Nintendo: Wii U demonstration used PS3 and Xbox 360 footage

Posted on Wednesday, June 08 2011 @ 19:19:46 CEST by

Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed to GameTrailers that some of the footage played during the Wii U demonstration actually came from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. Reggie claims showing off the new controller was more important than showing off actual Wii U footage, but we find it a little strange that a company uses current-gen consoles to demonstrate the graphics capabilities of its next-gen product.
Reggie later said that the footage was necessary in order to demonstrate what the system can do. "We're talking a year away from when the system's going to launch," he said.

Speaking to GameTrailers, Reggie started off by talking about how its more hardcore userbase had been left in the cold. "There has been some fantastic content that has not come to our platform," he said, "third-party developers have told us that the reason they couldn't bring it to our platform was the horsepower of the machine."
