Who expects a Wii U version of a game to have everything a PS4-targeted game would have? I certainly do not, which makes me happy that Wii U is getting it at all, even if it is at 720p. It's even coming out at the same time.

I don't why so many gamers only care about graphics, graphics, graphics. Just look at the Xbox One versus PS4 battle; you rarely see people discussing which system has the best controller, the best online service or the best games. All you see is "PS4 has more 1080p games!" and crown it the winner of this generation simply based on that. If those fanboys only knew that a PC can blow the PS4 out of the water when it comes to graphics...

The console wars in the 90s were actually fun. Sonic VS Mario. CDs VS cartridges. Phantasy Star VS Final Fantasy. These days, it's all about which games have the most pixels.

@BinaryFragger

Most people know a PC can do better than a PS4 but tend not to care since most group consoles and PC's as seperate things.

Its still about the games. Next week is Child of Light and Spider-man time.

WAT!

The reason this is such a hot topic is because people are discussing the same game, on different consoles. People are not saying COD is better than Battlefield because it has more pixels, they're saying on version of COD is better than another console's version of COD. It's not about saying graphics are more important than everything else, but generally, everything else is the same. If the PS4 is identical to the Wii U version in all ways but then also has a higher res, then surely it makes sense to go for that?

I don't subscribe to the graphics are all that matters argument, but if you can have something look better with no sacrifices, then it's a no brainer. And 1080p is quite a step up from 720p. Especially if you're a PAL gamer, as the jump from 720 to 1080 is practically twice the increase that SD to 720 was.

Who cares??

I've been a gamer my whole life. I've owned every Nintendo console from the SNES to the Wii U, though I spend most of my gaming time with my PS3. I enjoy games from a variety of genres and I love arcade-style racing games. My all-time favourite non-Nintendo game is DmC. Yes, really.

That's because everything's new and exciting, and there aren't a lot of games to talk about. We won't be having these conversations in 2 years.

This is pretty much standard for most Wii U games, right? What's the big deal?

Just to clarify about CoD, the XBox360 version, indeed, runs at a lower overall resolution than the Wii U version, as an earlier poster correctly stated:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-call-of-duty...

1024x600 on XBox360, 880x720 on Wii U.

As for the OP stuff, it's really sad that they're just tossing ports, graphically speaking, onto the Wii U using the PPC architecture of the last gen systems. It's cheaper, I get the reasons, but it's really sad knowing that the Wii U can, and probably does, have the ability to run Child of Light at 1080p@60 like its current gen brethren.

I find this to probably be a slightly more underhanded marketing move to create an "outline" of differences between last gen and current gen systems so that people will be more tempted to buy the current gen versions.

Methinks this is less to do with the overall power of the U and more the fact that it has to process the second 480p display for the gamepad.

Think of it this way, 720p (main screen) + 480p (gamepad) = 1200p! Eat that Sony and MS! ;-)

Does this really matter? For that matter, does it really ever matter? The difference between the two is superficial at best.

The difference is in the 90's the systems were actually different. Multiplatform games were the rarity, and exclusives were common. The TG16, Genesis, and SNES, and then the PS1, N64, and the Saturn were all different game systems that looked, played, and sounded differently. The PS4 and Xbox One are so identical the console wars have been reduced to counting pixels.

Disappointed the Wii U got a cheap port considering how low budget this game is. I also don't understand why xbox360 and ps3 got 720p ports either, this game is not that demanding at all according to the pc requirements. Meh, waiting on reviews for this one anyway, still think it looks like it could be too easy and boring, i hope i'm wrong though as the visuals are nice.

I wouldn't be concerned. It's kind of like how CoD Ghosts was sub-HD on Wii U. They just ported from Xbox 360, and left it at that.

On one hand, the Wii remote and GamePad would be nice, but the higher resolution would be nice, too...

False, I don't know the actual numbers but COD Ghost is way superior on the Wii U compared to the 7th gen machines. (Apart from not having any DLC)

Replying to this topic, could not give 2 Fs. I have a 1080p 32" TV and I sit at least 5 feet away, and I can never see the difference between 720p and 1080p. Although it does suck that Ubi is treating the Wii U differently, but hey at least we are still able to enjoy the game! Unless you have a 42" or bigger I would say don't sweat it.

Yeah 720 or 1080 is not that big a difference anyway you look at it. Lets just be grateful it's coming out on time. I'd hate for them to say it was delayed because they wanted to include 1080p. Not worth it!

But isn't silly to be arguing about pixels? I don't have a problem with the conversations themselves. What I find crazy is how these discussions about pixels turn into crazy flamefests with thousands of comments of people insulting each other (I'm talking about other sites, not NL). IGN is constantly posting click-bait stories about this that generate 6000+ comments.
And we will certainly be having these conversations in 2 years. People are still arguing about Xbox 360 vs PS3.
