I thought ONM pretty much gave this one away last week when they uploaded the new GTA trailer to their youtube channel, before quickly deleting it when they realised?

Either way, I hope it does come out for wii U, since if it's going to be competing with the other consoles it needs to get equally strong third-party support.

It sounds as if theyre saying that they are considering it based on how well game like AC3 and BLOPS2 sell.

It's one of those multiformat games vital to a console's success amongst the core. Yes please.

I would absolutely love it if this came to the Wii U! It could potentially happen, the PC version of the game hasn't even been officially announced either, but that will definitely happen at some point. They have a year to do it, come RockStar PLEASE!.

To be honest, you could buy a crappy xbox for £60 now. If any nintendo fan was dieing to play GTA it would be pretty easy to get
When I go out some people ask me-Hey what's with the name. Well My real surname is Newcomb. And its sounds like Nukem as in Duke Nukem the game character (never played it, im two young). So I have adopted it and put in frustrating capital letters.

Come on Rockstar! Come on Nintendo! If the WiiU is to truly be a success and to be as taken as seriously as Nintendo want, then games like this must appear on it.

I clicked on the video and it told me it was private. Anyway, GTA can only boost Wii U. We've seen how good COD is now, now the other big multi-format titles should follow suit.

These are my thoughts aswell and in a way as Nintendo gamers we need to support third party titles to encourage others (such as Rockstar) to bring their games this way.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it's all about?!

That was a mistake. Uploaded by someone else who doesn't work for ONM and shared to our video player. Don't read anything into it.

The way it sounds to me is that Rockstar is waiting to see how well the Wii U is recieved and its sales figures to see if it's commercially viable to release it on an additional console. While it makes excellent business sence, the problem I see for the gamers with this is the potential Wii U version could just end up have hastily tacked-on GamePad features, which would pale in comparison to games like Darksiders and Aliens where the Wii U version has been carefully considered by their developers for much longer.

I don't think it really matters if they don't even use the Gamepad for GTA V.

Wii U would benefit greatly from GTAV, it would be easy enough for them to even get the PS360 version running on it, improve the graphics, add Miiverse functionality and some gamepad features.
Easy. Done!
Come on Rockstar! Does that sound too hard?
I really hope that they realise just how much Wii U needs to have games like this!
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

It's not a case of whether the Wii U needs GTA V, it's a case of whether GTA V needs the Wii U.

Which it doesn't.

The sort of person who would play GTA V almost certainly already has a PS3 or 360 (or both), so Rockstar don't need to waste money on a Wii U port as they're not really missing out on sales.

Now, if the Wii U was massively more powerful, or suddenly ended up with a huge portion of the market, then yes - GTA V for it makes sense. At the moment though? Not really.
Game Over, Yeah!!

Hope wii u gets it, I'd definitely buy the wii u version. I'm hoping there's enough fans wanting the wii u version to justify the release.
