  • Wii U launch games list yet to be finalized say Reggie

    Nintendo is yet to finalize confirmed list of launch games for their upcoming console Wii U, according to Nintendo America President Reggie Fils Aime.

    Nintendo Wii UReggie added that things are still not yet confirmed because Nintendo wants to assess the reaction of fans from E3 2012, and this is one of the main reason why the firm did not announce release date and price of Wii U.

    In a interview to Globe and Mail, Reggie said, "The rationale is this: We want to see what resonates,"

    "We want to understand which games and experiences really resonate with consumers, and then use that information to make decisions moving forward. This is something we've done every launch year. We did it with DS, we did it with Wii, we did it with 3DS."

    "We'll take all of the information coming from E3 and use it to make final decisions on launch date, launch price, configuration, launch day software, launch window software, and follow up-software. Because now we have the benefit of information."

    So this mean it is still not confirmed whether we will see Batman: Arkham City, Mass Effect 3 and others on Wii U launch day.

  • Reggie Fils-Aime: Mobile games with a price tag of $2 one of the biggest threat to industry

    Reggie Fils-Aime, the President and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo of America, said that mobile games with a price tag of $2 in App Store are one of the biggest threat to gaming industry as it forces consumers to believe that games on other platforms should also carries a similar price tag. The consumers doesn't take into account the difference in development cost and also the quality of games on other platform.

    Speaking in the latest issue of GTTV Reggie said, "I actually think that one of the biggest risks today in our industry are these inexpensive games that are candidly disposable from a consumer standpoint.  Angry Birds is a great piece of experience but that is one compared to thousands of other pieces of content that for one or two dollars I think actually create a mentality for the consumer that a piece of gaming content should only be two dollars.

    I actually think some of those games are overpriced at one or two dollars but that’s a whole different story."

    It will be interesting to see what price tag Nintendo put on 3DS version of Angry Birds which is slated to release later in the year, will it be under $2?
