DICE lacking the "bright idea" that will integrate Wii U controls into the game...

Earlier this year at Nintendo's E3 conference, the CEO of EA, John Riccitiello dropped a strong hint about the possibility of developing Battlefield 3 for the Wii U; a hint that now appears to have been little more than preliminary hype as the publisher attempted to test the Wii U waters.

Speaking with the Metro, one of they key developers behind Battlefield 3, Patrick Liu has now poured some cold water over the speculation: “I think what he [EA boss John Riccitello] said was that we're looking into what we can do with the Wii U, but there is nothing planned to be honest.”

It seems DICE, the studio which develops EA's Battlefield games, does have Wii U devkits within its four walls but hasn't been able to brainstorm a way of tailoring a Battlefield 3 game specifically to the console's unique control set.

“I'm a big fan of Nintendo myself,” said Liu, “just looking at what they've done with the Wii and the Wii U… but we have to come up with something that really uses their controls. And until we get that bright idea of what to do with the new controls I don't think there's any point in making another version that's just the same as everyone else.”

We don't want to sound cynical here or anything (heaven forbid), but didn't Nintendo's Wii U E3 trailer show a gun attachment using the touchpad as an aiming scope? Seems like a good fit for Battleifield 3 is all. Perhaps there are stronger forces at work here...

why does everyone who thinks they know what their talking about go on about the ps3 and the 360 using a microsoft graphics subroutine only found in PC's "Direct-X" and why DX-9 when the 360 launched at the same time as vista (DX-10), why dont all you morons just get a DX-9 graphics card and try to run the latest games like dirt 3 @ 1080p, im almost certain you cant or it'll run but at a much jerkier frame rate and certainly no where near 30 fps let alone 60 fps.

 

now for all you moronic PC fanboys out there did you forget some PC games still use open GL 3.0 i mean come on how old is that, or what about D3D (Direct 3D), grapics routines and proccess is done completly differently on PC's compared to consoles they are deicated games machines and with age the graphic on them gradually gets pushed right to their limits where as most PC gamers barely puch their graphcs cards to the limit as there upgrading every 12 months to the latest hardware ( a bit pointless unless youve got money to waste ).

sorry tom but if you think sony or microsoft demonstrated that everyone wanted HD this past gen then by that your theory is flawed, nintendo bought somthing new rather than a graphics update and the Wii quite literally dominated and still is dominating this gen using last gen graphics, what kinds of leaps forward do you expect there to be when 1080p will be the standard for at least another 10 years.

 

so far this gen even owning both a ps3 and 360 id still say the wii is the most inovative console this gen and nintendo obviously understand what people rather than just gamers want, also there is at least a further 9 months before the Wii U is even out so further improvements can be made.
