Nintendo’s “Created Something Good” With The Wii U, According To Ubsioft’s CEO
Ubisoft was one of the shining showcases at this year’s E3, receiving plenty of praise from showfloor attendees and viewers over the internet, and for good reason too. The intriguing games that were shown off, in conjunction with their appearance at Nintendo’s time of the stage, capped off a good show for the prominent game publisher. It was also noted that the Wii U was shown off quite a bit in their conference, and Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has apparently stated the company’s support for the console in a recent interview with Gamasutra, also telling us how “risky” it is:
I think Nintendo has very often surprised us, so you never know. I think they’ve created something good, if the customer uses everything they have created, I think we can see a good success with that machine. That type of collaboration can be fun and also challenging at the same time. It’s something has never been done before. … Those guys are taking lots of risks with the games they create — and they’re extremely successful.
Well, as we all know, any new console being released does come with an awful amount of risks, especially when it’s paving the way as the first of its generation. But how big a risk do you believe the Wii U is posing for its manufacturers? Air out your opinions below.
