SlashGear’s Don Reisinger believes that the biggest news to come out of Nintendo’s E3 performance was that the Wii U is in deep trouble. He claims that Nintendo’s new console is hardly a technological advancement. Reisinger says Wii U’s “graphics shown off in the trailers were by no means impressive.” He thinks that Wii U will be an initial success but will not be able to keep up with other devices from competitors in the long-run.
“While watching Microsoft’s E3 keynote, I couldn’t help but think of Nintendo and the fact that the game company showed its hand too early by unveiling the Wii U last year. It gave Microsoft (and Sony) time to set their own plans. And in the process, it might have scuttled any chance for the Wii U to succeed over the long-term.”
