THQ Teasing Innovative Wii Title for Gamescom

Posted by James Newton

Make that "very, very innovative"

Ian Curran, THQ's Global Publishing Executive Vice President, is a fan of the 3DS: this we know from his previous discussion about its anti-piracy measures. The company is supporting the machine with plenty of content, from de Blob to Saints Row 3D, but it's not leaving the current consoles behind. Far from it, with Mr Curran teasing a big title on the way for Wii later this year in an interview with website CVG.

There's something else that we're going to reveal later on in the year that wasn't at E3 as well, which is just very, very innovative. There's very few people who know about it at the moment. It's not another Kinect thing - it's to do with the Wii. People are talking about Kinect and Move at the moment, understandably - but if we'd have had this at E3, people would have been talking about this as a significant step forward for the Wii as well. Maybe Gamescom for that one...

Although there's no hint of what this mystery title may be, with Gamescom just under a month away it may not be long until we discover whether it's a major leap for the machine.

Well they sure talk like it's big news. It's hard to imagine THQ as a true driving force of innovation though.

By THQ's standards, anything that isn't a licensed game or a complete ripoff of another game series qualifies as "innovative".

So basically the news is: THQ is making a game, and they think it's good. I just don't understand "teasers" like this. Waste of time. Come back when you've got some substance to back that claim, THQ.

Every publisher thinks their games are innovative. About as exciting as a parent teasing that their kid drew a picture and it's very, very good.

I don't even know how to reply to this news... THQ hasn't been the best publisher we've ever seen.

maybe its a game where you can measure your weight and... oh thats done...
or theyre making a game where you can create games that last a few... wait that ones done too...
what about a game where you create a family and... no, that one is done...
i know! a game where you are this thing that has to eat these little pellets in a labyrinth, but you need to watch out for the ghosts that haunt the place, oh i am a genius!

I really like the first two Saints Row games so I can't wait for the 3DS game. I'd also like to see the series make its way to Wii.
