Real Talk By: KJ
We grab a quote from someone who is a part of the industry. Something was said, that was undeniably real. The following pertains to The Nintendo NX. The marketing surrounding the Wii U may have left some confused. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé wanted to make things clearer:
“One of the things that we have to do better when we launch the NX—we have to do a better job communicating the positioning for the product. We have to do a better job helping people to understand its uniqueness and what that means for the game playing experience. And we have to do a better job from a software planning standpoint to have that continuous beat of great new games that are motivating more and more people to pick up the hardware and more and more people to pick up the software. Those are the critical lessons. And as I verbalize them, they’re really traditional lessons within the industry. You have to make sure people understand the concept, you have to make sure you’ve got a great library of games, and when you do that, you tend to do well.”
My main issue lies in the lack of games. I enjoyed many Nintendo published titles, but the lack of third-party support hurt my overall enjoyment. For example, i’d play through Star Fox Zero. It’s completed, it was cool, then there’s a long wait period. PS4, and XO doesn’t feel like that since they had support from outside companies. Plenty to play while waiting for Naughty Dog’s next epic, or a New chapter in Halo. Hopefully Nintendo has truly learned from the past. Seems like they are listening.
