Posted on October 28, 2007, Jonathan Will Wright Confirms Spore for the Wii
No wonder Will Wright’s been recently making a point of calling the Wii “the only next gen system [he's] seen.” Turns out the rumors that Spore was delayed so it could be adapted for a simultaneous console release are true, and it’s coming to none other than Nintendo’s system. Wright let slip this bit of information in a recent interview with Guardian Unlimited:
“We’re doing Spore on the Wii, and we did MySims. It takes signifcant re-thinking to work out how you’re going to do it. PS3 and Xbox 360 are similar enough that you can basically use the same system for both. So it comes down to what the interesting major platforms are and which markets we want to hit.”
He didn’t mention however if the Wii version would support the same online community features as its PC counterpart. If Nintendo’s past is any indicator though, I wouldn’t hold my breath. Unless you’re a rabid Wii fanboy (or any console fanboy for that matter), then please, do hold your breath. For as long it takes.
