commented on Unreal Engine 4 on Wii U? 'Hahaha no.'
The Wii U is only as powerful, supposedly, as the current gen (ps3, Xbox 360). It really isn't a next gen console, kind of like how the Wii wasn't a next gen console (in terms of graphical horsepower). Nintendo relies on innovation and catching the public eye. That's why the Wii succeeded. The same strategy is hard to replicate because a lot of intangibles went into making the Wii a success. The next PS and Xbox are steady-as-she-goes consoles: give them more power, a better online experience, and a traditional interface and they'll still remain as fixtures in the core gaming experience.
