Deep Silver has no Wii U plans, COO says "audience is not who we reach best"

NE: "At this rate, the Wii U won't be getting any games from publisher Deep Silver. That would mean no Saints Row, no Metro, and no Dead Island - just to name a few." (Wii U)

Exactly, I just can't picture Deep Silver making an E-rated game. ;)
bullymangLer  +   777d ago
yes, because all "T" rated games and 'E' rated games are just for kids. Poor shadow of the Colossus.. . no

I'll buy the games Nintendo fanboys wouldn't buy anyway.

As a Wii U and Xbox 360 owner, I can confirm that none of those games appealed to me to begin with. I like games that are fun and at least get a single pass from a debug team. I wish the best of luck To Deep Silver making more sh***y games with awesome commercials.

What about Metro Last Light? Looks amazing. ..

Big deal. This company will not be around in a few years anyway. Dead Island 1.5 will not have the hype it had the first time around and the saints series is dead to many after the crap they pulled with the second half of part 3. Never cared one lick for the metro games either.

Well saints row is decent but i hate dead island with a passion, i have tried to play it a few times on my PC and with the horrible bloom and swaying boat like camera movement it made me feel sickly every time, not to mention the awful collission detection and sliding off objects.

I think left 4 dead is a much better series, so is killing floor if you want your fun zombie/specimen co-op fix.

*looks at steam list* Dead Island, Saint Row, Metro 2033 and such...yup...I'm not interested in those games on Wii U Deep Silver. SMH... Guess instead of buying them new on Wii U for Wii U specific features...I'll get them below retail for PC thanks to Steam/Amazon sales. Thanks for saving me money Deep Silver.

haha
you DO understand that you're still giving money to them right? And if you pay even $15 for any of them, Deep Silver/Koch Media will make MORE revenue off those downloads than you buying the physical copy for the WiiU. The only company you're screwing is Nintendo from royalties lol

Who is Deep Silver, again??!?!

Oh yeah, that developer that makes sub-par games.

boo freekin whoo.
hano  +   777d ago
Not that interested in their games to be honest.

I have a PC if I fancy any of their games. I find their small developer published games on the PC better than their big budget projects.

Unfortunately they can't reach any audience expect the media and marketeers.

Better get that resume ready guys the big hurt is coming.
Shinuz  +   777d ago
Seriously their games aren't the ones Nintendo fans would buy anyway and they clearly know this.

Oh and btw Dead Island is an awesome game and I can't wait for Riptide.

Dead Island was a repetitive, buggy messy with bigoted undertones.

I have every system that is currently out and I'm not buying it or its sequel on any of them.

I liked how people bitched about some of the voice in Deus Ex being too "ethnic" but Dead Island basically calls their black character Sambo and no one bats an eye lash.

"Audience is not who we reach best"

Oh you mean an audience who want a finished game. And don't you dare say that Dead Island was a finished. Oh yeah because finished games have beach balls that can kill you if stand on them and have your character run like a inflatable tube man.

It's fun this is said in defence of a developer that made "Animal Crossing"

That's a fair enough statement to make. They no doubt don't believe that their games will appeal to owners of Wii u's. That's their opinion and given they're the ones that would have to bare the costs if they made a game and it flopped, then they're entitled to do as they please. They owe people nothing.

You either buy their games and like them or you don't. Why the hate then? Personally I don't think much of them and wouldn't buy any if they were on the wii u unless they dramatically improved their controls and QA. Then I would be happy to. Until then "no thanks". So he is more or less right after all.
