    :cry: As the tittle says. When CivR was announced I found myself wondering and actually looking forward to buying it and playing on my Wii... but then it gets dropped. :confused: Why is it? Worse graphics? Then how come the DS version is still on?

    Bah, let me know if it ever is a version for Wii...

    For the the rest of players that are going to be able to play because their system is getting a version. Good gaming, just remember me when you get to discover the tech Consoles... :lol:

    At least I have BTS on my PC.

    with the wii's control, civ could really work on it. i agree it is a daft decision.

    disclaimer: i never plan on buying revolutions, even if it does come out on wii

    wii was cancelled becasue of a lack of time and resources to make the game for all of the consoles, they may make it later they don't know yet.

    Hey, I can understand no Persia in CivRev. However, not including the Wii Nation is abominable! ;)

    I agree, they should have canceled the DS version and gone with the Wii version instead, but it's a LITTLE too late now....besides, it's not canceled, it' just been put on indefinite hold.

    Because of the Wii's Crappy hardware. The game was orginally made for the more powerful PS3, 360 hardware. Firaxis said its just not worth time, resources, and money to make a Wii version.

    As for the DS version I am sure it takes a lot less resources for the handheld version.

    Why not trade your Wii in for a PS3 or 360? its not like the wii has anything worht playing anyway.
