So they are expecting for an NX announcement (even when Nintendo said oficially that is not going to happen this year) to release the game 1.5/2 years later, Because that totally worked with the old ports of ps3/xbx360 on WiiU, right? 

Maybe they are just extremely dumb then.

No NX announcement at E3, No mention of this year. See, studios would know before we do and it could happen behind the scenes. Christ.

They said several times that they are not going to speak about the console until 2016, Iwata confirmed a week ago that he only talked about it because he was afraid of the market thinking that Nintendo is gone mobile.

And even if something was happening behind the curtains (but they were talking about the e3, not anything behind the curtains), it would be a extremely dumb movement, because the console wouldn´t come out until December of the next year in the worst scenario, and most likely 2 years. How is that going to work? A 2 years old game that nobody would care about on 2017, who is going to buy that?? They didnt learn NOTHING about the WiiU old ports of games that are everywhere else but for 20$ instead of 60$ and with 0 hype because everybody has been playing the game for 2 years everywhere else?? Is that really a smart movement? Jesus.

"We could reach a fairly solid 30FPS but it might take a hell of a lot of work. On the other hand, about halfway through us finishing, Nintendo might announce a new console (I have zero knowledge on this BTW but I've heard 'rumours')."

Context much. half way through getting the game to run at 30fps, not halfway porting the whole damn game.

Please read the OP! Here's the next sentence.


Our work might just be the best thing that ever hit that new console in the driving sim genre So we're playing a waiting game at the moment and yes, economics do come in to it."

He is refering to the game as a whole.


No, he means halfway through optimising the game for a solid 30fps, they might go and announce the next console making all the optimisation pointless when they'd be better putting that resource into moving it over to the Wii U's successor instead.

Just because it's in the same paragraph, doesn't mean it means the same thing. The context of "halfway" was clearly at optimising the game. The game itself is done, the code is on Wii U, it runs like ass. Optimisation is the next process. They're currently evaluating whether it's worth doing it as the potential early reveal of a new console would basically null all the effort they would have to put in.



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

Hot damn, Ian dropping truth bombs like a mofo. He's doing the same thing that Plat/Bayo 2 dev did on twitter.



Thanks jlmurph!

Isn't it a more simplistic way they're not even halfway in finishing the Wii U version? I'm pretty sure it is. 

Edit.

Anyway, I'm dropping the topic and moving on.

Yes, because those that want the version they were promised are the same as port beggars for an exclusive.

EDIT for pedants

Where are these crowd funders who were promised a Wii U version? The backers of this project were offered cash. Not Wii U ports.

If that's the case, you might be on your way to getting fired =___=

its also not a cops job to be friendly he can chose to do so anyway tho.

If he would have said "its our job to NOT disappoint those guys" then he could get fired for not doing his job.



They should have done what everyone else did and never announced a WiiU version to begin with. Yikes, what a waste to think they'd go this far then get blasted for telling the truth. Ridiculous.



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

Yeah, we should be praising them for such an effort. Even if there is 0 proof of it, not a single picture.
