Well despite first party launch games only running at 720P, multiple third party games run @1080p. I only know a few right now, but maybe people can add games if they aren't included.

Right now the list includes:

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

Assasins Creed 3

ZombiU

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Transformers Prime

Newly Added:

Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate

If there's any game you know that also does 1080p just comment.

Source? I know Batman and AC3 were just said to run in 1080p by Wii U Daily but they never gave a source and no one else has said the same about them (to my knowledge)

No these are native 1080p. Also Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Batman Arkham City and Assasins Creed 3 are running at 60 FPS as well. I also have a feeling that ZombiU and Transformers Prime would be as well, I'm not quite sure though.

I want to think they do have 1080p but those are just rumors and are no way confirmed. Wii U Daily is known for posting WAY too many rumors that don't pan out and their acting as the SOURCE for some of this. Additionally the "reports" that a Nintendo rep said in Chicago that Batman and AC3 would be 1080p may not be legit. There's no video of the rep saying it, and even if he/she did they aren't developing the game so they aren't too keen on information. Black Ops 2 is said to be "Full HD" but Treyarch could mean 720p since, by comparison, it is "Full HD" over 640p in the sense that it's actually HD. Like I said I hope they are all 1080p but there is no concrete information saying so. Find me company reps saying this in official interviews or videos, then yes.

They never said "1080p", they said "Full HD". By all means they could be saying "Full HD" because their games usually run at 640p upscaled into "not HD"

I know what full HD means,but we don't know if that rep is talking about the COD franchise finally display in an HD resolution for the first time on a console or 1080P 60fps.I would not be shocked if it actually ran at 1080P anyway.I watched the media thing.

I doubt it. PC(crossfire 6950s) can barely run it(Treyarch games) stable @ 60 frames locked, those games are soo unoptimized.

You have your facts completely wrong. Full HD is the term for 1080p, no other resolution is Full HD you can look it up if you want. Just go into a store, a 720p TV will never be labelled as Full HD because it is not. Anyways Call of Duty on current consoles only run at 540p, which is Sub HD, half the resolution of Full HD. Technically you could say anything above 640p is HD, but it is not Full HD. They didn't just say HD which they could have, they said Full HD, for the Xbox 360 and PS3 version they never have ever said it runs in Full HD. Anyways multiple developers have come out and said the Wii-U is very capable of running native 1080p, so I don't know why this is so hard for you to accept. Like the rumored GPU's of the Wii-U are more then capable of running 1080p on max settings for most of current gen games. Nintendo first party games and Mass Effect 3 are the only ones confirmed to run at 720p. Nintendo probably doesn't feel the need to push their launch games graphically since New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land aren't exactly graphically intensive, and making it 1080p probably wouldn't make a very large difference. However I imagine when we see a 3D Mario game, or the Legend of Zelda Wii U, it will probably run at 1080p 60 FPS and out perform any current gen title. The Zelda tech demo and the Garden tech demo both ran at 1080p, and both of those look better then any game on current gen platforms.

I was really hoping for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to make the list of 1080p. Its only 720p on PS3 and 360. I figured WiiU could make the difference in temrs of power.

Full HD means 1080p, its not like just like a general term that we say, Full HD is 1080p, so if you say Full HD and its not 1080p your just wrong. Now the fact Treyarch clearly said "Full" in multiple interviews, so he clearly knew he was saying Full HD. Also it doesn't matter if COD games run at 540p before, that doesn't change the term "Full" HD. They would just say 720p or HD, but the fact he clearly said Full HD means either the Treyarch rep made a mistake in the interviews and is not knowledgeable about resolution terms, or it is in fact 1080p.

I'm just saying don't get your hopes up. This is Activision we're talking about. I want it to be 1080p, I hope it is 1080p and I'm getting BO2 day one on the Wii U. But I'm bracing for it to be 720p. Other versions aren't even HD technically so this could all just be PR spin. The fact that no one has officially said "1080p native" has me worried because I know Activision could spin this "Full HD" thing a thousand different ways.

What a great revelation you've provided from a year in the future -_- Why on earth would you bother bumping this..?
