Wii U launch titles will not look much different than the current-generation systems’ games because developers are not completely familiar with the Wii U hardware and are not using its full potential. According to The Gamer Scene, there are two multiplatform titles – that haven’t been revealed to the public – coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.

The games are “big third-party titles” – one is a driving game and the other is a first-person shooter. Compared to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the Wii U versions of the unannounced games will boast a higher texture resolution and will look much better.

“According to my source, whom I will keep anonymous, who has actually had play time with the Wii U, yes it is. I have spoken with him many times previously and he told me, and even showed me drawings, of the 3DS XL way before it was announced and Nintendo were still prototyping it a year ago (yes, so soon after launch as some of you may be surprised to hear).”

“At launch, of course, we won’t expect to see the best out of the system because developers can’t just get the max out of a system that they have had for little under 2 years; just look at the difference between Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (2007) and Uncharted 3 (2011). But the 2 titles that he has seen have been superb, he said, and they are both multiplatform games. The Wii U will boast a higher texture resolution that what we will see in these games compared to the PS3 and 360 versions, making it look much better.”

  1. My god, one would hope so. Expecting it not to look better than 6-8 year old tech…. Well that would be dumb.

          I really liked it, but it was a little lack luster, but if gaming’s taught us anything, sequels are often TONS better

        • The Battlefield 4 beta is going to be on all systems. PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

          As was the Battlefield 3 beta. This has already been confirmed. You get the BF4 beta when you pre-order the Limited Edition Medal of Honor: Warfighter game. LE is on all platforms.

  5. Meh, I’ll take it with a grain of salt seeing as I don’t expect any early multi-plats to show what the Wii-U can really do. A AAA-exclusive is needed to show off what the Wii-U can really do, whether from Nintendo or from a 3rd party developers.

  6. We already seen what Project cars can look like on Wii U so this is pretty awsome news and more of the reason as to why I am going to be getting wii u with PRE ORDER… It’s going to be 3 years into the systems life before we see the true Power of the Wii U and by that time every one is going to own one. The Power of Nintendo is real… there’s no doubting what they can do will do and already have done.

  8. That source sounds shady.

    “I know this guy, and he totally knew about the 3DS XL before it was cool…”

    Really? That’s how you establish your credibility? Not really much to go on.

    That aside, I wouldn’t naturally assume a game on a new console would look better than on 6 & 7 year old consoles. If it didn’t, it’d be laughable. But texture resolution alone isn’t a huge improvement. Textures right now are pretty high res for a lot of games; it’ll surely be an improvement, but definitely not “much better” I don’t think. Lighting, shaders, particle effects, and character models matter much, much more.

  9. That’s good to know. I’m guessing the racing game is Burnout and the FPS is Call of Duty. Can’t wait to get my hands on a black Wii U. Leave luck to heaven.
