Imagining GTA V on Nintendo's Wii U

Grand Theft Auto V was just officially revealed yesterday, though Rockstar didn't confirm any of the platforms it's coming to in the initial announcement. But let's assume it's coming to Wii U, and then let's start trying to figure out how Grand Theft Auto V's Wii U version would differ from what PlayStation and Xbox players will get.

The only thing I see happening if it goes to the Wii U is a map type thing (like the pause menu) but I wouldn't hold your breath. It all depends how far along the game is in development (time issues) and also see if it is worth the extra development costs.

Map on screen = really cool feature.

Best graphics = :D

"Best graphics = :D" Keep dreaming on that thought. Why would rockstar purposely spend more time on one console. Its not going to make more sales for them. It will be developed for the console with the most limitations so it can be ported to other consoles. It may be in nintendo's best interest to have better graphics but not rockstar's

You are talking like the wii u is on the same league as the current consoles.

I can guarantee you that if the rumours about it gpu are true then their would be no reason to gimp the wii u version.

It happened with multiplats in 2005/2006 where the 360 version is way more superior than the ps2/og xbox

@dark-hollow "then their would be no reason to gimp the wii u version"

what about money? Look at it from Rockstar's point of view. Making one console the best graphically makes no sense when two consoles with massive install base are present. 3rd parties games may have some sort add on but it is costly to develop amazing graphic for one console especially when the attachment rate is any ones guess. No 3rd part studio is that stupid to throw money with the possibility of the same income as if they make the graphics as good for the PS3 and 360. Rockstar wouldn't make any more money from it. Nintendo are the only ones to gain (of course Wii U owners as well)

It would be fun to have all this features in the Wii U version.

funny how people disagree with you....are they afraid of FUN!?!

Hmmm maybe a mode where you can play your own mii in the game? Boy wouldn't that be weird, having realistic people and than there you are.

When you're in the car, the controller screen could act as the dashboard of the car you're driving. You can control the radio, windshield wipers, blinkers... stuff like that.

I think that would be a neat idea.

The only real differences I could see is it maybe having a higher frame-rate and maybe a native 1080p output...and prolly some AA.

yabhero2400d ago

why wld anyone disagree, he said all facts higher frame rate native 1080 and higher AA
