Reggie: Wii U is not “going to be a hard sell”
Much like the issue with not being able to experience the 3DS’s glasses-free 3D without seeing it in person, it might be difficult for some people to acknowledge the gameplay possibilities that the Wii U’s tablet controller holds.
But Reggie is quite confident that getting consumers to realize them won’t be an issue, telling us that he doesn’t think it’s “going to be a hard sell”.
We’re essentially creating a whole new type of game. It’s not handheld, it’s not a tablet, it’s a different type of experience. It’s an experience that most consumers have said, wow, I’d love to do that. I’d love to be able to have my home console gaming experience while my spouse is watching something else, whether that’s live sports, whether that’s some other entertainment option. Once it’s described, people are tremendously excited about it.
If that last line is true, I think Nintendo needs to describe the Wii U a little better. The general reaction I’m seeing on the Internet isn’t one of “tremendous excitement”. Even I will admit that I’m still somewhat skeptical of the Wii U, despite owning this fan site dedicated to it.
