Are you holding out for a Wii version of Gears of War, complete with chainsaw motion controls? Well, I wouldnâ€™t hold your breath. According to Epic Gamesâ€™ president, Mike Capps, the developer will never make a game for the Wii. When asked about it, Capps stated, â€œNo, we go forward, not back. It makes more sense for us to invest in the next-generation tech.â€ He then went on to discuss why he thinks the Nintendoâ€™s machine has been so popular:
Itâ€™s a virus where you buy it and you play it with your friends and theyâ€™re like, â€œOh my God thatâ€™s so cool, Iâ€™m gonna go buy it.â€ So you stop playing it after two months, but they buy it and they stop playing it after two months but theyâ€™ve showed it to someone else who then go out and buy it and so on. Everyone I know bought one and nobody turns it on. Obviously thereâ€™s a class of people who really love it and enjoy it and are getting into the games but Iâ€™m still waiting for that one game that makes me play it.
Wow, itâ€™s like he was specifically talking about me and my Wii-owning friends. Mineâ€™s been collecting dust for awhile now, in fact. So I guess you can take this news for what it is though. In the debate of whether graphics truly represent the next-generation of gaming, Epic would apparently argue that they do.
