Ex-Nintendo UK employee David Yarton is confident that Wii U will rightfully expand on the social gaming element that the Wii became renowned for. Yarton says that the tablet controller’s screen “can bring someone in, get them involved, but give them either a very different or subtly different experience”.
“With Wii U we are still looking at the social aspect of gaming. Wii games got the family playing, and got people that didn’t usually play up and having a go. Wii U takes that further.”
