The game doesn't suit the Wii U fanbase.
Man at this rate I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. Iwata committed sudoku on himself

this is a gamecube game why?


Remake of a PS1/Saturn game? lol

I agree that it sucks that it will not be going to Wii U. But since PC, PS4, and Xbone are all x86, you only really need one port that works on all of those systems. PS3 and X360 already have huge install bases, so its only reasonable.

Nintendo brought Megaman to Smash Bros. They obviously thought of that as an offense and decided to fight back by limiting releases on their consoles...


This is the most logical response

Becsuse Resident Evil games have histotically sold poorly on Nintendo consoles, and the Wii U install base is currently tiny as-is.


But Resident Evil 4 was a GameCube exclusive for a long time, and its still hailed as one of the best RE games ever.

The Wii U board is seriously just awful.

This, it's not 4 player local only co-op, or an indie game

And I don't think it broke 500k lifetime sales on the Cube. It was a magnificent game but poor sales forced them to go against the creator's wishes and port it to PS2.

Look, I love the Wii U and I will support it until Nintendo ceases to, but we all have to be realistic about it's position in the matketplace. It's architecture and design (read: gamepad) make porting games to it difficult (read: expensive) and in the current climate there's no reason for developers to think they will recoup the extra costs. The Xbone may have a slightly smaller install base (which I've heard conflicting information on so I'm not even sure that's the case), but it's architecture is so similar to PS4 that porting to it is cheap and easy, so it's more likely to recoup costs for them.

Oh, according to Wikipedia re4 sold 1.6 milion on GCN, my mistake. PS2 did outsell it by a fairly wide margin though with 2.2 million sales.

Because of the userbase. Both its small size and its unwilliness to buy 3rd party games.
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.
