Locked: New Wii game engine promises PS3 visuals

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - New Wii game engine promises PS3 visuals

I kinda wonder who made the "PS3 visuals" claim. I don't remember reading the developer making that claim.

They pull off some fantastic shaders, but they can't magically make the Wii draw more polys or output at a higher resolution.

Who is claiming it does PS3 graphics? Or is this someone eyeing the screen and saying "AT LAST NEXT GEN ON THE WIIIIII!!!!"

lol. So true.

The engine looks promising, not quite PS3 and 360 levels, but certainly more advanced than what has been used so far. I need to see an actual game running on this, before I get all excited though.



To me God of War 2 looks more graphically impressive. This demo had no scale or life to it.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I saw IGN's screens of The Conduit, it diden't look all that great in terms of graphics. Maybe an early build?

Yea the screens weren't as bad as MoHH2

But its up there with Metroid.

However that might just be an early model.

The terrain looks dead in those stills even the terrain in Heroes looked better.

IDK, when it comes to the Wii it's all about buffering before display, make what your make it fast and you can add everything else later.

Might cause some slow downs cause hey its like 750mhz power pc but the DRMS take it far.



I'm Unamerica and you can too.

If this is the same engine that has the video where they are showing off armour and swords in a room with water then I call bullocks too. Im sure if the ps3 and even 360 for that matter had engines that were in development for 15 years wed see some really impressive stuff on them. Also comparing ps360 low end games to the wiis high end games is what im sure the author of this title meant. Not a fair comaprison if you ask me but whatever.



 

 

 

This tech demo actually looks quite a bit better than the footage of Conduit I've seen. Still nowhere near CoD4, Gears of War, Uncharted, etc., but much better than anything I've seen on the Wii.

This is what the Wii will need to start tapping into more of the hardcore gamers. The wii is much more powerful than the ps2, so it's time they start getting some games where you can see it.

Tech Demo seems promising although Wii will never dispaly the same high end visul of Xbox 360.
Conduit is to early to judge ...
