Skyrim is NOT a Unreal Engine game.

Your correct. It uses the "Creation Engine". There are still many other UE3 based games that WinRT can now port though. Its hard to make a AAA game for any single device, but when you can make an easy port, then we will see a lot more AAA titles hit mobile platforms (with WinRT). The big problem is the UI. Touch based FPS games just sux. Thats why I said WinRT has USB. You can hook up a mouse and keyboard and be happy!!!

But why? A mouse and keyboard defeats the whole thing (except for the full Win8 tablet, which should have a docking station.)

Tablet users aren't really looking for AAA games. The last thing they really want is Skyrim. They're more looking for quick games that are easy to learn, hard to master, good in short bursts and don't always require 100% of your concentration.

May that shift? Probably will shift. But, for the time being, Angry Birds, Tower Defenses, Where's My Water, and Words With Friends will dominate.
