Who in their right mind would buy Aliens Colonial Marines for the Wii U now?

Big fat reddit post about the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines game from a purported Sega tester:

Oh wow. Yes okay. I was hoping someone would ask this. I have played the WiiU version. The one that is supposedly the best of all of them? It is not. It is the worst. It is a bit of a joke. The WiiU is basically the same game as the console version but with framerate issues, worse texture loading, and horrendously misguided minigames thrown in. You get a ‘scanner’ to scan enemies and get bonus points that aid your harming them. When you cut open doors (which happens a lot in the game) you have a game where you have to keep the heat ‘optimal’. They just add frustration, and take away even more from the fun. We don’t know if it will come out, Sega are conisdering canceling it, but right now its still going.”

Who knows if this post is real or not, but given the less than stellar reviews this game has been getting, add this into the mix, and the question has to be, is ANYONE going to buy it on the Wii U? Sega should cut their losses and cancel it.
