Sony: ‘Wii is a shadow of its former self.’

I wish I could argue with that statement. Wii U is really struggling.  And its mainly Nintendo’s fault.

Looking to the future, Gara said: “I’d like it to continue with the innovation stream I just talked about, but also what we want to see in the next year or two is a bigger mass market play, shall we say. So in order to broaden and perhaps fill the void that’s being left latent by, say, the Wii – which is a shadow of its former self.

“We need to have the kind of product that will engage that more casual consumer. I think that’s a big opportunity for us, and that’s not yet clear on the horizon, but something we should and I’m sure will be focused on as we look forward into year two, three and four.”

  1. Wii U struggling because of simple fuck ups, at least it doesn’t brick itself and gets a fantastic library down the line as always thanks to Nintendo and some daring developers. They had issue with HD development which really there a spanner in the works, but they clearly got a hold of it now and are rolling out smash hit after smash hit, free online services and everything.
