GotGame: Preview | Call of Duty: Black Ops II for the Wii U is Legit

GotGame: Well all that is about to change with next month’s release of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Yes the game is coming out for the previously mentioned consoles, but it too is coming to the Nintendo Wii U. After having played the game at a demo session earlier this week, I can safely say that what Activision has in store for Nintendo fans, is most definitely a legit COD experience. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Wii U)

Guess Wii U is going to be the best for at least a year and a Half. Till Nextbox and PS4 come out. That should give Nintendo some time to kick butt!
Unless the casuals buy again then ps4/720 will own. Nintendo never & I mean NEVER is the best at core gaming. When was the last time they sucessfully did on a console? N64?

WiiU version is not even dx11 like the pc version.

Well considering DX11 is a Microsoft API, no duh.

The Gamecube was a monster of a console, actually. And Nintendo has offered plenty of core gaming experiences with the Wii this generation, but the problem is that the Wii had pretty lackluster third party support.

GameCube was Amazing! Are you kidding me? I wont buy Xbox, because in due time the 1st party games come out on PC and I Update my PC all of the time, as to keep it as fast as possible. If you have read the reports PS4 could be at least 16 months away... Hence me saying For the next year and a half Nintendo is going to be amazing. Have you read the reports about Games Like Zombi U, and also aside from this article from Activision about BOPS 2 having a "a clear advantage" over other systems on Wii U. ....Nintendo also purchased rights to Bayonetta, as well as Fatal Frame... http://www.computerandvideo...
So Nintendo now has games that no other system will...They are not going to port Fatal Frame to Xbox when they Co-own it. Bayonetta, same thing. Those are just two....BOPS2 is going to be better on Wii U http://www.gamingexaminer.c...
I will more than likely get a PS4 But for now the versions I will buy for games will be Wii U.

xflo360  +   648d ago
For you maybe, i have to wait 49 days :'(
I may well get blops 2 on wii u now, it looks aces!
1upgamer99  +   648d ago
You know the ones who Disagree are just jealous, because they talked so much smack about the Wii U, they are too ashamed to buy it. These people who disagree read all the great stuff about Nintendo and how developers like Activision are saying its great...There are sooo many articles from very RELEVANT people working on the system its too bad these people are going to wait for Nextbox and PS4 and miss out on some BAD A&& games!

i hope other games use the gamepad as a second screen for multiplayer idea. even though i'm not interested in this game, it's nice to see that they're at least trying.
stragomccloud  +   648d ago
Call of Duty has been, and always will be a guilty pleasure.
sandman224  +   648d ago
Is it really going to run in full 1080p. I read an early article saying its 1080p. If so I'm all over the wii U version.
CryingFreeman87  +   648d ago
It totally is. Should be the definitive version!
Anyway, im interested to see how the killstreaks work with the gamepad in single player online/campaign. I want to control the Predator (or similar) on GP screen as though it were the Laptop/Arm screen (in game), that would be sweeeet.
linkratos  +   648d ago
I would not bet on it. To marketers and stuff HD, full HD, high def, those all mean the same thing. Just happened with NSMBU, Nintendo's website said 1080p but then they took it down after realizing the mistake.
Ramon3MR  +   648d ago
Just emailed Activision to confirm...

Cool hit me up when they notify you. I really want to know.
mshope10  +   648d ago
people can cry and hate on wii-u all they want.I know next month I'm going to get to play c.o.d in full 1080p at 60fps on my HDTV on a console for the first time ever.

and I don't have to wait over a year to do it. and I wont have to pay 500 to 600 hundred dollars to do it.

plus this version will have everything the others do but will have the best HD resolution and extra gamepad features.

everything I said was the truth so bring on the tears and hate crybabies we love it!
mshope10  +   648d ago
oh please tell me graphics don't matter please!
Straightupbeastly  +   648d ago
Must suck for Sony. They couldn't get CoD to run smooth on PS3 if their lives depended on it and with one shot got it running like a beast in the Wii u. Guess it's the PS3's lackluster hardware.
wiiulee  +   648d ago
its more then legit...the wiiu will have options and extras that the others will not have and it runs in 1080p....i can hear some haters crying already...they may start another boycott claim

i seriously think ninty just got the timing wrong with the gamecube. the gcn was indeed a beast, and it was specifically tailored for the hardcore. sega noted that no other machine (AT THE TIME OK) could pull of the graphics of f-zero at 60fps, silicon knights (back when they were good)(eternal darkness/mgs twin snakes also said these technical achievments were only possible on gamecube. capcom (and i rest my case here) said that the resident evil remakes of "0&1" could only be on gamecube, then shinji mikami while trying to push the hardware to its limits. put the icing on the cake when he made resident evil 4. not sure why he couldnt fit the ada missions but when the game got ported to the ps3 it was obvious which machine had the more power. i wouldnt seriously have supported the wii but why no one supported the gamecube. ill never know. oh and the water of mario sunshine is still better then any water in any game. almost drank the freakin thing. youtube it in hd though.

The Gamecube is the definition of Core Gaming man, that was Nintendo's strategy, 4 controller ports, low $199 price point, some of the best first-party/exclusive titles of the gen(The Legend of Zelda WW and TP, Super Mario Sunshine, Smash Bros. Meelee, F-Zero, MGS Twin Snakes, Resident Evil 4, Tales of Symphonia, Baten Kaitos Series, Pikmin 1 and 2, DK Jungle Beat, Super Monkey Beat, Batallion Wars, TimeSplitters, Metroid Prime, etc.), and not to mention, a kickass ergonomic controller, and the WaveBird!

Gamecube. Probably one of the hardest core gaming consoles ever. If only Nintendo made it with standard Discs and made the design more appealing to third party developers hoping to sell games on it, it would've competed with PS2 (Many people often mention how the lack of third party game sales on the system could be because of it's design that lured people away. At least that's what I heard.

its not gonna have enough online players at launch after 2-3 months
Gamer-Z  +   648d ago
A smaller COD community to play online with sounds perfect.

why not? after 2-3 months I would say that 2-3 million Wii U's will be sold at least. In that time I could see 1 million Black Ops 2 units selling on the Wii U. That's a lot of players to play online with. Seeing that you only play with like 16 players online at a time, I think it's more than enough. You just won't have those wanna-be 12 year old gangsters who think they run the show even though they have to get their Mommy to take them down to the mall. I can do without them and their poop mouths.
braydox21  +   648d ago
although thats saying the wii u is still going to be seen as a casual magnet or child magnet in other words you will instead of 10 year olds 6,7 year olds will be there instead. just saying the wii u is going to be family orientated just how the 360 is trying to be. so i do not think that escape is that easy. on another note congradulations nintendo for becoming core friendly for this generations gamers.
Ramon3MR  +   648d ago
On a related note...despite it's horrendous physical design, the Gamecube was awesome.
PygmelionHunter  +   648d ago
Objection! The Gamecube is totally sexeeh! Too bad I damaged mine for touching the horribly placed disk reader without knowing what it was at the time...
Ramon3MR  +   648d ago
Wasn't a fan of the lunch-box design w/handle...didn't mind the color...also would've liked full sized DVDs. Software was awesome though.
Schawk  +   648d ago
O lovley, were are all the haters now, why would you not want COD in 1080.
I do and i cant wait to get it , and to be honest the ps3 could not run this game properly and the wiiU can do it out of the box in no time while just ticking over,, o yea the wiiU is powerfull you better beleive it haters.
