Aliens Colonial Marines Wii U is NOT a port, Gearbox insists

Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox Software's upcoming video game based on the popular sci-fi series, is coming to Wii U, but fans of the new console shouldn't expect a direct port of the game's other console version.

Matt Power, the game's senior producer, initially called the Wii U version a port, referring to other iterations of the shooter being made for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

However, Gearbox's community manager, Chris Faylor, was quick to reject the claims, insisting that the version for Nintendo's upcoming console offers a unique experience.

“I hate that word," said Faylor. "The Wii U version is not a port. Remove it from your vocabulary.”

Powers has discussed how the game might use Wii U's tablet and its screen to offer mechanics not only unique to the version of the experience, but specific to the Alien universe.

Radar, anyway?
