Sitting at the Nintendo Press Conference, before the E3 Expo actually opened its doors, I exclaimed: "Wow, these games look just like Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles." I wasn't far off... In fact, the non-Nintendo titles shown during the press conference unveiling weren't running on Wii U hardware at all... Nope, they were actual Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions posing as Wii U titles.
Sony historically got dinged for the practice of hinting at gameplay for its pre-rendered PlayStation 3 footage back in 2005. How will the world treat Nintendo and its Third Parties?
It is sad that Nintendo resorted to smoke and mirrors to damage what was a very good unveiling. Next time we will have to take what they say with a grain of salt.
