Those Wii U games looked great, but…

Some of them weren’t from the Wii at all. Nintendo has admitted that in the highlight reel for what the Wii U game could do, they used some footage from PlayStation and Xbox games. Whoops. Nintendo says that when the Wii U games come out, they will look at least as good as the PlayStation and Xbox games, since they’ll be in 1080p resolution. So that makes it…okay? In a related story, Larry the Cable Guy is sending movie footage of Colin Firth to the Academy in hopes of getting an Oscar, reasoning that he’ll eventually be just as good.
