    So Randy Pitchford wasn't lying after all "The Wii U is the definitive version." It is a shame the game wasn’t canned prior to the piss poor reviews. Reading the doom and gloom Wii U hate articles claiming “Top third party developers aren’t making games for the Wii U” would have made great reading.

    Seriously what the hell happened. The old demo looked on another level. I fucking hate Pitchfork.

    Yes because everybody knows 4 months actually equals 12 months...

    Why are you here? You don't appear to be very interested in the console, less than highlighting doom and gloom to get a rise out of ecosse or whoever.

    Surely your time would be better spent reading a thread about something that interests you.

    Is this Randy Pitchfork some sort of sexy weapon?

    Is that Wii U Need for Speed game by Criterion? I was really impressed at how well they optimised Burnout Paradise on 360 and PS3 - heck, even the PC version runs brilliantly on my Shite-o-matic old PC.

    So if it's them, I have high hopes for a well optimised port. Though I'd settle for playable.
    there is a bloke on another forum I post on who has been working on this. He says that, on paper, the wii u should be the best version. But also that he doesn't actually think that is true. At all.
    link?
    No link as it's a reg only site but you can have a quote (which is possibly the same as Jazzy_Geoff is referring to):

    in *theory* the Wii U version is the best of the consoles, cos it's got extra stuff added in, and virtually nothing taken away from the main consoles (multiplayer dropped from 8 to 6 cos the Wii U can't handle multiplayer at all). We've got a touch screen map and some co-driver navigation stuff on the GamePad so you can play it co-op in a way, but it's fairly limited. We've got Miis and Mario homages and stuff (green pipes you drive into and get little mario kart cars). It's got some of the DLC from the consoles built in as standard.

    But...I'm still not convinced. It's been a very, very haphazard project to work on, and I think that's probably a common story for a lot of these Wii U games. If you've got both consoles I'd still be tempted to buy the 360 one. But maybe I just don't like the Wii U.
    It's the overwhelmingly positive experience of developing on it that really shines through.

    @MrSemprini Very unlikely that the quote even originates from an actual development source.
    A: It is very unprofessional, unlikely a member of the actual development team would say something like that unless they have an underlying hate for Nintendo.
    B: It's clearly not a haphazard project to work on going from the article on the front page - to quote "There's a switch in our build pipeline that says 'use PC textures' and we flipped that and that was all," Hamadi laughs. "I can take no credit for that, it was literally ten minutes' work... we are using PS3/360 geometry. It's just the textures we upgraded."
    C: The Co-op play is not limited in the slightest and you can from the vids that it's alot of fun, like a batshit crazy debug mode, and they've still got more they can add.

    It's not definitive on the other inferior platforms though.

    I watched some of that NFS gameplay vid, you can turn off the traffic? Isn't that err...cheating?

    Give me £5 I'm worth it.

    True that, except PC.

    Although if you can wait a month after launch it'll probably be £20 on the Wii U, too.

    Just in case you're not reading the other threads, I'm offering my Wii U for £250, posted to you by Saturday.

    Pfft, do the other versions let you pointlessly change the time of day mid race? I don't think so.

    Could well be, it's the internet and not unknown for people to be a little less than honest when it comes to posting. Take this with a similar pinch of salt from the same source:

    The Wii U has some nice components, and some absolutely awful ones.

    In our game, out next month, the textures are the highest resolution of the consoles. but that doesn't really matter much when the CPU stutters and the cars glitch around from time to time because the rest of the console can't handle it. the Wii U is like amazing track tyres and a nitrous injection system attached to a soap box derby car.
