"Toy Story graphics, emotion engine, etc"

"You will say wow!"

We've heard this same hype bloated hyperbole from every major console manufacturer.

I believe the console has much more graphical prowess. The system is new, but give it a few years and we will begin to see really graphically intensive games. As gamers all of us win no matter what consoles we own.

When Reggie gets fired from Nintendo a few years from now, he'll look back and watch this video over again and he'll says "Where Did I Go Wrong?"...

'Dramitically better' is what makes this line not true. As does the idea you can play any where in the home..Unless you live in a Studio Apartment with no walls lol.

The game does look better though in many instances than the 360 version. The PS3 version is the worst looking version of the game, but lets all be honest here. The differences, graphically between the 3 console versions really is negligible.

The 360 version was the standard platform and not optimized for PS3 or Wii U.

All in all though, this is classic PR. But When any of the figure heads speak, they all lie and tell half truths, half lies and the like.

This isn't limited to Nintendo. But I expected better. Wii U should sell on its factual merits, not lies.
PopRocks359  +   1008d ago
To be fair, it's not exactly like the ones downing the Wii U enjoy using facts at all times either.
Gr81  +   1008d ago
Pops. The ones downing the Wii U 90% of the time don't have any intention of buying one..ever. And just hate it because it has Nintendo's name on it.

I see a lot Nintendo does right with this system, but also acknowledge the things that need improvement.

this is a funny statement to put out especially from Reggie himself. I kinda respect him all these time until this that really make my eyes rolling. I mean a system that come out 6 years after the competitors that has the capability to finally run games in HD/ Yet it is still not even native HD but upscaled from the same resolution of the 6 years old console. And he dare to openly call that DRAMATICALLY better. This really put his credibility down to drain from this moment on...

reggie had to stretch his arse real wide to get that one out

The PC version doesn't even look dramatically better so why would the Wii U?
Sugreev2001  +   1008d ago
I might get some disagrees,but I've never liked Reggie at all.He lacks the graciousness that Saturo and Jack Tretton possess.He always comes across as someone who's too smug to actually care,and always talks like he's reading off a teleprompter.Here,he did not need to make claims he cannot back up on...especially after the console is already out.Not to mention,the successors of it's competitors are yet to be announced,but will absolutely be more powerful than the WiiU when they do get announced.
Monstar  +   1008d ago
Nope, you're spot on regarding reggie. He does what he is told OBVIOUSLY, but how unatural it seems as you said, reading off a teleprompter. It's hard to take his words seriously.

As far as those claims, totally stupid and not needed. Claiming COD looks dramatically better over the competition, HA!

People of course will see this and eat it up, expecially the young crowd. Sadely due to the label being NINTENDO nastalgia for many kicks in.
ozstar  +   1008d ago
Nintendo will be profitable is all he had to say.
DJ  +   1008d ago
After we just found out the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 can't even keep up with the PS3 and 360 versions? Right Reggie, right...
ozstar  +   1008d ago
In all fairness, the best games on their respective consoles are ALWAYS first and second party games.

This is especially true on Nintendo consoles.
Gr81  +   1008d ago
Wait a sec, the PS3 version is technically the least impressive version of BO2..Wii U and 360 are on par with Wii U being somewhat superior, but nothing to brag about, as far as visuals go, but playing off screen as well as allowing Wii Remote support gives the Wii U version something to brag about.

Don't lump PS3 and 360 together when it comes to multiplats as 360 is generally seen as supporting the superior versions of them. And I don't think it is because 360 is technically stronger than the PS3.
kopicha  +   1008d ago
And Wii U version does not support live cast on Youtube when compared to other platforms. Added features with certain original features also being taken away does not make it a somewhat superior version
Monstar  +   1008d ago
Dramatically better, LMFAO...can't get over that.

And how they Demo zelda a tech demo not even running on actual wii specs.

Oh man...Reggie sure is gonna get A LOT of backlash for this statement....
TemplarDante  +   1008d ago
Reggie, I thought you were just a weird looking guy, now I see youre a con artist also.

In checking out Lens of Truth's review of COD:BO for all the systems, the WiiU holds up fairly well considering this the first COD for a Nintendo Console. Regardless of what system you are playing they are almost identical. And what I mean by identical is that if you are playing the game any graphical differences are so minor that for most gamers the difference won't be noticed and will not effect a gamer's experience.

I did notice that the WiiU does have a lower FPS compared to the other 2 systems. The 360 had a 15% higher FPS and the PS3 was around 7%. Again this won't effect a gamers experience. It was noticed that the WiiU has no screen tearing, a plus for the Wii U but again no real impact on gameplay. Lower FPS, no screen tearing...a wash.

Regardless of the various sites and the graphical comparisons, Reggie was pulling a fast one by saying that COD:BO "looks dramatically better" on the Wii U. I don't see the "dramatic" difference. I personally think that all versions of COD:BO are comparable and the differences are minor.

Wii U has some potential but claims like this on a national news site can backfire on Nintendo.

LOL @ all the people grilling him. Are any of you a fan of any certain politician? You've been lied too way more than this.
RFornillos4  +   1008d ago
i don't see any difference from any PS3 or Xbox360 exec/rep saying the game looks good on them, or saying their product is better than others. it's not lying, it's called marketing. given a scenario where each company rep is asked
to comment regarding BLOPS 2 in their console, what answer would you get, naturally that it looks good on their product. no one will dare say, "oh hey, theirs look better than ours", otherwise you get fired.

jeez, get over yourselves already. you can't expect a company rep to say, "hey our new console is at par with the other consoles". the problem with the bashers is you think life is just how you perceive it to be. anyway, the Wii U does look graphically better for BLOPS 2, albeit the frame rate issues, and watching the comparison with the Xbox360, I also admit that for some area Xbox360 excels, give and take really. and for multiplayer, the 3 consoles are identical. so let's just leave it at that and stop bashing each console, coz really all this negativity is just plain BS.

I would have given anything to see his face, if the CNN correspondent had said something like "As opposed to the Wii, where ALL games looked dramatically WORSE?"
kupomogli  +   1008d ago
Reggie. When your time comes you're going to spend eternal damnation in hell for all of eternity. Maybe then you'll think about your actions here on Earth.

Reggie: "Why did I lie about Nintendo's consoles. They're only video games. Ahhhh. It burns!!"
TheBaseFight  +   1008d ago
This is kind of funny but, it goes to show that if you have a big title attached to your name and mess up on TV... Everybody will know.
