Nintendo admits E3 Wii U reel used PS3 and Xbox 360 clips

Nintendo of America head Reggie Fils-Aime admitted Tuesday that the E3 highlight reel of third-party titles for the new Wii U console used footage from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of games. In an interview with GameTrailers, Fils-Aime said it used footage from other consoles because the Wii U is a year from launch and games on its system would look at least as good as PS3 and 360 versions.
