[Ars] DICE: Battlefield 4 engine won’t run on the Wii U - Page 4

post #31 of 82
Lol why are you guys even talking about a AAA fps title on a console when we have PC wink.gif, I would never play an fps on the console, playing an fps game with a controller is like operating someones brain with oven mitts on.

how can it not run? from the trailer i have seen it looks like another COD for Battlefield series, same old rehashed bf3 with slightly improved lighting. If ps3 and xbox can run it why not WII; i guess there maybe licensing issues etc

You should have read my previous comment.

It can run it - EA is just spiteful, that's all. Against false but popular opinion, the Wii U is faster then ps3/360

I've researched this a bit, since I'm a hardware geek like most people on this forum, and it looks like the GPU on the WiiU is nice upgrade over the 360 and PS3. That's no surprise, as it's 7 years newer. What is a surprise is that the CPU actually is less powerful in some experts analysis and the comments of developers. This has been attributed to the quest for lower TDP and keeping the same CPU architecture for ease of programming.

Whatever the case, I'm surprised that with their massive war chest from the success of the Wii, Nintendo didn't come out with something far more powerful.

Yes, that'll be it. EA, a global PLC and profit seeking corporation won't invest in a Nintendo title because of "spite".

That must be it, makes sense.

Ah, because it's clearly some magical game engine that is coming to current gen and can't run on a system with more gpu horsepower and a cpu within the same league as the ones it's going to?

That must be it, makes sense.

So what is the reason then?......

Doesn't matter how much GPU or PSU power you have... it's the synergy of the system... controls, processing power, memory, interfaces, programming styles. Hardware isn't the be all and end all.

Also the Wii U only really has a better GPU from what I understand? It seems to have a less powerful CPU, which seems particularly unhelpful on a physics heavy title.

It's likely a licensing issue having to do with Origin. Nintendo is notoriously territorial about that sort of thing. It seems highly improbable that WiiU hardware isn't capable of running Frostbite 3. FB3 is more than just the uber-pretty 4k screenies we've been seeing - it has a low end as well, which we'll see on PS3 & XBOX 360.
