Relic Talks Wii and Dawn of War 360?
Relic talked for the 1st time about the Wii and rather or not they would be supporting them or not. They seem to although be one of the few companies that it's just not the same route they seem to want to go down: “We make more mature-rated games, and more high-end graphical games, and the Wii is going in a little bit of a different direction; they’re not going to play the same game as the 360 and the PS3. You never know - if we came up with something cool we could do it, but right now our plan is not to… You can’t do the same types of games on the Wii because the power is a lot different. It’s a different type of technology. I think it was really smart for Nintendo to break out on their own and do their own thing. The platform’s going to be really successful.” Well ya can't please everyone but who says that Wii won't support M rated games. All ya have to do is put them up there and hey M rated games haha. And so far I don't think they have Wii dev kits so they really have no idea what the Wii can really produce so a lot of preemptive judgements. I think if they see Wii takeoff at launch they'll jump right in on the fun and look to make something new or port the same game over. But I do agree with them that the Wii going different will make it extremely sucessful. As for the Dawn of War they speak about maybe a console version of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War. About that they had this to say: "We're keeping a close eye on it. We've done a lot of work to see how we would do it, and we same to the same conclusion as I think the Lord of the Rings guys did; we're watching Lord of the Rings going to 360 very closely. If it's successful, I think there's a good chance we could bring Company of Heroes and even Dawn of War over." So seems like a possibility of it coming over. As far as I know the 360 version of LOTR: BFME 2 is doing ok but not great. I mean nowhere near the same sucess that the PC version got. Although the controls did work just didn't seem like RTS are big for console gamers. Anyways still a possiblity and let's hope it does go to the 360 or even the PS3. Source Zucas
