Alright i was looking at the video for resident evil revleation and for metal gear solid. Alright both of those games have Gamecube quality graphics and are running 3d which means the image is being rendered twice. So if you were to make a 3DS game not using 3d the extra power that would be used for the 3D could be used to get wii level graphics right.

WAT!

I know gaminguy, it's amazing. The graphics on the 3DS are very much indeed like those of the Wii. According to the 3DS review on wired.com the graphics of PilotWings Resort, Animal Crossing 3DS and Paper Mario 3DS, Kid Icarus: Uprising are even better than those of the Wii. You know I'm highly anticipating the final release date.

Here's the 3DS graphics equation...
Wii+iPad+((PS3+XBox 360)x0.60)=GamecubexGamecube=Wii and then some=3DS

I still don't think it looks much better than PSP games, but that's a good thing as the system isn't even out yet.
I imagine at best it'll look like Gamecube games or lazy Wii games (Like Animal Crossing) though it will "seem" better because the screen is smaller. Which isn't a bad thing at all, but I honestly don't think we'll get games that look even remotely like TP or Galaxy 2.

For RE5 I'd hardly compare the two, as for the Gamecube, I know the cube can look better than that. I'm actually surprised how bad that looks. lol But I guess it's a valid comparison.

Either way I guess wondering is pointless until we know all the internal hardware for the 3DS. At least it'll probably be the best looking handheld when it comes out regardless, unless Sony has something up it's sleeve.

Thank you for clearing up the record my friend. Those images you posted are indeed why so many developers have jumped on the 3DS band wagon with such enthusiasm. On the current DS Lite and even the DSi a game like Metal Gear Solid or Kid Icarus would have been impossible but with the technology of today things have changed.

All one has to do is look at the footage of Kid Icarus: Uprising and Metal Gear Solid 3DS to see that the proof is in the pudding.

Even Warren Spector who is a video game icon has stated that the graphics of the Nintendo 3DS are far superior to those of both the PSP and iPod Touch and we all know that the iPod Touch graphics are good (Zenonia anyone?), so if the graphics of the 3DS are better than both the PSP and iPod Touch there is no room for argument because we all know the 3DS is going to be more than a revolution. Developers who have commented on the 3DS have also said that it's graphics are superior to those of the Game Cube.

Kid Icarus looks like a high end PSP game, while others like Resident Evil Revelations and MGS Snake Eater 3D look Wii-like yet have superior shaders. The 3DS is a tricky one, it may not have the polygon power to match the PS3/360, but the shaders are freaking gorgeous. And to top it all off you're seeing it displayed on small high res screens which makes it look even more impressive.

Then again, graphics aren't everything, right? It's the gameplay that matters. Besides, I think that the 3DS screenshots and footage look a lot closer to Wii than GameCube! I think that a few even surpass the Wii entirely. I also think that, graphically, a 3DS Mario Galaxy game is possible!

Okay the shear process power of the 3DS is likely worse than the Wii. But almost exclusively because the 3DS has shader support, it has better graphics than Wii. The Wii only had TEV and the only people that used that thing was Factor 5, Rare, and Nintendo. So you should expect excellent graphics on 3DS.

Shader support is HUGE. It is.
