So... I could pretend I am trying to choose which to buy, but I am not. I don't own any of these system and don't intend to for the time being xD. But I was curious about one thing. Are Vita's graphics better than Wii's graphics? How much is the gap between them? I'm hoping to see some screenshots if possible but I guess it's better to keep my speculations low.

Also, sorry for making a shitty thread, but, what the hell, gbatemp is full of them.

Well you could've searched for some videos on YT and compared it for yourself :P In terms of producing graphics quality, I think the Vita's got more power (correct me if I'm wrong), but if you wanna have a go at some great games, then I would recommend the wii for the moment. :)

Then again, you're comparing a new handheld with a home console, that's been around for quite some time.

I tried searching, but it tended to compare Wii U graphics with the Vita...

Aka choose the Vita.

Well they're both pretty solid systems, I don't think you'd do poorly with either one, I'm just suggesting he ask somewhere else since everyone here is heavily one-sided.

Really I just suggest looking at both systems, considering what they're capable of, and making an informed decision based on that info.

It's not that the wii's graphics are bad.
It's just that nintendo built a standard def system
at a time when consumers were looking for any
excuse to buy a new hd widescreen.

I intended that as a joke, but I agree with the second part.

Tho if you are leaning towards the wii, matter well save up for the wii u.

This isn't what he mainly asked anyway. :P

The Wii without a doubt. It's an established system and has a better game library not to mention great homebrew.

Vita's more powerful (not a huge gap, though) and games do look better thanks to modern shaders.

Am I the only one who read in the OP that he did NOT ask of which to buy, only which had the best graphics?
I have not seen the Vita in real life, but I would guess that it is miles better looking than the Wii based on a few things (and screenshots).
The Wii just... doesn't look good. It's fun as hell, but compared to a lot of things, the graphics are bad.
The Vita has a high resolution screen, is quite new, has killer tech inside the hood... and even if it'd have the same resolution as the Wii, a small screen with a higher pixel density would look better. So to sum it up, it's miles better.

You're correct but it's worth noting that most Vita games run at a sub-native resolution effectively making the high-res screen kind of pointless. But yeah, Vita games do look better mostly because of shaders (kind of like how Revelations on the 3DS looks closer to a PS360 game than any Wii game thanks to dem shaders).

Good one.

The Vita isn't miles past the Wii in term of graphics as I've seen. It's maybe 1.5 x Xbox with modern GPU feature effects. Vita's smaller screen enables it to look much better the Wii. So Vita wins.

Also as Soulx pointed out, most Vita games don't even run native res and some are even lower than Wii's res.

Sub-native resolution or not, what matters is the end result. And it looks better because of shaders? Well, that's quite obvious. Shaders are a big part of computer graphics, and again, what matters is the end result.
Shaders are also a great way for doing operations and sometimes calculate important things... (Been doing some of that... considering I'm a thesis away from Master of Science and Engineering in Media Technology and Advanced Computer Graphics Programming) :P

I never thought that I'll hear the "It has gaems" argument in reference to the Wii, even on GBAtemp. It has a handful of good games, let's underline that with a very thick marker, mmm-kay? There's not a whole lot of'em among the shovelware and even then, most are first-party. Don't get me wrong, I have a Wii and I love it to bits - it's the console that gave me freaking No More Heroes but that doesn't change the fact that the list of titles worth some interest is quite short.

As for Vita's AA and resolution, they're both just fine. I don't know why screen shots look like this on the PC - it's either the built-in screen shot app being derpy or the OLED screen being amazing, but you can't see the jaggies on the system very often.
