Patcher: Wii U “Isn’t Going To Work”
“I don’t get it [the Wii U] ” Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Patcher said at the Develop Conference in Brighton UK last week Eurogamer reported today.
“I think that essentially this is a solution in search of a problem. I mean, somebody had an idea – ‘let’s make the controller a tablet’ – and there aren’t many games that are going to take advantage of that.
“Activision never said anything to me, but I know that [for] big games like Call Of Duty they said, ‘No, we’re not putting it on there if you don’t give us a conventional controller’. So they [Nintendo] gave in.”
Patcher continued saying the Wii U “isn’t going to work.”
And the infamous games industry analyst isn’t too impressed by the Wii either calling the console “gimmicky. It worked, they got lucky, [but] I don’t think they’re getting lucky with Wii U.
“I don’t think they suck – I just think that they really believe that, ‘If we’re still novel, everything we do will work’. This isn’t going to work.
“Hardcore gamers will buy them; hardcore Nintendo fanboys will buy it. They could put out a piece of cardboard and say that it’ll play Mario and they’ll buy it.”
The Pro Controller for the Wii U was announced at a special Nintendo Direct pre-E3 event. The Wii U is due to come out later this year though pricing and an exact release date have not yet been revealed.
