Nintendo has declared that it will not launch its upcoming Wii U console unprepared, with a day one software lineup that will better that of the 3DS last year.
The promise came from Nintendo UK boss David Yarnton, who admitted that the company's 3D-capable handheld took "a few months" to become a viable purchase. "One of the problems with 3DS was content. When we launched we didn't have the content we do now, or the functionality for download games either," he told MCV.
"But with the Wii U, we had 23 games on show at E3, plus Netflix and Amazon and other services all hopefully for launch ? it?s a great value proposition." Besides that, Yarnton was keeping his lips sealed - so no comment on the recent Amazon pre-order pricing - but he did reveal that Nintendo has "a cost we have to hit to get our money back."
