Did I miss Something? Do you think this idea is just crazy talk? If so Why?
I mean wouldn't you want the best version of this game on the most powerful system. By all accounts we know the Wii U will use technology that is 8 years newer than the 360 and PS3. We know it will have almost double the ram. We know it supports DX10 at minimum. The 360 supports DX9. Why wouldn't we want to play the game on the system where it will look the best have less texture pop in, and have the unique controller gameplay. We don't need the game at launch but second quarter of 2013 would be perfect.
the difference from DX9 to DX10 is almost none, on Crysis 1, with or without a DX10, the game looked the same
now why shouldn't it be released on the WiiU?
-first of all, WiiU potential buyers are those who previously owned a wii, i doubt people who already have an XBOX 360/PS3 will buy the WiiU at launch
-there are millions of PS3/XBOX 360's already sold with millions of active players, it would take the WiiU at least some years to catch up with 7 years of sales from xbox/ps3
-Multiplatform shooter games on Xbox/ps3/wii have shown that the wii sales are abysmal, the WiiU might improve that a little, but not by much
-the controller, it could be used to change suit modules on the go or have it as a minimap, other than that, i don't really think it could do something else that constantly requires you to change focus from your TV to the tablet, specially since it's a fast paced game
the same reason why Crysis isn't on Macintosh, they have the proper hardware to play it, but most mac users to play FPSs, so it's not worth it spending a lot of money in the development of a port for a system that will give very little sales
if the WiiU turns out to be successful, and in a short time it manages to establish a FPS playerbase like xbox/ps3 with a wide title of shooter, then it would be viable to develop a port for the WiiU
but why should they now spend time and effort, developing for a console that isn't even out yet, it's playerbase doesn't play shooters or have ever played a crysis game before
