The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

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

Posted on Tuesday, November 20 @ 13:11:03 PST by Alex_Osborn
4A Games, the development team behindMetro: 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 withNowGamer, chief technical officer Oles Shishkovtsov went so far as to say that the "Wii U has a horrible, slow CPU.” THQ'sHuw Beynon, echoedShishkovtsov's sentiment, saying that all the effort involved in portingMetro: 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.
