no bioshock infinite for wii u?

#1GigerSupremePosted 3/22/2013 11:31:37 AM
why wasnt there a version for wiiu? just seems like an important release is all... you would think you would want to have one of the highest profile game of 2013.

i dunno, maybe im wrong.

Because

1. The game was years in development so by the time they got a dev kit for the Wii U chances are it would postpone other console releases

2. The user base is really small so porting it would have been a mistake.

I personally am not interested in the Bioshock series but more games is always better.

Troll topic? It's quite clear that Bioshock Infinite was never announced for the Wii U. It's the equivalent of me going to the PS3 or Xbox 360 boards and asking no Bayonette 2 for PS3/Xbox360?

thats why you outsource an external studio to handle the porting/conversion. this is a very common practice for ps3 games that get ported from 360 games.

And yet outsourcing might give you lower quality games that might not even understand how to properly port to the Wii U.

Point being is that it's possible to goof it up, and there is still the user base being too small to warrant it.
