Got Your Pinch Of Salt Ready?

Retailer listings for unreleased games should never really be taken at face value - they're prone to mistakes and errors, and have led to many red faces in the past. However, there's sometimes an element of truth in them as well, and we imagine that many people are crossing their fingers that this is the case with Swedish retailer CDON's listing for the Wii U version of Grand Theft Auto V.

Given the fact that CDON isn't exactly a well-known force in the field of video game retail, it might be prudent to hold back those feelings of elation, but it's not as unlikely a scenario as you might imagine.

First up, Nintendo has relaxed its stance on 'mature' games over the years, and even permitted Rockstar to release GTA: Chinatown Wars on the DS.

Secondly, it's highly likely that many third party publishers are eyeing the Wii U with interest, and may have already begun porting over forthcoming games for release on the system. Why? Because they don't want to be caught with their trousers down if Wii U repeats the Wii's success and becomes 2013's hottest ticket.

Keep this in the 'rumour' bucket for now, but we personally don't think GTA V on Wii U is as far-fetched as many would have you believe.

Here's a screengrab of the listing:

Monster Hunter will make Nintendo the winner in the East. This game would make them the Winner in the West.

Don't fight it people, embrace it!

1. It won't come.
2. Even if this comes, Wii U won't win anything as most of the userbase is in PS360 already.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


A multiplat will make them winner in the West? C'mon Spurge, you were told to make better threads when you came back



Swedish retailers should definitely not be trusted. About a dozen stores listed Red 3DS units even before the Blue and Black ones were released.



I don't see it happening, honestly - Rockstar really don't like Nintendo very much

I don't think that source is accurate, but I don't see it as a big deal either.

Black Ops 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 are the biggest third party releases of 2012 and both are on Wii U.

Grand Theft Auto V wouldn't be a shock. It's an easy 1 million (WW shipped) for Rockstar to cash in on, and on these mega-budget titles, every million counts.

Nintendo themselves is setting the pace that the Wii U is not just for family-friendly content with Ninja Gaiden 3 and Bayonetta 2 published by them in-house, third parties shouldn't feel like there has to be certain types of content that can't be on Wii U.

Fact is if Wii 1 could've ran GTAIV without huge compromises, it probably would've gotten a version.

Now I was told not to make "What games do you wish to have on the wii U elimination game thread" I can make opinion threads. You know it is true, you just enjoy being argumental.

 

This is like the 5th time we have heard this rumor, so why not? How many times do you hear a rumor before it comes true? Lol, Miyamoto san has been working on pikmin 3 for years, it will never come out. Boom! In yo face Sal. Here it comes.

 

This is a Rumor. Also since it is on the Wii U, which is more powerful than the current HD twins why wouldn't Rockstar (Their name on the line) not want to give the Wii U version a little boost? Starting a year earlier has its advantages as well as disadvantages.

 

I guess we will see who was right when this comes to the Wii U. ^_^

Well this is silly, none of this rant pertains to your comment that a multiplat will make them a winner in the West, I never contested whether or not the game will come to WiiYoo. Step up your game and focus Spurgeypoo! Quality posts!

EDIT got damn you reply fast



A bit off topic maybe but. Checked the hardware and they reduced the price by 40% for release otherwise it would cost 4999kr which is about 500 euros. Thats quite expensive.
