Criterion, developer of 'Need for Speed: Most Wanted' is creating an Advanced version of the game for Nintendo's Wii U console. The Xbox 360 and PS3 version of the game was released in 2012 while the Wii U version will hit retailers on March 19th.
What exactly are the differences between the Wii U and PS360 versions? First off, the Wii U version will have extended gameplay as well as more gameplay options. The game will use Gameplad implementation and take advantage of the Wii U's hardware. Also, one of the major differences are better Graphics.
Wii U Daily, a trusted site for Wii U news, has recently posted side-by-side screenshots of the 360 and Wii U version. The differences are dramatic as the Wii U version absolutely blows the Xbox 360 version of the game away. There is more sharpness, more dynamic lighting and shadowing, and possibly more polygons.
What about the PC version of the game? Well the Wii U version and PC version both look exactly the same. There aren't any noticable differences unless your PC has 32GB of GDDR5 RAM and you're using custom textures, but this more than likely isn't the case. The Wii U has more RAM and Processing power than the PS3 and Xbox 360, so developers can essentially create bigger and better games on the platform.
Of course, once the Xbox 720 and PS4 hit retailers, the games will look much better than the Wii U version, but not by much. Developers will be able to create games for all 3 consoles in the future without compromising too much details. In the original Wii days, the system had almost no power and developers had to essentially create a whole new game with inferior graphics and entirely different controls. Now, with the Wii U version, developers don't have to do this. They can port the game directly from the PS4 or Xbox 720 without any major hassle. At the same time, the Wii U version has a touchscreen embedded in the Gamepad which will let Developers bring out their creativity. Once this game is released, you can bet that Developers will see what Criterion has done and will attempt to mimic their ideas in a sense.
