Gearbox's Randy Pitchford has spoken out regarding the Wii U's unique capabilities, saying that Nintendo's new console has provided the development team "a lot of cool opportunities", with the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines apparently shaping up to be "a very unique and compelling experience"
"The Wii U version has so much more to offer ... no other platform can do what the Wii U can do," said Pitchford, chatting to Vox Games. "If you love [Xbox] 360 games, you are not used to being in a world where you have this new interface. But once you get used to that, you imagine the possibilities; there are some opportunities that are just not possible on any platform that does not have that device."
The Gearbox head honcho also mused that he didn't think it would be too long before Nintendo "open up their kimono a little bit more, to reveal some more facts about the relatively enigmatic next-gen console.
"I don’t want to give spoilers away on some of things we are thinking of or things we have actually implemented already," he said, "but a lot of cool opportunities with that device that are going to make a very unique and compelling experience on that platform. We have given a lot of attention. I think it will not be too long [before] Nintendo opens up their kimono a little bit more about that platform and where it is going, we will be there right with them talking about how Aliens is using it."
