Need for Speed: Mosted Wanted U is graphically superior than current consoles

With the announcement of Need for Speed: Mosted Wanted U during the most recent Nintendo Direct, it was nice to see just how well Criterion is putting the Wii U to the test. You can see the announcement in the above footage, which looks great, but you can’t really notice the difference between the Xbox 360 and Wii U versions until you start comparing side-by-side screenshots. Then the Wii U blows the Xbox 360 out of the water.

Remember that the textures used in the Wii U version of the game were also those used in the PC version, which is typically the graphically superior version thanks to better processing power and more RAM than consoles. What do you think about these shots? These are pretty solid proof that the Wii U has what it takes to compete in next generation, if developers are willing to take advantage of the Wii U’s processing power as Criterion has done.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted U will be available on March 19th.

Thanks Andrew!

    I don’t doubt for a minute that the potential is there, and great games sell systems. What I don’t understand is that the Wii U was announced two years ago and it seems that developers just got development kits. Also, I would think that Nintendo has had to of been developing Wii U games for awhile now. I just want to see something from them soon that justifies the Wii U purchase. 

    • sharlo galmo

      Nintendo has gift the last development kits seven months ago, so they where to late with that. And it was bad from nintendo, that’s why people must be patient, cause the goodlookings games are coming!

    • DK_Hadouken

      They”re always first at using and mastering their new hardware. They’ve been cooking stuff up for a while and keeping it all hidden, it’s what they do.

      • david daniel wharton camacho

         like i said in the other news, wait for e3 for mayor 1st party tittles to be announced for wii u and 3ds

      • thedeciderU

        Hidden, yes. Annoying. You bet. Eventually others would copy them anyway haha

    • Fred

      I think developing HD games takes longer than Nintendo expected. I’m hoping they’ll hire more people or buy out more studios so that they can pump out more games

  • sharlo galmo

    Wii u version indeed superior, and this still a port. If the game was build from the beginning from the wii u, i will be a lot better, and this looks awsome!!

    • BellsGhost

      Nope, not true. Already been proven that Wii U is SLIGHTLY more powerful than 360/PS3. Wait until the new consoles release though, then once again, Nintendo will be left behind.

      • Neil Sinclair

        Doesn’t really matter if they are more powerful. I’d rather play something hard (i.e collecting 120 stars on mario galaxy) than some 12 year old kid on COD and the rubbish that is kinect. If I want power I will play on my PC, which is already superior than the PS4/Nextbox so their supposed ‘power’ is already a joke. I bought my wii U to play nintendo games, and am loving it. Why would nintendo go down the power/graphics route like the other 2 when they can create their own market and produce real games unlike the COD/unchartered/Halo 4 rubbish I recently played. The way forward is PC for power, nintendo for games. 

        • Elem187

          Couldn’t have said it better myself.

      • Fred

        Yes the PS3 will be more powerful than the Wii U and the Xbox will probably also be more powerful (we won’t know for sure until they announce it). However, your “Nintendo will be left behind” point is only valid if talking about power. If you compare the Wii PS3 & 360, the PS360 had much more power, but the Wii sold more consoles and the best selling games were mostly on the Wii. (PS3 had 0 games sell more than 15 million, 360 had 1 game sell more than 15 million, Wii had 7 games sell more than 15 million)

        • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

           Not the Wii sold more shit again!!  The Wii was a novelty item- novelty items always sell -once!  The games sold on the Wii were sold because there was hardly anything good for the system.

          • Fred

            I don’t know what you’re talking about I have a PS3 and had a Wii and we played the Wii 3X more than we did the PS3 cause we had more fun with the Wii games than we did the PS3 games. Plus I work with 1 other guy that enjoys playing PS3 and almost all the guys I work with own and enjoy the Wii

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            the games were sold because there were no good games for the system…

            You speak like you started into gaming few years ago and don’t know that Nintendo has always the novelty factor in their consoles.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

             I started into gaming more than a few years ago and Nintendo was never the novelty game maker, but the Wii was, meaning that it was not a serious item, just a brief pop culture item that came and went much like Rubik’s Cube, Teddy Ruxpin, Cabbage Patch dolls, Tickle Me Elmo, mood rings, tie die shirts and pet rocks.  Once the novelty wore off, people were still choosing real systems over the Wii.  Oh yeah, for those who like facts – look at the sales.

          • Neil Sinclair

            kinect with its disney iterations, yup real hardcore gaming there. Expect more of it nextgen too when most of xbox’s profits come from kinect with lots of dancing and kiddie games, you’ll be crying for a PC and nintendo console.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

             They only did that to appeal to the Wii crowd.  I won’t be crying for anything since I won’t be playing Kinenct games!  Now if they do force a Kinect with the system (I guess to when over causal gamers), then the PS4 controller looks like a better option since it is all in one.  I may switch teams.

            but still a better console than 360. If there ever was a casual console for casual gamers it will be the next xbox, with kinect at the ready and always online enabled, look forward to more disney kinect games on your ‘powerful’ system. If you want a real console, go PC and nintendo.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

        who gives a fuck about power, how has that turned out last gen exactly

      • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

        As in slightly you mean 150 – 200%? Then if that is slightly, tell me what is the ps4 which is about 300 -350% more powerful then ps3 (so 100 maybe 120% then wiiu, agreed the overall hardware is superior, I give you that, but impressive graphics, not really maybe Square will show it with FFXV @ e3)

        Does that make PS4 and probably 720 godlike? I suppose my 2 year old pc is divine then, as it eats PS4/720/WiiU for breakfast.

        • Nothing5555

          Any PC can eat the next gen console boxes for breakfast if you invest more money into it.

          Actually to me the PC is the best example of why graphics are not the end all be all.  If i upgrade my PC and play the same games with better resolution/effects how much will my enjoyment of that game increase?  Probably not by much.

    • BellsGhost

      Lol. Keep telling yourself that. Doesn’t change the fact you wasted money on the Wii U.

      • Fred

        There was no money wasted. I’ve had a ton of fun with my Wii U so my money was well spent.

      • sharlo galmo

        wasted money why?????? Dude bayonnetaa 2 wonderfull 101 metroid zelda 3d mario mariokart monolith with X fzero watchdogs blacklist rainbow six and a lot more games are coming….and i wast my money hahahahaha you let me laugh. if i want play other games then

      • Neil Sinclair

        The fact I’m enjoying my wii u means I think it is money well spent. Already using it more than I did my ps3 and xbox 360, which I sold as got bored of the constant shooters/no imaginative gameplay/lack of real power compared to my PC.

        • oontz

          You never owned the ps3 or 360… It’s okay you can admit it.

      Of course they’re saying that. It’s called marketing. Wait until the actual game is out, then we’ll see who’s laughing.

      • sharlo galmo

        Are you blind dude? compare the picture above, for me that’s enough prooof!!

        • sdmac200600

          well as much as I hate to say it, he could be right. look at aliens. the “gameplay” looks AMAZING. then what happened when it came out, IT WAS TERRIBLE!

          • David

            That’s not even the same comparison. Criterion is improving a game that is already awesome. They have live demos for it.

          • sdmac200600

            Gearbox had “live demos” also. They had 6 years to polish it.

          • David

            But aliens sucked period. Criterion enhanced a game that has proven to be good. Aliens was a game they stuffed in a closet for awhile then they tried to polish it up when they thought “hey let’s release it.” I have all the original articles for it when it was just being thought of. And beside aliens has not been releases yet and I’m not gonna rely on some false game tester that closed his account after that and for some reason thinks he knows how gear box spent sega’s money.

        • NkoSekirei

          bell doesnt realize that the developer confirmed need for speed most wanted is the best version out of the other console version.Ghost must not be reading the article very well

      • audi lover

        Yeah wii u onwers obviously hahahaha im laughing now and yes I do have an 360 and ps3 to before you start

      • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

        lol now that must hurt now doesn’t it “the WEAK WIIU can barely compete with ps360 graphicwise, yet the screenshots litteraly make the ps360 run for their money”

        Atleast one dev uses the wiiu as it was intended in the first place.

        It shows the powers, atleast gives the haters something to think about until ps4/720 are in stores.

      • Andres Trujillo

        Even when there’s proof of it, you still troll. That is dedication. I’m still trying to see who’s the better one, you or Donaaald

      • david daniel wharton camacho

         us… dude you are really dumb, there cant be a big of a change and even if THERE WAS it wouldnt matter because we still like the game, and has better controls, and it has better implementations, and it has new cars, and it has everything your ass needs… like a big kick!

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/QP5U3KCWTYJZHC77QF5V4TZRH4 Derek Ochs

      Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, Uncharted 3… All of these games look on par with this game. So really I don’t see any “In your face” material here.

      I will be getting it for Wii U because it looks great and I’ve been waiting ages for a good NFS game.

      • http://www.facebook.com/aleksander.esentals Aleksander Esentals

         i said in your face because you ps and xbox fanboys now see that wii u is more powerful than 360 and ps3.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Bingham/100000260255063 Chris Bingham

          And I gave you examples of games that show that the PS3 is still several  inches closer too the Wii U

          • NkoSekirei

             nope not even close dude ps3 and 360 specs are outdated and while the wii u is running on 2011 specs

          • audi lover

            Not as close as you think its taken 6 years to get games like that looking as good as they do on my ps3 they looked like ps2 games at start, to be improving graphics like that with in 3 months of console release is difficult to say the least, well done wiiu its obvioulsy a capable little box even if you dont realise it

      • david daniel wharton camacho

         mee too XP i wasnt planning to buy the wii u i was hoping for the xbox720 but when i heard this was coming this march i said…. to hell microsoft! ill stay with zelda, mario,metroid and NFS! if the wiiu will have a nfs game it means theres more to come, + assasins creed? dude all the games that made microsoft unique are coming to nintendo so there is actually no need to wait.

      • Elem187

        Uncharted 3 looked good to you? It looked like a cartoon.

        Crysis 3 eats it lunch…. Heck Crysis 3 would eat Killzone 4’s lunch.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Bingham/100000260255063 Chris Bingham

          Crysis 3 is just a glorified Unreal Engine, Uncharted had detailed put into. Crysis 3 was just like a Shiny car, looks cool but when you look under the hood its a totally different story.

          I’m sorry but even the new Killzone: Shadow Fall game looks better than Crysis because it doesn’t relies on Shiny and glowy effects to make it look good so really if you took all that out of Crysis 3… you’d be saying something COMPLETELY different 

      • David

        Actually no they don’t. I’ve seen a lot if the texture for those games and ps3 has pretty blurry texture. So don’t even go there.

    • Maki

      PS4 & Xbox720 says Hi!

      • Andres Trujillo

        Are you really trying to compare the graphics of them to the Wii U? This article compares them to the 360 and PS3 cause they are the closest thing to it. It’s like comparing N64 to PS2

        • Ben Kapferer

          Well, Wii U is supposed to compete with 720 & PS4, and their releases are right around the corner.

    • michael546k

      Why would you even say that? No one is trying to make a fanboy war. I’ve never seen an xbox or ps fanboy straight up rub something in nintendo fans’ faces when there’s good news for them or bad news for Nintendo. It’s great if your getting the game for your Wii U, but don’t just comment about small things like this just to piss off fanboys.

      • David

        Are u kidding me? Xbox fanboys and ps fanboys are always trolling in nintendo sites. This is a nintendo site. It’s the other way around. Nintendo fanboys hardly ever troll ps or next box site.

    • Nothing5555

      Sigh… there should be no need to say “in your face xbox and ps fanboys” type comments.  The Wii U should be expected to perform better graphically than Xbox360 or the PS3. 

  • BellsGhost

    Lol! Poor Nintendrones. Of course they’re saying Wii U is the better port, they want you tools to purchase this game on the inferior crappy Wii U. The way Aliens:CM turned out bad, this supposed “better” port will end up being either the same as 360/PS3, or only SLIGHTLY different, and even then, the PS3/360 ports are still better. Know why? We have a REAL controller with analog. I actually used the analog for the tight corners. Good luck Nintendrones! Wii U is a cheap piece of plastic.

    • sharlo galmo

      Dude i am not a nintendoddrone, i like ps3 and xbox360 also, i have all consoles. But i think that you are the drone here, this game look way better then the ps3 version, i am honest!!

      Doesn’t really matter if they are more powerful. I’d rather play something hard (i.e collecting 120 stars on mario galaxy) than some 12 year old kid on COD and the rubbish that is kinect. If I want power I will play on my PC, which is already superior than the PS4/Nextbox so their supposed ‘power’ is already a joke. I bought my wii U to play nintendo games, and am loving it. Why would nintendo go down the power/graphics route like the other 2 when they can create their own market and produce real games unlike the COD/unchartered/Halo 4 rubbish I recently played. The way forward is PC for power, nintendo for games. 

      • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

          Really, what is a real game son? Hope you do well in your GCSE’s whilst playing COD lol. Go try and complete super ghouls n ghosts on the SNES if you want a real game.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

             I played that years ago when it first came out.  It was a real game.  I finished it then.  I do not have to try and revisit a past that I already lived through.

          • Neil Sinclair

            will you be getting the next halo/COD/GTA sequels or will you choose not to ‘revisit’ them either lol.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

             I remember when Halo first came out and I was at a get together and they were playing Halo.  I did not an Xbox and I did not like Halo so I felt like the odd man out.  I did not want to tell them that I did not like it. 

            I tried COD but I hate and cannot and do not want to get with FPSs!  GTA – now that is a game you can always depend upon for depth, variety, length, endless fun, non-linearity and with the online – endless replay value!

          • Sonicgill

            GTA was the only decent game on that list.

        • http://twitter.com/SeroReviews SeroReviews

        • Fred

          I guess I have more fun playing baby games than “real games”

        • WiiUltra

          Theres a difference between baby games; rated eC (early childhood) and games that can appeal to EVERYONE. Which are obviously rated E for everyone. Nintendo makes games that anyone can enjoy.

        • DK_Hadouken

           Nintendo makes baby games…? Really, Donaald? You know very well, and you’ve said so yourself, that the other two would jump at buying any of Nintendo’s IPs. Nintendo makes great games. Just because there is no foul language, blood all over, dismemberment up the wahzoo, over the top nonesense, etc. doesn’t make it a baby game. At least when they release a game it’s of HIGH standards, stands the test of time and rarely has any glitches that really do any damage that force ongoing and ongoing patches.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

             Primary colors, characters with big eyes are baby games.  I cannot recall a Nintendo title with a character that looks like a real person, they are all oddball characters.  Now it is good for variety as I like a variety, but that is all Nintendo’s focus is and it is what is finally killing them.

      You know who else is pathetic? People who spend their entire lives trying their hardest to troll people online. Seriously, what is your the point of your existence? To me, you seem like a waste of space on this earth. You have no life. You probably live in your moms basement and you make it a daily routine to jack off you small dick every day. People like you don’t deserve to live. Do you really have so much spare time in your life that you go to a Nintendo dedicated website just to try (and fail I might add) making people angry? What’s the point? What kind of life is that? Is it your goal to be hated? If it is, congrats! You win! Absolutely everyone you have ever met hates you. Now, go celebrate by living out the rest of your life alone. With no friends, no family, nothing. 

      • The_fuzz_buzz

        Dude, watch it. Yeah, sure, I’ll stand by the Wii U as much as the next guy, but, I’m not going to tell this “BellsGhost”, or “Donaald” that he is a waist of space, or doesn’t deserve to live, heck no! Everybody is here for a reason, not by mistake, the one true God of the Bible says so. He loves everyone of us, cares for us, and not a single one of us would be here if not for Him, nor without a purpose.

        So in closing, think before you blab your insulting, hateful, rude, crude, demeaning mind. And BellsGhost, if you see this, don’t listen to this misguided fool. 

        • Ahiam94

          I don’t care about protecting the Wii U. What I want, is for BellsGhost to see how utterly pointless his life is, because it is. I, too, believe that God loves all of his children, but I also think that if there was a few that he regretted making, it’d be people like BellsGhost and Donaald.

          • The_fuzz_buzz

            But here’s the thing that you didn’t pick up on: His life isn’t pointless, it’s very important,  and i can prove it with just three simple facts: (1). God made him. God wouldn’t have made him if God didn’t want him, or have a purpose for him. (2). God doesn’t regret making ANYTHING of His, and you proved that one by saying that you believe God loves ALL His children. (3). Jesus Christ DIED for him! You think Jesus spilled his blood for him? I absolutely with all my heart do! The Bible says that God even knows when a single little Sparrow drops from the sky. Do you think if God cared that much about a little bird, he wouldn’t about one of His greatest creations?

          • Ahiam94

            I know that there is no life out there that is made to be pointless. I know that every life has a meaning. But, I also believe that a person can push their meaning away. Do you think God made all of these murderers rapists and drug users on purpose? No, he didn’t. It’s possible to stray away from the meaning of your existence. I don’t understand why God himself would put someone on this earth in order to spend their life away trying to piss off people who like Nintendo.

          • The_fuzz_buzz

            That is not his purpose, he chose to do this, but just because he’s getting on your nerves, doesn’t mean you need to hate him. It doesn’t mean his life is a waste. Is doesn’t mean your little world in gaming is over. And sure, people can run from God, I know I have before, but here’s that catch; instead of hating on them, have compassion, mercy, love, kindness, self-control, and don’t freak out because he insulted a thing you like. Remember, it IS just a thing, all these will pass away anyway, don’t obsess over it. And don’t get in a fight or an uproar over it. Seek God my friend, seek Him.

      This a Wii U related site, you do know that right? its in the title!

      If you’re looking for ps4, PC, or 720 news, this is not the place to find it. I’m surprised you haven’t figured that one out, with the website called “wiiudaily” and all

    • sexigarro collective

      Hey “Bellsghost” ..are you tired to use the name “donaald”?

  • DK_Hadouken

     She’s actually shown skepticism in the past. So, no, you”re wrong.

  • mac

    WTF good morning, since I already know! hahahahahhaaaaa

  • DK_Hadouken

    So you’re comparing two different games from two different developers. One partly made a bad game and the other ported over the higher end version successfully. How is that the same?

    We’re not drones. You’re the one droning on about other consoles on a site dedicated to one, the Wii U on Wii U Daily.

    It’s not our fault your little freakish child-like hands can not hold the Gamepad properly. Even my three year old daughter has no problem holding the freakin’ thing.

    Go eat your own vomit you little bitch dog. I’m done.

    Oh, and if you reply you’ll look foolish because I’ll not waste my time with the likes of you. I’d rather have a more challenging conversation with Donaald.

    This is going to be my first serious download from E-Shop. BTW those indie games are a blast. Trine 2 is gorgeous and The Cave is ingenious… Hopefully there are more games like these to back up the great online experience Nintendo are creating. May be a little late compared to the competition but hey, first doesn’t always mean best and the E-Shop IMO is a much, much smoother experience than either XBLA or PSN.
    Now back to Need for Speed MW. I hope those PC textures, improved draw distance and better framerates are not just hyped up marketing… I’ve got high expectations on this one!

    • Andres Trujillo

      Don’t forget Runner 2. I’m so addicted to that right now

    • david daniel wharton camacho

      no its not dude and i know i hope i can buy the disc if not ill go to the e-shop, i dont want to start using the wiiu’s 32 gb memory… i think nintendo should have let us implement an external hard drive by usb conection to the wii u, that way we could buy, and buy, and buy, and buy, and buy.
      though a good thing we could do would be buy lots of 4 gb sd cards, install 1 game in each one and stock them as the games “cd box” maybe even a picture of the game so you know… that is what i will do if it works :)

      • Elem187

        I’m glad Nintendo didn’t add a slow, clunky mechanical harddrive…. You do realize 1/5th of the cost of the XBox 360  and PS3 on launch day was the harddrive, right?

        I have my own external drives I can use, no need for Nintendo to charge me for it.

        Some people just want companies to hold their hand every step of the way.

      • sdmac200600

        you can you an external hard drive, i have an 80 gig ssd hooked up to the back of mines

      • Rinslowe

        You can totally use an external hard drive…. :-)

    • Quicksilver88

      Agree as I love both those games and off screen play is so nice….not sure about eShop benig much smoother, but I did like PSN better before their recent redo which really made it slugish and harder to browse the content. I still think XBL might be the best service IMO but they were first and they have made a ton off of gold subscribers so that makes sense. I do think the future is bright eShop and digital content as I just saw a list of a bunch of stuff coming this year and Nintendo has some Indy friendly initiatives that are yet to be launched, plus when we get VC for Wii-U that will be great and lets prey to god they have the Wii-U stuff off-screen because there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to play those old classics on the small screen. I think Wii-U tragectory will be just like 3DS in that one day next year we will look up and be OMG there is so much great content on this system I don’t have time to play it all. That mixed in with the fact that it will have a significant price advantage of nextbox/ps4 should ensure a good run for it!

    But,but, but I thought that graphics did not matter?

    Of course the Wii U would look better than almost ten year old systems!  The Wii U has Direct X 11 effects which include the great addition of tessellation, even though the 360 has a little of it.

    • Nintedward

      360 has no DX 11 effects only DX9.  We’re still not sure whether Wiiu is DX10.1 as originaly rumoured or DX11 equivalent as leaked by Ubisoft during E3 2012. 

      DX10.1 can actually achieve almost everything DX11 can. Only DX11 is much easier to use than the older DX10.1 . It’s all equivalent though so it’s apples and oranges.

      Wiiu has a better shader model and more Cache memory , Edram , RAM than old consoles , which means graphically speaking is way superior. But the CPU is the thing that will hold Wiiu back a bit from being able to achieve things that the 720 and PS4 will….

      If the PS3 is 1  and the PS4 is 10.  The Wiiu is about 3.5  on that scale.  But it’s the Gamepad what makes it very cool.

      • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

         The 360 has “some” tessellation which is a prime feature of Direct X 11.

          Will the PS4 use Direct X, Open GL, or some other tech?  Not sure if Sony would pony up the money to Microsoft for licensing in order to use Direct X.

          If the PS4 uses Open GL, then i can see more cross platform ports between the Wii U and PS4.

          • http://people.ign.com/returnofthetruth2 ReturnoftheTruth2

             I don’t see that at all because there is no money in the Wii U.  I think I will check international sites to get an idea if the Wii U is closed to being discontinued.

          • Nothing5555

             I highly doubt the Wii U will be discontinued anytime soon.  Nintendo has cash in the bank so I’m sure they will keep the platform going.  Imagine if they gave up too early on the 3DS?  Also Sony hasn’t given up on the Vita even through its sales are not that great.

            I have a feeling the PS4/Xbox720(?) will go through a similar cycle (though they will probably sell more units in a similar time frame).  These new boxes are probably going to be $450+ which is a lot of money just to play games.

        the wii u is using an openGL equivalent of DX11. nintendo would have had to pay microsoft to use DX11 in their console since DX series is microsoft owned

      • tomtank91

        the cpu’s on all the console will be clocked lower than on current consoles because the GPGPU will do the work aswell as the cpu.

    • Andres Trujillo

      I think its more along the lines of, “”the graphics don’t make the game”, but its nice when a game looks good too. I don’t get why people who hate on Nintendo think that every Nintendo fan does not like games with great graphics. I for one like when games are fun and bring solid gameplay, but I love when games bring the whole package of gameplay and graphics.

      • Nothing5555

         Nintendo is currently needed in this industry to push the way we play games since they are currently integrating “gimmicky” controls to their systems.  Otherwise we will be playing games using the same control system the same way just with prettier graphics.  Basically without new ways to play it will just be playing Uncharted the same way for 10 years with the only difference is now you can see the dirt building under Drake’s fingernails.

        Note: I hate when people argue Nintendo is gimmicky.  Its like the old argument when people use to say video games were gimmicks so just play outside instead.

    • MetroidZero

      You’re right… graphics do not matter. Superior gameplay has always been Nintendo’s focus. This has been implemented through well-developed, in-sync, motion controls, which many will agree sets Nintendo apart from Sony and Microsoft.

      With the Wii U, you get Nintendo’s trademark, superior gameplay AND superior graphics. Superior gameplay is a must; however, superior graphics is a nice BONUS, and we are loving it even more.

      • BellsGhost

        Bs. Wii U is superior nothing. Get your mouth off of Nintendos dick. Maybe if you like games with static characters and no stories. Nintendo have been making the same games since the 80s.

    This game will suck for one reason, the wii u gamepad and the normal controller, both have normal buttons… don’t know how to describe it, but the buttons at the back, so when you try to accelerate, you will always be going top speed, which many people hate. Tbh i was never going to consider buying it to begin with since i hate racing games, but i just wanted to point that huge flaw out that i just mentioned…

    • Gregory Edcius

      in the past all the racing games were like that and some would use the right stick to give gas and brake so it’s not necessarily a problem plus i hope they’ll support racing wheels so i can connect my playseat with my g25 would be really sweet

    • Andres Trujillo

      I love racing games, and I’m buying this bad boy. Honestly they could just make the right analog stick the accelerator (like gran turismo) and solve that problem. Even with analog control though, I will still jam the accelerator all the way down. 

      This is more along the lines of an arcade racer anyways than a racing simulator, so I don’t get why that will make this game suck

To be honest there has been a few times in the past i doubted my decision to buy a wiiU. But that passes why because regardless what happens i am having fun and am looking forward to games coming out. I could buy NFS on pc or xbox360 for halve the price but won’t why because it is a different experience on them. Just like i wouldn’t buy cod on wiiU no matter how good it is. Pc and xbox have enormous networks. The point of all of this is c’mon guys lets get past system specs and the old wii arguments and back to chatting about games and the wiiU.

    “These are pretty solid proof that the Wii U has what it takes to compete in next generation.”

    Hahaha, not it isn’t. We can compare the specs on the Wii U and PS4 pretty well now. The PS4’s massive RAM alone is more than enough to blow the Wii U out of the water, and it also has a much, much stronger CPU to boot.

    There is simply no competition. The Wii U is too weak to be next-gen, and its gimmicky tablet controller does not change that.

    • Jay

      How much of the PS4 ram is dedicated to the games?  It’s not all 8, that’s for sure.  The Wii U doesn’t need a much, much stronger CPU, because it has a GPGPU which is designed to do CPU tasks by its self, and do them better.  You can read about it’s edram and how it threads and streams the data very efficiently, and ultimately, it can utilize each and every graphics engine that the PS4 will be using for it’s games, unlike the Wii not being able to run PS3 game engines.  Yes, ultimately the PS4 is more powerful, but the gap is way, way smaller than the gap between PS3 and Wii.  Wii U will get multi platform releases, and will look almost identical to PS4 versions.  Even Watch Dogs on Wii U is completely separate from the PS3/360 versions.  They have it running on Wii U but haven’t even began the PS3/360 versions yet.

      • BellsGhost

        The hell? They have Watch Dogs running on Wii U? Stfu Nintendrone, they don’t. Also, do you really think if the GPGPU is better, then Sony would have used it too? I’ve read the opposite, that the GPGPU sucks. Lol. Poor Nintendrones. Wii U wont get crap once the PS4/Nextbox releases.

      • DemonRoach

        ps4 will have the same GPGPU technology moron, since it’s also using a radeon GPU, just a few generations ahead of the Wii U’s.  

    • Orange Lada

      No, you can’t compare at all.  PS4 remains vapour based on paper stats.   More to the point, comparing Mhz or memory speed has no value in and of itself.  Have to look at the whole system.  

      Sincer you’re got all the specs though, perhaps you can fill a hole in for me.  Does the PS4 do out of order processing?  

      • DemonRoach

        ps4 is a massive upgrade over the Wii U.  There is no comparison.

  • Weraru

    Wow, what a surprise…

  • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

    ye right…playing racing game on a controller that has a touchpad and you use nitro to tap…I rather die then play on the wiiU.racing game should be played with a racing wheel or a tradiontall controller

    and ofcourse the wiiU is superior,its next gen,but when ps4 and 720 comes out the wiiU will feel like last gen.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1136211921 Akia Rahming

      The game will not be played ON the touchscreen. The Gamepad has to analog sticks and two triggers, making it work quite fine for this game. It also supports:

      The Pro Controller
      Classic Controller
      Wii Wheel
      Wiimote + Nunchuck combo.

      All are great setups for a game like this. Also, the Wii U’s specs are in a good distance compared to the PS4 and 720. The difference will be medium at best.

    • Jay

      Not likely.  Wii U/PS4/720 will all be utilizing the same graphics engines as each other, in their games.  Wii U may be the weakest of the 3, but it will be the cheapest, has the most innovation, and will have some of the best exclusive games around.  That Killzone demo for PS4 could be done on Wii U.  It may not have as much ram as the PS4 (and just how much of that ram is dedicated for games, and won’t be tied up with multi tasking and downloading while you play?) but it’s GPGPU is incredibly capable, if utilized in the way it’s meant to be.  It’s not meant to be used like the CPU/GPU setup in PS3/360 games, which is why lazy ports don’t do well on the Wii U, because they are trying to run the Wii U like its a 360. Cry Engine 3/Unreal Engine 4/FOX Engine/Luminous Engine/Frostbite 2/Unity Engine 4 and all other comparable game engines are able to run on Wii U, which means the differences between PS4/Wii U versions of the same games, will be very small, much much smaller than any comparison between PS3 and Wii games.

      Oh ya, and go look at a picture of a Wii U gamepad. It’s more than just a screen. It has every single button/trigger/analog stick that you will find on a 360 or PS3 controller.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CEL4IN3MGGVMELFXSPPTDZ4EGQ Scott

    Who would have thought March would be turning into such a killer month for Nintendo in general and the Wii U in particular?  MH3U, NFS Most Wanted, and Lego City on the Wii U (I’m a sucker for the new Spiderman game too at $40).  Castevania, MH3U and Luigi’s Mansion 2 on the 3DS.  Happy gamer here…

  • http://www.facebook.com/Realityglitch Christopher Coonan

    To all trolls (and people responding to them) you ALL sound like a bunch of idiots. Seriously. The game on the Wii U has better graphics, but that doesn’t fucking matter. We are getting the better version in terms of everything else (gameplay, controls, extra features, miiverse, etc.). Now sit down, shut up (especially you, trolls, who obviously have your head stuck up your ass because you just think Nintendo is exclusively for family gamers), and play the fucking games. Nintendo is better because they aren’t trying to go all out to compete with Sony or Microsoft; they are, and always will be, in a league all their own, while you guys are stuck with mediocrity like Gears of War and Uncharted. I have a 360, but I am a PC and Nintendo gamer first and foremost. You know what? I don’t care about the fucking graphics. If a game looks good, it’s nice. But gameplay is where it counts.

    • BellsGhost

      This game wont look better. It’s called a marketing ploy. Also, Uncharted is mediocre? No it isn’t. Zelda is. Same rehased plot since the 80s, mianly same chcaracters, and those characters are stic. Stfu Nintendrone. Nintendo used to be in a league of their own, now, they’re the last of the 3. Wii U sucks, as did Wii. Last awesome Nintendo home console was GC.

      • Jay

        Actually, Uncharted is Mediocre.  There are more changes from Windwaker to Twilight Princess to Skyward Sword, than there are in Uncharted 1-3, and I played all 6 of those mentioned games.  Uncharted is done well when it comes to characters and voice acting and story, but gameplay is the same.  Climb, climb, climb, shoot, shoot more, climb again, shoot things from a moving vehicle, plot twist, climb climb climb, shocking reveal about monsters not being monsters, end.  Screen shots, videos, and the developer saying they are using PC textures, which they didn’t use on PS3/360 versions, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt the game has better graphics, and it’s STILL not taking anywhere near full potential of the Wii U.  Whether or not you think it sucks is irrelevant.  You don’t own a Wii U, and the Wii outsold both the PS3 and 360.  At one point, it had sold more than both combined even.

    All kicks of from march when my bank balance will be showing negative here come the games!Same day as monster hunter comes out and my life will revolve around two things working and playing my games!

  • Quicksilver88

    Why are there so many haters here in the comments at Wiiudaily? I mean BellsGhost what did Nintendo kill your puppy when you were a kid or what? I just don’t get it becaues I don’t go trolling at sites for things I don’t like and just spew absolute crap….I say go screw yourself. This is a site for Wii-U enthuiseists to come and see whats new and coming and discuss a new and exciting platfrom.

    Ok now my relevant comments. I think this game looks great. I am pretty sure that the triggers on the Wii-U controler are analog so WTF are you talking about, if not then I am sure you can custimize the controls to use right stick for excelleration. All racing games are vastly better on all systems with a HQ wheel. Those wheels can get really pricey, but I have a nice Logitech USB from PS2 days that I use with my PS3 so that is my favorite system/way to play racing games. I thought ExciteTruck and MarioKart on Wii were some of the most fun racing games every and had huge laughs with the kids in the family playing them.

    To the grafx whores and haters on here I think both the comments of the developer and the fact they used the PC textures should be enough for you to STFU. This game looked and played great on PS3 and will look even better and play just as well on Wii-U. Not only that idiots but the gamepad additional features, miiverse, and off screen play will make it the best version period. Also you grafx whores are mostly uneducated spec whores as well that don’t know shit about system design or engineering. The Wii-U is 6+ years newer than the last system. Processor and GPU design are not just about clock speed anylonger, they are about pipelines, caches, cores, and threads. In this way the Wii-U is nicely designed, not over the top like the proposed PS4 spec, but decent none the less. It is a 3 core/6 thread processor and a nice GPU with fast ram. It is and has to be way better than PS3/X360 duh! Also Microsoft is investing heavily in motion control and media services so they have already said 25% of their system resources will go to the new Kinnect features. It is supposed to be 4core/8 thread but 1/4 of that to the kinnect controller will mean probably better but not leaps and bounds better performance than Wii-U. They have also said they are not using DDR5 so their RAM speed will likely be similiar to Wii-U. Only Sony are claiming to have crazy specs, and if they do then I say good as I will buy it for sure and may skip xbox this generation because I think their first party stuff is weak compared to Nintendo and Sony.

    Last point and that is this is a new game and criterion likely not had Dev kits that long so I think it is a really good sign that it was moved over with improvements in such a short time. Remember when PS3 came out it took a year or more to get ports of x360 stuff so it took a long time to get ports 3rd party unitl the games that were co-deved started coming out in 2008/09. Sony admitted this really hurt them in the early days of PS3 and seems to have made a correction by going with x86/AMD for this new gen which will make it very easy to dev for. Many devs have come forward and said Wii-U is easy to dev for and easy to get engines of ports up and running quickly. This matters a lot in the number and quality of ports or 3rd party games Wii-U will eventually see. The system is no Wii by a long shot.

    Ok….I am going back to enjoying my off screen play of Trine2 and the Cave as my wife watches HGTV so you haters on here go on hating and playing with yourselves as I think the Wii-U will do just fine without you ownership!

  • fireheartis1

    It’s funny how you and Donaald talk so much crap, but yet you can’t back it up.  You wont reply to anyone about why you think the Wii U is crap, and all you do is come on here and writ stupid little comments.  Trolls like you should be flagged everytime you get on a sight.  Too bad you are wrong about the Wii U and hopefully somebody that helps run the Wii U Daily sight will kick both you and Donaald off soon.  We’re sick of both of you crap and can’t stand you.  By the way Watch Dogs on Wii U will be using next gen technology so I don’t think it’s going to suck moron.

    • Nothing5555

       Watch Dog on the Wii U will suck when compared to PS4/Nextbox version
      only if Ubisoft does not take advantage of overall Wii U design.

      -It will suck if Ubisoft only ports the game to the Wii U and add game tablet functionality as an afterthought.  This will be due to the expectation the PS4/Nextbox of having better graphic and processing power.  Basally the same game on a weaker platform.

      -It will blow the PS4/Nextbox ports out of the water if Ubisoft fully integrates the Wii U tablet into WD somehow while making the most of its hardware capabilities.

      -Will be on par with PS4/Next box if Ubisoft first develops on the Wii U and simply ports it to the other systems.

  • RattleGore

    So this is a pc port turn down to medium settings and the 360 would be minimum setting i think… Not bad

  • tomtank91

    well it’s not suprising the Wii U’s graphics are better, it’s just good that you can clearly see it.

  • tomtank91

    why’s that? is it because graphics will be better on the other systems and nothing do with how you play a game.

    • DemonRoach

      Graphics are everything on home consoles.

      • Silent

        I’ll fix that: ”Graphics are everything on home consoles, since i live on a cave”

        Now it makes perfect sense. 

      • Jeremy Thompson

        graphics are part of it or there wouldnt be all the consoles thats been made, but i get what your saying and what others are saying but i havent personally seen great gameplay on the games i like or stand out graphics. But i believe hardware is most of it because it effects not only the game itself but the developers and the players by limitation. Sadly to say ps4 has wii u beat where it counts on hardware but wii u has the gamepad and it dont knock out the wii u or will it on its on, what will if anything at first will be developers and they do have good reasons sometimes but will when wii u’s limitations hinder game developers to the point where they have to let go of it to focus on makeing better games.

      • http://www.facebook.com/aleksander.esentals Aleksander Esentals

  • tomtank91

    and also that a developer is using the features and potential of what the system can do.

  • Zombie_Andrew

    Thanks for the shout-out there :) I’m definitely buying this game! Not only does it dose the DX11 equivalent features but there’s an article that Alex Ward said it took them 10 minutes to make the transition, and just didn’t bother altering anything else. Apparently before they were struggling to get the 360 port running until they got some tech support from Nintendo, then they literally clicked a few settings and they found an option to enable PC effects. So imagine if another dev did this, but took their time to tinker further!

  • Jeremy Thompson

    awesome good to hear its finally happening and not soon enough wii u needs as big of a jump as it can ahead of next gen systems. like someone said ahead of me im not a raceing fan but this makes me want to purchase this game to motivate developers and hopefully everyone follows suit. throwing in my 2 cents which i know this game will sell due to so many fans and expectation of nintendo not screwing it up but would lock down this genre, it has major possibilitys and nintendo should buy all rights to the silent hill franchise, xbox or soney tried a little but didnt market it right. if the game is made right and push the specs and fully utilize the gamepad i know games will sell but could possibly sell systems if marketed right and i’ll keep wishing they will and id like to hear everyones take on it just make it intelligent response if possible ty
