Wii U Graphics Comparison: PS4 and Xbox One Have Less 1080p 60fps HD Titles Than Nintendo

One look into the future releases of next-gen consoles reveals that the Wii U has more true HD (1080p 60fps) games coming out than its competitors, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Cinemablend reports that the Wii U has Super Smash Bros. U, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD, Monster Hunter 3, and Rayman Legends all coming out in 1920 x 1080p and 60 frames per second.

In comparison, the PS4 has Killzone: Shadow Fall, Flower, Resogun, and DriveClub, which may not reach 60fps.

Xbox One will have Forza 5, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Killer Instinct, but it will be in 1280 x 720.

What is worse for the Xbox One is that the console will be unable to show games in HD as it claimed.

The new console could only produce 900p graphics compared to the PS4's and Wii U's 1080p, according to Extremetech, an anonymous insider on NeoGAF, who correctly revealed Microsoft info in the past.

"Xbox One fully supports native 1080p output at 60 fps. It is up to individual developers to determine what resolution best fits their design goals. At launch, Xbox One will present all titles at 1080p- whether natively or upscaled," said a Microsoft representative to Extremetech.

It has already been proved that Xbox One's big game, Ryse, is in 900p. The representative commented no further on the manner.

Interestingly enough, an Xbox One representative went on Reddit and confirmed the 900p claims, but stated the models used were for stress testing, so they were not an indication of the final product.

With that being said, how important are graphics when it comes to console play? Most view graphics as secondary to the actual games that being played, which may be true, but claiming superiority that is wrong is hard to ignore.

While the Wii U may leave much to be desired in other categories, they are definitely are on the right track graphically.
