x
      lol parity, gtav was the only time, rockstar was able to achieve parity usually the ps3 version of games are worse.

      on 27 February 2018

      and are usually worse by a nice margin.

      on 27 February 2018

      x
      Are you telling me that rockstar fully tapped out the capabilities of the Playstation 3, even resorting to iterative refinement where possible?

      Do you have citations for this that provides low-level information?

      Otherwise this conversation is boring and you aren't really adding anything new and just wasting time.

      on 27 February 2018

      x
      your argument doesn't, make sense, games that are barely running at 30fps on 360/ps3 you dont think developers 'maxed out the hardware in 6-7 years. it actually a miracle they got some those games to run.

      on 28 February 2018
