A Quick Look At CoD: Black Ops II On The Wii U GamePad

Destructoid- The night I got back from the Wii U press conference in New York City, I wrote a quick impressions piece of how Black Ops II played on the Wii U GamePad. Want to see how the game actually looks on the Gamepad? Well shoot this sucker into full screen and you'll get a general idea.

They said WiiU games run at 60fps and that is amazing for a console but I've heard rumors that COD on the ps3 and Xbox run at 60fps also.

ChunkyLover532285d ago

Call Of Duty games all run at 60fps on Xbox 360 and PS3, but the PS3 versions usually suffer from frame rate issues every year. More or less they both run 60fps though.

--Onilink--2285d ago

yes, all COD versions on consoles run at 60fps. But in the case of PS3/360 its usually with a cost of the resolution being below 720p. The WiiU version will do 60fps with 1080p (at least thats what they said) while also showing things in the gamepad at the same time

wiiu_peeu2285d ago

1080p upscaled you mean no different than ps3 or xbox. This will not be native plz doNT be fooled. Activision is trying their hardest to sell it off as something special, but it is not. They better hope it's as good sarge others. By the way go look at a ps3 cod says 720 and 1080 only bcus it can be upscaled so don't be fooled by 1080 claim on Wii u. So many uninformed gamers on. this site who should already know how Activision works.

--Onilink--2284d ago (Edited 2284d ago )


Actually no, i mean 1080p because thats what they said, and its not the 1st developer to say the wiiu can do that.

Im perfectly aware the comment might be a lie or just misunderstood, but until they say otherwise 1080p is 1080p, If you want to take a developers comment and pretend they are saying a lie without anything to back you up, then thats your problem

The guys from Polygon said that it didn't feel like it ran 60 fps. They were told that playing with 2 players (one player using the gamepad with their own screen and another using a Wii remote on the TV) would impact the framerate. We'll see when it's released, though. And, yes, they realize it isn't finished.

--Onilink--2284d ago


Well playing like that is basically the same as playing in splitscreen. And i dont think COD runs at 60fps when you are playing in splitscreen on other consoles

i still refuse to buy COD, but I'm glad its on the wii U, because it will undoubtingly sell systems, which means more developers will make games that i like for the wii U

The Wii U, The ultimate system to cover your needs when you have to go to the bathroom.

Sono4212284d ago

I wonder how far away you can go from the system though, and if the distance apart causes any sort of delay, I know I didn't phrase that right but i'm not quite sure how. I mean as you get further away does it take longer for information to be sent from the Wii U to the system and then back to the screen? and will it be big enough to notice? I know with my PS3 I can go in the basement and the PS3 will be upstairs and I can still control it. I don't know if there's any delay because I can't see the screen from downstairs obviously, but it would be really cool if I could do the same with Wii U without any delay.

24 Feet or 8 meters. they released a report stating so, the link is on Nintendo Everything's site.

More than anything else, the ability to play Wii U games on the gamepad will ultimately drive me to buy the console. I really like that they did that. Judging by the gamepad gameplay videos, it seems to work as advertized.

NeoTribe2284d ago

Kinect advertisment videos made it look like it worked. Now look at it. Gotta fight the damn thing the whole way.
