Wii U Demo Impresses, Creates Concerns

Posted by | August 9, 2012

Nintendo is shopping their upcoming Wii U system around to introduce it to developers and selected members of the public. The results have been interesting. While the console itself impresses, developers are concerned about making games for the Wii U. As a new system, it doesn’t have the same audience behind it as established consoles, reducing the number of potential customers for new games. This access barrier also troubled the original Wii. Can Nintendo bridge the gap between players and developers again? Ars Technica has the story.

    The Wii U is such an odd duck of a system that it’s going to have to find a whole new audience, both in players and developers, before it can become a successful console. Nintendo has a few tricks up its sleeve, so they can probably pull it off. Still, will the Wii U become the console of choice for game developers?
