hahahahaha animal crossing, good graphic ?
the wii, good graphics ?
man this is hilarious. the wii has that reputation to be ugly. this is outdated engine, even when it just came out, it was outdated, by a LOT. frankly, i dont see much difference between the gamecube and the wii horsepower.
for good graphics now, simply check Battlefield 3 gameplay video.

but anyway... when i play a nintendo game, im not hoping for high standard graphic display. im playing it for the fun factor, and gameplay innovation. this is what nintendo offered me for years, and its what i like.
the 3ds has a unique future ahead. the 3d slider is a grea gadget, but its future games are very very promising. pile that fact that it will be compatible to play with a Wii U, it adds to the innovation. im a fan of nintendo yeah.
if I wanna play for graphics, id either go for a ps3 or a great pc.

This isn't really at anyone in particular, just a thought I had...Its funny how with the Wii people would say how it looked like Gamecube and how little the graphics have changed. Now with 3DS graphic arguments, suddenly Wii graphics are leaps and bounds ahead of Gamecube. Its like "Well I guess the 3DS looks about on par with GC but its no where near as powerful as Wii. The 3DS's graphics are fail!" I thought the Wii and Gamecube had the same graphics?? Its like no matter what, some people's opinion is always "down with Nintendo!!

This is sort of off-topic, but notice how Metroid Prime Trilogy is one of the best-looking titles on Wii even though 2/3 of it debuted on the GameCube. Incredible art direction (also see Wind Waker) trumps 2x the graphical power, apparently.

The 3DS' shaders make games like MGS and Revelations, and to a lesser extent Ocarina, look like Wii games at the very least. I've seen some Kid Icarus shots that are impressive by any stretch of the imagination, so regardless of their power, 3DS graphics can indeed look awesome.

@bboy
I think Mandoble's point is that the Animal Crossing games aren't very reliant on visuals. The N64 could produce something similar to the 3DS screenshots, though not with all the effects and we'd have some jaggies (less if we're using the expansion pack
I guess). If they both had the same resolutions or screen sizes, it would be a more accurate comparison. The 3DS version basically has all the neat little effects working for it, but the core of the game looks like it could operate on N64. It wouldn't move as smoothly as the 3DS version, but the 3DS version in 3D would be closer. There's nothing particularly special about Animal Crossing 3DS' graphics that would make it impossible to work with.

(At least that's what I'm getting and speculating from Mandoble's post after trying set aside the hyperbole...)

I think its funny that we can even compare a handheld to a console graphically lol, but is the 3DS really that powerful? What level is the Vita at then? Like whats that comparable to?

In my entire life, I've never heard "the Wii and GameCube have the same graphics" until now. The difference is there, it's just nowhere near as big as the jump HD consoles made.

Edit: BTW, some early Wii games were ported over from the GameCube without changing the graphics. I'm guessing a lot of what you're saying comes from Twilight Princess and Super Paper Mario.

The Vita is definitely more powerful than 3DS. I believe its a couple notches below PS3. Its basically in about the same situation with PS3 as the PSP was in with PS2.

Then whats the point? Sorry if I sound biased but the Vita seems to be all the same experiences as the PS3, same games, same everything. I don't get it? I'd rather play Uncharted on a PS3 than on the Vita. And I don't see how a console can be even close to PS3 level, I owned a PS3 (sold it like 2 weeks ago) and it got pretty hot once in awhile and the Vita doesn't even have a fan in it as far as I know. :O

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely don't think Wii and Gamecube have the same graphics. The Wii is obviously ahead of it. A lot of Nintendo haters just say things like that and I find it funny how now the Wii suddenly has so much more power than Gamecube now that that is the convenient thing for them. Anything to bash Nintendo I suppose :)

There really has been a lot of Nintendo bashing lately in the media, just look at IGN. :P Jeez, they keep praising other companies but it seems like almost every article about Nintendo is negative.

Well Vita isn't out yet but that is exactly what I believe will be its biggest problem. Just like the PSP, why buy something on the handheld when you can get the overall stronger console experience. The Vita has one thing and one thing only that I find interesting and that is the rear touch pad. It looks like it could potentially be great but I feel like it just won't be used very often by developers.

The Wii is literally two GameCubes duct-taped together.
seriously, open up your wii; you'll be amazed at how they crammed 'em in there with so little duct tape!

@Treverend That is one of the arguments being leveled against the Vita, that at-home gamers would rather play on PS3 than Vita if they have similar games, but there a couple on the way that take advantage of the Vita's unique features (Little Deviants rear touchpad support comes to mind).

Also, apparently Sony are hardware geniuses, though the Vita is bigger than the PSP and battery life may be a concern.

Well, I'm sure Monster Hunter Tri and Mario Galaxy 2 (for examples) can not be done on Gamecube. Super Smash Bros. Brawl looks much more better than Melee- more detail on models and less jagged.

And of course the nintendo cheerleaders cannot stand the facts. Are you suggesting me to leave "your forum" BTW?

The Wii has the power to have better graphics than the GC at the cost of the extra memory that the Wii doesnt have, you can notice it quite well with Wii Metroid Prime, it has obviously better graphics than the GC versions, but for "some reason" every two steps you will have the game stopped and loading from disk. And with the 3DS, who knows, so far there are no games to really compare, but the first signals of weakness are already there with the low FPS problems detected with Resident evil. Anyway, defending the graphic quality of Animal Crossing for any platform is beyond any logic.

Well, I was never one of those people. Why can't we just say that the 3DS is somewhere between the GameCube and the Wii and leave it at that?

I had totally forgotten about batter life. Has Sony said anything about it yet do you know? Given what I know about Vita, the battery life might not be pretty.
