Nintendo Used 360, PS3, PC Game Footage In Its Wii U Demo Reel

This morning, Nintendo showed off a highlight reel of third-party games supposedly running on its new Wii U console. They looked great. Turns out that footage wasn’t running on anything of the sort.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has told GameTrailers that the footage – of games like Ghost Recon and Darksiders II – was instead culled from the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the games.

He says the reason for this is that Nintendo is still “a year away from when the console will launch”.

You can catch the full interview in the clip above.
