Wii U Versions of Third-Party Games Are Dramatically Better, Nintendo Says

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime is quite confident in the Wii U's games

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime believes that third-party games that appear on the Wii U as well as on the PS3 or Xbox 360 look dramatically better on the new home console than on the older ones.

The Wii U came out in North America one week ago and is currently getting ready to debut in Europe on November 30 and in Japan next week.

Until then, Nintendo has been hyping up the capabilities of the new device and showcasing its major features, from the GamePad to the improved hardware, that's better than the PS3 or Xbox 360.

Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has talked with CNN and emphasized the difference between the Wii U and other consoles.

"The specs are quite different than the competitive systems; much more graphically intensive," he said. "If you do a side-by-side comparison you would see that third-party games like Call of Duty look dramatically better on our system."

In terms of future-proofing the console against next-generation devices like the PlayStation 4 or Xbox 720, Fils-Aime is confident that the second-screen experience, delivered through the Wii U's GamePad, will attract lots of people in the near future.

"In terms of what competition’s going to do in the future: we’ll see. We know based on our own development this two screen experience really is the next innovation that consumers are gravitating to," he added.

Fils-Aime also emphasized that the low stocks experienced after the Wii U's launch in North America will be solved as soon as possible.

"It’s selling extremely well here in the Americas. Already stocks are quite low in the marketplace; we’re rapidly replenishing. So for us, certainly the consumer’s deciding that the innovation is well worth their investment."

Nintendo is now getting ready to debut the Wii U in Europe and Japan in the following weeks and this is truly going to test the power of its manufacturing process.
