Ken Levine has no plans for Wii U, Valve does

With the Wii U's graphics horsepower revealed, developers have commented on the console.

In comments made exclusively to ZDF German television at E3, Ken Levine revealed that his studio Irrational Games had no concrete plans to develop for Wii U. His positive comments in a developer reaction video shown during Nintendo's E3 press conference were made solely as a gamer, not as a developer, Levine explained.

Gabe Newell, head of Valve Software (´Half-Life´, ´Left4Dead´), however, has plans for Wii U.

"Wii U seems to be a lot more powerful than the previous generation," he told Joystiq. "It sort of fits better into the scalability in terms of graphics performance and CPU performance, so I think it'll be a lot easier for us to fit it into our scalability model." Valve has yet to release any of its games on a Nintendo console, though Gabe told us, "We've always loved Nintendo." He also pointed out that Valve has been slowly transitioning from the PC to console counterparts, starting with Xbox 360 and more recently moving to the PlayStation 3 in a major way with Steam getting ported to Sony's console.

And it looks like Nintendo may be next, as Newell restated, "Now it's a lot easier to look at Wii U and have it fit within that framework."

Finally, Square Enix has committed itself to making the Wii title ´Dragon Quest X´ also compatible with Wii U.

Waste of time having him in the video then really. They only have bioshock and system shock. Who cares really.

Valve on the other hand, thats good news :)

"Initially, the Wii U's second screen was a separate device that was to be placed on a table, not attached to the controller."

"they only have bioshock and system shock"

Those games are great. Nintendo isn't going to be lacking if irrational doesn't support them but it would have been nice to have bioshock infinite on nintendo's new console.

Plus, look at the e3 previews and impressions for bioshock infinite, people have nothing but good things to say about it.

3x core broadway 2 at 1.ghz would see no more power and produce no more heat than wiis cpu yet would be at very least 10 x the wiis cpu then ad improvements and a massive edram l3 catch it could be 20 x wiis cpu

gpu could be 800mhz giving a perfect 2-1 balance next gen powerpc 32bit cores have out of order execution and 5 instruction per clock VS x360s core that is inline and 2 instructions per clock ad a level 3 edram high bandwidth catch presto a great little cpu

@ ANON

Yea that's why capcom is cutting back support for the 3ds and wii.


you are a dumbass, go away.

I just bought a 3ds and I'm enjoying playing ocarina of time but the only thing the 3ds is disrupting is nitendo itself. It's overpriced as shit, i paid 327 USD for it in singapore. There is only 1 game worth playing and the nintendo e shop just launched and months of waiting and it's a complete mess.

Nintendo may have sold boatloads with the wii but they are so far from being worthwhile that it's not even funny. The wii u looks pretty cool but all nintendo did was confuse the shit out of people at e3.

Take off the fanboy blinders and see things for how they truly are. The wii is a joke, nintendo is going to struggly with the 3ds and wii u and sony might be the first company to tap into nintendo's death grip on the handheld market with the vita.

People are buying games like crazy on the android and iphone, nintendo is so out of touch with how online services should work.

Sony is offering a handheld that NO ONE can hold a candle to, and they're offering at the same price point as nintendo's outdated hardware.

It's going to be extremely interesting this holiday season.

jerry said...

oh and the 3ds is 400 dollars in singapore. do a conversion of that. I can buy a ps3 for cheaper than that.

The 3ds is neat but it's such a rip off, it's so insanely overpriced that it's not even funny.

Also, the wii u is only gonna support 1 controller. The system has the capability to stream to two controllers, but nintendo won't touch that. The system will ship with one controller because nintendo is extremely price conscience. Think about how much that controller will cost, I bet it will be AT LEAST 100 dollars. They aren't going to want to seem like they're price gouging people by forcing to to buy another controller in order to play games. That's why it's called the wii u, it's focused on single player experiences.

Also, you're taking crazy pills if you think the wii u will sell as many units at the wii. Soccer moms and grandparents don't care about nintendo's new console.

I'll make a video on youtube eating my own shorts, literally, if i'm wrong. Put this post in your favorites and hold me to it.

I have the same thoguhts but I wont conclude to that until I know full details about the system....the total picture. And I would like to know how they are going to market it. But yeh I dont see those people who maybe bought a console for their first time repurchasing but who knows.

And BTW System Shock 2 is 10+ years old and they have Bio Shock. Although they have talent they just dont put out enough games to be considered hhighly valuable.

theres no such thing as casual over here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>hardcore over there, real life doesn’t work like that , you provide for the mass market mc Donald’s is about burgers, but you get salads and veggy burgers and chicken there that could be classed as casual mc donalding….there is no separation there all one thing A CONSUMER BASE that you provide to in retuurn for money,its really not that difficult to work out nintendo is a video game company and we are customers nothing more nothing less the hardcore thing is a marketing myth that only teenagers with fan isues believe

hardcore used to mean at the cutting edge of something it no longer means that its only idiots now days calling themselves core

COD ISNT HARD core its casualized version of core a arcade experience with heavy control gimping yet ps3 and x360 fans refer to playing cod with auto aim core gaming this is just stupid as its far from a core experience old cod was core new cod isnt…..

everyone knows that mose allows true aim and precision but as soon as wii came along this fine control became known as spraying by ps3 and x3600 fans and tried to hail it as casual totally failing to see this as mouse pointing as its on the pc but no desk top required or steep learning curve…

theres no curser in COD x360 ps3 for a reason its not needed as the games software gimped so aiming by stick is easier and auto mated

in the pc AND wii versions of cod you aim to the mm by a center courser and the cross hair is spray radius

on ps3 x360 the spray radius is your aim point its like 20 x bigger than pc and wii

SO WHO D’casual gamer the 1mm mouse precision player or the aim assisted auto aim no curser player

il go with pc and wii as core duno about you………..
