Metro: Last Light Dev Rubbishes Wii U, Says It Has Has “A Horrible, Slow CPU”

_Metro Last Light

It’s a rarity when a developer comes out in the open and totally express its disdain for a particular console, but Metro: Last Light developer 4A Games blasted Nintendo’s Wii U system yesterday, saying it has a “horribly slow CPU”.

That’s what Metro: Last Light chief technical officer, Oles Shishkovtsov told NowGamer, he said:

[The] Wii U has a horrible, slow CPU.

We had an early look at it, we thought we could probably do it, but in terms of the impact we would make on the overall quality of the game – potentially to its detriment – we just figured it wasn’t worth pursuing at this time. It’s something we might return to. I really couldn’t make any promises, though.

Should he apologize to Nintendo? It’s never good to use such fighting words against a potential business partner’s product. Share your thoughts.

    One normal person’s opinion versus another normal person’s opinion. That seems about right.
