Australian developer Straight Right who are handling the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3 have confirmed that Mass Effect will will run at 720p. News broke yesterday from Nintendo Power stating that the game will run at 1080p, but this information appears to be incorrect.

  1. Put on your helmets, here comes another flame war -.-
    Suppose i should throw in my opinion.
    First of all, the company handling the port, go look at their track record…yeah.
    Second, its fucking EA. Most likely theyre still sour as fuck because Nintendo didnt want to use shitty Origin, so they probably put next to no money into porting the game over.
    Thirdly, does it really make a difference? And no, ME3 didnt not run in 1080p on consoles, my TV is full HD and it only did 720p.

      • Considering the length and size of the game, which is ALOT bigger than it seem due to all the variables in a game like this, a variety of dialouge/cutscene combonations and options, im surprised it looked as good as it did on my ps3, i mean the game needs 2 disks on the 360 xD

      • Your opinion, but i loved the series, and i hope to see more. Although it was a joke how the ending literally rewarded you nothing, and the extended cut just made ot make more sense, and had a short pretencious VO over a couple of pictures -.- i felt robbed, but the rest of the game and series up to that point was fantastic

        • I like ME 1&2 but this game is just terrible and a letdown. This man here sums up my feelings for the game perfectly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGFJ43jv4eg&feature=plcp Honestly I think the franchise needs to die, if EA and Bioware continue this series (Which they will since they’re greedy cunts) it will become like all those horror franchises that went on for so long. There end up being too many sequels and the plot gets stretched out for so long that nobody takes it seriously anymore.

          • True :/ i wanted to see a Garrus game though D: haha xD but i agree, and one of the things i like about Nintendo is they have franchises that last, but mainly because they done release them all the time. I mean since the ps2, theres been 6 God of War games, including Ascension, but not the monile ones ect. And i loved the series, but i have no interest in Ascension, and i enjoyed only 1 of the psp ones, and even the original was meh, only really got into 2, but loved the hell out of 3. But its time has past, because realisticly, theyve tied the game down too far, and spammed releases. Mass Effect should end too, before i get bored of it, let Bioware doing something new

    • Wow, they only have 1 other game that they made, and was it even good? Are they even capable of 720p?

  4. Here come the trolls, do-do-do-do, here comes the trolls and I say run for your life.
    Lol sorry I’m bored. Kinda bummed actually I just got my 360 at christmas and have been holding out on ME3 thinking Wii U will have better graphics. It will still be a better experience I’m sure and I’ll still wait but it still bothers me =/. Guess I’ll just kill more things in skyrim until I get some more games.

  5. Nintendo….failed to deliver once again. I cant wait for Durango and Orbis. Nintendo you were great but now you fail to deliver a true next gen system.

    Was nice knowing you.

    • Why are you talking to a fucking mirror, Ass? If you’re waiting for Orbit gum and Dodge Durango, you’ll have to wait 2 years (Xbox8) to 4 years (PS4). The problem is both of them won’t be quantum leap and the VP of Sony Europe have stated the PS4 is aimed at both casuals and women and the Xbox8 won’t be backwards compatible and you won’t be playing used games.

  6. hahaha. sometimes, I can’t help but laugh at something like this. As much as I want a Wii U, overhyping is not good, even more so if it’s something that is so vague. Wii U will do well in some way, but not through super hardware prowess, like it or not.

  7. *shrug* I was never getting this game for the graphics anyway, makes no real difference to me. Sure 1080p would have been nice but I’m not about to complain because it’s not there.

    • People bitch about a game if it doesn’t display it in FULL HD and the fact that its a new console people seem to find it annoying when a game that is on a next gen console isn’t 1080p and so they bitch about it.

      That’s how things work around here sadly

    • The big fuss is about Nintendo Power telling us it was going to be 1080 but that it wasn’t which is bad because I see Nintendo Power as a creditable source of information.

  8. I don’t really expect much from the Wii U at launch, all I expect it to be for now is a HD Nintendo console with an awesome controller.

    I don’t mind if its only going to be 720p, I’m still getting the game. I never got the chance to buy it for PC since my computer was down for a week or my PS3/Xbox 360, so may as well get this one because I actually liked both Mass Effect 1 and 2.

    I can’t wait, my body is ready Nintendo

  9. 1080p 60fps should be the standard for all wii u games I’m sick of this flip flopping bullshit, obviously they cheaped out on the hardware. Im definetly purchasing it day one but I honestly will feel slightly cheated buying a new console that plays existing games graphically worse. Hopefully the controller is at least all its made out to be ;p

    • Does it really matter? The ps360 doesn’t run at even 720p without up-scaling and suffers frames dropping. And it’s not that it can’t, it’s that they probably don’t see the point. Also this could change, they could change it.

  10. I’m finding it hilarious that people are whining that this won’t be 1080, when the Wii wouldn’t even put out 480…. dare I say…. p? Nintendo is a joke as a console, and will remain a joke console. Their handhelds are awesome, but the Xbox and Playstation have them whipped as far as traditional console gameplay goes. You can thank the gimmick of motion control for that.
