Rumour: GTA on Wii
Rampant speculation about the potential future of the GTA series on Nintendo Wii has been fired up online over the last 24 hours, seemingly coming from some serious 'reading into' of a fairly innocuous comment yesterday from Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime, who simply told MTV News that: "I'll be spending some time later today with the folks over at Take-Two to see what type of support they can give our console."

Although to be fair, Reggie did fan the flames of the Interweb rumour-mill by also adding, "The fact is, there will be M-rated content on the Wii console...EA has already announced that they're bringing The Godfather to our console. And we want every single best-selling game to be available on Wii. Whatever that content is."

However, it would be weird to hear that Fils-Aime was not in talks with Take-Two, as it is common knowledge that Nintendo is aggressively pursuing third parties to provide a wide variety of family and adult content for Wii.

SPOnG will be heading out to Rockstar in London come the end of this paragraph, so we will be sure to quiz them a little more about these and the many other randomly unsubstantiated Internet rumours regarding the future of the Grand Theft Auto series. We also heard, from someone in our local hairdressers, that the company might be giving away free 'pretend GTA4 tattoos', just like Microsoft's Mr Moore was sporting at E3, with the 360 version of that game. So that must also be true.

I'd welcome GTA on Wii but I'm sure once the press get hold of it that alone would kick up a storm to help sell it.

More than GTA though I'd like to see CCE (aka Bully) on Wii. This looks more interesting and is about something everyone can relate to, being at school. This has more in tune with Nintendo's games for everyone jibe.

GTA on Wii would be a sweet change to the Wii catalogue.e

Come on TT, spread the love.

Wii needs M rated mature titles to be profitable... there is no question about that. Gamecube failure was in due parlty cause by not having enough games for serious gamers. PLUS ONLINE ONLINE AND ONLINE PLAY IS A MUST.

GAMES LIKE COD3, MP3 and other serious Mature gaming franchise will have to be online for Wii...anything less will make it a failure since they are already behind the 8 ball on graphics.

It's obvious he's going to talk to them about Table Tennis. I don't know why the immediate jump is to think "GTA" or even "Bully".

There's only one title in the Rockstar library that fits the Wii and that's Table Tennis.

I agree the Table Tennis game would work well on Wii, but Nintendo should also be looking elsewhere. Games like GTA shift consoles and indeed the lack of such on GC blew its legs off before it got running. Once GTA hit Xbox, it was all over.

I think that's a bit of an overstatement. The console war was already settled by the time GTA arrived on Xbox.
