Graphics technology company Umbra Software is an official middleware tools provider with Nintendo for the Wii U console. The company has announced that a customized version of Umbra’s latest rendering optimization middleware is available for evaluations for licensed Wii U developers. Wii U’s version of Mass Effect 3, for example, is a title that uses Umbra’s rendering optimization.
slow news day… this was mentioned several WEEKS ago!!!!
Too bad this page is subject to trolling. Oh well, at least we know who the unemployed people are.
This is great. Adding this to my list of 3rd Party Support.
well, i personally thought this was a no-brainer lol. i mean a TON of games use umbra. and what happened to the rating system?
Don’t know. Maybe Sickr is improving it.
sickr should change this blogsite as soon as possible
To what, gay porn? If you don’t like it, then stop visiting.
Why dont you leave?I like to be updated and comment my opinions!
i liked it tbh. i dont think it needed to be changed.
omg thats epic w000t it supports square enix and guild wars 2
Never heard of them. I hope their good.
you never heard of them? where have you been?
I dont obsess about graphics companies.
clearly a Nintendo fanboy then. Nintendo and retro dographics too… whats your point?
How does that make you a nintendo fanboy? WTF!
Typical comment of not caring about graphics, dumbass.
I care about graphics i just dont obsess about them like graphic whores such as yourself.
No one was obsessing, just making comments about it. You feel the need to cry like a little girl because you know how poor the graphics are. I love Nintendo, but I won’t make excuses for them. Fanboys, like yourself, never learn that.
a casual gamer that doesnt care if Nintendo churn out 8 bit crap… get with the times!
crap graphics/specs = LACK of third party support
Here we go again with the graphics argument…go be a graphics whore elsewhere
funny you say that….when all nintendo fans have been doing recently is comparing visuals like AC3 to the ps and 360 versions…
Well that’s funny – the only thing I’ve seen Nintendo fans have been doing recently was rage at Square Enix (rightly so…) for getting everyone’s hopes up for nothing with The World Ends with You. Just because there was one or two articles on here about ACIII graphics doesn’t mean everyone’s obsessed. I for one, am more interested in seeing how the Gamepad will enhance that game.
Only to denounce claims that the Wii U isn’t next gen like Sony and Microsoft fans try and say.
Here we go again with the fangirls. Going to cry about crap specs, go back to crying to your mother.
That’s why devs are all over the vita and that’s why they loved the GameCube.
i think they work with bungie in halo and with arenaNet for guild wars 2.
also Alan wake
Wii U mad?
You are the reason people hate us.
Wii U sad?
like your mom?
correct she’s gay with your mum!
good good let the hate flow
slow news day… this was mentioned several WEEKS ago!!
That’s excellent news. I wonder who else is on board? Leave luck to heaven.
That’s great!…and I don’t know who that is…
Doesn’t matter who it is. Another supporter is good.
Even if it was announced weeks ago.
This is the second middle ware company I have heard about. Also the one I heard that checks your code for errors is another great company. Here is hoping the Wii U is a seven year to even eight year games machine. This am saying because third parties are on board like a beast.
Someone care to educate me? With specs and everything?
CPU, GPU, and RAM- search those up first. Learn your hard drive basics first.
The electronic and hardwired software components of a system that make a machine run. E.g your Brain and the heart. The heart is your CPU-pump, while hour brain is the CPU-GPU.
wiius gpu and cpu are weak
Your xbox/ zune / windows phone-dumb glass / Kinect are weak. Plus they are run by matrilineal roman empire girlfriendish men.
Wii U GPU and CPU can run both the ps3 and xbox at the same dam time. In case of the xbox it won’t even RROD when the Wii U is running it lol.
“In case of the xbox it won’t even RROD when the Wii U is running it lol.”
I actually laughed at that. Good one :)
Damn. Nice one.
thanks. You’re explanation proves invalid, but those are your opinions.
Ik the cpu, gpu, and ram. I wanted to know what was the power of software.
Cool, Imagine Metroid with it.
* runs to laptop to watch Zelda 2011 Wii U demo * ah! you my friend are wise.
Now this is unreal (no pun intended). I’m glad that Umbra software is an official Wii U partner. I’ll look forward to their rendering optimization on Mass Effect 3 for the U.
Not a fan of Cliffy B. eh?
* Facepalm* at you facepalming lol.
How many times i must say that?THE WIIU IS WEAKER CONSOLE AND ITS NOT A NEXT GENERATION CONSOLE AND IF YOU DONT AGGREE THEN PROVE IT TO ME
Roy’s boyfriend… give it a rest will ya? It’s already getting too freaking old saying your same bullshit! The Wii U is a powerful console and has bigger RAM than your inferior XBox 360. Nintendo’s new console is next generation. Google Wii U and see it for yourself. From now on, I’m ignoring your dumb ass, Siegfried von Scrotum. Good day sir.
Developers announced that and you cant hide it anymore!
Who announced it… that loser who used to work for Vigil Games for Darksiders II? Your argument with me is already invalid. Good day sir.
stop saying good day sir… you’re not willy wonka… willy wanker!
Screw you troll!!!!
why assasins creed for wiiu version will have the SAME graphics as ps3/360 and same with sega all racing tranformed?
AC3 was confirmed to be the definitive console version on ps3.
makes none sense
That link you’ve posted was nothing but an April Fool’s hoax, Mr. von Scrotum. Here’s real proof–
“why assasins creed for wiiu version will have the SAME graphics as ps3/360 and same with sega all racing tranformed?”
Them next gen xbox360 graphics is amazing.
You’re not worth the effort since you’re determined to not believe any evidence brought forth.
You’re like a Specs Zealot; nothing other than what your PC-race masters have taught you is good enough.
It’s easier to just laugh at how wrong you are and keep letting you convince yourself that the Wii U isn’t worth getting.
At least by letting you believe that, we’ll be keeping your stupid ass OUT OF THE WII U SYSTEM’S COMMUNITY, because you won’t be getting one.
So, yeah, congratulations! You’re no longer relevant! Think what you want, hate what you want!
The rest of us are going to enjoy our time playing games on the Wii U while you waste your pathetic little life here, trolling the few who haven’t yet saved the money for one until they finally do purchase it.
You’re gonna be stuck in an endless cycle of trolling dumb-assery while the rest of us get our game on.
Enjoy that, you elitist wuss.:P
How the HELL would you know?
You say that wii is a 6th generation.Really?Then why the wii version had splinter cell the sixth generation?
haha no anwers,wii was a gimmick gamecube console
Why should anyone take the time and effort to find link and quotes to make your argument fall flat? I know how trolls like you work. When you’re eventually made to look like a fool, you’ll move on to some other topic to bash Nintendo with. So it’s pointless. If you refuse to educate yourself…enjoy staying in the darkness of your closed mind
that guy has made a point,wii u is a weak console
Last week Eurogamer reported (or rather, deliberately mislead) on Wii U’s graphical capabilities. It said that Wii U graphics were “on par” with PlayStation 3, however, it turned out that Sonic Racing developer Sumo Digital was talking about graphics in the game, and not for the system. Now it turns out that even that wasn’t actually true — according to Sumo, the Wii U version of the game will actually look better in some areas.
“The Wii U has way more memory, so we can take advantage of that with less compression on elements and textures, so it will look all lovely and shiny,” said Steve Lycett from Sumo Digital.
Technically, this means that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will look better on the Wii U, at least when it comes to texture resolution. The rumored Wii U specs indicate that the console has 1.5 GB of main system memory, which is about 3 times more than the PS3 and Xbox 360.
You dont need to prove it to the trolls. They go on about the same shit every post. Wii u will be awesome. I know it, you know it, f@#k the trolls!
That’s true, gamer. Haters wanna hate… let ’em.
Sega has great relationship with Nintendo so i can trust them!wow wiiU 3 times more powerfull than ps3 meens that the console will be a beast
but satoru iwata confirmed that the wiiU will be 50% more powerfull and not 3 times.i am confused
The good news is we’re two weeks away from Iwata-san lifting the Non-Disclosure Agreement while The Regginator make an announcement in NYC.
i am gonna buy for sure the U.I HAVE already money at the bank saved for it.WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIU GO!

haha sega is a failure company and they dont know what they are talking about.The wiiu is weaker and if you’r waiting for a starfox game for wiiu then keep wt-dreaming HAHAHA.starfox is already a porn-furry game
shitendo is making broken promises like sega now last,,,,,,
Still cant break the Nintendo fanbase up with your bullshit, stop trying U bitch!
Very good news. Very very good news. Optimizing polygon counts is key.
Reblogged this on Gigable – Tech Blog.
Now I know there’s more to a console, but we already know the WiiU’s multicore with 8 GB of RAM.
In comparison, the PS3 has 512 MB (256+256). And the PS3 put out the amazing Uncharted 3.
Imagine what the WiiU can do?
Wii U is not 8GB RAM, don’t spread utter bullshit.
