Say what? Similar consoles? But isn’t the Wii U doing poorly? Like very poorly? Yes it is. So this kind of sounds like insanity. Satoru Iwata of Nintendo has announced that their next generation of consoles will be similar to one another unlike their past offerings.
What he means is that the GameCube and the Nintendo DS were different. Just like the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. He thinks that in the future we will see a “similar” handheld and console which will be cross compatible with one another. It sounds like a great idea actually. Then again, I’m sure that the Wii U sounded like a great idea too.
Whatever they come up with has got to be better than what they have going on now. It is an interesting time to watch the company and to see how they handle this predicament. Maybe they can overcome the failure of the Wii U and rise to gaming glory again. Or maybe their best days are behind them. What do you think? I’m still watching, but I’m not optimistic after watching them blunder again and again.
