Whatever happens, happens.

The last man that owned wasdie was "Ispeakfact" and we all know what happened to him. :(

I know but you're too important. Take me instead! I volunteer!

SW can't afford to lose you again. You're by far the better and more entertaining poster.

Remember me for who I was.

Pretty much nails it then.
WiiU to be a Niche console like the Wii.MFDOOM1983
Niche =/= 100 million consoles sold


Look at the Library.
Niche Games EVERYWHERE.

[QUOTE="nintendoboy16"][QUOTE="MFDOOM1983"] Niche =/= 100 million consoles soldMFDOOM1983
100 million consoles sold =/= all of them used by buyers. Didn't Wii have WAY too many reports of Wii's collecting dust, something Iwata himself reported?

Niche = small market segment Nintendo does not make enough games to consistently satisfy consumers gaming needs. So the issue is not wii appealing to a niche market, but rather wii having no games due to poor 3rd party support.


Like what I just posted. Look at the games for Wii.
Most are games targeted at a smaller audience

you can get banned from arguing with a mod?

that sucks

No. You guys can make whatever connections you want but arguing with a mod will not get you banned.

We don't disclose why users have been banned, but you should know I was not a master moderator when that account was banned.

i was honestly just asking sorry dude

And from the recent Unreal 4 GDC demo, it doesn't look like the PS4 will get proper support either :?

Will run it better than KinectBox will!

Probably barely because the PS4 has medium-high end hardware. The hardware will below medium-high end by the end of this year most likely.

No it will run the engine just fine after developers scale it down and optimize. PS4 games will still run and look great.

But that's not technically true, he admitted the next day, walking back his gaffe. "You heard the stupid gaffe yesterday about the Wii U," he said. "If someone wants to take Unreal Engine 4 and ship a game on Wii U, they can! If they wanna ship an Unreal Engine 4 game on Xbox 360, they could make it happen." While that game might not look as pretty as it would on a "true" next-gen console, the new engine is scalable to a variety of platforms, including mobile.Engadget

Mark Rein went back on what he said about Unreal Engine 4 not being supported on the Wii U.

Mario, Zelda and many other Nintendo IPs will sell on the Wii U, regardless if they support those engines or not.

That said, I doubt third parties will show interest on the Wii U after this.

You have to go back to the SNES days if one wants to see 3rd party support on a Nintendo console.

Mainly Japanese third party support. Not many western developed games were that popular on SNES outside of Mortal Kombat, but even that series sold more on Genesis/MegaDrive, which had other western IP's more popular there like EA with the Strike and Madden games (this is why Nintendo losing EA in particular isn't that big as when EA refused to support the Dreamcast)

Why are some Sheep acting like they having a high powered rig already capable of running Unreal 4 at Ultra Spec and judging PS4 graphical performance like they have a clue :?

If you care about performance and engines and such, then you should know the Wii:U is not capable of it or nowhere to that kind of gaming experience, so why succumb so low to play something at low resolution and spec...

Hypocrites much?

Seems like the wii-u will be similar to the gamecube and 2011-12 wii, That's a shame.

Lol at the Sheep that think this is not important. If Unreal 4 is even half as important this gen as Unreal 3 was last gen; and if it's true that WiiU will not have it... well it will hurt the WiiU... A lot!

How will the Wii:U market respond to this?
By making appealing to the casuals as a family friendly console?

Hard Nintendo fans act like they don't care but deep down they all do.

Yes, but think of it this way - in the next few years i imagine 90% of all EA games will use frostbite. All epic games will obviously use Unreal, and I can imagine all devs that used Unreal 3 this gen will continue to use Unreal next gen, since it is a waste of resources to learn a whole new dev tools.


The final nail in the coffin would be if Crytek said Cry engine 3 won't run on Wii U: Cry Engine, Unreal, and Frostbite are currently THE most used engines out there, if none of them are on Wii U - there will be almost NO multi platfiorms on Wii U...


This then has a dire effect on sales, and Wii U goes a long way down.

I think a dev is porting cry engine 3 to the console the last time I heard.
