Nintendo's Iwata: "we just do not care what kind of 'more beef' console Microsoft and Sony might produce"

Put a jet engine in them if you like - Nintendo doesn't care how powerful Microsoft's and Sony's new consoles are.

"Even when we were going to launch the Wii system, there were a lot of voice saying 'Nintendo should stop making hardware'," Iwata recalled, talking to Gamasutra.

"The reasoning behind that was Nintendo would not have any chance against Microsoft and Sony. The fact of the matter was: I did not think Nintendo should compete against these companies with the same message and same entertainment options for people.

"We have not changed our strategy," he added. "In other words, we just do not care what kind of 'more beef' console Microsoft and Sony might produce in 2013. Our focus is on how we can make our new console different than [others]."

It's a very typical Nintendo reaction. But it doesn't sit well with what Iwata said at the start of the month, when he attempted to allay shareholders' fears that the technological differences between Wii U and the other consoles wouldn't be as "drastic" as they thought they were between Wii and PS3, Xbox 360.

"Naturally, some consumers are very sensitive about such a small difference in graphics," said Satoru Iwata at the time, "so we will make efforts to make the most of the performance of the Wii U to keep up with technological innovations and not to make the system out-of-date soon."

Whether Nintendo really does care, we may not know until we properly dissect a retail Wii U this autumn (exact date still TBC). Strict NDAs and conflicting developer assumptions of Wii Us power will probably keep us guessing until then.

aw shit close this one



Ok......difference here between Wii and WiiU is that casuals, the main target of the Wii, dont care about graphics. Core gamers, the main target of the WiiU......care about graphics. I keep getting this feeling that the WiiU will have no home.

Casuals will be put off by the tablet controller (aka more complicated then extremely simple Wiimote controls)

Core gamers will be put off by the specs being current gen. If Nintendo doesnt care about what MS and Sony do, then listen to your own fans.

Which casuals have you been hanging around with, its only gonna attract them more to it, I've seen people who normally dont play video games getting ipads for games....and other stuff.

Core gamers can be easily pursuaded depending on the third party support, the wii's third party support was weak which was why it turned away people, graphics is nice, but I doubt it was the main reason it turned people away from the Wii.

Don't pay too much attention to him imo.



PS One/2/p/3slim/Vita owner. I survived the Apocalyps3/Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.


Xbox One: What are you doing Dave?

Casuals are put off all the time by iPads and stuff, he is 100% right....



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

I love how the 'gameplay over graphics' option in the poll is written in terrible spelling as if that's a stupid opinion.



I agree with everything Iwata says. I think its going to be strong, just not as strong as some were guessing early on, so they do not want to overhype people.

They don't care? They certainly cared about not having that third party support.
