Ubisoft designer and Rayman creator Michel Ancel claims the technology inside the Wii U GamePad is more advanced than what some may deem. Ancel says the new controller is very responsive, and he is intrigued by its capability of running pictures at 60 frames per second. Ancel thinks Nintendo’s competitors will need time to get their solutions to Wii U as responsive as the Wii U GamePad.
“And I think this is where Nintendo is really out in front of things. The technology inside the controller is quite a bit more advanced than what people might think. It’s really responsive. The response time is crazy, in fact, and I think the competitors will need some time to [get their solutions] this responsive.”
“It’s crazy because the game is running in full HD [on the television], we are streaming another picture on the GamePad screen, and it’s still 60 frames per second. And the latency on the controller is just 1/60 of a second, so it’s one frame late. It’s crazy, it’s so fast. It’s almost instant. That’s why it responds so well. So it can be used as a real game-design thing.”
Day 1 buy for me!
If only it was available
Wish I could say the same but I live in Ecuador, will have to wait for my next trip to the USA to get the console. Sucks.
I’ll be waiting for the bigger games to come out.
I was going to do the same, but my Wii stopped working. :( I’ll have to get the Wii U sooner now.
my wii broke this month too! and my cousins broke last month this is a conspiracy!
Mine broke in 2010!!!!!!!
Stop shoving money in it that might help…
Not sure if you’re trolling…
arent we all
That’s some deep shit…
not really im just being silly
Very good news! :)
Keep on picking any good Wii games you can get.
The Wii U is going to be incredible.
After zelda comes out for it…
Zelda is great, but it’s not the absolute pinnacle of quality games. There are some great games coming out much sooner (Aliens: Colonial Marines says hi).
I dont wanna kill aliens….
You can be aliens killing humans, at least in one mode.
Zelda will be phenominal but what will really make the Wii U unbeatable will be the new Smash Bros, Metroid HD, Starfox HD, F-Zero HD, and Miyamoto’s new game.
You could have say all nintendo ip it would have saved you time
so th wii u isn’t good cause there is no zelda. ok sir whatever you say
i agree it is very responsive, i played it today at Nintendo World NYC and the touch screen to tv repsonse was 1:1 (rayman legends demo) the gyroscope worked well, the controller was very confomatable to hold and was suprisingly light but a good weight (not so light that it is a feather but not so heavy that it feels like your going to drop it). Very Impressed and cant wait to buy
How are the buttons on top (triggers/ bumpers, L2 R2 ZL ZR?)
they were place comfortability where you place your index fingers i relive. don’t worry it feels natural IMO as long as you don’t have too many issues with Nintendo controllers like the classic controller you should be fine. i think all the buttons felt great and were comfortable.
Hey Ubisoft, are your games running in 1080p?
Hey Aeolus, are you on a site that caters to your insterests? no? then kindoly gtfo
Plus it’s over 9000!
Hey Stratisfire, are you making a bigoted comment to someone who only asked a question?
Guess you’re new here. Or you’re a anti-Nintendo fanboy like Aeolus.
You really need to learn how to spell, you stupid fucking idiot.
Stop stalling and just answer the question.
And you still didn’t answer the question.Wow……
fail clown you are.
gg stratisfire…pwnage at its finest
What is wrong with you lot?
Aeolus makes a perfectly fine comment and you go and attack him for it.
I highly doubt he’s ever made a perfectly fine comment in his lifetime
I highly doubt you’ve ever been laid in your lifetime.
The irony/hypocrisy of you saying that…
Lol, I fully agree….
Hypocrisy? I’ve probably had more pussy than you’ve been within a 5 feet radius in.
Including your own mother.
Very mature, Aeolus, exactly what we would expect from someone who hates Nintendo yet spend their time on a Nintendo website. If you really got pussy, you wouldn’t spend your time here, unless you just get hoes and sluts.
What? In your dreams? Who hasn’t?
Is that what you think about,people getting laid?
Why the fuck are you sucking Aeorta’s dick? Get the fuck out and fix me a BBQ, you fucking Klansman!
From Aeolus’s later comments I can tell that he may not be the best person to defend. (Going from a rational question regarding the graphical intensity of the games in relation to gamepad delay times to “you have never been laid jokes”)
But I didn’t think that the community could get so abusive towards someone new to the website and i don’t think I will comment here again thank you for showing me what this websites community has to offer new visitors.
P.S calling me a klansman is very offensive and rather unjust. I gave no indication of racism within any of my posts in my short time on this website. I would hope no children come across this website looking for Nintendo news as it is filled with some of the worst language I have ever seen on the Internet.
You’re still sucking Aeoulus’ dick. Shut up, Meg’s boyfriend.
When I reply with rational and thought out comments explaining my acknowledgement of the error of my ways. I would expect you to at least understand that I have noted Aeolus later comments and have regretted my decision to defend him. I would rather you did not reply with yet more vulgarity and insults that do not serve any purpose.
I sincerely apologize on behalf of the people here who are attacking you, especially TheOriginalUNation. It’s a shame there are people who reply rationally, only to be harassed themselves by the lot on this site. This is why I left, too many children insulting one another. I doubt they may be children, but they certainly act like it.
There are many sites other than this that have a better community than this place. It’s a shame there are no moderators, otherwise most of these people would have been banned. I’d recommend sites like GoNintendo that actually mods people and most of them are true Nintendo fans – as in they actually criticize the company when the company deserves criticism.
I’d also recommend NeoGaf, but I do warn you that some of the people there act the same way they do here.
Sometimes we get carried away,some of us think that all people who don’t insult aeolus are fanboys.If your new then sorry about this,but until aeolus leaves,people will have war here.And I think he is only here because we reply.
there are like, 5 bad/vocal posters here
don’t let them ruin it for you
That’s too much; especially since they’re the most active in the entire site.
Welcome to the internet.
Yeah man. Please don’t let it bother you. Even though Aeolus has never personally attacked me, I still think he is among one of the most vulgar on the site along with a few others. The best thing to do is just ignore it and get the news when needed and comment if you feel free to do so. I won’t attack you, I promise. I’m a nice guy. :-) And my apologies for your first time here not being the most pleasant.
Aeolus comes here to do nothing but disparage Nintendo, patronize and speak down to people who enjoy Nintendo games, Make fun of anyone who supports Nintendo, and does so with arrogant, factless comments.
He feels like he knows everything, when he knows shit. Wii have to listen to his boring, ignorant comments several times a day.
You can’t read between the lines until you’ve heard the neverending bullshit that comes out of his pie-hole.
WHAT HE ATTACK US ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!
running 1080p takes a lot of power even watching a video in 1080p takes a lot of power
Rayman iss confirmed in 1080p im still have not prof about zombiu but some sites have say it is
Hey its Aeolus the prolapse !
I duno, but i found the list of people who care, check it out.
People who care:
And the core market.
Funny, most people who buy video games don’t look at what resolution it runs at.
Speak for yourself.
Shut up, Meg.
Ok then, go to your average PS3/360 owner (Not someone who keeps up with gaming news; they’re a minority) and ask them if they know most PS3/360 games aren’t even in native 720p, let alone 1080p. I can tell you they’ll be shocked to hear that.
failing life Sony drone.
who else feels this is a conspiracy. my wii broke just this month and my cousins wii broke too last month. somethings happening i think nintendo planned this
Mine is fine and I bought it at Launch…
mines works fine excpet for the old drive which went bad not too long ago so i replaced it and its cool again.
My drive is going bad, Brawl won’t be read.
is that the only game where that happens? it could just be brawl. brawl uses a dual layer disc which tends to have read issues happen more easily then a regular disc. anyway replacing the wii dvd drive was easy and costed around $40, all you need is a triwing screwdriver and the ifixit wii drive replacement manual, it takes about 10 min too do it. you could also replace the laser lens which is cheaper but more difficult to replace and might not fix the problem since if the drive is bad then a new lens wont help.
Odds are, Xenoblade will have trouble as well then.
I’ve had mine since launch, and it’s finally dying. I’m holding out for WiiU rather than repair or replace my Wii.
This is why I use a USB loader so I can play my games off a hard drive. I have had mine since launch and I have never had my laser go bad. And it is a lot more convenient when you want to play a different game. No more getting off the bed/couch to change a disc.. and. the load times are drastically decreased for the games as well, especially the dual layered discs.
Im using mine right now to play paper mario, had it for 4 years
mine is flawless
also i leave it on for hours because i am just to lazy to reboot my game still works perfect
Mine works perfect. Still as good as it was on day 1.
That’s exactly what I think Microsoft did w/ the original Xbox. As soon as 360 rolled around, my original Xbox didn’t read as well anymore.
man i wish i had like 5 fun games to tide me over for a month
i wish one of them was Pandora’s Tower >=(
im hoping for an open world adventure game, zelda would be pefect obviously
oh you meant for now…lol have you played skyward sword? or dragon quest swords?
I’ve 100%’d normal and Hero Mode in Skyward Sword. Haven’t played a DQ game ever though.
If you have an Xbox or PS3 i recommenced borderlands2 amazing game.
Waiting to play that with a friend. :x
^Agreed. I love borderlands/2 but it’s only at it’s best when you’ve got friends to play with.
A great game to play to pass the time till Wii U is out is Pokemon Black2/White2. I have Black 2. I have put 72 hours into the game and am still not at the Pokemon League lol. Got 8 badges but there is alot to do in it.
The last Pokemon game I completed was Gold. Can’t really get back into it. =/
Xenoblade? You done building Colony 6??
I have DKR, METROID TRYLOGY, OTHER M, SMG2, TLS, FIRE EMBLEM, Skyward… that just for Wii
3DS I have Starfox, 4 Professor Layton games, Zelda Track Spirits, Pokemon Conquest, Emerald, NSMB2… so many!!
I’ve 100%’d all those Wii games. I have like, >50 Wii games, all 100%’d. I play video games a LOT, haha.
theres gotta be somethin you havent played
La Mulana is a super fun game. At least 40 hours worth. It’s a Mario-Link-Indiana Jones-Mega Man type of game. Lots of adventure, platforming, defeating enemies, a dude with a whip and plenty of traps.
what about xenoblade and monster hunter?
there is literally nothing left that on the Wii for me to play that i’m interested it
i hope Pokemon black 2 is enough for me (probably not tho – _ -)
I knew it, the Wii-U wont leave me disappointed. Come on November!
Most definitely looking forward to the Wii U demo station this coming wednesday.. AND November 18
Can’t wait to blame the controller 1/60th of a second lag time for my lack of video game skills.
Lmao, you know we’ll all do this at some point or another.
“My gamepad was lagging! I think it’s defective!…”
:D when really, we need to tone up our skills.
Truer words from the game designer at Ubisoft. I’m already sold at the price of Wii U. The graphics of Wii U… the fluid play control of Wii U… the social gaming network ability of Wii U… the entertainment and sports with real-time stats and info of Wii U… and the overall fun of Wii U. It’s official… it’s Nintendo. It does everything.
WO!!!! wo, wo, wo. Careful what you say, Sony might sue you ;)
I bet The Regginator is laughin’ his butt off after my previous comment.
I just read somewhere that Rayman Legends has been delayed to 2013.
Ur a little late
Got a chance to try it out at Game City Vienna yesterday… so awesome, i don’t regret preordering this console at all and am soooo looking forward to it.. :)
It’s the next big innovation in gaming. People will understand once they get their hands on it. I can’t wait to get mine. Leave luck to heaven.
1 more month to go =3
Can’t wait to get my hands on the Wii U at the mid-night launch

Reblogged this on Nintendo Wire.
Just read that interview in my Nintendo Power issue.
Latency of 1/60 second pretty much means no latency at all.
Ya know, I would LOVE to Pre-Order the Wii U if everyone who didn’t even want one buy it out!
