    Shrink LoZ:TP down to a screen that small and it would look HD. Seriously. People often forget that screen size really does matter when doing any sort of video. 1080P on a typical 30" screen isn't generally going to look any better than 720P due to the screen size. Same thing applies when you're talking about tiny screens.

    It's not just resolution though. Everything about the graphics looks better than most Wii games, including the character models, the level of detail, the 3D modeling, etc.

    Beyond all the obvious already mentioned a SCREEN SHOT is going to look as good as the screen it was shot FROM, and the CAMERA that took it, allong with the resolution of the camera etc... I can promise you, that is not a shot taken directly from an iPhone.

    Screen shots are some of the most misleading things in the world, especially if you are using them solely to base what game looks better. Unless you hook multiple consoles to the SAME exact TV, and use the SAME exact camera on the SAME exact settings and resolution, there is no way possible for an accurate comparison.

    Output the image from an iPhone into my 65" Mitsubishi DLP set, and It wouldn't look any better than a Wii game. I'd bet on it. Somebody already nailed that one, shrink any Wii game down to the iPhone and it will look HD...

    The DS is a $170 system, the iPhone is what $800? The DS isn't made to look awesome because the cost would make the system a lot higher than what consumers would spend.

    That screen is stretched out quite a bit. The iPhone screen is much smaller.

    What about Wii screenshots? The ones you see online aren't TV sized. I don't recall the last time I saw a 50" screenshot...

    So are you guys saying that Wii games with great looking screenshots look like absolute pixelated crap on a real TV? If not, why is that the case with the iPhone game? How do you know it'd be worse?

    The screenshots I posted aren't that much smaller than most Wii screenshots.

    The iPhone isn't $800. I'm not sure what it would cost to buy it without a plan, but you can get the 8GB versions for $199. Regardless, the 8GB iPod Touch is only $225 now. It is an immensely more powerful gaming platform, plus it's an iPod, mobile internet browser, backup drive, photo gallery, video viewer, etc.

    Thats due to the size difference of different peoples monitors (19" CRT owner here)
    A massive pic on web sites will take up a lot of space so theres scaled down
    Let me explian with pics
    [​IMG]

    (I cant be arsed to go threw loads of screen grabs to find a better one)

    Now zoom into that (without clicking) (Ctrl and +/- on firefox)
    It will look like crap thats kinda what would happen if you put a iphone game on a tv

    Anyway screen shots make a game look good but what about when its in motion?
    There have been games in the past that looked really good till you saw them moving

    I admid is better than the starting Wii games of 2006, but now I think is equal than some Wii games launched this year, Tenchu, Musroom Men and Ghostbusters have better graphics than this, plus can you tell me who is the developer. Probably I send a email to them, asking if they can start making Wii games.

    I really don't care what system, tv, etc your are talking about, screenshots are a bullshit way to judge a game graphically. All the issues already pointed out in this thread.

    Motion changes everything. Framerate, resolution, etc... still images *should* look ****ing fantastic, regardless of the rest of the crap. But if you are using a few screenshots to judge the finished product... good luck with that.

    Sort of like game commercials that only show the beautiful and amazing cut scene footage from a game, and never show the REAL gameplay... I hope you don't buy games based off that crap or screenshots...

    I don't think you guys understand. If the iPhone game would look worse blown up bigger based on the screenshot, so should Wii games assuming the screenshots are of the same size.

    The DSi is what? It doesn't do anything the iPhone/Touch does.

    Well theres the general "touch" thing. It also has a camera and you can download music. You can play (better) games on it and send messages to friends. It has internet browsing capabilities and a general online play feature. Also you can record voice/sound and edit it in all sorts of ways which I'm not sure if the i-phone can do. It has a forcast channel and a news channel like the Wii. Also later it will include Gameboy games for download, like its own little Virtual Console.


    In fact, all the iPhone has on the DSi is that... well it's a phone.
