Wii U slammed by Metro dev

Nintendo's Wii U's CPU  has been criticised by the chief technical officer on Metro: Last Light for being 'horrible and slow'

 

The Wii U has been out for less than a week and already it's coming under fire from all quarters. First, there have been reports that the the device was hacked on its first day of release by a consumer. Then, some gamers have complained the console 'bricks' if its interrupted during an installation, rendering it useless. Now a developer has waded in with some criticism.

The chief technical officer on THQ's forthcoming horror FPS, Oles Shishkovtsov, has told Nowgamer that he thinks a port for Nintendo's console would be very difficult due to fact that the "Wii U has a horrible, slow CPU".

THQ's head of global communication, Huw Beynon, echoed Shishkovtsov's sentiments, saying: ""We had an early look at it, [and] we thought we could probably do it, but in terms of the impact we would make on the overall quality of the game - potentially to its detriment - we just figured it wasn't worth pursuing at this time."

"It's something we might return to. I really couldn't make any promises, though," he added.
