Wii U Is “Two Years Last”, Says Analyst Firm

Although most of the media was more/less pleased with the announcement of Wii U, Wedbush Morgan Securities sees the new console as outdated and coming two years late.

“We think that Wii U is arriving two years late, given that the other HD consoles already have peripherals for movement,” said a note from the company, attributed to Michael Pachter, Edward Woo and Nick McKay.

“As Nintendo did not provide any specifics around the new console’s power or pricing, we are assuming that the Wii U is unlikely to provide greater power than the current HD consoles,” the note continued, referring to the statement made by NoA boss Regie Fils-Aime that footage shown at E3 was actually of PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the games.

“If that is the case, we believe Nintendo has conceded a tremendous first mover advantage to Microsoft and Sony, which launched Kinect and Move control schemes, respectively, in late 2010.”
