Creator of Rayman, Michael Ancel, has pointed out in an interview with Nintendo Power that people do not understand Wii U’s full potential, especially in regard to the Wii U GamePad. Ancel stated that he has been very impressed with the GamePad because it features low latency and “crazy” response time.
“And I think this is where Nintendo is really out in front of things. The technology inside the controller is quite a bit more advanced than what people might think. It’s really responsive. The response time is crazy, in fact, and I think the competitors will need some time to [get their solutions] this responsive.
“It’s crazy because the game is running in full HD [on the television], we are streaming another picture on the GamePad screen, and it’s still 60 frames per second. And the latency on the controller is just 1/60 of a second, so it’s one frame late. It’s crazy, it’s so fast. It’s almost instant. That’s why it responds so well. So it can be used as a real game-design thing.”
