Carmack: id-Tech 5 is a slam dunk for the Wii U
Id Software's technology boss John Carmack seems to be incredibly enthusiastic about producing games using their new Tech 5 engine for the Wii U.
Carmack said that the Tech 5 would work very well on Nintendo's new home console but that id had not had any proper discussions about producing titles for the Wii U yet.
He explained: "It should be a slam dunk to move over to Tech 5 games on there. We havent had that discussion yet as a company, but it seems technically like its a valid target, so Im always happy to go ahead and get a new box in and see what it takes to bring it up and see the pros and cons of the choices they made. I think they probably made a fairly intelligent decision with the Wii U."
Carmack added that the new tablet controller had more promise than either Kinect or Move adding: "I think there may be more good uses of that [Wii U tablet] than [there are for] the current generation with Kinect and Move... theres clearly a subset of games for which things like that are appropriate for."
