I have had many arguments with people who are classing Wii U as ‘Next Gen’ so perhaps this comparison shot of Batman Arkham City running on both PS3 and Wii-U will convince my opponents that Wii U is very much ‘this gen’, in specifications, if not numbering conventions.
Even taking into consideration Batman’s new armoured suit and its apparent sheen, it’s quite apparent that the Wii-U is lacking the definition and textures in the cityscape found in the PS3 version of the game. Differences are minimal but the Wii U certainly doesn’t look like a generational leap in comparison to anything but the Wii. Perhaps that’s the point.
