Bethesda: ‘Never Say Never’ On Wii U, Vita Support

IGN: ''Bethesda has released plenty of PC and console games and is already planning to support Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While the publisher has a wide range of multiplatform titles and has even experimented with mobile, it has yet to publish a game on Wii U, Vita or 3DS. In an interview with IGN at E3, Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines explained his philosophy regarding expanding to additional systems.'' (Bethesda Softworks, Pete Hines, PS Vita, Wii U)

Hope so. You guys are a pretty big developer, and those two systems are in need of some bigger, better support.

Still hoping for Vita support, couldn't care less about the Wii U.

Opposite for me hoping for Wii U support. Couldn't care less about vita

Maybe you both could grow the hell up and realize you're not the only gamers in the world.

Support for both of those systems would be nice.

Hoping for Vita support, ha ha ha ha.
SynGamer  +   464d ago
@chadboban - Grow up? I'm an adult who likes my PS Vita and has no interest in the Wii U.

Why U SO Mad?
PopRocks359  +   464d ago
He's saying it would be a nice gesture if you said "It would be great if Wii U owners could have Bethesda's support as well as us Vita owners." Basically you're only thinking for yourself as oppose to the benefit of everyone.

I don't own a Vita right now, but I do want it to have some support for those who already own one.

I don't agree with what Nintendo has done with the Wii U, so not, I don't really want games going to it just for the sake of going to it. I'd rather see games on the PS Vita and 3DS, personally.

Who the hell plays the Vita? It's a PSP with a touch screen added
SnotyTheRocket  +   464d ago
What exactly has Nintendo "Done" with the Wii U? I think it's a pretty cool system, just needs more support. The only reason it doesn't get it is because gamers like you won't give it a go.

"Who the hell plays the Vita? It's a PSP with a touch screen added"

Hmm maybe the 5 million plus people that have bought one. The Vita is nothing like the PSP lol. Differences is the PSP never had a second analog, another huge difference is power. The PSP wasn't even close in terms of hardware in anyway either, it has cameras which the PSP never had in it as well one of which can be used for video chatting.

If you don't own or actually know anything about it then shut the hell up will you? That is like saying the Wii U is nothing but a Wii with a touchscreen, your comment is just as stupid.

I'm hoping for N Gage support. Couldn't care less about 32X.

I want both because, you know, gamer.
ziratul  +   464d ago
Who cares about Vita? Only radical sony fanboys own that system.
Xof  +   464d ago
I'd love to see see Skyrim on Vita. New games are always good, but in terms of what Bethesda's already got out, I'm not sure I'd care about any WiiU ports as my (brand-spanking new) WiiU is connected to the same display as my PS3.

And I have a feeling most, if not all (core) gamers are in a similar situation.
LordMe  +   464d ago
How about that PSP TES game? Dig it up and turn it Vita bound.

And the Wii U can run Skyrim, port it over with some new stuff in it!
Qrphe  +   464d ago
It was an Oblivion spinoff, and that Oblivion Wii build also got scrapped.
SactoGamer  +   464d ago
I'd love to see something Bethesda on Wii U. I can see something like TES or Fallout working well on the platform by using the gamepad's touchscreen for inventory management and keeping track of quests.
Kevlar009  +   464d ago
I'll be sad if the WiiU doesn't get Fallout4. I could see someone making a PipBoy skin for their gamepad. The highest difficulty could not pause when you use your pipboy, forcing you to move and switch at the same time ala ZombiU

Bethesda most likely looks for two things when they decide to develop for a system: A)Will we make a profit off that system alone. B)Can we do all the things we want without cutting corners, can we deliver the "Bethesda" experience. So much of the WiiU's future depends on the next 10 months, hopefully its FirstParty can pull through

Imagine an Elder Scrolls game just for the Vita. It would obviously have to be dummed down, but it would still be pretty cool.
Dj7FairyTail  +   464d ago
tons of glitches
MegaLagann  +   464d ago
It'll be just as broken as the PS3 version?
Kietz  +   464d ago
"dummed down"
How would they manage that one?

Do you now run in a straight line, auto-leveling every five minutes?
FulGor3  +   462d ago
The Vita is a powerful machine, I'm sure they could figure out a way to make it work. It obviously wouldn't be on par with the console version, but it would be the first Elder Scrolls game on handheld. Think out side the box, there is a reason they're game developers, and you're not.
cpayne93  +   464d ago
Put an updated morrowind on vita, something like skywind. I would love that.
SonyPS4  +   464d ago
I would play this. It could also sell a few more Vitas.
SlapHappyJesus  +   464d ago
Would probably be the title that sold me on the Vita. Getting close to a purchase, but that would be all I needed.
Still the only Elder Scrolls games that I really took to. Morrowind is easily one of my favorite games.
aPerson  +   464d ago
Do you people really want a next-gen Elder Scrolls/Fallout game to be gimped down just so it can be released on the Wii U???

We saw how Final Fantasy 13's quality suffered due to the hardware limitations of the Xbox 360 - and that was a current-gen game. I don't want next-gen games to be simplified so they can be ported to consoles with specs comparable to current-gen systems (Wii U). Imagine how much different The Witcher 3 would have turned out if it was developed with the Wii U in mind.

"Gimped down" how exactly?

Are they "gimped down" on the PS3 and Xbox 360?

If you think for a second that Bethesda will only be releasing on PS4 and/or Xbox One without some HEFTY payment from Sony or MS, you are wrong.

You'll likely see all their games "gimped down" on a PS3 and an Xbox 360 for quite some time. Not to worry.
kwyjibo  +   464d ago
Bethesda, don't waste your time.
IMightBeRetarded  +   464d ago
How about we support games being made for systems.
kwyjibo  +   464d ago
They can barely manage 3 systems.
MegaLagann  +   464d ago
They're basically saying once these systems start selling we'll more than likely support them. Again, nothing to see here, unless you want to read some inane fanboy chattering in the comment section.
brewin  +   464d ago
I really do wish I could play a revamped version of Fallout New Vegas and Skyrim GotY editions on the wii U. Gamepad implementation and touch commands could be great. Plus the load times could be shortened and all that jazz. The U is a pretty speedy system. Come on Bethesda! People would pay for this!

Bethesda on a handheld? ... Ill have to see it first to believe it.

I'd love some FO/ES love on the VITA. :)
vigilante_man  +   464d ago
They can't even develop for the PS3!! Keep your half-hearted efforts away from the Vita.
AkitAtikA7  +   464d ago
Holy shit, I've been saying ever since I got the Vita that the only games I'd love to play on it are 5 for sure,
1. Grand Theft Auto(of Course)
2. Elder Scrolls
3. Ea Sports UFC
4. NCAA Football 14(Export draft to #5...)
5. Madden 25
If they made those happen, the replay factor on the Vita would jump enormously and Vita Owners would not be able to put these handhelds down for one second as these games have amazing depth and replay value to them.

Maybe all those people who are not retarded and realize that the vita has great potential and is very powerful.. also has a lot of interaction with the ps4. The Vita has a beautiful 5 inch OLED Nice hd touchscreen with dual analogs , back touch pad, front and back cameras, gyroscope..ect. Check out what the Vita and really do by looking at Killzone Mercenary on the Vita exclusively. then you can come back and comment what u really think.
porkChop  +   463d ago
Fallout or Elder Scrolls on the go. Can't wait. Those 2 series, along with GTA, are what I'm really hoping for on Vita.
