It has recently been confirmed to me from my anonymous source, who has given The Gamer Scene rumours previously and has very strong ties with Nintendo, has confirmed that the Wii U will support 3D – and in 1080p too!
I'm not really surprised about the 3D part because I'm sure Nintendo could do something really creative with 3D. I'm more surprised about having 3D at 60 Frames per second.
who gives a crap about 3D... It was basically a way to make people go out and buy new TV's they didn't need... and now it's like a default feature for all TV's... You can barely find a new TV that isn't 3D, smart TV, with WiFi. 3D is a gimmick... It's pretty much tacked on garbage used to raise the price of movies, TV's, etc
Have you played games that have good 3D? 3D is awesome. Some console games are good in 3D but PC games do it way better. The 0 agrees on your comment show you should probably try it before being so judgmental about it. I see a lot of non 3D TV's btw. People don't need TV's in the first place. If people get a 3DTV it is because they want it. If you don't want it then don't get it.
@edgeofsins, that's the the thing I have tried it... I have my own 3D television for some time, and have watched movies and played games in 3D, and it adds nothing... Now ,like almost everyone I know that actually has 3D, It is barely used at all. And you don't see alot of new tvs coming out non-3D... Id say those are the older models that are still being sold...
It has no 3D at launch It has no 1080p games at launch It has no dual tablet controller support at launch I bet the rest Nintendo says will also be dumbed down, it won't have 60fps, when two tablet controllers are used it won't be a fixed 30fps but drop below, the online network won't work properly, basically its the Wii all over again. WiiU stands for WiiUpgrade. Slight evolution, no revolution. Check the image for more info!
Do I detect a hint of scepticism? Nah, I'm probably just reading too much into it. Smh.
Judging by this, you are a misinformed fanboy that needs to crawl into a dark hole and die, so you don't infect anyone else with your stupidity... And your name is Natsuck so I didn't expect anything rational to be in your comment.
Mr.Slaughter sir, can you go put him and the 16 others that agreed with him out of their misery lol Clearly this is a wiiu tag thread and he not only defiles the soil with his tainted mombo jumbo but ads more insult with the picture... * pitch forks * Tonight we burn their homes down!
Wait so did Assassin's Creed 3 go from 1080 to 720 without anyone knowing except you? 3d isn't necessary but Ubisoft did confirm that WiiU AC3 will be the only version to be in 1080p, and unless that AC3 got pushed back to next year it's releasing in october which means it will be in the launch window
@nutsack it has none of this at launch because it's incapable of it... WiiUpgrade is about right, What happens when real next gen consoles hit... then what...
If it's incapable of it then why has the console already been confirmed to do 1080p and 2 controllers at 30 FPS #Gapinyourlogic BTW people this is old news, Iwata already said WiiU would support 3DTVs and 3D he just said they wouldn't push it as a main feature of the console. Confirmed June 6... of last year. http://www.joystiq.com/2011... When the OTHER next gen consoles hit people will be disappointed when they aren't as powerful as expected. Calling it, this gen, will be like the 6th gen in terms of power with WiiU as the weakest of course but still being able to get games like PS2 was. Click the link before you disagree...
Every 3rd party game is 1080p and with better graphics/AI/Gameplay in some cases Razors edge has more levels and better animations and this is just on ports that cost less than 1 million dollars so get a grip kid this statement says 1080p in 3D meaning if you have a 3D tv that supports HD/3D than your good to go. Read the E6760 gpu as thats the gpu the wiiu is based off it has every feature that has and more ? NINTENGEN.COM has the specs link ? and it states eyefinity/HD3D/DX11/OpenGl4.1/ Compute shader 11.
That's means BS 3d not real 3d.. Lol ill pass. Byyyyy the easy i have a 50 inch Samsung 3d TV i bought when i bought kz3 looks great in 3d..
Neutrality at its finest /s.
It's the same kind of 3D that PS3 and 360 do... if WiiU's 3D is BS but it's the same as PS3 how is it BS? Or are you just trolling? Or is PS3 3D BS too? #Gapinyourlogic
ps3/360 can't Do HD3D look up Radeon E6760 specs thats what the wiiu can do but some of the specs have been beefed up.
confirmed to me by my anonymous source? This guy sounds like a douche. Pass until real info.
I trust this author and source 500%
really? well ask this source and author exactly WHICH 3dtv or projector can display 3d at 1080p and 60fps other than a few specialized computer monitors.....because THEY DON"T EXIST. EVERY 3dtv EVER sold is technologically limited to 24fps in 1080p 3d. 720p 3d runs at 60hz though. there are some extremely weird sony (only) 3dtvs that can run 3d in 1080i, but only super specialized sony 3d camcorders use that.
Load of shite, my toshiba runs 3d @ 1080p, although most 3d games don't run 3d @ 1080p, its usually 30fps @ 720p
I think the wii u would be a good system for it. Would fit well the 3d toons they use. The drop in resolution wouldn't have as big of a impact as AAA games.
"The new pieces of news that I have received, however, detail that the Wii U will support full 3D in 1080p and 60FPS – however, as I understand, the Wii U Gamepad will not have video streamed to it, but it can only be used as a controller." So Assassin's Creed 3 and Batman running at 1080p while using the controller is just a black magic trick from the game's developers.
I think you really missed the point of what was said. I did not know AC3 and Batman were both 3D games. Can you share a link to prove that those games are both in fact 3D games?
LOL FAKE!!!!!!!!!! exactly what hardware is nintendo gonna run 3d at 60fps and 1080p....because it doesn't exist!!!!!!! except for nvidia 3d vision computer monitors which are few and far between. that's right NO 3d tv can do it, and NO 3d projector can do it. so 0.2% of even the 3d displays out there can do it. does ANYONE research ANYTHING when they hear a rumor????? btw i heard wii u can play in native 4k 3d 120 fps.....you gonna publish an article about that?!?!?! wii u should be able to do 720p 3d 60hz, but that is already standard for ps3/360, and every 3d display can show that.
Dont bring in the Fake train just yet.
why not? prove me wrong on a SINGLE point.
Want a SINGLE point? James Martin works for me and is one of my best employees. He is highly trusted and I also know who the source is and how he attains the information.
@lunaluagua How you have four bubbles is beyond me.
mr poprock, you didn't counter one thing i said because it is all 100% factually correct, and the article is not. nothing else to say because your personality and interest in the truth speaks for itself. but it doesn't surprise me how things get beyond you at all.
What's there to counter in your comment exactly? You're making a bunch of baseless accusations about technology that is only rumored to even exist. And you have the writing comprehension of a twelve year old. So I don't have many reasons to take you all that seriously. Boo hoo I guess.
@archemides518, maybe it's like how 'The Hobbit' is being filmed at 48FPS. Or how PS3 can read up to 200GB blu-rays. Futureproof.
Its called a embedded GPU in the E6760 its called Compute Shader 11 thats what makes the wiiu do HD3D look it up thats the confirmed chip but its meant to of been beefed up quite a bit.
I just hope we don't move from HD era to 3D. I want 2K and 4K resolutions to be next.
Oh boy, it's another anonymous source. It's been a while since we heard a Wii U rumor...
every week we hear something. So many devs have the kit but we get mixed signals from some, lot of anonymous info, lot of technical ya-ti ya-ti. Just a few more weeks, and the curtains can be lifted.. yes we will have solid info. Then some nut will post on youtube how he is going to destroy a wiiu(seems always to have one of those).
I have no problem with that.
Not having 3D at launch is not a game breaker. Its the games that will come out that is important.
I sure hope this is true, that way it doesn't become obsolete when we finally move on to 3D. Looking forward to it.
Whilst I don't agree with 'all' the fanboy remarks regarding Nintendo I have to say that with the WiiU they have no one to blame but themselves due to the lack of information and detail released for the console itself which will be on shop shelves in just a few months time. If they weren't ready they should have waited until they were.. if they are confident why didn’t they give the big sell on the console itself?!?! Instead it feels more like they're selling us a concept!
3D is sooo overrated. Not just in Videogames but all forms of entertainment mediums. 3D TV's, Movie theatres etc. I couldn't careless about 3D, in fact I'm more against it because it is usually a feature I personally have no use for. Additionally the costs automatically is higher which sucks also. Stay away from 3D Nintendo. It's been your achilles heel for quite a while.
agreed. Think they should move us to VR ( ah yes the days of the holographic room from star trek)
