    Man I hate reggie " if they build a bottoms-up game that takes advantage of what we do well, I'd love to see it on the platform" Thats exactly what we dont want... they'll just rush a new game and put gimicky controls in, then reggie will like it -___-

    So you'd rather a port with motion controls tacked on?

    A new GTA on Wii could be very cool, especially with that new motionplus

    yes.

    I'd love a port since i havn't played any of the other GTA's because I dont have a playstation or xbox... To me if they make a brand new game exclusive to the wii they'll rush it and make it suck because they know not as many people would buy it since its a 'kiddy' console and wouldnt make as much money from it... Thats what I feel anyway.

    Not only that reason, but hopefully you know what I mean. I just dont want a lower grade version when I can have a port of the one that everyone seems to be so fond of!!!

    depends what kind of motion controls you mean, generally I hate them in general unless its for somthing like shooting. Unless its kind of like godfather... that seemed to work really well.

    That's ridiculous. Why would someone ever welcome a port over a game designed specifically for the console. And on what grounds would it be rushed? What is the "rush"? I've not known Rockstar to make poor quality games (from what I have played) and they certainly don't "Rush" anything (look at GTA IV's development cycle). Motion controls can work quite well when done properly, the controls will be certainly more gimmicky if they add them to a port.

    it would probably include mario in it and instead of shooting bullets you shoot stars and flowers, blood and gore would be removed from the pal version or banned completely lol

    I'd rather not see a new GTA game on the Wii at all.
    Is there anything wrong with GTA IV?
    Why do you want an inferior game? [​IMG]
    It'd just waste Rockstar's ressources, meaning that the next proper GTA (or GTA IV add-on/download content, or whatever they're planning) would take even longer to be finished.

    Indeed.. when making stuff for the Wii, you can't use the full potential of the controls with just a port..

    Considering how much fun I had with Bully on the Wii, A GTA game would be very welcome.


    Indeed.. and I want to play RE5 soon.. so let's all tell Capcom to stop with the development of Bionic Comando, SFIV, Megaman 9 and everything else!

    Rockstar is not a team of 5 people you know? [​IMG]

    nothing rockstar could ever squeze out of the weak wii horsepower would come even close to gta4.

    why compare everything to gta4?

    it's like saying:

    "why make a final fantasy game for DS? it won't even come close to FF Versus XIII"

    So.. what people here are saying is "Let's stop making games for every console and make games only for the PS3 since it has the better graphics.. or better! Let's make only PC games and require everyone to have 8GB RAM and a 2GB Graphics card!"

    [​IMG]

    What the Wii lacks in graphics, it compensates on controls.. GTA on the Wii would have a lot better controls than any other console (not on the PC though [​IMG]), sure.. it wouldn't be as pretty.. but GTA games were never famous because of it's visuals anyway, if it has a great story and a free and immersing world like the other games, I would buy it for sure.

    Just imagine a Wii-GTA with RE4-like controls. That would work and would be great.

    If they dont have a 360 or PS3 to play the game [​IMG]

    Just from experience. I cant think of any games of the top of me head, but generally games that dont come out to other consoles dont come out for a reason, I know about the wii controls situation but realistically they can all be easily changed to work on a PS3 controller. Like skate it for instance, a wii/ds exclusive (As far as I know) that might actually be good but still never as good as the original skate. Personally I would prefer to have the real deal, not some game that hasnt been developed for as long and that rockstar honestly wouldnt care about as much as games like vice city, san andreas and IV.

    Thats why I personally would like a port... Obviously if I'd played the game on the 360/PS3 before I would want a brand new game, but I havn't.
