So if the goal for UE4 is next-gen consoles, then that means it won't be coming to PC or mobiles/tablets. Contradicting their earlier 'very scalable' claim. Hm.

It's coming to mobile/tablets.

A lot of bad news lately for the Wii U, i am starting to feel bad for them.



The so called western 3rd party games hardly sell on Nintendo platforms, and neither of them is crucial for Nintendo to succeed it is well known fact supported by years of empirical evidence (sales). The eventual success or failure of their platforms depend only on success or failure of their 1st party software.

For 3rd party publishers the eventual success of Nintendo is extremely dangerous because Nintendo is the only platform holder whose success didn't depend on their good will.

No wonder they scream.



Another nail in the coffin for the Wii U....Nintendo went the weaker console route again only this time their new gimmick hasn't caught on to the masses. Im kinda glad its going down like this. They needed to be humbled much like Sony was with the PS3

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

Honestly, I think Nintendo should partner with a tech company to create a device that's able to add more ram and specs to the Wii U. Not on the Wii U ,but the PS4 and 720 as well. Consoles are already seen as cheap gaming PCs, eventually its going to happen and I think Microsoft is going to tackle this idea first as Sony and Nintendo follow.

I don't want to see Nintendo go out of the console buisness, because it'll be very bad for the industry. I want all three consoles to succeed, I find it mean spirited to see people wanted a company to fail for their enjoyment. Remember folks, its fun to have little petty flame wars from time to time ,but don't forget ,there are actually people working at these companies who jobs can be one the line at these difficult times.



Don’t follow the hype, follow the games

A lot of Nintendo fans usually say that third party games don't sell on Nintendo consoles because they're not up to the quality of Nintendo's first party's offerings. So why do people care if third parties won't bring any games to the Wii U!?



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

This reminds me of how UE3 wasn't "able to" run on the 3DS, yet MT Frameworks (which is arguably a better engine) can.

But Cliff Bleszinski was fired, remind me again why UE4 is so important/relevant to next gen., especially considering most major companies are designing their own engines?

Batman Arkham series
Bioshock series
Borderlands series
Bulletstorm
Dishonored
Devil May Cry
Enslaved
Injustice
Mass Effect series
Mirror's Edge
Mortal Kombat
Spec Ops
Star Wars 1313
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six series
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell series
Transformers series
Unreal Tournament 3
XCOM series

to name the important multiplatform games based on Unreal Engine.
Obviously you can scratch the EA games, but they will run on Frostbite so those will most likely not arrive on WiiU either.

UE3 and now UE4 are cheap and that's why developers use it. I think licensing UE3 for a game costed about $1m. Hilariously cheap compared to creating your own engine from the ground up.

if i don't care (and i don't, pc) that doesn't mean the public doesn't



As long as there is MS AND Sony in the console business, Nintendo is simply not going to give a shit about 3rd party games, the business is just not dependable (see gamecube aka 3rd wheel). So Nintendo will passively allow 3rd parties to make unique versions for ninty if they choose, if not, oh well. This is why I root for one of MS or Sony to leave the console business (Sony leaving is more realistic, + i have to be pro American), so that we can get an all out competitive console from ninty.

As somewhat of a compensation, what we'll see from the big N is more of their own multiplats, ie 3DS/Wii U version of games.
