Rein says he wasn't laughing at Wii U, points out UE3 critical success

Too Late Rein, you were laughing to it.

It's sad that he is trying to save face when many sites reported that he was indeed laughing at Wii-U

LOL_WUT2150d ago (Edited 2150d ago )

The damage has been done so, we can all pretty much put this behind us now. ;)

Before: Haha, you really think it can handle the power of UE4?!

After: Hey, UE3's nothing to laugh at, it sold well last gen, it as used for some great games.

pixelsword2149d ago

He needs to save face after it was reported that Mass Effect won't be using the Unreal Engine anymore.

I really respect Nintendo for their contribution to the gaming world although I' am not a big fan.
In 90s Nintendo and Sony really paved the way for the home consoles, if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be here in the gaming.

Poor get out argument but let's put it like this:

Samaritan, Elemental, Infiltrator. Wii U.


fatstarr2150d ago

I bet you if enough money is on the table the wiiu will run it.

dont let them bs anyone. smh the wiiu is a low mid tier gaming pc and the ps4 and nextbox are basically mid tier pcs.

the ps3/360 are not even ranked as the lowest of lowest ranked gaming pcs decimate that hardware.

DarkHeroZX2149d ago

lol Wii U isn't even close to low pc. It's only a notch above ps3.

die_fiend2149d ago

It's low mid tier gaming pc? And ps4 is mid tier. So there's not much difference in your eyes? Tell me some wii u games that look half as good as killzone or uncharted. According to your those aren't even the lowest ranking gaming pcs but they are currently still ahead of ninty's next gen efforts. It's really this simple: in terms of power of the console, Nintendo fell behind in a big way

Did you even read the article, no probably just read the title I am assuming. This is about him completely changing his story now.

"Rein spoke with Engadget and clarified his comment from the presentation, noting that it's totally possible to run Unreal Engine 4 games on Wii U. "You heard the stupid gaffe yesterday about the Wii U," he said. "If someone wants to take Unreal Engine 4 and ship a game on Wii U, they can! If they wanna ship an Unreal Engine 4 game on Xbox 360, they could make it happen."

So is his engine really not that impressive? Or he is just full of shit? In my eyes yes it isn't this impressive this time around especially if it will still run well on the PS3 and Xbox 360. I am not going to discredit what Unreal has done but this time around they are not the best in my eyes.

Maybe I am blind.

At this point it is laughable. Nintendo pitched hard at E3 about having third party support and so far major publishers are skipping it.

madpuppy2149d ago

He wasn't laughing AT the WiiU but, WITH it.

Blaze9292149d ago (Edited 2149d ago )

he has a right to laugh. It's his opinion, his question, his company. Who cares. Nintendo screwed up with their hardware yet again. No 3rd party support will be even further alienated.

"I was laughing at how the question only included the Wii U."

That makes absolutely no sense, and there isn't an ounce of funny in that question.

I think he's just tryna save face now lol.

Ck1x2149d ago

Agreed, this man is an idiot! That truly makes no sense at all and he knows that he was laughing at the WiiU, he just wasn't thinking about all the potential money he was screwing up with his mouth that's all... Everyone knows its the cool thing to do, by hating on Nintendo right now until its not when the sales from the WiiU turns around.

Williamson2150d ago

He came across as a jerk to me! If they don't like Nintendo then that's cool but at least act a little professional, instead of laughing it up like a little kid.

SilentNegotiator2149d ago (Edited 2149d ago )

I think after so many years of Nintendo consoles being a fairly terrible place to release third party games, a developer might have some inside jokes about Nintendo.

Just let it be. Unless Nintendo themselves are angry, who cares. You want the WiiU game pad, then buy it. You want a "next generation" console, then buy a PS4 or Xbox 723042305 with it.
