Grand Theft Auto is a humongous brand and the question most people are asking is whether the game will hit the first next-gen system to arrive this year. That’s right, the Wii U.
Nintendo’s consoles don’t really get a lot of third-party support due to reasons ranging from poor support to sales, but seeing as how the Wii U is supposed to be a machine for the core, losing out on GTA 5 seems to be something that Nintendo cannot afford.
“Many gamers believe that GTA V won’t be coming to the Wii U, but look what happened with Black Ops 2. Not only is the latest Call of Duty game arriving on the Wii U in its complete entirety, ie no content cut like the Wii, but the Wii U version is also going to have enhanced functionality thanks to the touchscreen controller as well,” product-reviews website speculated.
I sort of agree with them, the Wii U is clearly more powerful than the current gen consoles when it comes to pure horsepower, so there shouldn’t be a question of the console not being able to run the game. It depends on Take Two and Nintendo to work out a deal, and make sure that GTA 5 launches day 1 on the platform along with the current gen consoles.
If this happens, some people would rather prefer to buy it on the Wii U than PS3/360 because, yeah, Wii U is a next-gen console. This could help Nintendo achieve a significant user base, which could prove beneficial to them in the future.
