Will the Wii U finally be able to get around the issues consoles have with graphics that forces game devs to implement this? It is not just an art direction, but a way for consoles and computers to get around lighting issues that have always plagued gaming. Will the Wii U finally find a way to realistically light an area without having to unnaturally "dirty" an area to distract players from that?

It IS just a art direction. Developers don't put in the realistic Nitty gritty dark look because they have "Lighting issues". They do it because the stupid American gaming audience inexplicably likes that sort of garbage.

Nah but seriously - I don't think we can honestly know that yet. All specs are rumoured, and even if they are true of the devkit models, they aren't necessarily final specs. So all I can assume is that that is probably some sort of goal, and thus we can certainly hope so.

I'd say it certainly was an art direction - but some games have utilized it for lighting concerns (either exclusively for that reason or just as a bit of a bonus to them).

P.s. - funny quote XD

...I will agree with u on some of those games(such as Mortal Kombat) but you are exaggerating a little too much...no, you are exaggerating WAY too much
