Naughty Dog Dev On Wii U: "I'm Not Completely Sold"
Come on. It must've been a coincidence that Nintendo's stock dropped after unveiling the Wii U at E3.
While we certainly remain skeptical, a great many Wii fans are excited. Aren't they? Developers and analysts have been weighing in as well, although most are reserved in their comments. Take Naughty Dog game director Justin Richmond, for example, who told NowGamer that he isn't "completely sold" on Nintendo's new console yet. That being said, he wasn't sold on the original Wii, either, and "look how that did." Added Richmond:
"To be honest with you, the idea of it is very, very cool. But there's nothing that the Wii U has that the Vita and PS3 doesn't. You know, it's an interesting piece of technology, and I'm interested to see how people use it."
He went on to say the Wii U has some "very strange holes in it" and the screen not being multi-touch is a "little weird." But even so, he's convinced that games made for the system could be amazing; after all, Nintendo has always fared well with their first-party gems. Personally, I couldn't possibly care less but Nintendo had me at hello. ...love my SNES.
