Kids love guns, blood and sex

OT: it will easily be a success if they just released a 2D Mario on launch as well
I have no idea if it will come or not and I don’t know what percentage to give it but I hope it does. Not that I would buy it but my brother will for sure

Which is also why they buy games like CoD: Guns, blood and teabagging :P

Which is an extra $60 million (basing it on the weak dollar here!) in revenue for what is unlikely to be all that much work (recalling that the Darksiders guys said took a 4-man team 3 weeks or so to get Darksiders II up and running), and even the initial work serves as an investment in knowledge of how to port to the Wii U later.

The other difference being that Wii CoD's are feature-stripped and not worth buying. Presumably GTAV would have relative feature parity (with the possibility of more Microsoft dlc moneyhatting), and therefore more reason to sell more in line with other platforms' versions.


Unless Rockstar, as a Western developer with some sense of pride, chooses to forego debasing itself by working on a Nintendo platform at all in the 8th gen. Especially after Nintendo and Nintendo fans spit on their masterwork that was Chinatown Wars



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

If it's a fairly easy port, wouldn't one million more than justify the effort?

Well, if it's a weak port with Playstation 2 graphics and no effort behind it then yeah, it won't sell more than 1 million units.

Don't think so. Lego City Stories could be the Nintendo GTA.

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


God I hope Nintendo gets GTAV!!! Not that I'm buying it, but it would really benefit the Wii U!

The question is if Rockstar wants it on the Wii U? Wii U doesn't have a user base, whatsoever, so the sales aren't guarented... Ppl might just as well buy it to PS360...



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Why not?

I spit on Grand Theft Auto. I'd rather eat glass than mess with an amateur game.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

You forgot the 0,000000000001% probability (because the zero risk doesn't exist, I'm afraid). No seriously the question is : can you expect there will be any audience for GTAV on WiiU? Just to remind you that Crystal Dynamics excluded a WiiU Tomb Raider although Underworld was ported to Wii (because they thought there could be a market). This is not about power, it's about the audience you address to.
