Well im not surprised as Nintendo used AMD tech lol

Quote:
AMD OFFERED congratulations to Nintendo on what it calls the "revolutionary Wii video gaming console".
The chip maker reckons its "Hollywood" graphics processor helped Nintendo deliver the fun bit of kit to thumb-twiddling yanks.

Some bloke called Dave Orton, who is, apparently, AMD's executive vice president, Visual and Media Business reckons the launch of the Wii "is a great achievement for Nintendo and a win for gamers everywhere."
Rest here :

post #7 of 31
I am having very good results with my 1900XTX.......I see no problems with ATI GPUs.....


I have just recently started seeing commercials for the Wii....with the Japenese guys going around to random houses saying "Wii would like to play...."

All they are showcasing is the Sports thing where you have to wave your hands around with the controller.......so not my thing. In addition, those titles do not showcase any graphical ability of the console as those games are the most basic graphics. I understand that they want to grab the kid and older person market....but they shouldn't completely ignore the other markets. Old people and 8 year olds are not going to buy enough consoles to take them out of #3.....

I also just saw a commercial for Red Steel......since I like to sit down and play video games to unwind from a long, hard day at work the last thing I want to do is swing my arms and hop around.

While the motion sensitive thing is cool, they need to be careful not to make the Wii a one-trick pony.....

Considering all the Wii's in this area are sold out, I wouldn't be too concerned there Thumper. I think they're doing just fine.

My roomate got one, and although the graphics are not the greatest, I still want one for myself, even though I can play his. Red Steel is pretty cool and Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, FRICKIN AWESOME... The Wii Sports is also very cool. We play baseball and tennis all the time.

Why does it suck? No one even knows the specificications of it. Just because its not high end doesnt mean it sucks. My graphics card isnt high end but it doesnt suck. I can play source games at 1280x1024 maxed and alot of other games either at 1280x1024, or at 1024x768, all from a $120 investment ($30 mail in rebate)
