Forums - Gaming Discussion - Nintendo could buy Epic games serveral times over with just the cash they have lying around.....

It amazes me the level arrogance that Mark Rein of Epic games has. He laughs when asked about UE4 engine on Wii U, yet Nintendo could buy him and all of his friends with the cash they're sitting on. Now that's not in Nintendo's nature, but people like Mark have to learn that it's bad business to burn bridges.  Arrogance has been the downfall of many.
btw...how do you like having your American founded company 40% owned by the Chinese Mark?

it would be pointless cause they would just leave and start a new studio. They just create a new engine lol.

 

 

Why do you people think that Nintendo is some animate object? Newsflash, it isn't a person. It doesn't have feelings. It doesn't get hurt by things like this. Anyway, the guy laughed as we all know the power of the WiiU and the power needed for Unreal 4 - the question was stupid. It was the same as asking if a Prius could win the F1.

Better option would be to pay them to get UE4 working on WiiU. Then offer it as a free upgrade to multi-port 3rd parties.

How is that relevant?
Makes you wonder why they don't just buy some 3rd party games. Why should he be afraid of the money Nintendo have?

and yet all the cash in the word can't bridge the power gap between wiiU and ps4/xbox8 that is causing it to miss on every engine, every game.

Nintendo should just buy them off already

I didn't say that Mark should be afraid of the money Nintendo has. The point is that you don't burn bridges in business. When people say things publicly like Mark did it can have an adverse effect on the company he's talking about. Nintendo is a very wealthy and still powerful company. Mark should play nice with them. I've owned my own business for 8 years now, regardless of how I feel about something, I don't burn bridges.

That's not the case at all.  You really need to stop posting about things you think you know about.  Unreal Engine 4 is coming to mobile devices.  It's supposed to be a scalable engine.  The reason for not putting it on the Wii U is obviously something different.

It's Nintendo who's the one that burned that bridge. They are too stubborn for their own good.
