According to Sony UK boss Fergal Gara, Sony respects Nintendo as a competitor and will watch what it is doing with Wii U very closely. Gara admits Wii U is an intriguing device but says he doesn’t exactly know how successful the new console will be.
“We respect Nintendo as a highly successful competitor. Of course we will watch what they’re doing with interest. It’s [Wii U is] a very interesting product they’re bringing to market. I don’t have a clear view on how successful it will be. And to a large extent it doesn’t matter what I think. It matters what the great British public think. So we will see.”
