Digital Foundry: Wii U Version Of Resident Evil Revelations “Visibly Less Refined Than Xbox 360 Or PS3″


Respected tech analysis site Digital Foundry has recently compared performance comparisons between Resident Evil Revelations HD. The publication says that the Wii U version of the game is noticeably less refined than the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 versions of the game. Digital Foundry says that the Wii U version of Resident Evil Revelations contains some small but frequent fluctuations in smoothness adding some noticeable stutter to the overall experience. The site says it is particularly impressive to see just how well the Nintendo 3DS version of Resident Evil: Revelations holds up in comparison to the HD console builds. Here’s the closing snippet from the article.

Overall, Resident Evil: Revelations comes highly recommended for fans of the series wanting a more traditional take on the franchise. The 360 and PS3 versions are worth equal consideration, while the PC game, despite a few hiccups, provides the most fluid and responsive experience available due to running at much higher frame-rates and without needing powerful hardware to do so. Revelations is still well worth buying on the Wii U if you don’t own the other current-gen consoles – it’s still the same excellent game. But the more erratic performance means and less precise controls mean that it isn’t quite as fun to play.

Yesterday, a British soldier was reportedly hacked to death by two men shouting islamic statements in the streets of South London, in which the government is treating to be a terrorist attack.

Capcom Unveils ‘Blood’ Filled Swimming Pool To Mark Resident Evil Revelations Release

resident evil revelationsYou didn’t think Capcom could get any bolder and bloodier after last year’s human butchery for the Resident Evil 6 launch, did you? Although this may burst your bubble, Capcom has traversed the dark path once again to deliver you a blood-soaked day by presenting fans with the first blood filled swimming pool.

The pool is 16ft by 32ft large and over one metre in depth, taking in around 55,000 gallons of water, and as MCV reports, is equivalent to the blood of 11,327 people.  The pool will be filled with a series of Resident Evil treats for fans brave enough to swim into the deepest parts, which they are able to keep. And if you didn’t think the ‘blood’ water – made with non-staining coloured dye – was enough, you’ll find human torso floats, rows of brains and intestines representing lane markers and even zombie lifeguards to keep a steady eye out.

The event, which is scheduled to take place on May 25 and 26 in London’s Jupiter Wharf, is to mark the release of Resident Evil Revelations on May 24 for Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC – plus, it’s also entirely free to the public. However, there are only 100 tickets on offer, so make sure you grab yours here on May 20, when tickets go on sale to the general public. The pool is only open to those aged 16 and above, with under 18’s to be accompanied by an adult.

In support of the event, Capcom’s UK PR Manager Adam Merrett, said:

“Capcom are thrilled to able to create the world’s first blood swimming pool. Zombies have been kept very busy lately doing a variety of PR stunts, so rather than do the expected, we wanted to give them some time off for canal side relaxation in London.

“To non-zombies, the swimming pool will be shocking, gory and an incredibly disturbing experience – the perfect way to show that survival horror is back with a bang for Resident Evil Revelations.”
