Because of the high-definition graphics of the Wii U and the 854×480 resolution of the Wii U GamePad's screen, a lot of people have been guessing that the lag time would be incredibly high. However, Ubisoft's Rayman Legends developer Michel Ancel has confirmed that the GamePad's screen only has a delay of 1/60 of a second.

We've already seen and heard some great things about ZombiU, and today we're finding out more about the game's story and characters thanks to a new development diary Ubisoft has shared with IGN.

Wii U’s slow CPU “a challenge” for one launch developer

Wii U’s slow CPU “a challenge” for one launch developer

These days, we have a better idea of what the Wii U is packing under the hood. While there are some aspects of the Wii U that are clearly better than the Xbox 360 or PS3, the CPU isn't one of them. We don't know everything about the Wii U's CPU just yet (clock speed, for instance, is still a mystery), but we do know that it comes from IBM and features three Power PC cores.

Wii U replacement GamePads will be offered at launch

Wii U replacement GamePads will be offered at launch

We already know that Nintendo isn't planning to offer standalone Wii U GamePads at launch here in the US, because the company isn't expecting to have games that support multiple GamePads available until sometime next year. That's fair enough, but that raises a pretty significant question for some gamers: what happens if the GamePad that comes packed with your Wii U gets damaged? Will you just be out of luck until Nintendo decides to start offering standalone GamePads? Thankfully, the answer to that question is "no," as Nintendo will be offering replacement GamePads for the more clumsy gamers out there.

Wii U pre-orders going fast at most online retailers

Nintendo's incoming Wii U has only been up for pre-order for a few days, but already it seems that some retailers are having issues keeping the console in stock. This is immediately reminiscent of the original Wii, which was a rare find for quite some time after release. Could the Wii U be headed for the same post-launch stock issues? That's hard to say for sure, but it certainly seems that way.

Darksiders II for the Nintendo Wii U to feature special content

THQ confirmed this week that its action-adventure title Darksiders II will be released for the Wii U game console. That fact came as no surprise since Nintendo had already confirmed, back in June, that the game would be a launch title for the console. However, what we didn't know at the time was that THQ would be packing the Wii U version with tons of extra content.

Black Ops II Wii U details unleashed

Black Ops II Wii U details unleashed

As expected, Nintendo confirmed today that Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be coming to Wii U. Gameplay obviously won't be too much different from its Xbox 360, PS3, and PC counterparts, but there are some features exclusive to the Wii U that helps this particular version standout from the crowd. Activision's Eric Hirshberg ran through these features during Nintendo's event today, with one of the most notable being that the game can be played on the Wii U GamePad's screen.

Bayonetta 2 to be a Wii U exclusive

Bayonetta 2 to be a Wii U exclusive

Nintendo made a lot of big announcements during its Wii U event earlier today, but perhaps one of the biggest reveals was that Bayonetta 2 is coming to the console. Not only that, but Sega has opted to make it a Wii U exclusive, something that will likely come as a shock to fans. There wasn't any talk of Bayonetta 2 being a timed exclusive, and since Nintendo is publishing the game, the chances of it coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 seem pretty slim.
