I think the Wii U hardware would suffer a bit with the heavy graphics and CPU consuming.
Some people on the X360 / PS3 already say that the number of peds and vehicles in the street is sometimes low, and streets seems empty.
Imagine this on Wii U, it would be worse, and the graphics would need to be reduced a bit.
I don't think this game will ever come to Wii U, due to it's hardware being quite weaker than old gen consoles. -Old Gen is now 360 / PS3, current gen is PS4, XONE.

And I don't know if the sales would cover the price of porting the game to Wii U.
So, if you want to play, buy a 360 / PS3 or a PC *Later will be released for sure*, or PS4 / XONE Consoles, hope for Rockstar to release to them.

A Wii U is more than capable of running GTA V, maybe at 60 FPS, but it's just not profitable <3

This thread is about gta 5 coming to the wii u, not gta 5 coming to the wii, as the new title seems to be suggesting.

The only games it runs at that speed is Mario, Sonic and Zelda.

 

LOL.

I think the Wii U hardware would suffer a bit with the heavy graphics and CPU consuming.

The hardware of the Wii U is compareable to the one of the PS3 and X360, with the difference that it has 2GB of RAM as opposed to the 512MB RAM of the consoles of the previous generation. So, if Rockstar did a good job at porting GTAV to the console, the game would be graphically on par with the already release versions. The amount of peds, vehicles, etc. on-screen would be presumably a bit higher since more RAM is available. I don't think the game will arrive for Wii U, though, because it just isn't worth the effort. Not to mention that it has a completely different audience than the Microsoft and Sony platforms, and there are only 5.86 million of these consoles on the market according to Nitendo.
 

This thread is about gta 5 coming to the wii u, not gta 5 coming to the wii, as the new title seems to be suggesting.

I've removed the Wii part, so the topic is solely about a Wii U version of GTAV now.

The Wii U is more focused towards the family audience, and the basic model of the wii U only has 8 GB, so GTA V on the Wii U is very unlikely. :lol:

Doubt it.

1). The amount the Wii U sold is absolutely sh*t, and it doesn't look like it will increase much further. This means a low amount of sales and players in GTA Online, making it unlikely to make enough money, if it would even make money.

2). Nintendo's online network is just sh*t.

3). Is the Wii U community really a community who plays games like GTA V massively like the console and PC community? I doubt it, most people buy Nintendo platforms solely for Nintendo's exclusives.

@RazorSharkHead 

 

 

It was called next gen before the PS4 and Xbone were announced. 

 

But, as we all know, the wii U will not be that significant. This, and other factors mean that a GTA V launch on the Wii U is highly unlikely.

The Wii U cannot handle GTA V's awesomeness.

Does R* know anything about the Wii U's hardware? It seems like it could be a lot of unnecessary work if they're not familiar with developing on that console. And on top of that, all I keep reading is how poor the Wii U sales have been. 

 

I love Nintendo franchises, but the Wii U still doesn't seem worth it. There are too many people like me for R* to even consider it as a good choice for a huge game like GTA V. Maybe Nintendo will get it right next time?  :/

Nintendo has a bad reputation of not listening. They expect developers to develop for there consol yet take no input from them. There is an interview with bethesda about it on youtube

No, it will never come to Wii U.

Wii U has a completely different demographics, it's a family/kids console and you can notice Nintendo mostly allows only ''nice'' games to be released on ot. Only lately, in an attempt to boost their console sales have they started allowing some more mature games to be released on their consoles.
Still, GTA might be to much for them. Not to mention that Rockstar has never developed a title for it and it simply wouldn't make sense to try and port it for a small audience that owns Wii U.

PS
Your old title was pure trolling, so be thankful you got a new one instead of a locked topic.

lol ... then nothing much left to say.

 

Though, I don't think it'll release on Wii U. Better luck next time (GTA VI) if Nintendo stay in business, IF AT ALL.

Since they discontinued the Game Cube, Nintendo only stays a float because of Mario and Pokemon. Had they not had exclusive rights to the two highest selling IPs, Nintendo would be bankrupt.

I see a lot of people who don't know anything about anything in this thread.

Guess what, Wii U has 2GB of RAM. Opposed to the other consoles 256/512MB. Also the WiiU has a minimum of 16GB, plus it supports unlimited external storage, so that's not an issue either. Rockstar has sold 30 million copies, which means there's virtually no risk in a port.

Remember, Wii U doesnt have to use the wand/nunchuk combo, and doesnt need to have tablet controller functionality.

If/When it does come out for WiiU, I'll buy it again.
