Nintendo may not be prepared to talk about the Wii U price yet, but when it arrives later this year it will have a stronger day one offer than the 3DS launch, Nintendo UK boss David Yarnton told MCV.
One of the problems with 3DS was content. When we launched we didn’t have the content we do now, or the functionality for download games either. We do have that now, and did get there a few months after launch.
But with the Wii U, we had 23 games on show at E3, plus Netflix and Amazon and other services all hopefully for launch – it’s a great value proposition.”
He explained that the firm is still not in the stage” to discuss pricing but said we have a cost we have to hit to get our money back”.
