During a recent interview, 2K Games president Christoph Hartmann was asked to share his thoughts about Nintendo’s upcoming console. Hartmann thinks that because Nintendo is such impressive company and has many years of experience, the Wii U will do very well. Hartmann claims that consumers will eventually understand what the Wii U is about and “see the beauty of the console.”
What are your feelings about Nintendo’s new hardware?
“In general, we at 2K are always going to be positive about new hardware out there, but we are also cautious about things we aren’t experienced with. We don’t want to flood the market; we’d rather pick our opportunity and work well on our projects. About the Wii U itself, Nintendo is such an impressive company, they have over and over again put handheld and consoles out that are impressive. They have so much experience that I am sure they are going to do it again. With any new console, especially where something original is added, it will take time for consumers to understand it and see the beauty of it. I know that they have such clever people at Nintendo that people will see the beauty of the console, though it may take some time.”
