Wii U Gamepad lag, only 1/60 of a second.


One concern among potential buyers of the Wii U is the possibility of incredible lag between the image displayed on your TV, to the image displayed on the Gamepad.

What with the Wii U’s high definition graphics and the Wii U Gamepad’s touchscreen resolution of 854×480, it seemed like a valid concern.

Fear not! The lag is only 1/60 of a second, according to Ubisoft’s Rayman Legends developer Michel Angel.

It just means that the image arrives on the Wii U’s Gamepad one single frame later than the image on your TV. It’s not a big deal and most people won’t even notice it, according to Mr Angel.

Michel Angel also had a bit more to say about the tablet-controller hybrid, calling the Wii U Gamepad “quite a bit more advanced than people think.”

So there you have it, any doubts you had about the Gamepad can be put to rest, unless you are like me and don’t believe anything until you have seen it for yourself…
