    Waste of time, funds, and resources.

    I know I’m sounding like a wet blanket here, but what’s the point? Let’s not get into the really, REALLY bad port of Black Ops, MW3, or Reflex Edition.

    I just don’t see this working out at all. Play this on the PC, 360 or the (dohoho)PS3, the way it was meant to be.

    I will say, the good news for this is the fact Nintendo is branching out and trying new markets.

    Assassin’s Creed 3, that new Zombie game, some exclusive “Battlefield” title, and a few others. Not to shabby a start, but I don’t see the Wii U making a strong presence until about 6+ months of its release.

      What’s the point? It proves that the Wii U can push more than 2.3 Million pixels at 60FPS (1080p +854x480p) compared to the PS3 which ran Black Ops 1 at 960×544 (~500,000 Pixels at 60FPS) ;BTW that’s the resolution of the PSVita from a console that LAUNCHED AT 500/600$

      And if you have a 1080p , everything on your PS3 and 360 are getting upscaled from low sub HD(No CoD game is 1280×720 on EITHER console)

      The difference? Well here’s WC3 upscaled to 1080p from PSVita resolution and native 1080p
      It’s a blurry artifact filled, low resolution mess. Where as the native version is clear and full of detail completely missing from the low resolution upscale. Even a 9 year old game can show the difference.

      Pixel Pushing power MATTERS. If it didn’t, two PC GPUs of the same model range facing off against one another at 2560×1600 and one card couldn’t do it well and the other could. Wouldn’t matter. It wouldn’t mean that the one that can handle 1600P is the more powerful card.

      So the fact that the Wii U can do what the PS3 could do @8 times the resolution with likelier higher quality assets @60FPS shows that it is more powerful.

    It would be better to discuss this on the forums, but they have been down for almost half a month now, with no signs of them ever coming back. Whoever you have doing these “upgrades” needs to be fired. I again offer my services free of charge.

    Finally cod series move on from the aging Wii console.

  • lMattW

    The new CT bots look like a big improvement.

  • Snipey

    I want to get some cross platform play so 360 owners can wreck wii players lol, did you see the guys skills playing with that horrid wii u remote? No support killstreaks for you buddy

  • Crumeo

    Wow graphics are definitely worse than on PS3/x360. You see that muzzle flash animation? barely better than standard Wii. Disappointing, I was hoping for some honest to goodness competition from Nintendo. Wii U will be left in the dust in about a year.

      THIS VIDEO WAS A LOW QUALITY DEMO, THE FINAL PRODUCT WILL RUN ON 1080P AND WILL LOOK BETTER THAN ON PS360 ACCORDING TO TREYARCH AND NINTENDO shit fucking caps, anyway I honestly think wiiu version will crush ps360

      • Kevin Anthony Seepersad

        and if you play on the gamepad… clean movement because evrything is smushed onto the gamepad… i love this but i already preordered it on my ps3… but im still going to get a wii u in the future 😀 also to the guy who said it was terrible graphics.. the camera who recorded the DEMO was the bad quality…

    • Nicholas Perry

      The video quality was HORRIBLE. It was moving at like 20FPS. Didn’t you see all that judder or are you blind?

    Will this work on a regular wii system?
