Online Spanish magazine, La Tercera, recently caught up with Nintendo of America COO (Reggie Fils-Amie) and asked why the Wii U has failed to excite consumers. Fils-Amie had this to say:
“When we launched Wii U, we missed the opportunity to be clear on the concept, to show off its capabilities and what the users could do. And that hurt us. Sales were also hurt, during the beginning of its lifespan, by the lack of games. And although we’ve sold 13 million consoles, against 20 and 40 million from the competition (Microsoft and Sony, respectively), what pleases us the most is that Wii U has the games with the best reviews and ratings from fans.”
I recently wrote an article on why I think the Wii U failed which you can read here.
