Ubisoft really has a huge hard-on for the Wii U. Which is quite awesome for Nintendo! Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft’s CEO strongly feels like the Wii U will change the gaming industry, and hey, why shouldn’t it? The original DS changed how we play games, and now you see all these people playing games with their touchscreen smart phones.
Nintendo even got Sony and Microsoft on board with the whole motion control craze. Why did they even bother? Its obvious, Nintendo knows what they’re doing, and sure we’ve had a bit of a software drought lately, but with a new system coming along, and the 3DS still fresh in our minds, I think its just fine. It’s quite awesome to see all the support the Wii U is getting from third party developers, and no one’s even mentioned duct tape. Here’s what Yves had to say!
We feel this console is coming with very innovative features that will change the video game industry and we want to be a part of that… I love that you have a screen very close to you. You can get information and send it as well. But you don’t have to learn too many things….I think it’s sending the message that the new transition is going to happen – and we’re going to have new machines coming soon.
Awesome. Personally I think the Wii U is going to be a hit. We’re seeing a lot more third party support from great companies, and the fact that they have all these great things to say about it really puts my mind at ease regarding Nintendo’s future. It’ll be fun to see what these developers have in store for the console, and it looks like 2012 shall be an interesting year.
