Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has admitted that the Wii wasn’t too big a hit with the ‘hardcore’ gamers out there, but the company is looking to rectify that with its new console, the Wii U. Iwata seems to be under the impression that the reason ‘hardcore’ gamers abandoned the Wii was due to the consoles unique motion controller, and the lack of HD visuals. What do you think?
“Wii was not accepted by core gamers because they did not want to abandon their preferred control approach.”
“Additionally, Wii did not use HD because HD cost performance at the time was low.”
“Wii U makes it easier to use conventional controls. Also, the Wii U controller is not as big or heavy as it looks.”
