Super Mario Bros Wii U game is not 1080p

  • Mario's first venture on a high-def console will not be taking the console's capabilities to the limit.

    The official website for the launch title New Super Mario Bros U used to boast, "Experience Mario like never before... in full 1080p HD, only on the Wii U console!"

    However, as fans were quick to point out, that suddenly changed without explanation. The site now only contains the phrase, "Experience Mario like never before... in high definition, only on the Wii U console!"

    It has been reported that almost all of the Wii U's launch titles will only deliver 720p HD graphics, an admittedly outdated resolution in a world where every content provider wants to offer the best experience possible.

    The Wii U will launch in the US on November 18. At $250, the basic version of the console will be the most expensive Nintendo home console ever, but it will still be cheaper than the first-day prices of the Xbox 360 or PS3.

    There is also a $300 version of the Wii U that comes bundled with more storage space and a copy of the game Nintendo Land.
