Naughty Dog “Not Completely Sold” On Wii U

on July 14, 2011 11:55 AM

Although this is not exactly surprising news, Uncharted developer Naughty Dog has recently stated in an interview with Nowgamer that while the Wii U looks great and all, they are not “completely sold yet.” This statement comes from Justin Richmond, game director for the upcoming Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, and whose previous experience includes design work on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Bioshock Check below to how see Richmond’s reaction to the capabilities of the Wii U:

To be honest with you, the idea of it is very, very cool. But there’s nothing that the Wii U has that the Vita and PS3 doesn’t. You know, it’s an interesting piece of technology, and I’m interested to see how people use it.

I’m not completely sold yet. That the screen isn’t multi-touch, that’s a little weird. It seems there are some very strange holes in it, but to be fair, last time I was sceptical of the original Wii, and look at how that did. I’m sure that he games they make for Wii U will be amazing.

There you have it, Naughty Dog certainty won’t be making any Wii U games in the far foreseeable future, although it is always possible that their stance can reverse on this sort of thing. Still, that statement is a bit flawed, as according to the bits we do know about the Wii U at this point, it will be much different than both the PS3 and PS Vita.
