The launch line-up for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has failed to ignite much interest from Nintendo of America boss, Reggie Fils-Aime.
Speaking with IGN (via VG247) in light of the price cut for Wii U yesterday, the Reginator made it clear he wasn’t very impressed Sony and Microsoft’s day-one offerings.
“It’s all about the games. The competitive systems have announced their launch lineups. I’m allowed to say ‘Meh’," he said.
“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.”
Files-Aime explained that Nintendo’s philosophy is very much centred on offering consumers a fun experience, without having to flex its tech muscles.
“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.”
How do you feel about Fils-Aime’s comments on PS4 and Xbox One’s line-up? Do you feel they are underwhelming? Or do you think both formats have more than enough to compete with Wii U’s holiday line-up? Let us know in the comments section below.
