Gearbox: Wii U is a ‘powerful, powerful machine’, will have the best version of Aliens Colonial Marines
Gearbox is coming out again and saying not to worry about the Wii U’s graphics:
“[Creating the Wii U version] has been pretty easy,” he told Eurogamer. “The Wii U is a powerful, powerful machine and it can do a lot of cool new things. And so the game itself, moving it over to work on the Wii U was not much of a chore.
“You can imagine some cool features, for sure,” Burleson said. “It’s not hard to imagine some cool features.”
The Wii U’s power, though, is “one thing I can’t talk about”, he said. “Actually nailing the specs, they haven’t come out with them yet.”
But, the Wii U version of Aliens will “be better” than the PS3 and Xbox 360 version in terms of visuals, he confirmed. Why? Because of “more modern tech”.
What Burleson is alluding to here is the suggestion that because the Wii U contains modern components, it will by default be more powerful than the ageing PS3 and Xbox 360.
How, exactly, will it be better? “You’ll have to wait and see,” Burleson teased. “Just trust me on that one.”
