Activision revealed in a interview with Kotaku that there are no plans to release Modern Warfare 2 on the Wii, despite how well Call of Duty: World at War sold. Very sad news for Wii owners indeed.
So, after all the rumors with the fake boxart and the fact that the game was successful on the Wii, there is no Wii version. This is just like Ubisoft. Red Steel sold well, but then Ubisoft starting to pull out shovelware games like Petz and Imaginz. Well, PS3 version for me.
The conduit would be too much competition to them... The online actually works and it's fun.
Is anyone suprised? IW is not going to embarrass themselves releasing a COD Wii game. LMAO!
Whats so funny :-/ they would not embarrass themsevles if they were skilled enough to make great wii game which they are so i don't know where your getting at.
You're joking right? If not then Retro must be the most shameful developer ever.
First off, I hope noone really thought that a Wii version would have been as good as the "proper" versions. Secondly, and more importantly, I don't think anyone is really questioning IW's ability to make a good game on the Wii. The issue is with LIMITED RESOURCES. Simply put, IW (not Activision) cannot afford to just make a third (albeit inferior) version at the drop of a dime. They're comfortable with doing the best job they can with the two "state-of-the-art" systems, and making sure they deliver on people's expectations. This also happens to be the same reason why Valve doesn't make games for PS3s (yet). They just don't have the resources to make that happen without compromising the quality of their games.
Oh thank GOD! I dont mind if another developer would make MW2 for wii but not IW, no no no no no. I want all their attention to go for PS3/360 versions.
I feel your pain.
Sorry, but I'm actually happy about this. Hopefully it'll give them more time and resources to make an even better game on the 360/PS3 and the PC.
Ofcourse not, its no fun to make last gen games for a very talented developer and work with last gen hardware. Only shiatware from less quality devs comes to the Wii, like COD5. Just once in a while a speial made game comes by like Madworld and then the Wii users don't buy. Total fail Nintendo this gen on the real gaming part it is. Casual wise/non gamers its a big succes though... A special Wii version, too much effort needed to just sell 1 mln. units and just break even. They better can focus on PS3/360 versions and sell at least 8 mln. on the 360 alone and then put the effort for a Wii version in DLC for the 360/PS3 and earn another couple of millions on that!
So, HVS and PlatniumGames (third party), anyone who made games on the Wii are terrible developers because they made games for the Wii??? Platnium could have made MadWorld for PS3/360, but it would have sold worse due to it's color and button mashing gameplay. MadWorld was a repetitive, styalized game filled with tons of gore and bloodshed. I saw a lot of N4G-users who didn't want to touch it at all. This type of game doesn't have wide hardcore appeal, unlike Call of Duty.
There is no God!!!!!! LOL, Just kidding. Who the hell cares?
i wouldnt expect that to happen
It's OK, Wii has the Conduit.
Wii? seriously thats not even a console! And 2 those who says anything else shame on you! PS3 and 360 are consoles NOT Wii damn it! And give me all the disagrees in the world I dont care im just saying the truth!
no what your saying is stupid and very fanboyish tell me why you think its not a real console let me guess because it doesn't have the power of the ps3 and 360 right?
So, the PS2, Xbox, or any other console is just a toy?? Well, that must be right!! They aren't consoles because they don't match the power of the PS3 and 360!! /sarcasm. @ mistersippi The Wii can do 60FPS, just look at Smash Bros. Note: Having 4 bubbles sucks.
Oh just because i feel that the Wii is not a console im a fanboy? I dont like it's hardware all i think about it is a machine that makes 6year olds happy. @Mr nintendo: well at that time they had the power, now PS3/360 has the power. from gamecube to wii all they did is put a new controller that makes fat kids lose weight (credit for that though).
MW2 isn't coming out for GameCube or N64 either
Lol, who the hell thought it was headed to wii. Wii cannot do HD graphics, 60fps. Poor Wiinies, still no good 3rd party games- and none on the horizon, lol.
you really failed with your comment ALLOT the frame rate has nothing to do with the power ps3 and 360 has mario galaxy as well as many other wii games and last gen games run at 60 FPS yeah wii cannot do HD graphics duh but saying it can't do a certain game is just denial it would just be the wii version of that game and seriously no good 3rd party games yes that all depends on your taste but wii has very great 3rd party games and more or on the way
You used to never be able to find a wii and now they're stacked up in every best buy. The wii is a fad that has already come and is on it's way down.
you do realize that the wii is still outselling the ps3 and the 360 right? so because the wii doesn't sell out every month its all of a sudden a fad? tell me why do you think its a fad can't say motion controls because 360 and ps3 are getting motion controls oh wait its because they are pushing the casual market right just like how they did the same thing with the original NES anyone that thinks the wii is a fad needs to wake up and stop being in denial
Honestly, i'm not here to bash the Wii but I can see it as a fad. Mainly because the majority of people that bought the Wii are non-gamers , which incidentally was the demographic Nintendo was targeting. And while they bought the system, and bought it they did, they aren't really playing it. Hardcore gamers who care about the new way to game are still using it, but the majority are not.
I'm surprised Activision isn't forcing IW to make it. Seems they want as much money as possible. Maybe they have an executive swimming pool filled with notes that needs a dredg and refill.
Realistically though, the Wii can't handle MW2 as is. But what they can do is a seperate game made only for Wii that takes place in the MW time line.
No, it can't handle the game "as is" from the PS3/360 version, but they could've done what they did with [email protected] IW may have their hands full, but Activision isn't exactly a tiny company with no other devs to help out. Treyarch did alright with [email protected] And it doesn't take as many resources (and should thus be cheaper) to make a Wii version. Also, what the heck are with the comments about Wii not being able to handle 60 fps? Are you guys serious? What, you haven't played Metroid Prime 3?
I don't think the Wii can handle the game at all. I'm not just talking about graphics either. What they are doing in game is too much to pare down and release on the wii as a version with weaker graphics. WaW seemed like it could be done as does the original MW but this one looks practically impossible.
im not really surprise cause if it would they would announce it long time ago.
I don't want modern warfare 2 for Wii. I wouldn't buy it. I mean.. when I played COD4 .. I liked having a headset. I liked having a friends list with gamertags. I liked being able to do everything with the ease of XBL. Wii's online is laughable at best. Friend codes and the whole room chat? Why can't there be like, a normal headset, for us paying adults. Have the whole room chat as an option for the children who's parents don't care enough to supervise them more than every now and then, just enuff to pop in and be like "well, no predators atm" then pce out. I don't hate the Wii, there are decent games for it, I just wouldn't play an online heavy game where talking to your teammates is a little bit extremely important.
YOU don't, because YOU have other options. Most people own Wiis as opposed to PS3s or 360.
To be honest, even if I had JUST a Wii, because their online fails so much & because nerfed wii versions are just annoying, I still would not get MW2 for it.
The Wii version sold something like 2-3 million copies didn't it? Seems like a really poor business decision.
