'More modern tech' allows Wii U Colonial Marines to be better visually...
According to Gearbox’s Brian Burleson the Wii U version of the upcoming FPS Aliens:Colonial Marines will visually 'be better' than its Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 counterparts.
In a recent Eurogamer interview with senior producer Brian Burleson, he described the Wii U as a "powerful, powerful machine", following similar comments from the company CEO.
He insisted Gearbox has managed to get Aliens: Colonial Marines "singing" on the machine.
Apparently, Gearbox plans to have Aliens' famous motion tracker displayed on the Wii U controller, and there will be other applications, too, however he can't talk about them:"[Creating the Wii U version] has been pretty easy," he told Eurogamer. "The Wii U is a powerful, powerful machine and it can do a lot of cool new things. And so the game itself, moving it over to work on the Wii U was not much of a chore.
"Now the interesting thing is finding out all the cool ways you can use the controller to do new stuff with it. You can imagine all the cool things we can do, with this franchise and having a thing with you, right?"
Regarding's Wii U power, he said is "one thing he can't talk about", and "actually nailing the specs, they haven't come out with them yet.""You can imagine some cool features, for sure," Burleson said. "It's not hard to imagine some cool features."
However, he confirms the Wii U version of Aliens will "be better" than the PS3 and Xbox 360 version in terms of visuals.
If you didn't know Aliens: Colonial Marines was delayed a few days ago, and it will now be releasing on February 12, 2013 on both XBOX 360 and PS3, with the Wii U date yet TBA.Why? Because of "more modern tech".
What Burleson is alluding to here is the suggestion that because the Wii U contains modern components, it will by default be more powerful than the ageing PS3 and Xbox 360.
How, exactly, will it be better? "You'll have to wait and see," Burleson teased. "Just trust me on that one."
