I wonder what you guys will be saying when E3 rolls around. I hear the same thing at the beginning of each gen. Xbox 1.5 anyone?

Why are yall arguing about graphics in regards to NINTENDO? this is a company that is known for not giving a fu*k about graphics. It's all about the controls and the gameplay and their games having widespread appeal. they never gave a fu*k about the power of their system. they always do the bare minimum with that sh*t. it's still next gen because it's a new fu*king system that has enough new features to separate it from the previous one.

you all should know what to expect with nintendo. some GOAT mario, zelda, metroid, etc. games and a new type of controller. that's it.

I'm just gonna go with the Wii-HD isn't made for "real gamers". The people that buy the Wii U don't give a fu*k how bad the graphics are. They just want the screen to move when they press a button. That excites them.

all I kno is this, when I got my 360 I didnt even touch my xbox/ps2 anymore and even traded them both in a month later (and havent looked back since). Thats how a true next gen console should make a gamer feel

if I picked up a wii-u today not only would it not get more playtime than my 360 I wont even use it more than my ps3 and I literally turn on my ps3 like once a month

Chief technical officer, Oles Shishkovtsov, explains why Metro’s sequel won’t be appearing.

“[The] Wii U has a horrible, slow CPU,” explained Shishkovtsov. “We had an early look at it, we thought we could probably do it, but in terms of the impact we would make on the overall quality of the game – potentially to its detriment – we just figured it wasn’t worth pursuing at this time. It’s something we might return to. I really couldn’t make any promises, though.”

Despite Nintendo’s console offering Metro: Last Light new experiences to its players with it dual screens, when asked Shishkovtsov was adamant that the Wii U would ever seen Metro: Last Light when asked directly.

“We had an initial look at the Wii U, but given the size of the team and compared to where we were last time, just developing for the Playstation 3 is a significant addition.”

FWIW Black Ops 2 looks noticeably better on Wii U better detail on textures, much sharper and better lighting not bad for launch title graphics.

U's GPU is very good despite what people say, its new hardware its going to get better the more people work with it (instead of hiring an outside team to port their game), they said it will get next gen games so expect that next year. The GPU will be fine.

on the giantbomb launch day stream they said nothing about BO2 looking better and actually said framerate issues were worse on both bo2 and arkham city.

only games worth playing on the wiiU right now are Scribblenauts and ZombiU. Super Mario Bros if you haven't played one of those games in a while.

We would not have had this problem if the system was plagued with ports from the 360 and PS3. If the devs would have worked on original games, then the results will be better. A noticeable improvement will be seen by E3 2013, just like we saw with the 360. sh*t wasn't that much better until Gears came out and proved everyone wrong.

but then that SW 1313, Watch Dogs, Samaritan level piff will be hitting at E3 for 720/PS4. Had they dropped it last year, they would have had a good two year run but now they've got a sub 6 month window before the console gets relegated to Wii status when it comes to third party support.
