6 years later and we're still making fun of the Wii? Might as well put Wii U in between PS3 and PC.

MFW people on FJ believe that resolution is "graphics". Take Crysis for example, put it on low settings with 1080p resolution. Looks like complete **** . Put it on 1080x760 on max settings and it will look far, far better. This is because "graphics" includes all kinds of visual effects such as lighting, post processing, particle effects, shadows, resolution of actual object textures etc.

you're a ******* idiot, ps3 and xbox both run at the same graphics, there is a minimal difference between them depending on the game you're running
User avatar #274 to #260 - specialops (10/30/2012) [-]
thats why its the same image, but one has a litte more detail.

I know, right? The minimal difference shown in the content doesn't reflect the minimal difference in reality at all! And I'm inexplicably angry about that!

idiot PS3 and xbox 360 run at the same graphics, (1080p) the only reason people believe that ps3 is better is that xbox 360 originated without hdmi while the ps3 started with it
#261 to #253 - dsdanny (10/30/2012) [-]
I'd say ps3 exclusives look a lot better than xbox games. (things like uncharted and killzone)

PS3 and Xbox 360 can't run at 1080p. They run at 720p with an HDMI max.
User avatar #262 to #255 - xern (10/30/2012) [-]
Playstation 3 can run up to 1080p. Depending on what HDMI cable and/or television resolution
User avatar #259 to #255 - nigroz (10/30/2012) [-]
False, my Xbox 360 does indeed run at 1080p on a 42" TV with hdmi
#257 to #255 - swaggsterbater (10/30/2012) [-]
really? lol i didnt know that, but still OG xbox 360 never had HDMI.

No the reason for that is two fold. One PS3 has different software and they discovered that dlc works differently on the console that and the fact that microsoft has very deep pockets and would've kept it from ps3 for as long as they could regardless to make xbox more of a success. Yes I have an xbox 360, but i generally find there to be no graphical difference in between skyrim and dawnguard.

XBOX/PS3 Are the same deal with you mad **** bags.
User avatar #244 - anonymouzx (10/30/2012) [-]
PS3 and Xbox are the same. I don't see how xbox is put down all the way there.
User avatar #242 - bullard (10/30/2012) [-]
Why do people always bring up console wars? I mean ill admit i grew up with playstation but then switched to xbox purely because most of my friends were on xbox. But i dont exactly shun the "non-believers" who play PS3 or PC. The only thing that matters is whether you're having fun. or not.

I'll be honest here and say there's not much difference between the PS3 and 360. This left me with no reason to pick on over the other except for one thing: I grew up with Playstation. I know that might be a stupid reason to pick a console, but I'd rather support the creators of my childhood when picking one out (when there's not much difference anyway). That small reason pushed my decision a bit further. I don't understand these flame wars...
User avatar #240 to #232 - Shramin ONLINE (10/30/2012) [-]
I prefer the 360 because I prefer the controller, I grew up with Nintendo (got a Super Famicom when I was 6) so I enjoy playing the Wii and will want the Wii-U and I have the PS3 for the exclusives =].
if I favoured the PS3 controller it would be the main instead of 360.
User avatar #245 to #240 - Blue Blur (10/30/2012) [-]
I do enjoy a lot of Wii games myself, but if anything the controllers put me off. I find it a lot more comfortable holding a controller like the PS3 or 360 so the Wiimote and Nunchuk felt a little strange. It's worth it just to play Galaxy or Twilight Princess though. I can't wait for the Wii U simply because there's a pro controller :)
Also, I think the 360 controller is better which is why a lot of PC games let you use that instead of the keyboard. I'm really used to the PS controller now though so it'd be quite hard to switch.
User avatar #276 to #245 - Shramin ONLINE (10/31/2012) [-]
I agree on the controller part, I've been playing mostly games that can use the GC controller. Twilight princess I played the GC version and twisting my mind into the mirrored wii version is more tedious then fun (I remember locations but they are reversed). So like you the WIi-U is big for me because of the Controller that looks boss.
PS controller is better for the fighting games, the new 360 controller remedies it for me though as I am not a ******** fighting game player.
User avatar #284 to #276 - Blue Blur (10/31/2012) [-]
I do own a lot of fighting games on PS3 and I hadn't realised that before. I've only ever used the 360 controller a couple of times but I noticed the A, B, X, Y buttons stick out a bit more than the PS so I can see your point. I suppose it would be quite frustrating playing both versions, but eventually when the new Zelda game is released it'll be a Wii U exclusive which is good since graphics won't be a problem (even though they didn't hinder previous games too much).
User avatar #288 to #284 - Shramin ONLINE (10/31/2012) [-]
Its more about the D-pad then the 4 buttons :P.

Graphics have never been a necessity for quality games, When the ps1 came out I still thought the ALTTP game was the best looking game out there.
Fun means a lot
User avatar #289 to #288 - Blue Blur (10/31/2012) [-]
Ah, I actually didn't remember what the D-Pad was like on the Xbox since I haven't used it in a while, but I remember playing Tekken with it and preferred the PS version.

I agree that fun is the most important part of a game which is why I'm really confused as to why most people ignore the Wii because of its graphics. Perhaps they think it's too casual, but there's a ton of brilliant titles on there which I could never sell.
User avatar #290 to #289 - Shramin ONLINE (10/31/2012) [-]
People said windwaker was going to be **** due to its cell shaded graphics and constant young link.
They were wrong.
User avatar #291 to #290 - Blue Blur (10/31/2012) [-]
Yup, as long as there's a good storyline and fun gameplay, it can look like whatever it wants. My main console was a Wii for 3 years before I got a PS3 and was perfectly happy (and still am) with it. I'll be so glad when the Wii U is released because hopefully people will appreciate Nintendo a lot more.

Actually while the PS3 has a better processor (and can render more particle effects), the xBox has a better GPU and can render higher detail textures.

But either way PC just decimates all consoles, if you have the money.

Let's see here. I'd choose Wii + PC.
Wii for the exclusive games and PC for everything else. Btw, this has been done so many times before so it's kind of annoying at this point. Please stop with the console wars and stick to your own business. Thank you sir.
User avatar #254 to #229 - aerius (10/30/2012) [-]
I agree. I haven't touched my poor 360 in forever due to my PC just being better at playing the same games.
