Interview: Nintendo's Fils-Aime talks Wii U ( It's Profitable )

Mercury News: When Nintendo introduced the Wii six years ago, the game console was met with skepticism by many in the game industry but was quickly embraced by the public. The company hopes the same thing is about to happen with the Wii U, which goes on sale Sunday.

As president of Japan-based Nintendo's American subsidiary, Reggie Fils-Aime is responsible for promoting the Wii U here. While he faced a challenge with the Wii, his job is arguably more difficult this time around. (Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aime, Wii U)

This is the price of cheap hardware (affordability). But good business strategy by ninty.

I hope sony takes a year to be profitable I want more power & a good price.

But maybe ya'll don't understand me.

Not everyone has your money and the rich are not the only ones who should should be able to play video games so i think that everyone should and what if there is no difference in graphics between the 2? Will you pass on the ps4, or 720?

I bet my entire gaming collection that the next PS / XBX will not launch at the same prices they did back in 2006.
