XMNR: Sega confirmed on Monday that the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines will not be playable at the E3 gaming conference which kicks off on June 5.
Not good... not good at all. This is a bad move. Don't get me wrong, if it's not ready, then its just not ready. (But) WTH have they been doing since E3 2011? I love Nintendo... but how many of the games announced at E3 2011 will actually be playable at this year's conference? This is utter BS because all they need is a demo... or anything! This is just unacceptable, especially when you factor in all the praise that the WiiU has been getting from Gearbox.
how is this nintendo's fault?
That's not how I meant to come across. I will take a finished product over a rushed game any day of the week. I was very angry... infact, I have no idea who to blame. E3 2011 left me with a certain impression, and perhaps my expectations were a little high. I just figured that with all the praise from Gearbox, and last year's announcement, that they would at least have a demo ready by E3 2012. But you're right, Nintendo promised this game as a launch title... nothing more.
@mr_mike The game is coming, there is no need for a demo right now, they only need to release a demo before the launch and you will be able to see if the game is good or not. As for the Wii U controller, you will be able to see if it's good/confortable or not playing some other games during the show. Aliens won't be playable but maybe we will se some trailer or gameplay of the Wii U version.
It's because the Wii U version won't be up to par. Either that or Nintendo thinks it's too hardcore for their family friendly E3 presentation. Trollololol Nah, it's probably just not ready yet or something.
I don't care if it won't be playable since I won't be there, but I would be upset if it isn't shown.
Too bad really. Though I suppose the silver lining is there is now more room to focus on other Wii U games.
" This is utter BS because all they need is a demo... or anything! " Ubisoft had demos last year. So more devs will have it this year.
Well current "Suspense" Trailer is damn good. Wii U version could look better?
Dude, what the hell? You're getting angry and stressed out, lashing out against companies saying it's "unacceptable" when it's just a video game man. If you let tiny things like this stress you out and get you angry all the time, you're not going to live a happy life. Sure, it would be nice to have it playable at E3, but you'll get to play it soon enough. Sheesh.
If Dr. Phil and Kermit the Frog had a baby, they would name it chanmasta... Sheesh. You have 2 choices for a Reply: A) Go to a commercial break B) Sing me one of those classic Muppet jingles
Thats a shame I really wanted to see how it would look on Wii U
Well, it doesn't mean we won't see gameplay footage from the WiiU version it means that it won't be playable.
Aww i wanted to see how it looked like on Wii U cause i heard it's on par with current gen Playstation and Xbox.
Well, the developer actually said the Wii U will have the best looking version for console, so it's not "on par", it's better.
Well considering it has at least twice the power of PS3/X360. Wii U version will look pretty damn good.
You need to read and hear some some up to date news i think
THEY Said, "NOT PLAYABLE"-Meaning, we will see it BUT "they" won't be able to play it. Why is this story so misunderstood? And mis-reported?
Not playable. Does NOT mean it skips E3. Young journalists these days and misleading titles.
The wait to E3 is killing me. The past few E3's have been underwhelming to me. To me everything just evolves so slowly. The WiiU is gonna be a beast if it at least does 720p 3D @ 120fps. Built in video chat via touch screen. Is there gonna be a subscription? If so I'll sign up day one.
I enjoyed last year's E3 press conference from Sony and Nintendo.
Lol i wonder why its not beiñg shown. Yeah because its going to be the best version bwahhhhh
No one said that it wasn't going to be shown...it just will not be "playable" do you have a problem reading? Hell with the wording it even leaves open the possibility that it WILL be playable just behind closed doors or even as a centerpiece for one of those roundtables that Nintendo has been having the last few years,,don't assume-of course you do know what they say about ASS-U-ME ing right?
Here go the know it all female stalkers lol Sensitive women on here i tell you hahaha
There ya go assuming again..man you are on an amazing roll of stupidity huh?
HAHAHAHA you not gonna see it cos is better than PS3/360 don't you see that guy only lying Nintendo had give him money he can't say that will be like other versions or to say is gonna be worst than PS3/360 version now start to | Disagree my comment cos i am sure you not like it
