During an interview which is sure to cause some controversy Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said that third-party games actually look dramatically better on Wii U. Despite numerous publication saying that third-party games have noticeable frame-rate issues and don’t appear to be any better visually on Wii U, Reggie’s comments come off as a little strange.
“Well first off, I have to correct you. The specs are quite different from the competitor systems. Much more graphically intensive. If you do a side-by-side comparison, you would actually see that third-party games like Call of Duty look dramatically better on our system. And then in terms of what competition’s going to do in the future, we’ll see. We know that based on our own development, this two-screen gaming experience really is the next innovation that consumers are gravitating to. It’s selling extremely well here in the Americas. Already stocks are quite low in the marketplace, we’re rapidly replenishing. And so for us, certainly consumers are deciding that the innovation is well worth their investment.”
