Nintendo's Wii Unable to Cope with SAW Game

By Adam Riley 30.10.2008 11

A new interview with Brash Entertainment has revealed that the Wii is not seen as powerful enough to cope with next year's SAW game, which will coincide with the release of the sixth movie. Wii fans will have to do without the game, since apparently on 360, PS3 and PC can handle such a game.

Below are a couple of quotes from the interview:

OMGHorror.com: What genre is the SAW game going to fall under? Is this going to be a Manhunt-esque game? Is there a game that exists that has influenced it or you can compare it to?

David Cohen, Brash Entertainment: The SAW video game is going to be a sort of hybrid than other "survival horror" games. It's not simply a survival horror game, but more of a horror-thriller, just like the films. There will be elements from the survival horror genre including exploration, mystery, and puzzles, but also loads of action and suspense. We are also introducing many gameplay elements that have not been seen in a video game to date. Our goal is to make SAW the game set a trend for a new kind of Next-Gen horror game.

OMGHorror.com: When the SAW game was first announced, an image was shown of a woman holding her hands above her head in a glass box grasping a Wii Remote. Is the game coming out for the Wii and if so how will it utilize the console's unique motion controls?

David Cohen, Brash Entertainment: I remember that image and it was hilarious, however, that image was actually created by one of the online sites that picked up the news of the game's announcement. To deliver the high quality visuals and mechanics that a Next-Gen game like this requires, the SAW video game will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms.


Do you feel that a Wii version should be made, making gruesome use of the motion controls?

Oh gee... Oh drat. Damn! I'm so bummed out that this clearly brilliant film series will not have it's probably-equally brilliant game tie-in coming to my console.

Meh. If it's another Manhunt 2 then they can keep it on the HD systems.Smilie

SAW sucked after the 2nd film, and in my opinion a game shouldn't exist at all.

Well if people want sucky games so bad, there are plenty of other movie tie ins already on the Wii to choose from...

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

Probably for the greater good, saves us from the inevitable Daily Mail article telling us how evil the Wii is becoming and how it will poison our minds leading us to kill and maim in later life.Smilie

Aww no. What a shame.

In a more serious note I can already see hundreds of hardcore PS360 gamers cursing at how lucky the Wii is for being able to avoid this title.

Then it seems perfect for all those kiddies who got a Wii for their birthday/christmas/whatever, no?

Do they HAVE to keep calling 360/PS3 'next-gen' to differentiate from Wii?

It's all CURRENT GEN now. ALL THREE of them.

I'd be extremely suprised if this didnt come to the Wii.

Considering all the fans of the films seem to be complete mindless drones. The Wii is the perfect console for a game like this and it would sell by the bucketload.

Love the Sarcasm.

It's very annoying, I mean, I hate dev's like these that only care about da grafix.

But the it's not a big loss, since movie tie ins are at most average these days, I think that this wont be any different.
