GTA heading to Wii

One of the greatest selling franchises in video gaming history is heading straight to the Nintendo Wii. Random Newz has word from an inside source. They claim one of the employees of Rockstar (The creator of Grand Theft Auto) has told them some juicy information.

Nintendic is categorizing this as a rumor for now, but the site seems to be confident with their source.

This is straight from a dev source within Rockstar. The Wii will be getting a port of GTA from the past titles that have hit the PS2. It looks like Reggie has struck gold and Nintendo can finally shed some of that “kiddie” image from the past.

Check back for more details in the next couple of days.

It finally looks that Reggie got his wish. Maybe this news will make the Wii more appetizing to the hardcore crowd as at current time, Nintendo arguably looks too kid-friendly to some people. Everyone knows that GTA is a console seller. Whether in the past it was for Sony, or currently it’s for Microsoft; GTA makes people want to play.


This news will no doubt make its way around the internets and get people a little more excited about the Wii (Not that the Nintendo needs any help right now selling their new product). The Wii will be the only console where you can play all Nintendo first party exclusives such as Mario Party 8, Super Smash Brothers Brawl, and Grand Theft Auto all on the same system, and that’s a pretty big deal to some people who haven’t and will not buy more than one console.
