Though the Wii U’s performance has been pretty disappointing since it took of last December, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto remains optimistic about the console’s future.
While Sitting down for a chat with the New York Times, Miyamoto said he wasn’t worried about the Wii U sales in the long term. ”I think that the Wii U still has a long future, said Miyamoto. “We really view it as being the ideal device that families are going to want to have connected to that screen in the living room that everyone is going to gather around and watch.
Certainly in the short term I would want to see it performing with probably a little more momentum. I think in the long term I’m not at a point where I’m concerned yet.”
Quite the optimistic fellow Miyamoto is. However, the Wii U still needs to secure stronger sales down the road, especially if it has any hope of competing with the upcoming competition including the previously announced PlayStation 4 and the yet to be announced Next Xbox.
