Crytek hoping for core gaming market on Wii U

Crytek, developer of Crysis and the CryEngine, hopes that there will be a market for core gaming on the Wii U, but isn't sure it's part of Nintendo's strategy. CryEngine's director of global business development, Carl Jones also said that the Wii U is "something we're really interested in."

When asked directly about the possibility of a market for core gaming on the Wii U, Jones was hopeful but quite realistic.

"I really hope so but I don’t think it’s a necessary part of their strategy. The Wii is great at the games people like playing on it. I'm not sure yet what Nintendo's strategy might be for hardcore.

"I don't know if we’ll see flagship core titles on that platform – as a fan of Nintendo I’d love to see it personally, but I also enjoy playing the non-core titles a great deal."

What have u seen the line-up 4 launch its better than any console before it and its 99% hardcore in fact Crytek will need to put Crysis 3/4 on it unless they want to look at mario games with better graphics not to mention Metroid/Zelda/F-Zero/Starfox/B F3/MW3/GRO/KillerFreaks/Ninja Gaiden 3/Darksiders2 in graphics equal to top spec pc,Cryek just 1 thing half of ur gamers are kids Playstation has alot a kid gamers its up to developers to put there most Hardcore titles on a platform is what moulds the platform into what it is i mean u dont take this approach with PS4/720 so why with a Console Nintendo have said is 4 games u cant get on Wii ur trying to turn WiiU into the same problem

STOP SUCKING MICROSOFTS/SONYS BALLS AND GET ANNOUNCING SOME GAMES 4 WIIU THAT CANT BE POSSIBLE ON PS3/360 ITS HOW U MAKE MONEY BITCH.
