Reggie: Call Of Duty looks dramatically better on Wii U

Wii U is more graphically intensive than rival consoles

Nintendo's US boss Reggie Fils Aime has hit back at a suggestion that Wii U is on a par with Xbox 360 and PS3, arguing that third party games such as Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 look dramatically better on Nintendo's new console.

In an interview with CNN, Fils-Aime was asked if he was worried about Sony and Microsoft releasing new consoles in the next year.

Reggie responded: "I have to correct you. The specs are quite different than the competitor systems. Much more graphically intensive. If you do a side-by-side comparison, you would actually see that third-party games like Call of Duty look dramatically better on our system.

"And then in terms of what competition's going to do in the future, we'll see. We know that based on our own development, this two-screen gaming experience really is the next innovation that consumers are gravitating to."

Given the success of the Wii U launch in America, it seems that Reggie is confident about the future. " It's selling extremely well here in the Americas, " he added. "Already stocks are quite low in the marketplace, we're rapidly replenishing. And so for us, certainly consumers are deciding that the innovation is well worth their investment."

Wii U is released in the UK this Friday.
