EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich has told Edge magazine that while Nintendo has ultimately had a rough start with Wii U, he is confident that once the big hitters come out the console’s fortune should turn around. Divinich also believes that Nintendo is in the perfect position to capitalise on the second screen revolution that’s currently taking place in living rooms throughout the world.
“Nintendo always went against the grain. It’s risky for publishers to jump on revolutionary technology from day one and this puts tremendous pressure on the firstparty studios to lead the charge. With Wii U, a few key firstparty titles were delayed, and without them consumers are still on the fence about the console.”
“Nintendo has yet to release its major firstparty titles on the platform. Consumers are waiting for that killer Wii U game before making their decision on whether or not to enter the ecosystem. Right now, the battle in the living room is for the second-screen experience and Nintendo is positioned perfectly to capitalise on this trend. I think it may be fair to give Nintendo through the holiday to see if the current lineup can raise awareness and sales.”
