President of Nintendo of America has had to 'fess' up to using misleading footage of games such as Ghost Recon: Future Soldier to illustrate the HD capabilities of what he insisted on calling the 'new controller': the Wii U.
During a post-press conference in which, Reggie tellingly points out to host, Geoff Keighley, "You didn't pay me, like Hulk Hogan, to come here and break news..." he broke the news.
Asked about footage of Darksiders II
and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
, "That was footage from Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of those cases, right?" Reggie admitted:
"Absolutely," before trying to clarify, "Because we're talking a year away from when this system's going to launch."
Apparently, however, the Wii U will display "Absolutely" as well as the PS3 and Xbox 360. "In terms of how good it looks it's going to be driven by what the individual developers do. It's going to be 1080p, it's going to be high definition," said Reggie.
Almost makes you yearn for good, honest show displays such as Kinect's Milo and Kate.Source: Gametrailers at about 4minutes and 36 seconds.
