Nintendo has already launched its new console, Wii U, last year however, EA CEO, John Riccitiello, believes that ‘next-gen’ console from Nintendo is yet to come. This is what he had to say regarding the matter:
You never count Nintendo out. When their marquee titles show up, that’s when you usually see the bounce.
Furthermore, Riccitiello also said that while Wii U technically maybe a next-gen console, the fourth-generation would not truly arrive until Sony and Microsoft come out with their new consoles.
Ours is an industry where a lot of devices come in and represent the next generation after that. In many ways, we would argue that what we’re describing as ‘gen four’ [the fourth generation of consoles with 3D graphics] is yet to come.
That’s what we’re excited about, and that’s what we’re investing in.
