The Wii U has not gotten off to a great start. Although November sales for the console were good, the months that followed haven’t been too great. Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto is looking on the bright side of things and is confident the console will have a long future.
Speaking to the New York Times, Miyamoto said he’d like to see stronger sales for the Wii U but is confident that more people will buy the console in due time.
“I think that the Wii U still has a long future. We really view it as being the ideal device that families are going to want to have connected to that screen in the living room that everyone is going to gather around and watch. Certainly in the short term I would want to see it performing with probably a little more momentum. I think in the long term I’m not at a point where I’m concerned yet.”
Hopefully the Wii U finds an audience. It will be hard to achieve this once the PS4 and Xbox 720 hits sometime later this year.
