Nintendo: 'New things are difficult for people to understand'

Satoru Iwata likens current feelings towards the Wii U to the situation the Wii was in years ago.

The Wii U has faced strong criticism since its showing at E3 last month, but Nintendo is keen to point out that the firm has been in a similar position before but came good in the end.

This negative view of the Wii U is partly down to new things being difficult for people to understand, according to Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata.

"A lot of misunderstandings and pessimistic observations, like, 'Will a product like this really spread in the market?' prevail and then after some time, after being able to experience it, the atmosphere changes."

Nintendo it is your job to convey this message to your audience though. You can't expect people to just understand the product and what you are trying to say. The consumers won't get the advantages of the Wii-U to a Wii, I won't be surprised if people think it is an add-on.

Sure the consumer is suppose to research and other stuff but realistically they won't.

that quote is pretty much said by any apple fanatic that believe ipad 2 is somehow far superior to ipad 1 and worth 1000 dollars

oh dont you worry, nintendo has a MEDIA BLAST when it comes time to release something, usually 1 to 2 months before

they do it with pretty much every release

you know so little about a game
then nearing release you have more than enough information

I'm sorry, but please continue to demean the customers. We always love it when we get shown up by a smartass yelling 'YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND'.

Well, luckily for them, majority of the gaming world won't see this.

in all fairness
ALOT of that talk comes from apple fanatics that cling to their precious overpriced paper weight. uh i mean ipad

and then the other part is internet trolls who just spew hate

i mean cmon if you dont know by now what the wiiu is then idk whats wrong with you

even in the store its not like people can just think the wiiu gamepad is a controller and then just buy the controller

they wont sell them seperate

theyll be like why is it so expensive?
oh maam because its an entire different nintendo with new games and more wii fit

more wii fit!???? :o i'll take two!
pretty much that

"You have some anger towards apple I see?"

About to say the same thing.

Nintendo must really struggle to understand the internet then

Knushwood Butt2693d ago

I think they're too busy trying to understand the Wii U themselves.

Maybe Iwata should focus on doing that rather than all the damage control he's doing these days.

Shut up Nintendo. We don't need some gimmicky controller on a console that should have come out a few years ago. Their big problem is they care more about controllers than pushing everything else. The current generation have proved most games are better off with the old style controllers.

Brian, I have a suggestion, if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all.
Just because you don't like Nintendo doesn't mean others can't. We don't all have to be in love with the Playstation 3 which is very expensive and the games are $60 compared to the Wii's games which are $50. Don't talk about something if you don't have any idea what the heck you're talking about.
Oh,and one more thing Brian, quit trolling on Nintendo and Microsoft Articles. We don't need it.
