    Wii graphics

    Hey guys, i dont know if this has been widely discussed or anything.. if it is, just let me know.

    Now I know that the graphics will probably not match up to ps3 or 360. But does anyone know if it will be like current ps2 graphics? or inbetween a ps2 and ps3/360?

    all ive heard is that it will be a bit better than the GC graphics. hopefully its better than the ps2 and xbox graphics. but i would rather the developers work on gameplay rather than graphics.
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Better than PS2's graphics, are you kidding? Gamecube has better graphics than PS2 and looking at Super Mario Galaxy, it's graphics may be better than the Xbox and, in some cases, close to the Xbox 360's graphics.

    I'm not sure about the PS3's graphics because so much of it's videos are not true gameplay, but I don't think they're that much better than the 360's.


    *EDIT* It also depends on what you think good graphics are. Do you want realistic graphics like Hal-life 2 has or cool cel-shaded graphics like LOZ: WW and Sly Cooper? Both styles have their good points, in my opinion.

    if sony is charging $600 for a PS3, the graphics should be better. if not im sure we might see sony fanboys go and slash the executives throats.

    yeah it has been said by many people that the GC has better graphics. And i have heard many rumors saying that its closer to the 360's graphics. I personally believe that it will be close to playing a 360 on a regular tv.

    EMPHASIS on close

    Actually, according to the wii's current specs, the graphics should be over the original xbox's graphics. if you dont believe me, compare the wii's specs to the xbox's (not the 360).

    it is definatley better than the gc's, no worries there. It isnt that close to 360.

    I agree. I should be close to playing with an X-BOX 360 on a nornal TV.

    Some people say that it shouldn't be better at all because they are focusing on the gameplay. but it really should be better, because graphics are important. though they are not the most important factor. And it's been a few years since the GC so it has to be at least a little better. I am perfectly happy with the graphics like LoZ:TP or MG.

    Dude, PS2 graphics are horrid just trust us on this one. GC has better graphics in the majority of its games.

    The Wii will have great graphics - you also have to understand too that good graphics in a game is heavily dependant on how much effort the game developer puts into making the graphics good. If you take a look at Red Steel, Mario Galaxy, or Smash Brawl you can see that these games are close to many of the 360 games out right now.

    If you've ever played Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, a beautiful game, on the PS2 and then on the Gamecube, you'll see better colors, animations, lighting effects, etc. It's very difficult to find side-by-side pictures of the Gamecube and PS2 versions of games, so check out IGN's Top Ten Best Looking Gamecube Games. The pictures they have don't do them justice, so I would suggest watching the following videos of a few of these games: Metroid Prime2, Star Wars Rogue Squadron, F-Zero GX, and I can't believe they didn't put it on the list, Mario Sunshine.

    Here are a few pics from that list (click to enlarge):

    Also, check out this PS2 vs Gamecube vs Xbox review, which is very telling.

    Since the PS2 came out before the Gamecube and Xbox, it doesn't have as good of graphics as either when it comes to games that release for all the consoles. However, there are some ugly Gamecube games and pretty PS2 games, but for the most part, the Gamecube is noticably better.

    Hope that helps.

    *NOTE* Some of these videos require Quicktime, so if you don't have that, download it here and get the free version; this post took me a while, so I sort of hope you actually watch the videos.
