    Activision is listing Transformers Prime: The Game as a WiiU software title.

    I tried to tell others about this before, but I guess directly linking to the page doesn't work. Here is how you can see this for yourself.

    1. visit http://www.activision.com
    2. Click Find Games > All Platforms > WiiU
    3. Transformers Prime: The Game is the only title listed for the WiiU console.

    So, there is confirmation that I was correct. If you look at the official Prime game website they do not list the WiiU anywhere, which is odd.

    Well, if it's any consolation to you I don't think the WiiU version will have any enhancements.

    As sad as this idea is, the game will most likely be a straight port to the WiiU. No new features, enhancements, or additions of any kind. So... you don't need to replace your Wii just for this game.

    ...I really hope I'm wrong though. Why even bother to put it on the WiiU? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    WiiU is backwards compatible with Wii games anyway. So we'll see if they actually make a separate version for WiiU. Game still looks pretty terrible, though. I'll be interested to see some version of it other than the 3DS, which I'm assuming is all we've seen so far.

    Bulkhead will definitely be the worst playable character in the game, unless they give you the option to transform the bots into their vehicle forms. I just can't see winning a game level with Bulky, considering his heaviness will slow him down and make him an easy target.

    It must be 1992 again!

    At any rate It looks pretty good, but they havn't made a Transformer game that has WOWed me since the 2007 films DS game. so we'll see.

    what's the point of the WiiU, anyway? As far as I can tell it's just a single-screened DS.

    That's the controller!! hahah It's a console system like the Wii.

    Let's see... $40 for a wiimote, $20 for a controller... so with that scale... a wireless LED controller $150?? $200?? (guessing on price) where it's your map/inventory or you can play the full game down there too... don't drop it! Or have friends so you need to get a second controller. (they're doing a non screen controller too) The WiiU is supposed to have HD graphics ALMOST as good as the Xbox 360.

    I can't wait for all the funny youtube videos, like when people throw their wiimotes into their HDTV. Now we'll get videos of people wrecking their HDTVs and their $150 controllers at the same time. It's going to be great.

    Have you seen the videos for the ZombiU game? It shows the player having to shake the controller violently and swing it around like a pickaxe. The WiiU controller is like ten thousand disasters waiting to happen. The devastation is going to be glorious.

    Pretty neat, but I'm sure it'll be just a lazy port like the TMNT Wii version was just the Gamecube game with motion controls. Those early licensed games are always like that. I'm pretty much planning to get this for my 3DS and call it a day.

    Though I cannot wait to get a Wii U, don't even plan on getting the other next gen consoles.
