Here's the litmus test WiiHD has laid down for Wii ports. If the publisher is pushing their PS360 assets on anyone with a pulse, but you can't kick and drag Wii assets out of them, it means the Wii version looks like crap. If there are PS360 previews months before there are Wii previews, the game plays like crap. If the press releases spend lots of time talking about PS360 features and remain ambiguous on Wii features until a month before release, the Wii gets crappy features. It didn't take rocket science to come up with the formula, but it seems to be holding pretty true.
After a lot of time waiting while Quantum of Solace PS360 was hyped and showed off everywhere, NeoGAF user The-Switcher claims to have the first Wii screenshot of Quantum of Solace. This is the game that is supposed to be using the same modified CoD4 engine that WaWii is using. But look at that water (after the break). Bond himself doesn't look that bad (though his jacket does leak into his pants on the lower left), but there's a lot not to like. And remember, this is a screenshot they've chosen to Show-Off the game. Imagine the ones that ended up being rejected as good publicity shots… No, that isn't a poorly textured rug, it's a pool. It's also an omen for 2008 Activision games using the modified CoD4 engine. I'll let you guess whether it's a good or bad omen.
So that's what the modified CoD4 engine can do? It's actually good news in a way. WiiHD has decided to sell our company car after a little tinkering. And we're betting our 'modifed' Jaguar will be super popular on ebay.
The first Wii Screen is after the break. View at your own risk. If you need to recuperate afterwards, go look at The Conduit's gallery.
