Wii U fail - doesn't support modern games

6 replies 259 views Edited Jan 15, 2013

This is what Nintendo's trying to pull with Wii U - metaphorically speaking:

The console can not support modern games.  Thus several next-gen games such as:

Hitman
Devil May Cry
The great battles of World War 2
F1 race stars
Farcry 3
Metal Gear Rising

which are coming to Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, are being passed up on Wii U.  Farcry 2 was radically decreased in scope to fit on Wii - that was amazing enough.  But they won't pull that off with Farcry 3.

What is it with you and these anti-WiiU posts?

I am sure that many developers are taking a wait and see approach (just like with the Vita). Unless it is easy to accomplish, I doubt that many companies are going to spend a lot of time making WiiU games with a fairly small install base.

Personally I purchase Nintendo products to play Nintendo games. If Nintendo can make a Zelda game with the fidelity of that tech demo they showed at E3, I will probably buy one...

I get it now. He represents Sony's attempts to subvert the forum population with a campaign of black propaganda. It's all so clear!

Most of those games might be available to the WiiU at a later date.

The Wii U is more than capable of running said games, as I believe it is slightly more powerful then the PS3. I think the reason they aren't on Wii U is because they started development before the developers got their hands on a dev-kit. We'll have to wait and see if it can handle PS4/720 games however.

One would think that the WiiU would be at least on par with the X360 & PS3. Nintendo not releasing any official specs didn't help matters. 

 

However someone did some testing at found that this system is less powerful: http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/142002-wii-u-cpu-and-gpu-clock-speeds-revealed-not-the-end-of-the-...

I thought all that was found is that it had a lower clock speed. Regardless, it's basically on par with PS3/360, and reproducing those games would be no hard task.
