The Wii U is a unique experience that the gaming industry has been calling out for, according to Nintendo of America's Scott Moffitt.
ummm sorry thats the other way around. You Need Us, we made you.
Don't let the disagrees make you sad, you said the truth. We don't need any of these companies; however, they effectively needs us. That goes for everyone, not only Nintendo.
Gamers need miyamoto.
NEWEGG IS NOW SELLING THE WII U SYSTEM
I was 7 years old when the first NES was released with the Robot and Gyromite. From there I owned the SNES and the N64, but Nintendo could not meet the adult demands that Sony provided. After christmas of 1998, I have not played a Nintendo product. I welcome Nintendo to the HD generation of consoles, and like mentioned above, grandma, grandpa, the little kiddies, and the casual nostalgic gamer need Nintendo too. Will Nintendo sell some consoles? Sure. Will they get my dollars? No. The major concern that I have from Nintendo is if they cared so much about the hardcore gamer why are they still using an antiquated online service? Why not include a bluray player? Lastly, why not include a regular laptop SATA Hard drive that is easily upgradeable? Personally, I stopped caring about Nintendo when they stopped caring about me, the gamer. For example, with the N64, they kept with the cartridges to control piracy, but they limited themselves with the on board memory restrictions that it posed. Square Enix, a long time Nintendo supporter jumped to Sony and never looked back. What does that say? Same thing with Capcom. The resident Evil series were re-releases on the Gamecube for all but one game, Resident Evil Zero. Even though the Resident Evil Series left Sony during the PS2 era, Sony got a new IP in Devil may cry. Lets hope that most of the games on the WiiU are not shovel ware like the last generation Wii. Most importantly, wow the gamers with something incredible instead of a gimmick. Thanks, in advance.
Despite the article title nowhere in the quotes did he say that gamer's need them. He said that the GAMING MARKET (and by extension gamers) were in need of an innovative way to play right now, and that he felt Nintendo provided that innovation, along with some other typical PR stuff. While I don't completely agree with that quote, I can't say that it hasn't gone unnoticed on here how many people have said that this generation has stagnated, so in a way many people should agree with at least that part of his assertion. Up for debate is whether Nintendo delivers that innovation or not.
No, I don't need Nintendo.
Quite an arrogant thing for ANY company to say. Good thing Nintendo didn't say it. Gaming, as much as I love it, is not a necessity. Therefore, though I am a gamer, I NEED no company. On the other hand, these companies DO need us. And as far as gaming is concerned, Nintendo may need gamers more than the other two, since virtually ALL of their revenue is from games and gaming-related products. Sony's in pretty heavy need, as well, since the Playstation is their most successful division(though the music and movie divisions are also profitable), but they've got lots of assets in other markets. And Microsoft... well.
