TSA writes: "Speaking to TSA about NfS: Rivals, following our hands on time with the game, Creative Director Craig Sullivan answered our question as to why Rivals would not be seeing a release on Wii U or PlayStation Vita, when Most Wanted had reached both."

Not surprised. It's a new studio. Obviously, they'd aim for higher sales for their first game while maintaining resources. Although, a portable version for this would be nice in the future.

The Vita install base its bigger than it was when MW was released, I know it isn't an enormous gap but still my point still stands, there's more Vita's out and I'm sure a Vita owner would like to buy this game for it. I know I would buy it.

They talk about MW not selling well on the Vita but they didn't even supported the game after launch. No DLC's, no bug fixes, patches, nothing.

Just give Rivals a chance on the Vita and then we'll see if it does or not sell well, which I believe it would sell like hot cakes.

As much as I agree with you, I still think it's on Sony. They MUST release a Gran Turismo game specifically designed for Vita by using optimized GT 5 engine...That would be amazing.

I understand all 1st party studios are working on PS4 games but c'mon. I got nothing to be excited for next year other than Borderlands 2

MW on vita is still best racer so far. Wipe out is good but its a different style of racing.

imXify1650d ago

MW on WiiU sold 5k only and MW on Vita sold 400k, a little more than the pc version.

I just don't understand why no Rivals on Vita.

400k not including digital sales and most likely undertracked by vgchartz. Whatevs

Its probably something to do with building a new engine or something. EA don't make sense to me anymore. They are sending Fifa to die on the Vita and they know it.

5k? get the fuck outta here. for real?

Meh who cares, WiiU already has an awesome racing game Need for Speed Most Wanted U, I don't need another racing game already anyway.

LOL_WUT1650d ago

Yea but you guys didn't buy it and the reason why they next game won't come to the Wii U. ;)

MNGamer-N1650d ago

I bought it. It's all I can do.

gpturbo811649d ago (Edited 1649d ago )

i bought it , did you wii u owner lol wut ;)

Chrischi19881649d ago

I bought it, too. But actually I am not very happy with that game. Ok, it was not a bad port, but only online multiplayer? Thats for peole who have no friends, other than online ones, which you never saw for real.

This is why I am waiting for Project Cars, because that at least will offer you offline multiplayer.

If I want online multiplayer, I play on a PC, not a console.

Most Wanted is crazy on the Wii U!

Don't listen to LOL_WUT. He's a liar and a troll. He claims he owns a Wii U then bashes anyone and everyone who is a Nintendo fan when games like these don't sell well whether or not they actually bought the game.

"It didn’t really sell that many, in terms of the Wii U market. I would love for it to have, because we put so much effort into that, trust me. I’d love for it to be way bigger than it was, and the same for the Vita"

Shocking to hear ;)
