Wii U Logo Found On Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Website

http://www.cinemablend.com/games/wii...ite-63848.html


By William Usher 2014-05-04 17:33:42





When it was originally announced, there was no mention of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare coming to Nintendo's Wii U home console.

New information has surfaced hinting that the Wii U may not be down and out of contention for receiving Activision's annual first-person shooting outing. In fact, some believe that Activision may be waiting for E3 to make the big reveal for Nintendo's console.

Nintendo Castle picked up the story from Charlie Intel, who took on the painstaking task that no one asked them to do, and sift through the source code of the official Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare website.

As noted on the other two sites, you can see that the Wii U's logo is blatantly made obvious within the logo art available through the site. Check it out below.







Well there it is, about as clear and apparent as Donald Sterling's bÍte noire for anyone who isn't dipped in creamy vanilla.

Of course, as pointed out by both sites, even with a clear indication that the logo is present within the website source code for the game, it doesn't guarantee that the Wii U is still on the cards for Activision's latest Call of Duty title.

In fact, some gamers have commented that Advanced Warfare might skip the Wii U due to the poor sales of Call of Duty: Ghosts, as reported by Wii U Daily.

Of course, even with poor sales of Ghosts on the Wii U (which seems to show Wii U gamers have discernible tastes in what they purchase), Activision would lose more by not porting to the Wii U than what they might potentially gain by supporting the system.

That's not to mention that they could always do the quick and dirty Xbox 360 port to Wii U and call it a day like some other studios; reap the benefits of a low cost venture for a couple hundred thousand sales in return.

Some pundits have pointed to the Wii U's install base as a reason for Activision to be apprehensive about a Wii U port, but keep in mind that the lead platform of development this time around is the Xbox One, and it has a smaller install base than the Wii U. With Nintendo's system sitting at 6.1 million SKUs and the Xbox One sitting at 4.4 million, according to VG Chartz.







Basically, it means that the numbers game doesn't favor the argument for the Xbox One. Most gamers have come to accept that Microsoft fronted the money for the Xbox One to be the lead platform of development, especially following the Resolutiongate fiasco from last year. The company is also ensuring that there is timed-exclusive DLC for the Xbox brand platforms. So yeah, of course the Xbox One would be on the table.

Whether or not this move opted to push the Wii U off the table is a whole other story, or possibly Nintendo and Activision have a deal of their own to consummate through some sort of announcement come E3? I guess we'll find out when the time comes.

Advanced Warfare Platforms Revealed, DLC Is Timed Exclusive For Xbox 360 and Xbox One

Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Platforms Revealed, DLC Is Timed Exclusive For Xbox 360 And Xbox Onehttp://www.cinemablend.com/games/call-duty-advanced-warfare-platforms-revealed-dlc-timed-exclusive-xbox-360-xbox-one-63832.html


By Pete Haas 2014-05-03 08:57:36





Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare won't just be for the latest consoles. Amazon's listings for the newly announced shooter reveal that it's coming to five platforms in November.

The retailer is accepting pre-orders for the Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions. They have box art for each version as well so this isn't just an educated guess on their part.

The lack of a Wii U version for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is somewhat surprising. The last two games in the series, Black Ops 2 and Ghosts, were both released on the console. Did Activision decide that a Wii U version wasn't worth the effort?

There's a possibility that the game will be announced for Wii U at a later date. Call of Duty: Ghosts wasn't confirmed for Wii U until last July, two months after Activision unveiled the game for other platforms. Wii U owners hoping for more Call of Duty shouldn't lose hope just yet, in other words.

The Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Advanced Warfare come with an exclusive bonus: early DLC. Microsoft confirmed on Xbox Wire that DLC packs will be released on XB1 and 360 before any other platforms. Activision and Microsoft have made similar arrangements for every Call of Duty game since the first Black Ops. Typically the exclusivity period for DLC is 30 days so I'd expect that to be the same here.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, announced yesterday, depicts a future in which private military corporations have replaced many traditional armies. Kevin Spacey plays Jonathan Irons, the head of PMC Atlas Corporation. Atlas is the largest of the PMCs and Irons plans to use that power for sinister means.

The futuristic era of the game gives players access to wide range of new equipment. They wear exoskeletons that allow them to jump vast distances or climb walls. Other toys at players' disposal include energy weapons, hoverbikes and cloaks.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will launch on November 4th worldwide. Expect more details tomorrow when Activision launches the official website for the game.

The last two games showed up on the Wii U, and Acti loves to release on all the consoles. Not sure how this is surprising

They'd probably lose sales if they didn't release it on the previous gen, most people can't seem to afford to buy the new consoles due to the prices and recession. That's why I don't find it that surprising at least.
