A recent rumor suggests that an employee from Crytek got their upcoming shooter Crysis 3 up and running on the latest Wii U dev kit.
So many rumors about this console. Let's just drop all the speculation and see what it does when it comes out. My money is on the Wii U collecting even more dust than my Wii does though...
I love how you begin by saying, "let's end speculation...", and then you speculate yourself. Very funny, I guess you meant "let's end positive speculation... right?".
very...very well said
Well said Moduserous.
Very well said Moduserous :)
Rumors that wii u is weaker than current gen: Lolololololo wii u iz teh failz!!1!! Rumors about the wii u is actually more powerful: Lololol so what? More powerful than 6 year old consoles? Big surprise!!!! Nothing satisfy you people.....
People hate Nintendo for no reason at all. Simply to have something to hate.
Or the flip side: Rumors that wii u is weaker than current gen: Gameplay > graphics Rumors about the wii u is actually more powerful: Yes! Yes! Yes! Can't wait to see Zelda in HD!!!
There's one way for you to retort to something like that.
I hope to God for your family sake that you are not an active betting man cause you and your family will be or are living on the street. Never bet against Nintendo.
Guys... .when are we going to start using common sense. NEWS FLASH... if it is running on PS3/360 then without using a brain cell it is also running on the Wii U... If the must anti Nintendo rumor tell you it is on par with 360/PS3 (I strongly believe it is more powerful) so clearly it can run Crysis 3. HELLO.... IT IS MORE ADVANCED... GEEZ!!!. The only question if any to really ask is if it can run the game at highest settings and frame rate (max graphics, physics, AI).
You must have a dusty home. Sure your other consoles is not collecting dust as well, since powered computers/consoles absorbs dust?
With the WiiU being more powerful than the Xbox 360 (lol), I don't doubt that it'll run CryENGINE 3.
Yeah, it's not that hard to envision.
Agreed...In fact if WiiU couldn't run CryEngine 3 then I think we could all pretty much assume that console would be DOA. It pretty much should be assumed that WiiU will be able to run Crysis 3.
Fix that...since the360 and ps3 are on par with each other then their is a good bet the nintendo wi u will be as powerfull but probably more powerfull then both until sony and microsoft release their next gen.
Finally proof that nintendo is still the very best.
I dont really consider it the "very best" yet. Current gen consoles could already play crysis 3, Wii U is a next gen console.
Actually, you're BOTH wrong. This "rumor" isn't "proof" of ANYTHING....and the Wii U is an extreeeeeeeeemely late-to-the-party CURRENT gen console.
Wii U is next gen, get your facts straight
I agree m8 the wiiu will be amazing,this article states the wiiu can do the exact same graphics as ultra setting PC,makes wiiu a major next gen machine all this was done on V4 dev kits wow.
I think it's fake honestly. If you read the source, it says Crytek couldn't turn off the tablet screen and I think I remember hearing that it only takes like one line of code to turn it off...
Unless this is a very old report, with a very old dev kit. If that were the case, the dev kits have actually gotten more powerful with each iteration. I also think what you are remembering was a statement about how easy it was to code to get the tablet running content properly, not turning it off. I forget who said this, though...^_^;
Hah! A next generation console runs a game that's being developed for the current gen. Now that's what I call news.
Ha its for PC Also
Made for consoles but on PC. BF3 PC and BF3 Console are not the same though.
Ha its for PC Also.
Ah, I'm sure it's totally legit, such a reputable source is not to be taken lightly. My cousin's friend's uncle who totally works at Nintendo's super-duper secret labs said that they're running SCUMM on it now. Shocking, but the source is obviously legit. Would I lie to you? Just so you'd think I was super cool and on the inside track?
@Most of the comments above It's news because a previous rumor said that Crisis 3 would not be on the WiiU. Reading is fundamental.
Why wouldn't it run Crysis 3 anyway? That's a current generation game we're talking about here. Of course the PC version will include DX11 features and stuff but hey, the game runs on PS3 and 360, if Wii U, being the next generation console of Nintendo, wasn't powerful enough to run a current generation game, Nintendo would be in trouble... And I mean, serious trouble.
Uh ok... Are you asking for my opinion, or are you just saying that this should not be news? Crytek previous hinted that Crisis 3 would not be coming to the WiiU. It didn't make a lot of sense to me either, so I have no idea why. (And) yes I agree, not being able to run current gen games will spell trouble for Nintendo. Fortunately, all devs have assured us that the WiiU is infact next gen. Believe what you want, I really don't care.
Ugh..... Just because there is a possibility that crytek won't port crysis 3 to the wii u doesn't mean it can't run it if they wanted to. Red dead isn't available on PC does it mean PCs can't run red dead?
@braid I think all the stats of this particular run are at pc high end levels, quite a bit above crysis 3 on ps3 and 360 WHILE also running at half resolution on the tablet at a solid 30-35 fps. If the tablet were disabled, it would run on screen the same but at 1080p, which current gen cannot even do. This would make it next gen.
This is amazing if true I cannot wait to get a Wii U later this year!
Why is Crysis 3 coming out we are in the same damn city like in Crysis 2 this shouldn't be Crysis 3, Crytek should have made this a Expansion Pack like crysis Warhead this is so ridiculous.
It can happen.
funny that some here consider the WiiU not next Gen just because its getting ports from ps3/360. But wasn't the 360 a year early? And it too was getting ports from the Xbox and ps2. But everyone considers the 360 part of the next Gen consoles. So why not the WiiU?
I like how people equate a game running in a higher resolution, frame rate and with more features as not being a big deal. After all of the dumb fan driven articles that WiiU is possibly even weaker than the PS3! Ps3 has only one screen to render to and it can't achieve anything close to those benchmarks stated in the article for Crysis 3. But of course this is just a rumor and trolls are willing to support it as such, because articles like this actually look favorable to Nintendo and we can't have that can we...
Nintendo is rarely criticized compared to the other two. Rarely. Why people are quick to jump on a very defensive stance on this? As to this rumor, I believe Crysis 3 is coming to the Wii U, or at least being planned for it so that Cytek can increase their viewership. I am not sure about the resulting specs, especially as it relates to a full release game with all the various elements enabled. I think it might be true of a tech demo, which is a very trimmed down version of a full game without any multiplayer elements. I don't think the Wii U specs will be running games at 1080p and 30fps without some give on texture quality and the like.
Well i don't know what Nintendo articles you are looking at on here but most are pretty negative towards Nintendo and a console that hasn't even been fully unveiled to the public as of yet... it's not as if Nintendo had a major fail in the console or handheld arena this Gen. But people speak such ill will as to wanting them to go out of business! (But at the same time they want nintendo to develope games for Sony and Microsoft) how ironic is that... But in the end they must know what they are doing and obviously understand how to weather the storm of competition. As they are the only Pure games corporation left! So its odd that people love to hate them, knowing the heritage they have in gaming
This is great news, but it was confirmed shorty after e3 that CryEngine would be supported, check it out. http://computerandvideogame...
I remember that article; as well as Crytek's positive opinion of Wii U. I found it confusing that they would not bring Crysis 3 to the Wii U in light of all of what we knew. Then I figured that they must be so far into their development cycle that it's too late to port the game over to meet the release date of the 360/PS3 versions. That's alright in my book. If not Crysis 3 then I'll look forward to their followup game.
Oh thats good then :)I do see 60fps/1080P on XB 3 and PS4 though.
m8 the wiiu will run UE4 at at 35fps 1080p,and samariton demo at 60fps,this article is talking about V4 dev kits which are about half the power of V5,plus it wasn't optimized or anything yet it still gets proper 720p/ultra setting proves that if it can do that on half the real power says a lot. With V5 dev-kits and optimized wiiu could run Crysis 3 at 1080p/576p on tablet at 60fps+ on ultra settings Open GL equivalent of DX11 that's the truth wait and see if right at E3.
There missing a vital piece of info that the original source definatly said is that this was on V4 dev-kits and V5 are said to be a considerable jump in power over V4 and can run UE4 so it can do alot more than what this guys says. Think 1080p/and 576p on tablet with V5 kits easy,and 60fps,but its nice to hear it can do the same graphics as PC just at a lower HD resolution even on V4 dev kits i have to say.
Dev seems like bull TBH Says that it is running DX9 version which is impossible as DX9 is a MS developed API, a Nintendo console will never use it. Says that it has better particle effects, then uses Ambient Occlusion as an example, which is a shadowing technique nothing to do with particles... And says that by droping a 480p video feed which can just be a static image (which would take virtually no resources) will allow them to go from 720p at 30fps to 1080p which is 2.5x more pixels than 720p and 480p is just a 3rd of the number of pixels of 720p. Says they are not sure if they can turn of the video stream to the pad, yet the pad was optional. And a dev from THQ said that "it takes just a few lines of code to enable the Wii U pad". And then there are things like why would they let a lowly tester see a techdemo running on a console that is heavily NDAed. There is no reason to let a tester have access to that, and everything a tester sees is always NDAed. not to mention the original forum post has a troll face at the end...
I'm still not exactly sure what the Wii-U actually IS
I can see why. So far we have only Darksiders to really look forward to. I was really hoping to see what he have in store for games. Hopefuly, there are other publishers who is going to pick it up if this rumor is true.

All these games i'm hearing that are coming to the Wii U are making more impressed. If the Wii U is really badass, i might have to buy it when it come's out.
Yes it does but it's so so outdated this game cameout in 2006 was it and even the wiiu which i like by the way is running on an outdated card.
