I think Wii U has something to show off its graphical ability (with the game like Crysis 3)...Maybe Aliens: Colonial Marines or Far Cry 3 on Wii U will be able to satisfy some gamers...

I wonder if 3rd party titles will be slow to appear on the wiiU due to this reason: when the console is new, the controller is really going to be a focal point, and if your game doesnt really take advantage of it, you might get negative press for 'under-utilization' or being 'lazy' or for 'not being able to adapt' etc...

And games like crysis3 dont really need something like the wiiU controller, so if anything, its extra work for crytek for something that wont really add anything to the core game experience, and theyre bound to be criticized along the way for it. Maybe crytek just doesnt want to bother for now.

Look at fifa and mass effect 3... Actively trying to integrate the wiiU controller functionality into their games; theyre not just a port.

I think another issue is that controller leaches performance from the GPU and CPU. Developers like Crytek love to get every bit of power out of a system to make the game the prettiest they can. I don't think Crytek would be too happy knowing that their Wii U edition of Crysis 3 looks worse than the rest because of a controller.
