Gearbox Software "enthusiastically supporting" Nintendo Wii

Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford has confirmed that the studio is "enthusiastically supporting" the Nintendo Wii - despite some concerns over the console's power.

Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford has confirmed that the studio is "enthusiastically supporting" the Nintendo Wii - despite some concerns over the console's power.

"The strengths of the Nintendo Wii include the price, the unique interface, the sure-bet library of games based on the great Nintendo properties and the promise back catalogue of classic games from Nintendo and others that they have partnered with," he told IGN.

Although Pitchford is slightly concerned about the system's relative lack of power compared to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, for which his company is already developing, that hasn't dampened his enthusiasm for the format.

Gearbox has no announcements to make at the moment, he added, but he pointedly chose not to rule it out.

Gearbox Software is currently developing Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway - the third game in its acclaimed World War II tactical shooter series - for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
