Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Wii U games in 1080p 60fps: Does it really sell games or matter?

People seem to go crazy over this on this site. To me it really does not matter. Maybe I am not technical enough to even give a crap?

Does this make you interested in the game now? Or is it just nice to prove the Wii U has power? What is so hot about this subject?



 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

Playing The Wonderful 101 right now. I'm surprised that the game does manage to do 60 FPS. Awesome game and loads of action. And it never slows down!

It's not really that it sells the game. But this is supose to be a standard now. Everyone is expecting it. It be like someone making a game, but with Atari graphics. Unless that was the whole point of the game. No one would buy it if it where COD, normally.

The whole point of this coming generation is more about performance than it is graphics. It doesn't really help sales but it sure as hell gives some morale to 3rd party developers but overall I don't think consumers care too much about it.

It does matter if you're arguing how close Wii U is to the competition.

I played the Diablo 3 Demo yesterday. Not 1080p and I don't know if it's 60fps, but damn, that game runs (NO, I DON'T WANT TO PLAY CANDY CRUSH, GTFO STUPID AD!) smooth as butter. Does it really matter? I guess not, I never didn't buy a game because it wasn't 1080/60p. But when a game happens to do just that, I enjoy it a lot.

Supposedly 1080p 60 fps = next gen to some people.

Some people don't think Wii U is next gen.

So any news of such = panic.

What defines next gen truly is that it is the next iteration of products.

No amount of pixels per second and resolution changes that.

 

Either way all this talk of graphics hurts my brain (not techincally just how stupid the arguement is).

Well. I for one wouldn't even touch a fighting game that isn't 60fps.

I don't give a f*ck about resolution. But give mah 60 FPS!

As for sales, it obviously doesn't matter, most people can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, and they don't care if the game is 30 FPS or 60 FPS. Neither one of those is a selling point for the general consumer.
