Contrary to the belief that the launch of Xbox One and PS4 could completely throw the Wii U from the market, Nintendo firmly maintains that the new console could turn out to be good for business.
The Company president Satoru Iwata doesn’t seem too boggled about Microsoft and Sony’s new gadgets. In fact, Iwata holds the thought that consoles would help bring casual players back to the world of gaming. If they can’t get their hands on an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4 this holiday season, then they might head for a Wii U.
According to Gamespot, the Nintendo president addressed the upcoming release of the new consoles and here’s what he had to say on the subject:
“I think the launch of other video game systems is also good for us because they energize the video game industry as a whole. Though there are some who take the view that intensified competition means overseas competition will be tough for Nintendo, no matter how Nintendo does domestically, I do not necessarily see it that way. This year, what Nintendo is promoting is, conversely, to stand out in the game industry for individuality. I believe we have become a unique value.”
“Based on early demand projections we are already anticipating that Xbox One will be sold out this holiday. We are encouraging consumers interested in Xbox One to pre-order now or shop early as we anticipate selling every unit we deliver to retail this holiday,” a company representative explained to NBC News.
