Most Wanted on Wii U is based on the PC version

Write Trigger writes: "The Wii U version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted is based on the PC build, vice president of Criterion Games has announced.

Speaking with GamesRadar in a recent demo, Alex Ward noted that the Wii U version will feature a "notable increase in visual quality" over its console counterparts, largely due to its superior memory and more modern GPU architecture. (Need for Speed Most Wanted, Wii U)

Well I'll be damned. I expected this to be a completely untouched port with a slapped on off-tv mode!
Nevers0ft  +   1019d ago
Yup, kudos to Criterion. I expected this port to be totally phoned-in. This just jumped from my "maybe" to my "definitely" pile.
TurboGamer  +   1020d ago
Still is a crap game. The original Most Wanted is a million times better then this garbage.

.....originals of everything are always better
deafdani  +   1020d ago
Uncharted 2 & 3 are better than Uncharted 1. Grand Theft Auto 3 is better than the first 2 GTAs. Super Smash Bros Melee is better than Super Smash Bros. Little Big Planet 2 is better than Little Big Planet. Mario Galaxy 2 is better than Mario Galaxy 1. Mario Kart 64 is better than Super Mario Kart. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is better than the first 3 Call of Duty games.

In videogames, there's countless examples of sequels that trump the first game on everything. Because of this, that "originals of everything are always better" argument is simply not true.

MGS 3 is better than MGS
RE2 is better than RE1
Silent hill 2 is better than SH1

Yeah, but you're exaggerating, this game isn't so bad. Anyway, I'm glad to hear this isn't a half-assed port, I do not have a Wii-u but I hate when devs screw over an entire fanbase because they're lazy. *cough* Bethesda" *cough*
BanBrother  +   1020d ago
Wow when you cough does it hit your screen and turn into words? Awesome. *fart* not really *fart*. Jks.

lets see how it turns out
RFornillos4  +   1020d ago
i've tried the PC version once from a friend. to be honest, I did prefer the original Most Wanted because somehow I liked following the story a bit. the new one by Criterion is focused more on racing, cop chases and story has been sidelined (is there a story at all? -- sorry, but I decided not to get this, so my playing time from my friend's is very, very limited).

but this is good news for Wii U owners at least. so I hope it does well. and if the previews are good, maybe I'll change my mind about getting this after all. coz i have the need for speed.
Starfox17  +   1020d ago
WiiU version is graphically the same as pc,the gameplay will be better i think.
nintendoland  +   1020d ago

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1020d ago

"Thw WiiU doesnt have good graphics, it's a bad console, a failure"

"WiiU is graphically superior"

"Yes, now let's talk about another bad thing about the game."
Picture_Dancer  +   1020d ago
How many times developers promised best-looking WiiU version, 1080p graphics etc. and it always ended the same, which is worst looking version from all 3 current gens: PS3, X360 and WiiU.

Rarely do we have video evidence to back it up though. I agree that in the past it's been mostly hyperbole.
wiium64  +   1020d ago
this proves that the wii u is next gen, sorry haters you lose.

NaAsAr  +   1020d ago
this doesn't sound too promising as the PC version is riddled with issues.
Ck1x  +   1020d ago
Actually if anyone watched the video, he states that the WiiU version recieves the fixes that plagued the previous 360/PS3&PC builds.
quantae06  +   1020d ago
Cool... I might pick it up for my Wii U if they fix the bugs.

check this out, im glad the wii u version is based on the p.c.
a_adji  +   1020d ago
Wow all this testosterone. Pass the popcorn because this us entertainment.

Each system has and will have it' s pros/cons, lovers and haters but we are all gamers so can't we stop looking at specs and just get along?

Dam you Internet bedroom journalists look what you done did.
Realplaya  +   1020d ago
Where is that one hater that always post wiiu is rubbish on every negative article?
I hope they advertise this game so that fans know its out.
MegaLagann  +   1020d ago
While I have no interest in this game, i'll hand it to the debs for going out of their way for the Wii U version, unlike most developers so far. People have this impression that the Wii U somehow can't handle last gen games, when really it's incompetent devs rushing their ports. So hopefully this changes that perception.
dani25pr  +   1020d ago
hahahaha heard based on pc wii u the best talk talk
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1020d ago
NOO! noo! NOOO!

Now I don't know who to believe is it the TROLLS on N4G or- or- or- do I believe numerous game designers...

Game designers are smart and actually work on WiiU's but Trolls make such compelling arguments like, "WiiU sucks" and "WiiU is worse than 7 year old technology"....

-How could the N4G Trolls be soooooo wrong?

It's like blind hate, yes that's it, blind hate...

Yes, yes- The Game Developers hate the N4G Trolls...
-They must have planted this story to make the TROLLS look bad. It's a C- O- N- SPIRACY!

Don't Worry Trolls! I refuse to believe a word that the Smarter game developers say, cause I know you are always right.

wii u gets the best version of a multiplatform game and digital foundery didn't comment yet?

whats wrong guys we get a good graphics bump from 360 and ps3 and you don't want to talk about it?

but normal ports that have slightly lower frames rates on a brand new system they can't wait to Bring up.
Neonridr  +   1019d ago
Also ports of games that wouldn't even have been possible day 1 on the 360 or PS3, it took 8-9 years of optimizing to get them to this point. But that's just pointing out the obvious, so I better keep my mouth shut otherwise I will be labelled as a fanboy.. ;)
