Aliens: Colonial Marines on the Wii-U has been delayed

57 second read


You hear that? It’s the feint cries of happiness of all the Nintendo Wii-U owners waking up to find out that the seriously sub-standard Aliens: Colonial Marines will not be landing on their device in the near future.

Geoff reviewed the game on Xbox 360 back in February and gave it an incredibly disappointing 4.9 which aligns pretty perfectly with it’s current Metacritic score of

[metacritic mclink=”xbox-360/aliens-colonial-marines”]

The PC and PS3 version fared no better and with the recent ruling by the Advertising Standards Agency in the UK stating that Sega misled the public with the demo video released it doesn’t look like anyone is going to forget this saga anytime soon.

You know what is massively disappointing though? It sold a bucket load of units and will likely still net Sega and Gearbox a tidy profit. But my guess now is that Sega doesn’t want any more negative publicity and that is why we won’t see the title hit Nintendo’s machine at all.

    KILL IT WITH FIRE! For once, a good time to be a wii-U owner… trololol! Nah, kidding. Good call to not release this piece of shit on another platform. Three worlds of hate should be enough…

    I don’t see why they even bother, do they really think that people will still buy this after the PC version’s disaster?

    I would say that Wii U owners should cry with happiness but there aren’t any Wii U owners are there?

      There’s me. 🙁
      Funnily enough, I actually had the Wii U version pre-ordered; then got the review copy..played that, and quite promptly cancelled my order. 😛

    Does any one know how well it sold? And was that mostly pre-orders?
