Nintendo Wii U gets Unreal Engine 3 tech

Told you it would do AR.
I got a warning for saying what most people have probably thought.

I predicted the Wii U controllers use.

This is getting better and better as news keeps filtering through.
I think the naysayers might end up looking silly.

This seems very interesting. The game engine was used to show the capabilities of the Xbox360 and PS3, so that means the Wii U has to be at least similar spec as the other 2 consoles

Thems that watch Eastenders are more suicide cases than naysayers.

I'm not being sarcastic, but if this is Ninty matching their competitors, they've a hell of alot of catching up to do, not just in the online stakes but in multi-media delivery; and its competitors products that already provide these services are already on the shelves. And if its to get the Unreal Tech, its needs the games to match; the original Wii for all its innovation still produced no core competative alternative from Nintendo or any outside studio to match the likes of Uncharted, Halo, Gears of War, God Of War, etc. No GTA? No Skyrim or Portal 2? I'm not writing it off before its out but lets just say theres a long road ahead...

Unreal 4 has been in development since 2003, with the xbox and ps3 not yet announced, I would imagine those 2 are holding back for that maybe as its expected 2012 -2018 which would kind of fit in with their life spans. The controller is impressive but whats the price on repairing one of them when you drop it? The original Wii always seemed to me to be good ideas with the hardware but poor software - other than the inevitable Mario revamps, but hopefully with Unreal 3, they will atlast get some stuff worth playing

So basically the wiiu will get the games 6 months to a year after they have already been released and played by pretty much everyone who wanted it?

Sounds like a good plan nintendo..
