iOS developer declares Wii U a “Fisher Price iPad”
Michael Schade, the CEO of German developer Fishlabs, described the Wii U as a “Fisher Price iPad,” following a comment that the dedicated console market is dying – this shortly after an analyst predicted the exact opposite, no less.
Nintendo… if you read about what Iwata said about iPhone, how he didn’t take it seriously, and now they come out with a Wii U that looks like a Fisher Price iPad. I mean, they had a great success introducing the Wii, and you should respect that, but right now everything tells me that Nintendo are not in a good way.
His company is a studio that develops iOS games exclusively, and there’s nothing wrong with that; but this sounds almost like an insult to Nintendo. The iPad and the Wii U share a large touchscreen, but the similarities end there – the Wii U’s buttons, Circle Pads, and ergonomics set it apart as a viable gaming device, while the iPad’s slim form factor makes it a good business and web surfing device.
