    Was anyone else disappointed with the graphics on the wii?

    I have been putting it off for awhile until the price finally came down, and then I went and bought the Wii I spent $400 total with all the accessories yet I don't see where it can even compare with the xbox 360, or PS3... I wonder if Nintendo plans to improve on it.

    For those of you that have the wii, is the limited memory an issue when saving games?

    the Wii is more about quality controls and gameplay than graphics. get Mario Galaxy, Zelda Twilight Princess, Mario Kart, and Smash Bros. Brawl. you'll see what i mean

    No I knew they wernt gonna be the best when I got it
    Nar there good
    FOR NOW!!!!
    If all you care about is graphics GET A 360!!!
    (note there are a few games on both PS3 and 360 and the 360s ones look better)
    As mentioned above
    It also supports SD mem cards

    Quality controls and shovelware


    Game play > Graphics
    Looks can only take you so far

    If you're disappointed with the graphics then you really should have done enough research to realize that the hardware is essentially that of an overclocked GameCube before you bought it.

    while nintendo is focusing on bringing more people who dont usually play video games to the gaming industry and not focusing on the hardcore gamers, I do believe that they have the money to make a console with graphics like microsoft and sony

    I don't know why you think hardcore = porn....
    "Hardcore" is simply an adjective. It describes a type of porn, it describes a type of game (or gamer), etc.

    If I said I had a fast car, and then later on you hear someone mention a fast computer, would you ask them why they're talking about cars?

    lol. No need to get technical or serious. It is only Prinny's dark humor which I found quite funny.

    As everyone has said, Nintendo has focused much more on gameplay and innovation rather than graphics.

    Id rather think that its porn and not a kinda of noise (some call it music).

    The turm "Hardcore gamer" is just a idiots way of critasizeing there hatred of a certain game/console because they don't like it.
    "Wow im so hardcore I played Halo for two hours in a row today"
    "Thats not hardcore I played it for five hours"
    "Nar none of you are as Halo sucks the balls of a long dead donkeys dad"
    "Id like to point out that I once played Phantasy Star online offline all night and all day with out any sleep I R TEH HARDESTCORE GAMER!"

    Point is
    If a game/person is classed as "hardcore" it doesn't make it "fun"/them any better
    Fun games/people are better than a game/person that is called "hardcore" but is in fact boring waste of time.
    Bit like all these "Hardcore" games rants

    And Halo

    And off-line on-line games

    But not hardcore porn
    Thats fun for all the family

    Ok maybe not all the family
    Just the grown ups

    Ok and the teenage kids in there dark bedrooms on there "hidden folders" while listening to there "rap" songs that they think are "phat" and playing Halo whatevernumberitsonnow and ranting about how "Hardcore" they are over the mic to there "friends" that are probably people like Gary Glitter on the prowl for pictures of kids in there pants whilst trying to speak like one of the "kids" and not sound like some old fart with a weak bladder.

    Have to say, I don't care about the graphics... I think it's a machine designed for fun games... I used to be a 'hardcore' gamer when the PS2 came out... I know at the time the graphics were outstanding, but now I prefer games that are fun rather than frustrating.

    And hey - get the "Wii Me" accurate enough, and it's even better - love it!

    :D

    I never expected much from the graphics. It was meant for gameplay, specifically for multiplayers (wii probably pronounced as 'we' for a reason) I used to be a 100% nintendo fan (besides FF games), but the wii is also one of my biggest disappointments.
    I mean, how many great games r out there? Only a few (IMO).
    And the price of the hardware may fool you, but the fully loaded controllers is about $85 bucks a piece + batteries, then u have the over-price crappy quality (I mean gameplay/storyline wise) games.

    Honestly can't see myself buying another 360 game... Ever. I don't own a 360 anymore, but i'll pick one up before a wii game. I'm gonna switch over to my PS3 (full time) if I can get my wii sold.

    Nintendo, you've just lost another disappointed costumer

    There's no way in the world this day and age to be impressed with SD video or graphics. We have been shown the one true light, 1080P resolution, and our love is for it and it only. Since I know it is low resolution I just enjoy the game experience like I did in the pre HD days.

    Think of it this way
    There was a load of shite on all consoles.
    You know the titles that we forget about
    Everybody has fond memory's of playing the good games but forget about the bad ones that they never played.(thats probably why)

    To say that a consoles entire back catalogue is flawless is unwise.
    Even the Atari 2600/VCS had a load of shite on there

    That may be true, but crap after crap... It's been going on long enough. I know new games for the wii is targeted for non-gamers and adults, but it shouldn't be another piece of crap. Fond memories die eventually and the bad ones will always be forgotten after a while.

    Never said it was, and it's true because nothing is ever truly perfect.
    Atari, Atari... Can't we just back track to those once great games of it's time again? *sigh*
