Nintendo’s senior managing director Shigeru Miyamoto is confident that the Wii U has a long future ahead of it. Miyamoto was asked by The New York Times if he had been disappointed by the sluggish sales that the console is currently experiencing. Miyamoto says in the short-term he is slightly concerned, but in the long-term he thinks that the console still has a bright future ahead.
“I think that the Wii U still has a long future. We really view it as being the ideal device that families are going to want to have connected to that screen in the living room that everyone is going to gather around and watch. Certainly in the short term I would want to see it performing with probably a little more momentum. I think in the long term I’m not at a point where I’m concerned yet.”
