Doom 3: BFG Not Coming To Wii U, Vita, iOS Because id Software Doesn't Have Time image
Doom 3: BFG won't find a home on the Wii U and other sub-platforms is not because the system isn't powerful enough or the wannabe-iPad controller is inhibitory or anything like that. The main reason why id Software won't be porting the game over to the console is because they just don't have time. Bummer.
