News: Wii U Can ‘Fend Off’ Its Next-Gen Competitors – Reggie

‘The Wii U will last this long’

With Nintendo’s next-generation Wii U console barely outperforming its current-generation competitors in terms of raw power (innovation is a different story), many gamers’ concerns regarding Nintendo standing up to Microsoft’s and Sony’s next efforts are not unfounded – after all, Wii owners have had to cope with inferior ports, or a complete lack of third-party games for a majority of the seventh console generation.

However, the ever-confident Reggie Fils-Aime has expressed his thoughts in terms of third-party support for the Wii U, and how it’ll fare against the systems it’ll undoubtedly be going head-to-head with in the near future:

Q: Will the Wii U and its capabilities last you through the next console generation?

A: We think so. It’s based on having great graphics, it’s based on having a robust online execution. we believe that this system is going to have a very long life, and it’s going to be very well supported by third-party publishers.

Q: Can you fend off the Xbox 720 and PS4?

Once you talk about what that is, we can probably fend it off.

Is Reggie being over-confident here, or can Nintendo really have the weakest console of the generation and remain on top for the second year running?
