Why Wii U can't handle GTA V

#111VeryDarkSoulPosted 8/3/2013 1:45:57 PM
I have no idea what TC is talking about. I've played a lot of games off my kingston flash drive, including GTA 4, and I have no loading problems.

I don't understand complaints about the CPU; Crytek said the Wii U ran Crysis 3 "Beautifully". Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Crysis 3 heavy on CPU, and needs DX11?

Clearly not, since it ran on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Im calling BS on the people saying they wont buy it due to the mandatory install. Imagine, your going to the store, holding your wallet like your first ever dollar. You proceed to to get GTAV, but on the way to the cashier you notice something, MANDATORY INSTALL. NO! how could such an atrocious thing happen to you! They expect you to actually use some space? How dare they. How. Dare. They. You will just have to boycott Rockstar now forever.


Isn't that stupid? I can't imagine why someone would want to play off the disc rather than installing to the hard drive. I especially can't imagine why people think mandatory installs are so offensive.

Mandatory installs have been a fact of PC gaming for forever, and it's one of the reasons PC gaming is better than consoles.


My PC's disc drive is 8x faster than the PS4's and has a 2 TB hard drive.

Again, if I wanted to play on my PC I would play on my PC.

The Wii U can handle it
It's just that GTA V won't be on Eighth Gen consoles, and Wii U is Eighth Gen so it won't be released on it!

GTV 5 on Wii U? If games like Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy and other big shots aren't coming to Wii U why even bother GTA 5 to ever come on Wii U?

The only 3rd parties that are really interested on Wii U is ubisoft and activision, other than those 2 I don't see anyone porting games to Wii U anymore.

Maybe Rockstar should hire you to help them redesign their game engine just so GTA V can run on a system with a 3.6 million (and barely growing) install base, most of whom don't care about GTA anyway.


TC: "It can't do it because <insert argument>"
People: "Yes it can, because <insert logic>"
TC: "Well, it's actually because <insert different argument>"

Thank you TC for giving us a laugh at your expense.


This. You destroyed his OP, so he had to shift a few goal posts. Pathetic.

You know the gaming industry is **** when the biggest announcement is that a console can play used games and won't totally screw you over.

We all know that the Wii U is weaker than the PS3 or XBOX 360. Games that run fine on those consoles, run slower on the Wii U. That's not a big deal to Nintendo fans, who only want games published by Nintendo.

The only good consoles that came out from Nintendo were the Nes and the Snes. Everything else has been a joke.

wii u can handle gta v but about as good as ps3 and 360... so there is no point doing it for the minuscule wii userbase..
