'We couldn't think of a unique feature,' says Pitchford.

Borderlands isn’t on Wii U because the developers couldn’t think of an “OMG” feature that would offer Wii U players a unique experience, according to Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford.

“We get asked if there is going to be a Wii U version of Borderlands, and the reason why there’s not is because we couldn’t think of a natural, obvious, ‘OMG, I want that for what the Wii U brings to the table’ feature,” he told the latest issue of GamesMaster magazine.

Gearbox, however, is bringing its February 2013-due Aliens: Colonial Marines to Wii U. So what differentiates Aliens from Borderlands?

“But with Aliens, the first thing we thought was ‘Holy sh*t, I can have a motion controller in my hands! When it’s there in my lap it feels like I’m part of the movie.”
