    Can the Wii U run PCARS?

    Edit: This was originally the project cars sales thread, but as we're more than 10 pages further with off topic discussions about the Wii U i have decided to just rename the thread.
    Apparently it seems the Wii U is not up to the task of running PCARS without downgrading the game a lot. PCARS was originally mentioned to be released for the Wii U, so this is the thread where people can talk about whether or not it is a good decision to cancel it, and see what Nintendo is bringing out as their next console, or if you would have preferred a downgraded version of the game on the Wii U after all.

    Cheers!

    Videogame sales are a bit hard to track globally, as the only site trying to publish numbers independently is Vgchartz and they don't take into account digital sales. So it would be nice if SMS could share the figures with us regularly so we have an idea of the success of Project Cars, and how big the userbase on each platform is growing?

    Or am i being cheeky for asking?
    I can't give specifics, but I'll say just this.

    We sold multiple millions of copies of Shift 2 while VGCharts were showing 180k sales. Ignore it is my advice.

    I wonder where they get their numbers from then

    Any chance of figures being published in the future? Quite curious to know how big the franchise will become over time, and if it can compete with first party developers like PD or T10.

    I'm not sure, but I could do better with toothpicks and a basket.

    I'm so hoping this game and the team really do well, I've got a lot of time for this team and not just because they're UK based although it is nice to see a home team on the podium, but also because of guys them selves, they come on here they join in with the community I for one wish them all the best.

    I'm really not exaggerating, I think they're guessing. They were 1200% out on our Shift 2 sales.

    This was 4 weeks in I hasten to add. It could have gotten worse. I don't know, I stopped checking their site at that point.
