Wii U Tech Demos vs. PS3 & Xbox 360 Tech Demos

Wii U:

Playstation 3:

Xbox 360:

This Xbox 360 tech demo show above is actually brand new from a few months back for a new engine called "Mega Meshes" intended on extending the life of current gen consoles. I was unable to find a tech demo from 2005 for the Xbox 360. It looks nice but is not very smooth and kinda basic when compared to the other demos.

So when watching these tech demos, the only thing that stands out to me is that the Wii U so far looks like a big step up graphically from the other two systems. The realism and detail in the Wii U tech demos are really unmatched when compared to the PS3/360. A taste of things to come.

The mega meshes is supposed to take advantage of the tessellation unit in the Xbox 360, but it's not all that effective. Notice how lifeless that demo was? I spoke to someone who is very knowledgeable about game tech, and he claims that there won't be too many games that will use this technique because the Xbox 360 doesn't have much processing power for developers to harness in the future.

the zelda and bird tech demos are the lesser ones theres more that blow them away but embargoed by nintendo IGN have 1 its downtown japan and the graphics are mind blowing and you can look behind you on the wiiu tablet and see everything going on apparantly amassing

power 7 cpus are 3/4 steps above x360 cpu cores then ad edram 4850/4870 are 3/4 steps above x360 gpu nintendo is being very conservative we shall see more closer to release...

yes and u got micheal ancel Ubisoft saying its not next gen u should ask him if he understands IBM gave stated it uses same multi-core cpu tgats found in WATSON so a Power7 Cpu isnt next gen what ever some1 needs to have words with him i mean a custom Power7 optimised 4 console would be too powerful 4 BGAE2 as this is the game he is denying on WiiU and also wont commit to ps4/720 as he says its more to do with interface abit weird if u ask me as them early tech demos show WiiU to be many times more powerful than PS3 what a plum the guy who owns this site should email ancel and remind him we know the cpu is a beast IBM have confirmed this how ignorant.

Why didn't you use the longer bird demo?

Yes it's longer, but it's far better looking, and if you compare this one to the one that you showed, you can see that this has added effects, it was on the show floor an hour after reggie showed the shorter video. That clearly shows just how early and unfinished this demo is.
