Some things never change. Nintendo, when it unveiled the Wii in 2006 was lampooned by the media for being out of sync with what gamers wanted. They were also judged by the media who claimed that the Wii, once released, would be the end of the legendary company. But we all know the story, Wii has sold more units than any other console this generation and has made Nintendo a great fortune.
Yet some things never change. The same story can be told for Wii U. When the machine was first unveiled last year, the same judgement was cast: “It will fail”, and “Nintendo is out of touch” is what you’d hear around media circles, leading me to believe that the human memory is either weak on remembering or we’re simply too bugged down with other things that we quickly forget the past.
When Nintendo held its Japan, Europe and U.S. Nintendo Direct events two days ago, everyone started signing a different tune. I fully expect Nintendo’s new console to be highly successful, selling at least 7 million units by March of next year, and a good 17-20 million by the time PS4 and Xbox 720 are released. That, my friends, will once again put Nintendo ahead of its competition at least in units sold.
Some things never change.
It’s the Weekend, friends, what’s going on?
For me, I’m attending a party later this evening, but my weekend will be rather quiet. I’m actually awaiting Borderlands 2’s release because it’s been a while since I got into a brand new game, and I’m a bit bored with Battlefield 3.
Yeah, I know, boring weekend. Maybe yours is a bit more interesting so share it! and have a great weekend!
