E3 2011: Wii U Third Party Game Footage Was Taken From X360 & PS3 Versions -StickTwiddlers

In a post Nintendo conference interview with Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime, he stated that any third party game footage shown in the conference, featuring games such as Darksiders 2 and Battlefield 3, is taken from X360 and PS3 versions of the titles, and not from versions developed for the Wii U.

Sigh... Nintendo this is not looking good for you

Max_Dissatisfaction2661d ago

thats what they said about wii...look how that turned out

Muletroid2661d ago

lol what in what parallel universe did this happen

trounbyfire2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

I think its a really bad move doing this. and also keeping the wii name.

i think people are tired of the ds line and 3ds should have been named differently as well.

BTW nintendo won e3... MY @$$

StanSmith2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

I find it funny that many here said these same games didn't look good graphically. They weren't up to 360 & PS3 standards was what was said.

I guess that says alot about alot of the users on this site.

Face it, people bitched about the wii not being HD, Nintendo release the WiiU with 1080p HD graphics.
People bitched that they don't have 3rd party support, now they do.
People bitched that Wii was underpowered, WiiU is more powerful.
People bitched that motion control was a gimmick, now Sony & MS have motion support it's suddenly relevant.

The way i see it is those who bitched about the wii and still moan now nintendo listened to them, had no intention of buying a Nintendo console.

VampiricDragon2661d ago

exactly

And the darkstalker 2 developer just said that the wii U is lightyears more powerful

and thats coming from a dev

news4geeks2661d ago

They were right. Those graphics aren't up to the usual standards of the ps3 and 360 and should be concerned if it was gameplay from a new console.

Theyellowflash302661d ago

Yeah Nintendo addressed a lot of the issues people had with the wii. And people are still bitching.

iWishTifaWasReal2661d ago

yea but i took them 6 years to get to the 7th Generation. sighh :/

StanSmith2661d ago

@above

"yea but i took them 6 years to get to the 7th Generation. sighh :/ "

Just like it took MS, Sony and their Fans 6 years to admit Motion Control wasn't a gimmick and was innovative just as Nintendo said it would be.
I wonder if you claimed the PS2 wasn't current gen last gen because it was the weakest console in terms of power?

Lets face facts here, if Sony & Microsoft could grab the "casuals" like nintendo did, they would have dumped the "core" along time ago. They play to the "hardcore" because they can't grab the market that nintendo did.

@marioftw "Just like it took MS, Sony and their Fans 6 years to admit Motion Control wasn't a gimmick and was innovative just as Nintendo said it would be."

Since move has been in development since the ps2 era, that negates some of what you said as far as sony, not taking motion gaming seriously. Nintendo had no choice since they knew they couldn't compete graphically with the ps3/360 they gambled and won. The rest is fine.

"Lets face facts here, if Sony & Microsoft could grab the "casuals" like nintendo did, they would have dumped the "core" along time ago. They play to the "hardcore" because they can't grab the market that nintendo did."

Sony already has a casual market has for 2 gens, not nintendo's new "casual" market, but a casual market nonetheless. Ms already has abandoned their core gamer for nintendo's casual market, hence the shift of focus to kinect.

"casual"yea but i took them 6 years to get to the 7th Generation. sighh :/ ""

And it also took them that long to properly support online gaming, a reasonable store with storage not being an issue, assuming this is even addressed with wii u.

Sorry i still think nintendo dropped the ball worse with online period, than sony and ms did with motion controlled gaming.

Both sides have their hypocritical moments, but nintendo has alot more ground to make up than sony or ms.

LOL, WOW, Nintendo. Talk about false advertisement.

The tech demo wasn't impressive at all for non-gameplay. I wouldn't be surprised if the WiiU versions of those games looked worse than the PS3/360 counterparts.

Theyellowflash302661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

The native resolution for WiiU games will be 1080p if it doesn't look as good it will be the developers fault not the WiiU's fault. Kinda like multiplat games not looking better on PS3 even though it clearly more powerful.

VampiricDragon2661d ago

darkstalker dev said its more powerful

slavish32661d ago

i have never heard them say native resolution was 1080p they only said they support it! you got a link thats dated after e3 conference?

SilentNegotiator2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

"The native resolution for WiiU games will be 1080p"

Nope. They said it SUPPORTS 1080p. So does the Ps3/360....but are they all 1080p native? NOPE.

"darkstalker dev said its more powerful"

It might have helped if he hadn't contradicted himself 10 times during that interview.

SuperLupe2661d ago

I dont get all this hate for the Wii U. Pretty exciting to me and it will have all the superior versions of multiplats. Moreover Ninty have strong 1st party support so it will have its share of exclusives that will all look better than PS3/360 exclusives.

I cant believe people arent happy that they are getting an alternative to the 360/PS3, and a superior alternative that is since it'll be more powerful.

NYC_Gamer2661d ago

how can people be happy about hardware with no real solid info?

SuperLupe2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

Oh come on man, the footage they showed for Zelda for instance isnt in-game but is a preview of what the console can produce. That alone makes N4G's beloved PS3 exclusives look like PSX games.

EYEamNUMBER12661d ago

@NYC_Gamer then it would make sense to be disappointed in nintendo themselves for not showing any info on their new console but the people around here detest their new console already as if its actually been shown

im disappointed in nintendo for not showing anything about it im not disappointed in the wii u i can't be disappointed in something i know nothing about

Muletroid2661d ago

the tech demo for zelda looked nice but i expect and actual product to look even better

all i can think of is back on the GC when they showed that zelda tech demo twilight looked allot better in the end

TripleAAARating2661d ago

@SuperLupe
Come on man... Seriously?...

God of War 3 a year old game already showed the level of graphics presented in the Zelda footage, and we are not even sure that it was in game footage

nycredude2661d ago

"That alone makes N4G's beloved PS3 exclusives look like PSX games."

LOL you joking right? Wii fans are graphics whores now. THey spend years talking about graphics isn't important and the second a new console gets revealed with nothing but tech demoall of a sudden graphics is the bestest! WOW! can't make this stuff up. Wii U? LOL!

"I cant believe people arent happy that they are getting an alternative to the 360/PS3, and a superior alternative that is since it'll be more powerful."

Yeah the pc says already here, superior you say so what about nintendo's online system how will that stack up against live or psn, store support, features, community support ect.

"Moreover Ninty have strong 1st party support so it will have its share of exclusives that will all look better than PS3/360 exclusives."

Kinda a dumbass statements since not all ps3/exclusives are released yet and looks better, is subjective as hell dependant on the individual and their preferences design/art style ect.

So where were all you gamers, excited about a nintendo console when wii was out, nintendo hasn't been about gfx ever to my knowledge, they always are doing their own unique thing.

Do people really think nintendo games are going to be that different, because it's a more powerful system?

Better gfx, better physics, maybe better animation but it isn't going to that fundamentally different, i would be amazed if nintendo games finally have consistent voice acting. Nintendo is still lacking on certain things to me voice acting and story on alot of their games.

So since this a just a upgraded wii, will you nintendo fanboys preaching gameplay over graphics at the start of this gen finally concede that you can have both? Since you don't have to spin the consoles dated gfx.

Anyone who buys a wii u, for superior multiplatform games and not exclusive nintendo 1st party titles, deserves to be shot for stupidity.

ElementX2661d ago

I'm not going to let Nintendo off the hook, however there have been cases where footage/screenshots shown have been from PC versions of PS3/360 games.

NYC_Gamer2661d ago

they should have just waited to show off this console when had something solid
