Wii U graphics superiority, Black Ops 2 singled out

By Alan Ng - Nov 26, 2012

We told you not too long ago that we thought the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 looked better than the same game on Xbox 360 and PS3. That theory was obviously up for debate from both sides of console owners, but now Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime has made some very interesting comments indeed in a recent interview, claiming that all third party games will look better on the Wii U.

Not one to miss out on an opportunity to tout the Wii U’s capabilities ahead of other platforms, Reggie made the bold statements in a recent live link up during a CNN interview. Aside from stating that “third-party games look better on the Wii U”, he also singled out Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 as well, insisting that it is “dramatically better on Wii U, compared to Xbox 360 and PS3”.

Reggie was quick to correct the reporter, when she told him that the Wii U specs were ‘on par with Xbox 360 and PS3’ and asked him if he was worried that the Wii U would be a generation behind when the Sony PS4 and Xbox 720 arrive. Reggie hit back instantly by saying that the Wii U games are ‘much more graphically intensive’ than PS3 and Xbox 360, challenging the reporter to do a side by side comparison to see the differences.

Reggie also chimed in with a Wii U sales update too, adding that the system is ‘selling very well’, considering the current economic climate in the US with stocks low. After picking up a Wii U at launch yourself though, would you agree with him that all third party games, with specific mention to Black Ops 2 look better on the Wii U?

We expected a nice defense from Reggie as standard, but those are some pretty bold claims you have to agree. Black Ops 2 on the Wii U does look fantastic, but will developers be able to keep up the same standard when other titles arrive on all three platforms?

Reggie says graphics are better on Wii U than Xbox 360 and PS3, but what do you say? Give us your opinion on this below.
