Some bad news was recently release surrounding Nintendo as it was announced that Activision would not be releasing ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ on the Wii U.

The news that Activision would not be releasing a Wii U version for ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ came right on the heels of Ubisoft’s announcement for the removal of Wii U’s version of ‘Assassin’s Creed’.

The news broke on Twitter when the Co-founder of Sledgehammer Games and the developer behind COD, Michael Condrey replied to a fan inquiry about the Wii U. Condrey’s reponse was short and to the point. He stated, “… no, no WiiU. That was an Activision decision. We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC.”

As it stands, ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ and ‘Assassin’s Creed’ will be released on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC. This leaves Wii U as the odd man out.

Wii U does have some anticipated titles due for release. These titles include ‘Zelda’, ‘Super Smash Bros’, and ‘Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes’. These are on the family friendly side.

On the not so family friendly gaming side, PlayStation has a flash sale going on for this weekend only. This sale ends on Monday, August 25th, at 8 am Pacific time and all of the games are available for $9.99. You can purchase games such as ‘Darksiders II’, ‘DmC Devil May Cry’, ‘BioShock Infinite’ and more from the PlayStation Store. These games have an original price tag of $29.99 to $49.99.

You can find the full list of PS Vita and PS3 games for purchase in this flash sale on the PS blog.

Gamers also have a few days left for the PlayStation Plus deals of August. For PlayStation 4, PS Plus members can receive ‘Road Not Taken’, a puzzle game where your actions affect the flow of your storyline. Players can also receive ‘Metrico’ on PS Vita. This game also deals with puzzles and testing your mind to reach your goal.

Keeping with the theme of multi-choice games, another game to note for August is ‘Crysis 3’ for PlayStation 3. It is a shooter that takes place in New York City after the forest has reclaimed the area. You have control of how you approach the environment, and your storyline.

Other games offered include ‘Proteus’ on PS3, ‘Fez’ on PS4, and ‘Dragon’s Crown’ on PS Vita.
