EA think the Wii U is “absolutely” next gen
There has been quite a debate going on about where the Wii U ‘sits’, in terms of console generations, ever since it was revealed at E3 2011. Some people have described the Wii U as a machine in-between this generation and the next, others believe that the Wii U is truly a next generation console and some have claimed it is not as powerful as this generation of HD consoles.
Adding to this to this debate, EA’s Cam Weber has claimed that the Wii U is truly a next generation console. In an interview with Game Informer, when asked whether the Wii U was a next generation console he said:
Absolutely. It’s a [new] platform with a new controller input, so we’ll do everything we can to deliver an experience that will take advantage of the hardware for that consumer.
