Cynical about the chances of Nintendo's Wii U? Worried it might not succeed, or that its weird screen thing will fail to make the Wii's lightning strike twice? Well, meaty executive Reggie Fils-Aime disagrees with you! Bet you never saw that coming. 

"The Wii U has to deliver a differentiated experience that can only be brought to bear through the use of these two screens," he said. "If all we do is a beautiful game in HD, it's been done before. We have to take advantage of the second screen, we need to take advantage of the connectivity that the system will offer.

"We believe that we will yet again disrupt the market the same way we did with DS and Wii."

The DS and Wii certainly disrupted things, with the Wii especially catching its rivals off guard at the beginning of this generation. Can Nintendo make good on the follow-through, though? And will the third parties be on board for anything other than the HD? Market disruption is all well and good, but not when it disrupts things so much that developers don't know what to do with it.
