Carmack looking towards Wii

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Legendary games developer John Carmack speaks of his interest in developing a title for Wii.

The co-mastermind of iD software has often been very vocal in the industry, slamming the PS3 for its difficult architecture and writing off the Wii as a graphically challenged console, something which he's not used to coming from the PC world.

Reported by EuroGamer, the main man has actually changed his tune somewhat and is actively planning a project for Wii:

"Interestingly, I actually spend far more time playing Wii with my four year-old boy than I do with any other game console. So I'm definitely sympathetic to the platform," Carmack revealed to MTV's Multiplayer. "We've been pitched and talked about a project that would fit well on the Wii, and it's actually related to an iPhone title that we're doing. But that's still kind of up in the air as to what other developer we would partner with on there,"

"I'd like to do something there, because I love a lot of what Nintendo has done with the Wii and the DS, but it's just out of sync with the developments that are currently going on at id."

It's hard to know what it could be, chances are it could be related to Orcs & Elves, we'll just have to wait and see.

iD Software have never really made a bad game, they're legends in the PC market, they're also behind the recently launched Quake Live website which puts Quake in the browser for the first time.

I hope it isn't Orcs and Elves, TBH. It's a decent game but it was originally designed for mobile phones and is probably a bit limited for a Wii release. The DS version just about got away with it, but they would have to pump up the depth and overhaul the visuals if it was going to be on the Wii.
