Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that he has extremely high expectations for Wii U and believes that demand for the console will be strong. Guillemot expects Nintendo to produce 5 million Wii U consoles during the first six months of the console going on sale.
“Generally, that’s what (Nintendo) does. The number can be more, it can be less… they are always limited in the number that they can build.”
“It’s easier at the beginning of the console cycle to astonish people and bring them new experiences than at the end of the cycle. So the risk that is seen as a big risk by many is actually the contrary.”
