Can/could the Wii U run the HD experience Zelda demo?

#1Gavin_RozeePosted 2/5/2013 10:34:24 AM
Based on the stuff we know about the systems innards, could it run that, or would it have to be gimped in some way?

I'm not fussed either way, I play games for games, but I am curious.

Well, that was the entire point of the demo - to show what the Wii U can do. I'd say that yes, it can.

Consider this signature an outdated and groan-inducing meme.

It did run that. What are you talking about?

I just thought maybe it was exaggerated, or running on hardware different to the final Wii U.

Well, nobody knows their hardware best than Nintendo. Look at Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2. It had those graphics on an overclocked Gamecube.
Plus, I think already X looks better than that demo.

It would be hilarious if it couldn't. :)

It was running on underclocked dev kits, just like the Japanese garden tech demo.

Which effectively means the Wii U can do better than that,

i'm sure the 2nd tp one is a promo still, since it has the unused magic bar, and it would probably take a bit of effort to capture it with all those sparks.
