Reggie’s Body Is Not Ready For PS4, Xbox One
Nintendo of America’s boss Reggie “my body is ready” Fils-Aime is not well known for particularly insightful industry opinions. In fact he’s only really well known because we’re hoping he’ll say something dopey and silly again. Well, that attentiveness has paid off because he’s not keen for next-gen and his reasoning is pretty interesting. In fact, when looking at the consoles’ launch line-up his reaction was “meh.”
In an IGN interview, Fils-Aime was asked for his thoughts on the yesterday’s Wii U price-cut announcement and what incentives there are to get new customers on board with the format. He replied, “It’s all about the games. The competitive systems have announced their launch lineups. I’m allowed to say ‘Meh’.

“I look at our lineup of titles and I feel good about our lineup. We’ve got Zelda. We’ve got Mario. We’ve got Donkey Kong. In addition to great titles like Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, I feel very good about our lineup, and I feel very good about the value proposition we’re putting out there for the consumer.”
In the end, Fils-Aimes said all he wants is to give consumes fun gaming experiences. “We’ve got cloud technology that we’re delivering with Wii U. Nintendo TVii is all cloud-based technology. But the difference is, we don’t talk about the tech. We talk about the experience.
“We make sure that the consumer has fun with the game experiences that we provide. And so I think as you compare and contrast Nintendo with other players in the space, for us it’s about games, about the fun, about the entertainment value, and not about the tech.”
Wow Reggie, just wow. Admittedly there are only a handful of titles that I’m really, really looking forward in terms at launch for the PS4 but did he honestly just pull out Zelda, Mario, Donkey Kong and Pikmin as trump cards? I’ll let your comments tear him apart.
