Exactly, anyone remember the VHS which died out in 2006? Physical media will always outperform streamed media, not everyone has the required bandwidth for blu-ray streaming. And Netflix only streams 720 and upscales to 1080p to save bandwidth.
No actually the only problem right now is Hard drive space and the fact that the biggest market, the USA has a shitty internet connection compared to the rest of the world.
5MB on average, when others have 50mb on average and even more.
I have a 100MBPS connection which is very average in large cities, the rural area should not be counted as average.
And I have 50mb per second, and yet I don't want to download 50gb blu ray movies and games onto my HDD.
I remember when nintendo was the bee's knees but then the wii happend and most people who think the wii was the first console nintendo made think nintendo sucks I really hope this doesn't happen for the wii u because I would have liked a half decent cod or dishounerd on wii
I have one of these for my kids, and it sucks. I don't even care about graphics too much, but just seeing how the visuals on this system aren't even on par with current xbox and PS made me laugh.
the new Xbox has a weaker GPU than that of the WiiU by 15%(minimum)
the PS4 is going to be 5%-7% stronger than the WiiU so the WiiU will last this Gen unless MS and Sony make a massive leap in hardware and take a massive loss to reduce the price of their new console to be acceptable
3M units sold and it's ultra fast and clear
it is the best 1st week selling console in history
the WiiU is literally 6times more powerful than the current Gen the only reason developers aren't making higher quality games for it is because the fanboys will start saying that for example ubisoft hates sony and MS and only like Nintendo
but the WiiU being more powerful than this gen and the new xbox is a fact
I love how Nintendo fans back then were like "We don't care about graphics".
Now that they have a next-gen console they're like "Haha, our console is better than yours. Better graphics, better everything bitches!!!"
people who say that if a game has bad graphics are saying that many amazing games suck like ocarina of time or mario 64…
I see no difference.
the fact that you're blatantly lying makes me laugh.
You're actually so mad that you dont know what you're saying.
@MrFoolD technical strides forward, often translate into better realized worlds and stronger gameplay innovation. Also, "gamer" is a relative term and their preferences vary quite a bit.
You'd have to be pretty retarded to make a next gen console weaker then the current gen
I have a wiiU 32 gig sitting next to my 360. Nice system Nintendo… The best one yet!!
Its sad that the system doesn't break even to the current gen xbox 360 and ps3. Not that graphics really matter any more.
hypethetically lets say nintendo came out with a console with the the power of the n64 in this day and age do you really think people would actually play it or in your words "true gamers"
It was fun for me at first, but after a few weeks, how the gamepad is used feels….gimmicky and not as fun as when i first played it. Just my experience is all.
wiiu = my old pc the xbox of ps is dog shit with wires in it
WiiU uses a 4650 GPU. it has 320 stream processors 16 texture units and 8 ROP's. The GPU is more powerful than current gen but only just. The difference is so small that WiiU can't run a port from the other consoles in 1080p.
WiiU's CPU is weaker than current gen. It's weaker because Nintendo wanted WiiU to run Wii games and they wanted to do this cheaply. So instead of putting a new modern CPU in there and an old Wii CPU they just used the same CPU architecture Wii used and added two new cores
Well that's exactly what Nintendo did with Wii !. The Xbox1 had more power than Wii. WiiU is on par with current gen. It has a slightly better GPU and slower CPU. So any games that require a lot of CPU use run worse on WiiU.
That's why every game ported to WiiU except Need for Speed either runs and or looks worse on WiiU. Need for Speed had better road textures on WiiU but also had multiplayer reduced from 8 to 6.
Xbox1 more powerful than a Wii? Would love to see how you came to that conclusion.
I came to that conclusion the same way most people who know about hardware and web site did. The Xbox1 was running most games of the time in 60fps. It even had some 1080i games. Even if I didn't know anything about hardware I would have came to the same conclusion playing games like Doom3, Farcry Half Life2 on Xbox1.
Go look at the hardware for yourself. All Wii was was an overclocked Gmecube, It used the same CPU and GPU.
oh wow you're first line is really something haha. You came to that conclusion the same way most people who know about hardware and website did? So u basically saying u know about websites? cool man hahahaha.
Well if they use the same processor for the WiiU as the Wii and u say as the Gamecube then how come you cant play gamecube games on a WiiU anymore? I'm just saying adding that backwards compatability to it is just a piece of cake if they use the same processor…
I think ur full of @#$%
Well you cant really compare the WiiU to a five or what is it six year old ps3 and Xbox 360. The graphics are always lower when a console is not on the market so long, compare the 1st few ps3 games to the ones out now, u see huge improvements in graphics as mostly games at launch are rushed into release. As no one will buy a console when there are no games available.
And ofcourse the new ps4 and xbox 720 will have better graphics, but Nintendo has always been about innovation.
The reason it can't play Gamecube games anymore as there is no support for Gamecube pads and memory cards., They most likely wanted to save money. The Gamecube is 12 years old so it's not like anyone is going to buy Gamecube games. Why do you think WiiU is 100% backwards compatible with Wii games despite not having Wii hardware in there?. PS4 and Nextbox won't run PS3 or 360 games, only launch PS3's ran PS2 games because they had the PS2 CPU.
I don't care what you think.Why should I give a fuck
How can I not compare WiiU to PS3 or 360? When PS3 and 360 lunched they never ran PS2 or Xbox ports worse than the older consoles?. Every port on WiiU either looks and or runs worse on WiiU except Need for Speed which has better road textures, even then that game had multiplayer pared back on WiiU. Do you see the difference? PS3 and 360 never launched with ports of games from the previous gen and just so happened to run them worse so…
Also at the start of this gen developers were just getting used to using programmable pixel shaders as up until then they used transform and lighting. So developers didn't put the pixel/vertex shaders to good use. They also were using Unreal Engine3 for the first time. Everything they have learnt over the last few years on 360/PS3 would easily translate into WiiU development. WiiU doesn't use a new GPU, it's a low end part from 2008 and they know the CPU architecture. WiiU has a poor CPU
The Wii is clocked slightly lower than a Xbox with a PPC versus an almost Pentium III CPU. It had a better shader count and video ram than the Gamecube as well but not by a whole lot. What more does a Wii need to overcome the Xbox, but a bit of an overclock. Do you have any benchmarks synthetic or otherwise?
i got the wii u and its CLOSE ENOUGH! with the graphics
A true gamer has a balanced view of the importance of gameplay, story, and graphics altogether.
I was talking about the original Xbox before we knew the new XBOX was going to be named XBOX1
so the ps3 and xbox360 are dog sgit with wires on it?
With the power of an n64. Not and n64. Developers wouldn't make anything for the system and it would be borderline useless.
oh man, i love how retarded the name xbox one is, its already causing confusions and it aint even out yet
Yeah it seems like a really stupid decision to call it XBOX 1?
Maybe some advertising agency told MS that Playstation 4 sounds old so call your new console XBOX1 and it will make it look even fresher and more advanced than PS4?.
Who knows why they would go with XB1?.
Which one, the first one? Or the Xbox One?
Case in point.
Oh god, it's happening. We can't tell the difference between the original Xbox and the Xbone when we're debating shit. Jesus, what a fucking stupid name for them to pick.
All this over graphics when i still use my launch model GameCube as my primary gaming console.
Well atleast Nintendo makes consoles ubisoft.
Performance isn't all about graphics, as I can read people think in the comments. It's about lowering loading screen times, simulating greater physics, having more objects on the screen at once… and more.
the rumors are s***
If the first rumor was true, then they would have decided to go with Xbox hardware and make it like an improved GameCube. It's would have been like an Xbox… BUT WITH A TOUCHSCREEN!:):):) :))}}} – Troll Face Emoticon! All New!
It's sad to hear this from the future…
When the rumors were actually true…
