    How powerful will the Wii be?

    http://www.nintendorevolution.ca/051..._with_xbox_360
    This article states that "According to this article on the site, Mozlapunk has recently spoken to a "reliable source" who claims that Nintendo's Wii console will be capable of displaying graphics that "will be visually on par with the Xbox 360 and may even exceed it slightly." This certainly has gotten many gamers' tongues wagging, since according to IGN they weren't expecting the console's graphical performance to be any more powerful than a slightly souped up Xbox console."
    I have to say, that when I showed the E3 trailer of Red Steel to a friend, the first thing he said was "This is an FMV right?".
    As far as I can tell, the graphics for pretty much all of the new Wii games are beautiful, which is why I can believe this happening. I mean, just imagine this major blow to the competition!

    precisely. That was what I was thinking. But one of my users posted something about the aftershow demonstration, and it looking much better.

    While I don't doubt the games will be improved over the Gamecube, it will not be comparable to Xbox 360 games or PS3 in due time. The guy made mention of every game at E3 using the actual Wii's, but, I've heard from an alternate source, http://www.penny-arcade.com/, that they were actually running on Gamecubes rather than Wii's. I guess it's open for debate?

    It has to do with the developers. I mean Resident Evil 4 was/is one of the best looking games around. Graphically looks great, its all about maximizing the potiental of a console.

    It's not like Xbox graphics were all that bad though. Besides, they're forgetting the fact that it's a 'souped up' meaning better than. That doesn't mean that the graphics are rubbish, merely less powerful than a 360, if the article is wrong. If it is right, I think Wii may have an even bigger monopoly over the console market this time!

    They're "word sizes". They're actually less important than they sound. Nowadays computers tend to be 32 or 64 bit.

    right, the word size hasn't mattered to video game consoles for about 5 years now. computers are just now making the move into 64 bit, meaning the n64 was about 10 years ahead of pc development in that regard. since then the hardware has developed to handle different word sizes, and now its more about how fast the hardware can pump the words through its pipeline.
