    Finally some good news about the Wii U, by this I mean, we won't be seeing a mediocre port so better to just not release it at all. :)

    Pretty sad for people who backed it specifically for the Wii U but was anyone not expecting this? Unless they released a horribly gimped version it wasn't going to happen.

    I wonder why Wii U gamers even give a shit about games like Devil's Third, Project C.A.R.S, Watch Dogs and so on, taking for example Watch Dogs was a pile of poo on the Wii U, same's going for DT and Project C.A.R S would've run like crap (although a really good game if you're into the whole simulator racing stuff).

    Want a racing game on the Wii U that isn't Mario Kart or Sonic Kart? Most Wanted. The game looks and plays freaking awesome (minus some framerate slowdowns).

    Here's the transcript of the meeting held today at the studio:

    Programmer 1: Uh oh, the Wii U version is having performance issues.
    Programmer 2: It is? Should we tone down the physics and graphical detail a bit to get better performance?
    Programmer 1: Yeah, that could work, let's ask the boss, say, Ian, what do you suggest we do? The Wii U port's having performance issues.
    Ian Bell: Lol cancel the game, it's not worth dumbing the graphics down LMAO
    Programmer 2: You sure that'd be wise, boss? I mean, people did crowdfund this through Kickstarter for the Wii U version.
    Ian Bell: I know, but we have their money now, so they've no right to complain olololol *commence diabolical laughter while rubbing hands like a mad scientist*

    Anyone who uses the word "fanboy" in their argument has no credibility to said argument :creep: :rofl2: I could just as easily use the term Sony or Microsoft Fanboy, but where would that get me?

    Playing that right now. It really is pretty good despite it coming from EA.

    Guys, remember, they tried cutting down on the game's overall look and performance to get it functional on the Wii U. Last I recall, they were having issues having an even somewhat passable FPS at 720p. Nobody can be surprised that they've finally just given up on it. And otherwise, people severely overestimate how much funding came from Wii U owners. Does anybody realize how few Wii U owners buy third party content, how few of them are aware of crowdfunding in general, and how many may have actually taken part in the Project CARS crowdfunding campaign? Yeah, I feel bad for the 100 or 200 people that tossed their money in expecting a Wii U version, but they ultimately make up only a small fraction of the total funding the game received, which is exactly why this isn't a bigger deal.

    In the long run, this is the risk you take with crowdfunding anything. You risk not getting the product you paid for. It's one of the major risks of the system.

    They lied every step of the way to all Nintendo users.

    Obviously if i had funded the game, i would without a doubt sue them... really, they always stated the game would be released.

    Hate to say it, but they never should have even bothered trying to port it over if it was just going to go to shit anyways. Sorry, but that's my opinion, and I'm a Wii U owner, and yet, it doesn't pain me to say that. SMS never should have had crowdfunding, now that Wii U owners are fucked out of their donations, are they not?

    They never should have even bothered, that way, no one would be let down.

    So, erm...how long is this game been in development? I'm not sure anymore, but it could have been one of those "these games will come to the wiiu soon" announcements when the wiiu (and its stupid name) was first revealed.

    They were certainly aiming for "next gen", alright. :tpi:


    I normally don't mind waiting a bit longer for a more polished game (*looks at GTA V*), but I've got a sneaking suspicion they're more likely going to do a EA mass effect on them ("you can get this semi-crippled game for your next-next-gen nintendo console for full price, or you can get the GOTY edition on PC in a humble bundle...and if you choose the latter we'll never develop for ninty again! :D ").

    Well, it's an effective, but very damning thing for companies to do. Why can't they just fund their own sodding games with their own money? Too much effort? :creep: Cowards.
