Ubisoft Clarifies Reasoning For The Crew Skipping Wii U

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Ubisoft Clarifies Reasoning For The Crew Skipping Wii U

Honestly, at this point, I'd respect the developers more if they just said, "Because we don't want to."




8th gen predictions. (made early 2014)
PS4: 60-65m
WiiU: 30-35m
X1: 30-35m
3DS: 80-85m
PSV: 15-20m

Wii U owners have not bought the games, so this is the result of an ongoing problem.


And PS3 owners?

First of all I hope you know that the real reason for no wii u version is because 3rd party does not sell well on Nintendo systems. Now they said, they chose the 360 because it is closest to current gen systems in terms of architechture, unlike the ps3. They just included wii u with the ps3 in that statement to cover up the real reason.

Lazy devs do not want to learn WiiU´s console architecture. Also, they had 8 years to learn how to use the PS3, were you guys comatose all this time Ubi?

This isn't about lazyness or not knowing how to develop for a console.


The lack of a Wii U port is pretty obvious. The game would be lucky to sell 100k copies on the wii u. And most of its sales would be at bargin bin prices. Porting it over wouldn't be worth the cost.


The lack of a ps3 port is probably because they didn't have time to finish making the port on the ps3 without delaying the game and unlike the 360 they won't run into any issues if they make a late port for the ps3. If the 360 version of the game ends up selling well, I fully expect a ps3 version to eventually come out. If the 360 version flops, they will probably skip the ps3 version.



It's okay. With games like DriveClub and Project C.A.R.S, Playstation will have plenty of racers to go around. At least it's still coming to the PS4. Now had Ubisoft made some excuse as to why THAT version wasn't coming, then we can chalk it up to MS. LOL

The sad part is that most developers don't have the damn balls to say that!

Pretty obvious really. It wouldn't sell much so no point wasting time on it.

keep believing it.



TBH  Ubisoft is not lying. Why?


Because 360 is in fact the more similar last gen device. PS3 is completely different.  WiiU is part of the same gen as PS4 and X1 so by saying " The Crew is originally built for the new generation of consoles so when we made the decision to port it to the previous generation of consoles, we decided to focus solely on the platform closest to the new-gen's technical infrastructure, which is the Xbox 360."

Not making it for WiiU makes perfect sense since its current gen not last gen.




Only on platforms with paid online and PC where you can't sell used games. Coincidence?

Well, I don't care because the game doesn't seem to interesting. I was disappointed that Valiant Hearts wasn't on Wii U.
