Low user base and it would take time to develop the game.

This.

Also, you seem really concerned with GTA V not being on Wii U. Why is that? Are you going to literally die if it isn't on Wii U?

It seems to have caused a lot of anger, finger-pointing, denial, and sour grapes (i.e. I don't care anyway!)

I think it's an interesting topic for discussion.

Because you and other keep bring it up while ignoring the two simple facts.

Low User Base

Isn't it current gen only? PS4 and Xbone aren't getting it either, so I don't see why it should be on Wii U. Unless they make a remastered version or something.

Wii U has a lot more in common with PS3/360 than with PS4/Xbone. Plus Wii U gets a lot of other current-gen games that look and play pretty much identically to the PS3/360 versions.

Good point. But they'd need like a year or two after the PS3/360 release to port on Wii U with new features. And even then, you could get the original version much cheaper. I think they just make a new one instead of porting it imo.

Except it's configuration is closer to the PS4/XB1. Just because ports of PS3/360 games were designed to look and run like PS3/360 games doesn't mean it's limited to PS3/360 capabilities.
