Don't Play Wii U Games Through the Xbox One, the lag is Pretty bad

The Xbox One can run other game systems through it via HDMI. However, that might not be a good idea, as the lag running Super Mario 3D World through the Xbox One is pretty bad.

drsfinest721770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

Not sure if trolling..... .

@ at below.. he's stating the obvious? He's obviously trolling by saying Xbox off at the end of the comment. So shut up please.

.... or stating the obvious

GentlemenRUs1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

That's nice telling someone to shut up... You always think someone is trolling don't you?

I think you should leave other people alone...

BALLBAGS1770d ago

sheesus... im sure he was just 'joking' and not trolling..

why is everyone on here so uptight and jumping on anyone for anything no matter how tiny for quickness to call somebody else a fanboy?

BelkingOfSony1770d ago

oh wow, very 'mature' telling people to shut up, quite obvious why you only have two bubbles.

UltimateMaster1770d ago

It's the same for the PS4.
Hell, there's less lag with Remote Play the Vita than there is with the Xbox One.

yeah the device can suppot any device which have hdmi support but this is what expected ,xb1 is not made for doing such heavy things. as i'am having both new consoles and aslo tried to so it by myself, on the home screen every thing works quite good and every command working correctly and i first tested lego marvels which also played normal but when i played killzone ,it just gone mad ,i saw many many lags but it still proves the device is capble of some sort of thing but its not a supercomputer can can get every thing correct so its kind of bad idea to connect consoles to xb1 ,yeah my was the only just an experiment i never intended to play on it connected to xb1 ,xb1 hdmi supporting is made for devices which the xb1 can handle smmothly ,yeah it never stops you but warns you and i think its a good thing xb1 is better to support set top bx like devices and also some other shitty electronics with hdmi ,it better to play games on their respective consoles.

XboxPS1770d ago

For everybody saying that wrong:
I have the console and It's "Xbox,turn off".

Well obviously.. lol HDMI in was made for the cable box where lag won't make a difference

SonyKong641770d ago

that's why cable boxes had hdmi inputs several years after last gens launch..

Wii U has more 1080p games than the xbox one

Gabenbrah1770d ago

The Wii U has more 1080p 60 FPS games than both consoles.

Nabbic1770d ago

They're also rather graphically simplistic. Of course all consoles are capable of 1080p/60FPS, but try running Killzone or Forza on the WiiU and it'll not be able to offer the same framerate or resolution without reducing the graphical quality.

imXify1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

I'm sure that's not the case. While player thought CoD was running in native 1080p, it actually ran at 880x720. Mario 3D World runs at 720p, AC runs at 720p, Pikmin 720p runs at 720p.

I don't care about the resolution but the graphic card ain't good enough for that. The borderline for 1080-60fps gaming is a Radeon 7970m / 7870 / R9 270X and the PS4 runs a modified version of one of those graphics card.

"The borderline for 1080-60fps gaming is a Radeon 7970m / 7870 / R9 270X"


You know this only applies for PC right? Also the ps3 and 360 graphic cards dont even come close to this and they can do 1080p-60fps.

Neonridr1770d ago

imXify - the PS4 uses a modified 7850, not 7870. I have a 7870 and it does way more in terms of TFLOPS than what the PS4 does.

PrimeGrime1770d ago

I can confirm games that run 720p on my Wii U. Some of the game cases even tell you which games are upscaled to 1080p. Quite a few Wii U games are just upscaled to 1080p and aren't actually native.

Really not a big deal though..

Sure 1080p obviously looks a bit better but if the game looks great and plays great it won't make a huge difference whether it's in 720p or 1080p at least not to me unless you sit right in front of your TV.

Fact of the matter though most Wii U games are upscaled from 720p to 1080p not that other systems don't do this but its just what it is right now. Not saying there aren't native 1080p games on the Wii U but is that saying much for any system really when the PS3 and Xbox 360 had native 1080p games also? Another thing is most the native 1080p games are not running at 60fps but 30fps on Wii U and if they are its because as I said they are upscaled, not native.

MH3U is native 1080p but is 30fps.

Some of the upscaled games would be these -

Super Mario 3D World is 720p.

Super Mario Bro's. U is 720p.

Nintendo Land is 720p.

Wonderful 101 is 720p.

Sonic Lost World is 720p.

Pikmin 3 is 720p.

Point being the Wii U has just as many 720p games as any other system currently and considering the Wii U has been out a year now, knowing it has a few more native 1080p games, most of which aren't even out yet till next year, no surprise it has more than the Xbox One which hasn't even been out a full month.

In the PS4's case I wouldn't say the Wii U has more maybe about the same as the PS4 and that also has not been out long either. Not that I am defending the PS4 or the Xbox One as I have yet to purchase either one of the two.

When the Wii U launched it barely had any games either let alone a bunch that ran at native 1080p. Did people forget that?

Did people also forget Nintendo has never been about pushing graphics anyway, even they have been quoted saying this themselves. I really don't understand why you guys feel the need to care so much now that they finally made an HD console.

Just a little irritating seeing so many Nintendo fans turn into the same stupid fans that were on any other HD system before constantly bragging now. All I heard on the Wii from Nintendo fans was graphics don't matter, HD doesn't matter, it is all gameplay and now that the Wii U has been out all I hear is the opposite nothing but resolutions and graphics its pathetic.

Proves it doesn't matter which system people support there are always the same group of stupid people that give sensible fans a bad name.

Wouldn't dream of setting up my systems using the HDMI in feature of the Xbox One anyway. Probably my age showing, but my electricity bill is high enough already.

Bathyj1770d ago

I dont know why you would want 2 consoles running to play one.

Gabenbrah1770d ago

I've tried the HDMI In with my Wii U, it wasn't too bad, definitely playable, but a tad laggy.

JackISbacK1770d ago

yeah same herre i tried both devices ,even tried my xb360 ,itt was'nt bad and was playable but distroyed the experience but i'am glad xb1 is till capable of may things ,who knows therre can be some big surpices in future.
