Nintendo of Canada, Matt Ryan has confessed that there’s still a number of people who are not entirely sure if Wii U is a add-on for the Wii, or a new console. Ryan says that while Nintendo did a good job of emphasising that Wii U is a brand new home console at this years E3 event, he is still asked by people whether Wii U is an add-on for Wii.
“Admittedly, yes, out of E3 2011 we had some people that didn’t feel they understood it was a new console. Nintendo feels that after [E3] 2012, we have gotten that message across. There are a few comments that we get, asking if it’s a new console, but the majority get it.”
