Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has honored the ‘fantastic launches’ of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Speaking during the VGX award show yesterday, Fils-Aime acknowledged that new hardware is what drives the video game industry, regardless of the manufacturer. The executive went on to say that although the newly released consoles from rivals boast powerful hardware, they need great games in order to survive in the long run.
“This industry loves brand new hardware and anything that’s good for the industry is good for Nintendo, so you know, they’re having a fantastic launch, kudos to them,” Fils-Aime said.
“What people recognize is that having pretty hardware is one thing, but you need games, and right now we’ve got some of the top rated games on our system, and it’s games that you can’t play anywhere else, so yeah, we’re feeling very good about where we are.”
