id - John Carmack makes the calls on Wii U support, no version of Rage for Wii

GN Version 4.0
"I haven't really had a chance to sit down with [John] Carmack about it (Wii U), because it's his opinion that matters. From what Nintendo is saying, [the Wii U] looks interesting, but it still remains to be seen how it fits within how id Tech 5 would run on it, is the audience right for us to develop games on that platform." - id Software, and studio president Todd Hollenshead

It's clear where the creativity rests in id, and no platform support decisions are going to be made without consulting Carmack. Fair enough...but what about some Wii love with Rage?

"For Rage, as much as Nintendo might not like to hear this, id Tech 5 is too much tech for the Wii. We're not doing a crappy version of Rage on the Wii. If you play the PC, the PS3, the 360 version, you get all of it. All the media's the same. We didn't make the crippled version that somebody wishes they had some other platform to play on."
