With games on the Wii looking like Jetmoto for the PSOne, most consumers were hoping that in time, Wii games would start to look a little better. Heck, maybe after a year or two, games could have graphics like Gears of War, right? Wrong!
Epic has stated that the Unreal 3 engine will never be making it to the Nintendo Wii. Why? Epic says the engine isn’t designed for Nintendo’s hardware.
So while I call the waaahmbulance for the Wii fanboys crying over their shoddy graphics, I suggest picking up an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 if you want to see some crazy details and extreme lighting on a console game. Because, you know, Epic is down with those consoles.
