Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime isn't particularly impressed with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launch lineups.
In an interview with IGN, the Nintendo exec discussed the Wii U price cut and how he feels about the company's position going into the holiday season. "It’s all about the games. The competitive systems have announced their launch lineups. I’m allowed to say 'Meh.'"
Fils-Aime went on to add:
I look at our lineup of titles and I feel good about our lineup. We’ve got Zelda. We’ve got Mario. We’ve got Donkey Kong. In addition to great titles like Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, I feel very good about our lineup, and I feel very good about the value proposition we’re putting out there for the consumer.
We’ve got cloud technology that we’re delivering with Wii U. Nintendo TVii is all cloud-based technology. But the difference is, we don’t talk about the tech. We talk about the experience.
We make sure that the consumer has fun with the game experiences that we provide. And so I think as you compare and contrast Nintendo with other players in the space, for us it’s about games, about the fun, about the entertainment value, and not about the tech.
What do you think? Will Nintendo be able to hold its own this holiday season? Sound off in the comments below with your thoughts.
