So Ninty's own games dont use top of the line? I know Mario and P-1000 isnt but not even Pikmin3? Thats sad if thats the case.
Resistance was made by top end graphics? Really cause the sequels look better. Hell KZ2 and 3 look better. and the Uncharted sequels, so if it was already top out by that one launch how do you explain those games? Hell id say even Crysis2 looked better that wasnt even 1st party (although it did glitch out,360 version at least)
What I mean is it was designed as top of the line in terms of graphics, whether it was later surpassed or not is a different story right?
Yeah, Ninty's own games don't use top of the line anymore, not in terms of graphics that is. They focus on family value and accessibility now, so it's a change of focus since the gamecube days. There are exceptions to this but these are mainly from Ninty's external studios or for specific IPs such as Zelda. Other than that, most of Nintendo's IPs no longer focus on being top of the line.
It sucks for some (for me I'll admit), but for many others that's exactly how they want it to be. I advocate balance.
