Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360 graphics debate persists
The ongoing debate about who has the better graphics continues as the Wii U has been added into the mix with the PS3 and Xbox 360. With many gamers wondering whether they should invest in Nintendo’s next gen console, those who feel that the graphics are no better than the current machines may divert their attention to Sony and Microsoft’s next generation consoles.
As far as the graphics are concerned for the Wii U, British developer Sumo Digital has found the graphical capability to be on par with that experienced on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, in some cases they have regarded as better. In an article on Eurogamer, they mention this statement and try out the Wii U version of Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed at Gamescom. The Gamepad was found to be very useful for Remote Play, rear views, and as a weapon-cam.
In another report on The Gamer Scene they inform their readers that the Wii U’s graphics wont be a generation leap, even though there is more power in Nintendo’s new console than found in the PS3 and Xbox 360. Apparently, some of the Wii U games will boast a higher texture resolution than current consoles, making it look much better. When it comes to releasing the product our last post on the Wii U spoke about a Black Friday possibility, and that this would be an ideal time to launch the console in the states.
What do you think about the news of the Wii U’s graphics being on par with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360? Were you expecting the graphics to be much better than that which a six-year-old console is still delivering?
