Nintendo US CEO Reggie Fils-Aime has admitted that the company used footage from Xbox and PS3 titles during its demon of the new Wii U HD at the Electronic Entertainment Expo taking place in Los Angeles this week.

Speaking to GameTrailers during a post-presentation interview he was asked if the demos shown were of the Xbox and PS3. He replied:

"Absolutely, because we're talking a year away from when the console will launch."

So, basically Nintendo is saying that it doesn't have any HD footage worth showing of the Wii U yet, so here's footage from other consoles ... which may or may not look like the Wii U in the end.

Trust no one ...
