Sony Computer Entertainment America President and CEO Jack Tretton says he wishes Nintendo a lot of success with Wii U. Tretton says whatever drives attention to the video game industry is a positive thing for Sony. Tretton also acknowledges that Nintendo has a great heritage in the video game business.
Nintendo’s new Wii U console launches tomorrow in North America and November 30th in Europe.
Rising tide lifts all boats. Any time there is attention to the industry, any time there is attention to gaming it’s a good thing for us.
It takes a village of creativity to ultimately push technological boundaries. I think Nintendo has a great heritage in the business, they certainly surprised a lot of people with the success of the Wii. They’ve got great heritage in their first party development, and I’m interested to see what happens with it. But I think anything that draws attention to gaming is good for companies like us that live and die in this business, so I wish them a lot of success.
