Microsoft will definitely opt for the latest hardware, they always have and they've got the money. Sony may not, but at the very least they will more than likely still be more powerful than something 5-6 years old when it's released.

We've all seen what it's capable of, it's nothing more than what a PS3 or 360 can do. All their tech demos (except where it was displaying something on the controller of course) could have just as easily been rendered using a PS3 or 360.
Except those weren't the typical tech demo type scenes. I forget the term (so sue me), but Nintendo went away from typical cut scene format in the tech demos, and it looked better than the PS360, including cut scenes. I don't think we've seen everything the WiiU can do just yet.

As far as graphics go, nothing can go better beyond PS3/Xbox360's graphics. The only thing that changes is the amount of internal memory they can use to make games longer.

Don't be so sure of that.

This of course depends on the price of the tvs later on and whether or not the 10 year plan sticks around.

The Wii U is not threatening Microsoft and Sony by having upgraded software or hardware so they can actually keep making games for the PS360 for the next 2 to 4 years.

Its already been 6 years almost for both PS360 so they can manage another year or 2.

I hope they do this and lower the prices of games in general. So instead of 2 new games costing you nearly $130 with tax depending on where you live, it will be around $110 at $50 per game.

It looked better than most games, yes, but not all games.

You're kidding right? 360 and PS3 graphics are terrible compared to the visuals I can achieve on my PC. There is plenty they can do for graphics. They also don't need any more storage to make games longer, they've got plenty of space already. Games are short because they make them short.

Why is everyone talking about PS3 and 360 in the Zelda games discussion?

In Skyward Sword I defeated Koloktos the boss of the Ancient Cistern, that was a good battle. I am now up to the Trial in Lanayru Desert

When I got Skyward Sword, I stayed up all night playing it. Managed to beat the game in 2 days.

I like battling the Imprisoned. The 2nd and 3rd times were kind of hard at first, but now I can beat them easily.
 
Finally achieved victory in rebattling and conquering enough bosses. I obtained the Hylian Shield in Hero mode. In the process of getting it, I literally died over 100 times. Dang The Imprisoned! But I gotta say, I love that trumpet that plays when you're Groose and having to toss bombs at it.

Damn that trial. I got caught by a lantern ghost like 10 seconds after getting the last tear. And I was on the opposite end of the map. I bet I had half the guardians chasing me by the time I got back to safety.

On Eldin Trial right now, don't know for sure how that's going to go.

They're all pretty easy as long as you keep moving. People seem to think the trials are a lot more difficult than they really are.

Oh geeze those trials scare the crap out of me. I knowi t's just a fun and innocent game, but when I get caught by a ghost and the guardians start chasing after me I freak out and can never make it back >_< I made it past the first trial.... Now I'm in the Ancient Cistern. Pretty creepy place o_o Almost as creepy as Ghirahim and his 2-foot-long tongue.

By the way, does anyone know how to kill Moblins? I know they don't chase me but when I attack them, all I can do is break their shield and jiggle their gut.

Don't know how much truth there is to this, but... yeah. Is IGN reliable when it comes to stuff like this?

It's been reported everywhere, it's really just rumour right now. But with the amount of different sites reporting it I'd say it's true, or very close to true. If it is true then their next machine is already three graphics core generations ahead of what the Wii U is using, and huge changes have come in those three generations.

I really don't think we should get back into this though, not in this thread anyway, we just got back on topic. I'll discuss it over VM though.

Square one of them up, dash at them and you'll climb their shield and jump over them, leaving them exposed from behind for a brief moment. If you're good enough, you can stay behind it as it turns around and keep hitting it.

Alternatively, you can also hit them with arrows from afar or drop bombs on them using the Beetle. If you upgrade the bow all the way, it only takes a few arrows to bring one down. You can try rolling bombs at them, but the distances can be tricky to gauge properly.
