R* you are great and that's why i won't follow you in the future!

Feel kinda sad for Wii-U and Nintendo. They'll get so overshadowed by Sony and Microsoft come the next 10 months i doubt anyone wants to hear about a Wii-U version of GTAV.

Jadedz2117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

You mean to tell me that the Wind Waker remake (slated for this year) won't intrigue gamer's interest?

felidae2117d ago

overshadowed, lol.

i'm way more interested in pikmin, monster hunter and a lot of other games than i'm in gta v

MmaFan-Qc2117d ago


good for you i guess, it doesnt matter anyway, nintendo consoles are sold to play nintendo IPs, everything else tend to be ignored.

im not saying that i wont play the next zelda/metroid/mario galaxy on the wii u, but i can assure you that i wont play third party games on it like maybe 90% of multi-console owners.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32117d ago

After playing GTA 4 my hopes aren't all that high for 5.

AO1JMM2117d ago

I want to hear about the Wii U edition

PygmelionHunter2117d ago

Why would you feel sad for those who swim in money everyday?

BullyMangler2117d ago

hua haa . yur just a casual gamer . what in the bloody earth would you know about REAL games?

morganfell2117d ago

They are too busy with the PS3/360 and PS4 versions.

It's a sarcastic name for a profile on a game website. I'm more than just a casualgamer, lol. I've been a gamer since NES. But my name does suggest that i'm not that hardocre WOW player or COD player. In that case, then yes i'm more casual.. i like my story games more than anything else.

Ofcourse, i would also like to hear them announce it. What i meant was, do you think the gaming media will put alot of focuse on Wii-U when PS4 and 720 get announced? Everything other than those two consoles are going to get overshadowed. It will be nothing but articles about the specs and price war of 720 and PS4 and which console that'll be the winner.

IMO, Nintendo needs to do a "relaunch" of the Wii-U. An upgraded Wii-U that'll catch some more hardcore players with tech that can match the nextgen consoles and have the current Wii-U for the casuals.

WiiU will not be over shadowed it has better games than GTA5 in my eyes plus ive heard a rumour Ubisoft are bringing Driver to wiiu plus Lego City looks more fun than GTA.

GTA5 needs as much attention as possible going off how crap 4 was,i mean i can look forward to Monster hunter ultimate/Lego city or Windwaker more than i can GTA5 to be honest.

Remakes, remakes and remakes. Don't get me wrong, I love experiencing my favourite game and to me, the Metal Gear Solid HD collection is just amazing, but that's a BONUS. Remakes aren't a thing you want to bank your console's future on

PopRocks3592117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

No one is banking the Wii U's future on the Wind Waker remake (assuming that's what you're specifically alluding to). Nintendo pretty much stated in the direct conference that it's a way to hold fans over while the newest Zelda is coming out.

juandren2117d ago

Thus they are banking on a remake to keep Zelda fans from selling the Wii U and buying a real console. Don't argue with me I am a fairly intelligent person

theEx1Le2117d ago

Why would you even say that? Not your initial point about remakes(which I also believe your off the mark with) but the point on your intelligence. All it does is make you look stupid, arrogant and adds nothing to your argument. To suggest that someone shouldn't disagree with you because of that is daft.

Also on your initial point I'd like to point out that the WW remake is a gap filler for a new Zelda that fans know is coming, so why would they then decide to discard the WiiU? It makes no sense. If they have already purchased a WiiU for a Zelda game then what they want is on its way.

miyamoto2117d ago (Edited 2116d ago )

You mean "cheap gap fillers"?

Like nobody bought Dead Space & Mad World on the Wii, I don't see a need for GTAV on the Wii U. HD Zelda, HD Mario Galaxy definitely yes.

If they put so much of this violence games they might loose their family friendly image and customer base - parents and kids.

Did you read the article? I'm guessing not; "the company has “nothing new” to share regarding GTA V for either Wii U or PC. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 remain the only confirmed platforms for release."

lilbroRx2116d ago

Hold up, I posted an article on this exact news a few days ago and a mod manually shut it down as "old news" what the hell?

As for the comment goes, why must everything that is potentially positive about the Wii U be "redirected" towards the other consoles?

Deku-Johnny2116d ago

Because Sony/MS fanboys can't get their heads around the fact that Nintendo are capable of doing something good.

Here we go wii-u its not getting the most sold game for 2013, typical, maybe later they will. Well its been known GTA sales the most game any year they are out, I doubt they wont get it later.

Jek_Porkins2117d ago

Could be that the delay was in order to get all the versions out at once. Wii U is a viable option and I could see them implement some cool features with the Gamepad, if Nintendo were smart they'd even pay to get that game on Wii U, could possibly sell some systems.

Thatguy-3102117d ago

Why would it sell systems if it will be available in systems that people all ready have? Wouldn't make sense.

Jek_Porkins2117d ago

Wii U is technically next gen, it's more powerful than current hardware and if something like GTA5 were to offer something special or better with a Wii U version, don't you think some people might be pushed into buying one?

I know some people who were pushed into buying one after that last Nintendo Direct, it was impressive.

TheUndertaker852117d ago (Edited 2117d ago )

It wouldn't. Those wishing otherwise are being hopeful.

Nobody in their right mind is going to go, "Oh, I have one of these other two consoles that are already out and want to play GTA. Oh you say I can play it on WiiU? Well, I'm going to go throw down $250 or $300 on a WiiU system plus $60 for GTA V right now to play a game I could already play on one of these other two systems for just the $60 it costs for the game." At the end of the day they're the same game. The WiiU version won't be substantially better if games launching on all three systems to date are any indication.

Rockstar won't be bothered if their game is a system seller or not. Even Reggie Fils-Aime admitted they'll only get games like GTA with an already established userbase.


"Reggie on Rockstar and GTA on Wii U…

“The folks there have said very nice public comments about the Wii U. In the end, it is Nintendo’s responsibility to have a large installed base, to have development tools that help the developers and publishers create great content, and essentially create an environment where teams like Rockstar can bring their very best content to our platform, and if we do that hopefully the very best content throughout the entire industry will show up on Wii U.”"

gamingzen2116d ago

Its going to be held back for either ps4 or nexbox to help sell there new systems

N0S3LFESTEEM2116d ago

This delay all but confirms a multiplat release. Come june and july and it'll be known it's coming out on all platforms at the same date. Don't be too surprised if next gen releases are on board too...

Knight_Crawler2117d ago

In other news Nintendo announces Pokemon Infinity colors and Mario Re-locked, Rebooted and Ready to save the princess for the 1 millionth time.

ElectricKaibutsu2116d ago

Pfft, like Mario games sell consoles. They need some brown third person shooters.

MuhammadJA2117d ago

I'll still wait for a PC release. I'm not buying a console for it.

tachy0n2117d ago

me too! since the PC version is always better, graphics, mods, dedicated servers ETC! :D

tubers2117d ago

I hope this isn't like the GTA IV port where it wasn't well optimized compared to most other PC ports.

tachy0n2117d ago


dont worry about that man, that can be fixed through modding, like for example, in GTA IV you can install better and less resource consuming textures and all that! REALIZMIV FTW!!!

N0S3LFESTEEM2116d ago

minus one down vote... hit the wrong one first. Completely agree.
