    Epic said that the platforms for UE4 are still unconfirmed.

    Too many idiots misquoting this:

    "can you hint if the Wii u will be able to run Unreal Engine 4."
    "No, at GDC Mike Capps said Wii-U will be Unreal Engine 3."

    He's saying he can't confirm anything yet, not even hint at it and is backing up the fact that Wii U is running on UE3, something we already know.

    Sigh, If anyone here actually read the tweet... he was asked if he could give a hint, Geoff replied with a no and said that UE3 was confirmed last year.
    UE4 is a scalable engine very capable of running on the Wii U if hardware rumors are to be believed. It will even be capable of running on tablets ffs.

    Can a mod change the title?

    I really really doubt these rumors of the Wii U not supporting said engine it just seems like a stupid move!

    I have faith UE4 will run on Wii U, I just don't have faith you can mod it to specific extreme, don't except ME3 to run on Wii U natively or anything around that

    Personally I believe Wii U can run UE4, but I won't be surprised if it can't.

    Didn't Nintendo tweak the Wii U?

    For fucks sake, who gives a damn?! I swear, all oh these hardcore graphics whores are getting on my nerves. I could care less if Nintendo goes head to head with Sony and Microsoft ever again. If the Wii-U ended up being the Wii of next Gen, I would be perfectly fine. I really really hope that Nintendo spites everyone's and continue their current home console path

    According to inside info on dev kits, they have beefed it up since last years E3. Improvements to RAM and GPU mostly.

    I don't think they have messed with the CPU chips, always been a 4 core.

    Err just so you know. Geoff confirmed that he didn't mean to say "Wii U can't run UE4", he was just repeating what was said at GDC.

    Well, a good GPU is needed to accompany a good CPU. This is what I always believe.

    Op got be feeling a bit silly right now after trying so hard to promote this.
    I have a feeling it will run it because they haven't outright denied it from
    the get go or could be wishful thinking on my part. :P

    Even I got some fear that if it can't run the engine in some way, we may miss
    out in some games.
