Gabe N diss PS3 - praises Wii


Recommended Posts

Yeah, but that's a 2d game, and to me the proper way to use Wii's controls in a 2d game is by using the wiimote only, flip it 90° and use it as a normal pad.

A classic Half Life though would be cool. It'd actually be nice to see a whole range of classic old games make it to the Wii in a "Golden Games" collection of some kind

Didn't HL2 get ported to the Xbox fairly successfully? If that 64mb wonder could handle it then the Wii should be able to, even if nowhere near as beautifully as a PC or a 360/PS3. Though I still think if you're after deeply cinematic gaming like Valve provide, you're better off with the number crunchers rather than the physical fun of the Wii.

CPU IBM Broadway 729MHz

Internal Storage 512MB Flash Memory

GPU ATI Hollywood Supported Resolution up to 480p

Optical Disc Drive 8cm GameCube/12cm Wii

12cm Disc Capacity 4.7GB (single) / 8.5GB (dual)

lol :/

that doesnt say much

This does though:


* 88 MB main memory (24 MB "internal" 1T-SRAM integrated into graphics package, 64 MB "external" GDDR3 SDRAM)[46]

* 3 MB GPU texture memory

Its retarded low and you really notice that in the games..

I still love my wii though :)

The way Rayman was made, the idea was more "Make it for the PS2, it'll fit on the Wii ok". That's how next gen our processes were :) Hell even Nintendo said it. it's all about the gaming experience, not the high res hardware.

If you look at Zelda, it's a GCN game.
