Crytek: Wii U is Minimum as Powerful as Xbox 360, Unannounced Wii U Game being Developed on CryEngine 3
Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has a very high opinion on the Wii U and doesn't understand the public's
Concerns in regards to the Wii U's horsepower has been running rampant ever since the console's announcement. And unless Nintendo showcases a graphically-impressive game, I don't think that's going to stop anytime soon.
This shouldn't be the case according to Crytek (Crysis franchise) CEO Cevat Yerli. In an interview with CVG, Yerli admits that his opinon of the Wii U is "very high," and adds that the console can run CryEngine 3. Not only that but there's even a game for the Wii U that's being developed on it!
It doesn't mean that CryEngine 3 doesn't run on Wii U - it actually runs beautifully. In fact, there actually is a game in development from a respected developer that we will be announcing. I've seen the game running and it looks really great.
Aside from that bombshell, Yerli states that he doesn't understand the public's concern with the Wii U and how it's supposed to be weaker than the consoles we have now.
From my perspective I do not understand the public's concerns that the Wii U is weaker than PS3 and 360...That I cannot see. From my perspective the Wii U is minimum as powerful as Xbox 360.
Well, there you have it, folks! Crytek debunks all that "Wii U is not really next-gen" talk that's been floating about. Now, the only thing we need is actual proof, no?
Do you believe Yerli's statements or is he just saying all this because a game's coming out on CryEngine 3 for the Wii U?
