Even if it possible to have DMC4 run on the Wii the question would be why would you want to? The same with CoD4... the graphics and well as DD5.1 surround sound really improve the experience of the game. It would be the same as playing wii sport on PS3/360 without the wii-mote where the control is the big part of the experience.

First you have to prove that level of detail=gameplay. Then you have to prove that the art direction cannot be reasonably duplicated with reduced detail.


I'm not a game developer but even Firaxis which is developing Civ:revolution mentions the fact one reason why Wii version was put on hold is the art work had to be completely redone (no ps2 port to use) and they didn't have the man power to do a completely different version. Rev doesn't have any where near as nice of graphics as DMC4.

And yes graphic can and does improve the whole experience of a game which is why PS /N64 isn't the current consoles sold in stores. Gameplay means nothing to a blind man. :)

i bet it could - with slightly worse graphics but it prob. won't because I think most of the current Wii install base wouldn't really find this game interesting enough to buy it. just not that type of game....



I see this as very...very far fetched. I tend to hear more and more wii-warriors asking for ports of HD games, and quite frankly i dont see it possible. Unfortunately i dont have the notions or what not to be able to seriously discuss why, but someone brought up an interesting point...

DMC4 is coming out on PC...hold it, once again, on PC where there is no proven Devil may cry fan base, and quite frankly i see it as a healthy risk shot. So if they put it out on PC why wouldnt they put it out on Wii? Redoing the whole game from scratch, to come up with a DMC 3.5 is probably just not worth it



IT'S POSSIBE, BUT WHY WOULD YOU WANT IT IF YOU ARE A WII OWNER. jUST BUY A 360 CORE, IT'S LIKE 279 OR SOMETHING.

That is a delay. I'm simply arguing the game could be done.

Bullshit. I did not argue that we shouldn't advance graphics. And graphics mean even less to a bling man, so that comment is further bullshit.


 



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Did Knight of the Old Republic and Ninja Gaiden convince PS2 owners to buy an Xbox? It didn't, so this comment is not a valid reason not to port the game.

EDIT: Of course those games weren't ported anyway, but that was the choice of the developers. I was just addressing your comment.

Graphics and sound is my reward I get for working the controller. Even a simple  2-d shooter game like Super Stardust HD is very rewarding to play.



DMC IS VISUALLY STUNNING, WHILE NITENDO FOCUSES MORE ON GAMEPLAY. THE WII IS A GREAT CONSOLE , BUT GRAPHIC IS NOT ITS THING. WHAT ABOUT PATAPON....

When did I argue graphics didn't matter?

No. Hd graphics are not its thing. The system has as much memory at the Xbox and Gamecube combined, so Nintendo clearly wanted it more powerful, just not to the point it would make the system cost twice as much as previous gens, which had all cost less than $200 to manufacture for Nintendo.
