    Deep in GBAtemp addiction
    *notices Wii U isn't mentioned*
    I can KINDA understand some argument about market shares versus that little bit of extra development effort required to port to PPC (although I really dobt something like this would NEED processor-specific optimizations) but don't tell me the Wii U's hardware just can't handle this.

    Wii U can't handle those pixels. Taste the power of next gen hardware!

    I get that Tetris is a simple game aesthetically... but come on. This looks like a flash game.

    Yeah I think Ultimate really belongs to the Nintendo DS game, that was awesome!

    Wii U can't calculate the physics of the blocks falling, also in 2-4 player mode the player with the pad will have the edge having a whole screen for himself. fair play or no tetris for U

    First 1080p/60fps this gen game confirmed!

    But when talking about tetris all versions seems to always miss things. How hard is it to make simply best tetris game with all the options and modes?
    And why no PC master race version - any version at all: http://store.steampowered.com/search/?snr=1_4_4__12&term=tetris

    E: I'M BLIND! PC as well :D

    agreed, not very aesthetically pleasing at all, looks very bare bones, even the EA version of tetris was more better looking than this.

    why do they even bother? tetris deluxe for gameboy color already was the best game ever.

    This is supposed to be PC, but probably Uplay.

    Tetris? Meh, I'd rather they released Pac-Man for it that Namco Bandai's published on 360/PS3 that game is bloody awesome and addictive!

    Not saying Tetris isn't but between the two, Pac-Man would be my choice.

    This is the one!

    The £11.99 package sounds like a pretty good deal but this PC that I'm using isn't able to play modern games.

    Well, I am happy with my Tetris™ for Game Boy, so it isn't really worth to buy an "Ultimate Edition", c'mon, it is Tetris! :P

    Sadly it will probably be Tetris company condoned and I have not liked a lot of what they have done in recent years, both in the courtroom and in terms of their terming what tetris is/should be.

    That said they could still surprise me and get something done.

    People actually liked Tetris? I thought people only played it because it was forced upon everyone who ever bought a Gameboy.
