Mark Rein explains why he laughed at Wii U, says other devs could still utilize the UE4

"I just laugh at the question...Unreal Engine 4, we're not PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or Wii U. It's next-gen technology. That's what we're aiming for. The truth is, if a developer wanted to take an Unreal Engine game and put it on Wii U, they could. Unreal Engine 3 is kicking ass on Wii U. The best games on Wii U are made on our technology. What more do you want from us?" - Mark Rein

Am I the only one that seriously doubts that Rein would have laughed if someone in the audience asked if UE4 could be on PS3/360?

They'll prolly fire a CEO and be on the brink of going bankrupt by fiscal years end anyway.

You could post a random Epic Games game screenshot and it would be hard to tell which one it is.

Then again, all they have developed the last decade is Gears of War... All ridiculously overmuscled men.
On that note, it took ages before 3rd party Unreal 3 games lost that overmuscled look. Ugh.

You're probably not the only one, he would have though. Unreal Engine 4 is made for next-gen consoles, and when it comes to hardware the Wii U is only slightly above the Xbox 360 and PS3 (except for the CPU). It wouldn't be able to do much more than Unreal Engine 3 can already do on Wii U. And even the PS4 can't handle it as well as high-end PCs can. (Just compare the PS4 tech demo to the PC one)

If you hate the guy because of this, stop looking for things to be pissed about.

Welcome Mark Rein to the Nintendo Haters Blacklist. Unfortunately you are not on the top spot; that spot is cemented by Michael Pachter

So many developers still shunning nintendo and their fans for absolutely no reason other than pure spite and I sincerely hope each and every single one of them go down

I'm pretty sure Mark Rein would laugh even harder if you asked him about UE4 on PS3/360. He's notorious for only caring about power, and PS3/360 don't satisfy him anymore.

Meh, it's an engine, not worth getting upset when I can use that time and mood to play a game, whether it uses UE or not. Doesn't change my stance that he shouldn't have laughed, or my opinion if he ever supports Nintendo, though.

You aren't alone on this at all. It's getting old honestly.

Err, Unreal Engine 4 doesn't run on iPhone or Firefox, Unreal Engine 3 does. Same for Wii U.

Rein is obviously jealous that Nintendo can make games a BILLION times more fun than the Unreal's junk. Seriously, the Unreal Engine is kinda mediocre out of the box and needs heavy modification before it can actually work good. Stuff like Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands have had it changed so drastically it might as well not be the UE3 anymore.

From seeing the tech demos of UE4, I'd laugh at the idea of it running on Wii U too :lol:
It's not going to run on 360 or PS3, the Wii U is marginally more powerful, no surprise it won't come to it.

So many of you commenting make me laugh.

Since the GameCube days, I've been quiet content in buying a Nintendo system for Nintendo games. For all the other amazing games I've played them on PC or 360 and that will continue into the next generation as it has been for the last two.

Where has it been stated UE4 will run on current iPhone/iPad?
UE3 runs on iPhone/iPad, no word on UE4

if western developers could make money on wiiU, then they would.
you guys sound silly saying these guys were jealous of the wii's success.
money defies all biases with large companies.

there is only one party responsible for pushing
western third parties away:
Nintendo.
this is their paradigm. this is nothing new. this is Nintendos pattern.
it's not reins job to cort Nintendo. it's the other way around.
we are all responsible for the way we are treated.
we teach others how we are to be treated.
it's Nintendo fault many many others choose to pass and mock the big N.
This isn't some conspiracy against Nintendo. This is business as usual.
wiiU isn't next gen to dice, epic and other successful developers.
you can call wiiU anything you want, but it's not getting the frostbite or U4 engine.
"next gen" by reins definition is what matters. not yours.
if next gen in terms of being a direct x11 machine is what the bar is,
than wiiU is not next gen.
I don't wanna hear about unity. unity games are shovel.

I'll send all of you a sticker than says "next gen" so you can put it on your wiiU.

I'm going back to need for speed wiiU.
incredible game.

learn to play multiple systems if you want to truly game.
stop being dogmatic and myopic.
no one likes fan boys.

I believe Kevin frequently plays his Xbox 360 and PS3.

He just explained himself. Unreal Engine 4 isn't coming to any "current-gen" consoles because they can't run it to its full capacity. Yes that includes the Wii U, since it's technically just a small step above PS3 power.

Kevin (Rawmeat Cowboy) does play other systems, including his beloved iPad, but he's a Nintendo fanboy at heart.

The sad part is that developers have been doing this since the Nintendo 64 was released which sucks.
