Locked: UPDATE Project Cars fanpage: “If People Want a Race Sim on Wii U They will Buy it, Even in One More Year”

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - UPDATE Project Cars fanpage: “If People Want a Race Sim on Wii U They will Buy it, Even in One More Year”

- Well it won't have the same marketing $$$ spent on it so long after the others

- People wanting it on the Wii U may have other systems like the PC will just go PC instead

- The hype for the game has diminished for Wii U gamers, many put off by this treatment

- The hype for the game will diminish further once it has been out so long on other systems "newness factor missing"

- Many who are not into sim racing would have bought it anyway to support a "real" effort" for the system, reduced now

- Poor sales compounded by these reasons will harm future development, which is a serious consiquence of all this, Wii U owners should be pissed 

Really the big one is the lack of Marketing $$$, much like what will happen to Watchdogs as it's so much later, the game will just be released into relative silence compared to earlier versions

what kind of logic is that? the game was announced as PC PS360 and Wii U and was funded by users of thsoe systems. Whether they are last gen or not is irrelevant as they still funded the project. Not even sure why you brought that up.

My point is Wii U owners are still getting the game, so lets not act that they got screwed over, yes it sucks they have to wait but thats what it is. PS360 owners got a rawer deal and they arent complaining

Your logic is not welcome in dreamland :(

Nice to see you taking the developers side on this.

I'm taking their side too. They've been developing this game since well before the Wii U launched and watched it struggle from the get-go, knowing full well their game is probably going to flop like many of the other third party releases on Wii U. Yet, they've remained firm in keeping it coming. This game has been in development longer than any confirmed title, yet it's never been a question of whether it will be canceled, and up until now, Slightly Mad has had nothing but positive things to say regarding it the Wii U and their port for the console.

You can't blame them for securing funding from a major publisher, either. They're essentially an indy studio releasing a big-budget game that will be competing with the likes of Drive Club, Forza and Gran Turismo on most consoles, and fighting just to be relevant to the audience of another. That's an uphill battle on every front.

To anyone who planned to get the game for Wii U, shut the hell up and wait a few months; it's not going to kill you. If the last few months are anything like the first two years, then I can promise you that you will still be getting one hell of a game, or at least a game on par with other consoles. There will be plenty to play in the meantime.

By the way, I never planned on gettng Project CARS. I've never been a fan of realistic racing sims. But if I was, this news wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

The issue isn't whether its true or false.

This is a matter of tact. Blantant insult of your consumers is never warranted regadless of the circumstances.

I never said anything about true or false. I'm telling other Wii U owners to get a grip and put themselves in SM's shoes.

Because those are last gen systems. Should Nintendo fans not complain at all then and accept this? I don't think so.

And you think those PS360 people will not eventually get PS4/Xboxone?

I'm not even sure why you are justifying this delay and how it was done. Anyone who tries to downplay it is just accepting this kind of treatment. This isn't the first time the Wii U version of a third party game was treated as second rate too, but who cares since its the Wii U right? XD



Estelle and Adol... best characters ever! XD

We finally agree on something.

"Company Overview
Welcome to the Project CARS Facebook Fan Page.
http://forum.wmdportal.com/showthread.php?2650-Facebook-page-for-Project-C.A.R.S.
Ian Bell and SMS Team are known for having developed SHIFT and SHIFT 2 : Unleashed - FOR and ACCORDING TO the desires of Electronic Arts -, but they have also committed GTR2 and GT Legends, better known in the simulation world."

Unless I'm misreading something this doesn't seem to be a statement from te developers themselves, and this is actually a fan page for Project Cars.

Do you think every one those dozens of millions of PS360 people will get a PS4/X1 within the first couple of years? Late adopters are getting screwed. At least us Wii U owners are still getting the game on the console we own.



This game will do terribly on XB1/PS4 due to Drive Club,Forza Horizon 2 and The Crew this holiday season. They delayed the game on the one system where they'd have no competition this holiday season. Now they're acting a bit arrogant about the situation so no they're sabotaging their own chances when this game DOES release on Wii U.

Not a very smart decision on their part

Yeah but because of what is happening, sales will be lower, it will affect future games coming on the system, Watchdogs is in the same boat, it's coming but at what cost, anyway if people dont get that this is a vicious cycle that effects the future of games coming, then I don't know what else to say

You never know if the people ps3/360 owners that funded for this game already have a PS4 or XBONE, because people that fund these types of stuff are mostly the hardcore gamers, people that would get a new console right away, so we can't use that as an excuse, because we do not know the situaution.

Also, are you sure PS3/360 owners didn't complain when it was announced that it got cancled?
