Ubisoft EMEA executive director Alain Corre has defended the Wii U in a recent interview. Corre says that people shouldn’t write off the Wii U just yet as it generally takes time for a console to establish itself in the marketplace. Corre believes that when the games come sales of ailing console will pick up and says it’s too premature to predict its demise just yet.
“It takes time for a machine to establish itself.”
“We’ve seen in the past that when more games come, the console picks up. That is what we believe will happen for Wii U. There is a place in the market for each console, and with the right games Wii U will find its public and sell in the long-term.”
“One single game can change a platform’s fortunes – it happened for the DS, it happened for the Super Nintendo. I believe it can be the same for Wii U.”
