In a recent interview with computerandvideogames.com, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has revealed that the Wii U’s problems right now has very little to do with the price (which is markedly higher than their previous consoles and with the current gen’s newer batches), but more to do with the lack of available software.
“The basic version should have sold a lot, but the fact of the matter is that people are buying more of the premium version. So the issue is not there,” says Iwata. “I understand that the real issue is the lack of software, and the only solution is to provide the mass-market with a number of quality software titles.”
Not that it’s a surprise, as many fans have already voiced out concerns over the distinct lack of new software to play on the Wii U, especially outside of first party titles. Thankfully, new titles both first party and 3rd party (including new IPs like the Wonderful 101) will be trickling down over the next few months, which means by the time Christmas rolls out, people will have a bunch of exciting new Wii U titles to try out.
