Epic states that UE4 games will ONLY cost twice as much as UE3 games. They say that like its a major selling point.

We already saw literally 100 development studios die last gen thanks to the dying "AAA" game model. Does ANYBODY actually think UE4 is a solution?

You can make fairly cheap games with UE. Not every game made with their engine has to be AAA (whatever that means). If the engine doesn't come to the Wii U, it will only be because no one is interested in making it happen, including Nintendo.

Wii U isn't attempting to be a PC though. Games have always been at the forefront. X1/PS4 on the other hand...
Yeah, that's a problem games had back then. You actually had to get good at them. - Mctias

Oh no, epic is going to force developers to make higher budget games
What will developers do???

Also, it was publishers that killed studios last gen. Gave unrealistic sales quotas and didn't market well.

AAA games has been around since 1994.
The development cost jump from snes to 64 was astronomical last time i checked...

Yeah, at this point it doesn't matter if PS4 sells 200 million units. It's going to be a bloodbath for all 3rd parties not named EA and Activision. This is going to be the most pathetic gen ever.
I'm really starting to think mods hate me. no...it's official now.
