Hope for Wolfenstein: The New Order on Wii U?

Check out what Pete Hines, a person involved with the project, had to say when asked about a Wii U version...


It's good that there's a chance, but why are we seeing this trend of keeping the Wii U version secret? Why is it okay to announce 360/PS3, but not another console that's currently on the market? Thanks to Amber for the heads up.

Is it possible it's embargoed until E3, or a 3rd party oriented Nintendo Direct? I agree it's annoying, regardless.

Well... The Wii U is actually the first "this-gen" console ;)


Apart from that I think 3rd parties are really being stupid. Release games on it and the console will sell better. And not half or quarter-assed versions either. Seriously, no lobby in Injustice? WTF? Make games, understand the system and stop whining!

I think "Will __ come to the Wii U?" and all similar articles should be banned. It's creating unrealistic expectations, and it's highly clear what third parties think of the Wii U at this point.

Outside of retro styled indie games, it's pretty much being ignored wholesale. And Nintendo doesn't seem to give a shovel so I'm wondering why we're still torturing ourselves wondering if any support is actually going to show up.

@ZS

People need to know how they get fucked by 3rd parties with NO reasons (and it's a Ninti console is not a reason enough). And Nintendo care, they need to sell consoles to survive.

I think he/she was making a comment about how so many people say wii u isn't next gen but devs/pubs like this continually refer to it as next gen whether or not their game is releasing on it.

@LegendofSantiago

Most of the dudes (yep most are male) on the press say that next gen is only about power (main importance for males) and the WiiU is not next gen because of that. For shure all these guys have spend 5 years or more studing processors, that's the reason why they are journalists and not working for Intel and the best to tell what is power of something about and if it's next gen or not! Devs, like Activision very small and unknown and no qualified, are not... (that's black humor)

That's a somewhat fair point, except that it breeds contempt for companies from the Nintendo fanbase, which pushes people to boycott games, which is a losing scenario for everyone because then those same companies are just going to say "See? Games don't sell on Nintendo."

EA doesn't give a shovel that they screwed up Madden, FIFA, Mass Effect, etc. All they care about is sales. If they can hire two high schoolers to port ME3 while sinking money into ME Trilogy for everyone else, and can then pretend that they spent the same amount of money porting ME3 as they did for ME Trilogy, and then point to low sales, they WILL do that.

So when people boycott EA, you're just playing into their hands.

Which sucks, because the Wii had the same problem - terrible shovel awful ports and horrendous gimmick games, which companies just pretended was justification enough to cut support.

And sorry, but Nintendo clearly doesn't give a shovel at this point. If they did, we'd have Reggie and Iwata going out EVERY DAY talking about their attempts to get exclusives, open up new development houses, and usher in first party content. They have utterly fucking failed to do this for the past year. It's sick at this point, and until I see an absolute barrage of content and talk from NoA/NoJ telling me they are absolutely trying to resolve the situation, I'm not convinced.

And no - a planned yearly investor's meeting doesn't count, because that was always going to happen no matter what. I'm talking about more Nintendo Directs, more press releases, more everything. And they just aren't doing that, while telling me "Wait another 2 months for Pikmin 3."

Nintendo doesn't give a shovel. It's disgusting.

Firstly, it's not third parties' job to sell the console. And secondly, who would buy a WiiU for "all these third party games" when they're already available elsewhere?

First it's "I'm not buying a Wii U for only first party games" then it's "who cares about third party games I can get else where" or "FUCK YOU BRING THAT WII U EXCLUSIVE TO PS360 BAAAAAWWWW" people just have this stupid opinion of "I want Nintendo games but not their kiddy console" and nothing will change that.

And they had no problem selling the PS3 when it was selling like crap, so I don't see how this is any different when there are third parties trying with the Wii U.
