Says 'the Wii is a toy instead of a console'...
Beamdog founder and former BioWare man, Trent Oster, says Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition will not be coming to Wii U... explains why.
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is a remake of the PC RPG Baldur's Gate, which was developed by BioWare, and it's coming to PC, Mac OS and iPad.
The port is being handled Overhaul Games, a division of Beamdog, company that includes many BioWare's ex-employees.
Well, looks like Beamdog's Boss, Trent Oster, is a 'bit' mad with Nintendo, as he says the game won't be coming to Wii U, as his first experience working with Nintendo ensured they won't work together again.
According to him, “The Wii is a toy, not a console."
Last year, Beamdog released a port of the BioWare action game MDK2 for WiiWare. Looks like it didn't do very well. It isn’t known if it had passed the 6,000 milestone... probably not and that's why he now slams Nintendo like this!
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is releasing this summer on the mentioned platforms above.
