"We want fantastic content for that more active player who loves Metroid or Zelda [..] and we also recognize that we don't create that type of content ourselves.We're not good at it and it's not a key focus area."
Nintendo are not good at core games, nor did they focus on them. Reggie has literally said that. Two titles is next to nothing. The Wii was not aimed at core gamers and has cost them customer retention. If you won't accept that, you are arguing with Reggie, not me.
Does Nintendo make games like COD, Battlefield, Bioshock? No. MS and Sony do, but Nintendo don't and those types of games are popular with core gamers that they want to attract with WiiU.
Just because Reggie only mentioned two titles doesn't mean that's the only core franchises they have. WTF...
Play4Fun listed some games for you that you seemed to ignore and he also got another quote of Reggie's:
"So we’ll continue to have all the family-friendly fare like Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Brothers U… but in addition, we’re going to have more active gamer content, which was something that was missing other than from Nintendo’s first party titles."
Notice what he says ? That Nintendo provided core first party titles for Wii. It's 3rd party core titles that they were lacking and are now looking to get with WIi U. It wasn't all just Wiifits, Wiimusic, Wiisports, NSMBWII or whatever that Nintendo released on Wii, there was also SMG, DKCR, Smash Bros, Sin and Punishment, Punch Out, Zelda TP & SS, Metroid, last Story, XenoBlade. It's pretty stupid to try to argue that those games are casual games. Use your common sense.
Before you drag me into an argument and make me waste my time too, I'm going to ask you, what is the definition of a core game?
