    people complained about it on gonintendo, why is this a bad thing? there are still plenty of exclusives on the wii, it's just not going to be the exact game as the ps360 version, dosn't mean it's going to be worse....

    instead of making it a port, whhy not make a different version? dont say that ps2 is same as wii because ps2 was weaker than gamecube and wii is 2.5 times stronger than wii.

    still(i edited my post) the wii will still have exclusives, and ports are never exactly the same, the same development team made cod 3 for all systems, but it definitely looked better on ps6/360,

    no we are not comparing wii to 360/ps3. we are saying that why make it a PS2 port?

    because ports are a cheaper alternative? i think that's pretty obvious

    i'm comparing wii to 360/ps3

    if cod3(i'm only using cod:3, cause it's a game commonly used to see the differences of all three systems) can be ports form the wii to 360, and being a good game for both systems, AND different.......... why is having the wii version of sw:tfu being a port from ps2 a bad thing? obviously they're going to up the graphics, and again, there are STILL exclusive modes for the wii,


    imo, there is nothing wrong from this......ports aren't exactly the same...

    actually, if i remember correctly, cod3 was a wii port of the 360/ps3 game.

    my point is that why make a port of a game from a 10 year old system for a new system? its absurd.

    okay, look at it this way; it was out for xbox, ps2, wii 360 and ps3, and it's gotton plenty of good reviews for all systems, and they made more money from people who didn't own any of the nexgen consoles...

    because they make more money that way. my point is that why is that a bad thing?

    If it means getting the game out on all systems, they are going to do what they can do that and get good sales. This means porting different versions, like Ps2 for Wii. It will still end up being good, and probably be one of the better ports out there.

    Plus the Wii version is a little different, 5 different levels or something?
    So its not all bad.

    yeah it did, maybe not for the wii, but for ps2, ps3, xbox and xbox 360 it got all good reviews, so my point is still valid,

    Cod3 was the worst of the series.

    ok

    a) that's opinionated
    b) that doesn't really matter
    and
    c) it still got good reviews for 4 systems, and two of them were last gen and two of them were this gen

    The Wii is a giant waste of potential!

    The 360 is unreliable and has expensive online.

    The PS3 is expensive but at least it has free online.

    Best gaming generation ever?


    Seriously wtf all i play is Nintendo games and a PC fps every once and a while, this generation could be amazing but it isn't.

    whoever said competition is a good thing can go have intercourse with himself.

    yay rants.


    . . . .

    this itself isn't a big deal i'm just grumpy.

    Is a bit lazy. I'm surprised they're still commited to the PS2. I also don't like the way theres games that are only on the PS2 and Wii, it gives the impression that they're not good enough for the PS3 and 360.
