      On the Call Of Duty Ghosts wiiu facebook page they posted the new dlc maps that are heading to other systems but will wiiu be getting this (might this be a sign?) or do u think it was just an informational thing?

            has anyone ever thought about.... our version is a port. which also means anything and everything that goes into our game (save maybe motion control issues) is also ported material. porting these things..maps, skins, weapons, you name it..is consuming resources of time, people, and money that may not pay off for whoever in the end. doesnt matter who it would benefit anyway. in the business world money is as important as anything, if not more. unless our communitys numbers start increasing, we very well may never get these things, free to us or not.

             

            heres a thought..if only dlc could be achieved in a kickstarter-esque style or format..

                According to the devs it's not a "port".  Each system has a team that writes the code for that system.  They optimize the code for that system and it's made to run on that system.  So I see what he means by it's not a port.  But yeah, it would consume time and resources regardless. 

                 

                And I like that kickstarter Idea.  At the same time though...our small player base.  There's still a problem of DLC dividing the community up even more because not everyone will buy it.  It's not coming until the game sells more copies.

                  Ok, but dont the player base increase if we get promised to get full support, that what activision is doing is just not doing something in the first place. Also putting up DLC and micro does put almost any money or effort whatsoever, i have a couple of people who work with this stuff. also it isnt hard to put dlc onto the eshop!

                      Yes, there is no excuses why we can't get anything that is given away for free (Nintendo says the Wii U can use micro content)... They are pretty much telling us to sit down and deal with it. When Activision was talking about releasing 5 games this holiday including Ghost to the struggiling Wii U, they said "we want to help out Nintendo..." Yeah, not giving us content to keep us occupied and helping the console sell with one of the best FPS's in history is helping isn't it? No, though we are happy to be able to play it on are Nintendo consoles, we are not happy with the way you treat us as non equal to the other consoles and even not treating it like a next-generation console. Don't be doing the same thing EA did.

                    We won't be getting it. There's not enough money to get from a very small Wii U Ghosts community of gamers. Why would Treyarch bother getting us DLCs?

                      OMG people will just never grasp the fact that it is a numbers issue and nothing more. if money had a thing to do with it wii u wouldnt even receive the game in the first place. we wont get this add on content because then people will expect more.

                          I am sorry Bobby, but it is just not that simple, or else we would have had DLC during the Wii days when we had a relatively high user base.  COD: WAW, MWR and BO1 all sold 1-million plus copies, meaning that if it were a numbers thing, as you claim, then it would not have applied to these titles just a few years ago.  My theory, BO1 had a COD store ready to go for the Wii version of the game, with the manual reading that we would be able to download add-on content, such as maps, etc.  This was set to be enabled in a patch that was released early on (it was in the patch files), so before anyone tries to make the age-old argument that it was due to "a lack of system memory", SD cards, which is, yes a form of expandable memory, were set to be the answer to the lack of a hard drive for the system.  My guess is, Nintendo didn't like the idea of us the users downloading directly from a "COD store", and instead, wanted us to download map packs through their own downloadable store.  It was either this, or Nintendo and Activision could not come to terms on what the shares for each entity would be in regards to the split of the money we as consumers would have spent.  So, while it may not make sense to release DLC to a user base of roughly 50,000 at the moment for Ghosts, it most certainly would have made sense when they were making a pretty profit with a consistent string of 1-million copies sold for previous COD's on Nintendo platforms.

                              We had a decent population, but getting DLC to work on the Wii was hell, not to mention that most people would've pirated it anyways....

                                  another fact people often forget. regardless whether or not it could have been brought to wii, which hardware-wise would have been difficult/impossible, why would they ever bother on a system that was hacked to sh!t???

                                      Have you read anything I have posted?  It had nothing to do with hardware! Period.  We received the games didn't we?  There was a COD store ready to go for COD Black Ops wasn't there? The answer to these questions are yes and yes, meaning that hardware was not the issue here man.  It was something else, and obviously due to the fact that the Wii U community does not even get the free stuff (Microtransactons, "Free Fall"), there is something else going on here.

                                          Yeah AND THEY ARE COMMITTING A FALSE ADVERTISEMENT CRIME AGAIN (Look on the back of both Black Ops 2 and Ghost boxes)!!! (Sorry, I had to make the previous sentence look dramatic) (from what I heard in Black Ops 2) Activision got sued for that before and they probably think they can do it again. Not cool Activision... not cool...

                                            A label on a menu is hardly indicative of "hardware capable".

                                                And neither is DLC!  It is content that you download, which means it has nothing to do with the power of the hardware itself.  The hidden COD Store menu option in the early patch should be enough proof for anyone that a DLC distribution system was ready to go. That, and the statement in the manual that said you would need an SD card for storage.

                                                    It's far more complicated than that, and yes, hardware plays a factor.  I'm not going to explain it to you though.  You can put the effort into figuring it out yourself, or you can just continue to believe what you believe.

                                          This official FAQ page should be proof enough that we won't get it.
