Wii U Can Do “1080p Without Breaking A Sweat”

Developer Two Tribes offered to answer questions – via Twitter – regarding Wii U’s version of Toki Tori 2. The developer revealed that its team has been working with the Wii U console for a few months, and its “coders found it easier than expected” to make Wii U games. Two Tribes thinks that the Wii U is ‘awesome’ and claims that it can display games at “1080p without breaking a sweat.”

    1. You haven’t heard this before, there isn’t really that very many games that can do 1080p, most even only come close to as doing 720p and 1080i, but not 1080p.

        1. “i” stands for interlaced. That means you only see half the image on the screen at any instant.

          “p” stands for progressive scan. That means you see the full image at any instant.

          By this explanation, “p” is always used for real HD formats.

  1. Cue the trolls taking shots at two-tribes as a non-credible source just because they don’t produce the “core games for real gamers” that they all masturbate to.XD

    But in all seriousness, it’s good to hear someone who has had a few months of experience with the system vouching for its capabilities.
    We get so much nay-saying from the no-lifer trolls around here that some positive tones in a news story is a welcome change from the cave-man-quality drivel being spouted by haters recently.

    1. That’s true to a point. Nintendo fans, especially longtime ones like myself, don’t usually feel that graphics are as important because so many fantastic and still-beloved games have been made with lower-quality graphics in past years; I don’t feel that the hours I spent enjoying Super Metroid were wasted because it wasn’t 1080p, for example. That being said, though, could a game as gorgeous and evocative as Kirby’s Epic Yarn have been made on a lower-powered system? More tools for the developers to experiment with are never a bad thing.

Gears 4 and Halo 5 shall be epic on xbox720. With kinect 2 support and smart glass, Nintendo and Sony will be jealous at our two exclusives. We also will have fable 4 with kinect 2 support. So what if the Wii U is more powerful than my 360 we have exclusive contempt for all COD games on 360. Won’t mind playing Zelda in 1080 P though, that Shigeru Miyamoto is a gaming genius. He is like gaming itself. Anyway enough praise we have Microsoft studios and rare ware to challenge your metroid creator.

  9. No matter how much certain trolls try they can’t hide the truth. The Wii U is a true next gen system and can handle 1080p with ease. This was confirmed a year ago. Just because every single game on the console isn’t in 1080p is not a knock against the console, complain to the devs for not taking full advantage of the hardware. Besides, launch titles rarely do.

    Certain trolls purpose is to place doubt in your mind about Wii U and make you think twice about buying it. It will never work. If advertised and priced properly, Nintendo won’t be able to keep that thing on store shelves this holiday. Leave luck to heaven.

  13. I hate to say this but Big Whup! PS3 and Xbox have been doing 1080p for some time. PC has been doing that resolution and much higher for years.

    Wii U is just this generation hardware with more memory. Capabilities of the Wii U isn’t that far beyond what we have today.

    Ness has so much anger! Why? From playing Smash Bros, he always seemed like such a pleasent lad…

    Mybe his PK Powers are infecting his brain? Why else would he continue to babble so incoherantly about a 120 year old Japanese game company? Maybe he’s secretly miffed about the lack of Earthbound games?

    …Though I do admit, Earthbound in 1080p sounds mighty fine!
