I doubt it. If I was Sega, I'd be more interested in deciphering what went wrong with the other versions first. I'd also want to know what happened along the development cycle, and with the money they were issued.

Gearbox developed the PC, 360 and PS3 version but they DIDNT develop the Wii-u version?

The ironic part would be if the wii-u is closer to the target render that was originally shown last year.

It should be interesting if the game does come out. Do a proper side by side by side by side. did look too good but not impossible to achieve. so i wouldnt count the possibilities out completely. Maybe for aliens but not in general.

No, that render is fake.

Try to compare the packaged polished demo and the retail actual game and experience the difference.

There goes the "definite version" supposedly built up from the ground for Wii U. Nintendo and Wii U owners are having terrible luck these days. Sales are very poor, none of the games are able to make an impact and games get delayed (Rayman) or cancelled (Aliens:CM).

Unless the wii u's version was a completely redone version of the garbage that came out then wii u owners (myself included) should consider themselves lucky it may not appear on wii u.

Had it on pc and I couldn't play past the first 15 min it was so awful - and I'm a longtime aliens fan.

That's not bad for WII U owners at least no unsuspecting consumers will get the shaft.

Is this satire? Please tell me this is satire. I did NOT just read what he said. Seriously does this guy have any honor at all?

If Sega would be willing to take a few million and invest into fixing what went wrong with the other versions, they could technically save themselves and the game, but I think a name-change would be needed to clean off the slate a bit. If I knew that the Wii U version fixed all that was wrong with the other versions (like Team Ninja did with Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge), I'd still buy it for Wii U.

But the chances of that happening are slim to none, in which case, I'd hope Sega just cans the game.

They spent that money on getting Randy Pitchford.

But isn't there a rumor that Gearbox constantly delayed the game so they could get more funding from Sega, and then used most of that funding into developing Borderlands 2??

If it's true, Sega doesn't need to invest a few more millions. Gearbox should do it by themselves, with their own money, and take all the blame.

DOMination-1610d ago

I don't buy that rumour. Afterall, the first Borderlands was very successful. There's no reason why 2K wouldn't have given gearbox the appropriate funding for the sequel.

DragonKnight1610d ago

Don't bother Pitchford. Even the Wii U doesn't deserve that terrible game.

I love how the commercial shows a Wii U version, yet now it's at "We'll see" status.
