There seems to be some controversy concerning the Wii U version of Black Ops 2, because it’s said to come in 1080p Full HD, which to us shows that Activision is taking this console seriously. Now while this might sound controversial to you, it’s the reaction from Xbox 360 and PS3 users that has our attention because they don’t seem too pleased.
We’re not trying to upset anyone here, but this doesn’t come as any surprise because it’s newer technology than the current-gen consoles. Okay, we’re not saying that the Wii U is next-gen tech, but on paper it has more power than the 360 and the PlayStation 3. However, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves and believe that Nintendo’s upcoming console is a much better system than what’s already out there because while the Wii U has 2GB of RAM only 1GB of it is usable because the other GIG is for the OS. And while the GPU is pretty decent, a few developers have said that the PS3 and the Xbox 360 GPUs are still a little ahead.
Back to the story, having Black Ops 2 running at 1080p should on paper mean that this will be the best version of the latest Call of Duty title according to Nintendo, but are they forgetting one thing, the PC. While console lovers will hate the thought the PC version is the better option when it comes to graphics.
We love in the video below how Rich Masucci shares his opinion on how the PS3 and Xbox 360 fans have been reacting to the news that the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 will be running at 1080p. He finds it surprising that they would be defending their systems when they’re 6 and 7 years old. His greatest point is when he discusses how he finds it strange how certain gamers want to see a system fail, where it’s clear that the more competition is much better for the gamer because we get better games from it.
On a final note, Nintendo will not waste their time and effort developing a new console that was not going to be more powerful than the current systems available. However, for all you PS3 and Xbox 360 fans out there you can feel safe in the knowledge that when their successors are released they will be even more powerful than the Wii U, but for now let’s embrace Nintendo’s latest console and hope it succeeds.
