when the Wii launched back in the day I couldnt tell the difference between the Wii and the Gamecube in terms of graphics.








I still cant :p

You could if you looked at the right examples. Because many games IMO didn't even try to push the wii past GCN level.

Also, it didn't help that Nintendo redefined what the CGN was capable of with the release of TP.

The best example is probably the main mario games. Sunshine, galaxy, and galaxy 2.
There's even a significant difference in the appearance of Galaxy and Galaxy 2, so a difference between sunshine and Galaxy 2 is quite definite.

So much delusion in this topic lol. Madden 06 on the 360 blew the PS2/Xbox versions away graphically (no, not gameplay). King Kong, Kameo, PDZ, Project Gotham, etc. were a huge leap above the current gen, especially if you owned an HDTV and could see the extra detail.

Even the games that looked largely the same as the previous gen because they were quick ports—i.,e. Gun—STILL displayed how much more powerful the 360 was over the Xbox, because they ran in 720p instead of 480.

Neither of the above two scenarios are the case for the Wii U: We don't have a SINGLE Wii U game that looks better than the best the PS3/360 have to offer (Uncharted 3, The Last Of Us, GOd of War: Ascension, Halo 4, etc.); AND not a single Wii U game that's a port of a 360/PS3 game (Assassins Creed 3, Mass Effect 3, Batman, etc.) looks better than the 360 versions or runs at a higher resolution and/or framerate.

The 360 displayed a huge leap over the original Xbox from DAY ONE, and it did it after only 5 years. The Wii U hasn't displayed that it's a leap over the 360 at all, and it's been 7 years.


It did not display a huge leap at the time, comments like the following were quite common around the 360s launch, and they sound remarkably like what is being said about the Wii U. It was written a month after launch BTW.

2.) There's been accusations in the past that the Xbox 360 is more an upgrade to the original Xbox, not a full blown next generation console. That's honestly a load of crap; the 360 is phenomenally powerful compared to the Xbox. However, it's important to remember that what we're comparing is a late generation Xbox title with a first generation Xbox 360 title. Keep in mind that visual quality ALWAYS gets better as developers learn to design for a specific system from the ground up. Most likely, launch month and the months after will be the last time you see games being released across generations; the quality of the Xbox 360 titles will quickly exceed what the Xbox is capable of keeping up with.

This has proven true and the same will prove true of the Wii U. Just like Gun, King Kong, Blazing Angels, Madden, Perfect Dark, and several other titles failed to show what the 360 was capable of compared to the last gen, nothing has been shown on the Wii U that truly sets it apart. If you want to bring up higher resolutions, then why is the Wii U running current gen games at 1080p 60fps according to the developers?

Honestly, the parallels between the 360 and Wii U pre launch are shocking.

Merk still trying to pretend PDZero looked like anything but ass.

It's like they never learn. All we gotta say is that CoD is in 1080p on the WiiU and the PS3 version isn't.

PDZ has some of the best textures to this day! It looks better than COD in areas. Is it among the best the 360 has to offer today? No. But it still blew the previous generation away.

COD will not be 1080p native/60 fps on the Wii U, unless it takes a graphical hit compared to the PS3/360 versions. That was nothing more than Activision spouting PR bs. How about this: Let's bet our GFAQS accounts on it? If it's 1080p/60 fps and looks as graphically complex as the PS3/360 versions, I'll delete this account. If it's not, you delete yours. It will come out that BLOPS2 is not 1080p, just like it has in all the other cases where devs have mistakenly said that.
