Nintendo Confident of Thrid Party Support


The Xbox One and PS4 are just around the corner, but whilst excitement builds for them, don't forget about another console already out, the Wii U. The Wii U has not been doing to well with sales since its launch, and this may largely be down to a lack of third party titles. With the new Xbox and Play Station just over a month away, its not looking like it will get any better, but despite this Nintendo seems to remain confident in their console. Speaking with Forbes, Scott Moffitt, Nintendo’s EVP of Sales & Marketing for Nintendo of America, stated that 'We’re confident that we have the games necessary—both first- and third-party—to have a strong holiday season and expand the audience for Wii U'. Its a viscous circle, the reason people may be not by buying the Wii U is because of the lack of third party games, then these game fail to come to the console because of the lack of sales. Hopefully through Nintendo can turn these slow sales around. Besides having an, in my opinion, amazing line up of exclusives, such as Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, the Mario games, Super Smash Bros and Pikmin, they do have a few third party games on the way this holiday season, such as Batman: Arkham Origins, Watch Dogs, Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag and Call of Duty Ghosts. Their not missing out on everything then.
