Yep nintendo even said it. im guessing the ghost recon footage came from the wii u since they had a demo on the show floor. I think we will see some of these titles and others tonight at the roundtable.

WAT!

i did not have the opportunity to watch, so i am just wondering: when did nintendo say it? was it during the initial showing of the footage? did he really say: 'um...these are from xbox and sony...not our actual games'?

I thought this was already generally known.

In any case, I thought it was good news, rather than bad. It means those trailers don't really give us an idea of how the games will eventually look. The developers out there who have been playing with the Wii U kits imply that games may actually receive graphical upgrades when ported over, and that lackluster preview video of 3rd party games showed no such thing, so I was always hoping it was just stock footage.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

Yeah, I figured they did. Zelda HD blew all of those games away in terms of graphical gorgeousness anyway. (except... well, that Aliens one looked pretty damn impressive)

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

so no one is offended by the showing of videos that, during the time they were shown, would be presumed to be of a nintendo product but weren't? you see only 'good' in this? you see no misrepresentation?

i think i have just entered 'the twilight zone'....

I just found it funny that people were saying that the graphics from that video sucked and were way below the 360/PS3.

Who cares? I seem to remember Microsoft having some demos that were running on PC hardware a few years ago.

Yeah... I think some people feel pretty stupid, especially putting two videos together and coming to the conclusion that WiiU's power is below 360/PS3, when the footage is from the latter systems. It shows people hate just to hate. Now, people are trying to find loopholes and find something to complain about this'

This is the mentality of human beings.

First of all, that's ironic and funny. Secondly, these videos aren't necessarily bound to one system. The publishers technically own the videos too and can use them elsewhere. I fail to see any problem with this

You'd be surprised. There's a couple of folks here on nl I know he said that. I wonder how they feel now.

LOL I saw a comment like that on Youtube. The video was about 3rd party games that would be on WiiU.This person said: "Those graphics still aren't as good as PS3/Xbox". I was laughing so hard at the fail of a comment that was.

There's no problem with this. As graphical power increases, multiplatform games tend to look virtually the same on all systems anyway. They couldn't have pulled this off in the 16-bit days, that's for sure. But at least it assuages everyone's fear that the new Nintendo console isn't a graphical powerhouse.

Well, I think the Tekken video was running off Wii U, as it had the drawing and stuff, but I dunno.

Dude, just laugh. Because they got duped by Nintendo. It must feel good to get back at the haters lol

On other websites, I saw lots of the same comments, and when it was revealed that the footage shown is not from the WiiU console, then the whole story changed into "Nintendo misleading" when they didn't. I'm pretty sure it's been said that these games are expected to be on WiiU- not "Footage from the WiiU console". Reggie even came out and said it shortly after.

This isn't like what Sony did back in 2005/2006 where they said it was 'real time footage' of the PS3. We find out it's all pre-rendered. That's misleading.

Either way, free entertainment for me.

After seeing tonight's Ubisoft/Nintendo roundtable discussion, it seems like almost none of the developers has fully tested what the console is capable of. It only makes sense that they would use footage from the other consoles as mere representations of the games that are coming to WiiU. I think that if anything, this new console reveal is about 1/2 a year early
