Either this Rndy Pitchford is lying like chit, or the way he decides on what console to bring a game to is insane.
The decision on game porting should always be this formula, is development, resources, cost less then potential profit, future good will.
The correct way he should have answered, was "while we here at Gearbox are excited and interested at all the Wii U brings to the table, we are too far into development of amazing new IP's and continued content development for existing games and just simply do not have a workable timetable to accomplish all that we would like." In other words lie like a politician would.
If they at Gearbox actually do make decisions on how they port games on the ramblings above, i feel sorry for them.
@jenovaschilld Doesn't matter how you put it... it's all bullshit lies... Be nice if one of them just said... it can't be shown to be profitable enough
@Meatbrawl @jenovaschilld But there in lies the the rub, at the end of the day you still have to work with these tools. You cannot be a fanboy and still publish games. While the truth is always best, later down the road, you may have to do business with them and most probably will. Now a lie like, "I have not seen any slave trading going on" is different from - "Noo, that dress does not make your ass look fat".
