According to a new report, developer DICE has a Wii U dev unit, but aren't interested in porting Battlefield 3 to the console yet.
. The " next gen engine in the current gen " should be able to jump to the Wii U with out much trouble tho we are still waiting for some " REAL " console footage from 360/ps3. Down to 8 weeks or so and still nothing...O_o With all these devs taking a wait and see attitude with Nintendo, you have to wonder what is going on over there??? Also mentioned in the write up... " the 250 member DICE development team "... ...Wow...those are some big numbers. I think Infinity Ward, the version that made MW 1 & 2 had under or around 100 people. I hope it sells well. With Popcap at around 400+ people and these guys at 250, their could be some lay offs very soon at EA...hope I'm wrong. btw..I don't consider Jimmy Fallon as REAL footage. I want to see the tank roundabout and the other pre-E3 footage on consoles. I guess EA-Dice are waiting till the last couple of weeks to reveal the...um...TRUTH. ;)
And why do you care? It's obvious by all your anti-BF3/DICE/EA trolling rants that you are not getting the game. So, why do you care if it is or isn't coming to the WiiU? Also, why do you want to see other console footage? So, you can troll and rant on those threads as well? Please, stay with your beloved COD. You actually turn people off to MW3 with your immature, no facts rants.
Why should they care about a console that isn't even launched yet? There is no gurantee the console will do well. Also there is currently a VERY small user base on Nintendo's platforms that would care for a BF game. Dice would just be wasting their time developing their games on a Nintendo platform.
LMAO Owned... On Topic: Wasnt BF3 one of the games Nintendo showed to be coming to the Wii-U??? This is why you cant believe shyt until the system has playable games...that goes for any upcoming system not just the Wii-U Besides who is going to wait an entire year for a game you can get this October??
"Wasnt BF3 one of the games Nintendo showed to be coming to the Wii-U??? " They were just talking about the possibilities. It was an easy way to promote their game. It was never confirmed.
Inside_out You have some issues regarding your bipolar state of mind..lol Last time I checked you're the biggest COD fanboy in this site..
Here you go about the 14:30 mark they show battlefield 3... granted he did say imagine.... So i guess according to dice we will have to Imagine for quite sometime.... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I've known this already for awhile, why waste man hours to get the game working on a console that not alot of people will buy at launch? They'll wait till more people actually buy the console, these companys are all about the Cash
Game engine has to be modified for WiiU. If you don't know the specs its kinda hard to tweak it. Just give it some time.
They'll Probally do what EA wants them to do.
if wii u hardware was on par with modern high end pcs(not enthusiast level pcs with gtx590s and 6990s by the way but rather just single high end gpus like gtx570/580 or amd hd 6950/6970) they'd obviously be interested (their pc gameplay demos where running of single gtx 580s by the way). looks like its NOT, it would obviously destroy ps3 and 360 in the hardware department though but will still be no match for current pc hardware.
I'm assuming they're not interested yet because it would be ridiculously stupid to dedicate resources towards porting it to a fourth platform when they're already crunched for time as it is. If EA thinks it's worthwhile, it will get done. Considering they're spear heading Wii U third party support, I'd say it would be a fair guess to assume it's going to happen sooner or later.
I thought Wii U is 5x more powerful than 360/PS3?..
No, that was 50% more powerful, not 5X more.
Noone knows if its 5 times or .5 yet. Nintendo is hiding the spec sheet. IBM Watson tech in it + AMD GPU of some kind at least on par with ATI 4800 series. So that equates to at least 2.5 times more powerful then PS3/X360 GPU if true, but without knowing the CPU specs its difficult to say how much so the whole package is worth power wise.
Pwn... Feel sorry for the future Wii U owners but hopefully Nintendo makes a comeback next-gen and makes DICE want to work for them.
The Nintendo WII is dead long time ago, But what about the WII-U ? the wii u is powerfull like the XBOX 360 and PS-VITA
yawn, wheres xbox 3 and ps4 news?
funny...the title of this article clearly states that it's something about the Wii U, yet you came in here anyways looking for news on the next xbox and playstation...o_o
E3 2012. Only like 10 months away. I am doubtful anything more will pop up until its close to then.
the title should read n4g hates nintendo cause no where in the article does it say dice is not interested in Wii U. it said they aint interested in porting battlefield 3. which makes sense cause that comes out this year and Wii U comes out next year.so they will probably bring out the next battlefield on Wii U.man the haters take any shot they can at nintendo.even making a b.s. title to make it look like dice said that.thats something my 5 year old little brother would do if he didn't like something!!
Title is misleading. It says they aren't interested in porting BF3. They never said they weren't interested in developing for wiiu. Why would they get a dev kit if they weren't interested?
Hey people, EA owns Dice. EA decides what systems they want they're games on, not the people that are developing it. Now raise your hands if you think EA won't put battlefield on the Wii U...
BF3 is one of Dice's biggest and most popular franchise.So, lets say, If Dice decides to port BF3 to the Wii U it could means less profit for them; simply because most gamers would avoid getting the PS3/xbox360 BF3 version dued to the frame-rate drop(30fps) The Wii U hardware should be able to run BF3 at 60fps in full HD..... On another note, it could start an out cry among gamers as to why the PS3/360 couldn't run the same amount of frame-rate at the Wii U version.
Miyamoto Says Wii U Won’t Be Much More Powerful Than Rival Consoles http://mynintendonews.com/2... anyways im not interested in a nintendo system dice should just focus on whats out there right now and thats what they seem content on doing.
@Farsendor1 "Miyamoto Says Wii U Won’t Be Much More Powerful Than Rival Consoles" If that was true than why would Nintendo result to too much secretly about the Wii U specification if it won't be much More Powerful Than Rival Consoles. Well it seems to me that Nintendo is just trying to throw everyone off regarding the Wii U specs.
Your answer lies in with the secrecy of the wii's specs. Meaning it's going to be weak!!
just copied and paste what that article stated. i have never talked to the guy he could be trying to get the public to underestimate the wii u. t whatever im not going to buy wii u just cause they say its going to be good im actually going to wait on the games this time.
@Otheros00 Just like they did with the Wii. Your answer lies in with the secrecy of the wii's specs. Meaning it's going to be weak!! jacksheen0000 Nintendo designed the Wii to attracts casual gamers. The Wii U is a different story simply because Nintendo has said out of their own mouth that their Next console designed to attract hardcore gamers. So if Nintendo want to accomplish their goal, they better be packing some high tech sh*t under the Wii U hood . Right now Nintendo is back in to a corner dued to the huge loss in their market share. So I don't think Nintendo is crazy enough to release another gaming console that is weak.
with all the possibilities wiiu offers all third parties will be on board...its just that nintendo is keeping secrets even from developers.
