    New pikmin. I can't really say I don't want it.

    I don't really play on consoles as much as I used to. There are other things I'd want to invest in first, but I might get one eventually! Nintendo has never disappointed me.

    Really depends on what games it will have, I don't really keep up with new consoles since they come out so frequently.
    Just Zelda games I bother getting anyway, so it's not really worth the investment to buy a new console.

    Because all you can come up with is 2 words. First off you cannot disagree with the facts and secondly you cannot reply constructively to my opinion or intentions.

    The Wii U's graphics are at least on par with, if not a bit better than, current Xbox/PS3 games. Yes, that's fairly old tech, but compare the Xbox's launch titles to its current ones. As developers learn to use the hardware better, the graphics will likely improve. Will it be as good looking as the next Xbox or the PS4? Absolutely not, but I don't think you can call it worse than current gen consoles.

    Wii U has higher/equal graphics to PS3 and Xbox 360.

    I already think that the current generation consoles look fairly bad, some games to me are unplayable because of their blurryness due to the low resolution (720p) compared to the PC. I own a PS3 and yes there are some good looking games, but the current generation of consoles being so greatly behind the times in technology is holding back the forward development of games.

    The current consoles already limit developers too much, and bringing out a next generation console with the intention of adding some mainstream popular titles without moving forward is terrible. They are bringing out a next generation console with the performance of the already greatly outdated current generation. These limitations holding back developers eventually end up also effecting the PC market, specifically in the case of multiplatform games.

    Go back to the launch of the XBOX 360 and it was already out of date compared to PC's by time it was released, and 6 years later you're launching a system with the same capabilities?



    But hey, that's fine and I'm sure it will have some cool games, but don't think that you can slap together an ipad and over half a decade outdated graphical computing power and call it "Revolutionary"

    Nintendo as far as console is concerned has been disappointing since after the SNES. They only cater to first party games and have been trying to use gimmicky tech for the last few consoles and its terrible. The handheld systems is what keeps Nintendo going and has been great thou I despise the 3Ds.

    Depends, if they release a pokemon for it, or even a super mario sunshine I would. If they didnt, probably not.

    Depends on the list of other launch titles. Only game interests me so far is ZombiU

    This is backwards compatible with Wii games right? If so I might just pick up games such as Xenoblade, Last Story, Skyward Sword etc.

    Dragon Quest X is coming out for Wii/Wii U so that's something.

    Not sure yet...I liked the concept of Wii but I just don't play it as there aren't many games that really appeal to my interests. The Wii was certainly kind of underwhelming graphically but if it's on par with Xbox 360 then it's good enough for me, I've never really played those games for graphics anyways...Wii was just a little too...bleh.

    If it's cheap enough I may pick one up shortly after release if there are good launch titles. Otherwise, I'll wait a while like I did with my 360.

    Don't get me wrong, it's not about the graphics but mostly about resolutions/clarity.... I can't stand blurryness, i've become accustomed to playing high res PC games and I just can't do it. I played the Bulletstorm demo on my PS3 and it was like trying to play a game with vassaline spread over my screen.

    But It isnt about graphics, I love the Pokemon series of games, I played through FF7 again as recently as last year, and I still play a bunch of old PC games, I have a Sega Arcade emulator that lets me play Sega Rally. It's about clarity and I ask myself why do I want to play this game on this console when I can play it on the PC? Because 95% of all the games I like are also on the PC.

    Gran Turismo 5 was a good example, fantastic looking game but if you compare it to a PC game up close and if you look at the textures it really is quite blurry, just that the devs did a masterful job at using what they had efficiently and artistically. That being my first PS3 title though it did take some adjusting, it looks best when you're sitting halfway accross the room from it, which is hard when my PS3 is connected to my PC monitor.

    Graphics matter, a game looking good and most importantly being clear in detail and smooth in FPS is important. WoW does not have good graphics, very average at best. But everything is clear and sharp and with smooth FPS it runs great.


    F1 2011 on the PS3 - Compared to the PC I found this unplayable, low fps and fps drops in graphically heavy areas, with the graphics overall not even looking so great either, usual blurry nonsense. How can anyone consider it playable? I wish they had reduced the candyfloss and made it play smooth and look clean.
