Some of these will get to the pc eventually,halo 3 and mass effect but it will take time.PGR3 & 4 and Forza 2 however will NEVER make it to pc ,i love them .
Good Point. I prefer simulation style racing games found on the PC just as I prefer the more tactic 1 shot 1 kill type games found on a PC like Rainbow Six/Graw (PC versions).

However, for someone like you, yes that would be a convincing argument as these types of games generally don't find their way on the pc and then it boils down to whether you prefer the PS3 arcade racers or the Xbox arcade racers.

Forza 2 is more of a inbetween game,more sim-like than most console racers.I like the PC sims aswell but atm i dont have a desk that works with a wheel and thats a must for any pc racing sim.The console racers works with both wheel and the standard pad.

Yeah but you did say that Mario Galaxy looked like a gamecube game did you not? I have seen Mario Galaxy myself and of course while it may not be the best looking game out there compared to some others I do not agree that it could be pulled off on the Gamecube.

I also stated that I exagerated my initial wording a bit...but went on to say the difference isn't stellar...looking at a Xbox game versus the Xbox360 is night and day...same with PS2 vs PS3...i stand by that you don't get the same "Wow" when you see a Wii game versus gamecube...yes there is a difference but its not a "next gen" difference imho.

Don't get me wrong I still enjoy the Wii had a ton of fun with a buddy doing co-triage on patients in New Blood. Gaming is more than just graphics anyways its about gameplay and the Wii certainly has the gameplay department down...the looks...well thats another matter

I read it a bit back and I will try and find the article but it was said that the best source of HD is actually broadcasts from networks. Just watch a FOX sports football game. Nothing at all to really compromise the picture quality other than how you are getting the stations. And I tend to agree.

Blu-Ray should look tons better than broadcast... When in reality it doesn't at all. Maybe its because I am not viewing Blu-Ray in TRU Full 1080peee. :P

Don't forget if you are viewing HD channels like Discovery most of their HD content does not originate from film...you are getting pure digital transfers from digital projectors.

Likewise sports events are live broadcasts with no transfer required.

A lot of Blue Ray movies are still dependant on their film transfer source...garbage in garbage out in many cases...if the film source was well preserved it will fantastic. Ghost Rider on Blue Ray for example looks great but some older titles whose source material has experience some degradation does not.

The reason you're not seeing as much of a jump between the GameCube-->Wii may be due to the fact that the Cube was the strongest console of last-gen.

But the Wii still has its own look which is a definite jump from last-gen. Overall, Mario and Metroid both look excellent. There are certain places on both Mario and Metroid that rival anything I've ever seen. Nights is also a good looking game. Most of the games I've played for Wii certainly look very comparable to a 360 or PS3 game, and some better due to the fact I haven't seen as bad a filtering problem on the console as I've seen in many 360 titles where the foreground blurs out inches ahead of you.

There are some maps on Mario which look absolutely stellar.. especially the Melty Molton Galaxy where you have lava bombs and molten lava all over the place and there are spectral effects coming off the rocks. The lighting effects coming off the ice, water, and rocks are some of the best I've seen; that game is extremely colorful in some places. Some levels are nothing special, but others look excellent.

Wii is definitely the weaker console out of the 3 when it comes to graphics, but it's not to the point where it doesn't compare to the other two. It compares just fine. There is an aliasing problem that will begin to show on high-def TVs because of the downscaling that occurs, but other than that it looks great.

There is more to graphics than the GPU; if a programmer/developer doesn't give a damn about the art style, then a game will still look like crap.. even on an 8800 Ultra Tri-SLI system.
