I noticed on my game cases that none of them show what resolution the game can be displayed in. I know its not really important but I like to know which games are actually doing 1080p. Anyone else notice this or am I missing it somewhere?

Unfortunately, they don't have this information on the box. It's on the eShop.

Consoles game cases never list native resolutions. In all situations it only lists output formats. Since the Wii U scales games to whatever you have it set to, there wouldn't be a point to listing anything on the game boxes (since it would just be like the Xbox 360 where every title lists 720p/1080i/1080p on the back). Unfortunately most publishers don't even bother divulging what native resolutions the games run at, unless it's 1080p native of course (which ironically isn't even native 1080p in many situations).

That's not true, my PS3 games tell me what resolution they are capable of. For instance, my Sonic racing and Infamous cases say up to 720, while my assassin's creed 3 says 1080.
