id Software's John Carmack revealed he sees Nintendo's upcoming Wii U as a viable console for id Tech 5 based games:
Even though Nintendo Wii U is hardly a big step forwards compared to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it is a massive step for Nintendo and Mr. Carmack sees it as a step towards hardcore games and gamers.
"[Nintendo Wii U] should be a slam dunk to move over to Tech 5 games on there. We haven’t had that discussion yet as a company, but it seems technically like it’s a valid target, so I’m 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," said John Carmack, in an interview with Industry Gamers web-site.
