    Let's Talk Graphics.

    Now, I don't understand why Wii can not use a higher-performance format. I don't understand why. It would be the selling point for Nintendo. I don't want gameplay is better than graphics crap. Everyone cares how a game looks. So, could someone give me an explanation as to why Nintendo cannot update their graphics?

    Because the hardware in the Wii sucks ass and is barely an improvement on the last generation consoles....

    you can't really say everyoen cars how a game looks

    i just want the graphics to be good, which is what the wii does
    wii=good
    xbox 360=awesome
    ps3=superly amazing

    but they have their reasons
    a) development is cheaper for them, so this attracts game developers
    b) producing a machine with better graphics would cost more making nintendo gain less money on the wii(maybe lose some, depending on the 'what if' price)
    c) do'nt mena to be a bitch, but nintnedo does focus mroe on gameplay than it does graphics, not saying that sony and microsoft don't but in terms of gameplay i always found nintnedo products better
    d)a large amount of wii owners just bought it for the casual games(gameplay>graphics)
    e)i'm awesome

    paintballer, it hink he menat improve instead of update...not sure though

    basically what i think he was askign is that why dind't nintendo have better hardware

    no, the selling point for Nintendo is that is costs half as much as the other consoles and anybody, anybody can pick it up and have lots of fun with it.

    plus, they actually make money when they sell a console, $40. times that by the ~9 million consoles they've sold and they've made ~360 million dollars in console sales alone. its gonna take a lot more than a bunch of fanboys whining that the graphics don't look as good as the other consoles for them to change their minds.

    and it doesn't matter. look at Metroid Prime 3. the graphics Retros has accomplished with a seemless control scheme is 10 dollars less than a game like Halo 3, which might look pretty, but still has the semi-awkward dual-analog control scheme.

    Exactly. Why can't they have better hardware. I mean, I won't be a joker and say I don't care about graphics, but I do. I really do. I like a great game with great graphics and great gameplay! A well-rounded library and gaming experience just boosts up the money for Nintendo and gives us more satisfaction. I mean, come on. Nintendo loves that money!

    EDIT: FWELR: Maybe so, but It still cannot compare to Halo 3 in size, and that is where Retro is lacking.

    Frankly, the Wii is pathetic of right now. No good games, no anything that good out. Maybe MP3 will make the Wii shake a little. Then SMG, then SSBB !

    Then the Wii will dominate.

    i can't believe you just compared a Metroid game to a Halo game in terms of size. i beat Halo and Halo 2 on legendary in the time it took me to get half the items in Metroid Prime 2 on hard. the only thing halo has going for it is online multiplayer, which is, as anyone would have to admit, damn near perfect, but still the single player mode is hella shallow.

    Yeah I was disappointed at first because I already had the 360 a while before the wii came about. But I gotta tell ya, the graphics didn't come off as 'bad' as I thought, I actually forgot about the graphics and was more focused on the motion controls. Its not the graphics for me in the wii.. Its the games and the way you play them. If I want graphics, I turn on my PS3. But actually I love my wii a lot more its an amazing system, there are no flaws, its a perfect machine down to the name of it. 'Wii'
