    Planed? What does the Wii U have to do with aircraft?

    What's the point of listing cancelled/previously rumored games?

    Crysis 3 was never ever planned. Crytek had tested their engine on the Wii U just for the sake of it, but they never had any plans to release it on the Wii U.

    In June last year this was said:
    "My opinion of the Wii U is very high," he 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," he added. "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."

    I was going to say Aliens but that is running on gearbox's engine or do they use middleware? Either way... it was due to the publisher not deciding to have it ported.. evidently it takes a lot more than 50k units to sell in order to start making money like it did during the GCN era..

    Yes, let's not do that.

    I thought he meant planed as in continuously shaving features off the games, so that they can run on the Wii U's measly CPU.

    Congratulations, you took the bait.
