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?

    Wii-U is onpar with the 360 and quite a way behind what the PS3 can do, according a dev friend that has office access to all 3.

      He’s a fake. You made him up.

    Look there is no better, from the games shown on both Xbox 360 and PS3 the better would be PS3 (Uncharted, The Last Of Us & Killzone); Its all well and good that developers are saying the Wii U has more graphical power but we are yet to see this, in fact most games that have been shown on the Wii U are just ports of currently released games (Proof can be shown by Batman Arkham Asylum – Wii U version was compared with PS3 version, the PS3 had notably better textures, lighting and shading). Until the Wii U tops anything on the PS3 I’m neglected to think this is just a big-bag-of-wind used an excuse to fit in with what will be soon the next-gen consoles such as Xbox 720 and PS4, where is the proof that this console can indeed top current consoles!? So far the few exclusives with this console is Mario and since when has Mario become the Be-All & End-All graphics? Again i believe fan-boys have seen the console over predicted it to the extent where they really believe it can compete with next gen consoles; This is just a poorly released and rushed console near the end of current gen consoles, very good work Nintendo, very good work… (Sarcasm)

      The Fifa director confirmed that they could have higher resolutions in the game because of the Wii U graphics card. Numerous developers have said that the Wii U with it’s modern tech and better tech (though I doubt it would be that much better than ps360) they can handle higher resolutions.

    ill tell you why the debate persists .its because people like you cant let it drop and the wii u will be a clear step up from ps3 xbox 360 of that i am certain.the technology in the wii u is 5 years ahead of plague station and shitbox

    • Sammie

      At least one smart person. Eurogamer even stated that the title was misleading. What Sumo said was that the game looks the same as the other versions, maybe even better. Read the article properly in entertainment. We all know the ps4/durango are gonna be a good jump in terms of graphics compared to Wii U and we know the Wii U is gonna be a good jump compared to ps360

    People said the ps3 was going to have amazing graphics yet it was a bit of a let down. The same will probably happen to the wii u

    cool, for now. because when the next playstation and Xbox come out Wii U would end up like the current Wii.
