There aren’t a lot of decent video game shows out there, and G4TV’s X-Play has been known as one of the better ones — at least one of the more popular ones. In the latest episode, the crew talked about the upcoming Wii U, Nintendo’s strategy and shared their beliefs on whether it will be a success or not.
They give a brief roundup of what we already know about the Wii U, its GamePad controller, technology, Nintendo TVii, and other features. Then the crew discusses Nintendo’s strategy. In fact, they believe Nintendo markets the Wii U to the casual gamer and a broad market, instead of just core gamers.
They did seem optimistic about the Wii U, though. When asked about how well they think the Wii U will do, host Blair Herter believes that Nintendo will “make a ton of money” with the new console, while co-host Morgan Webb apparently still believes the Wii U is confusing. Back in June, she said that gamers are confused about the Wii U and that Nintendo “faces and uphill battle”.
