Giants Software‘s Marc Schwegler told NowGamer he thinks that sales for Nintendo’s latest console, the Wii U, may eventually surpass the sales for its predecessor, the Wii, which is steadily nearing 100 million units sold. Schwegler says the Wii U has a lot of untapped potential and that it will become more popular when developers take full advantage of its primary controller, the Wii U GamePad. In its first couple months of being on the market, Nintendo sold over three million Wii U consoles. Do you think it’s possible for the Wii U to outsell the Wii?
“I think it should do as well as the Wii, maybe even better.
“It’s difficult to say, it’s really depending on what games they will add that really use the extra device you get with it.
“There’s a lot of potential that’s not tapped yet, if it is and if it will be then I think it could be more popular than the Wii because it’s something more.
“Wii motion was okay, everybody copied it but it’s done, people are returning to regular controllers because it’s easier to play and you have much more options.
“A touch device, you could put a whole set of controls on there.”
