Question Will The Old Republic be Available for Nintendo Wii?

The title says it all. Will it?


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

You're too well respected to seriously be asking this, so I'm not sure how to respond.

That was I was thinking...

But I will just go out on a limb and answer the question...no, definitely not going to happen (IMO).

Maybe just trying to spark some conversation in an otherwise slow section of the forums, but in stating the obvious I agree with previous posters - no way it will be on the Wii.

Lets see, despite the fact that console games, let alone the Wii can't really support a real MMO, I'm sure the poly count for a head model alone would be too much for the poor Wii. Now, imagine a 4000+ poly count full body, multiply that by more than 100.

TOR for the Wii isn't going to happen, unless Wii2 comes out and suddenly pulls out better graphics and online capabilities than the PC, PS4, or the next Xbox out of its butt before TOR comes out.

That hasn't stopped people from using nintendo characters on GMOD.

It isn't a question of whether the Wii is physically capable of running TOR, its that it won't be developed for the Wii, therefore, my original statement.

I think we lost Rogue15.

No. You'll find Rogue15 on the X-Wing Series sub-forum.

He only posted this topic as a joke after the "TOR on Mac" topic popped up. Normally he doesn't really post here, so his silence is to be expected.
