Nintendo fans, get ready to be amazed as Cevat Yerli announced that CryEngine 3 will power Nintendo’s next-generation console. That’s right. Wii U will be powered by CryEngine 3. This is the second high-end game engine that has been confirmed for Wii U, given the fact that Batman: Arkham City was showcased at Nintendo’s conference (which basically means that Unreal 3 Engine will be compatible with Wii U).
“Crytek’s support for Wii U is definitely going to happen. We aren’t showing it but we are pretty much running it already.”
Cevat also revealed that Crytek’s attempts to expand its business to even more platforms.
“We are expanding in many ways, and some of that is more announced than others. Kinect is major driver for future platforms as well, so Kinect support is important. Having basic Kinect support in the CryEngine is one thing, but I’m talking about really supporting it deeply. CryEngine is going to have deep support. Then there are other efforts towards supporting mobile and tablets, which we can only say we are working on. How far we have gone and what we mean is something I can’t say more about now.”

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
