    It will heavily depend on the architecture of Wii successor.
    If porting it from PS3 does not prove too costly they would do it I guess.

    Well, Nintendo claimed to be targeting more hard-core gamers with the 3DS, I don't see why the Wii2 would change that. It's simply branching out to attract more players which is a smart move.

    Can't see why not, it has a lot going for it.

    Its on a console that isn't hacked.
    Shared development costs with PC/360/PS3
    Early launch games do tend to sell better than later ones.
    Its a proper GTA, a lot of people hated that GTA:CC was a overhead game, I personally hated that it wasn't as much fun as GTA 1 & 2.
    It wont be shit like Manhunt 2.
    It wont be an old game like Bully or Table Tennis.

    ...Did you read what you said before you said it? Please don't use words just because they sound good. Not to be rude, but the "architecture" wouldn't determine much besides the aesthetics of the Wii2.

    Actually it would determine a lot. It could determine exactly how easy or difficult it is to develop on.

    It wouldn't determine the internals. It would, how they would be placed, but it's more likely that the internals would be part of deciding the aesthetics, not vice-versa (though it is possible in some cases).

    i think mkoo meant: architecture as CPU architecture... or something like that, and not like the "Outside" of the wii2 xD

    Me too.

    To me it's an obvious choice for them to continue with the PowerPC from IBM.
    Gives them good BC and Cell-like processing.

    Look at the NDS and Gameboy consoles and see what titles they had.

    I know, it's just one of my pet peeves is when someone uses a word just because it sounds nice or intelligent rather than if it actually makes sense.

    Anyway, I'm not super surprised. I just hope this changes the mainstream's thoughts towards Nintendo (not that I care, but it's annoying hearing "HERP DERP FPS Shooters HERP DERP Xbox 360 and PS3" all of the time).

    Mines people mispronouncing words to make them sound fancier, so I know where you are coming from, but architecture does commonly mean "the specific type of silicon and how it's wired together" when used about computers, not like architecture as in "pretty drawings for an engineer to take a look at and say "that won't work"".

    There you go
    What I meant was CPU design or console architecture as a whole.
    There were some rumors about Nintendo is going to use ATI Fusion which is a AMD64 platform (x86-64 as intel calls it)
    If Nintendo makes a system with drastically different cpu design than the other consoles on the market the games primarily for Xbox or PS won't get ported.

    You might say "hey PS3 uses Cell which is different" But PS3 has a audience who plays games like GTA
    Rockstar won't risk releasing a "hardcore" game on a Nintendo home conolse if it cost them too much to develop.

    But who knows maybe Nintendo will have ATI produce them a special version of Fusion.
    Or simply pay Rockstar to release GTA on Wii successor. To draw attention of a different audience

    Finally Nintendo is securing some good 3rd (2nd?) party developed games for their new console. I'm so excited for the Project Cafe!

    Chinatown Wars bombed completely. I'm not sure about the success of GTA and GTA2 on the GBA.

    I don't know, I have a feeling that Nintendo is just trying to win back the "core" audience by pushing some "core" launch titles (like SSFIV on the 3DS, possibly this on the Wii). Whether people will buy into it is a different thing though.

    I'll wait to see how the "Wii 2" version stacks up against the other versions though.

    I love it when people assume something without researching it just because they want it to be true...

    On Topic: I don`t find enjoyment out of GTA, so I don`t really care. I`d much rather see Shenmue III on WiiHD/2 [​IMG]

    I love being able to see ten feet infront of me in any direction, unless I'm driving really fast at which point my framerate drops completely.

    I guess this means CAFE will get the superior console version just like 360 got the superior console version of GTA IV.

    CAFE will be the most powerful console on the market when this game launches in fall 2012. So it only makes sense.
