Wait A Minute

Yesterday in this interview (start at the 4:25 mark), Reggie Fils-Aime (President and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America) admitted that the "sizzle reel" of game footage during the Wii U presentation was from "360, PS3, and PC" versions of the games.


Seriously, how would people have responded if Microsoft or Sony had done this in advance of releasing a new console? It would have been the f-ing apocalypse. They would have been drawn and quartered.

And for good reason, too: not identifying the footage as coming from competitor's consoles is 100%, complete bullshit. That is totally ridiculous, and kind of imaginary world does Reggie Fils-Aime live in where this kind of garbage is acceptable?

Here's an amusing sidenote. I saw on several forums that people were complaining about the footage, saying it "still didn't look as good" as the 360 or PS3.
