Chris Faylor, the Community Manager for developer Gearbox has stated categorically that Aliens: Colonial Marines on Wii U is not a port. When Faylor was asked if the game was indeed a simple port of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game he replied “I hate that word. The Wii U version is not a port. Remove it from your vocabulary.”

  1. Of course it’s not a port. It’s a port with new controller features.

    This guy felt the need to add that extra comment so that Nintendo wouldn’t start complaining about how they gave people no reason to buy their version of the game.

    Read the article people, it’s very clear.


    • Also: “When Faylor was asked if the game was indeed a simple port of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions” is simply not true. Faylor was not asked anything but felt the need to step in and stop his co-worker from calling the title a port.


  2. The lghting is pretty good, so I hope they do more with the Wii U version. Plus, they did say they were doing some “amazing” stuff with the Wii U version, so I want to see even more now.


  3. I spoke to Gearbox at PAX after the demo showing and asked them about the Wii U build. The developer said it will be best looking console ver and the controller does some pretty amazing things too. That’s all I could pry them for though


  4. The wording makes it sound like it is going to be a port but that Chris Faylor doesn’t want to use that word. I’m just going to wait and see. It looks like a cool game but I still don’t know yet


  5. So the Wii U version will be the definitive version? It should at least stand side by side with the PC version. At least I hope so.

    Leave luck to heaven.


    • That’s right… the definitive version of Aliens: Colonial Marines is a Wii U exclusive. I’m already screaming like Chris Tucker (Friday) over that soon to be released game!!!!!
