With Frostbite Go being revealed for mobile platforms it seems EA is hellbent on developing Frosbite for every platform as long as it isn't manufactured by Nintendo.
The Wii U is too weak to run the Frostbite 3, or even the Frostbite 2. They can't be scaled down to run on it in the slightest. But phones are definitely powerful enough.
Frostbite Go was most likely designed from the ground up with mobile platforms in mind. It's not going to share much with Frostbite 2/3 besides the content pipeline, workflow and name.
He's making a joke. The fact is that EA hates Nintendo with a passion right now, and they are determined to go out of their way to try to drag Nintendo down and show how they are making things for everything except Nintendo.
Need for Speed Most Wanted U runs Frostbite 2 on WiiU just fine.
i disagree with you i didnt know it was sarcasm to excuse myself i put you a bubble to everybody, if your doing sarcasm dont forget your sarcasm tad /s
yet crytek's new engine can run on the Wii U?
It's really weird since EA was the first to freaking hype the Wii U !
Too bad both EA and Nintendo have there heads stuffed way up there asses. Personally I was hoping to play Battlefield 4 with motion+ wiimotes one day... I guess that's not going to happen oh well.
yes its sad that this has become bitter and no need for EA or people like dice to be making up lies that frostbite 2 cant work on wiiu when its cpu/gpu is more powerful then xbox 360 but that system is getting a frostbite 3! dice could be made to look stupid if disney force ea to put star wars games on wii u as I understand that they will run on frostbite 3! but Nintendo need to either try and fix the relationship with EA or if thats beyond fixing then they need to counter these EA statements about the wii u being under powered as it gives fan boys extra ammo to slag off the wii u and can harm their console sales! the fact frostbite 2 is coming to mobile phones says it all really!! sad for the gaming community because we need consumer choice to keep costs down! if sony and MS dominate the market place then they and game developers have freedom to charge what ever they want to buy games! people should understand as consumers we need nintendo! imagine if sony decided that they no longer wanted to support the console market! that would just leave a monopoly of microsoft!!!
What isn´t funny is that instead of creating engines just for the Wii U developers have decided that it isnt worth the effort and they are just abandoning the platform. As far as i know 3 major engines will not make it to the Wii U and those are: 1. FrostByte 3 2. Unreal Engine 4 3. Cry Engine (note even though they had the Wii U running crysis EA pulled the plug on the project) And there are rumors that the fox engine wont appear on the Wii U as well as the pantarey (modified MT framework engine) engine from capcom. But Nintendo fans dont care about those engines because only 3rd parties use them which is why they shouldnt be worried at all.
can't call them major engines until games are actually made with them. you never know what company could put out the new "unreal3" doesn't have to be a major company.
CryEngine 3 will run on WiiU fine. EA didn't pull the plug. Crytek did themselves I believe. Its too early for them to build a game on WiiU platform. Needs people on the platform before they can sell it to someone. Problem for Nintendo is that every game engine is built with x86 in mind for PC development. So every engine is compatible without even trying to be with PS4/X720 in a way. WiiU requires retooling the engine for a different design similar to all previous console generations which costs developers more money. Without a decent install base they will not see enough money returned to them so they don't do it. We will see it happen at some point though. Likely by 2014/2015 most major engines could be supporting WiiU or WiiU could be left in the dust. There is no way of really knowing just yet.
Cry Engine3 is already running on WiiU. That game is Shadow of the Eternals
So I should think about selling my console because "EA" named the worst company won't support Ninendo consoles. If I had to choose between "EA and Nintendo", it will definitely be Nintendo. And if I look at that way, EA is irrelevant. I really feel I shouldn't need to speak my mind on this but a slap in the fast, I will say a love tap.
I agree with you. I havent bought a EA game in a long while
we gamers, no matter what console we own/love, should back nintendo in standing up to corropt ea who want to monopolise the entire games industry. it is quite obvious that ea gave nintendo an ultimatum: use origin or else.... Again, im a passionate gamer, not a nintendo fanboy, but nintendo have done more for gaming in general than fu**ing ea ever will.
Like I wrote YESTERDAY: "@-Mika- 1ST) My Avatar is not Zelda- Look closer- it was created by a former games company whose name began with a "V" in homage to the game you mentioned. 2ND) We all know what you mean but it is an aberration of the meaning of the word "generation". We have to fight the meaning because if we don't people push it even further. -Some still can't admit that the WiiU is more powerful than current Gen. -Companies have lied and then recanted stating that the WiiU can't run their "SCALABLE to SMART Phone" Engines. The thing that is clear is that some companies have decided not to put the work in- Fine- They just shouldn't trash the WiiU in order to justify their personal choices. All last Gen many games were designed for PC max specs but received a downgraded version for consoles- so how is it now impossible to do the same thing for WiiU. Ex. Watch_Dogs is on *PS3- PC*... how is this possible? Developer choice that's How." *"PS3- PC"= PS3 through PC = Every console from PS360 to WiiU to PS4/720 to PC.*
