A video showcasing the power of the WiiU
is the controller always wired? or is it just for the show floor?
Well if you mean from the system, yes, from the presentation anyway.
well they gotta keep em on for hours non stop at E3 so they wire them to the consoles
I think they're more concerned with people stealing them lol
that too knowing people i wouldn't doubt someone at E3 trying to pocket something they aren't supposed to
it looks great. im glad nintendo is finally getting up to speed. i really like that the controller can add extra functionality for games such as menus and what not instead of pausing and viewing items, maps, weapons, etc...i expect it to be a lot smoother viewing those features straight from the controller without having to break the immersion or flow of the game. i could definitely see some cool integration being worked into the controller and game as time goes on. im excited to see the progression of the wii U and the potential that it has.
i would love fps huds and maps down there and more of an open view of the game, so as to make it more realistic
Yeah, it makes your television kinda turn into a giant DS with all of your touchscreen controls in your hand and your tv working as the top screen would on your DS.... This will probably work out well, especially for all the first party stuff.... Nintendo usually knows what they're doing.
I like that you can go to the bathroom without interrupting your playing session LOL..
hahahaha yah, thats probably the most defining feature for me.
What is really cool is when they start using augmented reality in between the tv and the controller. You'll see.
Its a tech demo but just look at does floor reflections,amazing!
The machine seems to have more than enough power behind it. Cant wait for a Metroid game in HD, think I'll die happy that day
Metroid, Zelda, Starfox, F-Zero are some games that would benefit A LOT with a powerful console. I would take these games over Uncharted any day (if they looked as good as uncharted)
My dream came true now I can enjoy nintendo Games in HD
As I expected,it's just an in-game scene,not actual gameplay,that is still pretty impressive and it wont be much different for the game itself,I bet the gameplay could get to the same level of details too,seeing Zelda in HD just gets my mouth drooling to see some more ! Damn Nintendo,they should have had some game booths or gameplay videos for upcoming Wii-U games...this situation really sucks major balls !
They have booths, However, I severely doubt it will look like this in game, when does a consoles actual games live up to its tech demo?
umm i disagree im hoping they will. just like when people doubted killzone 2 was going to look so good remember?
I look forward to playing an hd zelda game in 2014 with the release of the wiiu2. Nintendo: "hardware sales mmmmmm yummy yummy!" "AAA titles/franchises, eh, whenever we get around to it"
If that's running at 1080p60 im getting a Wii^u
looks sick ill take some of that 1080p zelda : )
never really cared for 1080 p as i cant tell a difference between 1080 p and 720 or even 480, at least not much but ill still get wii u
if you have a 52' inch tv ( like i do ) 1080 will make a difference, but your eyes will get used to it.
omg i was right this is live and its just a tech demo graphics are gonna be insane,
this is prob shamefull linking to a article i poster... but http://n4g.com/news/780703/... SS looks better then the tech demo, not poly count wise, but artistically.
yeah but its just a tech demo they are using the same art style as twilight princess. im sure nintendo would make it look even better was this a full on zelda game. they alwasy do
i would buy the wiiu just to play a zelda game with those graphics. let alone all the other great nintendo exclusives and if the new system is going to get more third party suppoort is should be a very welcome addition to my collection
The controller looks uncomfortable to handle, but im a huge Zelda fan.
make that too huge zelda fans haha
GUYS it's just a tech demo do you really think the graphics will look that good? Tech demos always look far superior to the actual games Does the new UE3 tech demo have anythig like that real time in any game nope dnt think so..... Wii-U is only running on a Tri Core and R700 it's decent not great......
lets just hope nintendo doesnt pull a Zelda Space World
