Grand Theft Auto Wii?

Grand Theft Auto Wii?

Could Rockstar be working on a Grand Theft Auto game for the Wii? It certainly seems likely...

With Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars set for release on the Nintendo DS before February next year, one of the major questions on the minds of many GTA fans is whether or not GTA will see a release on the Wii.

Rockstar, which has in the past showed no reluctance to release more mature titles on Nintendo's family console (such as Bully and Manhunt 2), gently hinted that it may be on the cards too in a recent comment to Kotaku.

"Without commenting specifically on whether GTA is coming to the Wii or not, I will say that Nintendo and Take-Two work very very well together," Take-Two CEO Ben Feder explained.

"Rockstar and Nintendo work very well together. We intend to continue to grow that relationship.

Feder went on to explain that Rockstar has invested a huge amount of time and effort into working with Nintendo and isn't exactly eager to see that investment wasted. Though Feder didn't exactly announce any new products during the conference call, there was apparently a feeling that he wasn't far off.

In the past Rockstar has been a company firmly focused at developing for the Xbox and PlayStation, but there has been a string of titles on other systems which certainly give the Rockstar/Nintendo alliance some precedence.

Would you like to see GTA Wii, or would you rather see a PC exclusive release? Stupid question, we know, but humour us in the forums.

I'd rather see something that wouldn't play like arse on the Wii, thanks.

GTA IV would either look terrible, be laggy, suck control wise, or a combination of all three. Personally, I can't think of a less appropriate platform for it to be made available on.

@liratheal: So it would be pretty much the same as the 360/ps3 version then? :P

I wouldn't mind a wii version, it's not like there haven't been any gta's on older consoles. Controls would prob be similar to SMG, c-stick for movement, d-pad for camera. Then use the wiimote +a and b button for accurate shooting and melee. Graphics wouldn't be too good, but gta4's weren't either. I wouldn't mind san andreas like graphics, i still play the pc version and they don't bother me at all. 5th September 2008, 12:34 Quote

It'll sell, but it won't be a reason to buy a Wii, and it'll make them money so meh

I hope you're kidding. If you think the 360/PS3 versions look bad, wait til this version.....

Why is everyone assuming that they would port GTAIV to the Wii? I would assume that all this means is that rockstar will be making GTA games for the Wii in the future, not porting games they've already made. Except if they wanted to port GTA2 then I would be all over it.
