Ubisoft Confirms Wii U Box Art

Wii U Logo

When box art images of Wii U games began appearing on the Canadian version of Amazon yesterday, some questioned if they were legitimate. Now we have official confirmation, with Ubisoft PR rep, Michael Beadle, saying to GameTrailers that yes, these are real.

"Why yes, the Wii U box art you sent is legit; in fact, it’s too legit to quit," he said. Showing that PR guys sure know how to talk cool to the kids.

The game box art that we've been given the "legit" view of, includes: Avengers: Battle for Earth, Just Dance 4 and Assassin's Creed 3. Each featured the blue and yellow colouring surrounding the Wii U logo, suggesting that will be the official scheme for the sort-of next-gen system, in a similar fashion to the Xbox 360's green and white.

While I'm sure Nintendo reserves the right to change its release plans at any time, it's also interesting to note that Assassin's Creed 3 is listed as hitting the shelves on October 30th - slightly sooner than the predicted Christmas period Wii U release. Perhaps we'll be seeing Nintendo's new console as early as the start of November.

Full-hd gaming? you mean that

Full-hd gaming? you mean that thing that has been around on the pc since the advent of the 17inch CRT monitor? Hd = some dumbass resolution standard, i had as many pixel in 1996 as i do now, but no! back in 1996 it wasn't had, it was just roughly the same overall resolution, but at a HIGHER FRAME AND REFRESH RATE. So wait, you mean we've slid backwards? Really? I didn't notice this when my pc ended up 40 or so times faster than the closest console.

No duh, as if I didn't

No duh, as if I didn't already no that. I'm talking consoles not pc. I have a 80 in hd tv and a 19 inch monitor that supports hd (I think most pc owners do by now). I don't care about hd gaming as much on my tiny monitor as I do my big screen. So Eff off u poo face.

hd gaming sounds tempting eh?

hd gaming sounds tempting eh? how about Creed? nice band too.. oh and that guy Marilyn Manson.. Oh and I heard they will release a Playstation 2. I could go on but I think you understand now that PC got HD since a long time.. but it never used it in marketing as consoles do it now to tease naive people.

Like i said above "No duh, as
