With the Wii U Nintendo is now an 'entertainment company' again

The Wii U marks a significant change of pace for Nintendo, a brand up until now exclusively associated with Mario and Zelda. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime met with CNET to discuss this transformation. (Industry, Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aime, Wii U)

The Nintendo Wii U entertainment was specifically designed for exactly that.

Nintendo is bringing forth a platform designed to touch the heart of the consumer. A platform that literally does it all. From bleeding edge graphical capability, a new and refined online structure, down to an advanced touch screen game pad offered standard with every unit purchase. Completely redefining the value of entertainment for a home console purchase. Offering multiple unique never before seen experiences. Bringing to the table much more this time around than just Nintendos awarding gaming experiences, and top of the line gameplay. The Nintendo brand has officially expanded.

On top of the bells and whistles, Nintendo is the most popular, and celebrated brand in gaming when exclusive content is concerned. Over decades and generations, offering Nintendo supporters worldwide the most critically acclaimed exclusive titles in the world today. Along with the most famous, and talked about mascots to ever graze the videogame spectrum. The entertainment value from these in house developed titles at times go beyond gaming. Some only comparable to the very best of Walt Disney film.

Happily the good news does not stop there. Not only has Nintendo provided years of top notch console experiences. But an undefeated streak of industry leading handheld experiences as well. That trend looks to continue into the distant future with the already successful Nintendo 3DS entertainment system currently up at bat. Home entertainment, on the go entertainment, it looks like the Nintendo product line has all its bases covered. Online and off.

Rated E For Everyone

@ blahblah346, Back off.. Let him express his enthusiasm.. This is a nintendo article is it not? U dont have to read it either..

The day is coming when Vita & PS4 will rule all regions of the grid.. For now i can accept 3DS' dominance.. It doesnt change the amount of software i get to play so theres no point in bitching about other ppl being happy about nintendos success..

As long as the Wii U gets a respectable library of good games Nintendo can call itself whatever it wants.

If stupid blind Nintendo's fanboys start to buy again only stupid Nintendo games like Mario devs will change their minds and will stop to make games for WII U
