Research firm Forrester just released their yearly consumer experience chart, and Nintendo emerged as the top pick in the consumer electronics category. Nintendo, with its Wii, Wii U, and 3DS consoles, beat out the heavy weights from Apple, Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung. Overall, Nintendo scored 83 points out of 100, while the runner up, Apple, scored 79. Sony came in at third with 76 points, followed by Samsung at 75.
This is great news for Nintendo, a company that has been struggling over the past few years with slow sales and a declining share price. Nintendo’s latest console, the Wii U, has been doing well in the marketplace, but even Nintendo acknowledged that it could be better. Wii U sales have been lower than both the Wii and the GameCube.
Nintendo has a lot in store for the Wii U. Pikmin 3 is coming out in a few months, and later this year (hopefully), we’ll get Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, which was just announced yesterday. Check out some amazing screenshots from the game.
