Why should I buy this game on the Wii U & NOT on the PS3/XBox 360? Are there any "exclusives" or bonuses to having the GamePad other than the "larger overhead map"? And does anyone know if the Wii U's Controller pad pro will have the same button type of control sticks? Thanks

Better Graphics. The Wii-U's GPU has already been stated by developers as producing higher resolution pixels and better graphics.

So far only Ubisoft has taken advantage of this though, can't say the same for other ports ( like the Batman AC port)

The Pro Controller will have the EXACT SAME buttons and sticks as the GamePad, minus the screen. It's an Xbox 360 controller with the fact buttons and right stick switched.

As far as which version to get, yeah, as been said already, Ubisoft has been taking more advantage of the Wii U's power than any other company so far.

One thing worth noting is that the PS3 version has a big sticker on the cover art claiming 4 exclusive missions.

Better graphics or more gameplay content? Unless the Wii U version really uses the controller screen well in addition to better graphics, I'd probably have to go with more gameplay.

The Wii U version actually doesn't have better graphics, they are choppy as heck on this Wii U version. If ya don't believe it try hitting up IGN.com Or Gameinformer, or any other online video game website. they say all the same thing pretty much!

I actually have the game, the graphics are not worse. Where on IGN does it say the graphics are worse on the Wii U than the PS3 or 360? The game does have a number of glitches across all platforms. Online video can be choppy so that is a poor indicator of performance as the capturing hardware/software could have issues, as could the hosting site and destination computer.

The wii u graphics are better in my opinion. Had two tvs hooked up and checked. Plus being able to play on gamepad is a plus for me.

Guys, the graphics are the same, i checked, the huge difference is you get more for your money on wiiU. Off TV play, plus a choice of the map on gamepad, which makes for a cleaner picture on TV. You can still just play it as if it were xbox with the pro controller. So you get the best of both worlds on wiiU.

Plus no installationjs necessary, not sure on the ps3, as mine used to have installations on games.

No they're not. And no you didn't.

I heard they patched it where you can move the entire HUD to the gamepad and it makes it more "cinematic" (but I can't confirm that yet as I haven't purchased it yet).

If you have a Wii U and not the other consoles, get it. PC version of course looks/runs the best. PS3 version has extras. Wii U version runs worse, but does have the advantage of being able to play it just on the control pad (although with obvious compression artifacts).
