if gta 4 is released on the wii, do you think it will be recieved well by nintendo owners and sell well enough? take-two did say they cannot ignore the wii any longer, so if there's a game they should release on wii, it should be gta 4, but rather than have realistic graphics, they should make one with cell-shaded graphics and probably anime style since wii is popular among japanese.

First of all the reason for cell shaded is mostly because it's easier for the hardware to handle

Secondly, GTA4 is too technically advanced for the Wii to run even if you were to dumb it down.

The Wii should get a "stories" version of it's own

I'd much prefer a Grand Theft Auto game built specifically for the Wii, rather than a dumbed-down port of GTA 4.

Exactly. How about a Grand Theft Auto set in Tokyo or Puerto Rico. Cell Shaded graphics is of course the way to go. First because it's stylized, second so it doesn't get compared to the last gen GTA's, and third because the Wii hardware is good at cell shading. I remember reading in a dev interview that cell shading on the Wii is basically "free" (i.e. it takes very minimal power for the Wii hardware to do cell shading).

i know the wii has the weakest hardware among the 3 current-gen consoles, but i'm sure it can handle gta 4, only that rockstar have to use cell-shading and cartoon-style graphics. if the ps2 can handle a city as big as san andreas, then the wii should be able to handle liberty city which is not as big as san andreas. i'd love to see anime-style graphics for a change if there's a wii version.

i mentioned that rockstar should do cell-shading and anime or cartoon-style graphics for a wii port of gta 4. that should be less taxing to the wii. plus, aiming for realistic graphics is just pointless on the wii, as it is clearly the weakest powerful current-gen console, so they should do cartoon-ish graphics for the wii version for a change. also, don't include euphoria for the wii version.

Cell Shaded GTA? I like the sound of that.

Yep, Developers really just make the PS3/360 version first then they dum down the graphics give us half the content and slap on some motion controls.
#9 Posted by DaLegendKilla92 (919 posts) -

I wouldn't want GTA4, but an alternate sidestory or whole other city would be good. As long as they keep what GTA4 took out, and keep the graphics polished, it would be great. I recently heard that the PS2 ran games at like 65,000 polygons a second on their characters, while the Wii can do 500,000 polygons. So, everything should look much better than San Andreas if there was a Wii version.

I actually think that a Wii GTA isn't far off from happening. By 2010, we should hear something fromTake2/Rockstar themselves about it.

As for how much it would sell...... 2.5 million at least.

I think that a GTA game on the Wii would be pretty cool, and cell shading would be the way to go. However, a port of GTA 4 wouldjust turn out horribly. Whenever a company need t make a dumbed down port, they always take out far mre then they actually have to. Nope, a built from the ground up GTA game is what the Wii would need.

they only needed to cut 1 island and reduce the visuals to bring liberty city to the DS. the wii can handle if they use a dual-layer DVD.

but i have to agree i'd rather see something like chinatown wars (a whole new GTA) for wii than a port of GA IV. not that i like GTA >_> i'd rather get ninja gaiden...

#14 Posted by duomaxwell81 (15 posts) -
Well i think that there should be a GTA for the Wii. I agree with a few above my comment. Make a whole new story exclusively for the Wii. I mean they could pick a random city like Philadelphia and have it cover the city and some parts of south jersey like Camden, could be very interesting! Now for the controls take 2 will have to be very clever here to make it unique.
#15 Posted by ComboTroop (197 posts) -

Look, they already made Bully and manhunt2 for the Wii, i think Rockstar and Take-two are not gonna leave the Wii alone, i think they will make the GTA:CTW on DS first then make GTA for the wii, i have Bully for the Wii and it is TEN TIMES BETTER THAN ON PS2, the graphics have been a little improved, the features doubles, you know, motion contols, use the wii-mote and nunchunk for fighting hand-to-hand, I think if they make a GTA for the wii, it will need to be from the ground-up, not a repolished or dumbed-down version and it will need to take advandge of what the Wii has to offer, you know motion-controls, wicked mini-games like in Bully, and Cel-shaded visuals, and a reasonablely large map, and loads of unlockables, I hate games that are too high in Graphics, they make me vomit, its too much for my eyes, even i am 13 and most kids love high-def graphics, im more intrested in what the game has in playablity and replay value and gameplay value!

But Cel-Shaded will give GTA a cooler, more less-violent in a way, I mean then they will not have as many lawsuits chasing them about the content of graphic displaying gore and etc. you get the picture, and the Wii is reasonablity powerful, more powerful than a PS2, but not as powerful as the Xbox360 and PS3, but the Wii's Unquineablity makes up for that LOADS! But yeah, they should go for it!

I don't want a game that full of profanity, drugs, etc on the Wii.
#17 Posted by PlasmaBeam44 (9052 posts) -

Why would you want to dumb down, remove features, and drastically reduce the graphics just so you could play GTA IV on the Wii? Why not just go and play the real thing?

And take it from me, GTA IV dumbed down with "anime" graphics wouldn't work. I can also tell that a lot of you here havn't played GTA IV because most everyone who has now hates the game for some reason.

The only PS3 and 360 port that was dumbed down that was accepted (by some critics and me), but yet somehow added on was The Force Unleashed.

No

That was a completely different build. Of course it was still as horrible as the other versions but they were completely different frameworks

#20 Posted by sirkibble2 (865 posts) -
If Nintendo wanted to make more money, they should make some sort of Wii continuation of GTA 4. The same characters, the same world but sort of an expansion for the Wii console since most Wii owners probably have a 360, a PS3 or both and those who are fans of the GTA series who do not have one, and the game was real good, they would probably pick up a Wii just for the game. The killer-apps are what sell consoles.
#22 Posted by Jaysonguy (37630 posts) -

False

They cause a slight blip on the sales radar but then the sales go back to their regular trends.

There is no such thing as a system selling game.

I don't want GTAIV on wii as it would just be a lazy port but I would love a brand new exclusive GTA wii game :D
#24 Posted by BrooklynHotBoy (818 posts) -

then you might wanna sell your wii because theres already games that deal with drugs and profanity

#25 Posted by BrooklynHotBoy (818 posts) -
A gta game on the wii wouldn't work out. games with mature content aren't really flying off the shelves for the wii therefore not giving delevopers and incentive to go in that direction.

stop it with these stupid gta IV for the wii forms because IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!

I agree. I don't care much for GTA. Ninja Gaiden pwns it IMO.

You don't have to buy it. And has been already stated, such games already exist on the Wii.

The Wii should get a "stories" version of it's own

If the PS2 can handle San Andreas, then the Wii should have no problem with a low resolution GTA4

The Wii can handle low res versions of Bioshock, COD4, and RE5 (Dumb third parties)

What the?

Let me get this straight, you're saying that because the PS2 ran last gen's GTA then the Wii can run this gen's GTA?

No, I'm sorry, it doesn't work like that. The Wii does not have the horsepower to run GTA4 no matter how much you dumb it down. Plus that other list? Yeah, all that is wrong
