THE BUZZ: Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has revealed that the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines will be the definitive version, thanks to the consoles new controller.

“The Wii U version has so much more to offer… no other platform can do what the Wii U can do,” he told Vox Games. “If you love [Xbox] 360 games, you are not used to being in a world where you have this new interface. But once you get used to that, you imagine the possibilities. There are some opportunities that are just not possible on any platform that does not have that device.”

He also confirmed that the Wii U version will include a number of unique features.

“I don’t want to give spoilers away on some of the things we are thinking of or things we have actually implemented already, but there are a lot of cool opportunities with that device that are going to make a very unique and compelling experience on that platform.”

“We have given it a lot of attention. I think it will not be too long [before] Nintendo opens up their kimono a little bit more about that platform and where it is going, and we will be there right with them talking about how Aliens is using it.”

EGM’s TAKE: We’re quite surprised at the enthusiasm of many developers towards the Wii U. When the Wii released a lot of top developers weren’t all that interested. Could the Wii U finally signal Nintendo’s charge on Microsoft and Sony? If these unique features are actually worthwhile then it just might. Then again, too much excitement over an unreleased product can lead to disappointment. What we really need to see is actual footage of these Wii U titles running.
