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).

Wii U has a bit more clarity, but it's still almost entirely based on 7th gen versions. Read what @ZyroX72 posted. Wii U has slight advantages, but it's still the 7th gen version. The reason why, is PowerPC. Why build a game around Wii U's specs, when you can just port the Xbox 360 version? It's not that big of a deal, IMO, but people are still continuing to base their opinions on what is essentially 3rd party companies, saving money, by just throwing the Xbox 360 version on there.

It's always a bit disappointing when a developer does not use the full potential of the console hardware. Yes, the Wii U runs Rayman Legends at 1080p, this game use the very same UbiArt framework, so it is safe to assume it could do 1080p here as well. But I kid you not, I'm not going to spend much time thinking about these petty things. 720p vs. 1080p is barely noticeable for me.

Wii U will upscale it, anyway. Even if it's not 1080p, upscaled 720p is still better than just 720p.

I do agree that it is based on the 7th gen, there is hardly any argument about that. But to put them on the same boat is stretching it. I play the game on PS3 and Wii U, the PS3 version is just.....ghastly. Thank god I did not own the copy.

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

I like that way of thinking lol

Fanboy logic you gotta love it. ;)

I see it as making fun of all the numbers people like to throw out for which console is better

I'm more so talking about how developers are treating Wii U. I've seen Black Ops II on Xbox 360 and PS3, and I definitely think Wii U has the upper hand, with the GamePad, Wii remote, 5.1 PCM, and visual clarity, but those are still assets from Xbox 360.

I didn't even say anything bad about Wii U, in my original post :P I was just saying that Wii U is getting thrown in with Xbox 360 and PS3, which it is.
They save money by doing direct ports, and make more money from those ports, too.

Well, eventually there is no way to care. People can and probably only will have a Wii U, and they'll buy the game on that.

People still bought the PS2 versions of games, even though GCN and Xbox were there. I will always base my opinion of graphics on how PS2 went, for the rest of eternity.

As an admitted graphics nerd I have to say 720p vs 1080p is not noticeable to me, and I game on a 52" 1080p tv. SD can be a big problem though as most Wii games will attest to, though SSBB and SMG 1 + 2 are tolerable. But I doubt it will matter for most w/ this game and it's simplistic water colored 2D background.

As many others have said, Wii U is getting a 3rd party game same day as every other console, thats a major victory right there. 720p vs 1080p isn't really worth throwing Ubi under the bus over while we wait months for W_D. And besides, if Nintendo wanted it's console to get games running on par w/ PS4/X1 then it should have built it's console w/ similar specs, it's not all on Ubi. Nintnedo built the console they wanted to build having some idea what Sony and Microsft would have, they had to know how 3rd party support would work. Nobody should be surprised this is how 3rd party support works.

I dislike it when a game is coming to 360/PS3/One/PS4/PC but not Wii U, makes no sense to me

lmao, I love these resolution arguments (remind me of back when we would argue over Mode 7 vs Blast Processing), I grew up playing the NES and the Atari 2600, chuckleheads today with their "oh my gosh it's only 720 pixels instead of 1,080 pixels I'm getting ripped off the other version is better because it has the more pixels" jive need to check their privilege and be grateful it's not a game with a bunch of blocky stick figures, because that's basically what passed for a video game for years, and we enjoyed them too. :P

I recently purchased a new 51" plasma TV. As I was comparing features and picture quality, it had the best combination of things I wanted with the exception that it was only 720p instead of 1080p. However, it was next to a 1080p - while I could see the difference if I stared and squinted, it was a completely negligible difference.

As long as it's still 60fps I don't really care overly much.

Honestly, from where I'm sitting when I'm watching my TV, the difference between 720p and 1080p isn't much more noticeable than 1080p and 1080p with 2x msaa. It's there, sure. But 30 fps is waaaaaay more annoying. That is, if the game I'm playing is one where the TV's motion interpolation works badly.

If it's doing 60fps I don't really care that much because I'm probably going to be playing a fair bit on the GamePad anyways.

Would have thought it'd be 1080p after Rayman Legends from Ubi. I love pixel for pixel crisp images (I sit quite close to everything lol)

I don't think I've seen anyone compare the power of a PS3 vs a 360 since like 2006. Of course people still argue about PS3 vs 360, but they're all arguing about exclusives, online infrastructure, and controllers.

I'm pretty sure people are still arguing about their power....their focus just shifted from 7th to 8th gen....LOL

It's a pity that people actually waste mental energy worrying about this kind of stuff. Unless you're sitting very close to the TV you probably won't even notice the difference.

This. Here's an example. If you have a 50" 1080p hdtv, to even get the benefits of 1080p you'd have to be sitting closer than 10 feet(9.7" to be exact) I'm closer to 11 feet. so for me, 1080p doesn't even matter. I like to get closer for certain genre's, but not closer than 10 feet on a 50" :P

720p does me just fine, although i'm guessing 720p content being upscaled to 1080p on a 1080p HDTV wouldn't look quite as good compared to feeding 720p to a 720p display. I'm assuming this is where a 1080p game on a 1080p display instantly has an advantage even if you're sitting a bit farther away and out of the 1080p range/viewing distance.
