Kombo reports: It would appear, for the moment, that Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe will not be receiving a Wii iteration. Why? Epic's Unreal Engine 3.
I really consider this a win for the Wii honestly
lol i guess they didn't get the ps3 visuals can be done on wii memo
Wow, Epic are kinda snobbish these days. Still, UT3 isn't doing as hot as it should be so I guess karma is giving them a wee bit o' payback.
the number of titles using the Unreal Tournament 3 engine is insane. The problem with this whole issue is that the number of things that would have to be removed to get the game to run on the Wii would end up ruining the title for most people if they were to compare. This is the price that Wii owners are going to have to pay for going with the "fun" "low cost" console.
Wait, wasn't there a port of Armageddon on the Wii. Midway is causing hysteria on their part, if they're backing out like this. If there are limitations, they should address them in a positive manner. Fan-ish poking will definitely be apparent the next few hours, if not minutes. Is Midway really in control of their games anymore?
sounds cheesy.. and whats the big deal about UNREAL ENGINE 3, not many companies actually make great looking or great games with it with the exception of a few.. now do you think that the MK vs DC will be good? i mean the last few MK games were a bit.. Lackluster in my books.. i never played armageddon but i played almost everything up till there. and still the best of the best was MK2 or MK3 (some may argue which one is better) and there have been reports of UNREAL 3 being scaled down to wii and such.. so i don't see the big deal with Unreal 3.. other then GEAR OF WAR.. which looked awsome. but then again it may be that i have little faith in this game.. I mean i like the DC part.. but the MK part worries me.. but then again when was the last time there was a decent DC game? can anyone say SUPERMAN 64? (Lego Batman does not count, as we know LEGO is just awsome)
I heard they had trouble getting the game to run smoothly on the 360,so this may very well be true.
or does no one else at ALL care about this game?
no one gives a fcuk about this game.
im pretty shure a game about killing other people isnt suppost to be played by 5-10 year olds(wii audience).
I'm actually looking forward to the game only because I'm a huge MK fan and think the added characters will open up the story and revive the franchise! However if there's no blood or fatalities I will be a little disappointed but for the most part still satisfied! Now this news really does suck for Wii owners but Ed mentioned long ago that he wanted his game to have Gears of War visuals and I'm sorry but it's Nintendo's fault for limiting there hardware design with last gen tech! Personally I believe there will be blood because why else would he use UE3 and want his game to have gears visuals! E3 will answer so many questions this year and I have alot of faith in this game and yes care for it!
this game is sooo gay
Welp they just lost 10,000 sales for they're Wii version if it were to come out.
Any Real Next-gen game is Impossible in Wii!!!!! The [email protected] are losing the really great games because of the wii!!!
Epic may not think that they are burning much of a bridge by all of a sudden being pricks toward Nintendo, but wait and see. This sort of thing is stupid. It can't help them in any way to make such statements to hype a game. With a crappy game like this, the only thing anyone will remember in the long run as far as hype goes is what they said to try and belittle Nintendo. We all know that Superman isn't going to get his heart ripped out, Wonder Woman isn't going to have her spine torn out, and the 10 year old Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will still be better as far as gameplay goes. This game is going to be teh suckzorz.
