With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

Metro: Last Light Dev Claims Wii U CPU Is "Horrible"

Posted on Tuesday, November 20 @ 13:11:03 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
4A Games, the development team behind Metro: Last Light, isn't too fond of the Wii U's CPU. In fact, it's so terrible that the studio is opting out of bringing their upcoming first-person shooter to the system.

In an interview with NowGamer, chief technical officer Oles Shishkovtsov went so far as to say that the "Wii U has a horrible, slow CPU.” THQ's Huw Beynon, echoed Shishkovtsov's sentiment, saying that all the effort involved in porting Metro: Last Light simply isn't worth it.

We had an early look at it, we thought we could probably do it, but in terms of the impact we would make on the overall quality of the game – potentially to its detriment – we just figured it wasn’t worth pursuing at this time. It’s something we might return to. I really couldn’t make any promises, though.

This certainly doesn't bode well for the future of third-party support on the Wii U. We'll just have to wait and see whether or not Nintendo will be able to convince other studios to develop for their console in the coming months.
