Braid creator hears Wii U “has a lot more RAM” than Xbox 360/PS3
Jonathan Blow, creator of the critically acclaimed indie hit Braid, is currently working on a PC game called The Witness. It won’t be coming to any of the current consoles because…
…their specifications are over five years old now, and that’s a lot in computer years. The kind of tricks we’d have to perform to get this game working on those platforms are such a lot of work that to port it over at this point is just not worth it for us.
When asked about what he wanted from the next generation of home consoles, he replied with a simple wish for more RAM (which sounds eerily close to a similar comment we heard from High Voltage Software way back in March). He wishes that generation would start sooner because he was told that the Wii U “has a lot more RAM” compared to the Xbox 360′s and PlayStation 3′s paltry 512 MB.
That doesn’t mean we’ll end up getting The Witness U, though, as Blow is concerned that the Wii U may not fare well against the iPad. Still, hearing that the Wii U is packed with RAM sounds like Nintendo have really been listening to what developers want.
