Since Nintendo hasn’t made known the inner prowess of its upcoming console Wii U, developers have taken it upon themselves to guess the console’s power. Many have said it’s a tad more powerful than current-gen consoles, however Crysis developer Crytek believes Wii U is at minimum as powerful as Xbox 360.
“My opinion of the Wii U is very high,” Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told CVG. “It’s just that we didn’t have a business case unfortunately that justifies us making a game for 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.”
On the machine’s power, Yerli added: “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.”
