    What is the Wii's graphic potential? A little disappointed so far

    Hello, I'm new to the forums. First post.

    I got the Wii a few days ago. I love playing it and don't regret the purchase at all. However, I'm a little disappointed in a few things, but I only want to discuss one.

    I was under the impression that even though the Wii is the least graphically capable machine out of the current gen consoles, it still has a lot of power under the hood. Currently, All the games I'm seeing are no better visually than GC games. Is the Wii basically a GC with Wi-Fi and motion sensor controllers?

    I'm not expecting much, but at least something that looks better than Xbox classic graphics would be nice.

    So really I'm asking those that have a good knowledge of what kind of power the Wii has.....Does this system have the capabilities of delivering games that look close to as nice as a 360 or are we stuck at GCness in that department?

    Wii has great graphic potential far above that of the original Xbox. Not near the 360 though. The problem is developers think they can just port crappy titles, slap on some motion sensitivity, and it'll sell. Very few developers are making original wii titles, therefore they don't bother to upgrade the graphics.

    Metriod 3 looks like next gen Graphic's. Zelda wasn't too bad, Mario G and Super Smash look nice too.

    1st: Thanks!
    2nd: Graphics do matter to me somewhat, although how good and fun the game is doesn't really depend on graphics. Nice graphics are nice to look at though.
    3rd: That is actually the first time I've seen a preview for Super Smash Brothers. It looks really good I'm going to have to get it when it comes out. It still looks kinda GCish.

    Is this likely to continue or will the Wii most likely have a lot stronger titles that take advantage of more of its power soon (especially 3rd party developers)?

    Wii has better graphical potential than Game Cube, PS 2 and Xbox.

    But not xbox360 and PS3 obviously.

    So yeh, thats pretty much the answer

    Thanks. I didn't double post however. I was responding to two separate comments by quoting them and adding my question or comment.
