Will Wright has finally confirmed that a version of Spore is being developed for the Wii. And despite the different controls, Wright seems to like working on the platform.
it's a shame that this games potential will not be fully realized on the Wii, they should have released it on Xbox 360
I thought it was coming to other consoles as well....
Darn my PC sucks.
Its a shame that you think that way. The Wii controller is a perfect fit for the game. And Will Wright thinks so because he is making the game :|
Haha yeah right. My Wii's more powerful than my PC :P
Besides, I think the Wii could handle it. The controller sure is perfect.
Anyways, we must bow to the wishes of Will Right (spelling on purpose).
I could be great on PS3
"I could be great on PS3"
You are great on PS3.
Which one will I get? <3
But it's been ages since the last real stuff about the game was shown :o
Well, I don't think a publisher like EA of all companies is going to let a huge game like this NOT come out on the PS3 and 360. On a side note, wasn't this confirmed on Friday? I could have sworn I read this a few days ago.
It was in the article about how Will Wright said that Wii is the only next-gen system.
Nothing more nothing less, still best on Sixaxis PS3.
Please explain the advantages of the SIXAXIS over the Wii-Remote in Spore, or for that matter any Sims-like game.
And how on earth are you back to five bubbles?!
Edit: Oh, down to four. Wow. That was fast.
I'd like to know how he has 5 bubbles myself...
Ohhh SIXAXIS could... uh... um...
Navigate menus in a fun way? Rotate camera? Hmm...
Oh, I know! We could make it control a pointer on the screen. Wherever you tilt it, the pointer moves in that direction!
...or you could just put it on the Wii.
They need to get their act together and start producing on this game, I stopped caring about this game 2 years ago. I looked (and still looks awesome) but until they start showing some new stuff or at least be honest about the state of production I could care less about this game.
Yeah, I completely forgot about this game. It's way down on my list of upcoming Wii games though... and with my income that means I'll probably get it in 2009 or something.
What the hell? The Wii?! Didn't see that one coming...
to its fullest. It'll be gimped. This game is processor intensive, and they'll have to sacrifise a lot. This game would be better suited to the PS3, since it has the best CPU. The 360 wouldn't do bad, but Spore is more about CPU power, so the GPU wouldn't be used to its full potential (you could say the same about the RSX). You could say RAM would be a problem on both PS3 and 360, however, since every PS3 is equal (and every 360 is equal), there could be development workarounds that would make the extra dev time worth it.
Pretty sure you didn't work on the game, so you don't really know if the game is "processor intensive".
But if I may go into Will Wright mode (and I'm going to):
The game would be gimped on the PS3 and 360 - the systems aren't as powerful as a PC and without the use of a mouse, the game would be seriously gimped.
The game will be different on Wii - but not gimped. While the graphics may take a slight hit (and only a slight one), the gameplay will be on par, with use the Wii remote.
if the game was processor intensive dont you think he would be making it for 360 and ps3 instead?
nice one Prismo_Fillusion
My point the game makes no sence on the wii unleast you are just trying to make some profit out of it which in this case its the only reason they are making it in the 1st place.

Sxiaxis is better then your so called wii-mote and PS3 could easily handle this kills to birds with one stone.
wii version on the other hand its just a half ass game and its not the full experience sad to see people will pay 50 for this POS.
lack of punctuation!=good use of punctuation
Oh lord. Someone skipped far too many classes in school.
Also, your explanation of why Sixaxis is better than the Wii Remote of "Sxiaxis is better than your so called wii-mote" is not a very good explanation. I'm just not convinced!
you obviosly dont know what the wiimote can do :| Sixaxis cannot do pointer functionality. only tilt.
I don't get it. The game has huge worlds and in previous showings, there were lot's of frame-rate and loading problems because of huge areas and complex designs. And that was on high end PC of the devs!
How on earth are they going to run it on Wii that is hardly stronger than PS2?
So much of the Wii's power goes toward handling frame-rate that I can see it handling this game. I'm sure that the graphics will likely be comparatively sub-par, but it should look good, and be complete. It all just comes down to if one has a PC that meets the requirements to play this game or not I think. Though the Wii version will probably be cheaper, if one has a powerful gaming PC, I doubt that a 10 buck difference will matter.
All of that being said, who knows? I sure hope that the Wii version isn't a half-assed, generic version, and I doubt that Nintendo wants to build that negative reputation. 2008 should say alot to us about the Wii with both Spore and Monster Hunter 3. If they can pull those games off with the only complaint being that they aren't done in HD graphics, Nintendo should officially have a winner that will last until these companies collectively throw out the next round of systems. If buyers come away from those games feeling second-rate, then the system will survive only/primarily due to Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, and the like. Just my opinions anyway.
The GC would spank the PS2 any day. Why do you think the Wii is "hardly" stronger than the PS2?
Same reason a P4 running at 3.3GHz is faster than a Core 2 Duo running at 2.4GHz?...
hmm so it seems that Will is having the same thoughts on the consoles as most are having with the PSP.
The 360 and PS3 are trying to be so much like the PC but as we all know it's impossible. So Will a PC game maker thru and thru looks at the PS3 and 360 then says I'd rather make it on PC.
The Wii on the other hand is a gaming machine with a control theme that fits for exactly what he wants in the game. Even the DS with it's stylist works well as a mouse (SimCity DS is killer ^^)
I've been saying this for some time now, that Wii is a most solid fit for games requiring a pointer gameplay, just like RTS's or heck, turn based strategy games. I would kill for a remake of Master of Orion 2 on Wii, and that made online.
