An anonymous reader writes: THQ has clarified comments made by 4A Games' chief technical officer Oles Shishkovtsov about the upcoming first-person shooter Metro. This week THQ developer house told NowGamer: “[The] Wii U has a horrible, slow CPU” by way of explaining why a Wii U version of Metro wasn't in the works. We genuinely looked at what it would take to bring the game to Wii U. It's certainly possible, and it's something we thought we'd like to do. The reality is that would mean a dedicated team, dedicated time and effort, and it would either result in a detriment to what we're trying to focus on or we probably wouldn't be able to do the Wii U version the justice.
