Shuhei Yoshida: Wii U is “its own generation”
Shuhei Yoshida does not think of Wii U as a next-generation consoles instead he thinks it’s its own generation. Sort of like the Wii, where it wasn’t really comparable to PS3 and 360 in power but managed to stay relevant.
“Personally, I have always thought Wii was in a generation of its own,” he told Eurogamer.
Yoshida revealed why he believes that and also mentioned that it will do well.
“I always thought PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are in the same generation, but Wii was not the same. To me, the industry was growing really fast when those three platforms came up because the focus is so different.
“The PS3 and the 360 were the closest in terms of high definition and networked services. But Wii carved out a large niche to itself. To me, it was like two generations going at the same time. Wii U is the next generation of Wii. That I understand. To me, it’s its own generation.”
