GTA V For Wii?

Please file the following under "RUMOR" gamers. The following is a report from the good guys over at Codenamerevolution. Here is what they had to say about the possibility of the next GTA game on Nintendo's 5th system Wii.

Rumour has it that Rockstar Games plans to developer Grand Theft Auto 5 for the Wii. SPOnG spoke to Rockstar about this posibility that the company responded with a “stifled giggle”. Was the giggle for the lack of horsepower on the Wii? Or is it that they have something planned? GTA4, which is set to release in October for other platforms is being built upon a new engine that would have to be “dumbed-down” for Wii.

Chances are we will see Grand Theft Auto on the Wii, but I have my money on a “spin-off” in the likes of past spin-offs such as Vice City and San Andreas.

My Thoughts:
I don't forsee a huge problem with Wii getting a GTA game. It's been said in the past that the NOA President Reggie Fils-Aime has been in talks with Rockstar about the possibility of bringing GTA to a Nintendo console. With the recent announcement of the controversial Manuhunt 2 headed to Wii, anything is possible.

With rising costs in game production, the easiest way for a developer to make some decent money is to have their game on every system possible. Production costs for Wii are remarkably lower than all of the Next-Gen systems, so in my opinion, I could definitely see this rumor coming true. What do you guys think, would you like to see GTA on Nintendo Wii?
