Question:  In what ways would the Wii U version be superior over the 360/PS3 versions?

THQ Employee:  Well the Wii U is full of potential as far as specs go.  I know that Metro: Last Light is running at a good 50-60 fps on the PC, so I'm not sure how the Wii U version will compare to that.  But the Wii U version of games from ALL developers and publishers, have potential for much smoother framerates, improved textures, and additional bonus content that the 360/PS3 version's won't have.  In a way, buying the Wii U version over the 360/PS3 versions, will be like buying the Blu-ray version of a movie instead of the standard dvd version.  You get better visuals, and more additional content with the Wii U version of any game compared to the other console version.  But this will only happen as long as a developer or publisher puts in the time and effort instead of doing a straight port. 

Question:  I noticed a lot of games for 360 and PS3 don't take advantage of TRUE 1080p.  Could we see more games on Wii U taking advantage of true 1080p resolution?

THQ Employee:  The Wii U is much more powerful than the other HD consoles, so Wii U doesn't have a huge problem doing 1080p for the majority of its games.  Will Darksiders 2 and Metro: Last Light be in 1080p on Wii U?  I can't speak for the teams behind those games.  I don't work on those specific teams so I can't say what they plan to do with the Wii U versions of their games as far as graphics or content go.  I do know based on the specs I've seen, the console is more than capable of graphics that surpass current consoles.  It's like I said before.  Expect majority of third party Wii U games from most publishers to have true 1080p, additional content, and smoother framrates than what the PS3/360 versions offer.  If you want the DEFINITIVE version of any game in your library, I would suggest either the PC version or the Wii U version...at least for now. This is not a knock agains the 360/PS3 versions of any games either.  Fans of the 360 and PS3 are the majority of the gamers who games...period.  So publishers have to give them the best product we can.

Well, this is awkward.


My reaction: So you bring up an article from september 2011 to try make yourself feel better about what was said last week form an actual 3rd party dev. Which was this:

So far the hardware's been on par with what we have with the current generations. Based on what I understand, the resolution and textures and polycounts and all that stuff, we're not going to being doing anything to up-rez the game, but we'll take advantage of the controller for sure.'

No it’s not too make myself feel better as I already know it will be more than “on par” with current gen

You don’t build a powerful console and downgrade it, that’s just stupid! You have something and then add too it and make it more powerful hence the “on par with 360” romurs that came from devs with early devkits


Does it make sense to you that it was much powerful and then all of a sudden it is now on par with PS360?

Of course it makes sense, but now we hear from an actual dev who is making a launch title on the system that it is on par with the current gen hd/consoles. Of coruse over the years the games will look better. The fact of the matter is, if i don't see launch titles better than Uncharted 3 then it is a no buy from me. Which is dissappointing for me because I have a wii and gamecube!

Not too mention that "THQ employee" sounds rather iffy as well...

Not that I'm claiming that the Wii U won't be more powerful than the PS3/X360, but the OP posted a "old" article from a site that doesn't look at all high profile, without an actual name of the employee, which just doesn't suddenly convince me.

But we'll see at E3 or around then what the final console will be like I suppose.

@OP: Just because the guy in the other thread about the other article posted a poll with a silly option, doesn't mean you couldn't have bothered to include a normal/serious poll.

Actually, it kind of does. I don't see any possible poll that'd be contributing to the discussion. And both threads are really about single developer spokesmen, so they aren't too serious anyway

It makes sense too you that it went backwards instead of forwards with power? -.-

 

 

I give up…

The "gaming" Director of Darksiders said that, but he has been (willingly?) missunderstood and the translation of this interview has been missunderstood too, he obviously meant that the Wii U version of Darksiders 2 will not have graphical advantages.

We know already that the Wii U is much more powerfull than PS360. Even from the last years E3-Demos. The PS360 are not able to render such screens like the garden scene on TV (720p) and Tablet (480p) simultaneous.



close please. old article is old



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.
