GTA V at Wii U Launch is a guaranteed purchase

MMGN.com writes: Before Nintendo even revealed its successor to the Wii in the Wii U, rumours were already swirling about the yet-to-be-announced console. One rumour suggested a Grand Theft Auto V-led launch lineup, which has certainly gained weight following the proceeding GTA V reveal and release date conjecture.

"Would the prospect of a new Grand Theft Auto on a new console be more appealing to gamers than it being released on five/six-year old hardware?"

Well the thing is it is probably more attractive not to get the Wii U just for GTA. A lot have 360 or PS3 already so to justify getting a Wii U because of GTA seems a little out there. We have known from previous Rockstar instalments that the PS3 version is a port and does suffer (but these are so minute it is almost hard to see). So why would Rockstar spend time and money on a special Wii U version that would look better. It is more likely that all versions of the game would be the same. So what is worth it more. A $60 game or a minimal (pushing it) $200 plus the GTA game for the same game.

The Wii U will have its own first party games/other exclusives that make the Wii U a guaranteed purchase. How many games that are multiplat look better on the PS3 than the 360(or visa versa)? Hardly any. They look both the same because it is cost effective.

Except that Wii-U seems to be easy to program for as it is for xbox360.

I will definitely buy GTA V if it's for the wiiu.

I will not buy the wiiu just because it has GTA V (there are way better reasons to buy it than that).

I would need to see more hardcore games and a Decent race game like Gran Turismo and Forza to be even tempted to buy a Wii U.

It's suppose to be a Wii U launch title.

ChickeyCantor2977d ago

Why Decent?
Why not F-zero? ;D

steve30x2976d ago

F-Zero might be your kind of game , but its not mine. I like proper racing games.

ChickeyCantor2976d ago

I hope you played F-Zero GX.
It's more then proper.

steve30x2976d ago

I'm srry but how can you call this a proper racing game https://www.youtube.com/wat... Thats pure arcade.
