    The house of Mario has spoken; the Switch will run the upcoming Zelda installment at 900p while the WiiU will be stuck at 720p, both running the game at 30fps.

    In a statement provided to IGN, Nintendo explained the following “key facts” about each version:
    This might come to a disappointment to many who would expect the upcoming (their preordered?) console to run one of the most anticipated game of the year at a glorious 1080p/60fps. Nevertheless, it should be noted that this decision has probably been made to ensure the gamer's best experience and shouldn't foretell the gameplay.

    I was totally just reading about this and was gonna make a thread, damn you Prans :hateit:

    But yeah, that's a little disappointing. Seems like the Switch isn't going to be nearly as powerful as the fanboys are wanking about if even Nintendo has to gimp their games to 900p/30fps.

    Doesn't surprise me that Nintendo can't be arsed to actually make their console powerful which would make sales higher if they did...

    It's still weird how their next-gen console is only capable of adding a couple hundred pixels.
    I mean, really? Not even a slight FPS increase? I'd be happy to play it in even 720p if it was 60 fps.

    Gambia, The
    but does it provide fun like a 1080p/60fps game?

    Looks like they might have left out things like draw distance and load times.
    But it is guesswork since it is not known what is in the final versions.

    Ehhh it's still 30 fps, but I imagine it's that way because the game would chug sometimes so they just limited it to 30 for no slowdown. Still looks clean af though

    More powerful would have driven up the cost of the console. It's already high enough.

    Uh... yes we do. This is a common misconception, but technically the human eye can perceive up to 255fps. Most humans however only consistently see 45fps.

    That confirms it then. No way the Switch has a mere X1 chip.

    It's pretty stupid of them to release it on the wii u. I mean, why would you go buy the switch version when you can just pirate it on the wii u? It's almost like Nintendo went brain dead with this idea.

    I don't know why the switch plays at 900p, the human eye can only see around 240p.

    Just play competitive games like counter strike @ 25fps, and play it a 150, just, do it... lol the eye CAN perceive a distinct difference till like 100fps, after that it's hard, but still doable... You must have never played a game on low-end PCs to say such BS dude... :/
