Reggie Fils-Aime is NOT IMPRESSED
How do you feel about the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launch lineups? I’m not exactly digging what Microsoft’s shoveling, but I’m happy enough with the PS4’s slated games (Hohokum!). Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is less impressed. In an interview with IGN, Fils-Aime didn’t pull any punches.
It’s all about the games. The competitive systems have announced their launch lineups. I’m allowed to say ‘Meh.’ I look at our lineup of titles and I feel good about our lineup. We’ve got Zelda. We’ve got Mario. We’ve got Donkey Kong. In addition to great titles like Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, I feel very good about our lineup, and I feel very good about the value proposition we’re putting out there for the consumer.
The Wii U does look like it’s at its most valuable, what with the recent price drop and Wind Waker HD bundle, along with finally having a few more exclusive titles to play like the aforementioned Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101. It also doesn’t take a Re-genius to figure out the console has suffered from a dearth of releases and poor sales.
Does the Wii U sing its sweet song to you more than the PS4 and Xbox One launch lineups?
