PS4/XOne games are developed on hardware requiring Direct X 11 performance/capabilities. Wii U apparently doesn't meet the requirement.

Makes sense given that the Wii U's GPU is based on a Direct X 10 Radeon card.

Nintendo really need to start treating retro like Sony treats Naughtydog.

@mario2man who says they haven't retro said that had to decide what game to do first. They chose DK instead of Prime.

@mario2man I can def see Prime 4 already in development and having a release next year.

once again it's a case of Wii Vs 360 and PS3. Nintendo will do alright this gen. They won't "win" but come next gen

their hardware will be similar to that of Sony and Micrsoft because they'll need it to be.

Do you think thats the nail in the coffin for the Wii U? No third party support will surely kill the console this gen.

PS4 is not DX11 compatible. The hardware can handle the equivalents, like Wii U can (varying degrees, obviously), DX is MS only

Wii U's GPU is actually based on a DX11.0 compatible card, not that that matters, neither Wii U or PS4 run DX, its a red herring

The shaders are based on a DX11 based card, the rest is custom. It is perfectly capable of using the equivalents

Thanks for clearing that up. Good to hear! Now if only Nintendo can make developing on the Wii U worth the effort.

It is worth the effort, the launch lineup was 98% 3rd party and the console sold over 3M in two months.

Also, ports have only been taking a couple of months to get to Wii U, without changing the way the engines work

Then, more worth the effort! It's disheartening to see most 3rd party not trying hard enough and ignoring the system.

it's a double edged sword, they don't want to compete with 1st party, so Ninty launches without 1st party...

then when sales don't come through because the games the 3rd parties brought weren't good enough and late they blame Nintendo

then you have ballsy third parties who are used to getting paid off by Sony and ms that expect Nintendo to do the same

It's the excuse a lot of developers were giving at E3. There's obviously more to it, though.
