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...


Might??? They will. If you own a PS360 and or PC, your not spending hundreds of dollars just to play a game you could already play on your current system.

OT I think so, its not like a Ninty system never had a GTA GBA/DS. If i remember correctly the GC didnt get one because Ninty didnt want it or something.

Im curious though, why do people swear that PS360 owners will leave to go to Wii U?? that makes no sense. If you have one of those systems or even a PC. Who would spend hundreds of dollars to buy a system for games they can already buy on something they own?? Even if some of them do that, there is no assurance that they would even buy the Wii U version. Online, people have spent hours and money over the years on those services, especially xbox LIVE. Even if Ninty Network catches up to them in quality, they are still doing that, catching up. Millions of people are not just going to abandon services they spent so much time and money on. PS4/720, that will be a different story

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.


This is a very valid point! Take heed!

Yup, there is not much of an audience for bad and watered down ports on Nintendo platforms. Although I do think that this topic is about an equal version of GTA V on the Wii U, so his post completely misses the point.



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

But I guess Wii U SHOULD be a place for watered down ports - just like the PS360! Except for graphics, the Wii suffered from a lack of 3rd party support, so to get GTAV would be a big boost for the Wii U. But it's like you said; it has to be equal to the other versions - or better

Lets put aside our Ninty love and think. @bolded, makes no sense, for the forseeable future the 360 will still be the lead platform they develop for so it wont have watered down ports. They wont be ports at all. Now when PS4 720 come along im sure Wii U will become lead platform

if Rockstars dont want to; Nintendo will pay them to do it; because they want to get rid of "is a console just for kids and grandmothers".

so 100%

Maybe, really seems pointless when it'll sell like COD though, 1m on WiiU, 10 on Sony/MS machines each ...

like Chinatown!? GTA is not CoD

and i belive an important part of GTA audience is kids, not 7 years old, but after 9 or smth

CoD has terrible graphics on Wii and most people didn't like the gameplay too, GTA is not a shooter anyway



don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

The thing with Wii U as a lead platform for development is the tablet-like controller. You can throw all the maps and inventories and what-have-you on there, but that is just not possible (as far as we know) on the PS720. The U could actually suffer for having a different controller in that aspect...

Being in 3rd place never felt so good
