How do the visuals on the Nintendo Switch compare to those of the Xbox 360 & PS3?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - How do the visuals on the Nintendo Switch compare to those of the Xbox 360 & PS3?

The Nintendo Switch hardware is...

A big leap over 7th gen 71 40.11%
 
A minor leap over 7th gen 72 40.68%
 
About the same as 7th gen 24 13.56%
 
Actually WORSE than last gen 10 5.65%
 
Total:177

In another thread, the topic had taken a turn and many are comparing the Switch to the HD Twins of the 7th gen. Maybe we can bring that discussion here...

 

In the past, we've had awesome comparisons between the best looking software on the original Xbox vs the Nintendo Wii. Now, it's time for the main event. Fell free to bring your personal experiences, specs, screenshots, frame rate/resolution comparisons, online, etc and show us why you think the Switch is

A.) A huge jump in quality B.) A minor step up (7.5 Gen, if you will...) or C.) About the same level as

When compared to the "powerhouse consoles" of last gen. You can even toss in the Wii U for good measure!

 

Ready?

FIGHT!!

It's noticeably better than 7th gen, but also clearly below 8th gen....

I would say it stays middle way from both in terms of quality. Technically it's closer to 7th gen but the things devs are accomplishing bring the Switch to another level.

Switch: 0307-6588-7010 | New 2DS XL: 2037-2612-6964

MacBook Air (Mid 2017) | iPhone SE | Apple Watch Series 3

I would say about the same.



Noticeably better than last gen and with the right optimization able to run some current gen games (PS4/XB1)



I wouldn't say it's "minor" or "big" really.. I notice the differences but I don't think they're insignificant, and they're also obviously not on the level of PS4 or Xbox One.

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

It's a huge leap. Some games look even better than anything on the PS4.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I'd have to see some side to side comparisons. But it would probably vary depending on what games you compare. The Last of Us for example would probably be an unfair comparison, even if every comparison came out in Switch's favor, because that's a game that came out at the end of PS3's lifetime after the developers had become very familiar with the hardware. And developers are just getting used to Switch.
And if you compare to Life of Black Tiger, well...

But I would imagine that Switch games are generally noticeably better looking than games from Gen 7.
Especially Nintendo's own titles, considering they tend to run at 60f.

OK, OK, I make a better comparison.

Obviously quite a big leap. Just look at the resolution/framerate of your average 7th gen game and compare it to a Switch game with better resolution, framerate and graphics. Like, take Xbox 360 Skyrim and pit it against Super Mario Odyssey. It's just dumb to even compare.
