You have been warned. This is one of those stories that I would only post on the weekend!
As I was searching through various blogs, I came across French blog ActuJV. The owner of the blog has posted a little information concerning the Wii, and its graphical capabilities. This same person claims that they have obtained information from a trusted source.
Nintendo has been showing a lot of Wii trailers lately. We have just recently seen the trailers for BWii and Mario Strikers Charged. I would say that the graphics in these games are very good, but that is just me. I realize that they aren’t up to 360 standards, but I don’t think they need to be. I can appreciate a system for what it can do…just as I would say that StarFox Command has good graphics. I know there are still a few out there that find the Wii graphical capabilities less than passable, but ActuJV says not to worry!
According to him, or his source I should say, Nintendo has been playing us the fool all along. They have been showing us trailers for games that have deliberately downgraded graphics compared to what the Wii can actually do. This is to create an element of surprise for the press during Nintendo’s next media event. I am guessing that would end up being the September 14th press event. During this show they will show off Wii graphics that are “of a quality far exceeding the Xbox”, shocking us all.
I thought all these graphical debates were over and done with, but I guess I was wrong! As far as I knew, everyone has long since dealt with any issues they had with the Wii when it came to graphics. Now we have a blog claiming we will all be surprised very soon. I couldn’t resist posting this on the weekend, I am guessing it will get a pretty good debate going! My stance…this story is total bull. The only element of it that could be true is saying that Nintendo hides things from us. We know that they love to do that!
